I've heard from lots of other  players and fully agree myself that having 3 arty per team is far too much.  Even without arty being in platoons, they still focus on the same targets and the same area's.  That means that everyone not playing arty are spending roughly the same amount of time stunned/disabled as they are not being stunned.  Players are also losing tons of credits just by having to use their med kits over and over to remove the stuns and heal disabled crew members from the constant arty hits.  I'm not suggesting that arty get removed from the game, they have their purpose but 3 per team is way too many.  1-2 per team is more than sufficient and would let players go back to enjoying the game instead of spending half their time driving a stunned tank.

Ah, for the old days, when we would see 6....8...10....12 arty on a side.  Not often, of course, but it happened.

I too recall those days. Depending the map and what tank you had picked could be a nightmare or a dream.

I think three is a good cap. What happens when you have a campy map with a lot of td's? What will be next putting a cap on how many td's can be in a match?

3 top tier arty is no fun for the other 12 people on the team.  Just saying.

It's a strat game so adapt to the situation, improvise to make it work for your benefit. Situational awareness to whats going on around will also help. Have a great night and happy tanking!

A cap of 0 would be ideal.

Don't you mean,no fun for the 12 people on the enemy team? Unless you are taking the moral high ground and not shooting the poor stunned bastard on the other side, having 3 arty on your side can be a good thing.

Capping TDs to 3 per team was already suggested in another thread.

Capping mediums would be a good idea too.
