As the game is right now, premium ammunition offers benefits to players with the only downside being the extra cost.

There have be debates about this, and they always seem to be focused on adding extra downsides to use of the premium ammunition.

 

But how about adding compensation to the victim? Would this make premium ammunition use more acceptable?

 

For example by giving extra amount of xp for each damage done to you by premium ammunition.

Perhaps at a ratio of 0,15 xp for each 1 hp of damage done.

Then a tank with 3000 hp would get 450 extra xp if it was killed only premium ammunition.

 

Anyway I just want to know if you would think that a form of compensation to the victim would this make premium ammunition use more acceptable?

I think this might help ease some of the pain, but I think that WG also needs to take some of the money they earn from gold ammo to fund support groups in each country where their game is available.

 

The support groups would focus on allowing victims of gold ammo to be able to share their experiences of hurt and suffering.  This, over time, will allow the healing process to begin.

 

It's will in no way fully erase the damage done by the gold ammo, but it will hopefully allow people to overcome their bad experiences.  This in turn will allow them to focus their energies on more important subjects such as the elimination of arty or nerfing OP tanks.

Inversely, you could just not read the posts about gold ammo?  It might help your blood pressure.

 

Just think about all the times women protested about being mistreated sexually and how often people just told them to just ignore it since it's a part of life and they just need to deal with it.

 

Well, as you can see from the news in the USA, their continual protesting of an unfair situation has finally paid off.  After years and years of their protests against an unfair situation they are finally being heard.

 

What does this have to do with gold ammo you say?  Well I say we need MORE gold ammo threads. We need to keep hammeeing away at the subject until WG is forced to take the complaints seriously.

 

Sure, for now they are laughing at all the gold ammo threads while driving around in their limo and drinking champagne while mocking the victims, but hopefully some day they too will be made to pay for their mistreatment of the average player.

You should be able to harvest the gold, craft that into items to make a collection which will give you a special "victim" inscription for one nation.

Nah, I would suggest to give the people that drive tanks can only be killed by premium ammo less XP so they stop driving those tonks.

How about just properly balancing armour for standard ammo and completely removing premium ammo as it adds nothing good to the game itself?

 

Good thing only 5% of the shots fired are premium ammo according to WG *cough* *cough*

Scientists refuse to perform further experiments to determine a logical scale of butt hurt.

 

- Animal testing permission has been denied as it would be too cruel

- Request for volunteers for studies haven't generated enough people to provide solid statistical data. (Although scientists are continually being pestered by testcase #86 with regards to being allowed to participate in all future studies)

 

Therefore, for now, butt hurt can not be accurately measured. It can only based on feeling.

 

After careful consideration I have determined that the OP is butthurt to the level of "cucumber".

 

This may or may not be accurate as it's not based on solid scientific data.

What a brilliant idea! Lights will have extra incentive to sui-scout! And huge bonuses to superheavies, because we all know how much they are suffering...... Brilliant!

So you want to encourage premium ammo use. Encourage japtank drivers too.. hmmm

 

On first inspection its laughable. However on second inspection I have to say its not funny at all. Be gone foul beast!

And now gold ammo use is being compared to real life rape. Your pixel tank being penetrated by gold ammo is a triviality compared to a woman being....you know where I am going with this.

 

You are at a disadvantage to those wealthier than you. A valuable life lesson learned, stop whining and thank WG for the free education.

Dude are you mad?

A sensate and ponderate change to improve the game?

What is this nonsense?

It isn't like gold is a difficult concept to understand. Generally speaking (cough Japan) you trade credits for penetration.

 

What this means is that gold heavily penalizes people who are still grinding to purchase tanks. Once you have settled into just playing what you have you can largely support your gold needs with normal play. But if you still have to shell out to purchase new vehicles, you have to give up casual gold use.

 

Effectively the existence of gold ammo penalizes newer players, who already have a giant hill to climb just to get their crews, equipment, actual game skill, etc... on an even footing with folks who are entrenched. 

 

I'd like to see that change, but it would require some significant economy rework.

There is no debate needed about gold. At T10 gold is needed, otherwise you won't be able to confront super heavies. Flank them? Shoot them from behind? Outskill them? Right, fat chance. Gold is required.

A punishment system that actually rewards instead of punishes. I can't comprehend the stupidity behind a rewarding punishment system.
