The game has been about for over 7 years and ive only played in the last 3 years of that...so ive never known a time where you have to pay actual gold for prem ammo.

 

Why are people still moaning about premium ammo being fired at them? Do you really expect to drive that super heavy and people not fire it? are you that naive? Why would someone continualy shoot you if they cant penetrate you? Now that arty doesnt one shot you, you actually want it so prem ammo cant damage you aswell ffs!!!! Talk about wanting an easy ride in this game.

 

Then we get the people who moan at being hit by prem rounds when none prem will penetrate them, why are you moaning? You would be penentrated anyway regardless, IT DOESNT MATTER!!!!!

Sometimes you can use this to your advantage if you think fast enough, and if its HEAT being fired at you. Example, Just yesterday i was playing in that 113 and it was near the end of a game and i noticed a batchat was coming to assasinate me, predicting he would fire HEAT (near the end of the game so he might only have his last clip of prem) i gave him my tracks, he emptied the clip into my tracks and they absorbed every shot. Now im not saying this would work everytime, far from it, but in sure you get my point.

 

Come on guys its 2017, Its really time to get over the whole "GOLD" bullcrap, you know that if you are going to select that Maus, or Type 5, people are going to spank prem at you, deal with it!!! I know i use it when and where needed, doesnt mean i spam it.

Yes, you people of 2017. Stop moaning about broken things.
Actually, we should start to call premammo "anti-superheavy-ammo", because those are totally the only tanks it gets used against.



Seriously... what a stupid thread.

I respect my enemy. Therefore I shoot them with only the best kind of ammo available.

My big issue with gold rounds isn't really people firing them at me, it's feeling that in many tanks/matchups I have no choice but to use them whether I want too or not.  I.E the IS-6 is basically spam gold or go home, and even then it will usually bounce off the weak spots of same tier tanks at point blank range lol.

 

I still think gold ammo should have it's damage reduced by the same percentage it's pen is increased over the tanks standard round.

Grinding T54E1:

1. Game start countdown press 2-2

2. Unload a clip at a first target you meet, preferably a LT cause all pen :trollface: 

3. Think what to load next.

My biggest problem with gold ammo is that meds penetrate my E100 turret face even when you over angle turret (it doesn't matter) and imo they shouldn't be able to do it.

Seriously ... What a stupid comment.

 

I'm with you Knight_Zao, people should get over themselves.  It's part of the game, part of the economy and part of the balance.

It's like moaning that light tanks drive too fast and spot too much.

 

I try to limit the gold I fire but only because I make more silver if I don't fire it.  It's always a nice consolation after I've died to see that a load of gold was spent getting rid of me.

 

And before you reply with a statement that starts with "You do realise that ...", you should realise that "gold" is quicker to type than "premium ammo" (plus I like annoying the pedants that get annoyed by such trivia).

I remember when I flanked a Maus in my Emil 1, fired three standard shells at its side, perpendicular to it's armor, close to 90 degrees and penned two out of three. That's with 217mm average pen at what's supposed to be a 185mm plate. He wasn't even interested in looking at me, he knew his tank is OP. After he killed my allied he turned to me and I died very soon after that.


Yesterday I drove my Obj 416 and found a Maus that was angling. 2-2, loaded the 320 pen HEAT, or the nerf-armor-ammo, and filled him with holes. The same when I was grinding the Foch and meeting a Type 4/5 Heavy. Standard 257 pen shells ineffective ? No problem, 2-2, 330 pen sheels into the belly, shoulders, turret face and that's it.
And I'll do it every day of the week for each absurd tank that I meet. It's my credits I'm throwing down range, not yours.

It is a broken thing though. While prem ammo is needed to deal with some tiers while being at the bottom. I think that prem ammo should have only 75% of the alpha or the regular shell.

But will that not buff super heavies? If your only chance to pen him is with prem ammo (lets say you can't flank him) then you will do less damage and therefore take 25% longer to kill him? That seems like a buff to the tanks people want to nerf.

Premium ammo is a stupid mechanic. There is no reason to stop whining about it until it gets changed into a non-stupid mechanic.

T-50-2 says hi. He also wants you to google how proper gamebalance works before you talk about it again.

Anything what gives superior benefits by spending significant more credits per game equals p2w.

Gold ammo has much more pen in general. It is not a win button, but opens a lot more opportunities to be usefull without changing position.

The same can be said for food consumables. +10% for crew is a huge increase for overall stats. Basicly you are handicapping yourself without food.
