Recently, I just observed that for the last few days, ever since the start of the T-25 Pilot marathon, everyone and I MEAN EVERYONE seems to be carrying PURE PREMIUM AMMO LOADOUT and just firing them at me for nearly every match that I get in. Sure the missions are hard, but can players actually grow up and learn to aim at the goddamn weakspots for a change instead of loading Unicum rounds.

I know, It's hard to penetrate armored tanks sometimes, but for christ sakes, every match, there's a 100% chance that there's a gold spamming tryhard doing the goddamn missions.

 

Can't we just change the mission requirement to not count premium rounds damage to the missions?! That would be freakin' great if WG would do that, so that we won't have anymore premspamming tryhards across the whole damn server.

This topic has been done to death, premium ammo is a thing and is unlikely to go anywhere. In honor of the 200th nerf gold ammo thread, I'm going to go fire some HEAT from my M44 (need to do SPG-6 still). :arta:

Actually after the Koreans came I also started to carry gold ammo because of the obvious reason but I only use them when I cant pen with regular ammo

 

P.S I stopped doing the mission a long time ago and who cares about the mission when you have the koreans out for blood :hiding:

I acknowledge that Premium ammo is never going to be nerfed of removed. My point is that the amount of premium spamming has increased to ridiculous levels just because of the missions. I'm just proposing that the damage and exp that you get for firing premium ammo shouldn't be counted in the mission requirement to prevent gold spam.

So if I'm playing a tier 8 in a tier 10 game I should be completely irrelevant  and bounce every shot I take. Nice meme.

I think quite a few people agree that the missions are screwing up the meta. Even I am guilty of doing questionable things in order to get missions done quicker.

 

Since damage at the moment considered more important to finishing missions, I have zero qualms chai sniping to farm damage while letting my team die. Not only do you do more damage, but your team overall deals less because they are dying without your support. This guarantees your place in top whatever of the team.

You can STILL USE PREMIUM ROUNDS, the catch is that the damage and exp you gain from firing gold shells will not be counted in missions. This will discourage players from using premium rounds to quickly farm damage for missions, and instead use said shells for more responsible reasons, and not solely for spamming.

The KRs don't care if they FIRE all premium.

All that's important to them is WINNING.

So, in response I also gave what I received.

Just to be fair.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

That is the whole point of +2 -2 MM :P 

 

Its called balancing, because if you actually do damage every game, that is unfair plane.

That's great if you want to be top dmg or exp, but not so great when you have to win as well.

A great majority of those newly merged players don't care if they fire ALL premium rounds.

What do you expect it's their "mindset".

JP also run full gold

TW also run full gold

VN also run full gold

AU and NZ also run full gold

 

I think the only countries not running full gold are the SEA countries.

Besides, if that's how they want to "roll" there's little to nothing that you can do to stop them from doing so.

You want skill and profit ... while they want to "win" regardless if they ran a deficit or not, that's all that matters to them.

WINNING for them is prestige, doing damage earns standing as their culture seriously "runs" on what you've achieved e.g. "STATS/XVM".

Respect is only given to WINNERS and damage dealers hence they severely frown upon anything below "blue".

So just "deal" with it, the sooner you accept that ... the better it'll be for your sanity.

not everyone does as i don't carry a premium only loadout well unless i'm trying to get the 2nd and 3rd moe's but my standard for random battles is mainly stock ammo with afew rounds of premium ammo which rarely get used.

 

also you do know you can bounce some premium rounds??

My amx 1390 runs full apcr, food, large kits and will chew 50k credits per match.

 

Guess they have to fork out the cash to launch Sprem all over the map because I cant maintain credit balance running 1390.

 

Funny though when they spew gold, bounce and you kill them with AP.

 

I Dont like being spammed by gold but its funny doing it to others. Personally I would like to see an Sprem cap on all tanks EXCEPT my 1390; thankyou :P
