Play to complete the daily ops and level up in the monthly campaign. There's a healthy amount of silver in the monthly prizes.

The M4 Sherman has a very good derp gun, and ammo is cheap.

Good work then!

You don't need to have a tier VIII premium to make good silver. The Churchill III at tier V has a 57% silver bonus, which is one of the highest in the game. The Fury at tier VI has 50%. Both make good silver if you play well. 

 

If you do buy a tier VIII, the STA-2/Senshi have the 50% silver bonus and make good profits.

When I was still struggling to earn silver I found that high pen tanks would help.  Low pen would tempt me to use the premium ammo more = less silver.  Also, stick with the basic consumables until your silver situation is where you want it.  A single 20k consumable can erase your earnings for a battle.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

Despite being nerfed you can run any premiums through live fire in war stories, you get between 10-25k a time and it is quick. Also if you can get hold of a tank such as the captured king tiger and run it through proving grounds island race you get 80-100k with the ops turned on. Completing the current ops is also a good earner.

Well if you want to earn gross amounts of silver, premium time is the way to go. If you can toss that in with some decent premium tanks, you’ll be in business. If no premium time, then premium tanks are the way to go, you’ll just have to pick ones that don’t dish out a ton of shots. If you don’t have premium time, or premium tanks, then I would pick a tier 5 or 6 tank that you do very well with, and play the heck out of it. Wish we could gift silver, I’d toss you a million or two....

You are really asking one of the fundamental questions about the game.  There is no simple answer. It is part of learning how to budget your expenses within the game.  Having said that play premium tanks, use premium time, use boosts in the right spot would be a nice start,

 

I think there might be a silver boost on Sept. 21 for all first time victories on tanks.

Don't go for tier 8 to get silver, you get too many bad battles to make silver consistently because you end in tier 9 or 10 battles and need premium ammo. I got tier V premium heavy T14 and played it like a medium tank, it makes nice stream off silver.  Tier 5 has nice premiums and they are fun to play and cheap  to get.

Max of 10 prem shells is my best advise, lot's of times people shoot prem when it's not needed.

Those prem shells cost a lot, cause the regular shell would have penned also.

People say things like i was fighting a Heavy tank 2 tiers up, but in those cases there is no shame in backing up and let your teammate who is 2 tiers up fight him, while you flank or as said back up give support fire or just go and fight a different area / tank that is more of your tier level.

It's like going towards the weaker flank and find out the red team is lemminging that flank, better to do a 180 and survive then keep going forward and die a 1000 deat's cause 3 vs 13 is a chanceless fight.

Do contracts where you get bonus silver hou have to do all your X2's and just make easy silver, consumables can be expensive so using small kids will save a lot.

So premiums make tons of money, the Dread-naught, I keep calling it Judge Dredd, is easy money just shoot HE all the way and silver will come in by the boats.

Premium time will double your silver, but wait till December cause then it will be 50% off to buy !

Platooning can help, cause you are stronger with a friend then standing alone.

I DONT wanna promote arty, but they do make you easy silver, cause no consumables or prem shells are needed, you can stay alive until the end if positioned smart and watch the map carefully.

And don't rush the Tech trees, cause higher tiers are harder to play, 1 mistake and your game can be very much over if your not quite ready for them, hard to recover and still get a good outcome if your crippled just cause you made 1 mistake and had 2/3 TD's with high alpha take a bite out of you.

Last part i say in general, no clue on how many games you played op or how your stars are. I sometimes have the best games afther making a mistake to soon to fast, cause i tend to play very agressive, but i also know how to recover from those mistakes and take a 2nd line or even 3rd line position, just because i had became a 1 shot lol.

But most of all i would like to say, have fun !

I finally got out of poverty when decided to stop buying stuff when I had less than 6 million, once I had that float I never had the problem again. Now I normally have between 70 and 110 million.

Get a KV-2. You won't earn as much silver as a tier 8 premium but if you just go around spamming HE out of the 152mm you can make 40k silver a game.

War is a Democracy and the enemy always gets a vote.

3 MoE's: E-25, M41 Walker Bulldog, E-50, Snakebite, E-75, T32, Tiger 131 - In order obtained

For pure silver, play the single player War Stories. Each completed campaign nets a half price premium tank. Buy either the Ripper or Snakebite. 

Both are weak/adequate for different reasons but you will get lots of silver.


Three marked tanks: VK30.01H, O-I Experimental, PzIII/IV,

How many lines are you grinding at once?  Stick to two maximum.  Sell tanks as you finish them.  Use gold to unmount the equipment.  Don't feel pressured to buy the tier 10s immediately. 

 

Sell camo nets and binoculars when you aren't using the tank they are mounted on and buy them back before you play the tank again

 

For the past two or three years they've given away a tier 8 premium during the Halloween op. If they do it again this year make sure to earn one.

 

Edit:  Your stats show that you are a reroll account with a 3318 Wn8 in 390 games.  You would still be a unicum even if half your games weren't played in the T1E6 and 38H.  It also shows you have a tier 8 premium, the Skorpion G.  Not sure why you need our advice.

I came from PC after my computer broke  where I had premiums for silver :) and the scorpion G was a rental so it wont let me use it sadly :/

Edit as for the rest I was doing 4 lines do I will probably do that and switch to 2 :)

Search the forum archive for that old Joe Da Frogman guide to silver. It was great advice I used when starting out.

Miss some of the posts from those really knowledgeable original forumers.

The Scourge and the Vengeance are good silver earners
