Q: How are the credits I receive from battles calculated?
A: Credit calculation in the game.

Credits are awarded for participating in battle and battle performance (damage inflicted in HP)

Payment for battle

Payment for battle – guaranteed amount of credits, independent of the tank’s performance in battle. Payment is proportional to the tank tier (essentially its worth in battle)

Payment for battle consists of: X * tank_tier for defeat or a tie, and 1.85X * tank_tier for victory.

Payment for inflicting damage to the enemy

For every point of damage inflicted the tank receives Y credits, independent of the tier.
For every tier the target is higher than the player, the player receives bonus of 0.1Y credits.
Damage inflicted by fire is counted towards the player who set the fire. In case of ammo rack explosion or other damage by initial fire all damage is counted towards the player who set it.

Damage is counted if inflicted on the enemy. Damage by friendly fire is not counted. Unintentional kills (frag) are not individually counted towards the payment.

If shooting a target spotted by another – 0.5Y credits for damage. If the enemy is damaged by another teammate when spotted by the player, then the player receives up to 0.5Y credits for damage.

Payment for spotting

For all initial spotting of the enemy tanks the player receives Z credits, for SPG – 2 * Z.

Payment for base capture

Base capture is payed out with a certain sum of credits. Payment is independent of the number of tanks and their tiers – everyone receives the payment equally. Interrupted capture and the interruption of a capture does not warrant a payment.

Balance coefficient

It is a factor for individual setting of tank profitability. Payment for all vehicles, except premium, is multiplied by the coefficient W.
The given coefficient for premium vehicles is higher.

Influence of premium account on credits

For premium account credits are multiplied by 1.5

Complete destruction of the enemy team is NOT specifically awarded.

Q: I hit a tank, why didn’t it lose any life?
A: You can penetrate a tank and damage its module(s) like the Engine, the engine may absorb the damage thus not dealing damage to the tank itself.

Q: What is the doubled xp?
A: The first victory of the day with a given tank will give you doubled experience.

Q: What do the penetration and damage numbers mean?
A: The numbers are for different shell types available for that gun, for example AP/APCR/HE.

Q: Is a higher or lower accuracy number better?
A: Lower, the accuracy is the gun’s dispersion at 100 meter, so the less dispersion the more accurate.

Q: How do I transfer crew members from one tank to another?
A: Click on a crew member and select “Send to Barracks” then select your new tank and click on an empty crew slot and select the crew member in the garage.

– note crew members are limited to their nation and role (commander, driver, gunner, loader, radio operator)

Q: Why is my crew is red?
A: When you transfer a crew from one tank to another you have to retrain them for that new tank, otherwise they will not be able to gain more experience from battles.

Q: How do I buy a new tank?
A: Go to Store and find the tank you want (being able to use filters on the side like only showing American tanks) click on it to prompt a purchase dialog.

– note you must have the tank researched before being able to buy it, go to the Research window to see what vehicles you have researched.
