Yeah i play E25 and T23e3 quite a bit recently as I've given up spending money.

 

It's difficult to say how profitable they are but i suppose (guess) i average about 30k profit each game.

 

let me try have an average game now.

 

EDIT: well this is the problem - you will nearly always face tier 8s now and the T23E3 has poor pen which forces you to use some gold. fired 20 (10 gold) penned 10 and lost 11.6k with dying. :(

About 30k - 40k silver per game I'd say. Had an ace tanker game yesterday with 50k profit.
Panther M10 > Krupp Styr

Thanks for the opinions so far, i don't know if either Panther or Styr have priority on matchmaking, but i wasnt so inclined to Panther due to the lack of penetration.

I make about 20-30k a game in the type 62 using prem food consumable (more when prem discounts are on) but then I fire practically no premium rounds unless its a situation where I can't pen the side of a vehicle without it which is bloody rare.

 

E25 makes about 20-30k  credits also  but again I carry practically no prem rounds in the thing but use premium food consumables.

 

13 57 profitability is hurt by its poor accuracy which makes its poor pen even worse which highlights its poor ammo capacity, its hard to find a balance of standard rounds to prem rounds.

If you go to low on the prems you get gimped some games where you are in situations where you can't pen a multitude of targets on the enemy team even from the sides if you go to high on the prem rounds because of the low ammo capacity (and the fact its an autoloader) you end up kicking yourself because you run out of standard rounds and end up wasting prem on shitty targets, I average about 7-10k profit without prem food.

 

I taught the panther M10 was removed from the shop? is it going on sale again soon?

Panther M10 is in the INGAME TECHTREE atm and it costs 4025 gold due to the weekend special discount

Panther has preff MM whilst Krupp doesn't. Low pen on the M10 can get a bit annoying but unless its a Defender or VK P, the gold shell performs fine due to the good accuracy.

Its now available in the tech tree for gold, about 5,300 IIRC.

VK45.03 is also tier7 and performs very well.

E25 and Panther M10 are cheap as chips to run. Thus profits are bigger to. As each round costs 109 credits. So vs most of my tier 8 premiums when I don't run premium time. It's more common for me to pick a tier 7 over a tier 8 premium. But non premium my T26E4 makes rather good credits to for me anyway vs say the Lowe or IS-6 that spends a good penny on repairs and ammo.

In a few days the T-3485M hordes will be unleashed.T8 MM might be viable for some time.

For moneymaking get a Tier 8 tank with good pen.  Forget about tier 7 for moneymaking.

 

EDIT: no way you get 30-40k profit without prem time on tier 7 on a regular basis

I don't own any of those, though I'd say Panther over Steyr. Steyr is too fragile to be in the front line, so you most likely won't be spotting for yourself, hence sharing the profits. Plus the alpha damage is unremarkable and the speed seems limited. It lacks flexibility and the gun to make it useful, IMO.

 

Despite its lower pen, Panther has more HP, pref. MM ( which does make a difference at tier 7) and can bully lower tiers better. I believe that will yield better results.

What about VK 45.03? How does it really compare to tier 8 premium in terms of credit printing?

Yesterday i bought T7 VK45.03..... And man, out of 25 battles i was only once top tier.

 

The rest games where vs T9's. Its not bad tank, but having so many high tier games with such bad player base won't give you a lot of profit.

 

I stick to play T8 premiums for silvers, even if i see a lot of T10's. It's just sad how this new MM made hard time grinding slivers in randoms.

It received a buff and now makes credits the same as tier8 tanks.

 

I play with a premium account but an ok game of 2k-ish dmg will net you some 60-70k credits iirc.

 

My latest game with it:

 

Damage Dealt

2,079

 

Credits Net 64,453

Pt M10 is probably the best T7 med atm, T20 aside.

I have the E25, IS2, SU12244 of tier 7 prems and none can compare to the money making ability of tier 8 prems, especially if you plan not to use prem account. 

 

Tier 7s are mostly used for fun and some money, but serious money grinding? Go tier 8
