While doing arty missions for the upcoming camos(thanks for forcing me to do this to get them, really) I noticed WG fixed arty. They fixed arty missing that is. If you can be bothered to fully aim then between the splash radius and stun it's almost impossible to miss a shot now. I don't know if this or the RNG lottery it was is better anymore, because this is just filthy. 

 

B-but, they fixed the alpha:

B-but, you can hulldown and arty will hit you less:

Or you could just like move really fast and try to get unspotted:

So you can hide in cities still right?:

Calling the current iteration of arty child's play is so vastly underestimating underestimating a child's intelligence that it's frankly insulting. A more fitting name would be [edited]play.

 

Moreover I think it's a very bad idea that WG incentivize arty play with more PMs where you can't skip the arty missions this time and camos where you have to do ALL secondaries instead of just 75 of any secondary. The new system isn't simplified or more easy to understand, it's more convoluted and requires you to play the class you least like be it heavies, TDs or arty almost completely if you want the rewards.

We cannot call it fix since it didnt need fixing.
They changed it to make less damage and hit more often plus stun.
It is diffeent now. It was awesome before, it is awesome now, but in a different way

And what is your real account? Or is this the first one?

 

Ofc arty is still stupid, maybe even more than before. Arty gameplay is completly disconnected from the game. Its a click simulator. Thats it. THe little skill needed before it was changed got removed when they lowered aimtime, increased splash and accuracy.

They fixed it?

Maybe they could fix it so that players below a certain 'skill threshold' shouldn't even be allowed to aim at you?

Hull down tank takes 100+ damage .... that's ok

 

Jagdtiger takes 186 damage ...... that's ok.

 

Unarmoured vehicle gets penetrated and takes full damage ..... that's ok

 

OP hates the idea of indirect fire .... that's ok

 

Working as intended - nothing to see here.

Nice post OP.  Unfortunately you now face trolling from those that can't even play arty with any degree of competence.  Enjoy.

 

Aww & you provided evidence they'll just ignore as well.

No just add an RNG layer: Whenever you fire your gun in arty there is a 50% chance that the shell will explode in the barrle leading to the destruction of the vehicle.

Hulldown tank actually took 591 damage from a tier lower tank that isn't even doing anything other than aiming. Not ok in my book.

 

Jagdtiger took 200 damage a track and a stun from a complete miss but got killed either way because tracked TDs don't do well against being flanked. Not ok in my book.

 

Unarmoured vehicle on the other side of the map being pinned down behind a rock literally cannot do anything anymore to evade at least a 500 damage splash and instead gets penetrated for almost his entire HP pool. Not ok in my book.

 

Instead of fixing arty they just changed it so now it can't not influence games on every shot anymore. No longer is it taking multiple shots until you get that one amazing pen that saves your shitty game. Instead you just [edited]over people so consistently and with such little effort involved that it's frankly disgusting.

This just in, aiming fully provides better accuracy. Coming up next, we ask if the Pope is still Catholic and we'll check out the defecation preferences of bears. Film at 11.

0/10 trolling attempt strapp, I expected better of you. 

 

But then this being another arty topic probably taxed you a bit.

If you're not going to make any effort to be original, why should I?
