The problem with arty is getting targeted by 3 of them at the same time. New stun mechanics did not change that. Its extremely frustrating to lose half your modules and crew on higher tiers or get perma stunned + tracked by a funny guy in LefH on lower tiers.

I think WG should introduce something like resistance to arty that builds up after you get hit multiple times and disappears when you don't.

  1. Get hit
  2. 20% resistance to stun + damage + module damage for next X seconds (15-20 seconds
  3. Get hit again
  4. 40% resistance
  5. ... 
  6. Whenyou are not stunned one level of resistance drops every 10-15 seconds

Can you please upload a replay where you get stunned by a LefH. Would love to see that ...

Limit arty to two per team and keep it from being toptier. Done.

And introduce a badge of total awesomeness you get when you get "focused" (getting hit once by both arties), so people can feel even more awesome when they get hit by arty.

I voted no, but really I should not have voted due to the options as presented. No indicates that you agree their is a problem but don't want it fixed. Personally I don't see focusing as a problem in the first place. If you get spotted then, by the very fact that the enemy can see you, you may be the only target to all members of the enemy team. Whilst passive spotting and before 6th senses lit up I was hit from all sides and died. I understand camouflage better now.

There are relatively few 3xSPG games.

XVM focus seems to be an issue - in-game player stats being the issue - but WG don't seem to want to do anything about it.

While you are occasionally focussed, the rest of your TEAM are not being shelled, which should be an advantage.

You can use your re-usable consumables, which many people (& I) find quite handy.

You have made a faux pas. He did not say that (although some have said very similar! :) ).

As an avid arty player, yes they do exist, I would agree that 3 SPG is to many.

As far as focussing specific players then no, don't use XVM. I only go for the easier targets, slow moving TDs/ HTs and campers.

Can't, or very difficult, to hit a fast moving target.

But if I see a tank that is tracked from my eye in the sky well then it becomes a target.

Also remember that higher tier SPG have a very long reload time/aim time. If you are getting focussed then time to relocate.

XVM focus is a myth, well to be more exact. The solution to remove xvm will help to remove the focus is a myth.

Rubbish. People have said in these forums that they use XVM for just such a purpose, haven't they. Even sometimes in the game one sees "Focus player XYZ"; even before play has started.

OK, so YOU put a figure on it, then. Bet you can't or won't.
