I was playing today with my friend and 2/3 of the players are playing full gold (which is not fun), and i thought if wargaming could remove gold ammo for a month or a week, idk.
It would be great to see how players react to it

If 'we' had single Tier battles I would say yes but otherwise no.

Maybe not a month, maybe a week as an experiment. Obviously you'd see 279e's roll out en masse so I'd avoid tier 10 tbh.

I would suggest to implement a EU3 for those "tests". Who wants can test this, who does not, can play on EU1 and 2 and on the playercount on these servers we can see if the players like an idea or not. There are for sure other things that can be tested, too.

It won't make any difference. All the players with high win rates already maintain those winrates while facing the same amount of gold being fired at them as you do. Don't get shot, it's 100% effective at negating gold rounds.

What about removing it in tier 10 then?

And what do you think you would get out of that experiment?

Oh yes, lets make the Object 279e "literally impossible to fight against" instead of just "horrible to fight against". What could possibly go wrong.

 

At least Type 5 would be good again for a month, so thats something. Good in a bad way, though; it would remind me that how terribly designed Type 5's current armor layout is and it'd just make me sad.

I would like to know if you actually spend a second to think this suggestion through, meaning to think about what the outcome of your suggestion would be.

Cause its either coming from a completely biased point of view or you didn´t even waste a second to think about it, probably just a suggestion born out of a mood after someone covered your tank in prem ammo.

Hey, if you think your 112 with 186 pen will work vs 220 and 250mm of armor on in +0 and +1 games. Then let's go.

My WZ-111 does.

 

Thing is, I actually, you know, do this thing called "aiming", sounds weird, I know, but it works.

You would still be a terrible player.

No, 2/3 of players don't play full gold. I play tier X on 4k average damage and I don't load full gold either. Because you don't need to and because HEAT gets stuck on walls and spaced armor.

Why instead of complaining, you wouldn't just do the same as others, load 10 gold rounds for your tanks just in case. I don't have as good crews as you because I have played less, you see me complaining how 7 skill crews are superior to 3 skill crews? Not everyone can afford equipment for their tank either. If gold ammo was pay to win as it used to be, I would understand. Sure I don't mind if WG did something clever like limiting gold ammo and then lowering the cost to same as standard ammo so everyone can load gold when needed, even newcomers but removing it doesn't work neither nerfing the alpha damage in nowadays wot. And quess WG could buff some tanks' armor in exchange of gun or mobility nerfs just to make weakspots a bit smaller or harder to pen with best in class penetration.

I love those rare occasions where I drive my IS-6 and a Defender drives into my face thinking he can snack on me.

The poor sod doesn't know his own achillesheel. :trollface:

No. I don't use much of it myself, but removing it for a month would achieve nothing, in my humble opinion.

I see all Dingers have been ordered to vote NO or face expulsion from the clan :)
