Any tips to earn credits faster? I have researched the M3 Lee and T-28. But it seems earning credits is slow. 1 - 6k each battle. Which thing earns you more credits? Destroying, Detecting, Capturing enemy base or?

Please share your tips :(

Thanks.

What really earns credits is tier 5 and 6 vehicles. Thats the sweetspot where even a loss will net you reasonable income.

You can easilly get 10-20k per match with things like KV's, Stug's, VK 3601's, ect.

Under tier 5 there's a noticable lack of profit.

Destroying and damaging tanks will earn credits. The higher the Tier of your victims, the more experience you get.

Ending a match by capturing a base - instead of killing all tanks - also earns you experience. Defending your base (by attacking/destroying enemy tanks within the flag circle) also nets you credits/experience.

Another tip is to always have two types of tanks - an active, main tank and a "farm" tank. The main tank is your highest tier and the one you want to put the most work into. The "farm" tank is one in Tier 2 or Tier 5 that is well-equipped. You'll find your "farm" tanks - despite their low tier - often make much more credits than your "main" tank.

For example, let's say I get 6000 for a win on my Tier 5 SU-85, but I also have 3000 repairs and 500 ammo cost. So my total gain is only 2500. Compare that to my Tier 2 M2 Light Tank, where let's say I get 4500 experience but even if I'm destroyed it only costs around 400 - so almost double the experience with the lower Tier tank.

If experience/credits are all you need, working on your "farm" tank is a great way to earn it.

Also if you have the money, then buy some gold and get a Churchill or T14 - excellent moneymakers. I personally recommend Churchill from my experience with it - good armor, average gun (that atleast reloads fast) and average mobility.

T14 yes, Churchill .... really? Worst Prem tank I tried. Ram2, Matilda, Hotchkiss I liked too.

hotchkiss Pz 38 (f) is a very inexpensive tank and a real gem of a tier 2, decent cash generation, in addition to surviavbility.  For the mediums the RAM II with a rammer is kick ass as well

I don't really know what you're even talking about. Churchill is very effective and has a fast-firing gun, the only downside is the low damage and penetration, but T-14 has bad armor.

Damaging enemies, followed by win vs loss. Destroying is minor as is detecting. Capturing the base has a small bonus vs just killing everyone IIRC.

Learn when to fall back, and read strategy. Seriously, this is the primary thing. You cannot do anything else if you are not alive!

I probably don't need to tell you this, just putting it out there.

Fall back doesn't always mean "run back to your base" either. There are times when just driving backwards a few meters can be a huge help.

SPGs, when played well, are the primary moneymakers for high tier players. (In most cases) With premium, people I know who play the GW Tiger make an average of 65,000-80,000 credits per game. However, lower tier SPGs also make good money because their ammunition is cheaper and they cost less to repair.

This is pretty much what I was going to suggest.  If you're out on your own and see multiple enemies headed your way, don't try to be a hero.  If you can retreat to a position where your team can put fire on them, those 3 on 1 odds can turn into an ambush.

Heck, even if it's 1 on 1.  If I'm able to draw any enemies into an ambush I almost always do so.  I'd rather share a kill and move on to the next than win a close 1 on 1 with 10% health.

Right now, My PzKpfw III and my Hetzer are my two main tanks, my Wespe is my money maker. I'd suggest then to start on the arty path if you like it and use it since if you have good teamates, you will rarely die and only pay for ammo, in my Wespe I make 3-6k credits and pay anywhere from 400-2000 for ammo, typically I'll make at least 3k a game, even if I were to die in game, repairs are cheap.

Best money make I've seen is the M4 Sherman with a 105mm howitzer..  I routinely walk away with 40K credits (thats with prem, so assume about 27K without.  Minus about 3000 in expenses...

2nd best is the Easy 8 sherman... a little more difficult as you have to shoot more, but I've walked away with 80K with one...  

Both of those tanks are extremely cheap to repair and ammo costs  pennies.

most people for some reason hate the churchill, but all of you have no idea what this thing can do. I have pictures and screen shots to prove that it's the best credit earner for tier 5, period. I earn $36,000 credits and 1,900 exp from 1 game with 8 kills. (screen shot taken, but can't upload right now coz i'm at work.) I earned 1,000,000 credits with churchill in 2 days of CASUAL game play. Ofcourse my churchill has 116% crew (yes they go up more then 100% if you use modules). The cannon fires like a machine gun which allows me to kill all light / all arty / most medium tanks that rush me (4 or 5 kills average). And who said churchill has bad armor ?  it's got more armor then a KV-1, I take average 20-30 hits per game and I survive still. It's a good thing that most people hates it, that makes my churchill rare and puts me in the top tank for most lower Tier 5 games. The full repair only cost under 3,000 and ammo is cheap enough to ignore... look at the ratio $36,000 income to $3,000 repair... Most of you hate this tank without a clue of it's ability. Keep on hatin, and I'll keep on lovin =)

3-6k per match is really nothing. Tier 5 tanks are the real moneymakers, and buying tier 5 premium tank is even better, you can easily make 10k-20k credits per match, with luck even somewhere around 30k and in good matches you'll end up getting 1k XP.

I heard that playing a premium account will earn you more.

You could buy a gold tank, they're credit farmers.

You could also buy premium with gold and that will give you 50% more exp and credits for each battle.

Personally I have the following money making set up: leopard, pz3, stug3 and pz v-iv (preorder tank) all fully equipped, upgraded and elite.

Leopard and pz3 are excellent scout tanks, they are fast, maneuverable and can take as well as give out a beating (got 8 kills in Leo and 7 in pz3). They make good money regardless of defeat or victory or number of kills. On average a good 15k.
Stug3 can be dropped into battle, die right away and still come out with over 10k credits.
The pz iv-v as any other gold/ premium tank makes lots of credits in the same fashion as Leo and pz3. Put it into battle, see what happens, enjoy an average of 20 to 25k credits even after defeat an almost immediate death.

The main thing is that your money makers must be in battle "24/7". Make sure they are in battle before you take any "fun tanks" (for me that's tigers and Ferdinand) out for a ride.

I haven't had any credit issues since adapting this strategy if you will and can make a good million credits a day.

So, you get more credits and experience when you damage and capture the base?
Yep the more damage you do the more XP and credits you will get. All T5 tanks are the best to farm credits with my set up is the M4 Sherman, KV with the 107mm and the SU-85 also with the 107mm all 3 have great guns to do damage with and the more damage you do the more XP and credits you will get you also get credits for team play, you will get more XP and credits for staying alive and win the match.
If you damage a tank and a team mate kills it the you will also get extra credits and XP for that. If you are the frist to see a target and a team mate damage or kills it you will get extra xp and credits for that to.
