Remove premium ammo completely. Lets see who knows to play and who don't. Or put a price tag of 50 gold per shell (20.000 credits).

Try to play random battle in Maus. The moment you are spotted all enemy players are loading one of few gold shells they have. You just made a Maus to be a gold magnet.

Personaly i dont use premium ammo, my tanks are fine without it, while i use tier 7-8 tanks i got decent penetration with normal ammo, due to this i dont even think tanks need nerfs because of premium ammo... also even with premium ammo here chance to ricochet or lack of penetration, this game is far wayay form real tanks simulator and meny combat and results in battle is depend luck, and premium ammo wont change this.

Wait, what? They plan to nerf tanks that as the Q&A person in the video said, were balanced before premium ammo and now are overperforming? Would that make them really bad without premium ammo? Are they really that thick or just plain greedy?

just ad the Tiger speed for 100 % accurate thats all i want to say  >>>38 km/h ,+ reloadin speed is faster too ,, check the history u know then ;),  nice game anyway when playing under tier VII ,,, not too much mixed tanks in ww2 - modern


hope those premium ammos not take too big part of the game ,allready there is lot of cheaters who using mods or those kind of crap because without those they are poor players , dong go like a Zynga did in mafia ,gettin greedy u got money anyway from this game im sure i am premium user too and spend some euros too ,but if balance is going to change too much ,maybe its better keep the money safe then

i say just scrap the scouting bussiness, it's just not fair for those who like to play them, high tier medium tanks already have more than enough mobility to scout on their own, it's ok when it's 2 tiers above, anything else it's juts pointless, one lucky shot and i'm dead, not to mention that except a20 and leopard all other "scouts" don't have enough top speeds to safely avoid death

+1
he even said that they might remove the gold ammo for credits feature, but what happens to the "rebalanced" tanks then???
from what i understood, gold ammo for credits was added for tournaments and esports, so they should just remove it for randoms

Gold ammo out of random games!

Or better (for both sides) - give us an option to exclude games where player(s) with gold ammo is(are) participating.

On "we increased the battle timer for assault so Slow tanks like Maus and T95 can.. bargh" this only means that they will die last and alone.

They should make that u can choose what maps u want to play! There are a lot of good reasons why to implement this feature, u all know them so that is why im not going to write them, and it will take to long.

Oh and PS: Every thing that Cobra 6 said!!! +1

I hardly think that balancing the game
with premiumammo as the baseline is fair to any
of the players.

If WG do this they will loose players, even the dedicated
, veteran players I think will stop playing.

At least I will.

Let me get this straight:

Before the new update the game and vehicles were balanced very well, it was working fine and premium ammo was pretty rare in randoms. Now with the new update premium ammo is much more common, all the balancing is completely unhinged and tank relying on heavy armour lost their strong point. All this just for making it easier for "professional"  players to enter in competitions even though this is just a small factor of all games played? (the majority of battles is still randoms).

So now you'll see if particular vehicles perform better with gold ammo (being OP as you said) and nerf them accordingly if this happens (thereby nerfing EVERYTHING, or just the gold penetration?) effectively adepting the game more to premium ammo instead of the regular AP? This will then even further break the game for normal (random) players that don't run premium ammo.

If you must, make gold ammo affordable for credits within the competitive match servers of WoT and not also in randoms. Leave randoms as a domain for the free players where you don't actually sell power (ammo), just premium accounts and premium tanks.

First making more players hooked on gold shells and then increasing their price again so they'll start buying them with gold might be a good idea on paper to make more money (which of course is the end goal of this measure as you don't give a toss about our opinion) but it will utterly destroy the careful balancing and work that has gone into this game over the last 2 years.  And for what? A bit of short term gain? Smart thinking.....*cough*

------

Why does a developer that supposedly is a professional body make decisions a simple 5 year old can see isn't going to work and only creates more trouble than solutions? It's quite baffling to be honest.

Looking at this forum and the polls on this subject the large majority is actually against it for various reasons whether that be lack of skill in using it, prices and or new imbalances. They might be valid, they might not, but these players are the community on which this whole game thrives. If the majority disagrees with a choice a good developer would listen. You are not seriously going to tell me WG that you are not already making more than enough profit off of premium accounts and vehicles. Stop using these silly EA tactics, we all see and saw what it did to their reputation.

Use gold ammo in matches it's meant for, competitions and leave it out of the every-day games played in randoms. It has no place there as the regular ammo types have been working perfectly fine for 2+ years now.
