For all you non-discord rats out there, I just got word that WG will begin testing the balancing of premium ammo very soon.  Instead of nerfing the penetration, they are considering nerfing the alpha while lowering the credit cost.

 

So now your 100mm round of APCR will now do a fraction of the damage as the same size 100mm round of AP.  Lovely.

 

WG, no.  

:facepalm:

I doubt it.

 

I haven't heard anything on Blitznews yet. And there's no way WG would do that, lowering credit costs and incentive to use it? WG wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot like that

BAD IDEA!!!  It's bad enough that the Object 140 HEAT has super low pen, and now you give us an even lower damage value?!?!  Wargaming, NO!

 

Premium rounds are an important part of this game.  Sure, they have higher pen, but you can do basically the same with regular rounds if you know what you're doing.  Ignore the people who call you a gold n00b.

I don't think this rumor is true. Unless they want to use Blitz as the testing monkey before introducing it to PC

If you can do the same thing with regular rounds then use regular rounds. prammo is used to reduce the skill needed to pen someone. learn to live without it

F*** WG am i right?

WG better consider experienced player thoughts and ideas before doing something strange that later create bad experience to players.

That's probably the dumbest idea I've ever heard from WG, and they've pulled some really stupid **** before.

I do use regular rounds though...

 

Unless you meet me in my e5 :D

 

Also, using pramo is not a guaranteed pen, and certainly does not reduce the skill needed to pen the other tank, especially with HEAT.  Heat is notoriously unreliable, and I feel like it takes more skill to use pramo to its full potential than to fire off regular rounds.

 

I have 1k battles in FV4202, and I think that that tank is fine, even without high pen pramo rounds.  But the HESH...

Remember everyone, the best way to stop these things from happening is to prevent them from being thought of in the first place.  Help kill the idea now while it is still early.

Drive the E-100 without using any prammo, then come back and tell me how you feel.

They've been throwing stuff like this around for years now. It's all speculation. 

Unifying TRIARII factors:

1.How much money we've spent on this game (not to mention the new parking garage required for all of our M 60's)

2. The amount of alcohol consumed while playing tanks. 

3. How much fun we have with, and at the expense of, each other

It is like WG just wants the mid to long term player base to implode ... On top of everything else that has happened with recent updates, errors, a fiasco or two and that impending equipment change. 

 

Another give in to the newbie cries about the cost of Prammo (can't afford it) and how some people may fire it rather liberally?
