I normally play meds and light tanks... Sitting in one place playing peek-a-boom is boring.

 

I finally picked up a Type 4 Heavy.

 

A 113 just gold spammed me to death. 

 

What's the point?

 

What's the point in having all this armor if WG allows people to pay to win and gold spam you?

 

/rant I'm going back to meds and lights.

When you unlock the top gun, load gold and spam for 600 - 1000 damage with autoaim you will understand why people spam gold back to it.

Lol, before adding derp to Type 4/5 gold spam vs these tanks was the same, so it's just stupid excuse. Type 4 was most horrid tier IX grind for me from all tech trees.

The point is that you can dig out tanks from strong positions with your derp gun. As long as you can trade shot for shot you'll pretty much out trade any equal tier heavy.

That being said Type 4/5 have a rather silly armor layout, both tanks are borderline impenetrable for standard shells, but against premium shells the armor is.... uh... slightly less effective. It's a box tank for god sake, majority of its armor is flat.

Update: Yup everyone just shoots gold at me. It's not fun.

 

Dunno, I'm one of those players that has had a premium account for 6 years but refuses to shoot gold. 

 

I have $hit to buy with my credits, I'm not going to waste them on gold. 

 

Anyway... I'm going back to meds and lights. Flanking is more fun than spamming gold.

Don't drive badly balanced and stupid tanks, all the Japanese heavies very much deserve the premium ammo spam for their weakspot free armour and noobtube derp guns.

O-I and upwards get the gold treatment. It's only those who are philosophically opposed to gold ammo and those who don't know better that use normal ammo.

So you picked that broken tank with no weakspots and people dare to shoot gold to damage you instead of sitting in open and letting you farm them. Oh no.

I unpicked it. I don't play the game to be a gold spam magnet. 

 

I don't enjoy tier 9-10 where players pay to do more damage than others.

 

I don't give a fuk if people shoot with me with gold in a light or med.

 

I think I'm just going to sell this tank and grind something else.

I don't really shoot premium on Type 4s, you can pretty much easy pen them with same tier heavies, from the front, the armor isn't that good.

But if I meet a Type 5, that's another story. My hand automatically goes to 2 key and presses it twice.

I smash that 2 key if I'm on the same half of the map as a Japanese heavy. Not even HT VI's are safe as they raise and harbour game criminals inside. :izmena:

I'll fire T110E4 APCR at Japanese heavies, because it is what they and the driver deserves.

Sometimes I shoot premium ammo at paper tanks just to piss them off :hiding:

I have a hard enough time paying for new tanks with a premium account and my Type 59.

 

How the heck does anyone profit in this game shooting gold???

In my time playing WoT I did not often have the feeling to just exit the game at the start of a battle (which I've seen/heard people do when there where 3+ arty/side in a match). However, lately I've been playing quite some tier 9 games and almost every one had 1 or 2 of those abominations in them. And lately quitting a match at the start is crossing my mind... especially after being derped with gold HE 3 games in a row.

 

If you don't like playing the type 4/5 (whether it is because of gold spam, slow, derpy w/e), please do yourself and us a favour and stop playing them!

Tanks that are played pretty much with full prem ammo load out shouldn't be bothered if people counter them with prem ammo.
