You get gold spammed by top tier tanks as a tier 8 getting all your hp wiped off. here i go near the corner in my Liberte, ready to bounce some tier 10 guns by baiting shots with my hull armor... aaaaand GOLD right threw my turret face by a IS-7. by the time i pull back he took 80% of my hitpoints as he is the size of a god dam medium and i have no hope in hell of hurting him or even out DPM'ing him.

 

Now im sat with no HP left and i got arty focusing me coz XVM told him in a blue player. but dont shoot the top tier paper tanks. nooooo shoot the bottom tier heavy with almost no hitpoints and no chance in hell of changing the outcome of the match!

 

Screw every single person who dares spam gold at lower tiers becuase they cant fight fair or learn weak spots. being top teir and superior in every aspect not good enough? nope. gotta spam that 2 key to make your E-Peen bigger. screw you.

Why would you shoot anything else but gold? If you can't pen, shoot gold or don't shoot at all.

I thought it was arty you hated while playing LTs

 

but here goes anyway

 

Limit gold ammo to 10 per tank, if that guy just zerged you with gold then he has less to shoot at top tier tanks, this would ensure that he is gimped late game and at least you have assisted your team even though your games pretty much over already.

In your tier 8 trying to bait shots from tier 10's and you think gold ammo is the problem.

Why would you carry anything but APCR in the is7???

Aside from credits there are no disadvantages. Same thing with the 50b or the S.C for example.

 You arn't supposed to play heavy tanks anymore, just mediums and Type 4-5 with gold spam. 
The game is full of scum that only press 2 to win.

Well I'm constantly discovering new weakspots on my tanks.... like the 430U being penned on the turret, or the t98 being penned frontally... all without premium ammo...

 

Found a new respect for tomatoes driving the Super Pershing, I was with an obj 257... frontally and he didn't even have to use gold..

 

Ended up installing battle hits, very instructive mod....

Why would you fly anything but first class? Aside from the cost there are no disadvantages......

Of course you get goldspammed in liberte, it's one of those dumb armour layout "point me to the enemy and pray no gold"! Try to use tanks with a better armour layout, like VK100 (or KV-4 if you feel hardcore) and you will see how a well angled armour can stop gold!

Exactly! Let the other plebs bounce once or twice before they see the light. :)

WG says in that MM you should be going for the opposing tier 8 HT.....as the IS7 rolls though everyone as you tier 10 HT sits afk in base.

For some tanks 10 rounds are enough to kill a number of same tiered vehicles, for others maybe just one. Sorry not a great plan. Really the OP just needs to decide whether he really wants to keep playing this game at all.

Liberte can do it. if you use the armor right. but gold just raw pen negates even heavy slopes and its stupid.

 

@Dava

 

Stupid armor layout? its cupola is pretty big and HE pennable. sorry the top tier tank doesent feel like shooting weak spots like a common tomato moron.

Maybe there's someone wrong with ones armor layout when one expects to shrug of top tier standard rounds and those +2 tier heavies should have to go cupola hunting ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

PS: Since when is a 1.6k wn8 or 54% wr considered "blue"?:teethhappy:

Took you an awful long time to pull back then... Were you hoping, or expecting, that IS-7 to change ammo type after that first shot or something? Or were you just a bit slow to process the situation and make a proper decision? Somewhat stubborn maybe?

Based on how you presented yourself initially to that IS-7, that SPG player probably (and righly so) assumed you'd make for a static, easy, and willing target...

The armour layout is stupid because you can't really angle it propely. Sides are really weack, so you can't angle, the shoulders doesn't allow you toto effectively use cover to angle the front. So I can uderstand a tier 10 that just spam you with gold: you can't do anything about that so it's almost sure pen, let's load the gold! I don't share the concept, but sure I can uderstand them.

I expect to bounce shots off my front when i angle it correctly. you make it sound like im expecting it to be a defender and just bounce all the shots without a single care. if i want to shoot the tank i need to expose my cupola. thats when you hit the liberte, or just shoot the angled paper plate. but thats asking too much in this goldspam meta game now.
