I have never got much of a buzz out of those games where you one shot a couple of tanks and that's most of your damage, preferring more attritional supporting play.   (HE not HEAT on my M44).

 

I have the US arties up to tier 9 (which are fun enough at 4,6,8 and 9, imo) and I'm hoping they suit the new style.

 

Has anyone looked into this in more detail?

By the look, no-one knows.

Get the Bison, the only tier 3 SPG in the game that has stun shells :)

I have French and American, for USA.  All arty looks weak after the patch (i.e. it's only balanced because the other team gets a super weak arty too).  That said, the best of the worst are:

M44 looks good.  Stun, some alpha, mobility, and a good rof.  Slightly lacking in accuracy but for tier 6 it's pretty good.

M53/55 still ok.  Decent accuracy/mobility/aim/etc and some alpha.

 

On the French line from what I can see the tier 6-10 all basically do about the same damage?  There really isn't any progression at all, say you did the same thing to russian heavies it's like having  a T150 with the 107mm gun at tier 6, and then giving the IS7 the same gun with a buff to rof and accuracy, and a tiny buffs to damage and pen.  Hence pointless playing high tiers.  The tier 6 however has bad aim/accuracy.  The tier 7 Lor 155 50 fixes that and is pretty close to the tier 10 now in performance so might as well stop there.

The Bison was already great (many avoided it and missed one of the greatest opportunities in the game) and now it even gets better. The only sad part: due to the 3-5-7 MM it won't get into matches with 4 to 6 tier V heavies anymore (those were a feast) so I guess I won't put it back in my garage after all.

 

But in remembrance of the old matches:
