I've been saving gold for a few months and I'm looking for a tier III-V premium tank to make credits. The regular Valentine is a pretty good tank in my opinion, but the premium version is inferior. What is your opinion on the tank? Is it fun to play?

I got it out of a crate and played one battle in it. Its not great and people dont expect much from you but you can use that against them with the insane rof. Also needs to use a lot of gold

Don't buy the Valentine II.  Unless you have gold to waste, then collect them all.

I see. If you don't mind me asking, what tier V premium would you recommend? I prefer tanks that have a balance between RoF and "punch".

SU-85I, T14, or T-25 from the tech tree.  Ram II or Angry Connor if you find them for sale.

It's the gun, you'll need to fire off a bunch of apcr to make it work at times ...  That makes it harder to earn credits.  May I suggest the T-25 in the tech tree when it goes on sale next?  Typically about half price too!

 PZ IV / V or T-25 are competent machines that can bring in some credits and wins, if you handle your medium tanks. 

 

Ignore valentine 2, pz b2, ... and plenty of other tier 3-5 tanks.

TDs are more team dependent and not as versatile.

Yea, T-25 is most likely the most user friendly.  Though, the T14 had a buff recently.  The SU-85I will be dependent on how you do with TDs as stated above.

If you want to  hull down/angle hull and make great credits T-14.

 

If you want to do the Td damage farming tank with OP gun and no armor SU-85i...good credits 

 

both require positioning and aiming

Ignored during battle and killed last, as more of an afterthought. 

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

Plus if you play the game long enough, you’ll probably get one for free as a prize or from a box.

Tier IV and V premiums won't make you many credits (except Chi Nu Kai and Angry Connor)

 

The tier is too low so the joining a battle bonus, win bonus, and amount of damage you do all give less than satisfactory credit payouts, and the coefficient's are fairly low too

 

If you want a true credit grinder, you'll want a tier 8 prem; SU-122-44; Type 62; T-34-85 Victory; Dicker Max; or Angry Connor/Chi Nu Kai

 

As for the Valentine II itself, credit making aside, I like it. It's one of only 2 tanks left in the game that get preferential matchmaking, so you never have to fight tier 5's, making it an excellent bully.

Yup.  The PzKw V/IV or the T14 are both worth it.  

 

Both prefer a couple of second row equipment slots filled if you really want the best out of them. Fortunately Tier V Spare Parts are a pretty low threshold. 


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

One of my favourite tanks. Decent money maker (i made 40k once in an ace tanker and i think 6 kills match without any boosters nor premium time), but you have to have at least 20 premium APCR rounds if you want to be able to actually penetrate anything, but they're quite cheap (it's a tier 2 small calibre gun).

The APCR is only 800 credits per round on the Valentine II.  And you’ll only need it against other Valentines, Matildas and AMX 40s. 

 

I just went and played mine for a quick refresher and got a 1st Class, High Caliber and Steel Wall. I fired 27 shots scoring 2 kills without using a single round of APCR. I ended up making 27,900 net profit.
