Finally got my IS7 and thought I would keep playing standard battles to level up the crew some and get a feel for it like my other tanks.

Found out the game is broken at Tier 10.

I did not expect to be in my IS7 and WTF pwn everyone. I just didn't expect the mass of artys at Tier 10.

Been in 33 matches and there is always min 2 arty per team, but usually 4-5.

Problem is they are almost always tier 7-8 artys.

All the games are pretty much unplayable and everyone just camps.

Looks like the problem only getting worst since so many players realized arty is the Easy God Mode in the game and switching to play them.

I have an M41, which is not even tier 7-8, and already see how easy they are and the attractiveness of them, but I like to play tanks that take skill.

All you arty supporters can come and whine about how much you miss, slow reload, ect.

Guess what? Your firing free shots with not moving most games after your in position, so noone really cares about your tears.

I already know the Devs do not listen to there player base from the Arty 6.4 6.5 and 6.6 thread.

Eventualy arty will be nerfed after Overload finish farming his Tier 8 Russian arty and gets tired of it.

Thankfully arty are not an issue in clans wars.

I hate getting killed by arties but I understand that they have a purpose in the game. They're there to mess up the day of the high tier players. No one wants to fight an IS7 in their tier 7 tiger h while they plink repeatedly and the is7 goes trololol kill you in 3 shots.

I agree I feel bad bumping into the smaller tanks I know I been there.

Poster above I am not going back to my IS4 the game should be playable on any Tier.

If you have to drop a Tier for the game to be playable, there is obviously a problem.

The is4 is being turned into a tier 10 for a reason I imagine. I'm going towards it and I have no intention of getting the is7.

IS7 is fun so far minus the arty influx.

Might as well get the IS7 because the Russ. patch is a long way off.

The reason you imagine is because they Devs want more Credit/gold sinks for the players. The IS4 should have never been under the IS7 anyways.

If the IS4 had the IS7 hp and view range I would use it over the IS7.

I have lots of high tier vehicles I'm going to be getting. Plus the is7 doesn't seem that great, so I won't buy it. Like you said "credit sink", that's how I feel about the is7, it's a 6 million credit sink I'm not interested in.

Thats only because you have the option to use the IS4 and wait for Tier 10. If you didn't what would you do? Get the IS7, or go for another Tier 10.

I don't really care about tier 10s to be honest. They mean nothing to me, and I'm not even planning to get one. If I get the t30 it will only be for the american patch.

Well I tried arty for a while (grinded out a hummel from my Panzer 3/4) and I honestly dont see the appeal. Yeah every once in a while you land an awesome hit and oneshot somebody, but the rest of the time its just an exercise in boredom while you wait for somebody to spot a target, and then frustration when you miss most of your shots and wait for ever to reload and re-aim. Basically I was bored 49% of the time, frustrated 49% of the time, and only during the last 2% was I having any fun. Gonna sell the hummel and go back to playing proper tanks, its just so much more fun.

It's because of the way they throw arty in +3 tiers up.   If they actually put arty on par, you'd find less Tier 10 games full of arty

Arty dominates this game and its most noticable at T10 where your the priority target number 1

I have 3 T10 and i rarely take them into pub battles.

The vast majority of my games in them have been in clan wars and company battles.

Ive had my IS-7 for 2 months and its hardly been played.

Currently my favourite tier is 9.

Lower priority arty target while still able to dominate.

E-50, T95 and E75 but i still have my T34 (yuk) and IS-4 as well.

Hmm, Ok I have all 4 T10 tanks.

I play about 80% of my battles in Clan Wars.  15% in Tank Company's. 5% in platoon for random battles.  With all the "sub-par" players on this server, I will never run a T10 solo in random battles.

This...but I only have one T10.

Nothing to do with arty.  Everything to do with pubs being a complete crapshoot.  Playing clanwars I've dealt with a lot of T8 arty...you learn how to play against it...or you don't benefit your clan wars team.  Its just the way it is.

When I first got my IS-7 in the closed beta I was shocked at how easily I was killed, and glad I didn't sell my IS-4. It's a great tank, but playing it in pubs is not my idea of fun. Now that I have it after release, I only play it in clan wars. My GW-E and T-54 are also reserved for clan wars right now as I have too many researched tanks and not enough credits to buy them.

In general, tier-8 arty in pub matches isn't a lot of fun either, the cost of fail is way too high.

The reason you're seeing so much arty in high-tier battles is not because people just "switched" to them (tier 8 arty is a long grind), it's because there are too few top tier players on the NA server. On the RU server, you rarely see more than 2 tier 7-8 arty (per side) in a tier 10 match.

Arty is wieghted at +2 tiers by matchmaker.  So if you roll with a Tier10, odds are good its going to toss all the T8 arty into your T10 match.  T7 arty typically get dragged in as well since they're basically T9s.

Go 'afk' for the first 45 seconds to a minute of the match to avoid the 'everyone follow the T10' lemming rush phenomenon.  Unless its an arty heavy Campinovka match. then just get your ass moving.
