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 with premium rounds, I'm just pointing out that you are making an argument that you have zero evidence of... and we all know it.

 

I ask simple at the end of the match

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. 

 

yep. and most players don't want to point that out . the t-54 gets like 100+ more pen on its premium rounds

Gold rounds (er…..extra credits per round) are available to everyone.  I don't even load regular shells in my really low tiers.  I don't care.  I make enough credits in the evenings with org battles to shoot NOTHING but premium if I wanted to.  

 

Newsflash - don't play with a clan in clan wars or some advances.  EVERY round is APCR or HEAT.  

 

I suggest changing your mantra.  Premium rounds are in the game and available to everyone. EXPECT IT. 

 

I'm spit-balling here, but it seems to me complaining about something available to everyone potentially shows a lack of cognitive reasoning which may need to be your focus rather than a video game?

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.

 

more power to you man am not stopping ya , you do you . all am saying is that premium rounds are used for more than standard ammo. am sure you know the 5% meme

So you're whining for the sake of whining?  Is it cathartic for you?  I don't follow the train of thought - at all...:unsure:

Engineering in high school?   :ohmy:  Wow.

 

My apologies Einstein, I'd stay in my 'lane', but I retired from headhunting ME/EE's about 7 years ago (Real engineers, you understand the difference, yes?). 

 

So what lane should I go to now?  Condescension or pity?

Nope, I know many small-furry-little-cat-like creatures...  they don't usually post on tank forums though. 

 

Maybe that's my disconnect?

I’m bad and can’t figure out how to be better so I put gold rounds in the first slot in all my tanks. I lol-racked a Defender right through the turret in my T30. Was gr8.

Please what? I’m taking any advantage I can get. Sure, I have to pay real money to do it long term, but that’s what keeps the servers running.

Spit my coffee.

LOL. Thanks for that. Moving to another thread. This one is done.

ok say this the T-34 and the scorpion G both have high pen on standard rounds so you won’t uldn'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 

Thanks for the reply.

 

This is very subjective.  The fact is premium rounds are better.  There are situations where they are occasionally worse but those aren’t frequent enough to matter in the long run.

 

Over use is also very subjective.  As there is no rule, or even a consensus about how much premium is too much it’s diwn to personal opinion.  Some might say a Type 4/5 shooting standsrd HE is too much.  Subjective.

 

I personally thin premium is need of serious rebalance.  Having two wildly different pens to balance armor against is bad for overall balance and gameplay.  But premium ammo isnt just about balance.

 

I don’t care much for the too much premium ammo orthodoxy.  It’s just a weird subset of complaints with little basis.  Yes premium needs balancing, but getting bent by its use as it’s currently meched is odd to me.
