Tier 8 Su-14-2 hit my Grille 15 for 1,167 in a single shot and hit an AMX 30 b for 1000 plus in the same match.

 

Tier 8 doing 1000+ damage to tier 10's.....

 

 

Please tell me more how arty has been..."nerfed".

You do realize that the grille and 30b both have next to 0 armor ?

 

A shell from an angle will literally always pen.

While what you say may have happened, video replay or it didn't happen.

 

My FV3805 hit a VK 100.01 (P) directly on its UFP for 0 damage from maybe 600 meters away recently.  That's a tier 9 SPG doing ZERO damage to a tier 8 heavy.

Tell me that it hasn't? Oh, and I don't have video evidence to support my claim either.   I didn't feel the need to come to the forums to complain about it though.

 

You've been told this several times before but I understand maybe you don't retain information very well, so let me say it again.  SPGs are part of WoT.  If this doesn't suit you, WoT Blitz has an experience that perhaps will.

The same SU-14-2 can hit a Maus for 0 damage if it hits in the wrong angle.

 

You just suffered the consequence of driving paperthin tanks.

An 8 inch shell (203mm) hitting thin armour doing only a little bit over 1,000 damage? Sounds nerfed to me.  KV-2 with the 152mm (6 inch) will do 900 damage with a pen of it's HE, and an 8 inch shell is twice as heavy and twice as powerful as a 6 inch one.

Hmm, more like perma IP ban all the babies constantly crying about the arties touching them sitting still the entire match thinking they are super snipers. Especially if the Russian arty hit you, it has horrible accuracy and takes forever to aim.

I'd be really impressed if you did that from the back of the map and though terrain and buildings

His point is that a tier 8 arty will consistently pen a grille for 1000+ 

When I was doing my arty missions I did that on a regular bases which is not the purpose of arty. For ages, we have been hearing from WG that arty is in the game to punish heavily armored players that are in strong positions (e.g. hull down). Then after the arty rework, arty's purpose became to hit large groups of tanks to prevent the enemy from winning important positions. It should not be to hit a target for over 50% of their hit points.

The T29 can shoot your KV-2 back.

Nope arty is part of the game so the special needs kids, who cannot play real tanks, have a tank class. That is the reason WG had to build 2 special mods for the poor little dears in the SPGs. I am surprised they don't just follow their reasoning to its logical conclusion and build a click mod that tells the short bus kids in their SPGS when to click.

Except that real WW2 arty would have almost no chance to actually direct hit a tank. It was an area effect weapon. In WG version Arty is a super accurate sniper with overhead satellite spotters.

 

IF WG would remove all the special arty mods it has to give the special needs kids in their SPGS, you might have a point.
