Seriously.  First match in a brand new T32, and what kills me?  An S-51 drops a direct hit right on me as I was almost totally behind a building.  Either fix it or eliminate it.  Tired of artillery being a damn sniper in this game.  We have snipers, and they're called Tank Destroyers - but then we have "shoot all the way from one corner of the map to the other" snipers, called arty.

Fix it or dispose of it.

EDIT: Here's the replay:

Tracked by a near-miss from one arty, then killed by a direct hit from another arty mere seconds later, taking the last 50% of my health.

Ever play a S51? Damn thing has a like a 2 degree traverse angle and a long aim time even for arty. Not to mention its not exactly fast nor resistant to splash. All it has is alpha and fully aim accuracy. You move, it misses every time. You camp, it kills you. Thats its job. Killing camping/slow heavies.

I was in my T110E5, in the middle of a tight cluster of buildings moving, and a S-51 dropped a shell on me for 2000 Damage right at the start of the match.....I was not a happy tanker.

Why do people cry about arty so much. If you think its OP, play it yourself and see if its OP.

arty is by no means accurate, you've obviously never played one

Replay or it never happened.

The S-51 is the most inaccurate russian arty with an approx 40sec load time . It doesn't shoot anything at the start of a match.    :facepalmic:

"As I was almost behind a building" next time make sure that you are fully BEHIND a building. You not being in cover and arty hits you because of your own fault doesn't make it unbalanced.

I can count on my fingers how many times an S51 has nailed me for 1000+ damage but I have no idea how many times I've made one miss. I assume hundreds of shots.

I think it's actually about 48 secs IIRC so it's even worse.

The only good thing about the S-51 is the damage of it's top gun, everything else is painful... I should know, I just finished grinding the damn thing. lol

By  "start" of the match, I am referring to the first minute and a half or so. And I will get you the replay as soon as I get back to my comp (on an iPad right now).
