Honestly, I find arty fine at this point except for one really stupid and annoying thing. Why the hell can they knock out more than 1 crew member from a single splash that doesn't even do over 100 damage? It's happening so frikkin often recently to me. The stun isn't that bad, I don't have that much of an issue with it. But when it also knocks out 1 or 2 crew members, it leaves you completely useless in most situations. I've started running large first aid kits on most of my tanks because of it.

Totally agree with the OP.

 

On a total aside, it's quite spooky that as you were writing this, you were getting a mention in a post of mine.

And there you have it, you answered your own quest.

 

You are therefore using more resources and possibly spending more money on the game.

Issue is that as far as I've understood how it works now. Module damage from arty... or HE is now based on what is inside the 45 degree cone the impact creates. Even if it don't hit your tank and fully pens, but lands on the ground. It will still make this 45 degree area pointing towards your tank, and anything caught inside it will be damaged. That's fine and dandy. Expect then the armor thickness should have an effect to cover your modules more, as the damage is external, not internal. And not just base the module damage on what is inside the cone. And again... as far as I've understood it.

The problem with arty is that it exists. In my opinion the new support arty mechanic is a total disaster. Far more annoying and damaging than the previous one. I prefer the old mechanics and there must be max 2 arties per game.

There are still various problems with arty, but with the redesign we're quite close to a solution.

 

Crew damage is too random, indeed.

Highrolls on soft targets should get tuned down a bit more.

And, most important, arty should NEVER be toptier. Restricting tX arty to tX matches or removal of some tiers, I don't care. But having toptier arty is just like having old arty in the match.

I don't really care what it does, it's always going to be a disease of gameplay. The only change I'm asking for is a hard cap of one.

You seem to have a problem with spelling too, despite the editing.

You seem to have a malfunctional brain, hence the 51% winrate.

Got me there, but there's no need to offend the little one.

There also exist a lot of other tanks that screw up the gamebalance. But you happily use those for padding. :P

Also, calling someone an over average player is a quite bad insult...

if the OP runs  large repkit, auto ext. and rations  replacing rations with large medkit would improve their earnings ? 

 

also the medkit might be used anyway to end the stun

Average in this game means complete trash. Congratulations!

well there are ppl that claim that their rating is exactly the border- 1 point less than him/her would make you a complete retard without any understanding of the game and its mechanics ...

 

can be quite funny if you see superunicums or unicums  fight each other in teamchat about whos the bigger noob of em ...

No, not really. Get off your high horse.
