Ban gold from FL. Then people will realize the real problems are MOBA maps that don't allow for flanking and +/-2 MM that creates massive pen and armor disparities.

how does the FL map not allow for flanking? unless you are rolling slower than 30kph you can flank so many different ways

Read more carefully; that's exactly what I said. People flank in FL and they aren't loading gold because they want credits. Then they'll go back to standard mode and realize they're back to playing OP tanks, camping lanes, and spamming gold.

People want to maximize their efforts and minimize time for leveling up.  One way to do that is use the gold round game mechanic.  It makes perfect sense, what one person thinks is "needed" has little to nothing to do with what another person needs.  Gold round orthodoxy is silly.

1 minute left and I am 20% away from General and all I have to shoot at is Defenders and and Objects or TS-5's?  Yeah, I am going to load a little gold to get to General.  Also, if I am defending early in my t-44-100 and 2 Defenders are on cap?  Yeah, I am going to load some gold.   Generally speaking though, no gold.

I use nothing but premium rounds in FL.  If you go back to the recharge point, especially when a sector falls, it will reload all of your premium ammo for free. $0.

It's part of why gold spam is so common.

This is basically how I do it as well.

I'm still not seeing premium ammo spam that's remotely comparable to random battles.  But, then again, I rarely play heavies in FL, so maybe that's it.

I've seen only a few use SPremo rounds in FL. Just laughed. Obviously their choice, but It's a gigantic map, if you can't find a flank to shoot at...welll. Just LoL.

So i realized today that people are addicted to premium rounds "gold rounds" because the one place you will rarely need to use them is in front line and i still using them like their lives depended on them.

so here is my theory,

people have seen that they dont have to put as much effort into aim to find weak spots and can pull off more snap shots with prem rounds so they got themselves addicted to the "power" of the premium rounds. even though they dont make any credits unless they do crazy amount of damage because i seen plenty of premium tanks spamming it lol. 

so to break an addiction the player has to replace it with something "better" which is why i now under stand WGs view to buffing standard rounds.

so what are your thoughts on the mater?

 

In my experience in frontline so far this year, gold/premium/special rounds were used much much less than in pub battles compared to pub battles.  Maybe 1 out of every 20 shots that hit me was a premium round.  The few times I used them were when I was in a light tank and I didn't have enough penetration to pen a heavy tank with regular ammo or I ran out of regular ammo and wasn't near a repair/resupply point.

 

Unless you only played the TS-5, Defender, 252U, and VK 100.01P in frontlines, I really doubt you saw much gold round spam.

You get charged once for your original load out and replenishment after battle as normal. So, for example using a T44 with 64 shell capacity at 2800 per Sprem.  Your 65th shell would be replaced at no charge while in the game firing away. So, 64x2800 = 179,200 you would have to fire out first to get your 65th shell for free. This is the way I read the FL guidelines.

Gold rounds in frontline?

For those that did not make 18.5 million credits this go round to basically pay for my 2 black market purchases of the M41-90 & Caernarvon AX

But hey ... to each their own:P

Yes, I do use them occasionally in FL, not for any reason than to stop the enemy when I need to be sure of damage, or at least, more sure than normal. And since I run mainly mediums, i.e. the Lorraine, T54 Proto and T44 to name a few, there are times when I am against some tanks that are hard to pen normally, so I may switch to Gold rounds, then, once that is done, if I remember, switch back. Although for the Lorraine, don't even have any gold rounds on board since its an autoloader, I want a full magazine loaded each time I drain one, and if I have a mix of ammo, it will only load what is left in storage for that particular ammo. So I just fill all slots with regular rounds. Finished the week leveling out to 7 and made an easy 20 mil for the week, bank account is at a luxurious 90 mil, so won't have to worry about scrapping for silver anytime soon.....

direct quote from FL regulations and guidelines and make it clear its different from tank repair which you only pay for up to 100% repair:

The total cost of replenished shells will be charged.

There really aren't any stupor HTs in FL mode (which is kinda what the topic is about here).  There you can actually flank and shoot them in the side...

players that use all prem rounds in front line mode are those players that just suck and have no skill. when its all the same tier tanks. players just like to waste credits. and play like trash .
