I'm thinking about setting up arty teams for Frontline.

 

Base team would be 2 arties plus a scout or 3 arties.

 

The idea is that two or more arties working together against single targets can be more effective than freelance arties firing at multiple targets. I'm not sure if 2 + a dedicated scout would be better than 3 relying on team scouting, but I'm pretty sure that operating as a coordinated battery rather than single independent guns would be a lot more effective.

 

Anyone interested in testing the theory?

 

In any case it should prove good training for clan wars.

remember arty can only have 1 per section of the map that is why its limited to 3 per side total --- for columns A B C

One: Limit of three per team

Two: Only one arty per platoon

Three: Arty has a limited range. Would make it almost impossible for this to work.

 

So this concept is dead before it starts. Im glad for that....

True, but that doesn't prevent those three from cooperating.

You would need to click in and hope you are on the same team in the same battle, or start in normal tanks and switch when your arty dies.

Yes, that's an aspect I hadn't thought through properly, my bad.

 

However, the concept is still feasible using 3 arty/scout/med platoons of 2 or 3, and trying to coordinate entry into battle. I've used that technique often when I was in clans. We'd get six or more clan members into the same game sometimes by pressing the battle button simultaneously.

 

Still might be worth a shot.

If your group SPG's are focusing one side of the map you could get screwed over if the far side you are not covering or cant reach needs help. On the flip side if you can concentrate on a really important area at the right time you could ensure a win. Faster SPG's might negate the negatives though. Wheelie boiz might have a say about that though............
