So... after playing the game for years I used to be an avid arty player. I remember  perma-tracking tanks in my FV304 and speeding away giggling as the enemy chased me. It was a blast! Then they nerfed my most favorite arty in the game but left the M44 unscathed. I got angry (justifiably so) and rage sold all of my arty except for one to do missions in. I’ve been bitter against arty ever since my beloved Bert had been nerfed... please bring it back to its former glory!

The M44 got hit the same as every other SPG. The 304 is still arguably the most fun to play SPG in the game. Not that that's saying much.

I remember stupid fun in Bert as well.  I used to hunt enemy arty in it when the opportunity arose.

How about if they limit arty to 2 per match, and force a rule into MM that 40% of the games must have 0 arty, then sure, buff the 304?

The most fun arty is actually the Leaf Blower.  Yes it maybe slow but, it does have some armor and it's firing rate is awesome but the shell damage just stinks.  All in all it is the most fun arty in this game.

Limit 2 arty per side and then force you out of 40% of your matches would be just fine with me.  It would add some balance.

It's pretty bad really, mind boggling how so many people get so upset by it, it's got to be just because it's a premium.

Bring back the original FV304, but release it at Tier VIII as a Premium vehicle, and WarGaming will get my money.

There was nothing more fun in this game than wrecking Tier X tanks with that little guy.

By the time I got around to playing Bert, it had already had its first nerf. That was when WG gave it its fat a$$. But, it was still really fun to play.

Then, WG nerfed it again during the "Great Arty Nerf". However, I was still able to have loads of fun in it.

The only thing WG did to Bert during all the arty changes that I didn't like was that they snubbed it when it came to "stun ability". Imagine all the glory that could have been had Bert also been able to "stun".

So it wasn't always this slow and lumbering?  :(
