here is an easy solution to the gold ammo problem:

every gold shell costs double the previous one.

they can only be bought, shot or sold, not stored.

Erm - No.
Stupid Idea.

@eekeeboo
When will there be the next 50% consumable discount?
Also we didnt have a prem ammo discount for ages now. Why?

If anything that will only increase the gap between new and old players. Old players have 100 mill on their account after a year of FL and won't care. New players.... less so.

you should not generalize that much - I only have 21 million because my food stock went empty. :-(

honestly the best solution is to lower the dmg by a lot. I don't mind the pen because you shouldn't be able to press 2 to win.  There should be risks to every reward.

The premise of gold ammo is to help stock tanks fight higher tiers.

 

By this logic, it would make the most sense to remove gold ammo from the top researchable gun on each tank.

 

This would remove gold ammo from tier 10 tanks too. You honestly don't need gold ammo at that tier, you only need to know how to aim...this game is way too dumbed down...

But when you load Gold in an E-100...it's a bounce....so, no difference.:teethhappy:

Not a good idea.

 

maybe limit prem ammo to 50%

but then let all vehicles have access to all ammo types.

What should I do with ARL-44 without 105mm APCR?

What should the AMX-40 do without prem ammo?

 

No, it would require a complete hp/Armor/ ammo rework across all tiers or the game would be even more imbalanced than it is now with all those spamgettos, 260 and whatnot

You know the 15cm got buffed to match the 12,8cm gun's pen, right? Also, the Maus has the same pen, and it's doing fine. All the other heavies have more pen, further proving my point.

Maybe this maybe that...and nothing gets done.

 

ARL-44 would have apcr on 105mm because the 90mm with 212 pen is the top gun. Highest standard pen at tier 6 bro... The apcr on the 105 actually has more pen than the 90mm's standard pen. So it becomes an option, you wanna empty your pockets for the lolz or play the game proper? Most would play proper.

AMX 40 trades pen for more alpha, and has armor. It's like the Maus mentioned above.

 

Requires no changes to hp/armor. It would only make the game fairer for tanks with armor meant to bounce shells when angled, not get swiss-cheesed with gold all the time...

Do you think WG wil care for this idea?

 

Hmm I don't see it somehow.

 

Just take standard ammo out of the game, job done

E100 got buffed?
I must have missed that.

Regarding 90mm on ARL-44 - no sane person is using that as the 90mm in that tank is truly a diva and lacks Alpha in comparison to 105mm APCR.

I am very sceptical regarding the proposed reworks as it will make some special russian and reward HT even harder to damage.

They said they would do something soon about the prammo spam but seems all they wanted to do is try to prop up the falling numbers by gimmick content.

I have had a month off the game came back for a few battles today only to be hit by mostly prem ammo in the few battles I played so I think it should be 2 months this time.

As for a solution that's their problem they created it.

I believe it was because WG deemed it was too useful, too good, or both.
