Interested to see opinions on changing arty, in the are of rather than rebalancing, seeing a more diverse set of playstyles for different lines, with different, and possibly some unique, mechanics. What made me think to make this thread, is I've been playing the French arty line, and having a blast (hah) playing aggressively, acting as a td that can shoot over objects. It's been a very effective strategy, and led to some of the most intense matches I've had in this game.

Note: This isn't an arty hate thread. We know how much you hate it and want it removed. Trust me. Just please don't start arguing here.

I don't have an issue with arty but how about making them move more often? Maybe after sitting for more than 1 minute they become visible to everyone? I'm doing this more often than before because of players doing the counter-arty thing. Having to move makes it a bit more challenging.

How about removing SPGs, give tanks with Derp guns ability to go SPG beyond standard visual range.

 

So Type 5, could fire HE shell from eye in the sky view at targets beyond 445m only.  Anything closer you'd have to switch to STD mode.

 

 

Not going to happen.

How about going and playing WoT Blitz for all the arty free games you require? 

 

I already know, this is a much too simple workaround, for the anti arty whine club to grasp... :facepalm:

Give arty a lot more health , a few old time pen rounds ,far better view range ,mobility and sights and reload I will happily fight in the front lines a lot more.  I often try it now as a fun thing to do in game but it's just impossible with all the nerfs.

I would really like to see arty with more power in the game. In stead of being made harmless.

 

 

 

 

 

On  some game missions my arty's I depend on only to win rewards etc. Can you get everyone for artys to get world of tanks to make them stay and be even more powerful?

Ta Da,

except for 3 or 4 , all artillery is " playing aggressively, acting as a td that can shoot over objects. It's been a very effective strategy,"\\

 

This is why people play arty, a long range TD that can shoot over "SOME" objects.

What kind of unique things are you thinking about?

Reading, they all seem different already.

This sounds like purely an arcade game solution.  Otherwise, what mechanic makes SPGs become visible after sitting still for a minute?  Why would it not apply to other tanks like TDs?

 

In game reality, an SPG is at least going to rotate in place so unless they are AFK or a bot, doesn't seem likely that any SPG will be sitting still for more than a minute.
