I read a post by someone on another thread ranting about arty - yes, it's true! Someone unhappy about arty! So I thought I'd have a look at his player record to see how much arty he'd actually played.

 

What a strange player record.

 

The lowest arty he played is tier 5. How is it possible to do that without playing the previous tiers? The record looks complete as it has the starter tier 1's for the various nations.

 

Can anyone explain? User is TungstenHitman.

AMX 13 F3 and M41 can be researched from the light tanks of their respective tech trees, them being the AMX 12t and M24 Chaffee respectfully.

Oh ok fair enough. Does raise questions about why you're playing the game if you're just going to skip through it, but it takes all sorts.

TungstenHItman is a forumite, too. So in time I think he can come over and give his one and only truth.

Skipping to tier5-6 arty is nothing but convenient. You can't currently do arty missions below tier5 pretty much at all.

TH apparently went to the American M41 HMC through the Chaffee light tank.

Going through the Russian heavies via the KV-2, you can enter the Russian farties as late as tier 7 with the S-51.

Well he's earned free XP elsewhere so I don't see a problem using it to avoid the baby tanks, particularly as they are useless if you want to do many of the missions. But I suspect you know that anyway and just want to create some mischief with your post.

More than likely they were grinded from the M24 Chaffee and AMX 12t.

You more or less just showed what half of us here do. Most here did not even play the low tier Italians. I skipped right to tier 6. Others have zero interest in tier 4 and lower, and skip past most of low tiers stuff regardless. As not everyone enjoys all tiers. Just like some don't like tier X and never buy those. As that's what most save up free XP for. That and most low tier SPG's can't do missions. So most skip to those that can. 

 

And as pointed out, some SPG lines can be grinded without unlocking anything below it via shortcuts. Like the French and US from the lights starting at tier 6 and 5 SPG's. Or Russian from the HT line so you can start with a tier 7 SPG from the KV-2. I have all the tier 8 SPG's unlocked. But still never played most of the SPG's on tier 5 and down.

And low tier arties are really just grenade launchers with absolutely no splash.

You should report him for hax. Also this Tungsten player has bot like stats, I'd say he might be one of WG's bot programs to fill the blanks when MM is short on players. I've seen him in battle before and you can tell by the way he drools around the map clueless and clonking into walls and other players. No way that's a real person, people just aren't that dumb.

Playing arties at lower tiers are a complete waste of time. So yeah, I'm also one of those "sorts".

 

Lower tier arties are:

- too inaccurate to do more than pray to hit

- players that are all over the place

- no personal missions

 

In short, I see no reason to play arties below tier 5.

I generally don't see a reason to play anything under tier 5.

 

.. except maybe my Pz1C and Luchs :hiding:

Given that you yourself used FreeXP to essentially skip the GPz.Mk.IV it is more strange why you even ask that question in the first place.

Low tiers is a crappy mess. 

 

I pretty much skip to tier 6 on every new line these days.

While your at it, isn't he Swedish? Can he eat meatballs? Does he work for Ikea? What about Surstromming, should we blame that one him as well?
