It's just ridiculous. Tier 9s spamming gold in 3-5-7 tier 9 game, tier 5 t67 kv-1 t1 heavy, every t10 match (but that's an old trend anyway), even all the goddamn premium tanks that ARE SUPPOSED to make credits spam gold. For example every 2nd Skorpion G that i have met just spams gold against me, no matter what tank i am driving - t10 or t6. About 75% of all t67 drivers just spam gold and dont [edited]care if they are shooting a low armored vehicle, for example the alecto or like 90% of the tanks at T5-T6. The only thing i can think about is limiting the skill ammo to maybe be only 15-20% of your total ammunition in a certain tank. For example if you have an Obj 140 with a maximum capacity of 50 shells, then you can only load 10 skill shells. Maybe there are better solutions for this problem but something must be done for sure

Are you whining about players shooting prem ammo at targets that didn't need it to pen?  Why?  Who cares?  I have sympathy for those that use a vehicle that has armour as as defining characteristic, and prem ammo balances them into a smouldering wreck.

WG is already planning to address it somehow. First step was to make it silver only - hence lowering the "I've bought it for real hard cash, gimme my gold ammo refund back" cries. Lets wait and see.

Doesn't matter what sort of ammo the enemy are firing, if they don't hit you.  If you aren't a target, you don't get shot at.  Git gudder.

Definitely needed its own thread... Much constructive, much informative, much wow. 

 

@Moderators: Lock and junk please, and put OP on the 'gold' list; next time he/she creates such a needless, pointless thread > suspension.

A true dinger would convert gold to silver, then spam it... :coin:

Some of the more obvious reasons why people will fire gold:

 

1) They can afford to, potentially quite easily. Especially in a premium tank, you can fire a few gold shells and still make a decent profit. Remember that taking out enemy tanks early increases your likelihood of dealing more damage as you can survive longer, which results in more credits at the end of the game.

2) They're venting frustration. Particularly popular with gold shells and derp-guns.

3) They've already loaded the gold shell anticipating needing it against a hard target, but a tier-2 tank drove into view instead. Most players will obviously choose to simply take the shot if they can do the damage. Since the game doesn't dynamically allow us to swap shell types without having to reload, unless we get that loader passive which has like a 15% chance of success last I checked, reloading isn't a viable option but shooting is.

4.) Some tanks have abysmal shell velocity on AP, but great on premium APCR and actually hit what they aim at with it

I am spamming gold in the Churchill BP but it is entirely necessary. I am bouncing off everything with AP

I'm starting to shoot more gold as well. .because why not? With all the credit boosters running. And with the xp boosters i really feel the urge to get the best out of my doubles. Bad teams and 3/5/7 mm can also tilt me in shooting more gold again i feel the pressure to do the max i can. 

 

The thing remains, as long as i STILL make profit shooting gold, why not? So, gold ammo should just become way more expensive, and/or tier9/10 tanks should get more expensive as well just to force players to be really conscious about the credits they are spending / not earning.

Game is completly broken at this point. 

 

Solution? Dont pay Wargaming and just shoot some red tanks in randoms.

 

Edit: Did I mention the insane amount of bots already that seems to pop-up in great numbers last days? Jesus Wargaming FIX YOUR GAME
