Storm has confirmed in this blog thread: http://world-of-kwg....com/123720.html (and nicely summarized here)

Here is what's confirmed coming for arty in this chronological order:
-Arty cap per battle - implemented 12/27 (RU)
-Arty nerf in stats - implemented in 8.3 patch
-Arty spread to tier 10 and re-balancing of ALL arties (which will most likely mean additional nerf to medium tier arty) - ETA Summer 2013

Happy New Year!!

Personally, I don't care about any of this. But if they touch my SU-26, there will be hell to pay  :Smile_glasses:
UPDATE: 12/18. They nerfed SU-26. THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY!!!  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:  :Smile-angry:

UPDATE
Storm confirmed the following about arty:
-Tier 10 arty will come in second half of 2013 (more or less)
-Stats show that in top battles, there is more arty than needed
-Will add limit to balancer from 2 to 5 arties per side per battle
-Will add separate waiting line for arty to get into battle
-Arty nerf will come in one of the next few patches
-In top battles there will be less arty, in mid tiers more arty

Glad I finished My M7 Priest......Guess I should go ahead and grind out that 11k to elite it now. Was thinking of selling it before eliting it.

They are nerfing stats too, I think all we needed was a cap. That's disappointing and I might want a refund of xp and creds...

The worst thing about this is that all those "We must keep on beating this dead horse!" people will now feel justified and become (even more) insufferable.

Hrm... the cap on number of how many per side was probably all they needed tbh, but having it spread to tier 10 means we'll have more variety as well.

I think its wrong in addition to cap (which I think is fair) they are going to nerf arty. The arty don't deserve to be nerfed, all it needed was a nerf...

Thank god.   Now matter how much fun driving an infernal arty death machine is for a minority of players, having arty be as gamebreaking as it is now drives players away and hurts the game overall.

Now my signature advocates my distaste towards the nerf. Uncool WG I expect a refund of my xp and creds possibly....

If only, if only.

Well, personally, I consider this good news. Outside of the Priest, I don't play arty at all.

Good on the cap ...

Absolutely wrong direction on the rest.

The whole Observation and Targeting thing needs to be revamped.
