Why not simply set it to 3 max per team? 5 arties per team on a Tier X battle is devastating enough.

Maximum 3 arties per team!


PS: I hope WG will finally READ our suggestions and understand 5 arties per team is just to much.

First the nerf of arty, and then this news,

it seems complaints are taken into account pretty well.

Positives

WarGaming are listening to the community

Negatives

Five per side is still far too much, it still means 33% of the players are SPGs


It might not be the change we all wanted but it is clearly a step in the right direction.

Why cant you just make a test with max 3 spgs and see whats happens, I also think that 5 is to many.

5 it's just a temporary solution based on your feedback. However this can be changed.
If you have any suggestions please share your feedback here.

Hello all
Please bare in mind the 5 per team limitation for Artillery is not set in stone, this could be subject to change :)

However, we will continue to monitor both data and player feedback to see if additional changes are needed.
Kind Regards

For those who can't access the main portal:

Gameplay balance is as important to us as it is to you.  Whilst we feel that artillery adds a lot to the gameplay by complementing the other vehicles, we understand that having too many SPGS on each team makes for less fun gameplay.  If there are too many of them, the game can slow to a crawl with everyone to worried to leave cover.  As a result we feel that high-tier battles are not as compelling or as exciting as they should be due to the high number of artillery units appearing.

After assessing gameplay data and player feedback, we have decided to make a change.  From now on, there will be a limit to the number of SPGs that can appear on a team in each random battle.  The limit is currently set to 5 SPGs per team.  However, we will continue to monitor both data and player feedback to see if additional changes are needed.
In order to implement this update, the server will undergo a short maintenance on December 29th at 06:00 CET (05:00 GMT) for around 30 minutes.

We hope this change will help you to enjoy the game even more.

MAX 3/team.

Especially in CAMP (high tier) battles.

5 is still far too many

Many high tier games are ruined by arty - 2 or 3 max would be more suitable

Another alternative would be a check box like the one for assault mode to choose to play a game with no arty in

I for one would be happier to wait a little longer in the Q to have a more fun game, many times ive had a good duel with another tank ruined by one of us getting killed by someone halfway across the map with no risk to themselves
