So I've been wondering for quite a while how many people regularly use Gold/APCR shells. How about a poll.

It's a tool in your toolbox.  It would be silly not to use it.

It's better to get some damage than a bounce. Simple as that. Yes, it drains credits, but every little bit of damage is a piece of the victory puzzle. I use it for guaranteed kills as well, as I need to take out reds ASAP. 

 

I would advise using gold ammo on the fronts of the following tanks (but not limited to):

DW 2, Matilda, PZ B2, AMX 40 (Duck), Valentine [ii]

KV-1, T1 Heavy, 

KV1S, T-150, ARL 44, Kuro Mori Mine

IS, IS-2 (especially when facehugging), Tiger P, 

IS-3, IS-5, IS-6

IS-8, VK 45.02 B, E 75, Kpfpz 70, M103

IS-7, Maus, [jg pz] E 100 (upper plate only), IS-4, T110 [e3] [e4] [e5]

 

Also, use APCR on the sides of IS tanks in almost all circumstances. They troll you beyond belief.

However, DO NOT USE HEAT on the sides of IS tanks. They have spaced armor, which makes the shell explode before it can penetrate the armor (basically, ok?). Also, do not use heat when shooting people's tracks, or shooting through things in general. AP and APCR can go through anything though.

Can't Pen?  ​Insert Pramo

 

I use it all of the time... I play well enough to afford it.

 

It's not an excuse for poor positioning and it's not to be used when you can easily pen with amo that's going to do higher damage.  (...and by "easily" I don't mean shooting the back of an Sp I C... weakspots can count as easy pens too.)

I play for free so I use it very sparingly, typically when down tier.  Also, keep in mind that gold rounds typically do less damage than ap rounds as well as being more expensive.  But sometimes you just gotta have it....

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

I use it sometimes. The JT 88 has very good penetration so it can pen the majority of tanks without a problem. 

As Luc said, its better to deal some damage instead of bouncing a shot, so when the enemy has low HP I will fire APCR to guarantee the kill.

 

Idk why some people cry so much about being penned with premium shells, if its in the game its meant to be used...

Not only that, but they can't possibly know how much prammo a person is actually firing. I pen tanks all the time with AP, just by aiming for weak spots.

Hmmmmmm....

That's not true either.

The day will come when a person is up against a tank they can't pen, even from the sides with standard AP ammo. The Duck has low pen and is frequently reliant on premium ammo. Especially since it doesn't have the speed to flank an opponent.

Please don't tell other players not to use it...when needed...I want players that understand this game...and what tools they need to use in different situations...that contributes to team wins...you do you boo...but I guess you're the exception...

Your poll is somewhat limited...you need to have a APCR spot for...

 

(I only use apcr for situational circumstances)... Most of the voting would probably go there...

This pretty much sums it up. It's completely situational and depends on my gun and my target. I don't spam prammo playing something like an ARL 44 (212 standard pen at tier 6!!), but at tier 10, and specific situations like the SU-100Y, I fire it very often.

Maybe it's because I'm a guy but who does not like good GOOD penetration?

I took a very quick look at your stats because I wanted to know if your a top player or just talking trash. Well you should change your ammo load out if you ever dream of making it to %50.

I suggest you rethink the use of a great tool...apcr pens the best of all the shells available in this game...if your bouncing apcr... you're not using it right..if it's OP armored tank you still have to shoot the weakest spots...but AP would bounce on those same spots...not APCR...get it??? ...Good...
