After many years of playing WOT I have decided that as of now the game should be renamed WOPTW.

 

In other words WORLD OF PAY TO WIN.

 

Now, before you all grab your pitch forks and start poking me. Let me explain. I have no problem with gold ammo in the game nor with the fact that you can buy it with

credits. But WG has made almost all gold ammo on almost all tanks totally OP. When I regularly see (i.e. in almost every match) tanks like JTs, VK1001Ps and T30s using nothing

but gold rounds on lower tier opponents then there is a problem. Even the stock guns on the 3 tanks I mentioned DO NOT need to use gold to pen any part of a lower tiered opponent.

 

When I'm in an O-Ho and a T25/2 hit the "2" key it makes sense but not when tier 9s with monster penetration and alpha damage guns do it. 

 

As a former US Army Tanker I can tell you ammo selection was a consideration in our training. We wouldn't use a SABOT round on an APC. (Unless that was the round already loaded. But then the next round order

would be HEAT.)

 

IMO, WG has become a company that ONLY cares about money. When it comes to WOT. 

 

Oh, sorry I mean WOPTW.

well "2" key ammo can be purchased with silver so you dont actually pay. Premium tanks are not automatic win tanks. Players who get premium time dont get a 100% wrs. Seems like salt to me.

I mean I've only started playing recently, but you're right the game should be renamed. In fact it should be given an award with the same name.

aaaaaaaaand with that your thread lost all credibility because WG earns nothing from gold shells since no one actually spends gold to buy them.

and yet premium ammo can still bounce if you do not aim and hit a bad spot

Pretty sure you can be selective when to use those premium rounds and still use them when you need them and frequently enough without ever paying any real money.  Also, there are plenty of tanks in the tech tree that are just as good as the premium ones.  So as far as "pay to win" goes, I don't think that phrase really applies to WoT at all.

Pay to win is normal now

When skorpian G  as top tier still shoots gold ammo at tier 6 tanks

Give the tank all large consumbales with food and all gold load out means your chances to win are  a lot higher if you play correctly

Pay for bonds and get the better euiqpment 

Not hard really

2 THINGS:

 

1. This isnt "world of historical accuracy". The fact that you served has no bearing here.

 

2. I will not change my name.

Premium ammo is prohibitively expensive for the vast majority of players unless they have a premium tank & a premium account.

So, just out of curiousity...how long would this game last...if NOBODY paid for anything?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand you are naive enough to believe that with the amount of gold now flying around the game that WG is NOT making money of that? I think YOU just lost all credibility.

If you look at the percentage of bounced shots by gold ammo as a whole over the last say 6 month I'm pretty sure you would find the vast majority of them DON't bounce.

I'm not suggesting that it should be a totally free to play game. Companies don't survive that way. But there is this little thing called "Game Balance" that WG as of recent has chosen to ignore. IMO.

What part of "players don't buy gold ammo with gold" do you not understand?

The part where you are saying it and I'm pretty sure YOU DO NOT speak for ALL players. And since you CAN still by gold ammo and credits for that matter with real money I'm pretty sure a lot of people probably do.

 

Your attempted at an argument is to make an ASSumption that YOU know how all players are playing the game.  Which I'm sure you don't.

 

Attempted at credibility restore: DENIED

..........dude give it a rest. Ranting on and on isn't gonna change a thing. Jeez I thought I was new to the game and you get players like this guy with 7 years experience complaining about a "problem" that's been the year for quite some time.
