Like many others I'm sure, the start of the 5x weekend has given us the exp to unlock the Valour. Woop, it seems like a great tank from trying it out!

 

But maybe the most interesting thing about it is that when I went to set up the loadout that for the APCR premium shell the default currency was Silver and there is no option to change that to Gold. Could this be the way going forward? Great change if so!

How would this be the end of gold ammo? Simply making it so there isn't a gold option (there shouldn't be tbh) wouldn't change anything. It would still exist and people would still call it prem/skill ammo anyway.

Yesterday, in another related thread, I called on WG to cease charging gold for ammo. I don't think they made the change overnight but it is definitely something WG needs to do. My argument:

 

1) It is doubtful 99.999999% of the players would EVER purposefully buy ammo with gold (real money.)

 

2) pre-setting premium ammo to gold for all tech tree and premium tanks has meant that from time to time after updates premium ammo the players have set for silver purchase get switched back to gold. Nothing injures the satisfaction and enjoyment of this game like having this happen, not catching it, and feeling completely ripped off, even if only a little gold is wasted by this in game glitch. Nothing.

Yeah, the gold default gives the impression that WG hopes to get money from people through ignorance, oversight or a glitch.  It has always seemed a little sleazy to me.  They need to change the default because it’s the right thing to do.

Oh I'm sure they get a fair amount of at least first timers who have no idea about that. Its a lot like premium consumables in that respect. I'm sure both of those are rather lucrative. But I agree with you default should always be silver. Really I don't think there should be any equipment or supply that can be bought for gold

Once you find out about the ability to change currency, gold should never be needed.  However, I always check after major updates, or gaining a new tank.  To me, it is somewhat underhanded, but most of us are aware who does the programming, and that they don’t fix much.
I'm just saying.....

Yes and no.

By removing the gold cost of the Valor APCRs, the prammos in this tank simply become a more expensive option just like the big first aid, repair kit or automatic fire extinguisher. Psychologically it is no longer premium ammunition, it is only a more expensive option. If WG does an update before the end of the summer in which the gold costs of all the prammos are removed ... after Christmas no more nobody talks about the prammos.
No more crying babies.

People will be just as much upset as the gold cost stops noobs from knowimg that with premium account time and premium tanks that you can spam skill rounds, still make profit and ultimately pay to win. Gold to Silver conversion is still in the game & there are bundles.. Thats essentialy enough said towards that arguement. however I reckon you will see more premium spam and more imbalance between certain tank classes because of it. and serb will be laughing his way to the bank :)

It's still going to be called prem ammo. Or secondary ammo or skill rounds.

You haven't been able to guy gold ammo for gold on PC for nearly 3 years. 1 tank doesn't mean anything. They could just copy PC but I guess they enjoy tricking people too much.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

This cuz sometimes WG makes changes to guns or packages and it auto reverts to gold.. and if you have owned the tank a while and had already switched it to silver you may not notice for days.. "oops" says wargaming.

 just the Valour?...possible hint of future or programming mistake?

Or just a new feature you get to buy with premiums. Pay WGC to not skim your gold.


Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

Possibly not just the Valour..... unlocked the next gun package on the Tier 8 Centurion and did not have to change to Silver either.

Unlocking new packages doesn't seem to change currency type anymore. It’s stayed the same for me the last several upgrades I’ve done. 


I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!
