I love arty. I began this game and barely played anything but HT and MT. I decided one day to learn to play arty and LT. I fell in love and put my all-female crew in my m53/55 and was having a blast. So much fun. Then came the neutering. Arty, despite its big guns, doesn't do much damage anymore. I'd like to suggest, however unpopular arty is, to return arty to its previous power, but limit how many are in a match to 1.

 

Such is my suggestion. Thank you.

I agree that arty is long overdue for a buff. Its time WG stop catering to crybabies and give arty its rightful place in the sun once again

With one per match you'll be sitting in the queue for minutes every time you play. And anything less than 3 per match pretty much guarantees that there will never be an arty free match again...

Hey OP you realize that if they do this then you're going to be waiting a long, long time in the queue to get a battle, right?  And that you're going to time out a lot in the queue and have to re-queue again.

playing in my O-Ho yesterday on one of those maps where the only cover is hills I took 7 arty hits in 3 minutes killing me. I had a super heavy spall liner and was still taking 500 damage a hit. For those of you going to tell me to get arty safe... As I said earlier, only cover was hills and I couldn't pull back till I became unspotted because if I didn't keep up the pressure then the other team would have pushed forward and overwhelmed me. The problem with arty is they can ruin a player's game without any risk to themselves

When your troll is obvious, you're trying too hard. Go back to your fair play thread where you seemed to have found some people willing to play along.

I don't think you need to limit arty to one per battle. All WG needs to do is reduce the stun radius, time and splash damage and the class would be tolerable enough that most players wouldn't notice it.

Not my fault if you lack the skill to evade arty. 

 

Get good and stop whining.

See you're trying too hard again.  I think you exhausted yourself in the other thread. Try taking a nap.

Learn to evade arty instead of whining about it.

Nuclear rounds for arty NOW!

 

Seriously, 3 SPGs that concentrate their firepower are way OP.  I think stun needs a nerf bat, top tier SPGs stun Maus for 15s despite landing shell at the edge of it's radius (I have spall liner installed).

Yes I agree you should go first.

 

At least we concur on that.

Probably a random suggestion that popped into my head, I see a lot of people saying 'evade' arty, and sorry for my noob like skills which help with my opinions, but what about a notification when arty is aiming at you? maybe 1 or 2 seconds after they start aiming at you? that way there can be more leeway with how the nerf / buff arty in the game, would there still be such a big argument about arty safe then? if you had fair warning before getting smacked in your engine deck for 500  HP and 3 modules?

Not trying to take any sides here but it popped into my head while I was reading these, as then, would become a question of why didn't you move?
 

Anywho, that's a random suggestion, lemme know how stupid it is.

After a long period of not playing Arty...i've gone back and re-discovered just how much i liked it!!   Despite the haters, it DOES take skill, of a different sort.  It DOES earn credits.  

 

I do sometimes think 3 might be too much but...oh well, sucks to be them i guess.

Now this is a typical comment above.  Here's a guy, playing what amounts to a super-heavy..with a gun that can vaporize lower tiers (thank you 3/5/7) and pretty much ruin everyone else's day.  He loads up spall liner...he knows he needs to be play arty safe but....OMG!  He's driving a frickin' building around the field that moves like a sloth, turns like a battleship.  BTW, weren't Japanese super-heavies only conceived as mobile naval guns for defense of a land invasion of the Home Islands?   Ah, but i digress!  SO...gigantic slow moving tank...really a serious threat to the artillery players side and moving in...and is arty NOT supposed to "take 'em out"?  Do we actually need XVM to figure this out?  I don't think so.  If i'm playing arty against that..if he's in my range and view of fire..i'm gonna hammer that O-Ho into dust and i think my team kind of expects me to...then move on to the next imminent threat.  I RARELY see  anyone playing on a team with effective artillery complain about that kind of help winning...but i guess you can't fix stupid can you?

 

Besides...what other tank can you play with one hand...AND eat nachos with the other?  C'mon....does life get any better than that?
