If you think premium rounds is pay to win, you need to play some more...seriously.never used gold shells (well not never, did test some) dont use gold tanks.. DO use Prem to level. Most seem to think the shells are an advantage (I do) which makes the game Pay 2 Win.. that catchs up with everybody eventally.. WoT is going strong, but if they continue on the Pay2Win path it will be bad.. PAY should never do anyting but streamline or shorten your path to endgame.. not give you an advantage over other players.
BUT they are not charging for gold shells you dumbaZZ! they are making um credits!.. it was Pay2 Win for forever. very true.. its like the local drug dealer giving you your first hit for free.. hook ya so you have to use..
as some have stated.. we will be seeing alot of um wizzin around.. I think (opinion) its a bad move.. its just going ot move more usres to pay (good for them, and very understandble why they did it) bad for those of us who prefer the smaller bill of prem for faster credits and not advantage. We are going to be going around with alot more pen from the average player.. you know.. those that dont understand where to shoot.. but now with the extra pen will still score ..
oh well 2 accounts with end level tanks (was boring).. Im back at baby level again.. amazing how you can stat up after a few million matchs starting over 60 battles in.. average kills per match 4, wins 74% alive at end of match 72% you can go back HOME!
http://worldoftanks.eu/news/4246-road-golden-joystick/Gold rounds means you don't have to aim on most tanks. Not pay to win but it certainly makes it easier to derp. You can still kill a bad player with skill but now they have a good chance of doing damage to you.
also what's the 3x occasion? Didn't see any specials...

I have carried 4 gold rounds on my derp KV for half a year now. I use them RARELY. You need to know where you are going to hit the target so you don't get a 0% crit. So the situations that I can use them are against tier 7-8 tanks that are peek-a-booming with me. Not often.I'm going to use gold with the KV-2 running the 152mm. 206 pen will get through a lot of T8 and below tanks for 700 damage. Back to the glory days of the KV one shotting most on the field.
I think most people are overreacting in regards to premium ammo.I have carried 4 gold rounds on my derp KV for half a year now. I use them RARELY.

I agree. I've known people that only shoot gold. They still only hand a 50-52 win rate and average efficiency. They definitely aren't godlike. If anything using all gold is just going to make you broke in game instead of RL.I think most people are overreacting in regards to premium ammo.
Can't wait for 0.8.1 to go public
That simple change made a lot of tanks a LOT more bearable to grind and a lot better for low tier tanks who don't have to face tanks an order of magnitude better than them.Also now that gold rounds will be silver purchasable, I wouldn't mind MM going back to a 3 tier spread. That way people can have a good reason to carry and use the gold rounds.
It's a way for WG to make people clear out their credits...if they fall for "premium ammo is pay to win"They said it'll last until 8.2. So enjoy it while you can!
I wonder if premium round sales will affect this as well... It'll be nice to have some hard hitting rounds sitting there just in case.
