A quick note to mention first is that I am a bog standard player, I am not someone that can hold the entire team on their shoulders but I still enjoy the game none the less.

 

Secondly, the ideas I have brought up aren't emergency necessities but I feel they should at least be brought into discussion to see if they have any validity in the game at all or are able to be combined with other ideas of similar nature. 

 

Lastly, this is quite a lengthy file but I hope it opens up more freedom for discussion which I implore you to do. You are Free to Compliment or Criticize the ideas any way you see fit.

 

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for your contribution, but please note there's already a stickied Artillery discussion thread, so making another is redundant. Have a good one!

Sorry about this, sudden rush to the brain making me go all auto mode. I'll reply to the discussion thread once this topic has been deleted and closed.

What kept you from actually posting the content of the file directly into that post?

It's three and a half pages. It would force everyone to scroll up and down if they wanted to reply to a certain point made in the document.

Well, I feel really stupid now. Thanks for the help. Hopefully I can cry myself to sleep trying to forget this ever happened.

Don't be silly, you tried to make a meaningful contribution, you just made a slight error in protocol. It's better than most people do :rolleyes:

My sugestions for artellery: 

 

- restrict the usage of arty to 1 per team

- increase the aiming time on arty so its purpose is mainly to hit targets that are camping or holding positions

- increase the damage on the arty like previously but reduce the stunt effect, and its radial of impact size. 

 

what makes currently arty anoying, is that most of arty players persuit the best players of the enemy team even if they are not playing as top tiers or even if they are not playing slower heavy tanks. the arty mechanics should be altered so it serves mainly the goal of destroying camping, or holding position tanks.

Sorry dude. This is just going to be closed so the boterators can hide it in the official thread. Which only three people read, two of whom are clinically insane.

Well there's a reason that thread was made, used to be that every day there was a new arty "discussion" thread. Didn't want to dash OP's hopes immediately but the artillery horse has been beaten to death so many times its carcass got flattened to a single layer of atoms.

Hello guys, 

I have to lock this thread. Remember that we have The Big SPG discussion, if you want to talk about artillery! 

Have a nice day! :)

No one reads that thread Nick. You might as well close that one too.
