As a returning Artillery player , from pre - nerf i'm very disheartened to see these changes. If artillery is such a big deal why not simply add a checkmark box for the population to choose if it wishes to pub with artys or not. similar to choosing if you wish to participate in grand battles, encounters or assault mode. simple fix for a simple population, let them enjoy the 15 minuite draw games of camping TDs ... who cares?


 

as it stands I would like a full refund for gold/credits/experience for each line of artillery I have T-92, Batt Chattillion 155 58  , Conqueror Gun Carriage, GW Tiger (P) and the 212A


 

The FV304 brittish arty when that line was introduced gave me great hope that wargaming was moving in the right direction with artys, forcing them to play close to the battle to hit

anything......and allowing artys to hit closer to behind buildings then once I get to tier X , I realized it was just another T92 line. Ultimately this caused me to loose interest in this game and  I had a lot of thoughts on this at the time that I didn't voice ..... adding a feature to artillery to allow them to shoot up like the FV304 at the cost of range, could be a problem solver for wargarming , making artillery less of a back camper and more of a frontliner and with this could fix HE shells so they loose pen values (and stop the TDs and heavys from abuseing HE) from far away and make the back camping no risk taking artys , hit like they currently are in this nerfed version now. so in essence it would be little risk , little reward.

 

 

 

 

 

edit: upon thinking about this , and the lack of shell types in arty I thought up the idea that arty could carry two different types of shells, that each had their own radically different arc, and this would also play into the intuition crew skill perk and make it a valid skill on Artillery

1) first shell could be the long range shell , same price, damage and arc as now

2) second shell could be the short range high arc shell, higher price more damage (premium shell maybe?)

I'd like to play without heavy tanks, can we add that as well? Might as well add one for every class and just quit the game.

I’d like to make the proposed checkbox require you have played no arty in the last 30 days in order for you to turn arty matches off. That would keep people from just switching it on and off at will, and help keep some normal tanks in the arty queues. Also, you’d need to raise the arty cap to 4 or 5 per team to keep arty queue times short, but that’s fine because people who don’t like getting blasted don’t have to be. 

 

Personally I’d wait 3 minutes for every game if it meant no SPG’s.

As for your first statement; Basically everyone would check that checkbox, leaving arty in queue for 5 minutes if not more. Since you are a dedicated arty player, I would have thought that you would at least thought that one out a bit better. 

 

Secondly, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Good luck with that.

 

The FV304 was struck with the nerf hammer multiple times, the ROF was way too damn high before. It could permanently track a heavy even with a 100% repair crew, you thought that was alright? Its a darn shame the LeFH still exists at tier 5, 150+ damage a shot with a 7.3 second (I just checked) reload time. A DPM of nearly 3400 from a tier 5 arty? Come on.

 

Sounds like you only enjoyed arty because it was OP. Now that it can be used to better benefit the team, you want a refund? 

 

Here is the door, please escort yourself out.

It's already implemented.
It's the WoT Blitz download button.

I enjoyed Arty , because when you tried and played you could make an impact on the game, now it seems , if there is a stun effect on a tank, no one hits it , even if there are 4 tanks surrounding the stunned tank.....

as per the FV304, I was reffering to the playstyle of it , not the DPM, DPM is for the developers to sort out......

Ideally, I would like total choice throughout the game. If I want to play in an all mediums or lights or whatever game, just let me pick what I want, knowing I might have a long queue time. If the match maker can't make a game, it can just send me back to the garage to pick something else. Why should it matter to them as long as we're logged on, happily playing and buying stuff ? In the end, if players had more choices for games, maps, etc., there would be more happy players and less complaints. WG would have to hire more programmers, but with more players, they might be able to afford it. And they would eventually find out what's popular and what's not popular, just by game numbers instead of opinion surveys and guys like Murazor.

Everybody just needs to shut up, grow up, and learn to deal with arty, in game. All these useless suggestions, are just that: USELESS.

I want a refund, because these nerfs are that bad. Arty was never OP, it had a place in the game, if you played out of arty cover , while lit , you got pounded , as it should be. Id rather have a long Que , than these nerfs, the wait would be worth it to play against players that were leet enough to handle and play against artys.

Another useless post by someone who thinks he knows arty but actually probably hates it but uses it for missions, not a true arty man.
