Word of advice for new comers to the game. Don't play at all until tracers are back into the game. Arty is such overpowered piece of bullshit without any threat of counter battery it isn't worth it.

Word of advice for newcomers (yes, it's one word, jagd) to the game, don't listen to this guy, he's raging.

Counters

1. Kill the suicide scouts
2. Stay hidden
3. Reposition, all vehicles should never stay still in the open after taking a shot.
4. If spotted, repeat 2-4.
5. Your team sucks at stopping them long enough for you to bomb them in return, game over.

A shot of vodka at 11am (I live in Alaska). This does not bode well.

Exactly, this guy is clearly a whiner.  The game is great fun.

Don't camp, move when spotted and I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for tracers to return cos last I heard... They already are back but only for spotted enemy tanks as well as friendlies and that's all that will be back.

With or without tracers, arty would still kill you.

(for any actual new comers reading this, artillery isnt really all that bad. some of us just have a harder time understanding how to avoid it)

In the past 50 or so games with my Lowe, T-43 and KV I've been hit by artillery like 3-4 times and never instantly killed. That's called "learn how to maneuver". If you see SPG right infront of you, then for the love of your tank, DON'T charge into it, use zigzag maneuvers - it will slow you down, it might make you easier target for fast-firing tanks (as you slow down while zigzagging etc.), but it PREVENTS you from getting one-shot by that SPG's cannon that is capable of killing you 3 times with that single shell.

I'm a noob, and just barely 2 days into tier 3 lights, and no problem with arty.  Have a blast playing and slowly getting better(had a bad string of luck last night, though).  I've been playing an arty (t57) to get a handle of what it can and can't do.  I find that some days your the windshield, others your the bug.
