Hey guys! I was just reading another thread and someone joked about having a retro weekend for arties...

 

I actually think this is brilliant! But not necessarily for arty fun. I would want it just to show everybody who keeps whining about arty and the MM how much better it is now versus how it used to be.

 

Nowadays, there are no more :

 

- 5 arties per team

- arties that can see tracers of all tanks, even unspotted ones

- arties that can one-shot tier 10 tanks

- teams where there are 8 heavies on one team and 0 in the other

- matches where your tier 4 light sees tier 8 tanks

- matches where you’re the only bottom tier tank against 14 other tanks that can be up to 4 tiers higher

 

It would really make the whiners appreciate how much fairer it is now compared to then. It’s not perfect, but much better.

Lol honestly, I wish I could, just for a weekend, go back in time and play my arty the way it used to be! It’s hard to believe we used to see all the tracers! I remember one-shotting a bunch of unspotted tds...

Ohhh the tearsssss

Lol

- arties that can see tracers of all tanks, even unspotted ones

- arties that can one-shot tier 10 tanks Still happens, albeit extremely rare (GC and T92 getting full HP kill shots on lightly armored meds and lights)

- teams where there are 8 heavies on one team and 0 in the other

- matches where your tier 4 light sees tier 8 tanks

- matches where you’re the only bottom tier tank against 14 other tanks that can be up to 4 tiers higher  you mean being in a tier 3 or 4 and seeing tier 10

^Mostly this with a few....quips.

For the one-shots it’s extremely rare and it has to be on a very lightly armored tank.

I remember one-shotting a clanmate in his T-57 Heavy... twice... in a row... lol

I would enjoy a 1-2 week run of WoT 0.6.7 on sandbox, if only to see how far the game has come over time since then.  Maybe do it when WoT has its next anniversary.

I remember 20 arty in a match.

 

I remember 18 Type 59's in a match.

 

I remember being the lone IS-3 in an all 10's match.

 

What is it you want again?

insulting folks as "whiners" as a basis of your argument in favor of arty is a sure way to persuade folks that you have a valid point.

 

as an aside, arty is not 'better now' for some classes.  arty reloads, aim times, and accuracy buffs mean, that on funnel maps (which there are more of now) that paper tanks still get absolutely trashed, and more consistently than the slot machine fashion that it used to happen.

I wouldn't mind a weekend only of 5 arties... Just once... So there's a chance to earn that 5 arty kill medal.

Because they were facing tier 5s... :)

 

Or you had matches of 14v14 Type 59s and one arty per side.

You don’t seem to get my point. My argument isn’t in favor of arty. I’m just saying that everybody who keeps complaining about the match making and arty on the forums would see just how it used to be and maybe complain a little less since arty used to be much stronger than it is now, and the matchmaker used to be alot less fair than it is now.

 

And for arty being worst now for some classes, maybe in some cases for bad arty players, they get more chances to do some damage which means sometimes some tanks get hit more often, but since a hit does like 300 instead of 700 damage, the reload would need to be teice as fast as it used to be for it to be worst now.

 

Also, for an arty player who knows what he’s doing and how to compensate terrain, etc, arty is much worst than it used to be because you can’t even come close to the amount of damage as you used to (altough it’s less frustrating now) because you’re dependant on your team doing damage when they’re stunned, which doesn’t really happen as much as it should...

“Hey guys! Arty used to be (arguably) more broken, so it’s not broken anymore!”

 

...seriously, please don’t breed. We don’t need more people like you.

And here are the whiners!! You’ll just never be happy with anything won’t you?
You complain arty shooting you when unspotted, they remove tracers.

You complain there are too many arties, they limit their number.

You complain one team has all the heavies, they change it so both teams have pretty much the same comp.

You complain arty one-shots you, they dramatically nerf their damage.

You complain there are too many tanks that are 2 tiers higher, they limit it to 3 maximum.

Seriously, just learn to appreciate the game and have fun. Yeah there are going to be tanks that are stronger than others, and you know what? That’s life. Life isn’t always a fair fight and you gotta do with what you got.

As I said earlier, the game isn’t perfect, but it’s come a long way to being much more balanced. Just quit always complaining on everything. If you don’t like playing anymore, just leave. It’s that simple.

make arty eat dip and chips (for lack of more offensive words XD) 

 

I remember arty in that time to go and do shotguning and it was annoying, but also amusing. In the new meta only m12 and m44 can do shotguning without dying. Damn even I do that and is funny, in a low tier game I was the only survivor and they were camping base so I go carefully and reached their base but no one was spotted then I see a building breaking and quickly go towards that place and I spot the surviving medium tank, I shot once and take more than half its hp but then he takes almost all my hp and before he rams me I finish loading and take it out, the same moment the last arty appears and shots without aiming, but the medium rekt protected me XD so I go forward still loading and he runs behind a building and we circle around it. But soon I say "well I'm 1 hit I won't be able to win anyways" so I taunt it by going in front of him so he can see my tracks and boom! He shots and misses!, we where less than 100m from each other! So I push forward and I stay close so he doesn't escape and while I pull back I shot 1 hitting it. Best shotgun game (I previously shotguned a light and a matilda )
