After boucing 10 shots off the front of a obj 257 with my stb-1, I will no longer have qualms about firing heat. Next match, if it didnt pen the first time, it got heat the second time. No wonder people spam it. Its great. Goes thru stuff, and I no longer care about red silver.

Yeah, I three marked the tiger one and the sherman without ever firing premium out of them. Almost have the hellcat and 131 three marked and I have yet to fire prem from them. But that is the case no longer. I will spam heat like it is going out of style. 

 

I always though premium was the easy way out. I was wrong, it is the smart way out. First shot might bounce, but if it does, the following will not.

A bit subtle that one. I was implying why wait for the second shell.

Because until recently aka last year, prem was not needed to punish the non believers. Now, I have sinned and it felt amazing. I will not repent.

One of the reasons I have as much silver as I do is my reluctance to fire premium ammo unless I feel it is absolutely necessary. Many do not feel the same way and there are times that I feel the way you do. I must say though that my Obj. 257 got the crap beat out of it last night in 2 of the matches I was in. The Reds had no problem penning my frontal armor. I am sure they were spamming as I did see a lot of white coming my way. I think that this has truly become a game of pay to win, the team that spams the most wins.

First rule in WOT......Shoot what works.   Took me a long time to give in to it.  Now, I say screw it, I am switching for the first shot and not waiting.  And I blame WG for creating the power creep that makes it a requirement.
I'm just saying.....

With out posting the player's game tag (for fear of reprisals and retaliation) I was watching a purple super-uni on You Tube, and I notice said player fired pretty much nothing but spam, some of his videos the tanks he was running didn't even have regular rounds loaded, it was all HEAT or HESH.  There is a lesson to be learned in there some where......

I used to fire AP and APCR only when needed, but after doing comps where 95% of the rounds you see are premium, I gave in to the dark side. Why bounce when you can pen?

Actually, I might load one AP round and then premium, since the first round always flies off somewhere......  :sceptic:

It's hilarious when dudes try to face hug and bully you and you shoot right through the front of their turret.  Good times
