Literally only 1 SCQ has shot me with AP. The rest of them spam full APCR :coin:

Better play soft tanks then when it does not matter what you get shot with.

Give me 1 reason why you would shoot AP with the SC? If you cant, there is your answer.

if they would have penned you with AP anyway it makes no difference what they shot you with, you'd have taken dmg anyway., If they needed APCR to pen you then they choose correct...jog on son.

If you want to ruin S Conqs day, educate people about their weakspots whenever you can. Like that you can penetrate its gun mantlet when its not looking directly at you.

Why would you spam only APCR with any tank?

I know. I was just surprised by how much it is spammed. Haven't encountered this much gold ammo incoming in a long time.

Aiming for weakspots is a fun part of the game?

So play light tanks and give them your broadside then when they hit you with their APCR it'll over-penetrate and you'll take minimal damage. :great:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, wait ... that might be Warboats ... :unsure:

 

 

 

In which case, dive to gain speed and try to shake them through evasive manoeuvres while dragging them towards your AA. :great:

Why APCR? 

 

Better Penetration means easier to pen.

Better shell velocity means it is easier to hit on range.

 

If you have the credits, there is no reason to shoot AP over APCR.

Because shooting full gold is boring. ^^ I dont play the game just to farm damage.

I´m not sure why that tone would be justified, but if you´re having a bad day, go beat a pillow and don´t come on to me.

If I have to. ^^ On topic though, when you shoot full gold some aspects of the game get so easy. More often than not you can go hulldown somewhere and just farm the living hell out of other hulldown tanks. I dont like this playstyle, so I try to avoid shooting gold if I can. Doesnt mean I dont shoot any if I dont have any choice, though.

I agree. 

And I rarely shoot prem ammo myself, though always on Jap heavies, mostly because I think premium ammo is a stupid mechanic. Having a ammo choice that is just superior is rather stupid.
