Premium ammunition is currently only available in exchange for gold. In the upcoming Version 8.1, we are going test out a major change in which you will be able to purchase premium ammo for credits! More details here.

Stupid, stupid, STUPID idea! Premium ammo has never had any place outside of CW anyway.

This one decision - by itself - has the potential to seriously ruin the game for the vast majority of players. Whose idea was this, exactly? Are you hell-bent on ruining this game or something?

Great news! ;) For people in Clan Wars. But on others, I guess not good in random battles. And hell yeah, that's an expensive round... 400 Gold... Creepy Pasta

This is bad news for Random battles and possibly Tank Companies!!!
It will negate the advantages of armour and we will all end up camping and sniping eachother!!!!

This news is only great for players who can not play well! :-(

This is a terrible idea. Why not just limit premium ammo to clan wars only? Then this would work, otherwise, why not just remove premium ammo? Armor seems to not matter whatsoever ingame now, and this is ruining the game, the overinflated penetration vale of guns compared with armor.

This punishes a lot of players for being good at the game, and makes it rewardable to just be bad at the game.

bad idea, 1) WG will lose money 2) Many tanks will require a nerf such as french who already have high penetration and artillery - dont do this if you dont want to remake 50% of tanks... If this goes online - tanks will get nerfed....

Not a big fan of it, but I'll give it a look (not going to use it myself).

Very good idea. "But" it shall have a bit lowered pen.
The only "but", because good aiming and positioning will be not anymore important skill.

Quote article:- "So if you are already accustomed to buying premium ammo with gold, you just can keep doing so, or use your precious gold for other purposes, such as mounting camouflage or buying premium tanks."

Doing away with premium ammo will do the same thing but the bonus is.... it will leave armour values intact. :Smile_sceptic:

Every time I want to give another chance to this game thinking they will get smart soon enough, WG hits me with a mallet in the face with their new features.

super pershing:

258 pen instead of 170
sustained by credit earning potential

get ready for 0k beginners with tier 10 pen on tier 8 tanks, stomping your non premium tier 8 in the ground

You really think, that people will use those credit premium regularly? A premium round will cost more than 4000 credits for higher tiers... how long do you want to farm credits, if you want to use them in randoms regularly?

And u will fire gold ammo with ur non premium tier 8 also, so that makes u equal.
And why would someone who installed game yesterday be better than someone with 8k games?

you dont need to farm if you just drive premium tanks and skip the rest
