The tiger 2 is an amazing tank, but each time my team loses i have to pay silver for the repairs/ammo etc. Right ? This costs way too much silver in the tiger 2's case, for example i played this one match on El Halluf and i managed to get 3 kills. Unfortunately our team lost the match. As i went to my garage i found out that i lost 11.000 silver !! So i decided to take a look back at the stats of the match and it showed me that the repair costs were 12.000 and the ammo cost me 10.000. Now keep in mind that i had 3 kills and did like 2700 damage to enemy tanks. I wonder if im shooting diamonds with this thing, purchasing the e-75 is gonna be a pain in the [edited]this way.. >.<

It can be expensive. If you have a tank that you make good credits with use that to supplement your silver.

Kinda weird because the tiger II is my money maker tank, I normally make at least 10-20k silver a match

2700 damage is decent, but not enough for Tiger King to make a big sum of  money

it's like my T110E5

i normally have to deal like 4000 damage to make like 20000 silver within 80% hit ratio and without using repair kit or first aid and by winning

if our team lost, then 4000 damage would still lose money

well, for my M48 Patton, i did nearly 9000 damage and earned 100,000 silver which is the most silver i've ever made

 

for money making tanks, i recommand tier1 and tier7

tier1 baby tanks will surely make around 7000 silver per battle if u manage to deal some damage

tier7 tanks is the best money makers i believe, like scout tank T20, moving fortress AT7, king of the field Tiger

these tier7 tanks will easily make around 50,000 silver if you play them well and your team wins

At this point in the E-100 line you should consider increasing your earnings and silver income. Obviously there's the option of acquiring a premium account (which is a common thing for high tier players). But if you can't buy premium then you need a tank that you feel comfortable in (you do well in it) at a lower tier.

 

This way you can fund your Tiger II escapades and actually purchase your upgrades and the E-75 itself. You're probably thinking this is too much work, but you have reached a conclusion already and that's why you've come to the forum. This is a straightforward game with straightforward mechanics, there aren't many complex or ingenious loop holes for getting around the obstacles in your way. Balance your time between your money-making tank and the Tiger II so that you are actually earning silver still (perhaps two or three matches in your money-maker for every one match in the Tiger II).

I take it your not using premium?

Your going to struggle to make any silver using a non premium account on tiers 8 and above both my tigger 2 and is3 make a good amount of silver on a score like the above I'd be walking away with at least 15 k silver maybe more my advice is get premium or use a tier 6/7 tank as your money maker or get a T82 I've used that for crew training and it makes an obscene amount of silver plus with the derp gun it a lot of fun.

Weird, I pretty much never lose money on my Tiger II. I don't even have a premium account.

Are you using premium consumables and ammo regularly?

I usually run my jpanther2 w/128 to supplement my king tigers silver consumption all while gaining a bit more ground on my jagd tiger. I also run a t34 or panther. Basically tanks I know I will usually come out with 20+k on with a decent round.

You get pretty much nothing for kills(it,s not nothing, but it's so damned small to be effectively useless).  DAMAGE is what you want, NOT kills.  Don't get me wrong, kill something shooting at you if no one else is around to shoot it, but don't waste a $1000 shell to do 20 points of damage if someone else is around about to shoot him.

Shoot and DAMAGE HIGHER tier tanks that you know you can penetrate.  Also, don't shoot barely there shot.   ie, if you only have a sliver showing, reposition or wait.

It could be worse, every miss or non-penetration in my SU-152 costs me 6000 in silver because I run HEAT ammo at the moment, seriously thinking about changing back to a mix of HE and AP with only a couple HEAT.

I LOVE MY TIGER ROYAL With Cheese, BEST TIER 8 Heavy Tank cause I like Sniping and the Russian Heavy's are Close Up Tanks & I'm not a Total Wallet Warrior but I can afford the Ammo. I Love using this Beast and it's Long 105 cm Cannon plus I Dig moving the Chassis into the Diamond Shape while the Turret stay's still. 

Wish the Damned T-32 had a Gun like that on it but I FINALLY reached the M-103 and about to get the 1st Package cause I hate Rolling with Stock Anything cause it's just not Fun. The Stock TIGER II is Garbage. 

It'd have had a E-75 BUT I like to play as many HEAVY'S and TD's as I can above Tier IV-V but I told myself after the BETA I would go US Heavy Tanks but still COULD Not Resist getting this Monster Beast, I LOVE it with my Lowe Crew installed with their 6 Perks/Skills. Only the T-29 has a Bigger place in My Heart.

How to make silver...

  1. Get Premium.  That will pretty well solve your silver problems.
  2. Buy a premium tank.  They make more money than regular, elite tanks.  I got a Lion recently with a bunch of Bing Rewards certificates, and on a good match, I'll make 150,000 silver with it.
  3. Find a tank you're good with and play it just to make money.  I've kept my Panther and Tiger around for a while for just that purpose.  Ammo cost on the Tiger is about 1/4th that of the King Tiger.  Panther's is super cheap.  Artillery can be decent money-makers, as their repair cost is usually low.

Agreed, I make BANK with my LION and my T-29 which I'll never sell, also my J.G. 8.8. CM though not as much lately, I have my Panzer 5/4 but that's more for a Crew Trainer and get a Bunch of Kill's but it bring in Cash. Even the SUPER PERSHING and my DICKER MAX bring in a Good amount of Money as well.

I buy always premium, if not it will take forever to get a nice tank collection. Tiger II makes me good money.
