So first thing's first, I'm from the visayas (Cebu city to be exact, Hi sa mga bisdak diri)


Di kaayo ko comfortable mag binisaya so I'll talk in english nya ginagmayng bisaya


I started playing WoT for so long (on and off lang kay tungod sa pag skwela) and so far I've only gone up to the 7th tier

I haven't really got to the 7th tier without actually selling my previous tanks (and a few more) just to cope with the cost of buying (doesn't include the upgrades, ammo, consumables) and right now I've given up hope on my main (which is yet to purchase the Tier 7 German TD Jagdpanther) I've practically given up because I've sold all my tanks (no premium tank on this account to grind credits without losing any to repairs) and I still haven't hit the price of 1.3m, Yes, I know "you should've waited for a sale" or "kasayang sa imong mga tank nya nausik ra" so since I abandoned this account I started a new one, it actually reached O-Ni (yes, I got to purchase it) and also has 2 premium tanks, namely, LTP and that tier 3 russian premium MT, and I would've gotten that tier 7 French LT if I also had the credits (Yes, I sold my T6 LT and T7 HT to try and buy it) but I still couldn't reach the amount, no matter how hard I try to grind on my low level premiums it still wouldn't be able to cut it. So I hopped over to another tech tree to try and focus on getting the Tier 10 German Heavy Tank Maus, I bought a Pz. IV H and worked my way up (trying so hard to minimize my cost of credits per battle) until finally I afforded to buy a VK 30.01 P, once I bought it, I worked my way up to fully research the parts I need to grind (still trying my hardest to spend less credits per battle, like using the small repair kit, small first aid kit and whatnot only when absolutely necessary.) and it happened again. I'm back to square one, exactly like my first account, I'm on a downward spiral and grinding credits on my low tier premiums just wouldn't cut the prices I need to get to Tiger P, I did everything, I sold useless modules (not related to the current tank I'm grinding for) right now I'm at 40k credits and it just pains me every time I finish a match on my T6 MT and see the credits barely even increase. I am so desperate for gold or credits just to help me with my problem, I joined a clan (PME, Philippine Marks of Excellence) so that I would get gold in participating in the clan battles but I didn't have a Cromwell or a tier 6 medium at that time so I didn't really benefit from joining, if anyone here would want to share advice, maybe help me get a premium tank that would help me grind credits faster than playing on low tiered premiums, maybe allow me to join their clan I would appreciate it!


P.S. sorry kung mura kog nanglimos sa ending kay nanglimos mn gyud ko:teethhappy:

Reading your post, I've already seen many faults that you have done which contributed to your financial issues and your gaming experience I suppose.


Believe or not, this game requires some planning if you want to enjoy playing without facing such drawbacks. Finances is one of them and sadly to say, it is something that you have to micromanage for the entirety that you play this game. 1.3 Million credits, that may seem monstrous to you and any new players but that price tag will continue rising. Tier 8s will cost you 2 Million, Tier 9 will cost you 3 Million, Tier 10 will cost you a whopping 6.1 Million! 


You mention the desire to participate in Skirmishes/ Clan Wars to earn gold/credits/etc. You can earn them but be prepared to invest heavily on your clan tanks. Gold rounds at higher tier matches, equipment to fully utilise your tank's capabilities in clan wars to increase the chances of victory.


Lastly, despite being a new player, you have already endeavoured in 3-4 different tech tree lines. I hate to admit it but that could also be the reason you lack credits to move up a tier. Even veterans and rather average players like me restrict to 2 trees at a time for efficiency and due to financial constraints. 


These are the points I can provide that may save you from your issue.


1) Purchase back atleast a Tier 5 tank. Why? Why should I purchase back a tank I have finished grinding? Well, you can earn credits from them! Tier 5 and 6 are by far one of the most profitable tiers in the game. Your StuG III is good for its tier and rather fun to play if TD is your thing. Furthermore, as a new player, this will help you build up your skillset. Tier 5 is a good tier to start if you want to learn some of the mechanics and how the game runs as a whole. 


2) Don't immediately sell your tank. Before you sell a tank, you will be told of how much you will earn from selling the tank. Do some simple calculations first. Will you have enough credits to move up after selling the tank? Tanks sell at half price and so if you were to pick up my first point, you have successfully spent 350k + the half price forgone from selling the StuG for example. Sometimes, it is better to keep the tank before to grind some credits. Certainly, that's better than selling the tank from the getgo.


3) Sell the premium consumables you earn as rewards. Some may disagree but if you see yourself not using them, sell them. Go to your 'Depot' menu and under consumables, sell the premium ones. They each sell for 10k credits so selling 20 premium consumables will earn you 200k credits! It is minor but they can help especially if you lots of them sitting there.


4) Don't grind multiple tiers. As a new player, take it slow. By grinding up one line, you can better micromanage your expenses. Multiple lines will force you to spend on tanks of different tier and lines and it can exhaust your balance if poorly managed.


5) You mentioned clan activities. Yep, Cromwell is a tank used a lot in clan related activities. I suggest you grind for it. It's not a bad grind to get the Cromwell and the Centurion AX (Tier 10) isn't all that terrible too (maybe?). But at your current stage, I strongly disencourage joining clans for clanwars. You should get a solid foundation on the game first before picking up CW strats. Randoms will never be like CW where three tanks actually focus fire or rush an entire line on the map. Brush up on the basics and grind up the trees you want rather than making your desire to join clanwars dictate what tank you grind for. Take it slow!


6) As MM_is_Broken has mentioned, play the soccer campaign that is to come this week! Free credits and it will be a relaxing getaway from Random Battles (hopefully). Play some tank soccer while you earn 25k credits and such from missions! Really, exploit the missions that rewards credits or credit boosters.


There are many more 'tips' I can provide but it all boils down to one key word - 'Discipline'.


You need to have the discipline to manage your credits. You need the discipline to not embark on numerous tank trees that will drain your finances sooner or later. You have to discipline yourself to control your greed. If you can't afford the tank, don't go and sell all your tanks. Instead, take your tier 5 or 6 and play as much battles as you can. You will be surprised that you've earned a million credits.



Why do I still play this game?

Absolutely amazing points from CaptainNoch, try following what he's saying, I know even for me there was a bit of handy info in there.

Also, Clan activities are more of an end game thing. If you want to learn to play and plat with some good people I hear WOT-U is a good place to go https://asia.wargami...wot/2000011185/

Best of luck.

Let the self-proclaimed credit scrounging miser of PBKAC give you some credit saving advice.


Stop rushing up tiers. The cost for maintaining upper tiers is only going to increase. If you aren't a good player you -will- lose credits per game in tier 8 onwards. At tier 10 credit loss occur even for decent players.


Keep a mid tier to help maintain credit income. Tier 5 and 6 are ideal. If your clan is participating in Strongholds, having a tier 6 like a Cromwell will help a lot.


You tell me you rushed up to the Jagdpanther but my heart and wallet screams in agony. You're telling me you bought a tank that isn't on discount?! Sales come on periodically, wait till the tank you want goes on discount and buy it at a discount ranging from 50%(!) to 15% depending on tier and event.


Speaking of discounts, buy equipment during discount periods as well. Why buy a Rammer for full price when you can buy it at a 50% discount? At that price you can buy 2(!) Rammers!


If you've saved up enough cash, then perhaps it is worth investing into consumable discounts. Consumables are necessary and will generally cost maybe about 3000 credits per game on average. This number can pile up after a while. The solution is to stock up on consumables when they go on discount. 50% consumable discount? Just invest a million credits into it or something. It is a long term investment that pays for itself in the long run.


Finally, you're in dire straits right now and you mortgaged your house to pay for whatever it is you wanted to buy. You feel like restarting your account. Wait! There is hope! Go to your "Depot" or Armory or whatever they call it after that stupid UI update. Sell the old modules you don't need anymore. Ground up to the O-Ni? There is that old O-I 100mm gun sitting around somewhere. Sell it to free up more credits.


The main issue you have is that you are rushing. Why rush? To get a tier 10? Getting a tier 10 is meaningless if you don't have the ability to maintain it. This game is not a race. The only prize for rushing to tier 10 is crippling debt.


RIP Aufklärungspanzer Panther 16th July 2015. You will be missed, friend.

But not for long. For "Heroes never die."

My long advice would be:


1. If you play a lot, you would earn many gold consumables in missions (eg large repair kit, auto fire extinguisher) sell them and leave a few for tourneys and events. (!!!!!! Sell them on regular price and not when they are on discount, else you would sell them half the price you should have get)


2. sell emblem rewards (eg country flags) you may have accumulated many of them, go to "exterior" of your tanks and sell them when they are not on discount sale.


3. go to your depot and sell modules you are not using anymore (you already did it though)


4. check out your unused shells in depot and sell them too


5. If you have accumulated such credits, be more patient in buying, wait for discount sale on equipment on crew retraining and skills resetting, and on tanks. Buy bulks of consumables (eg fire ext, med kit, small repair kit) when on 50% discount sale. I buy them by hundreds, I am assuming you are using them in battles. In the long run you are able to save 50% of all your used consumables in all your battles. 


6. Don't waste shells on pubs, you pay for them as you resupply, many players on low tiers fire shells on the air during the start of the battle, you just make your hit rate stats worse and you bleed out some little credits. Try to be accurate on games, make your hit counts, raise your hit ratio stat, making you an effective damage dealer. HE shells are more cheaper, carry a good amount and use them on resetting cap points, on killing arty, killing light tanks, tracking enemy tanks, blind firing on bushes and spots. If you are facing heavies higher tier and you are just bouncing your AP shells, use some HE and try to damage some modules and injure their crews.  Make sure you are adapt on clicking 1, 3 on your keyboard, and use that 2 on desperate moments only. 


7. Play "Campaign" missions and try to achieve both conditions and you will learn a lot of credits. I think tanks of Tier 4 above are required. So always keep a Tier 4 or 5 for farming. If you are in the German line, luchs and leopard even with low crew skill (no sixth sense) will be good to use, just keep on moving and find tanks low on HP that you could kill. 


8. If you completed a mission in the Campaign, you can do it again (click improve result) and complete them with honors, you would earn extra credits for it (eg 35,000-50,000)


9. Try to survive at the end of the battle and avoid full repairs, you will earn more credits by doing so, but remember to always help your team get that win, either by spotting, tracking, damage assist, and go for the kill if you can. Don't hide or camp ( camping depends on battle situation so always know when to flex), always look at the map and find a spot where you could help your team win flanks. 


10. Winning means credits. Try to manage crew skills, and crew resetting on how it will work to your advantage. ideal crew skill of 3 are sixth sense (commander) repair or camo (depending on tank) for crew,  2nd: Bia (brothers in arms), 3rd repair or camo (depends on your tank) at least that is what I believe for Clan war/ Strong Hold set-up Tanks. But if you are want a Random battle set-up type, that will really depend on  your play style, just make sure you have sixth sense and Bia on all crew, the rest will be up to you and make the most of your tank. Love your tank and it will give you credits.


11. Focus on the game, TT will always come, but make sure to think 'I need those credits' adjust and always know your role in the battle by reading your team tank line up vs. enemy tank line up. Fighting with teammates will just ruin your game. 


12. Sell tanks that you are not good at, keep the tanks that gets you lot of wins or high win rate. Sometimes there is a tank that does not do good for you especially in MM (Matchmaking) you are good at it but you get in losing team frequently, so your win rate for that tank is below 50 (you kill 6 tanks but still you lose), and that is not a good sign, and even how much you love that tank and you know that is a good tank, it just rage you out that MM hates it. Try to find a farm tank for you that give you wins and credits, If you have lot of credits already then you can play the tank you enjoy and want, though it puts you in losing teams. 


13. Participate in game events where WG gives premium tanks, they just given the T-34S recently in the battle of Kursk, there are 3 equipment to be earned in the first 20 battle missions on a daily basis and you can sell them if you badly need credits. Premium tanks are needed for fast accumulation of credits, so if you are wiling to buy them in real money, I advise you to buy them on sale, i just bought the Pz T 25 on a 50 percent coupon discount for 199. That would be your choice, I am not endorsing you shelving money on a free to play game. Never sell Premium tanks, they get rare in time and some of them, you cant buy in premium shop anymore, besides you can easily farm the credits of their worth if you have them on your garage, or they are good for collections, but its up to you anyway on how you badly need those credits. 


14. Participate in online tourneys, there you can find 1v1 matchups, or hook up with your buddies and participate in 3v3, or 5v5 challenges, look them up in Wot site tournament page. So I advice you to keep a tier 5 and 6, and 8 if you can go there that are tournament worthy. These tourneys gives you gold, as many participants don't show up, you get to advance easy, and if you win over other teams, you will get at least 100-300 gold for reaching quarterfinals. Use gold to buy in game premium days to make a credit grind (although the most 'best buy' prem days would be the 1 month value, wait for them to go sale but that's rare)


15. Try to keep up on your personal missions, esp the 'on track to tier 10 event', gives you lot of boosters you can activate to help you on your credit grind.


16. You can switch equipment like Binoculars, Tool box, and Camouflage net from another tank, so instead of buying another, you can save credits  by switching it manually or some mods swap them automatically. 


17. Although camouflage paint can be sold in your tank exterior, I do not recommend it, but if you have extras, and you badly need silvers, sell them instead of selling premium tanks. 


18. There are events and missions that gives free premium days, if you are on a premium, don't let it go to waste, try hard to solo grind it as platoon takes you longer to battle waiting for mates to finish the game. Always log in on a daily basis and check out wot site pages, even if you wont play for that day, you might get some surprise gifts or bonus codes to your liking. 


19. I can't hardly think of anymore advice for readers to be able to gain or save some little credits on their tanking life. If you have tier 4-6 tank on the grind, hook me up on a platoon and I'll help you out on your grind if ever I'm online and that I can. 


I'm not a hundred percent sure, but these are my insights, if I gave a wrong idea, please correct and so I may learn from it. I'm not an expert in this game and still trying to improve my game-plays. Hope I could be of a little help to my fellow tankers.
