Used to enjoy firing AP then have people tell me they did dirty things with my mum, or wished I had cancer

I fire just regular HE in my LEFH, none of this fancy cHEAT stuff, and it seems to piss people off just fine. :trollface:

His highest tier of arta is tier 4, only 3% of his games are in Arta. This is literally just bait in an attempt to annoy people. Ignore and move on.

I am thinking of playing arta more now because I am ****** off trying to fight the see all, know where everyone is, never surprised, never miss with no aim time, ammo rack every hit, unkillable, impenetrable ***** robot death machines that ruin every game in any other kind of tank, and if I can ****** off as many of them any way I can then that is a bonus.

But you can on some arty, bigger stun radius. AP was to hit and miss, forgive the pun, at least HE will cause damage, either splash or direct hit.

Now go away and do your homework on different shell types.

Clearly, this game conspires against you

I can give you a few tips if you're struggling with that. There's really no need to play arty out of frustration.

It seems absurd until you play game after game where the enemy is never looking the other way, never needs any time for their aim circle to shrink, hits you from angles where they would need to be in a hot air balloon, penetrates any plate of your tank at any angle etc.  

 

People complain this game is full of bad players, but I disagree; nobody I fight is ever in the wrong place or shoots and misses or shows any sign of human weakness whatsoever.

Arty should have proper AP shells.

Or better still, APCR.

I thought arty gold was removed???

 

I do remember it being on one of the German artys, but I've never used it personally.

 

I didn't actually use gold in anything for a long time because I thought it would be expensive, then I realised I could spam it regardless and my credit level remained the same.

AP/HEAT for gold or credits was removed.

 

On noob tiers there is nothing except basic HE for credits.

 

The T5 LefH still has HE/HEAT/AP and massive dpm because its a premium arty and didn't get nerfed. The T3 Sexton also kept its AP shells but it was never good in the first place and even without being nerfed its still irrelevant.

 

On mid and higher tiers artillery can fire gold HE shells for extra splash range for more damage and larger stun splat. This is how a CGC or T92 can damage/stun half a team per shell with their gigantic splash radius.
