so I stopped playing this game last year because I had to train to become a police officer didn't work out , so I got a normal job saved up and bought a new PC for gaming because my laptop died ( RIP Jack I really hated you). I came back to the game and I lost my old account so I made a new one and because I have a job (soon I won't have one sadly) I bought a few things to help me get back in the game (didn't buy any tier 8 thou not good enough for that level) and I notice people use a lot of gold rounds like a lot even when they don't need it, example am driving my light tanks and the top tier meds are using gold even when all their facing is only light tanks and at times it gets really annoying like because Armor doesn't really work for lower tier tanks. a lot of the times I stop playing because of that.

And the low rolls God I was playing my IS using the 100mm gun and it does 250dmg so am shooting the udes and it was on like 205hp and I was expecting to kill it but no, I rolled for 195 like how is that fair and it happens far too often with Russian tanks mostly (that's what I notice )so yeah that's it. what you guys think?

I think that you should worry more about your real world issues than your pixel issues.

Gold rounds are in the game in most tanks nowadays I carry 45/45/5 % for my ammo because if I'm fighting meds or lights I want the shell velocity but if I'm fighting anything with armour than it is right to the heat.

I don't understand... If you are playing lights and it doesn't matter what they shoot because any ammo will pen you then why would you care whether they are shooting expensive ammo or cheap stuff?

Wouldn't it be more logical to want them to waste their money? Wouldn't you prefer that they waste their premium ammo on you so maybe they won't have it available when they actually need to kill your teammate heavy?

 

Low rolls don't bother me because it affects my opponents just as much as it affects me... I have won games because my opponent low rolled when he tried to kill me.

I was going to  get into the conversation, but sounds like you've already made up your mind.

 


 

So, my advice is play your tank, let others play theirs.

Prammo is a game mechanic, if people want to use it who cares.

If they can use it exclusively and be credit positive, God bless em! I can't.


 

RNG can be extremely frustrating, but it also allows for some epic shots and pens that shouldn't have.

We tend not to notice when it benefits us, only when it detracts.

1. It's Premium ammo now, not gold. Buy with credits only.

2. Is use up? Sure, maybe. Does it matter? No. Why? Even a Premium ammo shot gets bounced. Premium ammo is no guarantee to penetrate. It's just lest likely.

yeah but that's all they have gold rounds so it doesn't matter if they waste it on me. I even see bad players using it thinking it will help them get better .

yeah but not if you're in a lower tier tank say like tier 6 and you meet tier 8 , tell me how many times you bounce

I see people tell us we use too much gold “when we don’t need to”.  But never once do they really qualify what that means.

Using gold has little to do with need and lots to do with want and can.

ok say this the T-34 and the scorpion G both have high pen on standard rounds so you wouldn't need to carry too much maybe like 70-30 or 80-20(standard -premium ammo) I don't see anything wrong with that  what I don't like is the over use of it like 90-10 (premium ammo-standard). why would you need so much ? I know MM is bad but come on

Why should I not use premium ammo?  My silver bank-roll keeps growing despite the cost of premium ammo and buying new armor.
 

As a qualifier, except with my KV-2, gold ammo isn't necessarily the default.  For example with the T-150, gold ammo isn't much better than standard, no need to upgrade. 

At tier X, in my IS-4, gold ammo is selected if all Tier X opponents.  With SPGs, rarely is premium used.  Only have a couple in the rack.

You keep making the accusation that your enemies have nothing but premium rounds. Can you please explain how you know the loadouts of other players? Just because you get hit with some gold rounds does not mean that that player has nothing else.

 

Frankly it doesn't matter if they do have nothing but premium rounds, I'm just pointing out that you are making an argument that you have zero evidence of... and we all know it.

Gold ammo is nothing but a legal cheat. You are paying to take away balance. Of course, the argument can be made that balance no longer exists in this game anyways with the swedish ridiculous levels of pen on silver ammo, the Japanese derps, and certain over powered premiums.

I shoot what I want, when I want, at whatever I want, and ya can't do nothing to stop me.  So should everyone else.  If the receiver doesn't like it, they shouldn't be gettin' shot at in the first place.
