What's the point of having a great heavy tank when a medium, which shouldn't be able to pen you AT ALL, starts slicing chunks of steel off your armor?

Premium rounds nearly throw all the rules out the window. 

 

The tanks I loved during the beta are PURE CRAP, yeah I said it, C R A P because someone in a lower tier can come along and kill me with P-rounds.

Why bother going through the grind to get an awesome tank when it's armor means NOTHING? Might as well stick to a tier 1. Heck, even that's a waste of time. WG made a huge mistake putting P-rounds in this game. 

We put real money and time into this game to have a great tank with a powerful gun and good armor only to be laughed in our faces for being giant suckers because someone who spent less than half the time you did just bought gold rounds and kicked your butt. 

 

Something has to be changed or people will dump this game.

Them shooting you doesn't stop your ability to kill them.

And what? Do you want our mediums and lights to be useless when faced with such a great foe? Any and everyone can buy ACPR ammo. Sure it's not cheap, but it exists. You can't do anything about people using them, nor will WG remove them.

Oh come on Max. Don't make me point out the obvious. 

Of course I can shoot back, but when half their team is shooting you with gold rounds you last less than 30 seconds. 

So, by the time I've shot at a tank 3 times and done some damage their tanks have ground me into scrap.

"What's the point of having a great heavy tank when a medium, which shouldn't be able to pen you AT ALL..."... we could reverse that and ask what is the point of having a medium when it shouldn't be able to pen a heavy at all.

Just remember what this game is really about my friend $$$$$$.

I could also point out the obvious and say that if your in the open being shot at by that many tanks at the same time, your gonna die regardless of Premium Ammo. Thats not playing very smart. A heavy tank does not make you invincible, you still need to take cover. 

 

Sounds more like you find yourself exposed a lot and paying the price for it, then trying to blame it on Premium Ammo.

you too can purchase premium rounds... and they will still bounce off a correctly angled tank... they're not the be all end all, they are however useful in a situation such as a crappy grind on a stock gun, i bet the 76 on the t29 is far less painful of a grind with a few premium rounds in stock. this problem will eventually correct itself, but there are always gonna be guys who roll around with nothing but premium ammo and gold consumables, just gonna have to deal

Premium are available to you as well. Stop crying and pen them with premium rounds. (Aka do more damage rounds)

ACPR don't necessarily do more damage than regular AP rounds. The only major difference is the penetration rate, the damage is in fact lower. Though this is dependent of your tank.

People who cry and cry about every little thing and make no real contribution are ruining this game. Wonder who that sounds like in this thread.

I should have the ability to buy reactive premium armor.
