This is the secret that none of the players who spam gold but still lose more than they win will tell you guys. They are spamming the gold, but not winning, because gold ammo is NOT the secret to super-performance.
Draschel: Well, technically, it will increase their performance. Even if you substract the discrepancy of non penetrations net total loss, say from HEAT low velocity penalties effecting accuracy, or failing easier pens against spaced armor, where AP and APCR would have easily worked..... In all honesty, if a fool and potato JUST shot HEAT, or APCR - they would penetrate more shots and do more damage, than if they just shot AP. And the extra contribution, should scientifically amount for more wins and better survival rate. The point is though, what the OP means, is it won't -verifiably- increase their win rate. If such a potato thinks as much, normally wins 49% of the time, if they exclusively took it upon themselves to just get better by firing HEAT or APCR.....they would start winning 49.5% of the time. Is that worth it? Buying that .5% WR? You all be the judge. The problems are manyfold. Firing gold rounds WILL NOT increase your aptitude in health pool management and positive trading. It WILL NOT increase your mini map awareness. It WILL NOT benefit your important flank securing instincts and map control. It WILL NOT teach you positioning and tactical insight. It WILL NOT teach you, not to sit in the corner of the map behind bushes, or urge you to get involved. It WILL NOT teach you alpha damage numbers, pen loss over distance, armor models, fire chance %, estimable view ranges, Etc. So what will gold rounds do for a potato? Well, I just said it, if you are after, technically, that .5% of a boost? Sure, use gold all you want. Just load gold. But what does it really, really, really do? Well it provides a scape goat. An explanation. Bad players need scape goats. WHY are they bad? -insert- 100 excuses.
