-8000 to -11000 damage? What game are you playing?....
I've reached a point in my life where I've decided I'm not old. I'm actually 20, but with shipping and handling!

Use all HE to save max credits while doing max damage.

Hold up. You use mostly HE? :facepalm:

 

Oh dear, you're one of them. Run everyone! :ohmy:

Can you specify exactly what you are talking about?

The E-25, skill ceiling so high it's in the next tier (basically, it's OP when used to its max. potential)

Just another demo account, nothing to see here

Hey, that’s sage advice . . . more cow bell, more HE.

Start by reading through the post linked in my signature. It contains the formula for how credits are calculated, and which tanks will earn the most.

 

As for your specific situation... Stop using HE. Until you get better; it's best that you just don't load any at all. For now; go back to your garage, and fill up your ammo load with all AP.

 

Most of the credits you earn will be from doing damage. And HE does practically no damage compared to AP. I almost literally never say this; but you should go play like tier III or something until you understand that shooting AP is much better than shooting HE.

 

Basically; if you want to be making credits, do damage, and don't die.

I guess he meant 8000 to 11000 credit loss

Mate, you shouldnt use HE like that. HE only does full damage when it penetrates the armor, and HE shells penetration is bloody awful. You'll have to shoot the rear armor, and it doesnt always work.

 

By now, use AP shells only, they're cheap and they'll penetrate armor just fine. Take cover while reloading and avoid exposing yourself to enemy fire as much as you can (except while shooting back).

Play tiers 2 and 3 to get the hang of it, then move up :D

well said Positive.

 

in addition, I would recommend watching youtubers such as quickybaby, sk8xtrm, and Buschka. They will all help you through the plethora of videos they have, the proper technique, ammo load outs, strategies, and where to be at what time in your tanks, and just how to play blitz in general. 

 

here are some great videos to get you started:

 

Understanding armor penetration

 

How to earn credits

 

How to make credits without a premium tank (a premium tank is any tank that you can buy with gold.)

Oh my. AP may cost a bit more, but you will make more credits because you'll actually do damage. If you have the certficates, then use them for a premium account for an hour or so to make more credits and xp.
