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.

 

I wasn't necessarily saying you spam gold, I was speaking generally to people who have stats like yours who do spam gold.

My fault, I wasn't clear.

I was surprised by how much gold was being shot my way.  I wasn't even playing any tanks where I was expecting to use much armor so they were generally wasting their money.  Apparently a tiger 2 is so formidable even something with as much pen as a T34 needs to spam gold at it...

At some distances APCR would make sense to shoot just because of the shell velocity makes aiming easier, but got hit by gold at close range, and HEAT at long range(I think that was mainly one RHM though). 

I was turning a small profit most games so the ones spamming gold had to be going negative most battles.  Guess they really wanted to prestige.

I’ve had a few matches where I’ve ended up shooting a lot of gold. But that’s only after exhausting all of my normal rounds. Unfortunately, in some tanks that happens faster than others due to the fact that they have low ammo capacity and I tend to carry a higher percentage of gold ammo in them.

I've actually seen a lot more premium round usage so far compared to last year, especially against my T-54 prototype and T-44-100.

 

And, oddly enough, premium HE from artillery.

 

Sadly enough I'm getting focused on a lot by artillery (+ their pocket artillery strike and airstrike).

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.

 

Absolutely agree with you.  All of my gold rounds have been removed as the entire point is to grind up crew skills and cash.

Both arty and premium ammo are a part of the game's design and all right by me... :great:

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.

 

Last game I played in my Centurion Mk. 1 I shot an Even 90 square in the backend with an AP round and it bounced. You tell me how that happened... He was maybe 75-100 feet away, running away from me in a straight line.

Yeah, but you don't really know how the game works, do you?

I'll be honest, I always shot a pretty good amount of gold in pubs.

 

I can understand people shooting gold just because they might see it as shortening their prestige grind, since they might do more damage and rank up in each match more quickly. IMO it's misguided since big damage games tend to be from getting crossfires on groups of tanks at long range, and there is never a shortage of targets if you're playing a fast tank and relocate to weaker sectors. If there's someone in a VK and you have low pen, most of the time you can just drive away from them and kill someone else. After the first couple of games I went back and redistributed my ammo and from about a 50/40/10 mix to a 80/10/10 mix.

 

The only tank in frontlines that really warrants, and IMO deserves gold being shot at it is the Defender.

Spamming gold doesn't win games in randoms either.

However it will let you progress through the ranks a bit faster, since you're more likely to pen and do more damage. It isn't worth it, but when you can get 600k-800k credits in a game, maybe they don't care if they earn less credits..

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

 

The stats are not even close between you two.  Jedi is far superior.

  

Now it totally makes sense.

How do you get so much a game?  I don't even come close to anything like that.

You guys who ran out of ammo do realize there are resupply circles?

Personal booster+Clan booster+General rank is pretty much guaranteed 600k+ credits if you play premium tanks in close range, ie not snipe. If you have a REALLY good game it can even touch 1mil mark, but that's super rare.

Please remember that some tanks shoot APRC as a standard round. I’ve had planets of people message me about shooting all gold round when I am using a tank like this. Some of those APRC rounds hitting you are not paid for with extra credits.

Spamming gold rounds in FL is like wasting 1/2 hour of your time unless crew exp and ranking is your goal. But if a player needs to spam gold rounds, that player most likely will not advance very fast.

There are 30 tanks to shoot at.  Why load gold unless there's 30 defenders?  Just shoot something else if you don't have his side armor.
