I run an ELC to make credits.  On a good game I bank ~30-40k.  bad games I bank about 10k.  Oh, and this is without a premium subscription.

yeahhh, just finished my t1 heavy grind. Never touching that tank again. Its only marginally faster than a kv1 but with 1/2 the armor

 

The t1 heavy is pretty representative of the american heavy tank class....nice guns....soft on armor...need to be played like medium tank....shoot and scoot...do not get hit..and go nowhere by yourself...:)

The T1 Heavy is quickly turning into one of my favorite Tier 5 heavies (aside from the O-I Experimental that i hope to unlock). It has high mobility, good frontal armor (aside from the huge MG hatch and drivers hatches, but a little wiggling between shots helps make it more difficult to hit) and a gun that can pierce just about every opponent it will see. When it is top tier, it's a great brawler and it has great mobility so it can brawl on the east side of the map or flex over to the west side of the map within a few moments to support a failing flank. As a mid tier tank, it works much like a medium and plays a great supporting role to higher tier mediums and heavies. As a low tier tank, it also has the mobility to shoot and scoot while still providing support to your second line tanks. 

 

The biggest thing with the T1 Heavy is learning that you never want to expose those sides to anything and you want to find places where you can get embedded in a hull down position. When you are able to do that, it can be a force for even tier 7 tanks to deal with.

It is also a fun ramming tank

At tier 5 the BDR is one of the best. 90mm is cheap, good penetration and high damage. Wont bounce much but if you can get that gun to working its a great money maker.

 

I personally use the Tiger1 when i just want to derp around and not lose much money. its ap penetration is enough to where i dont HAVE to fire gold at anything I face, and it has a murderous rate of fire, so if im in a good support position i can have pretty high damage games. Toss in the cheap ammo cost and it can make bank pretty good. I dont do this much anymore since I repurchased a JT88....I lose just about every bloody game in it but its a credit printing press.

KV-2 you'll have fun while making credits.

 

Then soon credits become secondary and tears from your foes becomes your primary currency

My numbers were from the net income as opposed to credits per min.

Also I needed some credits over lunch to buy the Chaffee and outfit it and I can attest that the SU-100Y will just crapcredits all over your account.  I played 2 games and netted 88k and one of those games was a loss.

 

Did that in one game in my STA-2 on a defeat...and i fired some heat shells. LOL

Fully tricked out SU-85B with fully trained crew and skills. Gun rammer, binocs, camo net. Note: It's not a brawler. It has always been my ATM.

Just find the right T5 that you like to play. Credits roll in even in losses.

 

This is true , yesterday I had 9 wins in a row with my tier 5 BDR gaining 250,000 credits

The Cromwell B seems to rake in credits, even if I have a lackluster game.

m4, t-34, church3, su100y.

apart from that, mostly scouts, and they don't make much money

 

The last two should rake in good credits even with average games.

 

An important statistic is that a tank you like to play will be played more and that helps make money.  I have a Patton-59 but I really do not like it so it rarely rolls out. I play the heck out of my ISU-122S because I like it and do well in it (by my standards).

My KV-1 has been cursed the past couple of months and does't see anything but Tier 7 battles. This means at times I have to fire a lot of premium ammo which results in credit losses a lot of the time. Right now, my average net earnings per battle in the KV-1 is 6,640 credits while my Cromwell is around 12,080. If I'm running short on credits, I'll pull out my Cromwell B. As far as worst earnings efficiency in any of my tanks, it is easily my T29 costing me about 85% of my earnings to run.

Look for Tier V tanks with high pen standard rounds.

Run the StuG_IV personal missions, there's a couple of easy 50K silver rewards in the first few.
