Making so you can only purchase with gold wont help you, you are forgetting the CW players that get tons of gold from there.

Exactly, but there NEEDS to be drawbacks to prem.  And the only logical solution would either to limit the loadout or drop the damage to compensate for the increased penetration.

And no one worth their weight in water in this game can tell me with a straight face that you can't fire all prem and still make money with most prem tanks.  I fire a full loadout of gold in my mod 1 and still make money.  Any other excuse is realistically unacceptable.

The problem is not the use of "gold ammo"; the problem is the use of mods which tell the player they are being hit by premium rounds, causing them to feel wronged in some way.

 

Two possible solutions to alliviate the tears:

1. Don't use that mod, then you won't be upset that it was premium ammo penetrating your tanks, or

2. Don't get hit.

 

If you can't do either, don't cry about gold rounds hitting you in chat or on the forums. If you cry, be prepared to be called out for the whiny child you are.

If you're shot in a tier five by a tier seven with premium shells, the chances are they either have a lower level gun, you're a strong target, they had the shell pre-loaded, or they've forgotten. Very, very few people will purposefully fire APCR from, say, a T29 into an M4, for example.

As for the problem with gold shells... I only see people complaining who don't know how to counter it. I guess that makes sense, but I mean, people never try to help themselves. Gets shot with APCR when AP would do, gets mad, posts to forum without even thinking of possible solutions.

 

And let me say in addition, you shouldn't care if a tier VII shoots your tier V with APCR or HEAT. They're going to pen anyways, let 'em waste a few thousand credits, what do you care?

 

all of that

 

also, more people wanting to go to armoured warfare? isn't that game like completely and utterly dead? I haven't heard people talk about it in months... I played it for a bit and then got bored because it was just copypaste WoT with modern tanks and a slightly different but equally as cancerous arty mechanic (seriously they had one, super easy job to make that game 1000000000x better than WoT and that was to not include arty, but of course they did it anyway and shot themselves in the foot for no reason)

As many players have said on the forums.. you don't need to have a mod to know when some one is spamming prem rounds at you.

True, WG in its infinite wisdom made the impact sound for premium rounds distinctive.

I just love the way players are now just spamming gold rounds in every tank. Then the say you can buy it with silver, need to go back to the old days when players used gold you knew who the wallet warriors were. Wallet warriors does not mean buying premium tanks does not mean you will win, spamming gold when you are a tier 7 into a tier 5 is so called for. I see why more players are talking about going to Armored Warfare just because of the gold spamming. It would be nice to see that the sandbox changes how players use gold rounds.

 

Oh, a clanner suggesting only those who get a gold payout should be able to use premiums.  What next, only gold for premium consumables?  No auto-extinguisher for you peasant pubbies, only for the clan master race!

 

Not buying it.

Then you throw in premium ammunition for sale for silver but it literally has NO drawbacks otherwise.

Other than the fact that shooting all premium ammo make you completely broke in a matter of weeks, it has no drawbacks. That's like saying, "Other than the fact that running into a brick wall might wreck your car there are no other drawbacks."

 

Well duh, there aren't any other drawbacks but there don't need to be, that one drawback is huge and prevents people from doing it.

All you "pro-prem ammo users" seriously fail to see how broken this makes the game.

On the contrary, you fail to understand that making premium rounds available for credits was a good solution to a problem. Having premium rounds that can only be purchased for gold is a pay-to-win feature. Having premium rounds that can be purchased by anyone in the game who has good judgement about how many premium rounds to carry on each tank is a great fix to that problem. And the very few people who "spam" gold rounds are a self-solving problem, they quickly lose the ability to buy ammo or to buy higher tier tanks.

Many players are wrong. Being wrong in a large group doesn't make people right, it just means they are standing with a lot of other wrong people. Facts are not a democracy.

 

People constantly make false accusations of using premium rounds, and that's even with mods in the game. The mods actually encourage the problem because there are a lot of people who don't know which tanks get ACPR a their standard rounds, there are many people who see "ACPR" and just assume someone is firing premium ammo at them.

We upgrade our guns for better penetration and damage

We upgrade our turrets for better armor

We upgrade our radios to shoot at targets further away

We upgrade our engines to go faster

We install rammers to load faster

We install vents to improve our crew's skills

We install Vert. stabilizers to improve our accuracy on the move.

We install optics and binos to see further than our opponent.

We shroud our tank in camo paint and nets to keep from being see.

We carry tool boxes to repair our tanks faster

We install gun-laying drives to aim faster

We even upgrade our chassis to carry all of this

 

But using better ammo is a no-no. :facepalm:

lol so you want to widen the disparity between bad and good players?  Because that is what you will do.  Many good players have gold to burn from CW and tournaments.  I don't know of any bad players that have gold to burn from winning tournaments and CW's.

Since gold rounds have become so plentiful can platinum rounds be far behind? 

 

Seriously use whatever you want, feel like paying for and can afford. I intentionally make silver at tier V to shoot as gold at tier VIII and have no regrets at all. It's part of the game.

If a Tier 7 is shooting premium rounds at my TIer 5 tank, let him. 99/100 he will pen me with AP rounds anyway. Let him waste his 4,800 credits per shot.

I spammed gold from a T29 last night, even in a couple of top tier matchups.  I'm working the stock grind and using the 90mm which has a crappy AP round.  I'm running personal reserves, and I'm trying to shorten the stock grind so my stats in the tank are not depressed long term from the stock grind.  I'm also running a new crew and trying to get them up to 100% as quickly as possible.  In short I'm using premium rounds to turn credits into XP.  To be clear, if I have a soft-shelled target isolated, I'm firing AP or HE, but if I'm brawling with a mix of targets, some if which I want APCR loaded for, I'm just loading APCR.
