1) WG encouraging HE spam through current game design

2) general decline in the average quality of the player base

No idea. I usually just load 2 on non-derp tanks for killshots or urgent cap resets. If a match needed you to fire more HE than that, chances are your team just wasn't going to cut it either way.

HE has it's uses, but some just don't know how to use it. The people that use it all the time (who aren't driving a Type 5, or similar legit HE tank) really need help.

What is wrong with using HE to chip away at tanks you otherwise know you probably can't penetrate with either AP or premium rounds? HE from 90mm on up is especially worth trying when all else fails. Correct me if I'm wrong.

the only people are see use HE are:

1. decent players using it to reset cap or finish off a low health tank or fire off a round at you that they had prepped for someone else, like the glass cannon that just died. 

2. players working on missions that need crits. 

3. players that switched and forgot. usually gets corrected. or players that dont have a top gun so cant pen you anyway. 

4. bad players that dont understand how AP works so they spam HE since it always does something.

5. bot level players that use HE because its cheapest to fire so results in the most exp per battle for the least credits.

Move that number up.

lf you are trying to chip away at enemy health, in very good concealed or hulldowns, you need a very large gun. 9cm does not cut it, 75% of your shots will be zero damage crits. l have even seen lots of guns like 12.8-13cm, from lS7 or Maus, do zero damage HE hits against a lot of late tier tanks

only try this with 15cm~ gun calibers

Was tooning with a friend last weekend and all of a sudden he says "there's a Scorpion G here somewhere firing HE at me"

 

We were in tier 8 heavies at the tine

 

That's the stuff he's talking about, nothing wrong with shooting HE but there's a time and place for using iy
