Before the update and now after the update my opponents seem to use nothing but gold rounds.  Now don't get me wrong, I use the gold when I'm facing a bigger tank with a couple of tiers on me but once in a while I would like to be hit by regular shells just for the experience of it.

it's what thieves do. those that use illegal mods. are thieves and it seems Wg is inept at stopping them:popcorn:i say this because they are stealing credits to be able to afford spamming.

Well, if you ever get me on the enemy team, I'll 'mostly' shoot normal rounds at you. 

Typically, if I'm firing Premium rounds, I either had issues penning you with normal rounds or only have those left.

However, I'm currently playing over a hotel WiFi so most of my games are with arty (only because it's less susceptible to the lag spikes I've been getting).

OH young man such a post. It is a complaint.

You also seem to have a ton of arty in your top twenty tanks. Those can be penned by a spitball. But the real interesting part is your by far your top played tank is a KV-2 which thrives off of OP shells. At least a Japanese heavy isnt in the top twenty of your tanks played or perhaps hypocrite might be tossed at you.

I have a couple questions about your statement.

#1 which illegal mod are they using?

#2 Or are you one of those purists that demand no mods at all and declare them to be illegal , even when WG states they are legal?

#3 who  and how are thieves stealing credits?

lf this were an observation, and not a complaint, you would not have ended the post with a complaint, now would you.

 

Premium rounds are in the game, and everyone has access to them. They are not exclusive to A or B or C.

 

Letting premium rounds distract and dismay the attitude in which you play, isn't a good one.

Lets explain it better, in a method to learn from.

 

So an enemy is flinging premium ammunition at you. 

- how can l better position myself, to nullify that advantage (auto bounce angles / side scraping, terrain advantages, becoming a smaller target)

- smart trading. lf he is penetrating you for 320 or 390 damage, take the hit to deal 440 or 490 in return.

- use team mates to your advantage. They can help you swarm the target, share damage, Etc.

- if you can safely do so, if your team can afford it, avoid this enemy and eliminate his surroundings

 

This game deals with playing to your advantages. You need to always assess these, and create your own.

 

One of the worst attitudes you can adhere to, is attribute gloominess and/or defeat, simply because of ammunition

UH, I play to win. I use the best I have at hand. I have a premium acct and the extra 50% pays for the better ammo. I'm a less than a mediocre player so It helps in that regard too.

The actual answer is.. it depends.

If I have a mission to exploit and need a lot of damage, I shoot only gold.    -20K silver and a mission completed is still a profit.
If I have an O-I or Maus or some other hideous armored turtle in my sights and everything is red no matter where I aim, I switch and shoot gold at (now) orange spots.
If I have to make a play and it MUST die ( typically to finish off key defenders at 200-300hp ), that gold round is as good as already fired.

Otherwise, I shoot mostly normal rounds, especially HE on softer targets.

All my rounds are the same color and shape.  What are these 'Gold' rounds you speak of?

 

I do have one round, though, that is actually oval.  Don't know how it got in the ammo rack, but damned if I know how to unstick it from that holder.  Maybe I should hit it with a blowtorch?
