So he stold 8 kills from tankers that were actually taking a chance by being within range to shoot back. He ruined 8 tankers games by interrupting the real game with arty gods eye view and low skill clickery. Were you watching TV when you clicked or eating dinner?

 

Arty is no ones friend but itself.

Came into this thread hoping to see responses like this: Was not disappointed. 

 

Nice result OP, and nice salt farm thread.

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.

Congrats, nice game OP. Quite surprised you only got level 2 and not the Master Ace.

 

I wonder how many whining and crying threads your gameplay lead to.....lol

I am going to take a guess that you literally sat in the back doing nothing while you killed people that posed absolutely no threat to you with very little health... not something to brag about really. You should thank your team mates for doing all of the heavy lifting while you just finished off people who were nearly dead from a safe distance.

 

Sounds like a support class doing their job...

A fine example of the magic of high explosive shells, used in team support, being a force multiplier.

 

Accomplished with clever use of  the 3rd dimension and the precious gift of WOT's wizardry of artillery in action, long range in-direct fire.

Spoiler

 

Even though it sounds like every other class in this game that can shoot their gun and do damage. But instead of having to actually play you sit in the back and leech damage off of people who are carrying your dead weight.

Just waiting for all the new arty whines to begin once wheeled light tanks are blasting thru and spotting and/or killing them 30secs into the game.

 

I know that's one of the first things I'll be trying with them.  :)

Wish there was a way to highlight in game when on the enemy team a specific sub set of arty players represented here on the forums to accord them special attention and turnabout the griefing gift they have been handing out.  Wheelies might be fun.

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.

 

Show us a replay where you did it, then.

Poor fella.

 

Imagine, this player wants a game where no one shoots at each other. Somehow, shooting in a shooting game, ruins a players enjoyment. Shooting while being shot at, in a computer shoot'em up game, is bad, only they should get to shoot.

 

It take it this contributor fails to realize what ridiculous statements these are. Being shot at, ruins players games.

 

It is bizarre , in this day and age, someone plays these games and does not realize one simple fact.  On-line games, like this WOT's. Random groups load up with imaginary weapons, (In this case pixelated  armoured vehicles).

 

This game 15 random players, join in a random battle, for one expressed purpose. To RUIN the game of 15 random strangers.

I am astounded when someone brings this up, even more laughable, some really believe it.

 

It baffles.

You don't seem to have a single tier 5 vehicle of any type that's managed 2000 damage in a battle...or even averages more than 600. Looks like his artillery is more valuable than anything you've got. What's your point?

Congratulations, OP! :) 
Even more by the result being on the FV3805. I consider it "anemic" (low damage arty - the same as the FV207. Those two were hard to grind because of that).

Wow. I'd hate to be on the red side in those games. The first one though was pre-nerf arty, so that doesn't one up. The second one does though. Great game. :arta:

Banned for playing one of the classes that has been in the game since the start?  No, arty whiners should be banned.  He did a great job, hope you were one of his kills.  Cry some moar.
