What has happened to artillery? I accept a few misses .. but at a tank I can clearly see 15 misses is a tad much

I play mostly artillery. I have aimed 50 yards from a tank and hit it. maybe the infor should contain wind direction

as that is the only explanation I can see. we are battling in a hurricane with tornadoes.

ARTY is just to easy to play.  You just sit in one spot and click.  ARTY needs a nerf to the following areas:

 

AIM TIME nerf

ACCURACY nerf

TRACK TRAVERSE nerf

VIEW RANGE nerf

CAMO nerf

ARC OF SHELL nerf

PENETRATION nerf

ALPHA nerf

If the shell ever goes outside the little green prediction circle, you are lagging. If the shell goes inside that circle, well then you are the one who pulled the trigger knowing that it might miss. Curse your luck and try again. Or just stop playing the self-propelled slot machines and get yourself a tank.

I got full-penned for 1000 hit points in my T92 (light tank) today while active scouting at 60km/hour by a GW whatever (tier 10 german arty). Da, comrade. Is balance.

Arty pays NOTHING. The ONLY reason I have one back is missions. I hate it.  Arty is a no skill vehicle. Point and click - and now with the "stun" its a bigger joke.  And lately getting one shot is becoming normal

What this guy said man.  Just get yourself a derp tank and go WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWCLICK!  and blast a tier 10 for 1400 damage without aiming at a weak spot!  Get in the groove mate, arty is broken at 3-400 per shot, get yourself a no brainer tank.  Who cares if you get killed after one or two shots?  WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWCLICK and you are golden.  It's all in the skillz.

 

Arty is broken and so are the derps.

 

OH, and keep in mind the criticism above is coming from a person with almost 500 games in the best arty in the game, so take that for what it's worth.

I've never been stunned by a type 4 heavy.

I would have no problem with arty if stun wasn't a thing.  Bring back the AP ammo, remove rng when aiming completely I don't care, but being half as effective for 10 seconds or more every 20 seconds or so makes slow tanks totally miserable.  But it doesn't just punish big fat slow stupid heavy tanks out in the open, arty can hit light tanks going 60 km/h, stun/track them and totally ruin an otherwise good play.  Arty was originally added to the game to keep players from clumping up together and steam rolling one side.  (in my opinion there's nothing wrong with these sorts of plays, I actually wish more teams would work together in such ways.  

 

But even STUN wouldn't be a problem if the maps were actually designed with arty cover in mind.  I always go where I'm supposed to (where the corridor forces me) and I always get artied.  It has nothing to do with being anti-camping.  Arty does nothing to discourage players from hugging the redline on prokorovka (a terrible map) or malinovka.  

 

Every map should have places where each tank class can excel, and only dumbies that don't know their place on the battlefield should be getting clobbered by arty.  

 

Arty should exist to stop T95s from rushing the field on malinovka.  Not dropping shells on what ever poor soul happens o be spotted at the time.  I've even been thinking they ought to just add different ammo options.  Ones that stun, and ones that do more damage, and we'll just let the arty player base decide which they find more effective.  I'd rather lose 1/3rd of my hit points and keep on trucking then to lose 1/10th of my hitpoints and be totally useless for the next 10 seconds and wind up getting killed because I'm perma tracked/ too slow to do anything.

so the big thing is stun? use the med kits, tracs? oh joy use the repair kits? that is why they reduced the time they are usable, also train your crew to full repairs and your co to mentor and you can move along like nothing happend.
