gold ammo used by no skilled players is ruining this game, i know im not the best player, i worked at side scraping and my angles and tactics and game play, and have it ruined by a no skill player using gold ammo 

 

gold ammo should be gained by paying with gold not creds and wg would make more money that way as the no skill players will have to buy thier way out of trouble or buy their skill and not earn it like the rest of us who try

 

thinking of leaving this once great game when my prem account ends

As long as Japanese heavy tanks are also banned I'm good with that.

That doesn't really make much sense if I have read it correctly. So instead of people buying gold ammo with credits they can only buy with gold purchased from Premium shop ? ... anyone regardless of skill at WoT could have money to purchase gold so ... :unsure:

I'm spamming just as much gold ammo now (or maybe even a bit less), as I did when it was gold only;)

Disagree, common misconception or rage comment. On the contrary it actually takes skilled players to use effectively whereas "no skilled players" will actually struggle more than standard ammo. Pressing the 2 key doesn't autopen, far from it. What it does is it gives you more pen no doubt about that but at a catch. Firstly, it doesn't auto pen, if your pen is a certain value and the armor you aim at exceeds those values, you don't pen. Secondly, they will almost certainly have a less forgiving attribute vs that tanks standard round.

 

AP - This is a somewhat forgiving and flexible ammunition, it has good normalization vs angles when compared to APCR that must have that shot aimed better and is more reliant on kind RNG. It also has the ability to both track and damage a tank simultaneously where a HEAT round would simply be absorbed by such things like tracks and spaced armor.

 

APCR -  If your tank fires this round as a standard shell, then pressing the 2 key for better pen values in which to defeat your enemy comes at a cost. Firstly there is the shell velocity, in most cases you will go from the light speed gun to target of the APCR to what will feel like a derp round, this needs experience to know vs fast moving or ranged targets or peak-a-boo enemy. Also, if you think you can track and enemy you are wasting your time and credits as HEAT will simply be absorbed. Also, vs spaced armor, pressing the 2 key will be of no use.

 

HEAT - This has so far as I know the best normalization of premium ammo, which means it will forgive angles of enemy armor that would ricochet an AP round and most certainly ricochet an APCR round. As mentioned, the draw backs are usually velocity and the fact you really must carefully aim your shots or more often than not it will find some part of the enemy tank it doesn't like and will do nothing at all, not even a token track.

 

My point? Clear enough I think, spamming gold isn't some sort of miracle cure to being a bad player and in every case, for a game heavily soaked in RNG, shooting premium ammo without careful consideration and aiming will be even more detrimental to your situation. In any case, it is very expensive, important to make count and is only really effective for knowledgeable players that know these ammunition characteristics and where to aim vs which tank etc. Personally I like their inclusion, feel their cost is about right, will lose you credits if you indulge and the fact that they all have consequential drawbacks and much less forgiving than standard AP makes them about right... ya... I think all in all, they are about right the way they are. I suppose a slight alpha drop would be acceptable.

 

Edit- HESH- I have no tanks that carry this ammo and so can't comment. I'm sure someone reading will enlighten us as to this premium ammo's gains vs drawbacks though :)

It's just HE with better pen.

 

It also has a magnetic attraction to tracks and spaced armour.

HEAT can track and do dmg at the same time, it depends on heat pen value and target you are shooting at.

Rule of thumb, higher pen HE and same mechanics.

They always say that. "This game is no good. But at one point I thought it good enough to buy a year's subscription, so I'd better carry on playing the game I no longer like for another couple of months". It really is screwed up.

3 years ago I would have said, good for random battles, bad for competitive games.

Due to armour creep that´s no longer true....
