As many of us know, prammo spam on the CT is nothing short of a massive issue. In my opinion, it makes it a bit of a joke when it comes to actually being a good testing ground. It tends to heavily nullify armor altogether, and might even ruin suggestions for game balance (I.E. it could lead to requests to heavily buff armor, since the "heavily armored" tanks get buttered by endless spam.)

 

Thus, I feel that the test server, and ONLY the test server, should have premium ammo cost gold. You can't buy things on the test server, which means that players would be forced to choose how they used their gold- will they use it for fully trained crews and camo right off of the bat for their Tier Xs, or will they sink it into premium ammo that will swiftly drain them? By doing this players will have to choose, and it will play a critical role in salvaging the test server's usability as a means for the developers to get player feedback that will better balance the game.

 

Again, this should ONLY apply to the test server, as the inability to make purchases on it removes any pay to win elements. Once you're out of gold, you no longer get premium ammo, and since people would have to vary their ammo loadouts we'd get a better server. The prammo would still be used and tested on newer tanks, yet it wouldn't be the main ammunition fired and thus would allow for standard rounds to also undergo testing.

Naw, they give you a ton of gold too. Better to just remove it on the test server.

It's a catch all term for premium ammo.

The issue is that it won't be tested at all then, which is still bad.

Rebalance it. Hiding it behind a paywall or increasing the amount of credits needed to buy it will do nothing.

You get a limited amount of gold on the test server; 20K IIRC. Gold rounds cost 20 gold to load individually, so if you loaded a full set of prammo on any vehicle you'd drain yourself very quickly.

The test server has a purpose you know.

There should be two seperate test servers, one with only standard ammo and the other with only premium ammo. 

  

Balancing in that setup should be so much easier

I'm a bit unsure on that. It'd heavily divide the CT server pop.
