Best Credit Machine

What are the best credit making machines that I can get whilst not going over 60$, so, in other words, not Musashi. 

I was thinking of Alabama or Lo Yang, since these are credit makers, not trainers, I don’t need to have the corresponding line. 

Thanks in advance!

Missouri but you can no longer get it unfortunately next best bet is Alabama.  Others opinions may vary.

There are many ships to choose from, but before you go purchasing a premium boat I want to show you what is possible with just tech tree boats, premium account, camo and flags. Here are 2 examples of defeats that made money. Then some tier 8 premium boats, all of which are currently available in store.

How about Perma Camo Yamato?

That is my main source of credits income. It won’t bring in money like Mo but it does print money reliably.

Between those two, the Alabama.  The Lo Yang is not a good credit earner, as it's playstyle is not a heavy damage dealer.  Granted, you can have great games in it, but the Alabama is a very reliable source of income.  Now, in terms of ranked influence?  The Lo Yang wins by a mile.

But, as it has been shown by previous posters, the best credit earner is the ship you perform best in.  Find a higher tier premium you mesh well with, and your money problems will be resolved.

Premium only?

The best credit earners (they print money) are:

Missouri, Atlanta, Scharnhorst, Tirpitz, Atago.

Failing those and from the ones available I would say Alabama.

You have 3 options to grind mass creds.

 

1) Buy a T7/T8 premium ship.

2) Use free exp to get Musashi or Kronstadt.

3) Buy the premium camo for a T10 ship. A T10 ship with it's premium camo can rival a Missouri in credit earning potential.

All good scores and examples. Just to clarify, though, credits are the same regardless of win or defeat.  Only XP is affected by win/loss.

Would playing well in Hindenburg net me a lot of credits with the premium camouflage? Tempted to get Atlanta as my USN CL trainer...

...but I think premium camouflage it is if it even begins to rival Musashi, let alone Missouri.

How do you get 7 kills and only 111k is my question, I have gotten upwards of 250k in Hindy and Roon but only had 2 kills. 

Thanks for the feedback!

The best earners are going to be the ones YOU play best in. Find the tech tree ships that you do well in and find a comparable premium ship (higher the tier the better).

I'll never save up enough Free XP to get one of the 750K ships now that I am taking a break from the game.

Kills themselves don't give that much XP.   It's almost all about the damage done.  Kills are a relatively small bonus on top of damage. 

He probably followed Aeroon's method on how to Kraken :-)

As others have said, a ship you do well in will generate credits (with some exceptions).  A premium similar to that ship will do much better due to lower service cost and premium camouflage (and sometimes a boost in basic earnings).

For me (and avoiding the Tier 9 ships), I find the following fairly reliable (and roughly in order of median net earnings with premium time):

  • Nelson
  • Lo Yang
  • Kidd
  • Tirpitz
  • Montana
  • Dallas
  • Atlanta

Other ships that do well, but that I don't have as many battles in include:

  • Leningrad
  • De Grasse
  • HSF Graf Spee
  • Dunkerque
  • Alabama
  • Prinz Eugen
  • Arizona

Other than Montana, I have not lost significant credits in any battle while driving these ships.  I have been net negative on credits with the DDs in this list, but usually the next battle makes up for it (and more).

Well 1 million of that was from completing the magnificent five challenge. So it was was really just a 360k game.

IMHO, any ship that you do well driving will earn you a decent amount of credits. I mostly play tiers 6-7 and I have almost 600 million credits. (Perth and De Grasse at tier 6 and Belfast, Fiji, Helena, and Indianapolis at tier 7)

Absolutely. If you don't have a Mighty Mo then you will find a ship that you like and perform well in to be your ATM. I would advocate Premium Time also.
