So i just got the E3 and every battle with arty i get focussed hard stun here stun there that prevents me from enjoying the tank, every battle with arty is like oh no here we go again. As i know there is no fix for this just badluck but this/broken tanks is why is quit the game for over a year and here we go again. :(

Try getting 2k+ wn8 rating. You'll get focused regardless of the tank.

I can only say arty is broken. It's sometimes too op, sometimes they miss too many (not many enough if u ask me). You can't do anything other than camping (which arty ofc prevents). Or just drive to the open and get permastunned and -tracked. And don't forget to have fun.

 Big gun. Armor that's practically impenetrable frontally. Can't imagine why the enemy team might want their arty to be shooting at you..

If you're driving an E3, this sounds like a case of "arty working as intended".

Replay?

Its not always xvm focus. Good players almost always play on 1st line. This also mean they are spotted most of the time... and this mean arty will shoot them. Agressive gameplay = arty focus in 80-90% of cases. 10-20% is xvm focus. 

 

Its rather sad that active gameplay is punished (arty sh1111t on you) while long range camping is ok. But i guess that is why we have arty in game. Game is designed for all players, those really bad and those who are pro. In artillery even worst player on earth have chance to "spread his smelly love" on unicums face.

Yes, I can really see how you've been struggling with that E3 in those first 30 battles..........

 

PS, most tanks really struggle to deal with an E3 (especially frontally at range), so it makes TOTAL sense for enemy SPG's to focus on getting you out of the game, unless you think the enemy team are happy to keep taking 750+ damage shots whilst you sit there virtually impervious to their normal tank rounds...?

I play arty, there said it.

I don't use XVM so don't know who's good, bad or indifferent.

So who do I focus? Well all depends on what arty I take out. If it's slow aiming/reload will usually pre aim at one of the choke points and wait for the first victim, sorry tank, to amble into my aiming circle.

If it a fast aiming arty then can and will range over a wider area even blind firing. 

And if it's Bert then will permatrack first tank I come across.

But if there are several tanks close knit then these are the ones I will focus all that stun...

Well that's how I play arty.
