I don't know if this has been suggested already

 

But I think there should be a limit of 20% gold ammo on a tank, maybe the percentage could be adjusted

For example, if a tank carries 60 rounds of ammunition, it can only carry 12 rounds of gold ammo

If a tank has 25 rounds of ammunition, it can only carry 5 rounds of gold ammo etc

 

Let me know your opinions on this

Never been suggested, very original. WG should actually award you with gold for that suggestion.

My Maus and my Type 5 approve of it too, so it's a win-win.

Hmm, as Einstein once said:
Limit gold ammunition on tanks to a certain percentage and time will be relative.

Gold ammo would be fine if WG reduced the damage they do by the same percentage the penetration was increased.

You will never now the joys of tracking someone for an entire clip in the TVP and I feel an empathetic sadness for that. Though I do see you've joined the stug 4 badge masterrace.

Ive got absolutely no problem with gold ammo. I'd rather face a tank fully loaded with gold ammo than some arty way across the other side of the map, that i'll probably not get to see or shoot at,  thats hiding in the bushes like they're waiting on the next primary school kid to walk past.

I never use gold ammo... And I won't. I think that it's ruining the game making effectively a pay to win... So... I'm not touching it.

For me, ammo's first quality is availability. I believe in recon by fire... When I can't see the enemy, I light up the positions he could be hiding in.

Gold ammo, with it's price, can also make you not fire when you have a small chance of hitting... You will wait for the right time to fire. So you will never land those miracle hits we land from time to time on a moving target etc...

So... In a few words, yeah, gold ammo is ruining the game giving an unfair advantage to the gold ammo user.

Armor is obsolete when facing gold ammo. In fact, it's really making some tanks obsolete, as the armor becomes a trap, slowing you down for the kill...

Really, the people supporting gold ammo are total traitors for me.

My IS-6 with its 175mm of average penetration is a joke now. When you get face to face with a T8 heavy tank or just another IS-6... You will have issues and you will require the help of friendlies with better positions or guns to do your job.

That's why I play World of Warships... No gold ammo... Pure skills... A real pleasure. I bought a few ships on WOWS... To support the game. WoT will get no support from me as long as they give wallet players an advantage over me.

Yeah, prem really makes that Type 5 obsolete. I wish armour mattered more...

 

Oh and I don't know what kind of ammo are you talking about but I buy mine for credits.

I'm sure lots of things could work, but ultimately it's all about the player working at getting better in their own gameplay, not wanting the rules and the aspirational balance of WoT dumbed down to avoid that work. I know it isn't fashionable anymore for schools to teach competitiveness, everybody gets a prize these days, but in WoT it is 'old school', you strive for something and you get rewarded when you succeed. So you earn credits by winning games, you spend those credits on Premium ammo that helps you win games. It is a circle of success, a very neat concept if you think about it.


 

I do not buy any Premium ammo for Gold, it is all bought with credits, some tanks earn more than others, and even if I can't win as many games as some people I do like to think I know which tanks to go to that earn credits, but it's an easy skill to pick up as long as you pay attention, but yes I know, it's more work to tax the brain.

No , it must be zero gold, gold rounds only made to have some profit. And we discuss gameplay here. Idk why those who use it not suggesting to create pay to win section in forums to disscuss how they outplay each other with 2 button.
