Just my thoughts *with an edit!

The T-44-100 standard shell carries a pen of  168-190  for 187-313 damage, depending on the distance  for 252 silver
Then the "premium shell" pen is  218-247 for the same  187-313 damage depending on the distance for 4400 silver. 

Whoa! This is a total and complete ripoff as the T44/100 faces tier  9 and 10 tanks.  And an increase of over 1500% in cost for the same damage is just not equitable at all. 

 

(edit - Nice callout MacDaddyMatty!)

 

 

Well this is about whats the most cost effective, not what you can use gold on.  You used to play these tanks to make money, not spend it.  Crazy back in those days wasn't it?

in the average battle, how much credits do you make per shot though?

If I am remembering right the rev is technically the best tank to make credits a credit multiplier only out done by the hype 59 but the shells are dirt cheap for 390

Yeah, because of hugely different DPMs and other variables, it would be better to rate them as credits spent per 1000 damage done as an example.

why does T92's premium round cost 5600 for 150 damage? It's not like it has some amazing pen or anything...

You need to factor in DPM/ROF as well.

The cheapest thing I know of to run is the EVEN 90, but that's because it only fires about 6 shells a minute - about 1200 credits a minute.  
The Worst? The JT 8.8 because of its almost 4 second reload with proper skills and items.  252x13= a lot of credits burnt.
The UDES is also very expensive.  Most games I barely break even.

You guys must be unicum level if you have something to fire at so often you have to calculate at rounds per minute.  I'm just some noob over here who isn't in some top clan raking in more gold than what I know to do with.

My EVEN 90 is one of my few money-makers when I'm not paying for premium time.  All the rest of my T8s suck money like a black hole out of my account in standard account mode.
