How many percent of your games is ruined by artillery by them shooting you and taking your hp, modules, crew or by them focusing you, ending a potentially great game etc. 

 

If I had to average it out I would say in 50% of the games that I play artillery has enough of an impact to dramatically worsen my end results.

it seems worse than it is because it's so damn annoying, some bad days can be 50% other days I hardly get hit, so realistically it's only about 20% (playing tiers 5 - 7 mostly, some 8's)

Another arty topic.....

To say arty ruins your game is somewhat disingenuous.

Could say the same about the other classes.

Some well camouflaged TD sniping you, does that ruin your game?

Being one shotted by a Derp gun, does that ruin your game...

Need I go on I think not..

Have a nice day

I don't acknowledge this pathetic description of a game being "ruined."  

 

I you are getting affected by SPGs half the time you are definitely doing something wrong.

According to my profile page, 5% but some of those I was playing with LeFU so a little less.

I am much more frustrated by OP T8 Premiums that I can't penetrate with my standard T6 tank than I am with getting hit by arty...
I get hit more by unseen TD's than I do by Arty - that's more frustrating too.
 

I voted 0%, Arty is part of the game, I can't vote that 20% of my games are ruined by RM Skorpion G's or STRV S1's - but they are much more annoying to me than Arty

Take alone the Presence of Arty - you have to hide the Entire Game... so i would say 80% of my Games are ruined by Arta.

Voted 10% & likely lower. I mainly drive slow heavies & got accustomed to arty shelling me. The rework to arty has helped alot in making matches involving artillery alot less frustrating. Can't really remember last time arty ruined a match for me. Yea I get shot at, it's annoying, but ruining is a step further. If i'm on low HP & the arty shells me, i expect no less of him, almost any other tanker would do the same if he could lay a killing blow.

 

Ruined as in making it hard/impossible to play due to them? Very few matches since the rework tbh. Before arty rework it was much more common, but ever since the damage reduction & area increase, they've been far less annoying.

 

If 50% of your matches are negatively impacted by arty shelling you, you're doing something wrong tho.

You mean like playing in the frontlines and trying to push the flanks? 

 

I suppose if I was a pathetic red line camper I'd also never have a problem with arty.

My battles are pretty bad most times that I play artillery. Every now and again they are AWESOME, however. http://wotreplays.com/site/3019153#live_oaks-powjay-m40_m43 Three 1-shot kills.

 

I haven't tried SPGs since the stun mechanic was introduced. Not one battle.

Attitude stinks.  I'm frankly glad you can't hack it against SPGs.  The English word for this feeling of joy at another's misfortune is epicaricacy.

When friendly arty tracks and stuns you in attempts to 'help' or, much more likely, blatant kill steal attempts, I think it is fair to say arty ruins your games sometimes. On that basis, I would say that arty screws up my games in around 30% of my games. This percentage goes up dramatically if I only look at my games in scouts or light meds.

noticeably less than 1%, so please add this option too.

 

other than that, 100% is impossible as there are games without arty quite frequently.

Wasting energy to feel malicious pleasure for some random person over the internet, the english word for that is loser.

Yes.
It isn't.
No you can't.
Even they need to have a direct line-of-fire to you.
Read above. And most derps need to get close in order to hit and hit your side (if not playing a LT).
No, you don't need. All your arguments were awful.
Step on a Lego.

Certainly less frequently than being 1 shot by TDs.

I'd say maybe 1 in 20 games and only on a specific map does it happen because of cover problems to attack the defenders.

Rest of the time, if arty focuses it means I'm in a bad spot anyway, plus when driving a TD I move after getting spotted so seldom have a problem.
