Has anyone else noticed that along with the endless bottom tier games in tier 8 premiums that you get arty focused even when there are top tier tanks sat in the open.

Are the arty changes making the lower tiers and soft targets the new arty targets. I've had arty try and kill me on the other side of the map while a heavy is attacking them.

Is it just me or is this the new way to play ?

Most likely they are poor and unable to buy them themselves...so they are just venting their frustration.

 

Or you are a better player xvm wise and again the same, just venting..

 

Take it as a compliment, blacklist, and then you'll recognise them should you meet them again :)

on lower tiers you do more damage, so if they are up for that, they will focus you probably or when you're on low hp. if you play for the win, you pick targets differently I guess.

 

I feel like I'm getting xvm focussed a lot, also in premiums as bottomtier, like you say.

Arty focus on low tier, and unarmoured tanks. Damages bring credits, and it was happened to me to fire with tier 8 french arty in super heavy tier 10 and bounce. The solution can be 2 types of arty guns: one for stun, like now, and one for damage, like before introducing the stun

I get arty focussed in my CDC in tier 10 games... Because arty supports the team and helps to win by targetting the most dangerous enemies first.:amazed:

WG needs to face it, arty is a stupid class and needs to be removed altogether.

As an arty player I focus on what I can hit. If there is a choice between a HT and a softer target, open topped or lightly armoured TD, then TD is my target got more chance of doing greater damage.

Simple choice really:)

The term "focus" completely lots its meaning by now. Today, everyone claims to get arty focussed, even if they only got hit once.

It's obviously a case of observation bias.

I get shot by all kinds of tanks :)

I mostly focus enemy players with my arty.

This is not strange. If I have the chance, I would do the same. My focus depends on the map. Td's are my priority, as I hate them and have a lot of influence on several maps. Besides that I focus on meds and lights, to take away the enemies mobility. This will make it easier for my team to take out the slower tanks, and not get flanked themselves.

I'm aware of that, hence the question.

My big heavy tanks used to get hammered with arty from the moment they were spotted till one of us was dead. Now not so much. 

Arty rarely chased my light tanks round the map, now they do.

Hardly played arty myself since the changes not sure what the new play style for arty is, so I asked.

Not talking about ME being focused just classes of tanks and the lower tiers in the 3 5 7 mix. If I change up to heavily armoured tanks I SEEM to get shot less

Don't mean just hit once, I mean multiple arty targeting a building I'm sat behind to splash me to death while there are bigger targets available.

Just asking whether the changes to MM and Arty are causing this and whether anyone else has noticed the same thing.

just had a game today played the IKV  next to me an is2  thought the panther  on the enemy team decided to ignore the is2  just to kill poor me 

 

face it meds are unfair and so is everyone shooting=focusing me so they need to be removed from the game ...

 

though for most wimps even being splashed once for zero damage  qualifies to complain about arty focus and making the statement "only shooting me all the game"  the extra large wimps may add some permastun rant too

As others have said, arty will go for whatever gives them the most damage... If I have a choice between a Hellcat or and an OP Japanese paper tank, I will shoot the Hellcat every time. No point shooting heavily armoured TD's and Heavies while there are lots of credits to be made shooting all the soft targets :)

I think it mostly has to do with the damage reduction to arty, 

"why shoot a Maus for 15 damage, when I can shoot the Tier 8 (insert unarmored tank name) for 500 or 600?"

also XVM focus, or simply, most arty players are just bad and can't understand the concept of prioritizing targets.

I also, seem to get shot by arty a lot, and I'm not even a good player :).

 

 

And a little sin of mine:

I always report arty that focuses me for UC :hiding:.

It's not "why shoot a Maus for 15 damage" but

when to shoot it.

Is it sitting safely behind a house, happily dinging shots

or is it advancing, then a detrack can make the difference of 2k hitpoints. :)
