HHHAhahah. If there would not be ftp gamers, you would be playing against a lot of bots. It will happen soon so hope you have fun.

I don't think anybody object to the use of gold ammo in general. I think that they, like I, I think it is another weapon to used situationally, the problem is people just use that as their primary ammo. They don't even try to pin with regular ammo.

Yesterday I had a OI rage at me after a Battle about me firing Prem rounds.

I had to tell him the bad news that the KV1 using the 122mm gun can't fire Prem rounds and wished him a pleasant day. :)

i still dont understand why they dont just have a limit on how much gold round you can have. 25% would be the limit or even 20% would make it so the noobs can still do more dmg, but the carriers will try to save the gold for the more intense fighting near the end.

See how important stats are to you? You go right for the stat thing. By the way....if you bothered to look at my tanks also, you would find I only drive TD's.  You don't need your special ammo against me.  ;)

The KV-1 with the 122 has a 4,800 credit HEAT round (aka Special)

They make money off of it. The matchmaker is designed to cause gold spam, the corridor maps are designed to cause gold spam, the super heavy armor meta is designed to cause it.

I remember when the gold rounds were first introduced.

 

I wish they would remove them from the game altogether. But that cat was let out of the bag along with Premium tanks with increasingly thicker armor.

 

No it's damn near impossible to balance the game properly. The whole mess of OP Premiums and Gold rounds have given us the Tier 8 match making that we see today.

its speciul ammo now guys get it right. :facepalm: The majority of people that complain about gold are bad and don't understand that they would've been penned by regular rounds too, are in super heavies (also prob playing them poorly), or complaining cause they like the ammo they complain about are special.

I personally don't like gold that much just because it makes a pubby that can't aim able to pen me.   But then again gold is kinda needed for the type 5 if you don't want to spend the time to flank and or win a entire other flank just to be able to get around it.

A lot of things in this game need a rework, gold rounds being one of them.  I've been p2w since I started playing in 2013.

 

From my 5/6 years experience people make way to much drama about any change in the game.  The only change I think that deserved some drama was the proposed change to the pref mm tanks, other than that pffft.

You can be plenty competitive without gold ammo at tier 10; I play pretty much only tier 10 and basically never shoot gold ammo at all. The few exceptions are when I am against a Maus or Type 5 AND I am in a slow tank, but the only reason I even do that is because WG literally balanced them with gold ammo in mind. I have not spent money on this game in a while, but even way back when I did and got my first tier 10 (I think I have close to 30 now), I saw the blatantly P2W mechanic of gold ammo and thought that it was stupid. It breaks game balance and gives lightly armored vehicles an advantage in situations they should be at a disadvantage in. Yes, some maps are rather poorly designed and have many corridors, but adding a broken game mechanic in to compensate for bad map design is idiotic. Also, having that mechanic in the game makes it impossible to actually rebalance those bad maps.
