A lot of people are fed up with arty in ranked as it has been stated many times. However I realy have to ask what is the mindset of these people playing arty in ranked.. in a mode that is supposed to test your skill.

Who cares what the game mode is supposed to do?  It is all about how the game mode actually works.  If you can play it with arty, people will play it will arty.  Do you really think that people think: Hey a new game mode. I can play arty with it, but some people think it is too easy for arty. Lets not play arty?

Essentially my reaction.

 

A guy said to another SPG driver:

Learn weakspots, learn map positioning, git gud, etc, [typical rant here].

 

This raises a question... Do Type 5H drivers need to learn weakspots in order to produce damage?

 

 

 

Still waiting for the answer...

 

On another subject. I preferred your old avatar, LRS. WIll take me some getting used to :)

Type 5 is just as easy as arty. 

Point at enemy, shoot.

 

It can't angle armour in a good way.

It doesn't need to aim for weakspots.

 

So. Drive to preferred area.

Put yourself in front 

Point gun at enemy and shoot.

Retreat until reloaded. 

Repeat.

Felt the need for a change. Now we've voted for Brexit it didn't seem polite to be blasting a Frenchman at short range.........and it was pointed out to me that it is in fact a very short range sniper!

Most excellent.

 

Yet, Type 5H drivers are not carrying the infamous "Edited" that burdens SPG players. Why is this...? Maybe double standards is the way to go with such people...

They have exactly the same mindset as all the players playing ranked with a full gold loadout. Arty is effective at getting XP and consequently good for racking up chevrons as is spamming gold at anything that blinks.

t5h and maus get pummeled by gold, so there's that

 

to the point, clicking in ranked is easy to get top 3 since everyone usually stays together on a corner, seen 5-6 ppl getting hit 3 times before getting the memo

Well the main factors are:

 

- Stun AND track damage count as assistance damage. Very easy to farm on most maps in the ranked rotation

- if there is more then one arty, then they can share the stun assistance damage between their hits

- ALOT of corridor heavy maps.

- Only two city maps (Himmels and Ruinberg) and arguably even on these maps, the skilled arty player knows his spots.

- many medium group brawls on alot of maps make for an amazing target. Lob one shell into a crown of 5 mediums with gold HE and harvest the stun assistance damage.

 

And not just "average" players play them. I saw more and more very skilled players play them and then they become even a bigger problem.
