I didnt play the game for very long time, mainly because of this reason.

 

The problem here is that I'm very short on credits, and I'm stuck with only 3 tanks. It's also the reason why I didnt play the game for very long time. I revisited the game because of some major updates that WG made.

 

Grinding credits take freaking forever, earning only 9k to 19 credits is nothing, and I'm not that of a skilled WoT player in the first place to earn lots of credits.

 

Should it good to spend some real money on a few premium tank bundles that contain alot (ALOT) of credits in it so I can rebuy some of the tanks I sold? Because I personaly hate grinding and I play games to have fun and not grindfest.

The Campaign missions for the reward tanks will give you a lot of credits. The game however is all about repetitive grinding. If you don't like this then it really isn't worth investing your time in.

I don't know which Premium tank bundles contain certain credits, you still need to earn them by winning battles. And if you can't afford the ammo or the repair kits it becomes a 'Catch 22' situation, you can't do well in battles because you daren't do anything, etc. 

 

So my suggestion would be to go right back to tier one and work up again, or buy a 'Fort Knox' bundle in the Premium Shop, or cut your losses and re-roll by creating a new account.

1st things first, the major solution to your problem is you need to play the games.. play some, and that situation will disappear

that will take time, and time is what lets you make the right decisions

 

you could shorten the time by buying premium time and using credit boosters, but id shy away from buying premium tanks, specially T8 ones as you need to play well in those to make credits.. if you don't, you'll find you make no more than you would in a standard T5 all while the T5 would also be far far easier to play and far less annoying.. lets face it, your after fun, so buying a T8 prem would be going against your wants

 

work up with the tanks you have left, buy a T5, and then rebuild that way.. if you rush it, you'll just end up buying something stupid and be right back where you are again....

So many slots....so few tanks?.........I think not.

And never ever buy credits for money/gold. The exchange rate is more than shiiite. Seriously, take your time. Do not rush. Credits will come.

Boohoo, boohoo, credits take effort!

 

So what.

 

Put your damn nose to the grindstone and earn 'em. You seem to be doing well enough in the T-34-85.

Do whatever you want, why ask others what you should do? By doing that you invite getting advice you may not want to heed, and thus be back to square one!

What tanks do you have atm? If you still have the 34-85, use it as you do pretty nicely in it, and rebuy some t5 as soon as you have double it's price plus crew retraining credits. Look into your stocks, if there is some ammo or modules for tanks you won't revisit and sell them. Don't use prem consumables, and circulate the binocs and camonet (2 of each should be enough), as they are better than nothing at low tiers. Use normal consumables as soon as you have silver for them in all tanks, because it improves your staying power and thus damage potential.

Grinding can frustrate, but as many above I'd advise not to buy silver. You still would have to grind the exp...

If you're not playing with premium account, don't try to grind up *multiple* tank lines at the same time.

 

Pick one you want to advance, and keep the rest at tier 5/6 that should net you positive credits when you play the said tanks. Also, they're good for completing ingame missions (either weekly/weekend missions, or say, campaign missions that should net you millions of credits). As a bonus, you'll train up your crew to be ready when you do pick up grinding the line up.

 

Missions (and crew skills) are a good motivation to play the said tanks, if you're having trouble on finding the motivation to play already elited tanks. Premium account or a premium tank is most likely better use of money than buying credits, provided that you don't play very infrequently (I mean, it's rather hard to recoup the cost in credits if you end up playing your prem tank for only for say, 10 matches, or one day out of your 30 day premium account subscription).

 

Also, if you haven't checked it out yet, you probably have a million or two hidden in the depot. You can sell obsolete modules, equipment and consumables at 50% of their purchase price (you probably have a pile of large repair kits and stuff like that hidden in there gained from events and missions, and those sell for 10k a pop). Sell stuff only when it's not discounted. Now that I mentioned it, don't undervalue consumables as mission rewards. A weekend event that nets you "10 Large repair kits, 10 Large first aid kits, 10 Automatic fire-extinguishers" looks very underwhelming, until you read it as "300000 credits".

 

Credit management is a sort of unofficial minigame in WoT. Even if you're completely free to play, you shouldn't run in to credit troubles if you pay attention to both your spending and income sources. This however requires you to pace your purchases and chase missions with T5-7 tanks instead of powergrinding to three tier X:s simultaneously.

You just have to use your brain every now and then, e.g. to understand the very simple economy of this game.
Grinding costs money. Playing above your skilllevel costs money. You gain money by playing proper moneymaking tanks.

How can that be that hard to understand?

well... the more you play, the better you will get, the more credits you will earn.

If that's to hard for you, you can invest money.

 

prem account + a prem tank and all your worries should be gone in a few games.

 

but if you really can't be bothered.. maybe WoT isn't for you?

If you have not yet done so start doing the personal missions

You can do those with tier 4 tanks and above the early ones are really easy

Complete the primary part of the mission and you get 50,000 credits do the secondary as well you get 25,000 more 

The first 4 missions for Light Medium Heavy TD and SPG give you that.

Assuming you have the tanks to do them thats 1,5000,000 potential credits, on top of whatever you get from the games themselves.

Get to tier 5 and 6 find some tanks there you like playing and just play.

At some point you've ground as far as the IS-3 and have owned 4 (free) premium tanks and yet you now only own 3 tanks and have no credits ?

 

How ?

 

Did you repeatedly rage sell/buy tanks whenever something didn't go your way ?

 

This is a grinding game.  Either learn to love playing mid tiers for fun (with credits as a bonus) or give up and find a different game.

Yet, there is a free slot for each nation of which he could sell to free up slots for more money making tanks. Perhaps, he has a Gold addiction.....in which case he should join the Dingers.:P
