So Ranked Battles are supposed to be based on player skill yes? 

 

I believe that if its based off your skill than there should not be use of premium(gold, whatever you want to call it) ammo, your skill/knowledge of weak-spots and maneuvering should dictate if you pen the enemy.

 

What do you guys think?

You got it all wrong. Ranked battles are not meant to be fair. They are nothing but another way of milking the community. Terms like "fair" and "balance" are bad for business. Rigged MM giving you constant victory or defeat series, armor meta forcing you to spam gold rounds, RNG causing you to miss even fully aimed shots and no credit earnings without premium account are there for a reason. Don't confuse ranked battles in WoT with ranked systems in other games.

Wrong. Remove gold ammo and Type 5 has TERRIBLE dpm.

Stop making dumbass comments.

 

Remove gold ammo and people will actually aim. Maybe some players only hit 8 out of 10 shots. Im already not feeling sorry for them.

Type5 might have terrible DPM with standard HE, but it wouldnt matter. Remove gold and it becomes pmuch immune to standard ammo while still being able to do 300 damage to everything in return.

 

Derp guns are not about DPM. With prem HE, type 5 has effectively like 1600 or so base DPM, yet it can rack damage very well because of the effective DPM that is actually high. You almost never, ever will be able to dish out damage as well as your DPM stat states due to chances of missing, bouncing, hitting track or hitting the gun. With Type5 its only the misses and to extremely minor extend, gun hits.

 

Gold ammo is dumb but ask yourself - would full HE spam Maus/Type 5 camp festival be much better than gold spam festival? I wouldnt say so.

 

Blame the poor balance at tier 10 where things are balanced around premium ammunition.

The problem is: some tanks (Type 5 example) are balanced against premium ammo.

Those tanks would be too strong when premium ammo is banned.

 

Thank you WG for your great balancing.

As others have pointed out, much of the current balance is centered around gold ammo, removing it would  not be possible without a significant change to armor layouts.
