So i have to start by saying i don't usually fire gold unless its in ranked, but today i said why not, ive got 18,000,000 credits and i aint grinding any new tanks atm so ill just splash out for a bit of fun and take the 268 out for a spin and get the cobwebs of it. After a crappy first game i come across a t34 in the open and im in cover, i line up shot fire and boom it tracks him, he still in the field line up shot again and boom tracks him again, there goes 14,000 credits. At this point i put it down to my bad aiming. Next game exact same thing hapens 3 times in a row against a batchat and t54 so i start getting angry relocate and get ready for the other 268 coming along the east flank. I fire and yes the the nearly 400 pen bounces off the unangles 268. We win anyway and next game gets even worse. We are about to win so i rush in to get xp only this time its a rhm wt tier 8 that has absolutly no armour angled or unangled should'nt make a diffrence against 268 gold 400 pen. But no, i drive head first into him point blank and fire the best gold ammo in the game into his turret and it bounces?????????????????? Now i remember why i don't play this turd of a tank but wg seriously wtf 400 pen versus tier 8 with no armour. I honestly feel that this gold on this tank is wrong and does not have the pen it says it does. Thats my rant over for the day, Feel free to abuse my wn8 and tell me i should learn how to play below thx.

While the previous poster was laying it on a bit thick (to put it mildly <.< ), he does have a point. HEAT does not liked spaced (tracks, mantlets, such like) or sloped armor. 

 

How did you get to almost 26k games played without learning this I wonder?

If you'd care to post replays I could easily tell you why exactly you didn't pen those shots. As for the tracks though, HEAT is awful vs spaced armour, how can you not know that after 26k games?

Considering you have 303 standard pen with AP I don't see why you would try the HEAT lottery.

HEAT is a very specific ordinance in WoT. It's not like a high-pen APCR round, it's not multi-functional, or "spammable", as the kids say. On specific tanks at specific tiers it serves a specific purpose. To substitute that for a very reliable AP round and expect generally better results is surely a form of madness?

 

I think HomerJ said it best:

When I was a nipper, many years ago, there used to be collecting boxes for the Spastic Society outside most large shops. If I remember right a young girl with a leg brace in yellow plastic about 3 foot tall that u would drop loose change into. Wonder what happened to these....

Why would you fire heat when your gun has 303 pen ap

You have to be one of these people who think premium rounds autopen everything
