Well
As long as everyone is shooting gold

And most people here saying that its normal, They using gold only for velocity etc

I am going to shoot only gold, As long as game economics giving me full access to it.

Sitting on 60 mil credits, and probably  60 more in consumables. And yet most of my tanks have at most 50 % gold load out, depending on ammo capacity and gun. And even then i only shoot prem ammo when i need too.

 

Might be the thing that holds be back from becoming a  unicum:) and not my limit of skill. "wink wink" "sarcasm"

Sure, as long as you don't need credits to buy tanks in the tech tree.....or....you can just fire it only when you think it might be needed on tough nuts to crack like most players.

Use it as an experiment. Records you battles and result, and show the effect of pure premium spam.

 

With a bit of luck you end up trying hard and actually improving as well as an added bonus (even though that would kind of ruin the experiment).

It depends on what tier he plays. Some of the low tiers have gone up by a few 100K to fill up with gold. Pz 1c was 350K, it's close to 600K now iirc.

How about prem tanks?

30-40% are shooting gold from them

I have enough tanks to shoot some

Haven't used gold on my panther M/10 only one time when I get 3 marks

Good luck facing him in his new setup ...

Imho the main problem with shooting only gold is that you ... shoot less. Kind of expensive to blind shot or snap shot like a madman when you know the price.

and you'll quickly discover you were totally wrong about gold ammo all along by how little difference it will be in determining the result of each battle. Pity more gold whiners don't actually play shooting only gold for a while.

Look I kinda agree with what Wargaming says.

 

Gold shells at higher tiers for big guns is usually about x4 the price of a standard shell. Now if you take on a heavily armored target, say Maus, you must shoot gold because if you fire only standard shells then you are bleeding credits.

But shooting gold even when you don't have to, then you must either be trying to get maximum use maybe because you are trying to 3 mark the tank, or you are just an idiot.

Learn how to aim and actually enjoy the game. Stop hating on gold spammers. There's a reason a lot of tanks are obsolete these days. Just accept it and move on.

 

This is a game. It is meant to be a fun activity to fill your free time. If it is too much to handle then just find something else that you enjoy.

In fact, take a note of your average win rate and damage before and after then tell us your findings.

inb4 you get balanced by the stupid accuracy mechanics and all your shots get eaten by tracks, even if you never even aim at the tracks, they'll just go there anyway.

I played like a year without any gold ammo, sometime from the beginning of the 2019 to Christmas 2019. As a compensation I loaded a bit more HE to at least annoy targets I had no chance to pen frontally :D , when I also didnt have a good chance to flank them. 

 

Call me sadomasochyst, but after like maybe a first month of struggle I enjoyed it, and it was really a positive experience for me in some ways. Part why I wanted to try it was that I really like Foch who plays like this, but I can honestly say that non-gold play improved my aiming and knowledge of weakspot A LOT. And it did not drop my winrate, which is ofc because of my number of battles is my winrate is more or less stable on 53,75 % (might try to get to 54 with low tiers :trollface:  ), but to my surprise it also did not drop my winrate on specific tanks, and if some of my tanks dropped its more because of my sometimes very mediore play especially on tier X mediums. I still carried food tho, to improve gun handling, and well everything. 

 

It helped me with aiming and better weak spots knowledge as I mentioned, but also gave me something like a new mindset when I see target I cannot pen, but could maybe with "WN8 rounds" , more options - just ignore the tank for now, wait when he gets distracted, leave the flank with fast tanks and go somewhere else, ...

 

Then after new year I loaded some gold rounds back, but it was like maybe 15 % on every tank, for emergency situations, but then I found that I was never loading then anyway, so I sold them all and made pretty decent credits :D

 

 

Now I moved even further and play with no gold rounds, and with auto-fire extinguishers instead of food. Again, call me sadomasochyst but I found some enjoyment in trying to aim at weakspots properly, ... and all that. Again as I already mentioned, I loaded bit more HE instead of 2-2 rounds, and found something you could say interesting. HE rounds on Mauerbrecher are sometimes pretty competitive. Shooting hulldown defender on range where you cant wait to aim at cupola because of your tumor, 200 damage every shot. Even had fight against S.Conqueror hulldown, hitting him for again about 200 into weaker turret places, and after battle I found I almost crippled his entire tank :D

 

 

edit: There is one tank on which I still carry gold ammo, and that is the "amazing piece of art" blyet prince that I play sometimes for some nostalgia. If I didnt have any gold on this great tank it would be like - oh enemy top tier is O-NI, oh no i cant pen him anywhere frontally, at least he cant me either into hulldown, oh no he has derp gun, sorry team for loosing this for you.

I guess given that we all can see how many premium rounds actually get shot at us our luck is probably that we somehow get numerous battles without much gold being shot at us while the OP mysteriously always gets shot at with premium ammo.

In fact he gets pelted by so many premium rounds that he kept forgetting to show us consecutive replays to proof his claim.

Good for you. As a 50% player currently I look forward to seeing you achieving a 60%+ WR over the next few weeks and proving beyond any doubt that spamming gold is the way to achieve Unicumhood and those sweet, sweet purple WN8 numbers.
