Won't happen, because it would shame certain players into modifying their habits, and ultimately cost WG money, but some sort of "perentage likelihood to fire gold" next to a player's name at loadin would be amusing. And also of some tactical use to those who are into that sort of thing. The Council of Unicums could then get together in their top secret Statcave and determine an acceptable level. 

See that guy calling everyone a noob or a tomato in comments? Look at his 92% GS number, and then just laugh in his tryhard wannabe face.  WG would have all the numbers to hand!

No. But I do get frustrated by players who like to flaunt their stats, when no one can see how those stats were actually achieved.

It's all hypothetical of course, but it seems to me that the only players who would lobby against such a thing are those who have massaged their precious wn8 predominantly by being prepared to spend more real money than most.
Anyway, back to defrosting the freezer.

I love it when people try to correlate 'gold' usage with player stats.  When they do, I just link them to threads like this:

Why? I earn my credits in game surely you're not saying I can't spend them how I want are you? do you use automatic fire extinguisher or med kits on none of your tanks because that's basically the same thing?

I'm sitting on just under 6 million with no equipment to buy and no tanks I want to grind to yet.

 

Credits are no object, so why shouldn't I load credits bought gold rounds? Besides I enjoy shooting lightly armoured under tiered stuff with gold, I can taste their salt as they explode.

Let me guess. You are one of those that run mostly AP on your Excelsior. And still spams a 91 average pen round on the AT-2's hatch in hopes of a pen when you are a one shot hit for it?

 

I'm not afraid to say it. I run a 50/50 load on my Excelsior. As on some tanks, I would rather spam it and pen something. Vs just wasting 20 rounds on targets I can't pen even with a 25% high roll. I'm not a afraid to press 2 if it means I will win my 1 on 1 vs a higher tier with more armor then I have AP pen, even on the cupola. Unless you are saying it's better to bounce it constantly and lose. So you can remain "pure".

Bad players spam it as much as good players do. Unless you can show me stats that contradicts that. As "skill" is not just about what comes out of your barrel. As spamming 100% gold ammo don't help if your map awareness is below zero to name one. As it's not about how much damage you do. It's where you do it, and to whom more so then not. As Zeven says... know what you are afraid of.

Difference between decent players and egits are we know when to spam it and when not to.

It would say 100% next to every Dinger. 

 

Why have you got a vendetta against gold ammo?

 

If it's sooooooo magical and sooooooo devastating and sooooooo game breaking and requires sooooooo little skill to get sooooooo great stats, then why don't you use it too? Probably because you're sooooooo broke and sooooooo salty.

 

Cry elsewhere Princess.

Scenario:

AP shell loaded.

Heavily armoured tank appearing

I bounce

I load APCR

Heavily armoured tank disappears

Paper armoured light appears

I penetrate light tank

I switch to AP

Paper armoured tank disappears and heavily armoured tank comes back on the scene

I bounce and switch to APCR

Paper light takes spot over from heavily armoured tank again

and you guessed it right... I penetrate

 

After the battle I get an angry light tank driver calling me a gold noob (which as a Dinger I'm proud off, but that's besides the point).

 

Anyway, a bit off topic... but to be on topic... who cares how much gold they're shooting. Either they're smart to switch to gold, or are wasting credits by doing so.

Play light tanks and ignore the enemy shell types completely, unless HE which is just downright filthy. ;)

I probably wouldn't care about such metric. For me it would show something under 1% anyway since I only use it when I need it and I hardly ever do. Today I had to punch holes 2 times into E100 turret, but other than that I didn't fire a single prem ammo.

I don't think the number would be significantly higher for most players anyway. Otherwise it would just be a matter of choosing to fight some armored monsters on their strong ground. Which is when I tap "2" quite quickly myself, too.

less than 1% yeah right ok, anyone can activate their hit logger in the game settings and I get hit by gold at least 7 or 8 times out of every 10 rounds fired at me. 

 

Oh and I don't cry on forums about it :bajan:
