I'm fairly sure WG are making enough cash from the constant release of gold tanks and lack of bothering to make more maps to maybe have a server dedicated to people who just use normal ammo. I don't use XVM and only realised recently just how many people are spamming gold ammo.

Guess it might work for T5, but matter of fact is that gold ammo is needed because of things like the Defender, VK100.01P, Maus and Type 5 Heavy.

 

A 'gold' ammo-less server would be hell on earth. The game is in need of some major readjusting before you could even talk about removing gold ammo.

I'm actually going to defend the use of g0ld and I'm just a T5/T6 player...

 

Sometimes you need it to pen the harder to chew through tanks.

 

I don't use it on everything as it's a waste of credits but it certainly has its uses.

Reroll not going so well so gotta find something to blame that isn't you eh?... must be that gold ammo. If someone needs gold ammo to pen you then they made the right choice, if they don't need gold ammo to pen you as their AP would have been fine then it makes no difference, you'd have taken the dmg either way. The problem is the amount of tanks without frontal weakspots that then require gold ammo usage.

I suppose I am a reroll in a way...my son played the game for a few years and moved on so I played his old account for a couple thousand battles then got my own. Anyway I have my answer...gold all the way :)

My Type 5 and Maus agree, make a non premium server.

 

Really, think for 10 seconds about what would happen with your suggestion.

Yeah because that was exactly the answer we gave....I look forward to your next post about hacks when failing to pen through the tracks of enemies with HEAT shells.

OP probably doesn't understand that some tanks from tier VII up fire APCR as standard...

Reported for cruelty to ( dead ) animals. 

Also to keep it OT: was in a tier 10 game with Chimeratech in his tier 8 rasha OPness and RamRaid90 and me in Ravioli. I don't know how often they got hit with it but 3 out of 5 hits on my inflated M4 was premium APCR APCR HEAT....well if they need to fire premium so be it. It just cost them more for almost nothing because they have lost the game. We somehow lucked out even though they had us pinned near our base.

Come on, don't destroy his dreams. He'd be a super unicum if not for the premium rounds he's focused with.

yup can imagine it now, servers will change names and you will have WR/WN8 for Au1 and separate for Ag1.

To be honest world of tanks would be much better if it were able to totally disregard WG servers and play on their own privately owned ones, which thet people running them could decide what tiers, what maps, what mode etc etc, like what used to happen on Day of Defeat, CS etc etc, but that will never happen.

Now that i think of it, i like the OPs idea, we need a non gold ammo server. Than i can play on the normal server without all the Edited ovdrbuffed heavys  in the game.

So, that would mean a no-gold server for each continent? Because I once played on the EU server from a hotel in East Asia and the delay makes it very awkward to play. I'm afraid you'll have to buy a lot of premium tanks for WG to agree to that.

What could possibly go wrong?  I for one would love a server just for my E100, IS7, JPE100 etc to go.  I'm sure loads of noobs grinding the Japanese heavy line would also enjoy it.

You have the philosophy a bit wrong here I think, the idea is to use the correct tool for the job so that you are efficient. I'd prefer a different ammo system as well, but just removing Gold ammo entirely simply shifts the balance problems elsewhere, as others have outlined in brief.

 

Use websites such as Tanks.gg to familiarise yourself with problem tanks, this will save you some credits but ultimately the game will present you with scenarios where not having the correct tool means you will certainly die. Is this the greatest gameplay mechanic ever? I don't think so, but it's very much the reality. Can only play the game as it exists in front of you.

Damn i didnt think about that...

If such server showed up - all the "skilled" Maus and Type 5 scum will drain there so they can very skillfully press R tree times and win.

 

WG DO IT NAO !
