Playing IS-3 Vs IS-3. One of the IS-3 starts firing gold ammo, the other one don't. The IS-3 with premium ammo does damage every single shell, the other one does 0 damage. It is almost like you are forcing people to buy premium ammo, so stupid. Wish you could just remove these shells or make them more expensive.

 

I have not played the game in the last 9 months, but i know that before it was not like this. Wargaming you made a great game, but you are making it worse for every update. You are also losing alot of your player base because of your decisions.

If you can't even pen your own tank with AP, how will that fix anything?

Please learn the weak spots of tanks.

 

See where the green is? That's where you get easy penetrations. See that weakspot above the gun mantlet? If close, then aim there.

We both showed 10% of our tank, we had allyes shooting too. But making you click 2 just because you dont do damage with your first shell, is kinda broken. The guy also died 10 sec after i died.

So why were you constantly hoping you'd bounce and trade shots non stop? I'd think that after 2 shells you'd back out maybe. You don't need premium to pen an is3 in an is3.

Biggest problem is that the gold ammo is not gold ammo anymore its now silver ammo if you had had a break maby read up on the patch notes before  making a topic here making yourself look a big idiot

It's still called goldammo and the removal of the gold part didn't change anything concerning the balance.

 

@ topic: Premammo is still gamebreaking, we know that.

Besides that and to rule out exaggeration and lies: Replay?

IS-3 Can easily pen another IS-3 with AP. It's just your incompetence.

IS3 vs IS3 can't pen with standard ammo lol! wow just wow.

 

IS3 standard AP pen value 225mm

 

IS3 lower plate= roughly 190mm(shot pens easy)

 

"but but but he angled his tank"

 

IS3 upper nearest "pike" upper plate you simply cannot miss when he angles = around 145mm(easy pen)

 

So if an IS3(or ANY of the Russian pike nosed tanks point at you, shoot lower plate, if he angles, shoot upper plate.

 

Also, git gud!

Well, premium ammo spam has become more rampant especially the last couple of years. Partially this is due to the huge credits influx in the economy by (personal) missions making it easier for even the worst players to spam gold ammo left, right and centre.

 

In 2012 it was rare to be shot at by gold ammo, nowadays it's the norm on higher tiers it seems. You should take a look at my hit log when I play for a laugh.

So... you don't know how to pen your own tank then?  As shown above. The plate above the gun is 20mm. It's more or less auto pen for your gun as you overmatch it at any angle. And if you see 10% of his tank, and he can hit you. That's probably an area you see. And if he knows about that plate, and you don't. It don't matter what he presses tbh.

I've had a similar battle.

 

Two Top Tiers. Two IS-3s, with me behind the wheel in one of them.

 

I shot gold and won the match. I won't go into details, but if the team is counting on its top tiers to win, one should be do what it takes and what the game allows to deliver it. I'm not the type of "Oh! I won't use gold out of principle." and premium rounds are available for everyone in the same why.

An IS-3 can easily pen another IS-3's hull front...unless one of them is using the stock 122mm gun with 175mm of penetration.

 

Have you not considered that possibility before jumping to conclusions? :sceptic:

Nobody's making you do anything.

If you can shoot, you'll pen; if not, use the crutch and even then I'm pretty sure you'll find a way to fail.

Not just premium ammo... 

Imagine my shock in mm created loss game, that my jpe100 300mm pen shell, fails to pen 80mm side armour

+my angled 250mm armour is penned with 100%
