So i have played this game for many years now and i must admit that the amount of people using gold ammo and in general gold ammo have ruined this game. 

I cant see the point of have it in game besides the small chance of WG earning money on premium accounts and credit packs. 

It have totally ruined the gameplay and most often killed the whole experience of playing this game. I see only two ways(if gold ammo stays) to sort this.

1: Buff every single tank in-game so that have a chance to withstand the gold ammo 

2: Make gold ammo the only ammo besides HE. 

 

I liked gold ammo in the beginning when it was first implanted since it gave you the chance of doing dmg to higher tier tanks when you are the lower tier, and when it was available only for gold. 
Nowadays 80% of the player base is using it and then it becomes a big problem. Especially if you are driving a older model tank like E-100 models from the German lines or similar, these tanks already is obsolete compared to the newer models. It makes no sense to that a 1940´s tank vs. 1950/60/70´s tanks. 

 

I know that there is alot of people thinking exactly the same thing as i am. 

 

Gold ammo will probably stay in game since WG apparently is earning money on it so either buff every tank or make gold the new stock ammo or the 3rd possibility is to make it available only for gold and pump up the price on it(which never happens because everyone who dont know how to aim in this game will whine = 80% of the player base)

I really hope WG will take a notice of this growing big problem.

This is a very original post. I've never seen anyone complain about gold ammo before this.

In addition, made up paytown8 ratings participated in ruining it. Everyone knows, the only way to a good game is Rush Rating.

In the next patch gold ammo will be purchasable with credits only and my hope is that they'll increase their price to reduce the numbers. Only removing the option of buying them gold won't be enough though.

WG have noted the problem.

 

There will be no more gold ammo starting with the next patch, which should be here any day now.

Only Dingers will be allowed to premium ammo. This has been decided at the highest levels of WG. The reasoning behind this radical, yet logical, decision is that The Dingers have led the way in promoting the restraint in the use of premium a.k.a. gold ammo. I'm sure that the the entire WG community can sigh a breath of relief .

More weak spots to the people, and nerf all tier 9 and 10 heavies and TD's! Then we can let "gold" ammo go.

Have you noticed the problem with that? No? Ok I'll tell you. The people playing high tiers will have lots of credits to destroy low tiers, and better players will have another advantage by farming even more credits. So it's a formula for stat padders. Players that have been in the game a long time will have a massive credit earning advantage even if they are 46% bots. Basically it means you don't want to be a beginner in WOT.

It's not really a change though is it?  You will still be able to use gold to buy premium ammo it will just take an extra step to convert the gold to credits.

WG is apparently aware of the problem and are taking the first step towards a rework in the next patch, but it will likely be at least a year before a full solution is introduced.

Simple answer to gold ammo would be to keep the higher pen but reduce the damage?

​For some reason I suspect that if they would reduce the damage by 50%, the amount of god ammo used would double. 

As this would be make the financial department very happy I expect to see this introduced asap.

And here I thought Vikings loved gold and all that other bling bling. Also, that E-100 experience you have; got it on Test Server?

Wouldn't double it. Increase yes, but double no. It would ruin balance even more though, when implemented in isolation.
