To begin with, I'm terribly sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum section. Now, I want you to suggest me a fast premium medium tank so I can make lots of credits (mediums do make more credits than heavies or TD's) maybe with preferential matchmaking. Thanks to all of you!!

I've recent;y bought T-44-100 and I have never enjoyed tier 8 medium tank more than this. Highly commended, though I'm not sure if it's still in store.

l would prefer t54mod1 or t44-100 for medium tank. t54 a bit slower than t44-100 but much better hull armor. Also kinda fast. But for me the best credit maker tank is t26e5 heavy tank.l remember one game l earn 270k credits

T-44-100 and the Lorraine 40t are usually considered the top picks of T8 premium MTs; and happen to fit your criteria. Oh, and they're of course not on regular sale. They come up every so often, though.

 

Mediums are not necessarily the best pick for credits, if you ask me the important part is finding something you think is fun to play. Fast mediums kind of fit the bill anyway. You can usually get something done in them. TDs are worth a look too. Less credits per shot, maybe, but you're likely to get more done per match. The WZ-120-1G FT is practically a turretless medium tank, and can fit almost any role. Gun's a bit derpy, but that's the price you have to pay for armor, mobility and firepower.

 

There might be some tanks you'd like on lower tiers as well. Doing well in a T6/7 often result in more credits than doing poorly in T8s. Type 64 is a very nice pick if you can handle light tanks.

Panther/M10 is probably worth a look too. It's a Panther, so not particularly fast, but fast enough to get things done, and doesn't see T9s. It adapts fairly well to most situations, and is overall nice to play. That may or may not be more important than sheer 'credit printing' to you, of course.

 

Last, but not least, ideally you'd want to have a premium tank that fits into a line you're grinding or planning to grind. With that in mind, the KV-122 can be an OK choice if you like how the IS plays. Faster, but slower-shooting. Not everyone likes it. T-34-85M is one of the stronger T6s, being a tad slower but overall better than the non-M version. Both tanks fit into lines you likely have crews for.

This. If you ever see it on sale again, grab it asap. It's basically a tier 8 obj 140. Fast, good turret armor, and good accuracy. It can also sidescrape when angled well.

There is not such one. T54 and other Soviet junks are too bad. Try some German slow tanks that goes to minus.

Its always safe bet on USSR machine.


 Moving from there I agree T-44-100 is great .


Jet,  I would go by logic of Tier VIII problem, and that means Tier VIII is broken as Tier since its food for Tier IX and X and any tier VIII tank is thus not optimal in this days.( its forced by match making to fight tier IX and X tanks ,in practice- always)


So by this logic I propose   T-34 85 M, from tier VI, as best premium medium tank in the game and best choice for not very experienced player. Tank was buffed last year, its  stronger even than T-34 Rudy, and is good crew trainer(5 man crew).It can fight any tier VII medium tank on equal terms. I consider it my best medium tank.

 

I play it with Optics, Rammer and Vents, by this tank is truly capable in any scenario, spotting , sniping ,flanking, and even armor often works due to perfect sloping.This means high Xp and solid credit income (despite not tier VIII).Mobility is decent.

I find it weird to say it but i find t-44-100 to be a fair and balanced premium. Having received multiple buffs over time but each time the buffs were made right. Can still be penned by a tier 6, can freak bounce a tier 9.


Biggest downside it's a T-44. I mean grinding 2 tier 9 tanks then jumping into this for credit making is... The same. More credits but same experience.

For this reason alone i find myself playing the french ravioli instead because it provides variety. Ravioli is fun. Not the best but more enjoyable for random credit grabs

T-34-85M vs. Rudy.

Rudy has the edge of view range, aim time, turret traverse, and some terrain resistances but the T-34-85M is the same, or better in every other department. I don't think tanks.gg has the correct stats for the T-34-85m as I could swear it's reload time is better as well....by perhaps half a second? 

For other picks, Lorraine or T-54 Mod 1. I actually enjoy the Ravioli and Guard....whilst fun, however, they are not as competitive and might be considered hipster.

M4 Revalorise. If you just want to make credits the gun on this one is great. Ammo is cheap and does high damage so good profits.

T-44 100 was on "sale" last week but the inflated price put me off...

 

Out of Ravi, L40t and FV4202 that I own at T8 I'd say the auto loader is best. Just don't snipe in it.

​My in battle excperience is T-34 M is better than Rudy. Maybe not visible in data,but that is my experience.

 

Plus it trains one more crew bember.

I would advice you to stay away from Tier 8 premiums all together.  You are a new player and the tier 8 MM is the most horrible MM you can suffer. You will always be be bottom tier which severely limits your credit income. Its also extremely frustrating and boring to constantly have to play a support role.

 

My suggestions would be the following:

Type 64 - Best LT tier for tier in the game. 

Panther M10 - T7 MT. One of the best premiums in the game and it got PMM to boot.

T34-85M. Extremely strong T6 MT. Very good "all round" tank that can deliver in any map and MM.

Everything bellow 210 pen won't cut it in current meta.

Patton KR ... I gained % at +99% with less than 2k dmg. That's sad.

 

T-44-100,  Mod 1, Pilot .... all same stuff.

STA-2, CDC not much better either. First one is a tad too slow, second is made out of paper. 

 

British and Swedish Cents are dragged down by the huge bloom and low alpha. Beside, ammo costs a fortune so you won't make credits.

 

Honestly, for a fast one I think Mutz is one of the best compromises. Decent camo, speed and bloom.

 

And the best might be the Rev. Although slow, low on camo, big dispersion, 200 pen only , it has high speed, high alpha APCR as standard ammo, with little drop off in pen (you can check in-game now). Blooms are small also.It racks up easily on damage and is cheap to run.

 

Don't buy tier 5/6 premiums if you want credits.

if tier 6 is an option i would add Bromwell too. its pretty good,fast and nimble,pretty fun tank to drive.

tier 8 t26e5 is good for cred,cheap ammo,good hull down,decent pen. 

t44-100 to me personally is average,but i can see some players make it work really well.

Depends on your play style. Rav is good credit earner. T44-100 can make credits but it's less of a big hitter so you need to play it differently and the same applies to the auto loading 40t so pick the one that suits your playstyle.

At tier 6; it has to be the T-34-85M. Just a good all rounder and according to VBaddict, the best earning tier 6 med in the game by some margin.
