I am sure this has come up before but I haven't been able to locate the thread.

 

I play all vehicles so I don't mind artillery in a match but what I do mind is three artillery.  If I'm playing as an artillery or playing agaisnt one I hate seeing three.  Why can't wargaming limit the amount of artillery to two only per match.  It would be best for everyone in my opinion.

I'm of the opinion they should remove the 3 cap limit and let the player base decide how many get into each match when they click that battle button.

the stated, and obvious answer is because there wouldn't be any arty-free games if the queues were never flushed of arty players.

 

imho the solution is relatively easy.  make the rewards less rewarding for those that spend a ton of time playing arty - especially at mid-tier.  this way those that are physically or mentally limited can still continue to participate in the game playing the class, it can still be used for personal missions, and still ground/used to have on hand for competitive comps but perhaps some of the folks that use it chiefly to grief won't play it as much.

 

hard to say, but I long have advocated that the rewards system needs revamping.  risk should impart higher rewards - and those that don't participate, and/or participate from the redlines should get dramatically less rewards.  (this might also solve the problem where folks RRR or afk their way to tier 10)

I didn't know the player base was able to pick how many of which tanks are in a match. I must not have seen that in settings...

They should limit the number of arty to 1 per team after they limit it to 2 per team. That would also be best for everyone. :rolleyes:

And how would that work since the player base has no control over who gets in to any match?

It is basically just allowing as many arty into battle as would be allowed, just remove the 3 cap limit, if players don't want to play arty then they don't but why should the amount allowed in one battle be capped?

I am for another solution.

1 SPG per team in normal battles, rest of them land in battle with only SPG's and wheelies.

30% games with 3 arty

30% 2 arty

30% 1 arty

and 10% with none.

 

2 per game would ensure almost 100% with 2 arty.

 

Watch the queue, it fluctuates a lot but one fifth or close to it, of the players are waiting for artillery.

They pay just as much as anyone else, so losing a huge pile of money upsetting a lot of customers makes little sense. Better to lose a few who refuse to see the game is designed this way to frustrate and challenge players. Entertain themselves figuring out how to play with all 5 classes. Those so frustrated by arty and that 3rd dimension, and unwilling to figure it out are few.

 

And for those who somehow believe , like  Sus scrofa airborne, that only they should get to play, or even dumber, all should study (what a friggin idiotic concept, study to play an arcade game) to play a mere game like they do.

He believes that since he has decided a great hobby is studying a mere arcade game, all should follow his weird hobby.

So, every time someone like Airborne Sus scrofa above, complains about others gameplay and lack of willingness to waste their time studying. Change 2 of his win stats to a draw.

WG should ban all of the suiscouts... 

 

Especially those that actually believe they are good and associate with Junka the Rager... :great:

 

 

Hilarious to see LordSuiscout on the red team during the battle countdown, and the green team chat immediately fills with the only thing LordSuiscout knows how to do, which is to YOLO through the middle of the map. Epic fail at its worst, yet hilarious to witness... :facepalm:

 Just pull them from the que, as fast as they arrive!

 

 If they do manage to kill every last "real tank" in the game. Giggles commence when 3+ SPGs have to go TD mode hunting one another to win the game!

 

 Make no mistake some arty players know how to do more then just hug the red line!

I have seen games with 7 light tanks of which 5 were wheelies, I wouldn't mind seeing a cap on those.

^^^ This!   I remember having those matches and even if I was one of the 3, 4, or 5 tanks on the team and got clobbered by the SPG feat, it was flipping hilarious!   Yes, this doesn't always bode well for stats but no one is offering me a scholarship or high paying job (or any job at all) if my tank stats are good, so I don't care!   But yeah, when the non-SPGs were wiped out and it was just a bunch of SPGs left, it was so darn funny!
