I haven't got a link to it, but because the game displays where arty is shooting from, there is currently a hack that locates enemy arty based on where they are shooting from.

 

I have been on the receiving end of this several times now in my FV304. If I was in any other arty I would say, "sucks, I was in a known arty location", but with the FV I can relocate anywhere.

Sure you can, the problem is your range means you'll have to be right behind a pushing front, and the FV still makes a trace.

You do know that arty has a tracer that is visible to enemy arty, even if you are not spotted? So you don't need the red ball mod to see it.. As the new arty view gives a wider eye to see the tracers and spot their location. As now you can cover 3-4 grids vs just the one if you have the right angle. So it's easier vs before to counter arty if they don't move. With or without red ball mod. Shoot and move always, if you don't see you get countered in the first few min's... then don't worry about it.

No, there is no "arty location hack", as there are no known hacks available for WoT.

There is a cheat called "Redball", that displays the origin of the tracers each artillery-shot makes.

Cheating, mods and the res_mods-folder in WoT

It is a particular mod available to every player in WoT which displays a "tracer" from every arty shell fired. The origin of this tracer can then be used to score a direct hit on an enemy arty.

I used to get blindshotted by enemy arty all the time. Naturally, they're filthy stinking hackers, because lucky shots don't exist.

Counter battery is actually pretty easy, nowadays. Artysts just got to relocate after each shot. You aren't supposed to camp anyways, Even less so when SPGs have a wider splash.

theoretically yes,

but that would require out of band network comms.

 

I'd rather put in something into [insert modpack here] that gets arty position of teams

and sell secret code for players to always see enemy arty :)

When I play arty I usually go hunting for enemy arties between my shots. If I can see your tracer, I will shoot you blind :D

 

the PMs after the battle make it even sweeter. :D
