Hi all,

 

I'm getting really annoyed by this issue. I play german artillery wich is very slow... and I'm getting spoted by fast scouts in many maps before I can get to cover, especialy when team is going all one side.

 

I can't do nothing but get destroyed after 20 sec of game... I'm trying to do arti personal missions for T55A but it will take me years since i'm gettng killed at start in 25 to 35% of games depending on map and type of game...

 

Do other artillery player have a solution ?

 

Thx and enjoy the game !

Some would say this is what you get for playing arta. Karma, its happening right now.

As arta player i have tried everything to stop my arta from getting spotted.

I prayed to our True Lord and Savior SerB (Blessed be thy name, peace be with you) for 4 times a day.

After two weeks, my arta is protected against lights. They do not see me anymore.


As for other artas, my thin foal hat which i play with, makes sure no other arta can see my chemtrail when i shoot behind a bush.

 

I hope this info works for you. If you have more questions concerning the blessing procedure or on how to make a thin foal hat, feel free to ask

Play a different (faster) arty line.

The Germans and lower tier Russian are the slowest

Ah, arty getting killed in the first 20 seconds - doesn't matter from which team - the best start of a battle you can have :)

I play SU-14-1, that is far from being fast, but I don't have this problem... there is an high chance just in the north spawn of assault siegfried line, but that's it...

Glad to see the WARPACK mod [view range = 1000] actually works...

The rest of us can't enjoy the game because of arty but hopefully you get killed in 50% to 70% of your games going forward.

 

Cheers

Presumably North spawn Siegfried Line Encounter.  Known issue that no one actually cares about.

It is called karma or justice. If you do get to cover, your victims are dealing with similar issues than you are so it is simply right.

Posting such a request in the forum will only get you abuse and laughter from the 'children' in here.

 

I loved the German arty line, but it's the American arty line where I've done best. Fast, accurate, and very 'deadly'.

As ever, a couple of replays would help.

 

If it's encounter maps then turn that mode off.

 

if it's Ensk then there's not a lot you can do apart from pray for a lucky spawn position or completely useless enemies.

 

Pretty much every other map lets you get to cover unless you are one of those who sits there for ten seconds then presses F twice and trundles backwards.  You have tome to turn round, drive forward and turn round again before you are ready to fire.

Thx for you're aswers guys.

 

My conclusion is that the best solution is to stop playing WOT... I will.

 

Cheers !

As an arty player myself I don't have this problem but pick the faster arty if possible.

Unfortunately forumites can't/won't  help as most are anti arty.

They are forever bleating about arty spoiling their game, well if it wasn't arty it would be cloaked TDs or derp guns or mm or RNG. 

There's nothing better than dropping a large shell onto a tonk:)

Dont stop playing, only reason I play arty is to annoy folks... Oh and because it is a viable class to play.

Don't be so sure that you got spotted. Enemy arty will know where you spawn and can guess which bush you'll hide in. They may take a blind shot.

Also, they will be watching in top down mode. The moment you fire the tracer shows up and they'll target the source, even if they cannot see you.

So, be cautious about sitting in 'obvious' bushes and relocate after every shot.

don't listen to the toxic arseholes here.

 

WoT has been quite unfair to high tier German arties. The solution is to play the USA tree for lights which is good anyway (the USA got some of the most OP lights in the game for tier 6, 7, 8).

Grind the useless Chaffee until you get M41 HMC and work your way up to some of the most pesky arties there are: M44, M12, M40/M43, M53/M55.

He's playing GW Tiger P and says he is destroyed in 20 seconds.  I don't think there is a tier 6 and above arty which loads that fast and can one shot him so it's presumably enemy tanks killing him.

If you want a better chance of losing and not getting your win bonus, yes.
