Yes, I know,  old subject.  I would like to know if anyone else noticed a huge change in their SPG's over the past week?  For example yesterday I played my T92 on the map Mines.  I had 8 kills.  I play American SPG's and have ace tanker and top guns in all of them.  I have 13,900 matches in SPG's.  Today I have had 37 matches and have lost 34 of them.  I have fired 157 rounds and have only had 9 direct hits,  what the heck is going on?  Is this the way Arty is going to be from now on?  Please don't try to feed me any crap about RNG because I don't believe it would cause this.  If it is because I don't spend cash then let me know and I can find another game to play.

Go find another game to play then.

 

Direct hits are nice but not the way to min-max your SPG play, especially in a T92 with that massive splash.

The T92 has a 240mm shell  why does it only do 1/3 the damage of tanks that fire 122mm shells?  the splash does no damage any more.  also please stick to the subject.  Has anyone else notice the change?

If you don't believe that RNG isnt the cause of this, then you are just ignorant. 

Just because you are in an arty doesn't mean they are going to rig your game to make you lose or make it so you miss all of your shots. No such things exist.

well i can see by the mentality of some of the comments it is futile to try and get information from the forum.  not one response has even remotely been in regards to the original question.  seems everyone just wan'ts to try and start arguments about arty play.  thanks anyway.

JakeTheMystic,  RNG is random numbers generated,  being such you will have high numbers, low numbers and middle  you will not however get  constant low numbers all the time for 30 matches in a row and if you think that the developers of this game can not control it then you are the ignorant one.  i have data spread sheets for the past 2 years that show a direct correlation to my increased kills, damage and exchange earned after i buy  gold or premium membership.  if you think things are on the up and up  i suggest you start keeping your own data.

I find it harder to win when I play SPGs since the Stun mechanic and MM changes, not the server merge.

Before Stun Mechanic and MM changes, my average win rates by vehicle type were like:
HT - 54%

MT - 56%

LT - 53%

SPG - 51%

 

After, it feels like:

HT - 52%

MT - 58%

LT - 52%

SPG - 30-40%
 

If I want to win consistently now, I play a medium tank. But again, not because of the server merge.

stop playing cancer.  focus on not sucking in tanks that actually mean something in a match.  watch the amount of fun you have increase.

it isnt just your higher tier SPG. My GW Panther is also lacking in the damage dept. Even direct hits are only doing about 160 from a 150mm shell.

arty haters will never think arty deserves a chance in battle. arty has been continuously nerfed because of whiners. when a vehicle is supposed to do 800 avg. damage and you are lucky to get 300 games is totally effed up.want to here crying bring infantry into game and see how many people like Russian tactics fighting in cities. make game more real by allowing arty to destroy all buildings not just a few, you will no longer have anywhere to hide. and above all else WG remember arty is high angle of attack.
