Players are faced with an ultimatum: Never be matched up with artillery again, with the condition that you yourself cannot ever play artillery again. Or. Be able to play artillery, with the condition that you will get matched up with artillery. 

 

New players are automatically able to play artillery and get matched up with it untill 1k battles when they have to make a choice. After making their choice they have 1 more opportunity to change their decision, but if they use that opportunity they can never again change their mind. 

 

What you guys think?

If excluding arty would be an option - why to stop there? I mean, I hate French & Chinese tanks, all of them and equally... I want then an option to opt out from meeting those or at least some lines within their national tech trees. ;)

Maybe because you are (almost) alone in that, while a huuuuuuge part, majority, would prefer the option to be able to disable arty in battles.

 

When you gather enough followers that dislike/hate French and Chinese tanks, I would happily support your idea to be able to disable those aswell.

 

Until then, your argument is meaningless.

I've proposed a fix for arty as follows. 

 

Assuming arty cant be removed then rework as follows.

 

Give them a render range. Spotted tanks appear as blobs on the map or in top down view. The further away the tank is then the larger the blob gets. The tank can be anywhere within the blob because WG likes RNG. At 445m and below the tank is defined perfectly. 

 

Reduce their accuracy as the distance to the target increases. This is just simple logic that is applies to every other vehicle in the game. Arty should be no different. Arty is as accurate as it is now at say 400-450m beyond that it decreases and continues to decrease while the distance increases. 


The changes are designed to get arty to join in the battle and engage targets at a closer range, so that they become exposed to the risk of being spotted. To allow this give art some HP and of necessary mobility so that it can relocate and / or run as necessary.

WG should sell lootboxes in which you can win a "blessed charm". If you apply this charm to a battle you won't see any arty.

 

A lootbox costs 5.99€ and gives 1:100 chance to get a charm.

Best thing they can do for arty is ban everyone who makes a new thread about arty.

Already been said you will never be able to opt out of arty battles.

if you don't like arty go play blitz.

Why'd they do they that? This is after all the gameplay forum, and artillery is a vital part of that. 

And this isn't another artillery bashing thread, I came with a pretty original idea of how you could handle it.

Wise words comrade.

Problem is, most of the haters don't own a pair of big boy trousers, therefore they are unable to put them on and move on to the next game.

First there is a sticky thread that you are supposed to post in that's why all other arty threads get closed,

Second it's hardly a new idea it's just another way to opt out of arty battles and they have said they will never allow that.
