I don't know about you, but I for one am getting really fed up with all these noobs firing standard ammo.

 

I mean almost every game I get shot by some noob firing ap or he .hardly ever do I get shot with gold.

 

I'm pressing 2 a lot in an attempt to educate the enemy. But they just don't get it.

 

This is getting really old. I might have to send a ticket and complain about this appalling behaviour.

When you've played too many Ranked Battles and return to randoms.

The problem is, there are too many noobs and new players who don't know game mechanics or have to few credits to buy premium ammo.

It's really a shame. But maybe it's you and you only notice when someone is firing ap on you ? Do you maybe drive only old lightly armored tanks and not enough ussr tanks?

If the problem stays for you, you should try grinding towards more soviet lines like obj 268v4 or is7. Those very weak tanks tend to get more premium rounds fired towards them so maybe this should fix that for you.

I hope I could help

The best way to avoid using ammo spam of any time is to start the battle by yelling in your most bloodthirsty Worf voice: "Today IS a good day to die! PREPARE FOR RAMMING SPEED!"

This works best if you are piloting the Starship Defiant, or bottom tier arty in a +2 tier game.

I can recommend to everyone to switch places between standard and gold ammo, so that gold ammo is on '1' key and standard ammo on '2' key, that way you don't forget to load gold as often. This is especially helpful on tank that has apcr or ap as both gold and standard round. Taht way you might even forget you are spamming gold!

based on community feedback, we are going to remove standard ammo from game.

Those who do not cheat by using Premium ammo are welcome. If you ever see me in a HT, then the chances are that I am trying a very difficult PM that requires me to stay alive longer than 30 seconds. Please stick to normal AP and especially try to hit my thickest armour. Thanks.

You just know that randoms no longer have any dinger material, maybe only 5% ... but once the ranked battles end, so does any dinger legacy. :(

 

I will miss that hissing sound. :honoring: Press "F" to show respect.

Standard ammo is not a big problem. Only 5% of shells fired are standard.

Dude, what planet are you living on?

 

Have you ever tried lowtiers? Have you ever met autocannons emptying a standard ammo clip on you?

 

This game is dying people. DYING!!!
