Can they be done in the lefh shooting only prem ammo?  ...only doing counter-clicker ?  

 

If not ... I'll most likely just skip them considering how utterly boring clicking is ...

Nope.

 

LeFU is good for the top exp, damage x different types, survive missions but there's not enough hitpoints in arty to get them.

 

Arty is hilarious to play though, just the way people sit there while you reload for 24 seconds and let you slap them around over and over. Especially the ones who think they got behind an arty safe rock and didn't consider you might relocate - probably because it's something they never consider to do when they are getting hit either.

 

I especially like to punish those light tank drivers who camp the middle ridge of Porkherover at 60km/h.  That's most satisfying.

Wanted to do it before doing the rest but it's even more of a pita watching how your teammates play like a really dumb chimp from above.

yes and then they whine when arty hits them, plenty of threads on this very forum and at least 2 new ones every week. You would think they would learn....

I only did the arty missions to get the missions done, but a side effect is that I've learned more about arty tactics (and anti-arty) than I aready knew.

 

Relocating really seems to confuse people. Quite a lot of them either don't realise that arty can move (or most arty players don't bother). Counter arty fire is another fun way to pass the time, I didn't have to get blind fired much before I learned to reloacte between shots. Surprising how many other arty don't bother even when they take incoming fire. Or reloacte 10m away and carry on shooting. :arta:

Welcome:)

At the very least, maybe you can learn a thing or two about countering farty:izmena:

Or, just take it like a man and move on :arta:

Pro tip: when the battle is lost, drown or find a nearest wall/rock to shoot point blank.

Why? Is there something the matter with you, or have you got a hard manual job?

 

Edit: By the way, I see you are far, far better in everything else except SPGs! They are quite hard to play, aren't they.

I was shelling one of them they Tiger things in Himmelsdorf, with the FV304 I've just got out for its first run since July. He very obligingly sat there for qutie a while, moving back and forth a fraction from time to time. I got a "Sharpshooter" medal! ROFL!

NEVER! :izmena:

 

There is always the chance to do some ramming damage as the enemy fall over themselves trying to get the last kill.
