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

 

 

Just making sure you know that you can use credits to purchase Premium (Gold) Ammo.  

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Everyone likes good penetration.

Penetration is great in fact.

I never spam gold unless if I'm using a howitzer that requires heat to do anything. If I'm plotting a regular tank, I only soot gold when I need.

definitely a good point...

 

Also, you should create a Warhaming id and get a real name. People, including myself, judge you severely based on that name. I think they give you gold too!

I'm working to improve my winrate. Currently: 45% 46% 47% 48%  49% 50% 51%ish >>> 30 days is 60% ... Currently working to become a unicum, and all tips are appreciated!

For the people that voted, how did you figure out the percentages that you you use premium ammunition? This poll is massively flawed.

If you can’t pen, use gold. I’m posting a Shell Mechanics video around 9 PM ET so click the link in my signature. It will go over your question.

Educated guess. I put myself in position to succeed, but sometimes just can’t pen.

Also note: If you're in an SU-100Y, you should spam gold at stuff, as it has higher alpha and lower pen than regular AP.  Treat the standard AP like APCR/HEAT, and the gold rounds like normal AP.

It’s illogical to look down upon players using prammo, after the prammo nerf. Because whether to use prammo at given moment has become a skill-based decision. Blindly spamming prammo can actually cost you your WR and other stats.

I have used it in the situations that I must. I would rather have the extra damage, if the standard ammo will pen. I didn’t have any in my load outs until I figured out that you can buy with credits...

Prammo has two main uses. To be certain of a kill shot when your HE is too weak. And to force a heavily armored target to react. Nobody in their right mind is just going to sit there and take it just because you are doing less damage than an standard round might.

 

Unless my main ammo is a joke and/or my prammo is dirt cheap I never carry more than 10 rounds of gold. So my Valentine II might have 20+ APCR.


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

​Uhhh, well for my less than 10% it is because I literally shoot 1 shot of APCR every 4-5 games or so. The only time I spam it is in low pen DPM tanks like the BP. I didn't even use that much prammo on the Comet so i'd say i'm decently reserved on using gold. 

F*** WG am i right?

if u aim well Premium Ammo is rarely needed, plus the dmg nerf when using premium ammo is another turnoff.  i rarely switch to premium ammo and i play mostly tier 10.

You know, thats just it. Still don't get why you get the stupid spamming HE comments during battles...there are times you need it depending on the tier and/or tank.

Also.....just remember OP....APCR is standard for some tanks....luv when I get the "gold spammer" when I'm driving my IS2SH.        HEAT cost money though and no need for that when driving that thing.
