Just take it with a gain of salt. Previous posters have explained the main reasoning, mostly this past holiday giveaway/specials... etc.

 

I used to get really pisses when someone fired Gold at me after their first initial shot. Now I just laugh it off especially if they can pen me with it.... and if they can pen me without it and their gold shell bounces. I just imagine their tears !

 

In all seriousness, in the end just try to get shot less, I know easier said than done but it is the best option. Lets all be real... I'm sure everyone here would be way more pissed off at a 360, no scope, no aim, shot that hits from 600m away while the enemy tank is in the air rolling over... and it his YOUR weakspot. That is way worse than gold.

 

Cheers!

I have premium + 48% holiday bonus. I make credits even if I spam gold in T10s and considering the amount of gold that is fired back at me I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

The dead giveaway of whether or not the player is an idiot is if the second and third shots are also gold on a tank that anything can pen.

That explains the first shell...

Sometimes, people forget what they have loaded.

 

Happens to unicum streamers and youtubers too.

Sometimes?  90%+ is NOT 'sometimes'.

There's rarely any reason not to shoot gold. As time passes, credits become less important for the server on average. Ergo, gold spam becomes more prevalent. Theoretically, we could reach a point where non gold ammo is never fired again.

To answer OP it's probably cause of the Christmas bonus that everyone is spamming gold but you can buy it with credits too, and everyone got a boat load of premium tanks if they bought the boxes not too mention some may have bought premium time.

 

To the other posters saying it makes them laugh or question someone's intelligence just cause they shoot gold who cares? If he sends you back to the garage before he does he already did his job, and helped his team win. Gold or no gold I personally don't care, and play expecting to get penned no matter what. Using cover, angling, and meat shields to keep myself alive so that he's dead before I am is the goal. Goal is to win. Not making sure you don't hurt their feelings, or give a crap if they think you're dumb or not. Dead is dead, and if you get taken out of the freaking game due to gold or otherwise then he did his job. So get off your high horses.

we must not be watching the same streamers.  a small handful spam it in certain tanks, or for example whilst 3 marking tanks.

 

most that I watch don't spam premium rounds

Oddly enough, was running my Tiger 131 for the credit booster mission and well after our engagement had ended, I noticed a KV-1 had shot me with six straight rounds of Premium Ammo.  In the moment, I don't pay much, if any attention.  They can get an monster RNG-roll or press the skill key ... it's all the same, really.

 

Not entirely unreasonable there, Tiger can be hard for T5s to pen if you decide to angle.

That's the basic problem with gold. In that situation, the HT6/131 might bounce standard ammo but they'll never bounce gold, even on a low pen roll.

Meh, it's a German box tank, can still sidescrape ricochet anything if it has to.

Are you serious?  No one uses gold to buy premium ammo.... do they?

 

Biggest mistake WG ever made....letting the WoTards buy prem ammo with credits...

95% of all posts claiming that 95% of all rounds fired at someone are made up.

 

the other 5% are posted by people playing the Maus or Type5

 

87% of all stats are made up on the spot.   100% true :);) lol

Right, make it pay to win. That way only those who can afford it can use it and those who can't are at a disadvantage when that upper tier heavy comes after them.

Agreed, making it available for credits was a good decision imo. Then it really would be a honest too goodness pay to win game. Tigers can still be surprisingly bouncy even against gold rounds.

So over the past 2 weeks or so I've noticed an incredibly steep increase in the amount of gold rounds that are being shot in most of the tiers I play (7-10). Admittedly I don't pay much attention to the patch updates, news articles, ect. So my question is did I miss something that is driving people to use more gold rounds, or is wot just going through one of its weird phases where everyone starts using gold rounds? I typically don't mind gold, however when 90-95% of the shots fired at me are gold I do raise an eyebrow.

Thank you for filling me in on whats going on!

None will use ap or he anymore . the best pen are apcr . so i stooped playing this game about this ammo and cheat mods on this game . the true right now lots of people using it 95% player on this game using it after noobwarrior passed on twitch and many other player streaming his own game with illegals mods showing the links . be never be banned with the mods . people did download . on the link for illegals mod for usa server did count 13.011 ppl did downloaded creazy . after why we die so fast and we cant not explain . he know when you aims cause laser he hiding  behind building with x-ray he know you aims him when your turret will turn other ways he come shoot you . broken trees or rock or balding he know you coming he wait you and you got bullet in your face . for sniper far far away the poll .

I suspect it has more to do with the 48% credit boost, people shoot nothing but premium rounds and still turn a profit. It should die off a bit come Monday.

 

I agree. It supports the argument that this game has morphed into a pay to win model. When the wot holiday boost has expired players who either with their wallet or other wot related inducements will continue to spam gold at a higher frequency then your average player does, who cannot compete at that level of premium round usage if they want to grind credits for purchasing new tanks, which every player wants to do. This disparity makes this game a pay to win game. Those that spam prem rounds are quite aware of this which is why they do it, knowing it will give them the advantage that their opponent cannot possibly compete with. The solution? Who knows? But lets call it for what it is.
