I was very dissapointed to find that the arty that I have was not included for the 50% credit increase this past weekend. Those being the M40/43 and GwTiger.

Still I played them anyway. I think they sould have another arty event soon to make up for those of us that didn't get the 50% increase.

The poll sucks.  Where is the option for never do another arty weekend again?

They never have a special weekend for tier 7 arty, just like they don't have specials for Tier 8 and above tanks.
BTW, that is a good thing.

^This^



I wanted to tear my hair out playing this week, 90% of my games had 5 arty on each side.

*tears of joy all weekend long*

Lol this reminds me of when I saw an m41 and I think it was an SU8 at the top of the MM stack.. Everyone in the match was flipping out. It seems like the only time the game, let alone the developers throw arty a bone, people just go all "ZOMFG ARTY GET SPECIAL TREATMENT, DATS NOT RIGHT!" and never realize how rare that happens.

Every weekend special excludes many, many vehicles that you may or may not have in your garage.  There's no need to complain about your particular arty being excluded.

None of the above.  I refused to play anything higher than tier 5 the entire weekend.  Every high tier battle had 10 arty.  I do not consider that fun so they didn't have me to nuke from space with that damn God Mode.

How about remove arty and ban all who play it?

I should have listened to those who opted to not play this weekend. If they ever discount the point and clicks again I certainly wont be playing for the duration.

The special was only for Tier 6. They choose a particular tier for specials all the time; stop whining. Also, the poll does indeed suck because every answer is biased towards artillery.

I guess being permanently OP isn't enough of a bone...

I decided to grind out the last 25k I needed to elite my Jagdtiger this weekend.

The horror... the horror...

The horror was arty players announcing at the start of the game that they had just bought their tier 6 arty, that it was stock, without equipment and with a 50% crew. And then proceed to die ineffectually after 300-odd damage while the 5 enemy arty were tearing the team to shreds.

Playing arty is bad and you should feel bad.

Include options:
  • Nerf arty more, less alpha and splash, more dpm
  • Make it so that HE shells can't pen
  • 2 Arty per game per side max. 3 player platoons of arty are playing against each other (really, who wants that)
  • This poll is pointless and this thread sucks
  • Bacon (some weird people like that option)

I would tack on one more option:
  • Abduct arty players en masse, separate the virgins among them and offer them up as a sacrifice to Cthulhu and the other RNG/MM Gods for favorable treatment.  Feed the rest to the shoggoth.

Bacon as an answer just makes a poll biased, therefore not an option in this case.
