Cap Gold Ammo Penetration Value

This is a fair argument, as a tier 6 against a tier 8 heavy generally has little chance to pen without gold ammo. The main problem with gold ammo, however, is at higher tiers, where there are no tanks in the game that are 2 tiers (or even 1 tier) higher. A tier 10 tanks does not need a special ammo with higher penetration to penetrate tanks of the same tier; all having such an ammo does is make armor literally impossible to balance, as it either becomes impossible to pen with normal ammo or the effectiveness of paper vs gold ammo. I propose that the gold ammo of everything below tier ten have its penetration capped at the normal ammo penetration of the tier 10 of its respective line. What this will do is generally keep everything tier 8 and down basically the same (with a few exceptions like the Obj. 416's 320 mm pen gun), while nerfing or removing the gold ammo of tier 9 and 10. Tier 8s and 9s will then be able to use gold ammo to have the same penetration values as tier 10s. This simple change would go extremely far to balance high tier gameplay, which is essentially being dumbed down by rampant gold spam.
Draschel: False. An extremely large component of the argument against gold ammunition, are tanks with total lack or minute weak spots, that in some instances are practically immune to same tier AP. Minus the RNG dice roll, assuming average is thrown at it. This is an extremely fair, legitimate argument, as tanks shouldn't be totally combat resistant to standardized averaged AP levels on a tier by tier basis. A tank needs higher penetration ammo in high tiers, because this is especially the region at which tanks without weak spots, or over-the-years up-armoring takes place. I am not against gold ammunition damage reductions, and making AP the more damaging round. But this needs to be done immediately and in conjunction with heavily armored tank armor model nerfs, and proper weak spot implementation. Not one after the other, simultaneously. I propose that if any gold ammunition changes are to occur, proper tier by tier balancing of heavily armored tanks and weak spot implementation follow suit, at the same time. These changes, to all gold shells / armor models / credible weak spots -> will go extremely far in making the game fair, rather than just hating on premium ammunition itself.
