So I'v been doing my best to make as much credit as I can. And in most of my battles I can do about 10k damage at least along with 2~4k spotting damage and this gets me about 290~330k net credit(After reducing the cost of repair and ammo resupply). The highest I got is about 410k net profit. I remember the first time we had FL some people posted about making 500k net income. How the hell did they pull that off? And second, should I focus on dealing damage or cap/defense points? It's really difficult to get them both. Which one helps me make more credit?

Also if you're willing, share your results (Credit and XP farming) here.

Forgot to say, I use premium tanks 90% of the time.

Premium tanks, premium account and personal reserves, no premium ammo or consumables, and do the same things that get you to general the easiest, that's the only tips I can give you

Play only premium tanks:

Best choice is LT + MT. Why?

 

Premium tanks = cheap repairs. For repair you play only once full 100% price.

I use small repairs, med, and fire ext, because there is repair circles on map.

LT has best dmg to income ratio + you can earn good amount of credits by scouting and assisting. Use scout planes, arty and bombing skills to earn more. My choice is LT432

MT has basic dmg to income ratio so do best you can, try to survive as long as you can. Scout planes at this state is best option to rise income on assists.

If you see you can cap or decap safe - do it.

If enemy rush, always try to hit tracks - assists, assists, assists.

 

Dont use premium ammo.

 

Thats it.

 

my setup: Spagetto + LT432

Using spotting plane will help IMO, I notice not a lot of people seem to use it, people tend to go for arty as their only one, but the right use of the recon plane can net a lot of assistance damage, like for example when you lose a sector and are falling back as defenders, the attackers in that zone are generally all waiting to move up so putting a recon plane out then can basically spot most of the team. 

 

Of course using premium tanks, without using premium ammo. Though I have noticed quite a lot of people spam premium, more than last time.

Well if I fire premium ammo but manage to go to resupply circle before dying, doesn't that prevent paying for the ammo?

No. All re-supplied ammo is deducted from your earnings at the end

Why would you think WG lets you shoot premium ammo for free.

I made a whopping 1,400 credits in my very first game of Frontline. Didn't know that much about the mode or what the map is like, I also haven't got a single premium tier 8 tank and also didn't use any reserves. I did make a little more in the 2nd game but only a fraction of the figures you guys are posting (approx. 1/16th). Went back to Randoms afterwards.

 

Sucks to be me I guess  :(

Worst netto farm for me was 140k on somua, defeat and almost 2/3 of game I was AFK. (Family stuff, angry wife, crying kids). 

 

Here is explanation:

If you play 3 tanks and on all 3 you are killed - it means you will pay for every tank 100% repair cost. If repair cost is 20k, that means 20k x3= minus 60k from you income. If you are killed 2 or more times on each tank, rapairs will cost same 20k.

So if you switch more tanks, more credits will be spent on repairs. So if on average you make for example 200k brutto and you played on 7 different tanks, that means 7x20k=140k repairs + 40k ammo + 20k repairkits = your netto will be 0 (ZERO).

 

How to do it right:

Play only two tanks. Dont use premium ammo, use small repairkits, small medkits, small fireext. Here gos again your brutto 200k-2x20k repairs-40k ammo - 1.5k repairkits = 118.5k netto

1. use +50% credit boost

2. premium account and tanks

3. use the tank with good gun/accuracy/pen/dpm (I highly recommend Caernavon)

4. choose the skill of "recon" (spotting), earning way more credit than arty/air strike.
