Simple post, stop having 3 artillery in a battle. One is bad enough. Three is rediculous.

How about we stop the crying about arty instead?

No.  The game exists beyond you.  Many, many other people play it, and many of those people DO play a class that has been in the game since the beginning.  Arty, while it has a few excellent units [as do all tank types], does not substantially alter win rates in and of itself, so it is balanced.

 

So, no to removal.

 

Three?  The only way to get battles WITHOUT arty is to have a high-enough limit that the queue can actually empty of arty from time to time.  A limit lower than three would almost eliminate games with just one or even zero arty.  I actually like the variety.

 

Look at your behaviour in the game.  Why does having 3 arty bug you so much, and what can you do, or how can you adjust your attitude, to enjoy the game more?

 

Arty is part of the environment of the game, part of the challenge.  Address the challenge.

Do you mind 3x artillery when it is on Himmelsdorf, Paris, etc.?  Seems to me that you want the game to be played, how you like it, as opposed to what is good for the overall community.  While I appreciate your artillery scorn, you are a very small number, in the grand scheme of things.  Though, I do believe that something needs to be done, in some fashion, to make the game better for artillery players and for those that don't enjoy artillery heavy games.  There IS a balance that is possible.  The only question is whether WG has the stomach to look at it and if the community would ever truly accept it.

High enough cue... Your not going to get that being a good bulk of the player base left the game due to arty.

I suspect WOT is using three artys to act as fillers for not having enough players.  If the teams are lowered to 12 players during low times then three artys could be eliminated.

You could always do what some of those other haters do and just exit the match.

 

And, in the age of auto-spell check, that's ridiculous, meaning worthy of ridicule, not silly.  So you used the right word in this context at least.

 

Better still, you could accept that arty is here to stay and dealing with it in some form of dignified grace would be in order.  I mean, it IS just a game and it shouldn't trigger anyone to any real degree, should it?

Well, obviously clickers are popular enough as a class that they more or less constantly have 3 per side in a battle. IIRC, clickers were limited back when they were actually mainly a damage dealing class, not like they are now.

 

I think it is time to remove the limit on clickers, or perhaps just increase it to five and see what happens.

@ Treeburst

 

Is your clicking somehow more qualitative?

 

100% of the playerbase are clickers.

 

Not an opinion.  Solid, verifiable fact.

 

 

Things that make you go hmm.

No, for most of the vehicles you are not clicking on a top down map - you are driving around looking for good angles, hard and soft cover, looking to occupy key areas and/or deny the other team the opportunity to do the same.

 

Clickers sit in one spot and click on a pretty map.

No difference except in your mind.

 

Clicking is clicking.  Your clicking is no better than anyone else's.

 

Again, not an opinion.  Just solid verifiable fact.

 

I respect your skills.  Your attitude, though -- it could use a bit more open-mindedness, considering this is just a game and not something important.

Not getting constant 3 per side at all.  Good variety today, and low arty pop at the end, for me.

 

WG should try removing the limit, or 5, agreed.
