Can someone explain to me why almost everyone is spamming gold in ranked? I really don't understand it, you don't need gold to get chevrons.. u get chevrons by playing good, tracking, and stealing kills.. i really don't understand the gold spam, i've made 3 mill profit by playing ranked without even 1 gold shell, me and a friend both got to rank11 without gold and without food, and by training our stock crews with 0 crew skills.. it's not hard... 

 

Ranked is for credit grinding and crew grinding and bonds (if u want), so why waste thousands of credits, if not millions, by playing a bad gamemode? i'm not trying to blow my own horn by saying i got rank 11 without gold and without playing much, im just asking why people are spamming gold in Ranked? it doesn't even affect your stats.. 

like, they can spam gold if they want, it is their own choice, it really doesnt matter lol, but i just want to know WHY, so pls everyone that shoots gold in ranked pls just tell me your thought process

why not?

 

how am I supposed to pen types and mauses? do you want me to just stand there shooting AP at them over and over again? my friend that's what you call insanity, doing the same thing over and over with nothing to show for it.

 

gold ammo is a problem, in fact a massive one at that but unfortunately this is the direction the game has been going for a long time now.

You are a bit weird yourself right?

 

around 50% of the tanks you face off are either IS-7s, E 100s, Type 5 Heavies, Obj 268 4 or similarly armored tanks. I for one won't be the stupid one and gamble to pen these tanks. I will shoot gold exclusively at these tanks and if by chance a lower armored vehicle gets in my way while I fight the heavies I will obviously still shoot it with gold and still load gold in case after I reload I have to shoot heavies again. And saying that shooting gold doesn't take skill? Hah, aren't you funny? I can send you in 10 ranked battle games where I shoot heavy tank's supposed weak spots with prem rounds. If I hit somewhere else, guess what was the case?

 

In the end it doesn't matter because prem ammo is in the game and it won't disappear that quickly.

The funny thing is that the 2 key is no garanty to win.

And if you don't shoot gold you realize that you can pen a Type 5 with a tiers 8 light if you aim the right place ... and when people shoot gold at you they would have penned with any ammo.

y,es gold makes it easier, but then why did i get rank11 without gold then? Type5's are almost always bad players, u just wait for them to turn their turrets and u pen it with standard, also.. TRACKING, if u cant pen them, u track them, it gives a lot more exp in some situations, because the team will always spam gold so if u track, ur team will pen them anyways and u get more exp, also maybe im just lucky but i penned type5 cupola like 4 shots in a row in 1 game, 

gold makes ranked easier, but u dont need it at all.. me and my friends are literally proof of this..

u shoot gold at IS7's and E100s? really? wow. they are so damn easy to perma track + damage..  also 268v4 cant even be penned even with gold so why would u even try, type5 just wait for them to turn turret or track them for team..

 

idc about the gold spam, like really, i use gold in random battles but random battles mean so so so much more than this "'competitive'' ranked mode, ranked doesnt even affect ur stats, i just dont understand it.. 

when people give their opinion, sure they give these "'maus type5'' etc examples on why they spam gold, it makes sense, but then, this is just theories, im talking about hard facts here, and that is the fact that i got rank11 without gold, so... can u pls explain that to me?

you seem to ignore what I was actually pointing out, right? Even though I shoot gold ammo 90% of all the shells are aimed at weak spots. It's not because I want an "easy game" but I don't want to gamble too much and risk not penning because of a low pen roll. To the Obj 268 4. It has two "weak spots", if you can call these spots "weak spots", frontally. One is at the lowest part of the lower plate, which is really scantly armored and the other "weak spot" is the view port, though it has 250 mm armor. 

 

Now tell me, if I meet these tanks, should I wait until I can flank it, gamble on my shots to hit the weak spots and just bounce of or increase my chances to pen it at the "weak spots" by loading prem ammo?

 

Now, I've given you my explanation to the issue here you are portraying. Don't misunderstand me though. I see where you are coming from and I don't have disdain towards your incredulity to the prem ammo usage in ranked. But ranked is special in this case. It's very rewarding if you can manage to get into the top rankings and it's more understandable if you view it from that perspective. In the end the reward with most value is still bonds as you can not get it other than playing the game.

But the thing i keep trying to point out is, you don't even need gold to get into the 1st (gold) league..

Well I'm rocking a solid 50/50 load-out between prem and HE. Now that's packing skill.
