That must be why heavy tanks are so popular, especially on high tier.

You are just a bit confused about what armor does in WoT.

It doesn't meant to make you invincible, it's only there to provide you with additional survivability and only if you use it properly.

Yes, premium ammo makes it harder and sometimes even impossible to use. But hey, there is ammo rebalance incoming (in just a couple of years :trollface:)

You misspelt "venting" in the thread title.

If your armored tank can't reliably withstand gold spam, then it's not armored, it's just powercrept garbage.

As mentioned above, armor's main purpose is to increase your survival when you make errors not to make you invincible to other players. The more armor you have the more you can survive.

Like all things efficient use of armor does require skill. The better you are at using it the more you can survive.

Premium shells do make it harder to use but not impossible. Not to mention that several tanks are already very resistant to standard shells & have no feasible weakspot. Generally these tanks can also resist a fair share of prem ammo shot at them.

 

You can see it daily in the game as heavy armored vehicles are very popular in WoT so it is clear armor gives a powerful advantage else they wouldn't be so popular.

Also I enjoy driving armored heavies & they keep on rocking in my games& continue to collect Steel Walls despite all the prem ammo flying around.

 

PS: Likely this month there is indeed an increase in prem ammo shot as the Holiday events do make it easier for folks to shoot prem ammo without a loss thanks to the credit bonuses provided by said event.

Read up on angling, hull down and side scraping (and pike nose use if you are driving USSR), armour needs to be used right to bounce those APCRs. Unless you are running over stock T44s in a Maus.
