Hear me out. How about we only allow gold ammo access to the lowest tier tanks of each game? That way it'll only be used to give those players a fighting chance. Thoughts?

Yes, please.

 

This would mean single-tier matches would not be able to use gold ammo. :ohmy: Good.

Is not reason enough to not fix the game.

Nerf the tank instead, obviously.

Really don't know why after all these years so many people are still asking WG to exercise some form of balance and fairness when they've done nothing but show the opposite all this time. Bottom line: WG don't care what we want. Once they decide something, it stays. Its how they do things from where they're from. It's not right, but try convince them of that.

BTW checked your stats... gold ammo is the least of your problems...

So you pick a tank, adjust the ammo load, lets say 50-50 AP and APCR, and then click battle.

MM decides you are to be top tier in that battle so you end up with only 50% of your ammo? Or do you want the game to automatically replace the APCR with AP? 

And the game will have to do that with all the other players in the top and middle tiers for that battle.

I'm not sure you have thought this through.

Ah...you're right, they're just gonna buff everything else instead. Drat.

This particular idea was probably suggested because gold ammo makes damage blocking missions almost impossible to complete.

You hate people grinding stock tanks, don't you?

Because his stats are what this thread currently deals with, right?

Yeah and while we are being stupid, why not remove all classes and have 1 tier, with 1 tank, 1 gun, and HE. No crew skills, no equipment, gold ammo whiners can then rejoice.

What were your stats like when you were at 7 thousand battles?

 

Mine were even worse...

only way this would work is if we had multiple "loadouts" that automatically changed depending on the battle you end up in. but having a loadout for -2, -1, same tier, +1, +2 for every single tank in the game, for every player? that would be some mad data storage on top of whats already held...

 

 

cant imagine it would be much use to some tanks though. stuck firing only AP in a Type 58? would be one way of being utterly useless I guess :amazed:

I think just make it no XP if gold ammo used on lower tier tanks. That way they just completely waste their money and have nothing to show for it

Why not just make Premium ammo more pen but less dmg than standard?

Has been tested and ditched as it breaks the game.

 

Also even thinking about it should indicate why:

1. lowering damage doesn't change the reason as to why its used, therefor leads to more prem spam not less.

2. breaks the game as the way the game is "balanced" prem ammo is a necessity. being -1/-2 would be even worse as you are now even more at a disadvantage. Same goes for stock grinds.

3. even more tears would be shed over increasing ammo costs.

 

Right now the best course of action is to leave it as it is and just ignore the crybabies. As only a full rebalance/rework of armor/accuracy etc would allow changes to prem ammo.... even so said crybabies would then find something new to shed tears over. Its like pandering to activists, you never win anyways so why bother.
