Credits, can anyone please try to educate me in simple terms how to earn huge amounts of these other than just selling my tanks?

 

 

 

 

Silly question I know, but some not so silly answers would be really appreciated.

Well, to get credits FAST you either spam tier8 premiums with premium time & credit reserves

 

Or you buy credits from the premium shop.

 

If you're not into that:

 

Don't grind many lines at the same time.

 

Get a premium tank that you enjoy and just play it when you feel like it and not just to grind credits.

 

Have some non premium low tier keepers and take them for a spin every now and then.

 

If you play more the tanks that give you credits but aren't leading to a next tank, you'll accumulate credits slowly and probably don't even pay that much attention to it.

 

Also, next weekend starting tomorrow the consumables will be on sale. Stock them up, like 500 of each. It'll cost you now but will save you 50% of the credits in a long run.

I saw the tags for this post, kinda disappointed now.

 

But if you don't have premium tanks. The simplest way is to play a tier 5/6 you are good at. As damage or assist = credits. The more you get, the better it is. And the cheaper it is to run, the better it is. Lights usually works as they have low repair cost and usually cheap ammo. Tho personally on my NA account I ran the T71, ELC and Cromwell for easy income before I got a free premium there.

Not a silly question at all.  It has been asked a lot and there are a lot of answers out there but:

 

Premium time means 50% more credits and XP.

Premium tanks make a lot more credits (relatively)

Farming in the lower tiers to fun play at higher tiers is the common 'free to play' method.

As you go up the tiers you gain a lot of junk from old tanks - go into your depot and find old guns/tracks/engines/ammo etc that you no longer need and sell them.

 

This is a free to play game but the business model WG has employed is to make the in game economy harder to manage the higher up you go so they sell premium time and/or tanks.  You can 'beat' this by farming credits at T5 and T6 (M4 and PZ4 with full HE earn quite well).

 

You can earn premium tanks from time to time during missions/marathons (of which the last one ended just a week ago).

Completing the personal missions is quite a good way to gain credits.

Ok guys thanks for the hints and tips, all will be noted. 

 

I have no idea why the tags cause disappointment as it is just my warped sense of humour, something I find you need in the game:trollface:

Check the depo, sell all the useless(not top configuration, in most cases true for all tanks except a few) modules you don't need anymore. Like  tracks, guns, and so on. When i first did it i  made around 5 mill credits from that.

Premium account in a tier 8 premium tank with credit boosters. Play aggressive and if you die early on, have a second tank to swap to. :izmena:

Do more damage in battles, you don't do enough that will give you more credits

I don't mean to be rude, but your biggest problem is your own performance.

 

Your most played tank is the Skorp G but you have a 39% win rate.  This is because your average damage is 270.  That's one damaging shot every 2 games !!

Your best tanks look to be your T92 and WZ-120-1G FT.  Try playing those more.

 

I see 71 premium tanks on your account history.  With that amount of money, why don't you just buy credits ?

 

Jackpot currently has 25% off.  https://eu.wargaming.net/shop/wot/main/586/

 

If you want to improve as a player I'd suggest you try to get into a clan with some players who will teach you (Wot-Uni springs to mind).

You need to get better at the game. Doing well in battles is best way to get credits, whether it is with prem account or not or prem tank or not.

Silly question I know, but some not so silly answers would be really appreciated.

 

1. Premium account means normal matches below tier VI should always turn a profit. Premium account is more cost effective over time than any premium tank for earning silver.

2. Go to your Depot. Sell guns, turrets, tracks, radios for tanks you have gone past.

3. Go to your Depot and sell ammunition for guns you no longer have.

4. Buy credits (silver) directly in the premium shop.

5. Reseach (forums, youtube reviews etc.) and then buy a premium tank, some BUT NOT all make good silver credits.

6. Save silver credits. ONLY spend them when (a) the tank that you want is on discount, (b) equipment is on discount (always have equipment bought on discount ready for when you can buy a tank on discount), (c.) consumerables are on discount.

7. Use Personal Credit booster when playing a session with a premium tank.

8. Do the Personal Missions for the STUG, HTC, and T55A as they pay out good silver rewards.

9. Hit and penetrate more, live longer, die less, and generally play better. Players with a high win rate are never short of silver.  Git Gud. If you cannot then stick to tier V and below for awhile.

Remove all premium shells and consumables from your tank. 

 

Initial cost - 9/10

Credit making potential - 5/10

Combat effectiveness/fun - 1/10

 

Use light tanks for spotting assist

 

Initial cost - 10/10

Credit making potential - 7/10

Combat effectiveness/fun - 6.5/10 (many maps are not suitable, many teammates are not suitable)

 

Use derp gun tanks with HE/AP only

 

Initial cost - 9/10

Credit making potential - 7.5/10

Combat effectiveness/fun - 6/10 (mixed bag, unreliable)

 

Use TD with standard AP/HE to snipe like boss

 

Initial cost - 9/10

Credit making potential - 5/10 (many maps do not suit these tanks)

Combat effectiveness/fun - 5/10 (mixed bag)

 

Use premium tank, no gold shells

 

Initial cost - 0/10 (unless a won marathon tank)

Credit making potential - 7.5/10 (tier8 MM, depends on class depends on map)

Combat effectiveness/fun - 4/10 (again, no gold vs +2 tier most battles, unless big standard pen)

 

Credit Buffs with no gold ammo

 

Initial cost - 10/10 (when won for free)

Credit making potential - 10/10 (what it says is what you get, 50% more is 50% more)

Combat effectiveness/fun - ?/10 (depends)

Tags did not disappoint, the lack of promised content did. Click bait.

Besides the obvious answers, find a few tanks at tier V/VI that you enjoy playing and they’ll make credits with no effort required.
