Had a good game yesterday continuing my FV3805 grind to get the Conqueror Gun Carriage. I was our only arty and my team had someone spotted that I could hit pretty much the entire match. The red tanks also kept making obvious moves that I could anticipate and almost none of my long shots ever drifted and hit where I planned. This match I was almost entirely looking top down as I did not have to move once I got set.

 

If you hate arty, you should learn how to use it. From Sun Tzu's Art of War: Know Your Enemy.

For those who never played arty but wonder why they always get hit, hope this replay will help you understand how arty guesses your moves and locations.

Also, if you are arty and get spotted, you need to move. You are no help to your team dead. I was busy trying to get the enemy ISU-152 when the red arty got spotted. After I was done there I went to look for the red arty which was no longer spotted and took a shot at the obvious position he might still be and there he was. Boom.

You should be perma-banned.

Outstanding job, I've done 7 many times but that 8th always eludes me.

Yeah sure, I kill 9 to 10 all the time with most of my artillery and have never lost a battle!

Hack? You mean my brain. I play vanilla, numb nuts.

Arty is NOT my friend.

 

I ground to a tier 10 arty just to learn how to defend myself from it then sold my GWE 100 the second I needed credits.

 

Arty is too much of a stretch for me even in an arcade game. To hit a moving object BEYOND VISUAL RANGE with a single shell is a bit too much to take.

 

Arty is broken and is breaking the game.

Well said DOCK. In WWll battles only massed artillery was used to attack tank concentrations. The artillery model in WOT is BS.

So you stole 8 kills from tanks who softened them up for you ... just poor players who wanted to play a tank game, not an arty game, you know, since that is what the name of the game is.

Not impressive at all.  For one it's a arty game it takes 0 skill to play arty.  2 all you did was finish off low hp target 8 kills with only 2k dmg pathetic.

Ah I need to go play some arty. This makes me all giddy.
Games are so bad anyway, don't matter as long as I can make others eat their keyboards in rage.
