This is an annoying element to the game. Its rare thankfully.

So far, I've run out of ammo completely with my AMX 13 75 two or three times and once in the T-54 First Prototype. 

 

Thankfully its been at the very tail end of a battle where my empty barrel did not affect the outcome of the game.

 

Share some stories on which tanks you ran dry with and how it made for interesting games for you.

I ran out of ammo many times. One time I ran out of ammo and won by capping.

A handful of times in my Type 59 before it got the ammo count raised.  Every now and then on really long games in my T49 I get to 1 or 0 shells left.

 

Shot myself dry in the Comet once (before the 3/5/7) when I was the only tier 7 in the entire match.  

 

I can't recall any other time, but I've had several matches where I've been to 5 or less shells at the end.

​you really have to be careful with the French autoloaders since the ammo is scarce and you can mop up if you survive and have some ammo left at the end of the battle.

I did this myself once in my Hetzer. 1 v 1 against a camping Matilda on Widepark. I was totally out of ammo but managed to find a bush in cap and the Matilda couldn't spot me in time for some reason. I'm pretty sure he was clueless.

 

Otherwise, I've run out of ammo several times in my T67, E25 and I'm sure a french light tank or two. All you can do at that point is look for a one-ram kill.

Does getting ammo racked count?

in general, no they're not.  :/

 

1.0 maps are just lipstick on a pig.  pretty much the exact same meta play on all of the pretty maps

12t before the changes a few times.  Some arty a few times.  The old SU-5 before tier 9 & 10 arty were introduced comes to mind.  At least once in the T-43 because I have a Fadins in it, though really that's not running out of ammo. 

 

Good list by Pig as some of those come to mind as well.  Pz38na as well a few times. Probably cause I use the 4.7 for aimtime.

Back when the 4005 had less ammo capacity I'd run out of shells now and then. It wasn't super frequent because matches rarely last long enough to go through that many shells on a twenty-four second reload, assuming you always had something to shoot at.

The closest I've come in a very long time was running down to 1-2 shells in the Conway.
