You can rent one tank and for the third youll just have to use those ruski/uk blueprints you are showered with to grind a tier 8. Maybe not in time for the 25th, but the next stage maybe.

Hey, wondering how to make credits fast and effective as a Free To Play player, I have a King Tiger as a premium tank and that's about it, I don't plan on spending 30 - 50 euros on a tank anytime soon. Any tips? Thanks :) 

 

If you dont have Premium tanks, which seems like an impossibility to me due to MANY reasons i wont go through for practical reasons.

 

1. Best way to make credits is Tier 5 (KV-1 is great) tanks for the average player and Tier 6 tanks (with lower ammo cost) for the good+ players.

Play your games on premium account when you get them for free since there are always events that provide them. Join and clan and when a credit booster is active for 2 hours open your personal 2 hour credit booster and maximize the profits. Also enable the easiest Personal Campain 1 & 2 missions , you can complete them at the same time.

 

2. Tier 8 premium tanks (Lowe or Type 59 are few of the best credit makers) + premium account + personal credit booster + clan credit booster (if available).

 

But by far the best thing you can do is TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DISCOUNTS. For Tanks , Equipment & Consumables. I cant stress this enough.

 

I have bought 99% of all my tanks Tiers 4 to 10 ON DISCOUNT. Thats a 25 million credit profit for me just from Tier 10 tanks.

I ve mounted 3 equipment on all my tanks and ALL of them have been bought on 50% discount.

 

Very simple. Dont be an impatient little kid when you research a new tank. Wait for events and buy them on Discount like i do. IF you dont want to do that then struggle with credits.

 

Im currently sitting at 150 million credits after i purchased lots of tier 6-9 Tanks ive had unlocked and hundreds of food consumables for 10k each.

 

And if you want a Tier 8 premium tank for free then:

1) No-life a 10 day marathon event to unlock it for free or get to stage 9 for a 90% discount (6 euro final price) .

2) Farm 8k bonds and pick one of the few Tier 8 premium tanks available in the bond shop.

3) Farm 5-10 million credits and wait for the next Black Market event where you can buy or bid for a semi-decent Tier 8 premium tank.

4) Farm gold from events (Ranked , Frontline , Steel Hunter etc) and buy a Premium Tier 8 Tank form the ingame tech tree shop BUT when they are on 15% discount. Light tanks cost 6500 gold so thats 5500 gold on 15% off.

 

Finally remember playing in Platoon gives you +15% credits.

Play tanks and collect tokens until you can pick either a free AT-15A - Bret Panther - or- M4 improved. from current tank rewards which all are Premium tanks so then you will have 2 Premium tanks that you can alternate on playing. 


but if you dont want to do the tank rewards and get a Premium tank because you dont believe in them, think they are rigged, pay to win or any other tinfoil hat reason players have against WG.

pick a tier 3 TD. that is how i managed to get credits to afford tier 8 & 9's

TD's at that tier have a good standard pen, so you dont need gold. they are usually in a bush sniping there for make a lot of damage.

and tanks from tier 1-3 always make profit if you dont use anything expensive. the normal repair kit, bandage kit and manual fireEX are fine.

1) Start or continue campaign missions, which give a lot of credits quite easily

2) Save up bonds, you can get good t8 money maker for 8k bonds

3) Tank awards gives t6-t7 premium tanks every month.

This^ 

 

Key to getting credits is not how to get them but rather how to save them imo. 

 

If you don't want to spend money on premium account/tanks, don't use premium stuff (consumables, directives, ammunition). 

 

For a casual player such as myself, credits come piling in with daily missions and events and so on, just learn to not spend them to easy and you're fine without tier 8 premium, without frontline and without premium account.

Yes indeed this too. A Tier 7 premium tank is the 2nd best thing after the Tier 8 premium tank.

Play it when you have free premium days with a personal credit booster on to maximize credits.

My 2 cents worth.

 

T5 / T6 tanks with derp guns are normally good ( in relative terms ) credit makers as HE is cheap and always does damage. Just stay away from the 2 key.

 

On my F2P account I have KV1 122mm, PzIVH, Jumbo, M4A1 and Easy 8 to keep the credits rolling in.

How to make credits

 

Play mid tier arty, and never use any prem ammo or consumables, it made plenty of credits for me.

Also notice that tier 6 arties (M44/Hummel/SU-8) make kinda nice credits too, ofc you have to rack up some damage. Also some tier 5 premium tanks make credits easily, not much, but sure.

Wait... Isn't the magical Fort Knox Dinger way of grinding credits? #confused

A win in frontline with credit reserves + premium + playing premium tanks gives you 400K silver after all expenses.

Without, it's probably half.

I generally sell won/rewarded equipment and premium consumables to top up some credits. After so many battles I just don't really have the motivation to put in hours grinding credits. If the well ever dries up, I'm gone.

Without premium tanks, without premium time and without boosters you would be lucky to make 100k on a General level game. On a Captain level you make more like 50k, and below you can even lose credits. It's just not worth playing in terms of credits/minute compared to lower tier randoms

 

Premium time adds the most to credits income, because it adds 50% to credit income without subtracting the expenses. Boosters add another 50% on top of that.

I rarely play without prem acc so I can't tell...

 

But losng credits in FL? That would pretty darn difficult to achieve, I believe.

Pretty easy, just do as normal wot 44% unicum does, big consumables and always press number "2" before the game starts...
