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

 

After I think, I think all we know is it's this year.

LOL, wow sarcasm wasted on this one. None of us know if let alone when this will happen. Also when relying on WG's word just recall that the Mutant was never ever going to be sold again. 

So I wouldn't count on this happening anytime soon if at all.

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!

 

You must really suck then if you can't pen with with AP.

Why would anyone care what another player shoots... :amazed:

 

If someone wants fire premium ammo, then that's their choice... :justwait:

The only reason I would fire gold in frontlines is because i dont want to waste time bouncing off defenders or other heavily armoured tanks when i could just load a couple rounds of gold then continue carving my way through the rest of the team.

They released a road map, they have even been testing it on the test server...

So you weren't here when prem mming changes were 1st announced? Also how about the decals that were going to add a bonus that was planned? Until it's on the live servers it isn't set in stone. 

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, especially when dealing with WG.

I'm not complaining, just wondering why.

 

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

 

Some of us have 100m credits and enjoy reading salty forum posts and post-match PM's from triggered players. You can't put a price on the entertainment value I get from a guy being mad that I shot his Skorp G with APCR instead of AP.

WG have never announced a prem round nerf/rework before now, there was always talks about it, but never any official announcement until recently.

Some people do care.  ESPECIALLY the ones that start thread after thread about premium spamming.  They feel so utterly devastated about being shot with ammo that costs more, they HAVE TO post here in order to make them feel better.  I assume these whiners also don't use ANY consumables nor equipment since they too cost additional silver.

 

I just LOVE to hear during a battle, "BillyBob is SPAMMING GOLD!!".  Like wow ... do they also use a LARGE REPAIR KIT TOO?  How about an upgraded gun or turret.

But you can't argue that prem rounds don't benefit mediums the most, they have high mobility and higher DPM, then with the press of the 2 key, can challenge heavy frontal armour.

 

Maybe heavys should get a premium engine that makes them 25% faster. :trollface:

Our stats are similar and I don't fire gold. The RNG is fine, if you wan't less RNG go play CoD.

EDIT: Or Apex Legends, it's really good. Seriously, I've been playing the hell out of it.

 

Best name by the way :B

Are we really crying about premium rounds (hilarious anyone still calls them 'gold' rounds) in FL?  

 

It doesn't matter if they fire it, and it doesn't matter if you cry about it.  I'm still going to make 400k profit regardless.

This is why annoys me, with your skill you don't need to spam gold.

 

Also what is with the MT mains that always defend "prem" rounds? you are a MT with speed, mobility and DPM. You should not be able to contest HT frontal armour.

What is the point of HT armour if a MT can just press 2 and negate it? might as well play a MT.

 

MT's should not have the best of everything. If you wan't to pen a HT from the front, shoot its cupola or flank it.

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.

who says I spam "premium" rounds?  I actually don't, but I also don't cry about others who use it.  It's beyond stupid to cry about it at this point and even dumber to cry about it in FL mode where literally everyone is making 100k a game.

 

You make a lot of assumptions in your response to me.  You should watch out for that.

Rather pad the wallet playing Frontline, gold doesn't rust after all.

I shot gold when I ran out of regular ammo.  I'm sorry.
