QB just did a video on the most profitable non prem tanks. I think the m44 came out on top.

If you can't/won't spend a few bucks on a premium tank, you might as well go ahead and sell your soul to the devil. :P

 

Jokes (?) aside, playing arty a lot (and God knows you will be if you're grinding credits with it) is a surefire way of becoming worse at actual tanks. Maybe not entirely, but it sure as heck doesn't help. Besides, QB states credits per battle. That's not a particularly useful metric. Try credits per minutes of boredom. Chances are you'll regret investing in arty to grind credits, unless you spend copious amounts of time in front of the computer with only one hand available. Might not be a terrible option if you want to watch TV at the same time, but still.

Hi!

> Best Silver grinding Non-premium tank

Best non-premium credit makers are at tier-5. Tier-6 is more interesting, but meets tier-8 way too often.

Best money maker used to be tier-5 french heavy BDR G1 B (http://wiki.wargamin...ank:F05_BDR_G1B), but usually one uses what he enjoys driving. Just avoid using expensive ( = "gold" ) ammo and consumables and keep in mind that doing damage makes credits and you'll do fine credit-vise.

 

BR,  Iztok

I did not thought,M44 can earn lots of silver.I think the french arty worth it.I play without,gold ammo and rarely using small consumables.I watch the video of Quickybaby,mostly there are tier 5 tanks.My thoughts are about T6-t8 tanks,which can be good at grinding silver.I think to stay at T8 mostly,cause the gap from lower tiers is huge.Besides earning crew experience in t7 and t8 is faster than t5.I do not like,playing premium tanks it is not fair against other players,that is how i feel.

Thank u for answers guys.

Tier 5 is good for credit farming, and a couple that are worth keeping even after you have researched past them are KV1 and T-34 - both have pretty quick reloads with their best guns, and KV1 especially has enough armour & hp to survive the odd mistake - this means you can keep dealing the damage for longer and earn the cash :)

 

Just noticed - why do you think "playing premium tanks it is not fair against other players"?

Best non arty is the Panzer IV H. Best overall is the M44.

Depends on your playstyle and what you prefer.

 

The tank with the highest credit-multiplier is the BDR G1 B.

But if you dont like it or it dont fit your playstyle, you will still dont make a lot of credits with it.

 

The most effective way in my opinion is scouting in the lower tiers.

Assisted damage gives you 50% of the Credits, as if you would have done this damage at your own.

 

Most tanks have bad viewrange in lower tiers, most players are bad and have bad crews. So nobody of your own team "steals" your spotting and nobody in the enemy team is able to counter you effectively.

Did around 50k pure profit per battle with the old ELC. This was before I had premiumtanks and way before the new matchmaking.

 

Simply keep the enemy visible and make your team fill your wallet with every shot they hit.

According to vbaddict you'd want to either sit in an SPG like M44, Hummel, Grille, Crusader 5.5 or AMX 13 F3 AM.  

Failing that derp gun tanks seem to have high net income, so KV-2, O-I.

Kv-3 is rather decent credit maker. Just like IS.

 

20k profit is pretty common, without premium account.

 

But it can have to do with the 36% extra credits from event thing.

I think some tier 7 tanks can do really well, if they can stand up against the tier 8/9s they meet, as even at bottom tier you get bonuses for hitting higher tiers.

Statistics are what they are, but you'll probably make the most credits in the tier 5 or 6 vehicle that you generally perform best in without shooting gold.

Generally, Derps are pretty stronk atm, statistically. Personally, I seem to be doing better with nice high-pen AP guns.

First of all before you should try to earn credits you should go down some tiers and learn about game mechanics because your performance is lacking in the first place. I'm not trying to patronize or bully you it's just a fact that you are struggling.

The best consistent non-premium credit maker is Tiger I. 

  •  Shell cost is cheap, 252cr per round
  •  Great base pen 203 and 236 APCR
  •  Around 10k for full repairs
  •  Possibility to fight against higher tiers gives you more xp = faster crew training. 
  •  4k damage game + 50% boosters gives you 90k credits game

Hello i understand ur words,thank u for reply.I am playing 14 tank lines right now,ranging from t6 to t7.

Besides i tend to play with 100-300 ms lag spikes,when each match starts i start with 500ms-700 ms,when players are shooting at me, the game freeze for a second or two.It is hard to have good stat.My mouse scroll is jumping,and i cant aim correctly most of the time.There is other factors buddy.u forgot about Rng 50%+,i was missing fully aimed shots with accurate Tds,how about t29 can not penetrate the rear hull of T37?Mm and Gold ammo.

 

I thought T8 tanks,can do good amount of silver.Kv2 derp gun,is rather risky cause of it is huge dispersion and low armor penetration u might do 300 damage with heat.I find the Zis gun better for Kv2.

Thank u for all reply guys.
