It's so hard for you to look at ammo values that you need forumites help with it?  :teethhappy:

Maybe they are just smart enough to have figured out that there is a 2 key to press. Or something. I don't know.

Well, as a matter of fact you will. Several reasons:

1. You are no longer interested in getting all the tanks, because you've played them all, so this time you aim for the OP ones only and freeXP the trash.

2. You literally are better than on day 1, you won't make the stupid mistakes you used to do like rushing your AMX 40 down the middle of the map and hope to get someone to shoot at.

3. Because you are in for stats and not for actually playing and developing yourself, you'll probably spam gold as much as needed, you'll stick with the tanks that can boost your crew and delay your tiers because you know if you play with 4 skill crew at tier 7 you'll be much better than 1 skill, etc.

 

A normal player doesn't give 2 fks about boosting crews, we want tanks, and we want them fast!

Because the use of the correct ammo type is both effective and efficient. We all want that, don't you?

What is more surprising is meh players spamming gold ammo, they don't have stats to maintain.

Because the Super Conqueror is a very weak tier 10 and needs all the help it can get when faced with an M4 Rev.

I don't like premium ammo because I'm too cheap to use it.

 

I also don't like the fact that you basically have a choice between using premium ammo to (possibly) increase your stats and chance to win, but with the risk of advancing slower within the game financially.

 

There have definitely been games where I could have influenced the game to a win by using premium ammo, but refused to push the 2 key. The question is, who is more at "fault"

- The people who refuse to use premium ammo and thus have less impact on the game result

- WG for adding a game mechanic where you can increase your chance of winning, but only if you are willing to pay (in game silver) for it

 

Now, if premium ammo wasn't available in certain tiers I'd restrict my game play to those tiers and I wouldn't have to worry about the negative impact of my disabled 2 key, but as it is you are always left with the doubt "could we have won if..."

 

My opinion is that it's a game mechanic that should be removed, but since more and more OP tanks require you to use it in order to penetrate their armor WG is making this less and less of an "easy" option.

Because it means to use the right or not worse ammo for a given situation in about 90%+ of cases.

All that will help your average, but please explain how it would have any effect whatsoever on your 'recents.'

To be honest It's because of many decisions made by wargaming.

 

2+ years ago I fired 2-3 times less gold. Why? Because tanks had weakspots and not every new tank had amazing armor, even the meds. Also new maps mean less flanking opportunities and more passive hull down shitfights when you have to make every enemy mistake count. 

 

Overall - armor creep + no weakspots (sorry vk1001p 220-250 cupola is not a weakspot) + corridor maps = gold spam.

Same reason why 99% of bad players use gold ammo too. But guess what, they're still bad.
