Pay for a premium tank that needs gold rounds only to find out they get nerf'd a couple of months down the road or that the price gets jacked up so you have to buy a premium account.

 

That be funny.

Would make no difference to me.  I'll still shoot APCR to penetrate and I'll still spend the silver to have them.  

 

And I might run 60% standard, 20% HE, 20% premium.  I'd still keep that load out.

I am waiting for everyone to be forced to pay for improved or premium RNG, screwing the ammo will only make things even worse and cause more players to walk away.

That would be a terrible thing to do,only rich spoiled kids would be able afford them.As for nerfing them,they wouldn't be worth the credits.Also high tier tank players would be doomed,they fire prem. as thier main round.Just a bad idea all 'round.They have nerfed to many things in the last few months, at least we still have premium rounds.

I won't and need to delete the outdated client, I am doubtful that ships will be viable because of the same practices.

You're kinda throwing me off there.  

 

Saying WoWp (World of Warplanes) is outdated, makes sense.  And the fact of paying for premium rounds in that game is very awful (you can only load one to of ammo for each gun type).  

 

But then you bring up ships, as in World of Warships, which does not have premium rounds.  You have signal flags you can use but they are given out enough that you really do not need to spend tall money to buy them.

The WG equivalent of the federal Reserve's interest rate hike? I suppose just like in real life, the ones who are broke in credits will spend less gold rounds, while the ones who are sitting on multi million in credits will continue to spam gold and won't change anything.. 

 

Maybe we'll get our very own occupy WG protesters camping out across SerB's office?

It's funny because thats what people are forced to do now.  That's what gold rounds are, Improved RNG.

I'm all for increasing price of premium rounds and hope they do it.

It wouldn't matter what it costs for premium ammo.My favorite tank is the T54 and I run mostly HEAT so what ever the cost I would keep running it.Its the tank that I have the most fun in and it's frankly the most complete meduim tank in this game .If the grim reaper had a tank the T54 would be it so yeah what ever the cost:)

I imagine that tanks with horrible standard pen would become less popular.  Those with good standard pen and/or armor would become more popular.

Wouldn't bother me at all as I've only ever used it on some painful grinds and I've finished all the worst grinds in the game.
 

I still think they need to address gold rounds itself rather than overbuffing the armor on some vehicles to where they make it painful to play some tiers.

It should be limited to four shells per tank from tier six or seven and up. You don't need it below that. It gives you a trump card if you're unwillingly pitted against something your standard rounds have no hope of penetrating. At the same time it removes the crutch that so many god damn people rely on. For auto loaders reduce the damage on each premium shell so they don't do any more damage than a single tank can. That way single fire players can't argue that the auto loaders have a distinct advantage.
