Oh man can't wait. If you stock up on it WG stated that they are just going to wait till your stockpile is gone and after that rebalance the shells. Oh man this is huge! I think this is a good thing. But then again it's different for everyone so what do you think?

they are removing the ability to purchase rounds with gold, changing them to "Sprem" silver premium rounds. then later they will run the different solutions through the sandbox and then supertest.... they dont implicitly state that its gone.

Whatever does happen, WG will not lose $$ by their re-balancing of Gold Purchased Premium Ammo, even if they eliminate it entirely. Look for the cost of other items to increase proportionally. It's another "Feel Good" move on their part.

I don't have a problem with gold ammo. I shoot it if I think the situation calls for it but I don't spam it. I think it adds another dimension to the game to make it more interesting. ​Just like Arty and Global Chat hahaha!

Removed??? Sounds to me like their plan is to sell it for credits only and to make it cheaper to buy

Do players really pay gold for ammo?

I have always thought the term "gold" was a carry over from years ago.

I am asking an honest question,no cynicism intended.

I have just assumed they did not,as the subject has never came up while tanking with any one.

 After 1.0 we’ll remove ammo and consumable cost in gold.

 

Don't let your wish get in the way of your reading comprehension.

 

Who buys premium ammo with gold anyways?

Yes... they are simply removing the issue where some players accidentally paid gold for consumables and/or ammo because they failed to check or notice that gold rather than credits was selected in the dialog box as the method of payment.

 

This is a positive move that will keep this mistake from happening anymore.

Reading is hard, they're making changes, not removing. Premium ammo makes them money, not likely they'll remove it.

This was what I thought might be happening when paying gold was mentioned.

I have no doubt that some people do though I would assume the number is small. Actually paying to win is not an issue with many gamers. If you doubt that just consider the success of companies like EA.

I think you are misreading it.  They haven't decided to remove premium shells, just the ability to purchase them with gold.  What happens after is still in discussion.

Gold /Premium ammo needs to be removed from tiers 1 - 3.  It's kinda pathetic to see these players with 10 - 50k games spraying it at everyone on those low tiers like confetti.

They are only removing the option to pay for Premium rounds with gold, this is a c&p from a post I made yesterday:

 

The way I read it they are just removing the gold purchase and making it all an all credit purchase for the premium rounds. As for those who think that premium rounds are going to be removed altogether they are mistaken, while it may be removed in name only they will add a different type of ammo as stated here: "Different types of ammo for different uses (more/less alpha,  more/less pen, maybe some speed changes, etc.), but they’ll feel like a proper different type of ammo for some specific use". If they were to remove the higher pen class of shell then they would have to totally revamp the MM and that is another headache that they won't deal with.

yes they are currently planning to remove the pay with gold option.

afterwards though they intend on finding ways to properly balance it and make armor a thing again.

so hopefully this brings to a close of people just hitting code 22 and getting little to no drawbacks.

Why?? At tiers 1-3 it doesn't do any good anyway since standard rounds will pen 99% of the time. At those tiers all they're doing is throwing away credits.

Yup and yup.

 

I've been playing since 2013 and have never used gold to buy prem rounds. It's always been silver.

What happens after is they will probably increase the cost of premium ammo and possibly reduce the cost of consumables to keep the overall economy balanced for the player on credit sinks vs credit gain. Less sprem spam but more food and directives use etc. This shifts the balance of power to consumables which buffs skilled play whereas increasing the cost of 'skill round' sprem reduces its casual use as overuse will ruin profitability and be a drain even for those that have piles of credits. This allows limited sprem use when you face a superheavy but makes you think twice about shooting something for the 'easy' pen since it reduces the need to aim carefully or eliminates or greatly reduces the effects of a bad rng roll.

I have been play this game since 2014 and at that time GOLD rounds were deemed cheating because not everyone could afford to buy gold or to pay for a premium account. So to keep the game far anyone that shot gold was ostracized in open chat for being unskilled and cheating because all tanks were designed with weak point you just had to learn the game. So WG got rid of open chat and slow with the help of youtuber promoting the use of GOLD round it became more acceptable. So now those who do not have the extra money to buy their wins Get raped in the game by the ones that do: which really SUX for a free game to play. I also understand they need to make the money to keep the lights on. So they gold tanks, and cosmedics, plus premium accounts that they can charge for, just as blizzard dose with overwatch. But WG runs their game more like EA to their player with there Over Power tanks the downgrading of existing tanks make the play feel as if they don't spend money they will never win or at least have a change to be part of the team they are on. For example my M46 Patton was shot by a Obj 140 with an apcr that pinned my mantel by all accounts this should have ricochet off it. The shooting of gold round in game has gotten so bad it begs the quest what is the point of having armor. During the latest event (April of 18)  I took my T95 out and instead of scoring any real point for the missions i got sheared by gold rounds most matches i did not last more then 3 to 4 min in a round because i was to slow and ever round shot at me was gold, that was also the case in my IS7 getting pinned even were my armor was maxed. Gold rounds have taken the fun out of the game as it take no skill just lock and click and you all complain about artillery gold round are is worse.! So here is a Solution Have it player choose to go into battles where gold round are used and battle where you can't use them, this allows for the people that can afford to keep up with the jones and the minor kids that play don't have to feel like they have to spend money on a free game to be part of they team.
