People feel free to call me a whinge but ever since the update to allow gold shells for credits has completely killed the games learning curve of finding weak spots etc. Every game you go in  14/15 players will be spamming gold just because its easy. What's the actual point of having your defensive mechanics if most of the time they're rendered useless?

 

I personally would love to see a restriction on gold shells to being strongholds/clan wars so people actually have to work for their kills and advancements in tanks but that wont happen because its too much of a money sink.

The problem is not that you can buy them for silver,

the problem is that their percentage in total ammo loadout is not restricted.

I see what you're saying. The problem has always existed but has gotten worse since the credit update.

I wonder if these people realize that by saying "gold takes all skill out of the game" they say "penning tanks is the only skill in this game", which basically means: "Look at me, I'm a bad player! Praise me!"

Pretty much means having weak spots on a tank is pointless because i can click one button load heat and spam it for easy pen. At least has a constructive argument if you're going to defend it.

You cannot expect a constructive response from gold ammo addicts.

Its just a fee for better RNG. And it's also why there will never be +/-1MM. They allow it for credits, make it better, so more people are tempted to use it, doing that they get less credits from battles, by design . Some people then give up and pay up for premium account so they get even or buy premium tanks to support it. Same with food use, most will use it for improved performance, but it's not cheap, for a reason. Simple business model that wants you to break and pay up (prem tanks, time), so you have easier progress.

I'd think limiting to 35% of gold ammo in your loadout would be great. In other words, limited gold ammo.

When they could only be bought for Gold....then they were pay to win. But back then........whiners made WG change to make it fair so they could shoot Gold too........still you whine about P2W. :rolleyes:

Sure, great fix. I'll just play E100 and carry some 17 premium rounds(13k+ potential damage), or my Maus while carrying around 20(10k potential damage), being able to spam gold 95% of the time.

I never once whined back then about it as I myself used it for clan wars but that was it, never in generic MM.

I agree, they should only be paid for with gold. At the very least, make it so each tank is limited to 30% gold ammo. Nothing is stopping someone buying a Lowe 1 day prem and spamming gold ammo only and still make profit. Angling armor etc does nothing anymore with the ease of access to gold ammo.

Sometimes though, the gold is 100% required. Like this...
