Ideally there would be no arty but yeah, I honestly preferred arty pre-9.18. Getting sent back to garage out of nowhere once in a blue moon beats the hell out of being stunned half the time.

and the highest damage a arty could do is 1650 

 

while the type 5 could do 1750

and the 183mm gunned british tds 2187,5

 

if you take the HE pen and reload into account it even gets funnier

No thanks. Arty is still a plague, but I am glad that the days of tier 9 and 10 tanks being killed in one shot are gone and more than happy that arty no longer has access to their utterly idiotic premium shells.

Yep and that's why they introduced those godzilla tanks with their premium shells and ridiculous damage as an alternative for all those who miss the glory days of late arty.

what premium shells are you talking about ?  most arty premium shells had been premium HE - same damage and ~2m more splash radius

and the heat ammo wasnt really a topic for high tier tanks since you mostly found them on t5-7 arties

No thanks. I don't miss the old arty neither as occasional "artyst" nor as a normal tanker.

If I get hit by some ~300 hit, I know where the shells are coming and either adjust my position or if I want, just eat up the shells while getting rid of the opposition.

The good ol' 1400 ap in the face really recked your game and no reposition could remedy that.

Nope, I can get hit by arty 4-5 times in a game and still actually be alive and have an impact in a game, whereas before I'd get one shot or lose over 50% of my HP to some bob playing easy mode point and click.

 

If you want to do more damage then play a much harder class simple as that. Such an easy to play vehicle with next to no risk should have never had high damage potential.

Maybe if it gets balanced by SPG siege mode and new aiming mechanics, then yes, it is possible to make this class the damage dealer again.

What's the matter? You disabled your bot script and decided to finally play a game yourself again, and thus only now noticed the changes with SPG's?

Yes, type 5 and 183 should be hammered with HE nerfs too. But they should still do more damage than bot-mode HE lobbers.

Play your leFH105 then - only the platoon rules have changed.

tier for tier it's one of the most OP tanks in the game

I hope they make it even less fun to play.  Such a game spoiler when there are 3 of them.

do you ha any idea how many time and game for develop the tier X ??????????

Cazzo !

Please dont say this !

It is riducolus what you say, please try to understand !

I was lucky to buy the leFH105, actually is the only funny arties playable !!!!!

:-)

 

 

I am not disagreeing with your opening post
I have UK and US SPG at T9, and French, German & USSR at T8 - I hardly play them anymore, it is no good that you lose so many credits per game even when you have a good game and are on the winning side, not using gold ammo, not using food, just lose loads of credits.

So I just play my leFH105 and enjoy one shotting those T67s :trollface:

- expensive - Since when?

- no damage - Try shooting at red tanks. Also, you don't really need to do damage in SPGs to help your team and get exp/cr (notice how teamwork comes first)

- not precise - wth?

- it is another game like before - wth?

- no platoon 2 people 2 arty - There ARE SPG platoons again. And franky having 1 per -toon is a far more useful setup for those using it and fighting it, in my opinion.

- annoying - Threads like this? I agree.

 

 

SPGs were never meant to be neither the primary damage dealers, nor being able to destroy single tanks in one go. I'll go even as far as saying that it shouldn't even be the hardest hitter, since they are mostly area targets, although that's debatable.

 

The last 3 patches successfully put arty where it should be: supplementing allied fire. Whether that is done as it could or should depends on the person playing it, which in turn, can be said about every other class. That is one of the reasons why I disagree with others saying "they are point and click, too easy, bla-bla-bla, etc".

 

People who can't or won't play as a team, shouldn't be playing SPGs. The reasons why you believe it not to be fun signal me that you can't and won't.

 

Personally, I like the new arty better than the old one, although I'd revise the stun mechanic and of course, the personal missions.

Fixed.

 

Regardless how much I like the class, it needed this changes.

 

But speaking of which, I think it's time for premium Self-Propelled Guns to hit the market. With the current mech, it makes perfect sense.
