So I have found myself in the situation where I have unlocked a tier X, a tier IX and two tier VIII with xp. Im f2p and only have a million and half credits.

I own two of the free premium tanks from the last couple of events and have grown quite bored with them. 

What tiers should I play where I can earn good credits and the repair and reload costs are low enough to guarantee a profit, even if the player base assures a 40% win rate?

If you have a tier 8 heavy premium or can get the lowe, then that's where you wanna be. Pop a premium time certificate and deal at least as much damage as your health and you'll generally make profit (break even at the worst case) unless you do something very wrong.

 

The Angry Connor in tier 4 was also a credit printer from what i hear but that's only sold once or twice a year for cash. Thr P.z. V/IV also gets good reviews. There are other solid performers but you generally want to stay away from the light tanks at upper tiers since those are designed to break even at best and be credit sinks at worst

I may have a few too many tanks. I think I was over 150 in garage by last count.

8

 

If you're playing tech trees to grind credits, probably 6 or 7.

There is no substitute for a premium tank you enjoy that makes credits. Sure, you can play tech tree tanks, but the return on investment is poor unless you do not value your time. I know this isn't a direct answer, but forcing yourself to "earn" 15-20K/game when you could make bank is worse than dropping 20 or 30 bucks on the game.

 

Premium time, run Lowe or Clown Car for ten battles, make bank. Life is too short to grind credits inefficiently.

Any tier you can consistently carry in with a premium tank.

If you're playing regular tanks, tier VI and VII will make some silver, everything up will be hard on your credits. 

Tier X: Leo.1, E50 ME100, Jageroo, MAUS, E4E5, M48, T57, Obj.140, T-62, IS-7, IS-4, Obj.268, STB-1, 4202, BC.25T, WZ-113.

The Tier 5 Pz. III/IV is the best non-premium money maker. Bushka had a video on it a couple years back. It got converted to a Collectors Tank with the lower tier changes but its gun never got nerfed. Appears you don’t have it though.

Tier 10. Just don't suck and you will maintain a solid profit.

BTW I realize you don’t want a premium tank but I’d highly recommend the Krupp, the premium Tier 5 in the store right now. Really, really decent tank and great credit earner. Most games I’m doing about 1800 dmg (really easy) and earning around 50k credits. Games are much faster at Tier 5 as well, so you can earn credits consistently faster.

Tier 8, I run my ClownCar and a premium cert and clean house. Also the Krupp is a good coin maker at tier 5.

For tech tree; tiers 5-6 and do not drive a RUSSIAN tank ( they generally have the worst credit coefficients ). 

 In general British tanks have the best coefficients ( Churchills at the top of the list ) and Germans are also very good.  

So find one you can perform well in and do not get easily bored with.
