This has got seriously broken now. I am regularly playing games where every shell received is of the gold variety. Just pure gold rounds.

 

It renders all armour obsolete. and even tier 9's are using it on tier 7 meds... its just systemic of the game atm.

Weird. I see some tryhards spam it but those are rare cases.

Totaly agree with you, no skill involved in this game anymore, just gold spam of shells.

 

The good old days you had to aim for weak spots and know the weak spots of your tank and the enemies. BUT now just shoot with gold and if you hit you pen.

 

RUINED the game.......but it makes MILLIONS for the devs so they dont care and wont change it.

I really want to play the game you played before. Because the gold meta has been a thing for years, and has always been this high.

And how do you suggest they change it? Make it gold only again? So it's 100% pay 2 win? or remove it. So only premium tanks keep it? It's not as easy as most want it to be either when you have moved the meta and game the way you have done.

would you mind explaining to me why they make millions when people spam gold? You do know that you can buy them for credits?

Because you would need either premium time or premium tanks to bring in the credits to be able to afford spamming gold normally. Not so much during this event though.

Here we go again.  :bajan::popcorn:

 

yes lets remove it but because we dont want the super heavies to dominate the game more than they already do lets give every tank a 150mm derp gun that fires HE. 

 

lets see what that does for the game........:facepalm:

Well, to be fair, I did notice quite a lot of clans going all-out on gold in skirmishes,

even when it's downright pointless. Fine if it's a province battle, but doing that on

a daily skirmishes is rather mental. I mean, what's the point of spamming gold on

light tanks at point-blank range, maybe that extra penetration helps damaging

extra modules better?

no you don't need either of those....a low tier farming tank is enough. Unless you really "spam" it, like you don't even use normal ammo, If you use gold only when you need it and you actually do damage, you should be alright even without a prem account. I won't deny that WG profits in some sort when people are using gold ammo, but that they make millions just because some people spam it, is kinda ridiculous..

It effectively lowers RNG and accuracy variations. That's one reason for using it in that circumstance or when trying to mark tanks. 

I suppose the other benefit is specific to HEAT which is no drop off in penetration over distance

Even assuming the theory that you have to have a premium account, etc, to be competitive, it is a for profit company, not an 'entertainment for you' charity. They are not just morally justified in making a profit, but are actually legally obligated to do their best to do so.

Shell velocity and simplicity. Why not use premium ammo.

I'm busy playing 10,9 and 7 and really haven't seen anymore than i expect. Anyway gold isn't the way to greatness, enlightenment skill is....hmm where do i get the feeling this has been discussed before

Still waiting for the day I'll be shot with silver by an unicum on the enemy team regardless of what tank I am in. 

But seriously, the gold spam is getting ridiculous.
