Hello everyone i would like to try and make wargaming change the way to purchase premium rounds because i feel like there are too many players using them and its really annoying for a normal player like me to play because i dont have the money to always play with premium rounds so why not make them purchasable with gold only like it was before or so i heard.

WG are currently working on changing premium ammo. It will be done this year.

Has it occurred to you that if you make premium rounds for gold it will change absolutely nothing about your complaint because it will still be the players with money that shoot you with gold rounds?

Yeah presumably in the same patch as the Obj430 and 430U nerfs, right?

Well you're also playing tier 5 and below, where prem. rounds are absolutely redundant.

Oh rly?

 

Have you tried fighting a Matilda? Or against an O-I Exp with a 6-pdr? For that matter, Pz B2 only sees III and IV, but I spam Premium ammo with mine and at enemy ones and I get Premium spam back from them. The other day an enemy B1 blocked 2746 HP and just survived as we capped to claim Steel Wall. 

 

Not to mention tier II, III and IV French tanks in general.

Let me rephrase - When you statpad in t67 you dont need prem* 

 

And yes, i have had my fair share of tier 5 games and below.. Matilda and Pz B2 do not require prem ammo. I understand why people do it, but its not necessary. 

 

A guy bouncing 2,8k in the b2 is people not knowing simple weakspots, not the tanks fault, and not an anecdote that shifts anything in what i said. Prem ammo is far less needed in lower tiers.

I really cannot remember which tank I was playing but I'm guessing it was the M15/42 when I couldn't pen anywhere on the B1. It was being engaged by three of us and only the HE of an M2 Medium was achieving anything. I flanked him and shot into his flat sides with no effect. I switched to APCR and still didn't pen even once at point-blank range.

 

As for the Matilda. I was up against one in my St Vz38 and circled him shooting everywhere with and without APCR and iirc, I didn't damage it once.

 

I am not sure about the requirements for Premium ammo in your book, but there are certainly plenty of tough nuts to crack at lower tiers. You may be right about specific weak-spots, and that is fair comment, but surely I should be able to pen the flat side armour of a tank one tier higher.

and yet its fine to get mashed and spammed with big HE bomba that's practically for free compared to the cost of a premium ammo? Pffffff.

Hopefully not. As the result will be a balance mess.

Well i didn't address you with my first comment, so the person i'm referring to as padding in t67, and thus not needing gold, was the initial poster i quoted. 

 

As for the B1 and the Matilda.. The flat sides simply aren't weak spots, so assuming you should just pen it side on is just an idea you have, because this works 90% of the time on other tanks. Yes they are both tough nuts to crack. But thats also the point of them. 

 

My point stands, Gold isn't a need as often as it is higher tiers, so when the person i replied to boasts of only carrying 5 shells, well that is down to him playing at a lower tier in a tank that simply dosen't need it.
