Seriously as an arty player, I despise getting in a game with two other arty's because a lot of times they won't mark a target and for my 44 seconds to reload on my T92 is wasted because I fire on a target that blows up just before my shell gets to it. I would prefer only one arty per team

Those can only reliably hit me if they have a clear and direct sight on me. Its almost impossible for them to shoot over cover. Arty on the other hand, can hit you reliablly while being far outside your render circle and it doesn't get punished. Sure there are 1 or 2 counter battery arty players out there but most are more worried about promoting "dynamic gameplay" by shooting lts and purples.

 

You've a survey or link to a source that shows more SPG players are worried about what you said? Or is this just a perception on your part that you use to promote your view of what you think is happening?

 

I play SPGs as my 4th most played class and I have XVM.  Could care less about the XVM color of players though when I play.  I attack those who are attacking my team and/or are in a key terrain source that allows vision control or those who like to sit still out in the open, begging to be shot, or come rushing in a straight line which makes it really easy to predict where they are going.  Purples, blues, greens, oranges, lemons, reds, grays, none of that matters to me.

I agree with the part about teammate SPGs not marking their targets for the reason you mentioned.  Marking a target is pretty easy and gives fellow SPG players a warning about not wasting a shot, as well as telling friendlies on the ground that there is incoming and proceed at their own risk.

You got anything that says arty players don't care about stats? No? You don't? Clearly you having xvm shows you look into other ppls ig stats.

You don't prove a negative. You assert something, so either you show evidence that it's so, or it's just your conjecture.

And yes, I absolutely do have XVM.   Love switching my crews between tanks with one click.  Love Aslain's modification of Gandalf's national panels.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaand?

 

Guess you don't have a link so you just believe you know what SPG players think. How's that tin foil hat working out for you?   Receive any extra radio stations with it? :teethhappy:

Anyways back to original topic, yes, I think arty needs to be limited to 1 per team if a removal of this broken class from randoms is not possible.

Every battle, without fail, my artillery is outnumbered by 12-14 tanks! It's not faiiirrrrrr! Tanks are broken and need to be removed from the game! I'm telling mommy Wargaming! It's not faiiiirrrrrrr mommmyyy!!!

 

Grow up artillery-whiners and learn to play the game, instead of trying to make the game change for everyone because you can't learn how to easily avoid artillery!

 

Stop flooding/spamming the forum with this crap!  It's against forum rules!

All I want is them to fix the mm bug where one team get an arty and the other gets none. Malinovka is an instant loss for the team without.

 

It's not a bug at all. The hated 9.18 patch that ruined artillery caused over 10,000 players to quit the North American server alone and so there are far fewer artillery players anymore, which has caused great harm to this game.  Many battles have no artillery at all and so the artillery-whiners are just whining. It gets so old!  :arta::facepalm:

1. I prefer arty removed. 

2. If not removed, 1 per match.

3. I prefer 1 arty per match because even longer queue times for arty might deter players from arty. 

4. Shot at by one arty or getting gangbanged by 3?

Already tried blitz and no arty is a main selling point. Also arty is basically limited dimensional thinking.

The part about the fluster was a chuckle over Beorn's post.  I thought it was funny.

 

Anyway, yes, SPG is limited dimensional thinking.  You don't have to think about height, length, width or time when you fire.  Well, at least not on the players who like to sit in the wide open and dare people to shoot them.   But otherwise, you do.

I actually right now find 2 to be about right.

anymore and it gets bad

less and it might as well not be there for all it seems to do.

2 to me seems to be a proper number

 

Yeah, but as soon as arty haters get 3 per side down to 2 per side, they'll say "...well, you limited it to 2 already, why not just 1...." or something like that. They already have it limited to 3 per side and a drop in alpha damage. Now they want even less arty and to remove the stun capabilities.

Give 'em an inch and they'll use it against you.

This may come as a shock to you but most people can think for themselves and thus have varying opinions. Just because someone's opinion varies from your own doesn't mean there is something wrong with that person...
