Its weird to see how many people actually use prammo. It is fine and okay to use it, it’s just used too much.

am I the only one who used to drive a 112 with no prem rounds?

 

No salt about prammo intended. That’s what toxic pubbies do

Well, you can't really blame them. It's better to spend 4-5k credits for a round that you have a chance to penetrate rather than spending 1k credits but risking a bounce, especially when facing something like a maus or jp heavy.

 

You playing the 112 with no prem round is crazy. You got to take some of them just in case. I once saw an IS-6 on the enemy team can't do anything to the Defender on my team, of which they were both top tier in a tier 6-7-8 game. I don't think it would go well for you if you don't have some premium rounds around.


Hate the game, not the player

for the love of god put at least 5-10 rounds in the tank, thats all i still take in most tanks. Its more there just so when you get into a situation where you really need to make your shots count to win a game you can do that and have a better chance at winning. The last thing anyone wants is some guy on there team that in a 112 that has full hp in a 1v1 with a with a one hit obj 257 or e75, and you watch your team loose the game because some guy didnt have any prem ammo in there tank

Of all the tanks to use as an example of using no prem rounds, you use the 112.

 

The 112/WZ-111/IS-6 are some of the most prem reliant tanks in the game, take some.

 

I carry prem shells in every tanks I own, but try my best to only actually use them when I need to so as to not waste credits needlessly.

Okay okay, for the last few matches I have been carrying five rounds of HEAT

 

it helps a little, but due to the fact of having to reload a shell when swapping, it’s hard to switch, especially when I’ve already loaded a shell and I’m in an intense brawl.

Theres a reason lots of crazy carry game in youtube have all gold loadout. It just superior to standard round in most encounter, so you dont have to worry about switching round during brawl. Carry lots of gold if you can, no reason not to use it. Unless you are f2p and saving silver for a tonks to buy.

U can’t call me f2p after I bought a t8 Prem Tank at just 400 battles while everyone was saying no to that.

but yeah, I’m saving silver and training my 112 crew for the Chinese heavy line. Even better than the Russian line and its a damn Chinese ripoff. Wg are really weird sometimes.

I used to play with almost no premium ammo. Now with the inclusion of tanks that fire HE only I am required to carry plenty for them.

Not f2p too, but saving silver for unlocked 3 tier X, and 2 tier 9. Not a single silver can be lose in a game :D. Try spam HE in 112, maybe it can reduce some cost without losing much game. I spam HE a lot in 252, stupid, but works.

Depends on the tank. Tanks like the STRVs I carry a maximum of 5 for games where I really need to pen to win. Some tanks need gold, like the M46 Patton and some tanks like the Tiger I don't really at all.

 

The game however has turned into a time where it is now necessary for almost every tank in the game to bring in gold rounds because of WGs introduction of certain tanks into the game and maps where you can only really shoot the front of things.

I mean I generally only load da gold when someone tells me to do their mishuns and trying is hard. But other than that, I don't find the need to shoot prem ammo at anything (except when I see bias tonku or when I'm trying to annoy someone). 

My accounts: er.... half of kac?

2MoE tanks: idfk, ask the others in kac who probably have a better idea than me

Tell that to my tanks with APCR standard and HEAT sprem. :sceptic:

 

Of course, then I get games like last night where I had three bounces while shooting an enemy LFP, FROM BELOW AT A NEARLY PERPENDICULAR ANGLE, on a tanks two tiers below me... and my APCR bounced all three times. THANKS FOR THE RNG, WG!

I bounced off the dead flat side of a T-44 today. I was driving my 277 and using the AP, too... so it didn't just get absorbed by the tracks. The AP pen is also 268, it should never have bounced/got absorbed.

Yeah, I was in the little lake-bowl on Fjords, in my STB and there was a AMX 105 TD above me who'd rushed up to the rocks like a doofus. I THOUGHT I was going to get free farm damage and clearly hold the position. Instead I was the one who got farmed.

 

I did kill him, but lost so much [edited] HP, that that sealed my fate, and - later on - the game.

 

WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT, NO SIR.

I just really really hate the game rewarding players for being stupid like that, especially when I also do the right thing but get shat on anyway.

 

On the plus side I did get three kills on idiots who wanted to finish me off and who yolo'd down into the bowl into a bunch of fire from our team. But I would have rather had the HP.

It depends on the tank, but most of the time I hardly touch the stuff. Speaking of which...
