I have played for a few years. I dont use gold. refuse to use it. its basically cheating. I have a premium account though to lessen the grind and pay them at least something for the game.

 

where i am going with this is that gold ammo pushs the frustration over my limit. Angling, side scraping etc. They realise they cant pen me so they switch to gold. Whats the point in playing anything but a fast russian medium when armour doesnt count.

I've fired Gold for years now, not because I can, because I have to for some tanks.

 

I don't think the argument is the access the Gold Rounds, I think its more the design concept behind the ammo entirely.

You have the same tools provided to you in game.

Just because you do not use the said same tools, does not mean everyone else should not.

Make sure you tell the athletes in the Olympics that they're cheating for using BOTH their legs.

 

Personally, I refuse to use the second, it's giving me an unfair advantage.

I find those using their keyboard in this game to be cheating. Everyone should be playing using macros on their mouse.

Thanks mate. Thats all it is now. Dont have the skillz to beat a tank? push 2. Dont understand the idea of flanking or using cover? Just hit them head on from the front and push 2. Dont like aiming or having to learn weak spots? Push 2. 

 

The games dying because new players arent sticking around. Thats a fact. Older players are invested in the game so stick around. But when some noob just pushs 2 because he cant beat me otherwise well then theres your answer there for why the player numbers are dropping.

 

It proves my point that no one that negatively responded tried to discuss how extra skill ammo was a required part of the game that added to it in many ways. That it was an excellent feature that promoted a fun and yet balanced playstyle that is enjoyed by most.

 

weakpoints dont matter, armour doesnt matter when you can just push 2. The game is just tank shaped call of duty.

I would've used CoD as an analogy since players from better FPSs look down on that game, to the point where if someone is playing like shit, the usual insult would be "[edited] off back to CoD", but I suppose CS works too. 

 

Using noob rounds exclusively in WoT is akin to using the "noob tube" in FPSs exclusively. Sure, those weapons are part of those games respectively too, but some of us do like a bit more of a challenge.

 

The same criticism could be said of arty and Japanese heavies though.

 

In FPSs there's a time and place to use the noob tube, and WoT there's a time and place to use gold. In FPSs people who use the noob tube exclusively are considered to be beneath contempt. In WoT using gold makes you a "good player" apparently. Different standards I guess.

I was initially going to disagree with that, but WoT is an arcade shooter that lacks the mechanics of more hardcore shooters, so... yeah, it's not quite, but not far off either.

That is not why people shoot gold. You shoot gold for a variety of reasons:

  1. 25% RNG on your penetration 
  2. Tanks that have more armour effective then your standard shell would otherwise pen
  3. Increasing the chance of penning weakspots, i.e. lower plates of Obj. 260, 907, and the Defender that would otherwise be unpennable by standard rounds (think, light tanks)

Saying that people shoot gold because they don't know how to play is such a dumb argument to make. Try shooting gold yourself and see how far that gets you.

The irony is the game was growing for years with gold ammo freely available. But when wg decided to start adding lots of over armored behemoths without weakspots, as well as changing to op prems, the game went into decline. But yeah, let's blame the gold ammo... And people who use mice.

Apparently Lenovo's trackpads taste of Lemons, HP's are saucy but ASUS, don't go there.

I just checked your ingame stats of your HT tanks to see if your armor is really failing you. Here are some examples of your armor efficiency: Value '1' ratio of damage blocked to damage recieved

 

E100 - 0.8

JgPz E100 - 0.99

IS7 - 0.79

T110E5 - 0.8

T95 - 1.1

Type4 - 0.87

Tortoise - 1.12

VK100.01 - 0.95

KV4 - 1.1

KV5 1.1

Defender 0.8

 

Seems to me your armor is doing just fine, and this is taking into account that there are likely many better players out there that know how to use their armor better than you. How much more powerful do you want armor to be? How many players will hang around if all the Heavy Tanks bounce as much as the pre-nerfed 268v4?

 

Your stats prove your armor is working just fine as it is, last thing this game needs is tanks where brain dead players can just push 'w' and roll through flanks bouncing everything
