A bit of crude planning here...


  • Say i want to grind the T-54 from semi stock to unlock both tanks after it. The 140 and the T-62a.
  • I will eventually need to fire some HEAT and maybe use food.
  • After 10~20 battles i will have a good estimate of how much XP i earned on average against how much credits lost per battle.
  • So if i needed 1~1.5 million credits for the whole grind. I will use 3 premiums for a week in FL to grind that which should be easy enough.
  • You can also grind that amount in randoms in 2-3 hours with reserves and premium tanks.


After that you can enjoy playing tier 9 or 10 as much as you want. Neither premium tanks nor reserves are exclusive or rare anymore. There are marathons and events that give these away often.

wish i could find a web site that gave me credits earned by tank as i struggle to 


luckily i earned / bought a few premium tanks and ofc during Front line they are capable of earning me 2m with a 2hr credit booster (which i save up for FL) and im very average player


Heavy Tanks cost more to play so maybe get an HE heavy - Type 5 anyone?

Also I have found the standard b and progetto good high tier earners 

I dont have the ebr 105 but i expect the HE cheap and all that spotting must mean is good earner too                     gl

Impossible to make money anyway, credit earning id just not there due to gold spam and that is even in the low tiers,regular trips to the premium shop for the 'essential resources,' package make this game far far too expensive to play.


Aim better, its cheaper.

People would still want to play lower tiers to research the better ones. This makes no sence to me as it is now, since the game encurages you to discover as many tanks as possible, but without premium it's very hard to have the money to play high tier tanks to descover tier 9 and 10s


Yeah, it's called a "business model" and the reason that makes them earn money and still allow FTP players in the servers.

WG recommendation since the game started: play 1 game at the upper tiers (8-10), a few to lower tiers to recover and make credits. Premium tanks also help. That is how the WoT economy worked since the game was released. There are some high tier tanks that can make money at upper tiers (tier 8 prem tanks included, along with certain tier 9 already mentioned). HT and TD are credit sink at high tiers as they are expensive to operate.

Good tanks are expensive, like the luxury cars

A tier 8 premium tank or a tier 5 tank, or M44, will help you to have fun at mid tier and train crews, earn credits and free exp for high tiers

I play mostly tier 10 (some tier 8 and 9). I spam more gold than I would like to admit. I'm not a good player, average, with roughly 50% wins. But I still usually break even. I do have a premium account though.


Rewarding players for being selfish (i.e. camping and trying to get as much damage as possible while the rest of the team are killed) is a bad idea.

Pz1c costs what? Like 250K to max out with gold.

But I too have the feeling that you earn less per battle when non premium. I dunno if they changed some soft stats but it feels that way.

Well, you earn 33% less...:trollface:







I'll show my way out
