Artillery is not lethal enough to be feared.

Given the fact that artillery can not spot their own targets, and are terribly vulnerable once the enemy has pierced defenses, there NEEDS to be compensation to make artillery more lethal.

Increase point damage

Improve accuracy (for heaven's sake - it is artillery -- very accurate)

Reduce aim time

Reduce load time SIGNIFICANTLY (by half)

Fire multiple rounds simultaneously (or in quick order)

--

That would do for a start.

7,600 battles in your M44. 7,600! You're just upset your precious M44 got nerfed, and these are some of the most unthought out ideas ever. C'mon man...

So sorry you can't continue to seal club in your M44 for another 7K games, pathetic.

This has been true for arty ever since the game was released. So crying for "compensation" NOW is just a sign that you're upset about the recent arty changes.

 

And, if YOU can't figure out a way to still make arty "lethal", that's on you. Plenty of other players can still make it work for them.

 

I won't even get started on your recommendations for "improving" arty.

Such generous comments and recommendations. Thanks.

Some folks, like myself, enjoy the skill and tactics of playing artillery.

But I played several matches in random battle today where artillery was literally over-ran so quickly. Partly this is due to the other players on the team not having knowledge or respect for artillery support.

If you don't like my position or opinion - that is fine, but it is a little childish to attack me personally for my views.

You need to learn to play tank-safe.

To play an EFFECTIVE arty is actually very difficult. Its like scout tanks, any moron can hop in one and zoom into the enemy team and light up 13 tanks and get blown up in 10 seconds, but it takes skill to be effective.

Arty is always going to stink playing it, and having it played against you. Im pretty terrible in my arty, most of the time you can't hit anything and you're just waiting for a reload, and the battles lately end in 5 minutes so you get maybe... 3-4 shots out before either the enemy team dies or yours. Blowouts are terrible for arty. You just have to have a perfect game to do good in a arty, have to get the right maps, the right team, the right tanks to fight against. Its too unpredictable and out of my hands for me to want to play often.

If you get your butt whooped by a arty in some random battle... you just know.. that player probably played 10 crap games to get that 1 good battle. The arty numbers in matchmaking seem to have got much smaller though since all the rework. I dont even want to call them "nerfs". I was able to land all 3 AP rounds in my tier 10 bat chat arty against a E100... that wasnt able to be done previously, that was like 1500 damage.

I had to get away from playing arty a long time ago. I figured out real quick that most players don't defend arty or try to spot for him. Most of the LT's and TD's that could be spotting usually just rush the enemy line and get shot. And too when I do lay back to protect arty in some games in my MT or TD, the arty doesn't even try to hide in bush or in other cover, they just sit out in the wide open, visible for miles. 

 I do still try to protect them though and will actually go put myself between him and advancing tanks.
