He doesn't enter the stage until the second act.

I never saw his name on the team list.

It's about as surreal as you would expect.

It's what I do.

I'm more comfortable shooting it,

I'm going to make credits even if I shoot prammo every shot.

I've got better things to think about.

I don't really think is a bad idea to shoot "All APCR" on the entire game. By doing that he is increasing his concentration on other things like manovering, angling, comunicating, ganking, map awarness etc etc. By shooting "at the bulk" he don't need to aim because apcr WILL penn, even thou he does less dpm and can concéntrate in doing other things. By going "click click click" changing  ammo types everytime you see a different type of tank. You are already draining your concentration on other things in that task.

 

Not bad tactic but credit drainer yes.

wha?! :amazed:    It really doesn’t take that much thought to switch ammo types during a game.  It’s fine if that’s what you want to do but it’s a horrible tactic for those that are able to effectively switch types

Object of game is to do as much damage of possible. Shooting APCR at a Dracula or other soft tank is counter to this goal.

Yea you do you and be comfortable. We all hate not penning. But when you face say, another exact same tank as the Drac, and he shoots AP at you he will out trade you, every time.  And when you face a med with higher dpm, this difference in dpm will be even greater.

But it still take some time thou. Maybe 1 second? 1/2 second?. Even if you are familiar still takes time. Just like in real time when you drive a car with manual gear and then an automatic gear.

  Better things like what? It hasn’t paid to spam prammo since they nerfed the alpha, less bang for the buck.

 

  I can pen somewhere on a heavy most of the time frontally with AP. It’s also pretty satisfying when some nub calls you a hacker for penning him when he thinks there was no way you could have. I’ve killed a borsig with 2 HE rounds more times than I can remember, I can’t do that with prammo. 

 

  Are you saying that shooting skills are not important if you spam prammo? I can’t agree with that. It doesn’t take time to switch, you just have to train yourself on when to use the correct shell for the situatuation. Most of the time, you can be switched before the shot becomes available so I don’t know why you’re thinking it isn’t worth your time. 

 

  The way I see it you’re just giving away free damage and prolonging the life of the red guys your shooting at.

For me, it depends on team set up.   If I am low tier, in a game where near everyone else is high tier,I switch to prammo there and then.    

If I'm high tier, I will leave it alone until the first ridiculous bounce, then I will switch.   I prefer the regular stuff, but since the RNG has been pre-registered on folks like you and me, I need every advantage I can get.

APCR has higher velocity.  The shells fly with less arc, and they fly faster.

When I use AP I can’t lead tanks or aim at tanks at all.

It’s a lost cause for me.

what.. I have my ammo preloaded for when I see a tank that i am going to shoot at, I have my ammo bar positioned so i can change ammo types in less than 1/4's of a second without even looking at the ammo bar
