The M53/55, according to most people, is superior to the T92. It sees extensive usage in clan wars, is superior in pubs, due to its pseudo-turret. Meanwhile, the only thing the T92 has going for it is the big gun, and is outclassed in most regards by the CGC. I think that if the T92 was given a smaller gun or some other nerfs you could swap the two artillery. The m53 is one of the few artillery you could actually deem superior for its tier. 

Feedback? Suggestions?

The T92 could be replaced with the T93 (T92 with an 8" gun) and downtiered so the M53/55 can be moved up

Remove arty from the game.

How about that?

Unfortunately, the chances of WG removing arty from the game are extremely slim, so asking for it is not going to change much.

I know. I'm just making the point that it is funny that we are arguing about something that shouldn't even be in the game in the first place.

But arty makes the game exciting! :D 

Edit: Ps I agree with the swap, I haven't played either but I fear the t9 one more

I believe the T92 still averages better damage per battle than the 5355, which is the primary reason for it being ranked a tier above. However, because the current meta favors mobility, you certainly have a case for switching the two vehicles. I can control the outcome of tier 10 battles better with my 5355 even with lower damage; I have very little luck with the T92 since it is more RNG-dependent and team -dependent than the other arty types --- thus I haven't played my T92 in eons. The T92 is the stereotypical arty piece that lumbers in the back and relies on splash more than direct hits. With the 5355's better agility, players can get much closer to the action faster (and reap the rewards of better accuracy due to being closer to targets), can reposition more creatively, can ram kill or outmaneuver a bit more often, and can react to the changing dynamics of a battle more effectively to assist allies than the T92. Arty in CW rarely stays in one region of any map, which is why 5355 is more often brought in --- sacrificing a bit of alpha potential for faster speed and reload times. The CGC has better arc and speed than the T92 so it, too, is preferred in certain situations over the T92. Even though the CGC's range is more limited, this doesn't tend to be a relevant factor in clan wars due to the lack of sui-scouts during CW battles.

 

Choice is a great thing in this game and allows a greater variety of people to find a vehicle that suits their style and contribute to their team in meaningful ways. One of the benefits of arty --- and I know there are many detriments of arty; please don't beat the dead horse by jumping in on all of them here since they are already well-voiced --- is that arty allows us old farts with nerve damage and slower reflexes to still have a very positive effect on our allied teams when played correctly.  I'm guessing that the T92 best appeals to players with the most significant hand mobility limitations/physical disabilities and/or who also enjoy the challenge of maximized team dependence.  Knowing each vehicles strengths & weaknesses is a key to success in any vehicle type in this game, and the T92 can still be a mighty formidable opponent in the right hands.
