I hate arty I think it spoils the game. Old argument I know because some people love artillery. But would it really hurt to have 2 or 3 days with no artillery? I actually think it would be a very popular event and would be very interesting to see how much it could change gameplay. I think it would work better though if TD's were more limited in the MM because I think that is the next pick for beloved artillery player. I'm sure Wargaming would not entertain it but let's find out if you would like it to happen?

Can we also find out how the game looks like without meds?

[edited]me. I thought we were going to have another arty dedicated weekend special like last year when you could have had a maximum of 5 arties per team IIRC. You scared me. You really did.

Yea sure why not:) would love a weekend such as that, hell i wouldn't even mind if we have other weekends where we remove the other classes too:) can make a weekend special where we even remove 2 of the classes at the same time:P would make the MM strange but the games would be a little different and you know variety being the spice of lice or something.

 

Will see but if we do it for one we have to do it for the other's. (And yes i dont like arty and also believe the game would be better without it but whilst it is still here we will have to deal with it accordingly and fairly...:angry:)

That comes across as not just any-arty but also as anti-anyone who plays arty. You want TD's changed BECAUSE they are the next pick by arty players? A bit prejudiced isn't it?

My measured opinion of what happened the last time arty was nerfed. There was huge spike in TD play. So not prejudice.

how should it change gameplay ? arty hardly got any impact now   100-200 damage here and there or a stun thats lifted by pressing a key ?

 

for arties its even normal to not pen. scouts if you hit em

 

whining about arties couldnt be justified by any reasons/facts its just about personal dislikes

I have a better idea for you (as clearly you don't like getting shot at by either arty or TD's), why don't we have 2 or 3 days without whiners like you? Whats next, you want to have 2 or 3 days without anybody being able to shoot at you because it hurts your win rate?

 

If you don't like getting shot at by arty, hunt down and kill scouts as a priority, don't bunch up at choke points, don't stay still, relocate. Arty is a valid part of the game. If you cant cope with dying to arty fire after 38K battles, its time to move on.

Not to mention that we actually had an arty free mode one, Historical Battles. But oddly enough there seemed not to be as much arty haters around as some forumites try to claim, and due to lack of participation Historical Battles were taken off after a few months.

 

Sorry, dear arty haters, you already had an arty free mode but you thoroughly managed to botch it up by not playing it.

Personally, I'd love to play arty on that weekend. Special MM: 15 arties vs 15 arties.

 

That would be pure comedy gold.

I didn't open a post to attack people. I would suggest that if you want to throw stones at me that you get some experience yourself. After looking at your personal record it would seem that you need to take your own advice.

We need an entire week as most of us don't play on weekends for obvious reasons.

I think we would all benefit from a DINGER free weekend   :)

 

Although WG wouldn't like it as there would be a huge dip in gold ammo purchase  :P

Well my measured opinion is based on actual measures. After 9.18 in April 2017 when arty was "nerfed" there was a spike in medium tank play, and as you can see from the server stats TD numbers stayed pretty static. Maybe you were prejudiced in your view?

 

Data in the spoiler if you can be bothered.

 

Spoiler

 

The data is only as accurate as wot-news, but it's the best there is.

 

If you want to start an arty thread it helps not to blindly fire off into the forum hoping to hit your target.

 

Would it be possible to have an "arty thread" free weekend instead?

The arty debate will NEVER go away, so split the difference.

 

Make a no-arty server and an arty server for the EU & RU regions over the weekend. As the customer is always right, no one will be able to cry "butt-hurt" to the other party as people vote with their feet.

 

WG will obtain a real measure of how arty is perceived and whether or not it is a problem which will settle this debate forever.
