So what would you guys say is the best premium tank for a new player to grind credits in?

I've been given to understand that diving into a tier 8 premium tank like a Lowe or a T34 straight away is a bad idea for newer players so I'm open to suggestion for all tiers.

I'd prefer a tank that does not take a lot of 'skill' and makes plenty of credits.

Thanks for your time!

most tier2~3 prem tanks make pretty much the same amount of credits.

 

personally, if i were to recommend a prem tank to anyone id only recommend something at a tier they already have... in your case, 2 i guess.

but then there arent any really good keeper prems let alone tanks capable of grinding lots of credits there... so i'll skip to tier5

given you get to tier4 or so(with which you will see all the tanks the CC3 will face), the churchill 3 is a nice prem that doesnt need alot of apcr, and is pretty straight forward. the rest of the tier5s are pretty shitty or not easy for someone who just started the game. it makes okay creds i guess

^ Churchill 3 or a Valentine II , early on invest on crew by buying at least 75% crew to drive your tank rather than 50% . Also when driving your new prem , try to figure out for now the weakspots of tanks by classes . It is a lot effort to remember individual tank's weakspot and tier 3-7 tanks generally have the same weak spots location . Except for Japanese Heavy Tanks , only their sides are weak .

Thanks for the suggestions.

I am enjoying the gameplay right now although progress does seem a little slow, specially earning credits which is why I was considering about investing in a premium to see how much that can speed up things.

In particular I am enjoying the SPG gameplay. It seems to be pretty tough to actually aim though what with the auto swiveling and stuff.

Playing SPG and earning money don't belong in the same sentence, unless its "I'm never earning money whilst I'm playing SPG!"

 

Every new player's always attracted to the potential to 1-shot a tank. You'll soon realise that that it's a short-lived experience. As you move up in the tiers with SPG you'll find that players are less likely to sit in the open and wait for you to shoot at them, the reload is longer, the dispersion is worse etc. etc.

 

I can not strongly reccomend enough that you do NOT get a SPG premium tank.

 

Committing to a premium tank is not a good idea until you get to around tier 5. At the moment, you still can't quite determine which style of play suits you best. I used to love slow HT and was grinding UK MT so I chose the Matilda BP. I haven't played that tank recently for about 3-4 months, maybe more.

 

Bottom line is wait until you reach tier 5 - look at which lines you enjoy and make your choice then. You don't really need a lot of credits at tiers 1-5, so crew training should be your #1 priority. Aim for your crew to be 100% on their primary qualification for every vehicle.

For a new player, I would suggest the Pz.Kpfw. S35 739 (f) at tier 3 .  You can do well in that tank as it has great armour and seems to be able to handle itself even when facing tanks 2 tiers above.  I have tier 8 premium tanks that I don't use to grind creds because you actually have to do well, game after game to see the reward.  If you play one game well and then 2 bad ones ... well, you just wont see a the creds pouring in.

Churchill III is probably the best choice for new players, though if you could get a KV-220-2 in the Gift Shop, that's probably just as good if not better. Though if you want to invest, wait until December for WG's premium tank sales.

 

And premium account is a good idea. The faster credit and xp grinding will make you go up the tiers faster, and be able to buy equipment faster. Buying premium account is also the most cost-effective use of gold (that and equipment demounts for gold)

As for SPG, it's not yet a good idea. SPG in WoT are currently over-nerfed with the "wiggle" bug and the cumulative accuracy nerfs; you'll have a very long and expensive grind with SPG as compared to other tanks. It's not a good investment for your account as well, since you'd have to learn basics in normal tanks before you can use SPG optimally.

 

As for premium-tank SPG, the only one available currently is the Sexton SPG. It's...not really a good investment.

Buy a Churchill 3, it makes a decent amount of credits as you don't really need to fire sprem, it's easy to use, and it trains your Russian heavy crews.

Matilda, Churchill and Valentine Russian Premiums.  Any one should serve you well.

 

Recommendations as to which?

See the above Posts, but have an Idea on what path you are taking through the Tree, to decide which is going to be the best fit for the line you are grinding.

A bit early for a premium. Play a few hundred more games before deciding to comit money to it.

 

Anything tier 5 and below is decent for a beginner who wants a leg up. Stay clear from higher tiered stuff.
