Its a beautiful weekend out there, no need to be target in 4+ arty matches.

 

inb4 someone  from WG says  "but,but,dat mission, you can kill them"...

 

crew x2 is decent, rest is less than meh.

 

 

edit: ANOTHER arty special was like 15 days ago, right? and top of the tree french arty ended today? srsly...

great arty special. Moar clickers. Will be just like last arty special: The stronk skillered playerers aim for the bottom tier scouts. They dont care if they move. They hit anyways because RNG. We need more of that. ("also LTP to avoid arty": Yeah, I will hug a rock all game long in order to be completely inefficient. "Welp, move then"! "Skilled" clickers click you anyways even if you move: Arty is a pure RNG fest. Yes, I even got blapped moving erratically in scouts while heavies where sitting still right next to em -.-)
Had a lor of fun two weeks ago. Want that again.
I never thought that I would write this but I guess I will substitute WoT with War Thunder this weekend.
I can stomach a lot, but clicker galore is not something I like. Bad special is bad.
Instead of more arty specials how about an RNG special? At the start of the battle every player has a 20% chance to get nuked by an orbital death laser.

Oh no, you will force people with 2 bit brains to think in 3 frigging dimensions, how cruel of you. Some heads will surely explode when they try to figure out where the artillery cover is.

 

On a more serious note, this will mean I will finish this lovely "Operation Super Pershing" a whole week earlier than I thought, thank you WG. :great:

meanwhile in russia, 2x exp for every victory "for easier Superpershing grind". Same in asia, but worse (need to be in top5 dmg and top10 dmmg assistance at the same time). US - nobody knows for now. [edit - yep, US also got 2x exp for every victory]

 

But Ectar/Obrien/whatever will come and say how excited he is and he will grind his arty or whatever during weekend.

Wow, so your solution is to stay arty safe all game long?
Suppose I want to actually play. I need to go out of arty cover and might get spotted. Result: BLAPPED by arty.
Also... how do I stay arty safe if there are more than 2 artys in one game? You do not know where they park their clicker. You do not know which positions are safe and which positions are not.
For short: Unless you camp in cover all game long there is no way to stay arty safe. You can only try to dodge their shots. But that is only delaying ther orbital death laser. Because he only needs to get the blessing of RNGesus once to ruin your game.

Why you are encouraging people to play arty after the "nerflikehell" patch 8.6?

well, it is completely logical to put two arty specials in last three weekends. if you look in queuing before every battle there is like 200 lights, 300 meds, 400 tds, 500 heavies and 20 arties, nothing wrong with that, really. i guess wg eu is worrying that we will get spoiled with good special last weekend, so this time we won't have any special at all.

You just don't get the hint, do you, Wargaming? A lot of people dislike SPGs. You literally just had a special for SPGs that was pretty awful, and also had a top of the tree event for a SPG. You really want to push players away from the weekends, don't you? Unless people enjoy playing a game with about 8 battle tanks and the rest a bunch of suicidal light tanks eager for SPG kills, and SPGs blaming their teams for not protecting them. Good  I have better things to do than play tanks this weekend...

Dont care about the arty special.... but ×2 xp on other servers for easier 'supergrind'? thats just no fair...

difference in specials ok... but not when it has such big impact on a big special like win a tier 8 heavy...

Arty Special. Oh look, nice weather this weekend, time to go out to the parks, have Barbecue with friends and family, and generally ignore WoT, until the Special  abomination is over.

Again? Have you gone mad?

Make an option to hide our stats already. I might not be a unicum but I find myself being the best in my team many times. It's not fun when 2+ arties are always focusing on you. I can't even imagine the focusing unicums get.
