Would you be ok with only one arty per side if it  meant you got rebuffed with your damage?

I would take 1 arty per side, without any buffs tbh.  More actual tanks to shoot if I'm in the SPG.  Triple arty games suck for everyone (including the arty).  Arty would also be fine without stun.  Completely unnecessary.

 l like arty, don't play it that much. I don't actually mind it being in games and see it as an essential element of play.  Much of the anti-arty stuff is just nonsensene but i would agree that 3 per match is too much for 15v15 battle.  Two seems ok, or maybe one.  I think if you went to one some revamp of prior nerfs may be in order. 

 

Unfortunately nothing short of removal, which isn't going to happen, will satisfy the very vocal minority that want SPG's removed from a game that HAD artillery from the games inception.

As an arty player, 3 per side is way to much.  WG needs to bump to it down to 2 per side and leave it alone.  Many battles, I am by myself and this is fine also.

The question isn't "are you willing to stand alone". In fact there are 2 questions. 1- Are you willing to sit in the queue for several minutes waiting to get into a match?? And 2- Are you willing to play arty less often so you won't have to deal with question one??

2 yes. One no. I only get one shot a min. You can't help the team very much with that.

What do you mean by "rebuffed with your damage"?

They tried that, and the queue times for arty were excessive. There are simply too many people who want to play SPG's for that to work.

Often, when I am the lone arty, I see in chat-“is arty afk?”, “wth arty?”, “where is our arty?”..... Someone on one side gets support while the other side does not. I know some folks might not care, but some apparently like arty support. A lone arty cannot effectively support the whole of the team.

This. 

 

It seems many don’t even understand the system they are trying to get changed.

With the changes WG made to the stun mechanics, 3 arty are too much. I've gone away from marking my targets because, as soon as I do, another arty will fire at the same place...even if they know they can only splash them. They'll get the stun-assist, and I'll get whatever little damage I might actually inflict.

Having 2 arty per team is a bit more reasonable now. They can still cover most of the map without stepping on each others toes.

I haven't played arty in a long time, but I will say that I don't care for 3 Arties in a game, but I miss them when there are none.

Two artys and a LT or MT can support that flank that no one went to, but a single arty can only watch while that brave LT or MT is gang banged. It can be argued that the LT/MT player going to that side is asking for it, but I like supporting players who try and help the team win. Waiting 30 seconds more in queue for a game is no problem as my pizza is usually too hot to eat anyhow.

Which is why they keep getting nerfed. Their goal seems to be to get people to not want to play arty. When that happens less will care. Its a long term strategy.

It isn't a question of what we want or what you want or what anyone wants.  As an artillery player, I prefer 1 SPG per team or, at most, 2x arty per team.  But, as WarGaming has said, they "fear" that longer queue times will push players away - it is rare that a player JUST plays any one class, let alone artillery.  But, they're correct in stating that they don't want to and will not implement any sort of restriction, because they do not want to alienate any member of the player base.  Hence, why we don't have any form of skill based match maker or other types of tank type/skill type of restrictions.  As an arty player, I find it to be a cop-out that they don't think that the player base would be ok with arty in all games versus having 0-3.  But, that is just me.

2 arty per team would be perfect, especially if the gave the dmg back and took the stun. Que timer would not be that long either. One other thing if limit to 2, let them platoon together again. It's BS you can't platoon arty's anymore.
