I’m looking for a fairly fun premium tank to use. I would like a mixture of money-making potential and alpha. I don’t like paper armour, but don’t mind okay armour and I don’t care about speed unless max speed is 30 Kph or under.

 

PS I don’t play wot daily so premium account isnt as good as a premium tank, and I’m only spending $52 AUD and under.

Isn’t the defender rarely on sale? And isn’t it really expensive?

I'd really recommend not jumping straight into a tier 8 premium for someone with 371 battles, not only will you ruin the battles for the people on your team purely because you're new to the game (Nothing wrong with that!!) but you won't learn the essential skills taught to you by lower tiers.

That and due to the current state of MM you'll regularly be fighting tier 10s, which will put you right off the game.

I really like tier 6. Good balance of tanks and player skills at that level. And a good number of balanced premium tanks.

Get a decent T5 prem. With your experience level, you will almost certainly make more money that way.

I might not have much experience in wot, but I am a veteran of wot blitz. I’ve played it since October 2015. The mechanics are slightly different, ik that, but I already know how spotting and camo work

Not a bad tank, but ain't no armour on that.

 

Anyway, if you DO know what you're doing, then a T8 is probably fine, but looking at the current T8s on sale, most of them are above your budget and many which are cheap still have little effective armour. Also, the BEST moneymaker premiums are ones which can fast-flank, use all or mostly regular ammo, and have good damage output - and those are all paper MTs like the Lorraine 40t or the Spaghetto 46. So selecting for which tank is going to make you the most money isn't really going to fly, to be honest. Just go for something you feel you can do well in, which is really the most important thing in terms of making money.

 

I'm currently seeing two tanks within your budget in the shop with reasonable turrets and which are decent all-round: The T-54 1st prot and the Cent 5/1 RAAC.

 

The Cent 5/1 is also on sale right now for only 28% off which puts it at $40 (That's Canadian, but the AUD is usually almost identical). The Cent also has far better pen on its standard ammo (190 vs 226), which is pretty crucial for making bank, though it's worth noting that the T-54 prot's shells are so cheap they're practically free. But the Cent 5/1 is faster (though with a lower PtW) AND better armoured, AND has better gun depression (10 vs 7).

Idk how to play the cent thou. Do u used it as a ridge line warrior? I’m good at going hull-down. But one thing is the poor alpha and DPM, although pen is stellar for a med.

The superpershing is another candidate, as it was buffed so it has great pen, a bit more armour and a better p\w ratio than before, although I’m not sure yet, as both don’t have high alpha and i play well with high alpha tanks.

I dont know whats your playstyle, but if youre tight on budget you can look at M4A1 Rev. 

 

Pros: 390 alpha, APCR default ammo (1400 shell velocity which makes a lot of difference), view range, -10 gun depression.

 

Cons: Everything else is con, mobility, Armour, camo.

 

If you get adjusted to its playstyle it prints credits. Till mid game play as sniper (you can shoot distant light tanks running at full speed). As game progresses watch map and relocate and snipe. Dont try to brawl ever. Also, if you wish to get Batchat, it needs high crew skills, so a french med is always good. Lorraine is probably more fun to play but its way costlier and trust me Rev will earn you more credits than Lorr even though it sounds weird.

Pick your poison:

 

-WZ 120 G. alpha, pen, speed, armor but long aim time.

-Scorpion G. Alpha, pen, speed, no armor, low camo.

-Strv. Alpha, pen, speed, camo, gun handlng, map dependant.

 

Edit: didn't know it was AUD.

The SP buffs are still in test so i wouldn't assume they'll go thru.

Yeah the skorp g is fun and prints credits, although I’ve taken on them in is3’s and they’re easy to kill

for wz and strv I’m not a great fan of sniping.
