Not everyone spams gold. Some people like me use a KV-2 and use regular ammo since the 152`s gold ammo isnt that useful.

Playing tanks that have no armor is great for gold spammers as they waste huge amounts of credits just to kill you with no diffrence in result

Sometime, maybe never.

 

It could be just another of those ideas WG floats around then drops when the negative impacts are realised.

Let's hope they do. Reducing damage on premium rounds without addressing the actual problems, or at the very least properly balancing vehicles across Tiers will only make things far, far worse.

Only gold can penetrate gold. That's why.

 

True fact. :hiding:

Nerfing gold ammo is imho bad idea because goldspam will spread even more.

They should cap it as a % of a loadout.

...and goldspammers will run out of ammo more often, while dealing less damage overall, which is kinda the point?

 

You're all too paranoid about the suggested nerf GEEZ think about it for a second! :facepalm:

That's a rather bad attitude. When a part of the game causes real problems, it should get discussed and fixed, even if some people like it.

What about illegal mods, trolling and suiciding? Stop caring, let others do what they want?

"Let people do what they want" is also why we can't have nice things in RL. 

 

@ thread: We had it in the news, we had several big threads about it. 

The search-function is your friend.

All that happens then is people spam gold at the start then go suicide when they run out.  It was tried in historical battles.

Yup, Coz players dont know how to play anymore.

MODs and prem ammo is the game, thats why tier 9 - 10 heavys in my garage is useless. Playing hightiers is a certain fail for "norm" players.

It doesn't.  It's just a focus for people to cry about.

 

Adding weakspots might mean you get less premium ammo used but it won't make your heavy any harder to kill, it will just make it cheaper to kill.

Making "special" ammo do less damage will just make you more expensive to kill and take a little longer.  But remember that while your heavy is taking longer to die it will let arty hit you more times.

 

There's only downsides to changing premium ammo, no upside.

 

But it's what all the self proclaimed experts wanted and WG are at a point where they want to be seen to doing what the players ask, even if they know it's a completely stupid idea.

I don't think that's true at all.

 

Players have become better over the years, more tactical with more sophisticated tactics employed even by the worst players.  But not everyone can have 80% win rate, if you have above average players then you have to have below average players.

It's an upside for anyone wanting to do arty stun missions. :great:

The current idea can go both ways. As it will make low DPM armored HT's that most have issues penning with normal ammo as is dominate more. As they can out dpm just about anyone pressing 2 then in a 1 on 1. Like the IS-6 vs the Defender. But it can also make it better, as in more risking a sure pen,  to go for even 30% chance to get more alpha. 

 

Capping the load will have a different effect. As then the Defender and Type 4 lose half their HP... then suddenly no one can pen them anymore, and then the flank collapses even faster. As when most HT guns on tier 8 can't fight the recent equal tier armor with a 25% chance to pen with AP even. It won't fix anything. As then we just start the loop again like we have done a few times already.
