Alright guys, please don't turn this into a pissing contest about stats. I'm looking for a tier 6-8 premium tank that is well rounded in both the credits and win8 achiever. I need credits bit I've been working on win8 lately and don't want to sacrafise that foe the credits. Any ideas? I make awesome credits in like my is6 but getting anything over green is difficult, atleast for me. And I enjoy the lights like the black dog but it doesn't really print credits. I hope you understand what I'm asking. Thanks for the advice o7

I would focus on getting better in the IS-6. That was you'll make more money, and your stats will go up.

T92 or M41 90. Tier 8 lights are good credit earners and it doesn't take a lot damage to get good wn8 battles. Unfortunately these are rarely on sale you are probably best to use a medium/fast td with a big gun (skrop g/m4a1 rev/strv s1 etc.).

I have more premiums than I'm willing to count and get sad about lol. So take your pick. The is6is fun but you almost have to double your hp in dmg. Not the easiest for me in every game. I like the liberty and feel I'm decent in it. But it's another high dmh tank. Is there a 2k dmg tank that will make 75k or so? I run premium.

For credits you want high-pen tanks that don't need to use premium much.  Good armor is nice, too.  Spam your Defender. 

 

To truly maximize WN8 you want a generally crappy tank average people do bad (damage) in and then spam premium in it to inflate damage numbers.  Light tanks usually fit the bill here -- spam your Type 64 with a lot of premium ammo loaded. 

 

Honestly I'd just spam the Defender overall.

They have this feature in game that shows every tank stat, that you can customize too.

Warning, just an average player that returned after a few years of absence. YMMV. 

 

My best premium WN8 achiever bar none, is the Type 64 - Chinese T6 light. I have averaged <2600 WN8 in it over ~170 battles. You cannot beat that for $18 or so, but won't make you lots of credits.

The T34-85M  tie with the T92 LT for 2nd best at <2250 WN8 avg, but I only have 4 rounds in the T92LT it so far - not a fair comparison and neither is readily available, although you might have the T34-85M as a reward.

 

From the freely available T8s, my highest WN8 is on the T-34-3, followed by Lowe, FV 4202 & M4A1 Revalorisé. All of them make good credits.

Nothing will make that much unless you're consistently doing ~3k damage. 

That being said, someone mentioned the Type 64. That's a decent choice. So is the Cromwell B, and even the Rudy. (They most likely will be in the calendar this month.) The Super Pershing is actually pretty good for credits and stats, but you may have to shoot a lot of APCR. (You'll still profit, with prem account.)

I find I do pretty well in the Lowe as it pulls good damage potential even against X’s.  I often make 75k or better in it.  I also run premium.  You’ll see from my signature I’m only an ok player, so it should be acheiveble for you.  My son rocks in the CromB, so that’s maybe a possibility too.  SkorpG is also a great credit maker in my hands.  WN8 seems best for me in the Lowe?

Light tanks are good for padding WN8

I think, for the sake of consistency, your best bet is either the FCM 50t or the Super Pershing.  I spam those two as well as the Lorraine 40t.  I'm most consistent in the Super Pershing and haven't had many battles where I've needed to spam a ton of APCR.  The 3/5/7 format makes it much easier to make money, quite frankly.  I know, at worst (pref MM) I'm going to be up against a maximum of five tier 9s.

Shell cost, shell cost, and, oh...shell cost...

The biggest earners are high DPM tanks with low shell cost...but nothing earns well if you don't do good in it, so if you prefer heavies, go with a premium heavy that has low shell cost, if you like mediums go with a high DPM premium medium that has low shell cost, etc.

 

Take a look at vbaddict...

http://www.vbaddict.net/wot.php

Pick "statistics" then pick "tank statistics"...

Scroll down and pick "net income"...or "wn8 efficiency"...

Then scroll down and pick tier, tank type, server cluster, etc., etc., in any combination you want...

 

If you don't want to click around on vbaddict and prefer a video you can look at these...but I think these videos would be based upon ALL servers or EU server as these videos are from an EU content provider...and keep in mind, these credit values he says in the videos are "averages", so if you do good in the tank you will earn more credits than he lists in the video...

Some tanks/classes are easier to farm purple points in than others. 1000 damage in a t8 light is a lot more wn8 than a tier 8 TD.

lol yea ok. Go play the 140. I bet you don't break yellow stats, because the avg damage is so high. If you can't contribute to the conversation STFU

True, but not entirely true...  ;)

 

Just look on vbaddict at "tank statistics" and pick "wn8 efficiency"....there are a number of tanks that will inflate wn8...

 

Example: If you put a poor skill person, a medium skill person and a purple player in an AMX 1357 GF...and have them play just the AMX 1357 GF for a month...every one of those players wn8 will go up over that month just because the AMX 1357 GF is more OP than other tanks its tier...

 

Same with Type 64, Type 62, M 4190mm GF, etc...

Type 64

I started an EU account with just a Type 64 and used zero premium rounds or consumables.

 

Managed to earn enough credits to buy optics, rammer and vstab in a small handful of games.

 

Overall  
Battles 39
Win Rate 61.54%
WN8 2,245

Aim, aim, aim.

Lag, lag, lag...
