I don't think this request requires any explanation.  Just less sh*tlording, in general, is a good thing.

This would probably be a double edged sword, maybe even a third edge there somewhere.

 

Arty would probably suffer a significant queue time.

 

3 arty wouldn't be a thing anymore.

 

There'd likely be an arty in every single game as a result.

 

I could be wrong, just my gut feelin' on if arty were limited to 1 per side.

Personaly I prefer no arty. 1 per battle is acceptable to prevent the permatracking that currently occurrs when 3 decide to focus on you. But then again what would I know, I have been informed that arty improves game experience...meh!

WG already stated that's not gonna happen.  Arty players are paying customers too and WG says their queue time would be too long.

Fair is fair, they are paying too.

Twice in the last week, I have been in games with 1 arty per side where one or both of the arties were TK’d seconds into the game. In one game, the shooter claimed to have done this to have an arty free match. I think if there was only 1 arty per match, this would become more common. BTW, no one turned blue in the matches I saw.

Before the arty rebalance where they buffed arty seeing 2 to 3 arty was annoying. After the changes 2 to 3 arty can be very crippling and ruin a match. Its why you see people wanting a further MM restriction of arty.

i could be wrong but i remember before the MM cap we had more arty free games.  now we have much less arty free games, going lower will give more games with no arty in them.   to make it harder for a group of players to get into games because other players do not approve of their vehicle choices will in the long term do more damage than good.  at least thats my opinion

I remember when my pre ZooMie buff T95 could face 5 high tier Arty. It was literally awful.

Three edges on a sword?  We need to get you the Oakshott manual.

There was a time, in the yore of yesteryear, when all chat was a thing, when enemy scouts would make a pact to delete each others arty.

 

It was glorious.

I hardly see any difference other than seeing more and more games where the MM gives one team an arty and yet ignores the other team.

That seems a bit unfair to have one team with an arty and the other without.

......and I thought the OP was saying 1 arty per game had to cap (reach enemy base). I like idea of them having to move. Maybe all the other tanks take up screening positions and the whole convoy moves towards enemy cap. All it has to do is survive the trip before an arty on other team does and that team wins. Actually this is not a bad idea.

They had an event like that sometime last year. One team had to guard a special tank as it made it's way across the battlegrounds.

And, then, of course, they had the Leviathan event last Halloween.

Yeah, you're wrong. If there were more arty free games when more were allowed in a match and now there's less with fewer, why would you see more arty free games with even fewer allowed in a game? That makes no sense.

 

 If there are 20 SPG's in queue and 5 are allowed per team they could all be taken in 4 games, the fifth is likely to be free of them. If 3 are allowed then it's going to take 7 games, with one per match it will be 20 games. The more games it takes to empty the queue the more likely an earlier game will have ended putting them back into the queue.
