Could somebody tell me why it would be fun to play this game if the only things I see is this (see attachments)

 

 

Why did wargaming made world of tanks into this, everyone at any event is shooting gold not to play the game like it was somewhat intended with skill and knowledge about tanks. But no every player only shoots good for because they can and only try to get their stats up.

 

How about removing gold ammo for tier VIII and up? when you are on tier VIII you should know how to play and kinda know where weak spots are. This game should be about skill not gold ammo.

Every event isn't fun anymore the only thing I see is gold ammo in every match......

Premium doesn't automatically penetrate enemy tanks.

 

And certain new tanks like Type 5 and Obj 268 v4 completely lack weakspots.

Incoming trolls and wg-agents who cant flank heavy tanks, drive in corridors to fight with maus and light tank shitters who want to to pen heavys face to face.

"How i will pad my WN8 then, everyone padding it i must pad too, gold must exist, who will pay for servers?, actual casino is more popular than wot but who cares,  i just love to crapon people, remove arty!, i hate arty and proud" - just idiots.

Suggest more stupid quotes from them..

Right and WG would make less money.  So accept the fact that this will not happen.

Premium Shells & Consumables Now for Credits Only

Premium shells and consumables have been one of the hottest topics on the agenda, and during the upcoming Common Test, we’ll take the first step toward making a key revision to the entire mechanic.

As noted by Shereef_Salah, it's going to be reviewed but as there's still ammo that was purchased with gold in the game, WG have decided to only restrict how you can buy it for now. When we've had the question before the most popular option (for those willing to re-balance it at all) was to reduce the damage done by premium ammo while retaining its higher pen.

 

Having played my tier 10 heavies for the first time in the last couple of days, I'm in favour of that too. Certain tanks can position themselves so that their weakspots are covered and there's little you can do about it short of loading gold. I don't agree that gold should be removed, my heavies are too slow to flank and can lose half their hp if hit by something like OP's JPE100 (OP's most played high tier tank, 5th most played tank of all).

Along time ago I was of the same thinking , but after a visit from the inquisition and a good thrashing with the soft cushions my mindset changed.

And they'll do it in a way so as to not damage their profits. I you think there's going to be a big change then you're going to be disappointed.

 

This whole thing of making a consumable for credits only when I can exchange 50 gold for the 20k credits anyway is a weak move from WG.   Same with the shells.

Yay! Keep track of what killed you, then come to the forums and whine about it. :medal:

 

Edit: And oh, when was it that arty stopped ruining the game, and "gold" ammo started to get the blame?  The transition phase went straight past me, really.

Also remove free xp concept, so that people can fully enjoy the game as it's meant to be. Stock guns and all.

With the way WG have fucked up the balance of the game, there are times where you HAVE to use it or throw the game.

 

1. When bottom tier

2. If faced with an impenerable jap or soviet monstrosity on a corridor map

 

Arty is still waaaay more annoying, IMO

Yes it should be removed and tanks rebalanced accordingly.

Imagine matches that last more than 9-10 minutes because you actually need to know weak spots on tanks.

It happened 5-6 years ago, when gold ammo was only for gold and very few used it.

Most fun times in wot.
