Recently seen a ton of wallet warriors in their brand new tier 8 premiums who fire nothing but premium ammo. Totally ruins the game when they can just throw money at all my well-angled tanks and go through every time. Please limit the amount of premium a tank can carry, and have a minimum game requirement for people to buy premiums. I know WG wants to make money but at least make the game playable when these tomatoes have thick wallets

WG makes their money on those who have thick wallets; you really think WG is going to side with a free player over a paying one?

As I've said before we need a performance trade off to premium rounds instead of cost, because cost can be mitigated by farming.

WG have created a double edged sword.. Some people quit because of the pay-to-win not that some players can't afford it but just as a matter of principle.. Others play tons of tanks and spam gold on the higher tiers because of shot rate..

 

WG should go back to only being able to purchase premium rounds with gold .. In return WG would introduce more and more premium tanks with high pen stock ammo..

If you're getting penned by prem-ammo even if you're "well-angled", then:

  1. You're actually not well-angled
  2. You're in a lower tier tank
  3. Your tank never had decent armor to begin with (mfw I saw a bulldog trying to sidescrape against my JT and it didn't work for him)

Go thru every time?  I must be doing something different.  I have bounced prem rounds and those times I shoot prem I have had them bounce.  You still have to aim to hit or you waste creds.  Selective shots keep the cost down.  Besides, how long would a f2p game last if it did not have a source of income?  Make them cost gold again and there will still be those who have them.  Change the effect of them and part of the cash cow is gone.  We all have to deal with it, you are not the only one.  Luck all, have fun.

Go all gold or go home.

I mainly play lights and glass cannons, and it amazes me how many gold rounds I get hit with. I get that a tank may have a gold round already loaded and then I wiz by and they have to use that, but there is no excuse for shooting me a second or third time with a gold round.

Two patterns I notice is that a) the majority of Defender players always shoot gold, b) blue players shoot the most gold.

What would be the presumed limitations? Even in my worst match-ups and my most ammo-hungry tanks, I'll rarely break 5 premium rounds a game, and I just pay credits. I'm sure I don't have to tell you there are certain times and situations where a gold round is the only answer.

 

But, if you want to limit gold, that's fine. All the heavy tanks from the B2 on up will be very, very happy to run rampant with total impunity. :rolleyes:

Can't say this enough, a gold round is not a guaranteed pen. The times I've used a premium round and it bounces makes me feel like I've done exactly what  WG's business model wants me to do i.e spend money

limiting prem rounds isnt going to make you a better player OP, it would just give you 1 less excuse for your poor play.

  1. If it's important, they are going to fire gold.  So should you.
  2. If you are getting hit and penned, they might have got you with a standard round as well.
  3. Some tanks fire APCR or HEAT as their standard ammo.
  4. If Blue players are shooting all gold, maybe that's how they got that way, or maybe they are trying to go purple.

Just reduce their damage by 30% or so.

When I play an autoloader and am bottom tier, my 1st clip loaded is gold.

Better to lose credits killing a feather-weight, than to lose my tank because I can't pen the heavy-weight.

YMMV

While this may be true for us super heavy players, in the end its not true for reg heavies. Unless certain criteria is meet I never bounce prem in my is7 when dealing with tier 10 (or some 9s) TDs. Most time the criteria is hiding the gaping hole that is the hull but I have had times where it just rinsed my turret as well.

 

Still believe the strv 103 needs a slight pen nerf however.... Once one starts running prem my Maus start hurting no matter my angle.....

Armor is not reliable in any kind of situation. It's simply supposed to act like extra hp. 

 

You should never tank hits unless absolute necessary, or in cases where your teammates need to keep their own hp safe. Otherwise you risk being penned and losing hp.

 

I'm not sure why you think Strv 103 needs a pen nerf. It has the exact same gold pen as the Jagdtiger. 

If it got nerfed in terms of pen, it would be pretty pointless to use it, why bother when you could run type 61 or centurion with same alpha and similar pen? Or Patton/E-50 and spam gold?

I'm starting to feel like they should just remove regular rounds.

Get used to the 'golden shower' because it only gets thicker as you go up the tiers. I find that almost everything I'm hit with is premo in T-IX and X. Its part of the game, stop whining and play the damn game. Its the same for everyone, just deal with it and stop asking to have the game made easier.

 

We have this stupid stun mechanic due to arty whining, there's no telling how the Russian devs would misinterpret your complaint and screw the game up even more in response. Something like a new kind of round that can only be acquired with bonds that cuts through whatever it hits and can through and through up to 3 tanks. Would that make 'gold rounds' more palatable for you? :D
