Go to the "inventory" (click on your name on the left top corner, the inventory), and then sell all modules that are stockpiled there.

Often overlooked, but it can make quite a difference! Also: playing PvP (Random, Ranked, Clan, Scenario's (which is PvE, but quite difficult)) yields more XP & credits than PvE (Co-Op).

Also: find a tier at which you can consistently do well in, and play several games (PvP) at that tier in a ship that you like - that should generate a fair bit of silver, especially if you can manage without premium consumables (more likely at lower tiers).

Premium account does make a huge positive difference to silver earnings though, if you don't mind giving WG money.

If you've been doing the RN DD missions, you should be able to get Cossack for cheap at the end - she's a good silver earner too, once you've got the hang of her (assuming you're comfortable with T8 MM - you may need a few hundred more battles though). Also, on the subject of those missions, try and bag either Gallant or Warspite - premium ships are one of the most effective ways of earning silver, provided you perform okay with them.

Oh, you can also sell any spare cammo you have kicking around too - that'll generate a few thousand too.

 

(On the subject of cammo, it's also worth putting permoflage on T6+ ships that are keepers, although they mostly cost doubloons)

Get a good premium battleship of middling to higher tier. Learn how to survive and do decent damage. Max out the captain as quickly as possible (i.e. don't play a lot of anything else until he is maxed out.)

 

Only spend money on a premium account once there is a decent discount, like when they sold a year's worth for 60 Euros last year.

 

The cheapest way should currently be to just play the Royal Navy Arc until you have enough sovereigns for a Warspite. Then play some more and exchange the sovereigns for the Bert Dunkirk commander. Put him on your highest tier British silver BB and play him on that one and Warspite every day at least until the first daily win (for the bonus). Play him on any RN DDs you might have, for as long as they retain their premium status.

 

Similarly, you could get an Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya for coal from the Arsenal, but it might be a better idea to spend the coal on things you can't get for money/doubloons instead, and just spend the money in the premium shop. Or use doubloons, especially if you got the 4K bonus doubloons last weekend for purchases in excess of 40 Euros in the Premium shop. As you can see from my little spreadsheet, she is a few Euros cheaper if you buy enough doubloons at once.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GdW79l1hAu7cDeP6R-zKDkR6F6M2Jjv0YJLdUULC-hE/edit#gid=1685859868

 

Another good alternative would be Nelson if you have the free XP or are willing to spend some money for doubloon conversion, but you should wait until the next discount when you get 35 Free XP per doubloon instead of just 25.

 

Texas is cheap but desperately powercrept. However, until the CV rework at least, her AA is valuable in many games.

 

The main thing to consider when buying premium ships, besides having fun playing them, is how well they fit into your captain training schemes for the lines you are currently grinding, because you can just swap the commander without retraining for gold, and any retraining penalty doesn't apply on the premium ship.

 

Also try to stay current on any goodies available through events, campaigns and combat missions, and spot ways to quickly farm them. To that end, definitely get at least one of the "dumb" Tier V aircraft carriers.
