Stupid observation, but why bother making videos about how to use your armour

When the pay to win types just use gold ammo, so your armour is worthless anyway. 

 

Makes me laugh when they spam gold on my tanks with no armour. But when you play heavies, you try to bring some skill to the game, which becomes pointless when people spam gold. 

 

So my point is simple - how about you stop the videos wargaming. Just tell everyone to fire gold and be done with it. Who needs skill.

So that you can effectively fight against once-in-a-blue-moon players who still insist on AP.

Indeed, the option is there.. i certainly do not use gold for prem ammo.. i use credits.. do i use gold ammo all the time.. hell no.. just when necessary.

I need skill....but I also need tactics.

 

Skill applied with poor timing doesn't turn matches. Apply skill at the RIGHT time however, and you can decide a battle.

 

I watched Valheru's stream last night and his tactic was simple "Watch the RU streams, carrying is easy. Just farm the pushes......."

 

My winrate has been sinking all month, but today I won 8 from 8. Good advice!

When your team pushes or the other one? I suspect it's the latter. Many a good game has been won off of a solid counterattack.

Just took an educated guess where the enemy would be and went to shake hands with them.

 

Played fcm 50t and cromwell, both tanks are good for spotting, so my "guess" was answered in 2 minutes or less XD.

 

50t i played aggro but cromwell i used to passive scout then counter

Angling armour still works against gold. If you get penned with gold you'll probably get penned with standard rounds most of the time. Only exception is the E100.

E100 sure suffer alot when facing gold rounds. But on good day, when rngesus bless your turret face with Rngarmor, you get some real shit you cant believe.

 

 

Wont happen again, its impossible for this to repeat.

Because efficient armour usage still helps even in scenarios where people are liberally using premium ammo. In fact there are times when normal AP is a better chance to pen. Normalisation is a thing.

Because premium ammo is situational better than standard. You don't sling HEAT in spaced armor for example

Why just last night I was lucky enough to flank an IS7 in my Type 5 and shoot him up the arse for 1.9k damage as the game opener. Liberal  And then finished the game with a 1.4k slap into a grille to end up on 6.7k. And the armour is pretty snazzy as well, bounced 5.5k.

It had been a while since i had taken the old girl out for a run. Might have to be a little more often :rolleyes:
