It's too painless to just switch to premium ammo whenever I encounter a tank with armor.  Make premium ammo cost 5X as much silver, and I won't be able to earn as much unless I use less premium ammo.  I think this would help tanks with more armor like the heavy german lines, and the is4 line.

 

Back when it only cost gold I never used it.  Then when silver was hard to come by I only used it some.  I also didn't get hit with it as much.  But now with the credit boosts and all the missions and campaign silver rewards, the silver cost of premium ammo is no longer painful.  I'm using it more, and the people shooting me are also using it more.

Spot on, can also confirm back when gold ammo started using silver it was damn expensive to use.

Gold ammo should be used sparingly and the price should reflect it.

have you heard that "soon™"  Premium ammo will no longer be able to be bought with gold? and then "after that™" they can rebalance premium ammo, without having to give back gold/(real money)

They could make Premium Ammo do less damage

 

I mean

 

APCR in real life will do less shatter damage than regular armour piercing

 

It will make players have to sacrifice DPM for a pen gain

But that does require the players to think instead of pressing the number 2 when a single shell bounces.

Good, we need players to learn to think.

 

Edit: AND it would punish those who can't or won't put the effort into thinking

Wargaming:

 

Good Amour: Can't be penned

 

Weakspot: Can be penned, provided you are a tier 10 TD firing premium ammunition

 

Tells the players:

 

Da! Do not worry davaresh! Flank tank!

 

No no! Not flank to side! Side armour is also stronk, flank to rear! Then fire premium!

 

;)

I just love it when someone comes up with an "original" idea to fix the game, but they really don't give it much thought.

So I spent 15 mins on VB addict to gather some data. Petty I know but I had the time.

 

So you want premium ammo to cost 5x standard ammo. Here is how it works out currently based on the top 10 tanks played in last 30 days.

 

Tank                                                  STD round cost             Prem. round cost        AVG            game played

RHM Skorpion G                                       1070                              4800                    4.49                302,094

T-44                                                           1025                              4800                    4.68                197,256

IS-3                                                            1025                              4800                    4.68                175,953

Obj 257                                                      1180                              5200                    4.41                154,439

Lowe                                                          1030                              4000                    3.88                137,496

IS                                                               1025                              4800                    4.68                134,130

Bat Chat 12t                                                210                              3200                   15.24                131,666

Obj 430                                                       840                               4400                    5.24                129,814

T-10                                                           1065                              5200                    4.88                 128,613

Strv S1                                                       1160                              4800                    4.14                 126,866

 

So as you can see, just looking at these tanks as a sample the avg cost difference between STD and Prem rounds is 5.6x.

I don't need prem ammo costing more silver. I don't make enough money as it is.

 

And I don't use premium unless I absolutely have to.

I believe the OP meant to increase the cost of premium round by 5 times what it is now, so approx 20-25K per round.  I'd hope that was just hyperbole.

No

 

The state of the game right now for anyone interested in high tiers practically requires the use of gold ammo. There is just too many tanks with questionable armor profiles and thickness its changed the landscape of the game too much.

Guess what it was you the pubbies / scrubs that yelled at WG to allow Gold rounds to be able to be bought with silver, and look now your yelling again.

 

Should have just left it the way it was gold for gold only. Non supporting/paying players shouldnt have access to anything that costs real money period
