Artillery parties are much a thing of the past these days. We already miss them and want to see a big party in this iteration of the Fun Cup!

Haha, maybe a better name for this event is "Ooops we over nerfed the arty and no-one is playing it" ?? ;)

Yes, it will be interesting to see how many teams will participate. It will be full of french, german and american arties. High tier russian is unplayable.

WG, I hope you realize and take action upon the over-nerf for arties. Organizing an arty-only tournament (that starts on himmelsdorf) won't fix anything. It will only put more salt on the wounds.

The biggest problem with them right now is not that they can't do big damage. It's that you depend on RNG to do that instead of actual skill.
Before 8.6, when I aimed and predicted the movement of the enemy properly I was able to intercept fast moving tanks. They weren't doing huge alpha, but a skilled player could have a constant stream of acceptable damage from most shots.
In 8.6 they are all hard-hitters with slow reload time and you depend on RNG to hit them. It's like all arties are copies of the old T-92.

Most of my friends sold all their arties, even tier 10 ones. I'm keeping them, hoping WG rebalances them and places more skill requirement on them rather than RNG.

PS: i'm not an arty lover or anything. I like playing all tanks, and right now, when I play arty I don't feel my skill impacts the battle at all. I just have to hope for good RNG streaks.

Quick buy back the arty you sold, there is an arty tournament on Himmlesdorf...

Someone has a warped sense of humour.

If there is anything that shows how out of touch with reality WG is it is this.  After the next patch will they have a T50-2 tournament or a memorial service.  So TDs next then medium tanks.

"We have already started to miss the arty-parties we used to experience on a daily basis not so long ago."
Completely disagree, the game is MUCH better without them.

How about instead of "fun cup" you add SPG's to your Specials? They are almost never in any Specials.

It is incomprehensible that having nerfed all of the arty to a point where it is mostly unplayable that you consider an artillery based event starting on Himmelsdorf! Do you even play the game?.

Anyone with half a brain and indeed most of your contributors told you that all you needed to do was limit arty to two per team! Instead you destroyed arty to the point where it is now hardly played.

No apologies to those of us that spent hours grinding to the end of the arty tech trees only to end up with unplayable scrap at a single stroke.

Rather than spend all that time destroying artillery's balance why did you not make more maps, fix the ludicrous crew sounds and sort out a working system to punish team killers. These are the things the community are screaming for and if you played the game or read the forums you would know this.

It is not that I am pro arty it is that I am all for any company listening to it's customers. Wargaming is either arrogant, myopic, or stupid and I am beginning to worry about my investment as I am not sure you can continue to ignore and alienate customers at your current rate.

Before you start chucking the neg reps about I am not an arty boy I play all tanks my favorite being TD'S. Oh and the idiot who is about to try and make himself look like a unicum player by saying that "arty is fine you just need skill to play it now" please don't nobodies buying it you smug berk.

Oh they probably do, but the RUSSIAN ones.  We all know they have a Russian Bias and the RU server gets better crap at an over-welming rate.  But I've heard that even the RU forums share some of our ideals and even THEY don't get listened too.

They've (WG) already shown they're incapable of actually listening to what the player base want, and insist instead on adding other horseshit to the game and then advertising it to reel in new players instead.
