because all what it needs is a FULL REBALANCE not just another buying method adjustment / change..?? :facepalm:

 a drawback like less damage in exchange for more pen and standard price and here we go...all problems about that ammo are solved

or pen reduction to same values like standard ammo and let only differences between shells type to count on players choice, + standard price and thats it. Well balanced

 

get rid of P2W in gameplay ! thats what they must change here...not just buying method

Here we go again. 

 

Why do you think that is possible? 

 

What tanks would benefit from that change? 

 

What players would benefit from that change? 

 

What tanks would suffer from that change? 

 

What players wold suffer from that change?

 

 

Please respond to each question

Perhaps try it yourself? You might actually start doing some decent damage (like average to the vehicle's HP) for a change, and actually contribute something to the team you're on. Rather than be a liability most, if not all, the time.

Sorry, I rather learned to aim and feel good about my shots (when RNGesus hits where I aim) instead of applying a substitute for skill and feeling empty inside.

Because that would make it literally pay to win. How is that going to make anything better?

To the best of my knowledge, gold can be awarded to clan players in contests. Therefore, good players- or those who are in clans, could buy Premium ammo totally with the sweat from their own brows, whereas the rest had to pay. Now we can all earn enough credits and buy gold, providing you manage your credits, and/or git gudtm

The game grants those who pay enough advantages as it is and we don't need to turn WoT into pure P2W...

 

What needs to be done is fixing the cause of the symptom, the reason people fire premium ammo in the first place which is down to two main reason, tank balance or rather the lack thereof and map design. Sadly WG's "recent" design decisions have thought the player-base that premium ammo is the way to go and that will be hard to revert back even if they once again introduce things like frontal weakspots and remove/redesign the tunnel maps.

32k battles and you still don't know what problems would come from that suggestion?

No, because we don't want this game to become Pay to Win.

If they sell things for real money (gold) they can't change later because you payed for them with those stats: for gold ammo is the same.

They made premium ammo only for credits because they wanna change them (nerfing).

If they come back with gold they can't change them.

Like old premium tanks-> they can't be nerferd only get better stats,

you did obviously not think it through.

you would have to buff ARL 44 for example then because it was clearly designed around APCR ammo.

 

we need more ammo types available for every vehicle,

not lesss.

It doesn't matter what shell type you aim with,what matters, is you contributing to the team.

You can use both AP and APCR/ HEAT or HESH,and still be a liability.

 

By the way, the ammo isn't premium anymore,so you might as well stop it caliing it that.

Drop regular ammo altogether. Old premium becomes new standard. Should help even the armour protection levels. (HEAT would still suck, but who cares about that!)

You need to get a life with that statement.
