OK every one is getting a Obj 260 now. I am starting to get jealuos. I am stuck on a few mission for the other classes. So wargaming is forcing me to play arty. So my question is: would you recommend me to do the T28HTC arty missions in the tier 8 Britisch arty? Are those missions hard or easy to do? If I complete those mission I will get the Obj 260.

Cheers.

WG is not forcing you to do anything.

Actually they are. If you do arty mission the chances of getting the obj 260 is soooooooooooooooo much higher. So if I want this insane advantage I will need to buy arty as well. But lets stop this discussion already.

You should be able to do that in any tier 8 arty. Just use stock gun for faster reload, you typically don't need higher alpha or splash.

But if I dont need to use the best gun on the tier 8 arty then its maybe better to play the Crusader SP on tier 7?

Easiest would be to have one rapid fire arty that still stuns a fair amount, and then for some missions (stun 3 vehicles with one shot for example) the biggest gun with the largest splash you can find.

 I don't think so, the gun may be too weak and stun duration not sufficient for your team to do damage. Does it even stun? Cause I think it's Bert's gun on SP and it doesn't even stun.

 

Edit: if you want a holy grail of low-ish tier arty go for G.W. Panther. Good stun, good accuracy, reasonable aiming time, reasonable splash, fast reload. But again, you should be able to do them all in tier 8 Brit. I think I did mine in Hummel/G.W. (before the arty and mission change though).

You need two arty. One that fire's rapidly and one that has high alpha.

If you have a KV-2 (which I assume you have) you can get the S-51 without grinding the whole russian line. That does well for the high alpha. For the rapid fire, I recommend the French artillery. Or, if you want to take a shortcut, unlock the M41 from the chaffee, then grind the M44.

I dont really want to invest too much credits equipment and crews in artys. After the mission set I will insta-sell them and never touch them again.

No, they're really not. Just because you perceive it as being easier to follow all 5 classes, it still doesn't mean anyone is pushing you in that direction.

 

You know where's the real "insane advantage"? When you get to play only 4 classes, still get the tank like before, but also get to recruit a female crew member without ever playing with any arty (or whatever class you don't want to play with). And because of that, I could argue that, before these changes, you were more likely to be "forced" to play arty, as that was the only way to get the 5th girl.

Well If i have the choice between grinding a full tank line. Maus or STRV wich will take me hours and hours and hours. Not to forget about the premium account en free xp. I can play arty for a few battles and just skip 15 missions!!!!!:ohmy: Then wow I think playing arty the most hated and easiest class in the game is suddenly a MUST for people that dont want to invest so much time in grinding all the other needed tanks for the misions. 

 

But yeah now I will get my obj 260 just like a lot of other people basically for free :teethhappy:. Now I can just play arty and watch Netflix at the same time. And the funniest part is that I get a huge advantage over other players that refuse to play arty.

It will be very interesting to see how well you do in this extremely easy to play class.

smart choice  there might never be   new missions requiring you to buy and equip them again   but then again i guess you need to do it to  not be disgusted by yourself ...

life as a haterboy must be hard ...
