It's time for the Artillery Throwdown! This weekend, grab your favorite tier III SPG and head to the battlefield! Players will face off in an epic 1v1 clash on Mittengard for gold and glory!! Do you have what it takes to defeat your opponents?

 

 

Joining a tournament and earning a prize is easier than ever! In the Artillery Throwdown, single-player teams are split into groups, with each group having no more than 10 teams. Facing all other teams in their group, the best tier III artillery commander will earn the 1st place prize - a cool 500 gold!

Stop by, sign up and join the competition!

...each player sits at spawn waiting to load...whoever shoots first wins.  But since it is arty RNG will decide each battle.

WG.....dance......what is your definition of "epic"

 

cause when i think of epic, i think of....well stuff happening.  aka not camping,   and not a match over in 1 shot by the first person to spot the other.

 

you want epic?

then your gonna need action, excitement, suspense,     stuff HAPPENING.

 

what is the opposite of epic. aka lame

sitting there for 5-15  minutes.  waiting for one side to get bored and move up.    and then 1 shotting them the moment they get spotted

 

the only "fun" tier would be 6 cause bert the avenger ACTUALLY MOVES.

 

 

 

therefor. let me fix your post

It can be very nerve racking if the guys have real skills with actual tanks

I may have to give it a go.  Hope my SU-26 doesn't run into tier fives.

NO! It's a light tank.  The "arty" is a misnomer...

OFC someone will try to bring one we know this...

I have one of those too.  The only viable Russian arty since it has a turret and a decent arc.  

It just doesn't do enough damage per shot even with AP to be very good over all.

 

I do maybe 20-30 damage per shot IF that much vs tier II and tier III nvm it's alpha is 110 for HE in tier III 76mm gun.

If I were facing one of the tier III US, German or British arties I would be worried of low rolls and their higher damage per shot.

French has no armor and would be easier I think to pen.

Dance, the links in the portal tournaments posting for next week are all invalid.

 

I don't mind the change, tier 3 arty could be a good laugh and some folks need to have more of a sense of humour with the game.

This might have been novel with FV304s, but I don't see the point of any other tier for SPGs since everything is a one-shot and it's just a matter of who gets good RNG first.  Oh well, those that enjoy it good luck I guess.
