Why are you still in the game?

 

Jokes aside, you've got 10% of your battles in SPGs. I would not be surprised if the average SPG count was roughly equivalent to that (10% should mean ~1,5/battle on average; which I suspect is just about correct). In other words, you can literally ask yourself: Why are SPGs in the game still?

 

(This is how you are supposed to treat children that ask too many questions; help them to think their way to the answer instead of giving it. Also works on what appears to be stupid questions. I reckon it'll do on a forum too.)

So that is why arty always goes for the attacking guys at the front and not those camping behind cover ?

Eh, it's not as toxic as it used to be.

Only the ridiculous pens when playing a lower armored tank, or getting splashed while playing a light is still annoying.

Other than that, it's not as bad, and even a bit fun to play from time to time.

Could still use some improvement though.

I could say "the only good arty, is a dead arty."

 

But I won't. Because I'd rather not have it that they even lived in the first place.

 

The only good things about arty were special medals like Yishinon (3 kills, +2 tiers), Burda's (5 kills) ... but WG even had to devaluate that. Sad.

Cover? What cover? Arty will stun you even through hard cover, becouse stronk logik, blyat. And camping is camping, even at 60kph, da? :)

This^^^. Arty should have never been implemented in this game.

It's necessary to understand someone else's point of view, to be able to make a balanced decision.  Walk a mile in someone else's shoes, for example.  I've played nearly 5k battles in arty.  Not recently tho & I also think it has no place in the game.

 

People may also play arty for missions or before they realised how broken/boring it is, or because it's all they're any good in, or because they actually enjoy it.

 

As to why it's still in the game?  I think WG have just dug too deep a hole & can't get back out now.  Arty seem to make up roughly 10% of the tanks in the queue for games & I think it was Viktor who claimed roughly 80% of players owned arty.  No company is going to want to risk alienating somewhere between 10 & 80% of their customers.  Despite that, they do seem to feel it necessary to make concessions to those that dislike arty from time to time, with what feels like almost constant changes to the class.  If they're still trying to find it's place in the game after 7 years, maybe it's time to accept it doesnt have one :P

Its 2018 why do we still have posts about why artillery is still in the game.

 

More to the point why do we still get new threads about artillery when there is one official thread you should post to.

No, definitely not in the Bishop and generally not in tier 6 also. 

 

But in the following tiers it's as true as it gets. Don't worry, maybe you'll see for yourself one day, someday...

It's not "as true as it gets". You are wrong.
