It is frustrating to play game after game, especially in tier 10 battles and lose substantial credits!  I don't seem to win credits without any premium time anymore.  Unless, I use my premium tanks or my su100y.   But it's loss after loss in credits all the time.  I don't even like playing my tier 10 tanks anymore.  

Does anyone have any advice in how to make credits? Or what's the best tanks that make you credits?  Any advice will help. Thanks.

Yeah there is a reason why Tier 8 Prems exist and not Tier 10 Prems

Tier 10 is designed to cost credits for most players to keep the population of players flowing to all the other tiers, and not just create a huge glut at the top tiers of the game where people just play continuously.

 

Also, premium tanks/time is for players that want to spend less time grinding credits and more time playing whatever they want.

 

:Shrug:  It's the way the game is.

Somewhere along the line of updates, WG changed the business model to a pay to play format.

 

It means you will have a difficult time earning without a premium tank or premium account.

Prior to that change you could effectively play for free and grind credits.

 

I still play for free, but I have two purchased premium tanks:  IS3D (grinded but ran out of time due to work so I paid money for the balance of the grind) & FCM (Father's Day Gift - yay family).


 

I primarily play my premium tanks with a sprinkle of tank grinds.

After watching this video I went back and removed all of my consumables and camo. I also stopped shooting premium. And like in the past I making credits again. The introduction of these additional items you can put on your tank is what is eating away at your credit.https://m.youtube.co...h?v=cPBQA_9_BDw

I disagree with this.  WOT Blitz is not pay to play.

 

Pay to advance faster, or do better?  Sure.

 

You do not need to pay a cent to play the game.

 

Also, tier 10 has always been gear toward a negative credit revenue...  that has not changed.

You are absolutely right that you don't need to pay a cent to play this game, however if you want to advance at a reasonable rate without stripping out all of the accessories...you gonna need to pay.

 

The difference is night and day.  If I play any tank I want without a premium account for a day, I can expect to lose credits.  Meanwhile, when I get those 2 day premium accounts for updates, I can easily earn over $1 million credits per day without any regards to which tanks I play.


 

It used to not be that way.

WG definitely changed something about the credit earning for free players. 

It used to be a reasonable path to play for free.  Now I imagine it's a struggle to play for free (It actually was always a struggle, but now it's demoralizing).

This is a game that offers in app purchases. You don't have to but it's a way of enhancing if you will quality of play. Otherwise you have to put up thousands in damage and kill more than 4 tanks be top of your team and maybe not use all the pay for in game things of which everything costs money. That's is to earn credits. In any tier or tank. Earning credits in tier x meh. Tier x is not about earning credits lol you have free versions and upgrade versions. Blitz is only about upgrades and enhancements for in app purchase. The more you play the more credits you lose. At some point you decide to buy more etc or you just play the free version of yourself lol

I used to strip out all of my consumables and camo, but the issue you run into is that you are at a slight disadvantage.

Tier 10 premiums' effect would be to not lose credits. :P

Look at the credit earnings thread

http://forum.wotblit...arnings-for-31/

and you'll see that tier 10 tanks have the lowest returns.

I thought about this but it hasn't been a problem yet. It's making me play a little more cautiously which isn't a bad thing.

The only time you'll notice it is if you are some how stuck in a brawl with the same exact tank and guess what...they will get that last shot off to kill you since they have a slight ROF advantage.  it's happened to me a few times due to my battle count.  lol.

Ya that's the biggest issue with players that have no premium time (which includes me). I would recommend premium time if you have the money to spend, but if not it's best to play your high tier premium tanks and continue to grind down other lines, tier 5-7 tanks are the best tanks to grind and play that are not premium on making good credits. I had the same issue, but now i make my credits with missions and not using too many provisions, and I usually break even now, or lose 5-10k credits. But I play alot of premium tanks to make up for it.

Uniscum tim 

lol jk but all ur tier 10 tanks are not really you know, good for making money

e100 requires heat to do great in

is7 is is7 aka prammo spam

e5 got decent pen but yeah

 

i suggest u try some other tier 10 with high pen as normal ammo n low repair fee 

don't expect to make money tier 10 anyway. Not losing much credits aka 20K- is already a win
