I barely ever shoot Gold , i am not a free to play player, i do have the credits. But its not fun for me , i like the challenge of knowing weakpoints and when to flank . And its frustrating for others. So i never really use any gold.
But in higher Tiers i see alot of people going full gold from the first engagement and i just dont really understand. So if you do shoot alot of gold. Why? Just to make it easier?
