Do actions in battle, mainly deal damage and assist others doing damage as well. Try not to get destroyed. To do damage, try not to use gold rounds. Winning is also a factor.

You can up to tier 6/7, above that you will be lucky to break even if you're an average player. Shooting gold is he norm at tier 8-10.

Get a premium tank?Every month (give or take ) there are events that if you complete them give you premium tanks.Usually tier 5-6-7 from Tank rewards!Also there are Marathons in which you can get usually tier 8 tanks for free but those require epic grinds to complete!

No. You can play low tiers and earn credits. M44 can be a good choice to play. 

Just play T5s and T6s that you enjoy playing, and you'll make credits. :)

T6 is a good money earner even if you're not good. T7 can be with certain tanks. Don't go higher than that and you can be fine. Premium tanks get given away at Christmas. I've had three for free. They always make credits. There are lots of ways to build up credits without a premium account.

 

If you like to shoot gold rounds in each battle, though, you'll fast run out of credits unless, a) You're a unicum, or b) You have premium account or plenty of premium tanks. And even then you might have to trade gold for credits. I rarely shoot gold, but a lot of people do and I don't know how they afford it.

Don't use the premium stuff (shells, food) if you don't pay for premium time. 

I play F2P and I rarely play premium tanks for credits. Play mid tier, some high, and you will make credits just fine. 

 

Most important for a positive cash flow, buy everything (consumables, equipment and tanks) on discount. Save some credits to stock up on the first two and you're good to go!

Tier 6 and 7 should be your cash cows.....below this the rewards are too small. This pays for your tier 8+ grinds.....economy working as intended (ish)

Check up on WOT's tankreward.eu page "just google it". It's once a month, and you do daily missions to get points. Get enough and you get a free premium tank. You get 100 points for doing 1 battle a day, then 10 or 20 points for doing more battles. Last month 3000 points gave you a free premium tank.

 

There is also the upcoming PVE event that starts in 3 days. The reward there is a tier 7 premium tank. But ofc, you have to invest time to get it. So keep an eye out for such events if you can do them. As most of my premiums are from such events vs bought. And for a free player, they can help out with income a fair bit.

Did they give out any good premium tanks? I recently returned after some years and managed to snatch Type 64 whitch I actually wanted... I heard they gave away T-34-85M whitch is better than f2p counterpart in every way. Last I played they did not give away anything good for low-medium effort...

Step 1: Git.

Step 2: Gud.

 

That's all there is to it, really. :/

But do keep in mind that tiers 9 and 10 are more or less designed to lose money on.

What I did before going Premium was to play the tiers I made money in. Tier 8 was about the highest I found. At 8 some tanks don't like making cash, ie the IS3 awful, but the IS6 was the goose. With Premium you can make money even up to Tier 10. So much will also depend on how you play, what tank, what consumable equipment used and of course ammo. eg spamming gold ammo in tier 1 can be a cash sink.

not really, not firing a shot can earn more than a miss, and not firing isn't getting gud is it?

The first time the T-34-85 was given out for free, it was arguably the easiest event ever. But the tank reward missions do give out anything from good to bad. They usually have 2-3 options to pick from. And one of them are fairly sold in the current meta. Type 64 being the one from the last one.

 

On tier 8, some of the more stronger tier 8 premiums of late have been marathon reward tanks. Inc the EBR 75. Tho the time needed to get those for free was not little.

Sitting back firing no shells and not taking damage. Any tier can profit on it if you win. Tier 9 even on no shots fired, but damage taken. It's less likely. Tho yes, hitting nothing on most of your shots is a fairly large credit sink on high tiers.

Yes, however you have to play a lot of  games using a good credit making premium tank. I like my Lorr 40T, Lowe & T34. They seem to make credits even if you die without doing anything. The game is technically free to play. Which doesn't mean you can achieve everything other people who pump money into their accounts can, all be it at a much slower rate. But if you want to have good win rate, good stats & have good chances of winning, you're going to want to use wallet warrior ammo. But if you don't care about stats & play just for the enjoyment of it using reg ammo as I do, then yes, you can succeed without pumping money into your account, but it's really hard to do that without premium account. Some well known players who make a lot of yt video's have all discovered & admitted. If they started know all they know about the game & only just got around to making an account to play it, would they. And the answer was no, because the odd's are seriously stacked up against you for succeeding without spending money. 

Play for free yes if you only want to achieve low tier battles. If you want to have tier 10 tanks & some of the iconic tier 8/9 tanks then you do need at least premium account. I only buy premium account to support the game & to help my progress & that's it. I think WG deserve that at least.

I only started to loose credits with my very first tier 7 that was Tiger Poo Poo. Till then I always made profit, if only a small, with tiers 5s and 6s.

 

Tier 8 are best for credits, but honestly - I played sometime without prem acc, and battles with bots team where you could not do anything, didnt rly make any credits. Tier 5 with both, premium and non premium tanks is pretty good for credit grind.
