The game lets you premium rounds for gold or credits. Many people seem to have a mod or whatever that lets them see when premium round is used, and send chat messages saying something like 'Gold Noob' when they get hit by a premium round. (Especially when they get killed.)

I guess you've seen these messages in chat. There seem to be many more of these messages now. 

 

So; do these messages have any affect on whether you carry/use gold or not?

Well with these mods what really amuses me is when im driving a T10 med or the cent Mk7 which all use APCR as standard ammo and then the enemy starts crying about me being a gold noob :teethhappy:

 

And no, im not using any less "gold" ammo because of these comments in chat.

I've often been thrown that, especially by people who died from my shots. Best part is, it's not really true, since I rarely use gold (unless I'm facing tanks 3 tiers above me, in which case no one's complaining). I also get accused for hacking very often. Goes off to show that people need something to excuse their untimely death with and that something is never themselves not doing their best. If it affects me? Sure! Makes me giggle, which is a good thing :3

I've had it where I've been using standard AP Ammo and someone has claimed I've used gold.

I only fire gold ammo. I pay with gold too as I have a disposable income and like the pay 2 win model. It's fun

I shout gold noob, even at the Bat chats and M48s.. :trollface:

(there is a reason... a "proper" reason to say it..)

 

...and if anyone shouts it to me when I'm firing gold, I simply reply "shush peasant"..

 

As for how much I use it?

The tanks I am currently playing all carry a few, unfortunately some of them can't carry much ammo in total and so I often end up running out of everything, gold, HE, whatever...

It makes it look like I use a lot of gold, I simply use a lot of ammo...

Statpadders will always spam gold and some even use more because of these messages. L2P and stop using an unnecessary crutch and people will stop saying it.

i couldn't care less with what people are shooting at me, but the amount of idiots that think that APCR is premium ammo on high tier mediums is baffling.

and since when do i care what the enemy is crying about? the sooner they die the better.

I use gold ammo occasionally in some of my Tier 4 tanks, such as the DW2 and Hetzer (I refuse to use its "derp gun")  - comes in handy when you're playing against T6s. Never have more than 10 rounds at any one time though and use regular ammo against same or lower tier opponents.

I have seen even tanks like elc amx to cry about "gold noob", do they even know that they would be penetrated even with normal ap ammo? If somebody wants to spend his silver on gold ammo, so be it.

when i feel like trolling ill continue shooting gold at the paper tanks that cry about me shooting gold at them even if the first shell was preloaded for another tank that would need to be shot with gold in order to penetrate.

I think 99% of the time the complainers are just frustrated about their own death, failure or the loss of the battle in general. My attitude on premium rounds is the same as with the premium consumables, camo, heck even tanks and equipment themselves: cant afford them yourself? Too bad. I play to win. Only tools I dont use are certain mods that I think provide unfair advantages otherwise unavailable.

 

I think we could do with a slight, say 10%, damage decrease for premium APCR though. HEAT and HESH I think are OK, they are unreliable enough already, its just the APCR that has in practice no downsides at all compared to AP.

Strangely enough, although I do carry a few gold rounds in some tanks, I rarely use them, but without exception the only times I've been moaned at for using gold is when I haven't actually been using it.:rolleyes:
