I've seen people posting pics of Missouri games where they earned over 1 million credits.  

Can you do that with any tier 8 premium or is Missouri special?

How is credit income calculated?

Missouri appears to have a very high credit modifier, but it's also a tier IX. I've earned nearly 800,000 in Alabama on a decent match, but that's using camo and economic signals. Missouri seems to be unique in it's earning potential.

Missouri is unique.

But 7-digit credit games aren't unheard of in T8 premiums such as Tirpitz and Kutuzov.

Missouri is a super ATM. Number 1 reason why she was taken away

My highest premium is a T7 Leningrad.  Best I've done is about 500-600k credits.  

So in tech tree Tier 5-7 tend to be the best money makers due to lower service costs but with premiums the higher tier the better...   Is that a fair statement?

To those replying, the Missouri is *not* unique: well, other in 1 way, it's that way *by* default. But the Prinz Eugen has an additional camo that lets it get comparable Credit earnings.

Here are a few samples of different tier ships making great credits ...both premium and non premium. I use any flags and camo available and a premium account of course. Both victories and defeats.

Does everyone agree with this statement?

Follow up question...do elite ships change earning potential at all or is it the same?

Sounds correct to me. Elited tech tree ships gain no bonus aside from the ability to pay to convert their xp to fxp.

Elite ships have no change in their credit earning calculations.

Base earnings go up with tier.  Premium ships make more credits than equivalent tier tech tree ships provided that you perform as well in them.

It would be nice if Elite ships had a little credit and free xp bonus or something to give players a a little more incentive to break them out.  Once you've passed them up in the tech tree there's not much reason to play them unless it's for nostaligia or a specific campaign.  For example I like Lyon but once I got Richeliu Lyon has been rusting in her port.  Now if Lyon had some kind of credit and free XP bonus as an elite ship then I might break her out some.

That said, performing well at high tiers isn't a problem for me if it's a good ship.  Some of my highest damage games have been in T9 and T10 ships.

Actually Roma and Kii both out earn Eugen  Adler lowers her repair cost by 10% while boosting credit income by 10% Kobayashi camo  for Roma and Kii lowers their repair bill by 50% and increases credit income by 20%

"Mo" change as in "Mo' is bigger and better? I want mo'?"

Or "mo" as in typo of "no"?

No one mentioned the Atago yet but that is my money maker. I never got the Missouri because I took a long year plus break from the game and just returned. Since I been back I needed to get 8 million more credits to buy the Shimakaze and I used the Atago to grind that out in one evening. Even when I had a bad game and did only 50k damage I'd make 300-350k in credits. If you have a decent game I'd make 450-500k a game and if you do really good then 800K. So if your not the best player you can still easily make nearly a million credits per every 3 games in the Atago. If your above average then a million per 2 games. 
Also the Atago is great for training new captains and it doesn't cost a lot to repair/service at the end of every match. If they ever offer the Missouri again I'll pick her up but a lot of people have told me in game that they use the Kii to earn their money and you can still buy that one as well. Not sure how much it earns but it sounds like even a noob can make money in it.

No. Missouri is in a class by itself. You can make money in any T10 with premium time and a premium camo but it won't be as much per game as a Missouri. It's not just he camo. WG are kings of hidden stats.

  Assuming some skill with the various ships, I would say 1) Mo, particularly with premium account, 2) Kidd, 3) Atago or Kutuzov; maybe Kutuzov because you don't mount premium heal, 4) Leningrad. Leningrad is one of those solid, money in the bank earners, not an 800k a game on a fantastic game earner but a reliable 300-400k earner and a very good, possibly the best earner for a standard account.

My completely non scientific and unofficial estimates on net silver earnings given equal games and assuming all premiums purchasable for money directly have the same multiplier in a given tier.

T8 Premiums: 100% The baseline.

Missouri: 130%

Mushashi: 110% 

T10 with Permacamo: 90% You're ahead of where you would be by 90k silver and have a built in Zulu flag, joining a clan with the -10% class discount building and running repair flags basically puts your service fee at a level close to T8 premiums with a silver multiplier close to that as well.

T7 Premiums: 80% The angle here is that even with the Narai golden goose dead and gone, Ultimate Frontier and  Hermes are still available and can provide consistent earnings above that of T8 randoms.

T6 Premiums: 70% The drop off is pretty huge, but the silver lining is as with T7, you can grind out co-op scenarios. This is also the last tier where DCP2 is optional, imo since you're not gonna lose many credits even if your connection blows up and you don't load in.  

T8-9 with Permacamo: 65-70% You can earn a lot of credits gross, but the service fees in spite of the offsets and 'need' to run at least DCP2 can really eats into the bottom line.

T5 Premiums: 60% The service fee is a pittance at this tier so running without premium consumables is definitely an option if you just need silver.

T6-7 with Permacamo: 55% 

T4 Premiums: 50% 

T2-3 Premiums: 35% You have to actively work to lose credits at these tiers.

T5 and lower: <35%

Tier 5-7 ships tend to do a very good job of earning credits, both premiums and standard tech tree variants.  It's a credit-earning sweet spot.

The earnings of high tier premiums are only good if you bothered to learn the game before playing them.....
