This is such a pointless argument since you can be a free-to-play player and still shoot gold rounds. They are not mutually exclusive.

Riiiiiiight.   Make gold meaningless...LOL   I can pen my tier...maybe one tier higher.  After that I have to be VERY careful as to what tank I aim  at and what part of it.  Ask many of the heavys that have met me.  I WILL try to track them though...so our heavy/arty can get them.   Many times gold/special/premium rounds would have helped me tremendously but sure would have pissed off the other tanker!  Why should I be able to pen higher tier/type?

 

Don't wait for me to drive lights or mediums any time soon.  Won't touch them.  I am quite happy doing what I do now. 

 

TD's are my second most played tank type.  If you can only pen tanks your tier or "maybe one tier higher", I don't know what to tell you...    I don't usually even carry premium ammo on my TD's because they have such good pen and damage even in +2 matches.  If you don't believe me, check out the gun tiers on your tanks modules in-game.  I'll break it down for you (And keep in mind, instead of getting defensive, sometimes it pays to listen):

 

Your most played tank is the T40 American TD;  The top gun is the 76mm AT Gun M1A1.  That's a tier 6 gun (it says so right on it), even though your vehicle is a tier 4.

Your second most played tank is the German Nashorn, tier 6 TD;  The top gun is the 8,8cm Pak43 L71, which is a tier 8 gun.

I don't know how much more simple I can make it...TD's will often use a gun two tiers higher than the vehicle itself.  So if you are having a difficult time penning with standard ammo in a TD even when facing tanks two tiers higher than you, it simply comes down to aiming, and knowing weak spots. The gun itself is definitely capable.

Yeah, I said it. You want to be competitive how about you spend a little money on the game so you can afford to gold spam a little. You cheap ********!

 

 

:popcorn:

 

Actually it's folks with attitudes like yours that are worse.

 

Good Day to You, Sir.

Maybe before random battles there should be a little get to know one another session. Hi Im Joey I enjoy walks on the beach, well done burgers and my favorite TV show is Lets make a Deal. OK everyone feeling it? Good. Now lets go out and be nice, then kill everyone. But be considerate of your new friends and share.

 

wth, a well done burger is garbage.

That's why I miss allchat though, talk to the enemy team, and kill them, or taunt them, or give them misinformation about your own team, and then kill them.

i actually enjoy the occasional chats at the start of the battle, where multiple players say affirmative or negative

and when people say im stock, i type hi stock nice to meet you :) etc...

So all it boils down to is the OP would be a bad player if it wasn't for gold rounds and premium tanks...but bash against those who do not use gold rounds or have premium tanks....ok.

 

I have earned an Obj. 260 and a Chimera. Remove premium ammo and I am pretty sure I would do just fine.

I would not be opposed to a premium only server, would get rid of a bunch of this [edited].   Paying for a premium account, which is cheap as can be, does not get you better matchmaking, does not get you better pen or more bounces, just more xp and more credits.  It just helps you grind faster.  But at the same time, I have earned probably around 60k gold for FREE in various challenges and tournaments over the years and also unlocked probably 20 or so premiums at the same time.

So for the 'free to play' whiners, I really cant help you, play more, or play better on missions or tournaments, or learn to play and join a clan that gives out gold that has been earned,  or just shut the [edited]up, cause it is really annoying.

I don’t need prem ammo to play competitively. 

 

Heh trust me, you're anything but competitive.
