Why?

 

I mean it doesn't affect stats or anything, and you deciding to fire gold in such a massive team would make little to no difference.

I thought it was hilarious the second game I played where my FCM 50t got hit with gold rounds from 4 or 5 different tanks.  Spend that money!  Spend it!

It defeats the purpose of making credits if you shoot gold, but some can't get away from it.  

 

I will say though that in my Somua, the only way for me to pen Defenders is to load gold - so the lesson there is, DON'T DRIVE DEFENDERS!

It will, once the damage nerf goes through.

So you can't go around to their side?

This is my point, if you reach general by spamming gold, you have the skill to reach general by firing standard ammo.

um what side of a even 90 or su 130 would anyone need to shoot gold at it?because according to my log out of 47 hits 43 were gold 2 he and two ap. To be fair some of thoes hits were on my KR and that was suprisingy bouncy.edit sorry did not realise you were talking about a defender.

Maybe I just don't jump to conclusions, but neither of them were complaining about prem rounds. Guess that's difficult for people to figure out.

Well ... maybe the PREMIUM ammo was NOT for you but for another tank ... and you popped up and it is stupid to not shoot you with what is in the barrel.  Not sure what you are laughing about ... you'd be penetrated ANYWAYS and so many people have SO MUCH silver that shooting premium is nothing to some people regardless.

What was so funny?  Maybe the ammo was meant for a Defender or other hard to penetrate tank and you just happened to be avail to shoot.  Silver is mostly meaningless, so not really much money to spend on premium ammo.  The only people laughing are the ones that PENETRATED you or KILLED you.

I spammed gold in my last Frontline game because I fired so much I ran out of regular ammo and didn't even notice until I was completely out of all ammo. Lesson learned, I need to load my preferred tanks with nothing but regular ammo or visit the repair locations a lot more often.

I'm not complaining, just wondering why.

 

And no, it would not just pen anyway, HEAT has a chance of bouncing light armour.

Yeah the gold spam wasn't bad this morning. But tonight it has been awful. But it is their silver, so I guess they can do what they want.

The only time I've fired gold ammo so far is when I ran out of APCR with my IS-3A. Been making a TONNE of credits.

Is that happening before or after the prem match making fix?
