If you are driving a paper tank then why does it matter to you?  All they are doing is spending extra credits.

You're right! But I find it strange, seems like everybody is preloading gold. I gave HT playing a try, same problem. I find it a shame that armour is nothing worth these days. Except in my T95 :)

But still . I hope they are going to limit it.

Well i am trying to mark a conqueror currently and i dont see much if any gold shot at me so what kind of game are you playing to be getting hit by gold every time? You sure you aren't exaggerating?

Maybe it's not loaded for you but you were that one that got hit by it, also some tanks carry APCR by default rather than AP.

Standard or special.

Doesn't matter that I'm paper.

Their wallets empty.

 

If it makes you feel any better, I almost always shoot standard shells.

Players have credit bonus for every battle these days due to the Christmas event. So even if they shoot full gold, most of the times they will make money. So it doesnt matter. It has been like this every Christmas event.

Why people spam premium ammo? Because often it's just better. You only have to pay a premium.

I have begun only load perms in all my auto guns because you just do not know what you run into. Would be foolish not to. 

But main reason is because it obviously irritates people.

Armour buffs + aim accuracy reduction introduced some time ago in the first sandbox.

Requested apparently by many many people WG knew, but none that anyone can find.

 

Shooting gold is seen as a more viable way of damaging tanks - regardless of whether that's true or not.

Plus it's easily affordable with all the credits and boosters knocking around.

Its the extra shell velo.

 

Tanks like Maus and T110E4 - I always shoot almost 100% gold, no matter what the target is.

Cannot possibly have anything to do with the fact that a new premium with retarded armour was recently introduced and getting gradually more and more numerous in the battlefields.

I dont care if you have no armor.

If i have APCR as "Special" Ammo, then you will get a Taste of it.

Its not just because of the extra pen - the extra Shell Velocity is nice too.

Better be safe than sorry. ;)

As you can see they shoot it to have a greater chance of doing damage.

It's only limiting factor is the price, and alot of players do not really care about that.

The part that those same shells make it much easier to do dmg, and makes some characteristics of the target vehicle unimportant, well that is something completely different.

 

This is just a case if you cant beat them, join them or just don't play.

Changing tears means nothing anymore, you can get premm spammed in tier 3, or any other.
