Hello, i was a beta tester and in the beta i just got all my creds from free gold. I only play on the weekends and there's no free gold. I have a t46, and im wondering... how to get 300k a month.

300k Credits a month seems to long. Alot of tier 5 tanks can get 20-40k a match depending on your skill so maybe few hours to get that maybe.

Or get a Lowe I can get 300k credits in 3-5 matches depending how good I do. I will be honest I don't really like my Lowe much prefer my US Med line tanks, but it pays the credit bills very well.

Premium tanks or a bunch of Tier 4/5 scout tanks.

I've made up to a million credits in a day. But that's about 8 hours of playing.

Get a tier 5 tank - they're the best moneymakers. Tier 3-4 tanks make shit by comparison.

As implied by the others, if you can't buy a premium tank, run one of your Tier 5 tanks. I use my KV. I can get 200k a night (3-4 hours) pretty easily, and get 300-400k on more successful nights.

If you are only at Tier 2, 3 or 4, there's no getting around just grinding to get to Tier 5.

For better or worse, without paying real money, there is no fast and easy way.

Arty gets a lot of credits for their level. It is always a good idea to have one in your garage if you need some quick cash. :Smile_great:

What are you aiming for that requires 300k a day

Keep going and get to the KV with the 107mm gun and you will have one of the best tanks for making credits

At least according to the game you're averaging 144 exp/game and you've played less than 100 games. I salute your dad for not letting you play a crazy amount of video games or letting you spend a ton of money to take short cuts. Best advice is to focus on a couple lines of tanks, get to tier 5 and don't worry about "rushing" up the tech trees. Play to have fun and work on improving your skills in each match. If you're really averaging 400 exp per match in a tier 5 tank your earnings will be more than enough for whatever you are trying to buy. I run tier 5/6 mediums and SPGs with 1 tier 4 light and I can easily do 300k in a night.

A good idea is to get a tier 5 premium tank. Mix of premium tank + tier 5 (best moneymakers) is the PERFECT moneymaker. Lowe and KV-5 were great moneymakers, but it seems like they were nerfed in terms of credit gain (it's hard to make profit on an average game as ammo costs A LOT), so I suggest Churchill - it's a pretty decent tank, atleast I enjoy it. The sort of machine gun-like cannon is perfect for pissing off heavy tanks and detracking them or taking out modules and the massive amount of shells you can have at very low price, oh the joy.

You need more than one tank to begin with. Grab you a couple of tier 4 or 5s and just rotate through them. I run 6 tanks from t4 to t8 and I can easily make around 300k a day if I get a good multihour session going. I try to stay under 4 hours a day though, otherwise I would be playing ALL day and would become a WoT zombie.... :angry:

Since you think Lowe makes huge amount of Money look at this:
Top Gun, Reaper, Sharpshooter and I still made just 39K - 12K = 27K

So about 39k purse won. Repairs = about 2k. Ammo = about 10k.

The repair didn't seem bad, I'm thinking you sustained little damage. You had three honors so that might've added 10k to what you otherwise would've won. I think ammo is a bit on the high side, but I primarily play tier 4-5 TDs (Stug and Hetzer) and arty (Priest). My lower tier tanks arn't a fair comparison but they do generate minor profits.

So total profit after expenses = 27k. That doesn't seem bad. For my Stug and Hetzer, I earn roughly 5k profit per game. My Priest brings in a bit more.

Credits arn't an issue for me since I have 1,800,000-something from mainly low tier experimenting. The Hetzer was my first moneymaker while the Stug suffers from being put into tier 8 battles. Playing in beta helped make this account's start up successful.

That would be without.

My games look similar.  It's 1000 credits a shot when you throw AP.  

When you see 100K+ games, those are really good games and likely gross and on premium.  Probably harder to come by now that there are plenty of Tier 8, 9 10 tanks out there to hit back.

15K net is easy. 20K-25K net fairly common.  30k net on non-premium a pretty good game.  The operative word is net.  

Best non-premium money maker I've played is the upgrade M4 Sherman.
