It's just game breaking that people are only using premium ammo, maybe they dont trust their guns enough, or just wants to be bad sport.

Wargaming please do it.

If you were in something with no armour it was going thru anyway so why do you care what they shoot you with? If you were driving something with heavy armour they made the right choice firing premium.

^Wise words speaken from someone who has common sense and is able to use it.

 

Sadly, common sense is not so common 'round these parts.

It's a matter of principle.

 

If someone shoots gold at my paper tank, it's as if they're saying "haha **** you noob I've got a premium account and can afford endless goldspam and you can't haha HAHA AHAHA" and frankly, it pisses me off.

If that's all it takes to tick you off I have to wonder how you function in life in general. :unsure:

They might have run out of standard, they might have loaded the gold for a heavy but you popped into view first, they might be using APCR for the shell velocity rather than the penetration ... there are other reasons. Your taking it so personally is on you. Although if I see you in battle from now on, I'll be sure to load the gold for you. It's a matter of principle.

No, gold ammo is game balancing, not game breaking.

They should make it the same as Console which has a toggle switch to pay using either Gold or Silver.

 

Those without a Premium Account can save their Silver then. :trollface:

Oi! Stop toning up the forum with sensible comments!

 

P.S. Nice clan name - I didn't know you knew our Rusty? Did he let you escape his dungeon or were you just delivering the new supply of duct tape and gimp constumes?

Of course I take all those things into account, but tbh I rarely even get goldspammed in paper tanks. When it's obvious, it's obvious.

I'm intrigued. What makes it obvious?

There are other issues in the game than Prem ammo.

 

1, Map design is utter garbage.

2, MM(please explain how a -2 tier tank is supposed to pen +2 tier tank reliably, and you cant say "flank" because of point 1)

3, Arty. no need to explain

4, EBRs. most average players cant hit them, when you do its probably gonna be a crit hit. they don't get immobilized(just slow down a little) and they get to use auto-aim+ style aiming system.

 

for starters

When there's no other teammates near me for example?...

 

I already said, it's quite rare anyway.

Doesn't mean they're not planning a long shot. If they're firing APCR as their gold shell then that makes it more likely they loaded it for the velocity, not less. Still, if you're convinced they're doing it deliberately and have decided to take umbrage at this imagined slight, there's nothing I'm going to say that'll make you reconsider. Whatever.

Just saying I've seen people say they fire full gold because they can...

 

I dunno what you're trying to prove. I'm always being placed under a bad light...why is that?

And I'm intrigued to why you're so sure. I'm not denying that it happens and you've conceded that it's rare but you're convinced it's deliberate and I'm trying to find out why that is. Seems it's little more than 'the feels' but hey, like I said, whatever.

Not trying to prove anything or shining any light. You made a claim with nothing to support it and I wondered what was behind it as you don't strike me as one of the "everything is bad, I hate this game, I'm only playing another hundred battles and buying three more premium tanks to show WG I mean business before I complain again" players. Whatever.

Are you? Between this post and the earlier one about the full-gold-in-your-face you sound like you have something of a persecution complex going on. Sometimes people disagree with you or do crapyou might not like, that doesn't mean they're out to get you personally. :mellow:

If I'm in a light tank I would prefer to be shot with premium to be honest. There's been many times my tracks have eaten HEAT rounds from big guns that would have easily overmatched my armour otherwise.
