whats the deal with the T92 ammo price?

 

it already has bad pen but when u want/need to use gold u get a lousy pen increase for 5600!!!!!!! credits !!!!!!!!!!   wtf is with that?  how is this price made up?

 

the pen increase and the price make it stupid for anyone to use gold ammo in the T92.   Thats not wg p2w model?  wg promotes p2w ammo so why this crazy stupid price?

Yeah the premium ammo price needs to be brought down to competitive levels for tier 8 light tanks, around 4400cr per shot and not 5600cr.

 

Sure the profitability of this vehicle is pretty high if you only have to shoot regular APCR but we all know that in World of Corridors and World of Heavy Tanks this is not a realistic situation/assessment so the ammo cost, also for the premium ammo, needs to be balanced properly.

Oh, come on. Even 4400cr is too much. That's comparable to the Russian 122mm caliber / 217mm penetration / 390 damage shells (4800cr).

 

The Brits get 239mm pen, 150 damage APCR rounds on the 17-pounder for 3200cr. That's a far better round. Not only 29mm more pen, it's also got better shell velocity (1105 vs 975). And it's APCR instead of HEAT, so spaced armour and tracks absorb the shells less often.

I bought it the second time it was on sale (ie. yesterday).

 

The fail to pen with the standard ammo gets boring really quickly - even at close range. I only bought it because they were supposed to have fixed the engine problems, but my engine was getting knocked out/set on fire all the time.

increasing the hitpoints of something wont fix anything. making the module actually smaller might have.. i mean if they can move the 112 gas tank fron the lower plate somewhere else. why cant they fix this?

Ammo price in that tank is a "IQ vs try hardiness" test...

Sad part is: I saw two players so far spamming full gold in it :ohmy:

Wouldent call it tryhard, id say they did the right thing depending on the matchup, 175pen has no place in tier 10

Given how about any scout in tier 8+ shoots 100% premium-rounds these days (given that i am driving allmost only Scorp G and Lorr40 for creditfarming there is no need whatsoever - as matter of fact i appreciate getting HEAT/premium-APCR at me becouse that means no HE) the prices for it should be increased by ~50%.

increasing the prices causes a worse problem. weak tanks get more gimped and strong pen tanks never need to use it.

Price needs to be adjusted by the difference between standard and premium pen and the less +MM you have the more expensive it should be meaning tier 8 is the last one wthout a modifier and tier 9 and 10 get increased price. I see a lot of players spam premium ammo at -1 -2 tiers because it doesn't have a drawback.

Who's even shooting premium ammo with T92? 210 HEAT isn't all that much better than 175 APCR, you lose shell speed, normalization and the overmatch potential(there isn't much, but still) for penetration that still won't pen anything that has armor. The only times it's worth loading is when you're dealing with a boxy tank like E100 turret side or like the boobs of O-Ho.

I like T92. But the shell price is indeed retarded, even with the regular ammo. At least the gun is like a laser pointer.

 

Why the eff does FV4005 and death star HESH ammo cost only 8k a piece??? It literally makes no sense.
