Only idiots in arty take shots or don't call them when friendlys are engaged with hostiles. Especially when at point blank range.
Arty is support, not an assult gun.
Most I do is stun a friendly, if they get over zealous and rush in. And that don't happen often.
I go find other targets.

Agree 100% since arty has bad accuracy and big splash its up to everyone else to move away from the target

 

see I disagree ....see what I think is that arty instead of shooting at a target that's engaged so closely and is may one shot from death.....should HIT ANOTHER target that would HELP the team.

Don't mark a target that's being engaged by friendly tanks.

 I mark and shoot the most important target.  v4, e3, Maus... whichever is the biggest threat or the hardest for normal tanks to destroy is my target.  If allies get in the way of my shooting them, that's on them; they were warned.

See, I don't use XVM, but when I play arty it's up to everyone else to not get caught in my splashes.  If I see someone facehugging an e3, I'll tee up the target to give them a chance to move, but after a few seconds I'm shooting regardless. 

 

No. Do not do this.

If they were there first, you can't ask them to move so you can shoot, as doing so may mean their death.

By all means T the ground letting them know you have a shot, and if they fall back great.

If they don't - better not to shoot.


 

Just like, if you (or I) T a target, and then they drive into the zone, well that's on them.

Personally, if any player, regardless of WN8, hits an ally intentionally, I simply black list them, and then report them. Players like this do not belong in a multiplayer game. You want damage? Then learn to shoot at tanks that are red. If an ally is within your aiming circle, find something else to fire at. The more team damage you do, the closer you get to a temp ban. Do this often, and that turns into a perm ban. I think WG needs to address this issue. Either disable team damage, or just start banning these players.

The funny part is that you don't always mark your targets do you?  You hit me this past weekend and didn't even once mark your target.  Of course you also took a shot at someone I was brawling which is super dumb too but whatever.  Best part is I actually killed the guy before you even hit me...... yeah you are that kind of guy..... "helping" the team........

Teamkilling a defenceless arty is the most unsportmanlike thing you can do in this game.

I kinda agree with both sides of the issue here... you just have to use some common sense and give others some room for error, be reasonable, treat others how you would want to be treated, etc...  You know, the stuff that half the population doesn't have anymore.  Common decency... which ends up benefiting everyone in the long run, so it's pretty foolish not to use it.

 

I don't play arty a whole lot, but I'll "T" the target and try to keep from hitting my team mates, while occasionally doing very minor damage especially if that particular team mate needs help with the target.  On the other hand, if a team mate just keeps rushing in, the arty player can't always be held responsible for what happens.  But no, I don't always expect my team mate to clear the area after I've marked a target - it's not always reasonable or beneficial to move away.  There are rare occasions where it is necessary, though, and you have to fire and take the chance.

Guys like this may deserve it, but most in my experience do not.

Lol what? So you press T when I am face hugging or pushing up into a safer spot to brawl, that gives you the right to shoot me in the back? 

 

1) It'll damage my tank

2) can/will kill modules

3) more than likely the stun will get me recked

 

Your train of thought is really bad my dude. You are the entitled one, focus smarter targets.

Why would I not do that?  I tee my target, so if the ally doesn't move I don't care if they get splashed.

Absolutely not.  No.  No way.  Not a chance.

 

I'm downrange of you.  I'm engaging the enemy.  Brawling him.  Back off?  Why?  So he can shoot me because I'm not longer face hugging or flanking?  Yeah, no.

 

Check your fire, better yet, don't be a walnut

You should really pay more attention to where arty is aiming.

I attack a target for a reason.  If I'm facehugging him, it is usually because it keeps him from hitting me while I can damage him.  Facehugging in a heavy is, however, a tactic that is often a one way street.  You aren't getting out of the facehug until one of you is dead.  If I try to disengage just because some yahoo in arty wants to shoot that target, I'm going to get shot (even assuming I can get out of the face hug.)  YOU were warned that I was engaged with the target before you ever teed him up!

See above post, you're part of the problem with arty if that's your piss poor approach to it

TL;DR of the thread:  some characters are absolute toolbags when playing arty.
