Curious to know how many artillery players are giving up because of the recent changes...or maybe they like they new changes? Are you keeping or selling?

I'm not giving up on arty.  If you do, your a mouse and not a man.  Your just going to have to learn to play arty smarter and better is all.  Now the tracer part needs to go, I can live with it all but the tracer  part is totally irresponsible on WG's  part and shows just how far they will go to cater to a single specific server and we know which one it was.

Keep, this has added entertainment to the game.

Now another group of campers has been made available.

Tds parking behind rocks hurt team, sure, stunning them is great.

An arty who does not move, and is still shooting from usual spots. Well it sure has made CB fun.

Even better are the arty who now wastes time looking for arty who is not there any more.

 

I love watching victims, turning towards the sound detection arrows, just in time to watch the lovely graceful arc of an arty shell.

 

EBR`s, just another light. Usually dead within 90 seconds. Or camped behind a rock sniping.

 

If anything needs fixing. It is the total removal of public stats. I have never seen such a toxic game.

All is a silly quest over pointless numbers.

Allow players to share, but get rid of the juvenile toads, constantly whining about stats.

You do know or maybe you don't RU has the highest percentage of full time arty players of any server. They also have the largest percentage of arty ownership of any server. The finger may well point to EU not RU this time.

Sell your arties, absolve yourself of evil, repent for your sins, cleanse your souls.

I don't have special stats I'm just an average Joe player been in it for 9yrs or so, towards the 8th year I started playing on and off of WoT due to the gradual nerfing of SPGs.  This update is brutal to the SPG line rather, making them useless on the battlefield.  The trajectory ark that's going to wipe us out within 5-8 minutes in gameplay, everyone will know where we shot from or the vicinity, they will slaughter us like cattle.  I loved playing the M53/M55 and the GW Panther those were my go-to favorites in gameplay, I could have gone to the T92 but enjoyed the M55 far better.  It was a challenge grinding to them and it was fun while it lasted, now they are becoming to be trophies.  I won't sell them, just see where WG goes with it or see them as paperweights.

It's like the old days of ap sniping in the 261 all over again. With the new equips and skills you can typically land a shot where you want it at mid map and a bit beyond with long shots across the map being around 50/50.

 

All I know is I wish we had cross chat again when I pen super heavies frontally with it. 334 pen ap. :trollface:

 

Now as to the other arty the regulars everyone normally plays are all just fine. The tier 6 m44 was virtually untouched and the m55 and t92 didn't suffer any drawbacks though the new slightly higher damage he with a small splash is pretty mean if you know you can hit your target.

 

The non meta arty I have no clue about so no idea if the grind to the decent arty is better or worse now.

I have a question about the tracers.  Maybe it's just bad luck and timing, but since the update I have yet to see the start of an arty tracer while in God mode looking to counter battery.  I've seen them go through the view when aiming at other tanks that are on the front line, but if I'm looking for the launch point I have never seen one.  Has it just been bad timing for me, or did WG screw that up too?

Arty can't possibly know it can hit ANY target in this game.

Probably using the 152mm. It has a fast rof and is reasonably accurate but has lower alpha so those hits were in the 200 range on average.

The 261 is ridiculously accurate for an arty at least on a mid to a third of the map away shot and at mid range I can usually target an area like a turret side or engine deck hence the new ap being so satisfying. Any further and you can still land it close but direct hits are a coin flip. The downside is its lower alpha vs other tier 10 arty and lower arc but its mobile so you can always find an angle. With a good crew and the improved equips and food you can land near all your shots for some measure of damage unless its really sketchy and even then I can make some hilarious shots through open windows and holes that other arty cannot. All in all probably one of the more fun arty next to the m55.

Thanks for this analysis!  WoT might have just removed arty from the game for what its worth now, what the hell?  At top tiers arty is useless, and TDs and light tanks have been made useless because of the magic wheelies. All of us who grinded all those vehicles to top tiers are chumps.  Sticking to under Tier 8 almost exclusively these days. I'd love a full refund for a LOT of Tier IX and X tanks. Any chance of that? :D

Well arty isn't my main. I haven't given up on it quite yet. I fought too hard to get the Conqueror GC and many of my arties. Besides, if you're smart and relocate after each shot like you should have been doing all along even without tracers, but especially with them, then getting counter batteried shouldn't be too big of a deal. I just have some other tier X vehicles I have my eye on and that money from arties could go along way towards those.

I played two games since the update and I won't play any more before they fix the "G" view/mouse wheel bug. I'd much rather hunt arty than play it anyways.

Can't you disable that in settings  ?

Maybe, but it wouldn't be a fix, just a band aid. I don't like playing arty enough to bother.
