Just driving along minding my own business...

 

Then BAM!

 

Out of nowhere a shot comes flying out of the sky at a million miles per hour. The small rock I was behind did nothing to protect me as I looked on at it desperately, as if begging it to save me. My hit-points drop faster than the DOW since Trump's election, and there is nothing I can do to save myself. A fuzzy blankness fills the bottom of my screen as I read the horrifying notification of a stun while gasping for breath. My track has broken and my crew is stunned. A few more seconds pass as I quickly use my repair kit, but the world has forsaken me as two more shots burst through the sky and crash on top of me, tracking me again and re-stunning my crew. Time seems to slow down as me and my teammates brace for more fire from the sky-blasting cannons from miles away, when suddenly, all hope is lost. Enemy tankers burst through our flank and begin to quickly murder us with their gold spamming tryhardness. I try to fight back, but I can't turn to angle my armor to bounce shells because of my track. I have trouble signaling my teammates because of my stunned radio man, but my only option is to start shooting at the enemy. I crank over my slow moving turret to face the red destructive beings that have assaulted me and my friends and prepare to blast them back to the garage, but my shot missed my enemy by like five meters. What? I never miss! Oh no, it is my gunner, he's stunned! I begin reloading, which seems to take ages because of my stunned loader. My track is finally repaired, but my stunned driver cannot drive as well. More shots from the artillery fly in as we make our final stand. I'm not even sure what killed us since there were so many enemies firing at us. We were rendered defenseless and weak from the shells from the sky, and there is nothing we could do about it.

 

The story sounds ridiculous because it is, but its tale is accurate.

Stop the madness. Balance artillery for real or completely remove it.

Tankers should not have to deal with this kind of game-breaking trauma.

I was driving out of base at top speed and BAM I'm dead. A light tank ammo racked me. Just like that a tier 9 heavy tank one shot by a tier 7 light tank.

Remove ammo from the game.

Remove light tanks from the game.

Remove ammo racks from the game.

Remove the game from the game.

But you weren't a 1 shot!

In the old meta you would have been.


 

 

You could replace Arty in your story with TD and the same results minus the stun.


 

I much prefer the new arty to the old.


 

YMMV

Ok, you got ammo racked. You were unlucky, you don't consistently get ammo racked by light tanks. Plus, Tier X light tanks were nerfed in the update, but arty really wasn't.

OP is a good example of why one should acquire a certain level of basic core competence in WOT at tiers 3-4 before attempting progression to higher tier tanks.

I think that the artillery needed in the game. It is what was before.

Thank you.  Saved me from saying it.   If the analogy is going to be used, it should be used correctly.

Do I have enough competence to know that arty is trash?

No, you have too much!  Artillery is meant to balance out guys like you!

For what it is worth arty is way more balanced than it was. What I am getting from the OP (besides sodium poisoning) is that he still has no idea how to use arty cover. That rock was too small for your tank, that sucks... don't use that one anymore. Arty shoots faster now and is more accurate buildings you were previously safe behind you may not be anymore due to accuracy and splash buffs. QQ learn to play better or move on to COD.

What was it, were you driving along or hiding behind that rock? Make up your mind.

 

I quoted only as far as I read. When I realized you didn't know what you were doing I took the rest of the post as a load of crap and whining.
