1. Make the prammo storage a third of the size of the standard ammo storage amount
2. Reduce the price of prammo to slightly above that of standard

This will level the playing field and everyone will have to learn to use their prammo for only the toughest targets instead of spamming it willy-billy at anything that moves

Yeah, because it'll just replace ammo complaints with a continous stream of complaints about impenetrable armour.  

NEXT!

I LIKE spamming willy-billy.  Why should my pleasure be denied because some people whine?

so how does this level the playing field? this is just sticking a plaster on it...  what about those tanks that are close to reliant on it for anything that moves? Type 58 and Matilda 4 say hi, among others... 

it doesn't fix anything, you just think it does

Stop complaining.

The problem is not necessarily the complaining itself, but the idea that others should actually listen/pay attention to their complaints.

That is rather the point.  This forum is full of people complaining.  None of their complaints have EVER been addressed.

 

The basic premise is invalid, though typical of the entitled attitude of many people in the world.

 

"I don't like this, it needs to be fixed and it needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY". seems to be the prevalent attitude, accompained by predictions of the end of days if their wishes are not complied with.

 

How it SHOULD be addressed ...

 

"I don't like this.  How can I adapt my playstyle to accomodate this change?"

 

People should be looking for solutions, not changes.

Leveling the playing field doesn't help everyone when some are still dragging behind on their gun. Some spam ammo "willy-billy" for a reason. An extreme example is the Matilda IV with 86 pen. That helps vs AT-8's or O-I's even if you get flak shots if it low rolls. Or when your team has T32's and IS-6 vs theirs VK 100.01 and Defenders or even a Type 4. Then 13 shots won't do much if half of them low pen roll.

 

On the other side 1/3 is not much for some guns, and it will still leave room to go full gold on some targets. As most don't have 1/3 as is now. I still get "gold spammer" PM's with 1/6th even. Sure you have the 183 etc that most def run 50/50 on that would change. But for most... I'm willing to bet it won't change much besides pressing 1 or 3 again when you face a Borsig vs just keeping it on 2 to save it up.

How to stop complaints about Prammo you say?

 

Simple, add the relevant words to the banned word list on the Forum, et voila! :P

That's not a Gameplay issue.   I'd suggest you find someone to love, settle down and raise a family.  Or maybe teach them to play WoT.  Remember - the family the plays together, stays together.

If you are spamming that much "special" ammo, I don't think you are using it correctly.

Except there are circumstances where this doesn't work...

Take T5 Premium Medium Tanks
Matilda BP - Ammo Capacity 55 - Alpha 75, Pen 110 - Damage Potential 4,125HP
Pz V/IV - Ammo Capacity 124 - Alpha 110, Pen 110 - Damage Potential 13,640HP

How can limiting Premium Ammo to 1/3rd possibly be fair for these tanks when one has over twice the ammo capacity to start with ? In a normal game you will probably only fire 40 shots anyway - in the PzV/IV they can be all 'Special Ammo' in the Matilda BP, which has same pen and less alpha anyway, you could only fire 18 Premium Shells

had an idiot the other day complaining to me why I was spamming heat at his precious 279 while I was in a 257. He was also very proud he managed to kill me while being left with under 300hp =)))

 

seriously, these ppl are here to make your day :P

 

p.s. - on a more serious note - as long as WG insist on releasing idiot proof tanks, thank God for gold ammo and arty(if it knows what to prioritize).

I thought the correct way to use gold WAS to spam it willy-billy®.

Especially if said playing takes place in the basement, the traditional home of all gamers (and dungeons). :hiding:

I actually quite like this idea. Ok, not 2 so that's half of the idea....

Forces players to think a bit. 

Tanks like the Matilda BP do just fine with a third premium ammunition. Yes they could do with more rounds overall because the gun is rapid fire and 55 shots often isn't enough but a third with 180 pen vs 2/3rds with 110 limited to tier 5-6?

I don't see the issue. Matilda IV?

Type 58, A43?

There's 20+ rounds each in them. 

20 rounds in a Type 58 is enough to kill a tier 8 heavy and he won't be alone. There's another 14 tanks out there with a third ammo and he's not supposed to brawl it anyway.

A few might need looking at but I'm not really sure which.
