When people face stronger tanks most tend to go to premium ammo. In my opinion it is a waste of money and unfair in gameplay.
So vote on what you think.

Everyone can use it, so I fail to see whats unfair about it. Most of the time its not necessary to use it anyway so if anyone wants to waste credits... be my guest.

Premium ammo has no place in a competitive game like this. Tanks and guns are balanced around penetration and armour and premium rounds negate this entirely.

The gameplay itself, and the duelling, was much more fun without the premium ammo, it relied much more on skill back then.

I don't like premium munition and I rarely carry or use it. Taking someone down with regular ammo shows much greater skill and gives much more satisfaction.

I voted for no, because gold ammo being available for credits finally resulted in it's balancing. It's ok the way it is and i don't use gold ammo.

Nope, they are not. As sadly as it is, but the balance is f****** anyway and with the new and "improved" accuracy patch the guns are pretty much nowhere even near balanced. Be it balanced agaist each other or against armor. Dont missunderstand, I'm no fan of premiumammo anyway, but the balance statement is not true at the moment.

I use it and most other people use it , but i do think the game would be better balanced if it was removed completely , the Ultra high pen of some tanks with HEAT and APCR is taking away the challenge of the game , before I used think it was a decent accomplishment to take down a tank two tiers higher than me, now it just a target with more HP

My self i hate Gold Ammo but tbh if MM is throwing you agains tanks 2 tier higher than you then use of gold ammo is need. So first fix MM to be not so wide then ban gold ammo.

There is nothing wrong with 3 tiers per battle , the game would be extremely boring if it was just the same tier tanks in every game. People managed fine before the MM change last year with 4 tiers per battle and no gold ammo , if you can't remember that was KV-1s fighting IS-4s at tier 9 it was tough but it was tremendously rewarding

Well now maus is just another tank to kill instead of a challenge.

Also instead of using premium ammo just aim at weakspots.

Frustrating sometimes but most of the time challenging and fun to play. Good old times.

Voted a definite YES. The game would be miles better without prem/gold ammo

they already screwed n-tanks by applying gold ammo and tried "fixing" it by nerfing the tanks.

Than it took them about a year to realise it would probably be for the best to actualy nerf some of the ammo instead like 95% of the playerbase suggested.

Gold ammo wont be removed they want u to buy it for the obvious reasons. too late anyway.

you already have kids crying over +2 tier spread whilst they have ability to use gold ammo.expect no spread in a year or so.

I am fine with it as long as skilled players use it. It is extremely annoying when HORRIBLE players can punch straight through your gun mantle and UFP.

guns are ment to destroy stuff/ but gold also bounces - so it's not an auto-win

> I like that medium tanks are more valueable when gold is in game...

just another level of play
I support
