If you're going to nerf arty, put it in the damn notes. stop tweaking the RNG for arty. you're breaking it more and more every patch. Fix it properly, or revert it to pre-8.6. stop messing with an artificial skill adjuster.

Arty is pretty gross. The RNG is too high but so is the alpha of arty. I guarantee if RNG was tweaked any higher it would cause whiplash in arty players, with how violently their luck swings.

 

Games in my M53/55 are good or bad depending on how often RNG decides that I really wanted my shell to hit the outside edge of the aiming circle, rather than the tank in the middle that has been stationary for ten seconds and lit. It's like gambling but you feel a little sick inside afterwards, like you've given up precious childhood memories to some dark power.

 

But, personal missions must be done. I always finish a session with arty by playing a game in the T28. Penance!

Arty players will get no sympathy from most players here.  We could care less if you get nerfed into oblivion.  I mean when any player can just camp at the back and use his allies for meat shields/spotter etc and fire at enemy tanks with no chance or repercussions, that to me is a coward's tank to play.

And as soon as WG eliminates Arty requirements for personal missions most of us will stop playing it.

I do not dislike you forum-wise at all, but you really really have the nuts to use the term "coward" in reference to a pixel game on the internet? :trollface:    lawl!

We still don't know what will happen Nerf or just some casual changes :sceptic:.

 

I want nerf to alpha and more involving gameplay or better no Personal Missions that make people play Arty.

When i get to know more about the changes ill sell all artys,Sold most.

 

But changes are all guesses

What do you think Tank Destroyers do? Sit beyond spotting range, inside draw range, and pummel you 800+ per shot. "Oh but TankSchu, at least they can be shot back at!"  Not if you don't see them. Any good TD will not get spotted, or will shift if they do get spotted.

Yay! You had a single good battle and posted the screenshot to prove arty's overpowered all the time. Grats, but any reasonable person would know one battle doesn't make for proper analysis... oh nm, forgot the community I was talking to. sample sizes greater than one is too much work.

That is the problem entirely of itself. Getting close. If I could get close, it wouldn't be as much of a problem. But when 60-70% of my shots hit the edge of my reticle for no reason, that's silly. In fact, today I had a battle where I shot at a tank (reticle closed, click fire) and it went long. I gauged the flight time perfectly, shot at the right moment.... and missed. The very next shot I changed nothing, and it went short. The next shot after that, I splashed for a kill shot of 200. Shot after that?  you guessed it, missed for no reason. I'm not doing anything wrong, but the game just tells me today I will hit not much of anything. And that there is the reason arty is broke. Not that it's a newb class, or a coward class, or a god mode class. But that it has no consistency in how it's played. Every day you have to adjust to the RNG and even that's not enough.

 

 

So if WG wants to keep playing with artillery's RNG and tweaking it to appease the idiots who drive in predictable paths, or hide in predictable locations, the least they can do is mention it in the patch notes.
