The solution is simple.

 

Make premium ammo make less damage than a normal ammo. Something like -30%. Or even -50%? Then even the more dense people will notice. Maybe then people will eventually learn to aim (or think) and in a tank game armor and how you use it actually matters. 

 

Just a thought.

 

And yeah, didn't play russian, so heat just went trough my  (not russian) turret like nothing. And I am not speaking about weakspots.

 

Edit: Now realize that I did not post a replay so this is one more pointless whining topic again...The replay is gone. Sorry about that.

Wargaming Developement Committee Brainstorming meeting:

 

Sergi: I have an absolutely brill Idea, I mean so brill it could win prizes.

Igor: Whats that Sergi?

Sergi: We nerf Premium Ammo so it does less damage than regular ammo. Good yes?

Igor: Won't that mean players will use less Premium ammo?

Sergi: Of course. Thats the point isnt it?

Igor: But Sergi, some players actually pay us money for Premium Ammo. If they stop buying, we get no more Vodka.

Sergi: Damn those Capitalist pigs. We'll teach them. Lets buff the armour on the Obj's. 

Igor: Now that's what I call thinking Sergi. More Vodka?

It seems we have new WG employees, normally they are Ivan and Igor (or something like that). As to premium ammo, yeah issue with nerfing the dmg on it is that tanks like the Type 5 Heavy will become more ret*rd proof as people will have to shoot more at it thus bouncing more rounds aswell. To be fair, the only way you can balance prem rounds is by fixing the armor and then removing prem rounds. Because sorry, but you can't balance armor around 2 types of shells which have (at tier X atleast) often something like 60mm pen difference. Either the one with less pen is useless or the one with more pen will be OP as balls. Pick your poison.

Show me where I can aim a Type 5 with normal rounds and I'll stop shooting premium.

 

 

 

 

 

ps. Using your armor does matter, you just can't.

ps2. First rule off not getting damaged, is to not get shot in the first place.

if they do that, game will be worse and they will lose a lot players. only way you will be able to play game with this mechanic will be tier 10, anything else would be so inferior that no one will touch it (why punishing yourself and be only meat in battle)

If you nerf prem ammo damage by half the only thing you will see is people shoot you with twice as much.
