     This is a good idea .. why ?? Super unicums and very good players , they did not use gold ammo to keep the value of PR so high ... and the very weak players need to learn to play ...

So when YOU are going to learn to play?? After another 40k battles?

Not sure anyone would care, 

 

Last I looked, Claus was siting on 227,000 gold

 

After this years holiday ops, I expect even the Dingers treasury might be feeling a bit bloated ATM..

Though I shouldn't speculate, Jogga usually posts an annual return, and usually it only lasts about half a New Years Resolution anyway.

No. Make premium ammo free.

Because people like you will not be able to use it while proper wallet warriors won't care how much it costs.

I was thinking about going all prem ammo on all of my tanks, I dont have any other use for all of my extra credits anyway, no new tanks to buy...so why not, our OP guy here probably would love to see me in battle :P

Well it certainly avoids getting in trouble with the boss for pressing the wrong key in the heat of battle.

No Gameplay section without one troll topic. What's your point?

 

As all you want is to make bad players and free players more useless in the age of super heavies. Just remember that they are on your team to. Unless you are super good at carrying.

Small issue with being in a -2 tank in world of choke points.Small issue of weakspot distribution in world of japaderp. wait for it! flank it right?

 

The only solution to premium ammunition is a rework of every vehicle in the game. Its not going to happen. WG might stick a band aid on it at some point but tripling the cost of it is more like twisting the knife.

 

A slow tank in -2 MM or even -1 MM cannot always out-think or outplay bigger, harder faster opponents and in those situations going from being able to do nothing to being able to have effect is a basic need not something you should have to suffer for.

 

Tell me Jaffa what you do currently if you are driving your IS and you find yourself alone with an E75. flank it? load HE? die? even with gold ammo you will struggle to have any effect and do not tell me you should not be facing an E75... you will and do and are...

So what happens when the new player comes across a tank they cant penetrate with standard ammo? 

 

Do they just cry, post on the forum and leave the game? 

Good plan

Gold stopped becoming a debate when the Jap heavies came in and when they messed with RNG multiple times.

Wargaming needs to first properly balance armour so it has viable weakspots against standard ammo of the same tier. After that premium ammo can be completely removed altogether as it adds nothing good to the game and only screws up balancing.

It’s getting quite boring with the spam tho. The big problem isn’t meds vs heavies, it’s heavies vs heavies. The difference between trying to shoot regular ammo and going full gold is the difference between winning and losing that brawl pretty much. The result is a lot more passive or camping heavies which is detrimental to game play and not the role they should play in WoT, at least not the way they were designed. Balancing some heavies against premium ammo has made it even worse, literally forcing the hand of many as there aren’t any weak spots that regular ammo can pen, certainly not if you’re lower tier. Takes away a lot of the fun and strategy.
