Playing a number of games recently and it is just getting ridiculous.  WG bring in the premium ammo nerf now.  Quite frankly I think it should be a 50% damage nerf!

So if I can only pen with premium rounds and they do 50% of the damage, I'm going to fire twice as many aren't I for the same effect?

With the added benefit of a reduced price!

A replay of what?

It's a fact most of the rounds fired in battle are premium, I am not complaining as I spam them too.

You can't possibly know that as a fact.

Oh you're gonna love the 112 then right? Or will it still stay at 27 games forever then? That's fine to say when you're most... and more or less only highly played tank has 288 base pen. But try that with the 112 as your main income machine with 50% HEAT alpha and no AP pen and let us know how that works vs Defenders.

You can do that in vanilla though. What I believe Sly was referring to though was how you claimed it's factual that most rounds in a battle are Premium, when you can only see the shells that hit your vehicle (or a platoonmate), and even that doesn't mean the guy firing it has been firing it all battle.

Okay the majority of the rounds that hit me in various tanks in various battles are premium.

I don't mind I use prem' ammo against armoured targets or tanks that have not so good pen or in tanks that still make money while using it.

I used to fire nothing but prem.

Even when it was for gold I used to spam them alot.

News article from 2012

https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/81-premium-ammo-change/

your start date 2014, so if you were using gold, that would've been very silly

Last 3 match every shot i got was gold ammo, AT2, I-O Exp.  Useful tanks now, as i give up speed for armor, that nonexistent.

I thought only 5% of shells fired were premium rounds according to WG? :hiding:

Anyone who actually thinks the proposed premium ammo change is a good thing needs to spend some time thinking about what that means when fighting superheavies.

 

Let's say you're playing an E-75 and you come across a Type 4 or 5. You're not at extremely close range nor do you have a perfectly flat angle at the "weak spots" so barring a lucky high penetration roll you're not going to be doing much frontally, and since you're in an E-75 you're not exactly going to circle the thing to death either so you can either [edited]around with HE (which will do essentially nothing to something this heavily armoured, especially since those tanks tend to mount super heavy spall liners) or load APCR. What you're saying is that you think it would be absolutely splendid if you were hitting those weak spots for 245 damage every 12-13 seconds. Or in other words, you want tanks with ridiculous armour profiles to have their hit points doubled. *edited*

This is the big problem with the premium ammo  change they are working on currently. It simply can't work and it will break the game unless they do a massive  balancing act on the armored tanks.

But if the rounds do 50% less damage, won't I have twice as long as I normally do?

well the whole armor layout and ammo system is issue in itself ... WG wants you use to use prem ammo ... first with the idea to let you pay real money for it and now to drain your credits --> simply to motivate ppl to buy prem accounts and/or tanks

 

its just not a good concept to have tanks that are basicly not able to get penned frontally but turn into butter once you decide to use prem ammo
