I have a couple of questions regarding WoWs premiums. 

1. Do Tier 9s make the most credits as far as general credit grinding?

2. How much of a difference is there in credits earned between 8 and 9?

3. Is it as much of a benefit as it seems to only get up tiered by 1 instead of 2 by playing tier 9 prems?

Out of the currently available 9s & 8s what are the top ships?

I have a lot of 5s some 6s a 7 or 2 and 1 8... Thinking of maybe picking up another one..


Thanks

  1. In general, yes.  In actuality, it's more complicated than that.  The order of credit earning goes:  Missouri -> Kii or Roma with Makoto Kobayashi premium camouflage -> Tier 9 Premiums -> Prinz Eugen with Adler camouflage -> Tier 10 Premiums -> Tier 8 Premiums.
  2. It's about a 12% to 20% increase between a tier 8 premium and a tier 9 premium.
  3. What matters most is whatever ship you do best in.  If you suck in a tier 9 premium but kick constant butt in a tier 7 premium, you're going to make more credits with the tier 7.  It also pays to keep in mind that if you like playing a given ship, you'll grind it more often just for the sake of, greatly increasing your available credits.
  4. Top ships for tier 9:  Georgia, Jean Bart, Alaska.  Top ships for tier 8:  Bayard, Lenin, Enterprise, Irian, Kidd, Massachusetts.

  1. Yes, though with exceptions. Tier 8s with Kobayashi camo earns a bit more.
  2. Uh ... Enough to notice, not enough to write the newspapers about?
  3. The difference in income offsets the lack of targets two tiers up, plus you can do damage easier in general

Which ones to pick? These are my picks:

  • Jean Bart
  • Georgia
  • Alaska
  • Friesland

@LittleWhiteMouse Bad mouse, not mentioning Friesland.

2: 16.67% for "normal" premium ships

3: Absolutely, T9 have very good matchmaking right now and you will find yourself top tier quite often. And even if you are not top tier, you will almost never be bottom tier.

At tier 9 you would ideally want Georgia, Alaska/Friesland/Neustrashimy are also excellent choices

At tier 8 Atago is the go to ship alongside Bayard, Cossack for DDs and Lenin as BB
