play paper tanks so it does not matter if they fire Gold at you.

No, the game isn't balanced around not having gold ammo, outright removing it would be disastrous, just like the idea was disastrous in the last 10000 topics made about this.

No offence. But 3 of your 4 most played tanks are SPG's. So does it matter what they hit them with?

you'll see everybody in Maus/Type5/e3/VK72 sitting on opposite ends of a corridor dinging off eachother and playing for draws more often since no pushes will happen

Maus vs Maus is not gold ammo dependable, also, if a corridor is blocked by a superheavy, go around it.

 

Anyhow, gold ammo is to be sligthly nerfed is it not. I would however wish that they nerfed it even more than they claimed they would, as the high pen values actively nullifies the few things the superheavies have going for them, which is (supposed to be) survivability.

Would you like to say if gold ammo is better or worse than arty for ruining the game? Would you be confident in retaining your SPG's if Wargaming said to the players 'you can ban gold ammo, or you can ban SPG's, which is it to be'? No, you'd lose your precious SPG's so don't talk about what ruins the game while you are one of the arch enemies of an enjoyable game.

"Should all tiers except T1 be removed from the game because they are overused and no one is using T1 and the players who use T2-T10 tanks are ruining the game for others who use T1 tanks"?

true problem isnt gold ammo by itself, its the abundance you can spam it with ... limit gold ammo to 20% of the ammo load and problem will solve itself ... as long as people can increase theyr performance by paying they will, make it the CHOICE of a moment and you will see drastical dropoff in gold being loaded by default which WILL still improve survivability of heavily armored vehicles, just not as much as outright nerfing the gold or removing it

Yep, that was the most sensible solution ever proposed and it was risen years ago. It would be a wonderful addition, not only it requires skill and strategising but would provide additional balancing stat, for example Leo would gain some ground if it was the tank able to carry most prem ammo for example. If tanks would be able to load on average lets say 5 rounds game would get so much more interesting. There is only one BUT, limiting prem ammo that can be used per battle is a hard cap on prem ammo income, and well, no developer likes hard caps on income in any shape or form.

So all you'd get is a predominance of tanks that use APCR as standard ammo and make the game boring that way instead.

Solution to the gold ammo problem is to remove standard ammo. Heavy armored tanks would still retain an advantage in ability to bounce rounds, everyone else, just don't get shot. :)

What? APCR in itself its not a prem ammo, an artificially increased pen values that u get under key 2 is prem ammo... whatever shells' name is. When APCR is standard it is accordingly balanced to the tier...... how did you miss that
