Been playing heavy tanks today (Type 4 Heavy and AMX M4 45)...

I'm trying to work out why I even bothered, every shot that ever hits me is gold.. purely because people can't play properly.
 

I know WG said they were going to rework this, but that seems to have died a death.
 


 

Gold ammo is getting such a problem now that when I was in a T3 match (Playing the Swedish Tank) a Tier 4 was spamming gold.. I mean come on


 

Seriously losing the will to play armoured tanks because what's the point.


 

(Most, if not all of my tanks carry mostly standard round) Most I ever carry is 5 Gold, even then, they barely get used.

Or maybe because you were driving a tank with lots of armor and a big gun? You should try thinking outside that sturdy metal box...

Hopefully never.

 

Been "power grinding" ranked battles in my Hype 5 and without gold, even in Tier X, you cannot pen it over distance. Though I do enjoy trolling HEAT spammers. As I am not a HT player, I expect every single shot to get through and SPG focus. Even TDs will struggle.

 

But sometimes you'd be surprised to see how uselessly an enemy team is willing to throw a game just because they happen to see a target even a 50% crew wouldn't miss. :trollface:

This, while your second tank might as well have no armour anyway so people firing Gold at it are pretty laughable.

As much as I agree the Type 4/5 Heavy tanks deserve the goldspam because of their disgusting derp guns, I can't shake the fact all their armor is basically meaningless...

judging by them gonna take 6 months just to stick a couple of lines of code in the MM algorithm, id say gold ammo will be `fixed` by roughly 2021

The issue is that unless they can rework the normal ammo for every tank in the game, removing it is not gonna fix anything. Then you will be back the next day to whine about your meds that can't pen the Type 4 even on the side. Even more so considering half the tier 8's HT's can't even get a 30% pen chance on the new tier 8 premium HT's of late head on. So it's not a balance fix that will be done overnight. Nor is reducing the damage by 30-40% on it a solid option. As then I'm willing to bet the premiums won't be touched, as it's considered a nerf. And you know what happens when they want to nerf anything on a premium tank. So there is that to consider. As then all you have is half the tier 8's in a match do 250 on their IS-3, while the WZ-111's 250 heat pen still does 390 with gold vs your Type. 

 

Regardless of your "easy" fix for the issue. There will be many with solid counter-arguments vs your fix that might make you see why it's not an easy fix for WG as you might think. They have more then just you to please.

If they can still auto pen you with AP. Why complain? Just be happy you're not treated as a cheap date they dump instantly. I know it's the principle matter etc. But still.

Because you're not firing premium ammo yourself from that Type 4.

Well done shooting yourself in the foot in the first line of your post.

 

There is nothing wrong with premium ammo.  Either people are using it when they should - i.e. against heavily armoured targets, or they are wasting credits.  I don't see how you can complain about either case.  It seems to me you just want to press R twice in your noob friendly tank without any consequence.

Why are you in such a bad mood?  Perhaps try a warm pad on your belly bits and a cup of tea dear.

I see, you think I'm in a bad mood but you don't say I'm wrong, so.....

 

As for tea, not my thing.  I used to have it in a baby bottle when I was about 1yr old, or so my mum tells me.  I'd rather have a beer, thanks.

Right, and that Type 4 requires any brain function at all to play... It's not a broken vehicle at all, which basically forces others to fire premium rounds at it because flanking isn't an option on most corridor brawl maps catering exactly to rather mediocre players like you (as well as all the bad ones)? And if you do get your rear end handed to you, I would suggest it's you who actually cannot play properly. And instead come crying here on the forum about all them bad players firing premium rounds at you.

Hello everyone, 

There are already plenty discussions about gold ammo and furthermore this one isn't adding anything to previous discussions.. 

In consequence, this thread has been locked.

 

Thank your for your understanding.
Jahpero
