2 curiosities 

 

always 3 artillery per game in ranked battles, but rarely any in randoms any more, theories?

 

also in ranked battles the maps are mostly made up of the 'good' maps, malinovka, prokhorovka, murovanka.  never seen Pilsen, paris, mountain pass, highway (worst map in game?),  but as I have threaded before I hardly ever see malinovka or prokhorovka in random battles so why ranked get all the good maps?

  • SPGs are no longer effective (according to some players)
  • SPGs no longer inflict the heavy damage as before.
  • SPGs no longer have the penetration they had before.
  • The number of SPG players is dwindling due to the above reason.
  • SPGs have little penalties in playing the Ranked Battles.

 

#BecauseReasons

 

People have been waging a long standing war to remove artillery from this game and they have succeeded. Only it backfired. The result is this which you are experiencing.

Easy to get tokens with a class that requires almost no skill.

If we would have been succesful, there would be no arty in game. Arty still is a-decease-that-kills-but-shall-not-be-mentioned-for-some-reason.

Maybe if you had read betweeen the lines you know that SPG drivers going from one mode to another would explain the said imbalance.

 

But for others that may be interested: SPGs seem less attractive and people are abandoning them. Those who chose to remain with the class are trying the new mode because they want to, want the new gear etc. which will make SPGs decline in Random Battles and increase in Ranked Battles. Which is self-explanatory.

I fail to see the decline of SPG in random.

 

The only factors that could have impacted are the huge amount of city maps in rotation and the fact that they cannot form trolling platoon of clickers.

 

But for the rest is more deadly than ever. :coin:

Music to my ears.

Ranked battles has a limited map rotation, I forget which ones but if you look up the news article about it then it tells you.
