Why do people make gold-round accusations?

Background:
Using my new tier 9 US heavy, recently upgraded the turret. I lucked out and most enemy tanks were busy with my other team members.
I had to go toe to toe with an e-100 when I realized our team was getting outnumbered and I know you guys will probably see I should have played differently/better in certain aspects.
I got top gun. Survived. Made it to cap. We won. Team starts congratulating each other.  :Smile_great:

Problem:
Got accused of using gold rounds at the last second. Not cool. He's just joking? Still takes away from the great game I had. <_<

Here is the replay if you want to see how I got the kills and that e-100 without using gold.
Gold rounds....nope!

I wouldn't worry about it, actually take it as a compliment.

Pfft, I regularily get 4-6 kills in the M103, it's an awesome tank. Gold would just be overkill.

Unusual in that someone of your own team said that.  Usually it's someone you killed.

Bah! E100 has so many weak spots, why would one need gold rounds to kill one?

Since the M103 uses HEAT rounds as gold rounds, the M12 doesn't know what he's talking about unless there were gold sparks that showered out of the penetration holes of the E-100.

What if you did? Gold rounds dont make you any more of a better player... its no different than someome who uses gold to train up crews or convert xp to get modules.If anything gold rounds are the least of the shortcuts in getting a better tank.

My thoughts exactly, any smart player will keep a few gold rounds stocked for critical situations. Its actually very historical, tanks did carry a few special rounds in real life for the same reason.

How could it take away from a great game. That accusation ADDS! to a great game when you didn't really use any. You make the common mistake of thinking the person you just killed is a normal human being and not the basement dwelling troll who becomes less of a person when he dies in online tanks.

Why would you even need to use gold rounds with a 269 penetration gun? I did a 1v1 last night with a smartarse I met in game. M103 vs. M103. He bounced several shots, I didn't. Of course, he tells me I must be using gold rounds. I sent him the replay that showed I didn't.

I think he just didn't know how to aim. The M58 gun has NO problems penetrating any tank in the game except for maybe a T95's front armour.
