A while back I asked what tank should I buy for making credits and exp , and the answer was that in the game actual version it was not worth it .

Is now , with 1.0.1 version worth it ?

If yes , what tank would you buy for credits and exp , between 20/35€ .

Thanks guys , have a good Sunday !

T34-85M at tier 6 or Panther/M10 at tier 7 with preferential match making.

Fit your price range too I think.

It depends on what you want to play.

If you wish to play T9 and T10 tanks then you pretty much need a (T8) premium tank or premium account (else you'll spend a lot of time grinding credits in your T5-6 tank). 

If you'll be playing T8 and below then you don't really need premium anything. 

 

As for the credit printers in your price range I would suggest getting M4A1 Rev or FV4202. Of course take my recommendation with a grain of salt. My suggested tanks are the most efficient at earning credits without spamming too much premium ammo, fun factor is not taken into consideration. If you dislike current T8 MM then I suggest you get a lower tier premium like T34-85M or simply buy a premium account.

Getting in tier 10 games with no armor is no fun.

I would like to play tier 8 max , and having fun while making credits .

What would you suggest ?

the T34-85M is decent, and although a lot of people might not recommend it, the Japanese HT VI is great fun at times.

Whats the difference in the play style between the two ?

And the strenghts and weakness of both ?

Just wait for tanks like; skorpion, t44-100, lorraine, patriot and the cent they are bringing soon if you want some turret armor.

From what they have in the shop only panther/m10 and maybe t92 if you are decent in lights are worth getting.

edit. Progetto is also worth getting when they sell it without bundles

Didn't like the Tiger I when I played it , so I think I might not like the japanese version .

the T34-85M is a really powerful medium with decent armour if you're top tier. If you're not top it's still a decent flanker and can rack up a serious amount of damage if you position yourself well

 

The HT VI is a copy of a Tiger, tier 6. If you're top tier it's got some rocking armour if you angle it and is quite stronk, if you're mid tier it's a good supporter tank (you follow the other heavies and make sure nobody flanks them, you'll be fighting off higher tier meds and lights) and if you're bottom tier you're just cannon fodder vs tier 8s. Still a fun enough tank but it depends heavily on the MM. The T34-85M is probably a better money maker though

I like some of those tanks , but they are to expensive.

How is Panther/M10 ?

Skorpion G , T26E5  good money makers.

T34-85M has pretty decent armour if you are facing t6 and ,maybe, t7 opponents. Fast firing gun, decent accuracy, good mobility. Dont expect much when u go vs t8s, but that is true for all tier 6s.

Panther/M10 has also an excellent rate of fire, its armour is weak, mobility not so good. But this vehicle works more like a support tank (almost TD like).

T-34-85M as top tier in 3-5-7MM is like a rabid bull in a china shop, especially if there's no tier 6 heavies in the match. It is unstoppable, unless arty is involved...

It is not worth to buy a tier VI or VII tank , you will make way less money than a tier VIII

 

And a T26E5 / Skorpion will be around 40$.

 

Also WZ 120-1 FT is a easy tank to play , and it is 35$

I just discovered that I have a 30% discount coupon so I'm going to take advantage and buy a pricier tank , 35€ max tank , so I can pay only 25€ (I Will pay with a 25€ pay safe card).

Soo I reduce the choices to these tanks :
T-54 Proto ; M46 Patton KR ; Panzer 58 Mutz ; VK 45.03 ; AMX CDC ; STA 2 ; FV4502 ; Panzer 8.8 ; M4A1 Rev ; 59-Patton.

Sorry that I only saw this nos guys , but from these whats your suggestion ?

This is a personal opinion, so may not be right for everyone...

 

From your latest selection I'd probably go with T-54 prot, decent armour as top tier and the gun is good enough for brawling.

The M4 and STA are more range dependent but theyboth have features which make them a bit awkward at times. Mutz and KR are both (for me) middle of the road standard medium tanks. I don't have the others.

 

 

However, I'd pick the Panther/M10 first even if it's not on your list (again, personal choice), preferably MM and tier 7 is a good combination.

VK45.03 is a good money maker and not a bad tank.   Though if you didn't like the Tiger H then maybe not.

Soo of that , the Panther / M10 ? 

In terms of credit making and fun that would also be your choice ?
