Try to buy things only when discounted, 50% off consumables and equiptment etc, 30-50% off tanks, it all adds up to a lot of savings. But you need to plan ahead to be most efficient.

Have you checked your depot?

 

When you upgrade your tank, change the gun, engine, etc. the old module goes in your depot.  If you never looked in there then you probably have millions of credits worth of stuff which you can sell.

These days it's pretty much premium account or GTFO.

 

Other then that, you should have a stroll around your depot to see if there are any old turrets, suspensions that you can sell.

 

Be carefull selling guns and engines though as they are often used by more then one tank, so make sure you only sell those that you won't need in the future, if not you'll be wasting money by selling them. Come to think of it, same goes for radios.

Play premium tanks and don't buy any new tanks for a while, that should do it.

Discounts, specials, premium account & tanks. Stock up on regular consumables and equipment when it's -50%.

Play mid tier tanks you like a lot. Don't think about the Ferdy, too much. Just play the game and enjoy the tanks you have.

It's on discount right now I believe. Better buy two to be sure, it could be as long as next week before it's on discount again...

Oh I remember the first time I did that, there was so much accumulated garbage to sell, I felt like a millionaire :)

Play mid tiers or premium tanks, avoid using premium ammo when it isn't necessary, make your shots count, survive.

Sell all the unneeded modules and ammo from past grinds (check your depot).

In the future: always buy consumables in bulk when they're 50% discounted. Same with equipment: only buy when discounted.

Also maybe reconsider buying a turretless TD in this day and age. :P

Better heavy tank than most tier X heavies...

 

Better medium tank than most tier X mediums...

So I found him a couple of alternatives.

It's ironic that people find the point of the game boring.

 

He wants credits, but finds playing the game to earn them boring, so why does he want to play again?

Beats me but the faster he finds out that tier X isn't any more fun than tier V the better for everyone I think.  Fort Knox will get him there in no time.

How not to get bored by it?

Get a Chi-Ha/He/Nu/To/Ri, and play those a lot.

Never got me bored.

 

Or you could always be a wallet warrior and simply buy the credits.

 

As for checking your depot; you could also sell any premium consumables you're not using.

Who knows; you might have dozens of food consumables laying in there for nations you don't play.

Fair enough. I assumed that since he asked for advice he wasn't planning on spending money so I just listed the general points for saving/earning credits.
