I will say, and I've always said; there should be a limit on how much 'premium/gold' ammo should be allowed on a tank.  I also understand that the entire concept of 'premium/gold' ammo/consumables/equipment/tanks is for WG to make money.  Because of that WG will never limit anything that makes them real money, so I just have to deal with it.  

In all honesty I'd rather see two "World of Tanks" games; one as it is now but with a subscription fee so that WG keeps making money.  The other is without any 'premium/gold/ anything, but with no subscription fee.  I know I'd play both versions, so I doubt WG would lose much money doing it.  But at times when I just want to 'clear my head' it'd be refreshing to be able to go to the truly "FTP" server and not have to worry about premium/gold spammers.

Leaving?  NA/SA pop has been essentially static for more than 2 years.

And less of this.

 

 

And either learn to play the game or go play something else where you don't annoy 90% of the normal players.

 

 

Guess someone should have used the anonymizer feature.  :hiding:

Actually, over the last month or so  Ive seen a rise in player count so much so that I'm seeing over 20k on-line... whereas I used to see that number in the 18k so yeah, people can be leaving but more people are actually playing and I'm guessing to WG, that's a win. I'm certain someone here can get the actual server stats over the last year and that would be interesting to see what makes up these users.

first OP mistake was playing ranked...

there is absolute 0 team play, complete selfish play and 100% gold spam.

ah lets not forget the teammates that will try to use you as their shield... 

 

in all honesty there is nothing in this mode that's worth the horrible game experience...its a mode that bring the worst of the game in to a gaming mode.

  1. Field mods — they suck and WG should feel bad for doing this. But it does benefit experienced players. The ones who spend money. And WG is in business to make money. I don’t like them, but I understand why they are there. 

It benefits all players that use it. I only spend credits and XP earned from battles. They can probably make money from this, or not. No money, just time playing; you know - the "grind".

I like the opportunity to easily compare different loadouts without demounting fees every time I want to try a new piece of equipment.

How is this a bad thing?

I agree, but would add that "100% gold spam" has become the norm in pretty much ALL battles, ranked or random.  It really sucks trying to just play a fun match and seeing EVERY. SINGLE. SHOT. PEN. YOU.  If I wanted that experience I'd go play World of Warcraft...

  XVM,   if you WG did not put in the game client for all to use remove it or ban it while in game,  This gives a unfair advantage to those who have it, 

It's available to everyone.  So any advantage given to those who have it is indeed fair.

or any other shooter FPS game..

The chance to save yourself  by knowing how to use your armor effectively was one of the appeals of this game

OP, I have a serious question to ask you.

 

Why do you play this game?

Here's a perfect example of needless "gold spamming" that is ruining this game.  The T-34/100 was using the 100mm VZ.44S, which has 175mm penetration on it's standard ammunition. The KV-1s was using the 85mm S-31M, which has 150mm penetration with standard ammunition.  According to WoTInspector, my turret had 130mm effective armor at best(in one area).  The remaining turret showed less than 100mm effective armor.  But both the T-34/100 and the KV-1s were firing premium ammunition, which was completely unnecessary against a tier VI Sherman turret.

Here's the thing though that confuses me: as you yourself described, they would have pretty much penned you every shot anyway with their standard ammunition, so why does it being Gold really matter? I can understand complaints when Gold basically removes your effective armour (turning it from a sub-25% Chance to pen to a high 75%+ chance) or when it removes the need to aim for a weakspot, but if it's a situation where standard would have went through just as well then I just don't see any reason to make a fuss over it. :mellow:

Reasons I started playing LTs years ago.  Doesn't matter what they shoot at me it's all going to pen most likely, but as an added bonus I get to laugh at the people wasting credits shooting all gold at me.

Take a stand. Load your own Premium ammo and fire it right back at them. Give them a taste of their own medicine.
