I just played my 50,000th battle in arty.

I thought for a while of what arty in which to play such a milestone batte.  I have several in my garage that came to mind.  Favorites like the GW Panther.  This was my first "big" high tier arty a long time ago.  It is my third most played arty and has brought a lot of enjoyment and most importantly has been the bringer of many liters and even gallons of delicious whine.  But, then I considered other favorites with a high battle count:  Bishop, Bert, Leffy, Grille...even a couple of my currently most played artys---M43 and Su-14-2.  M44 was also a consideration as it was my first arty to get 3 MOEs and it is most definitely a super star at tier VI. (Maybe the first was the Grille.....can't remember...getting old I guess)

 

But in the end, I decided that I needed to give the honor of being my partner in the 50,000th battle to my most played arty, the GW E100.  It is not the one with my best result either in WN8 or win rate, but it has always been a favorite as it was my first tier X.  

 

I would like to thank all of the slow moving heavy tanks and tds that contributed immensely to my enjoyment.  I also would like to give a tip of the hat to all of the zippy little light tanks and fast mediums that have been the cause of many of arty nightmares.  I enjoyed every time that one of you accidentally drove full speed into the precise spot on the map where I had aimed.  I promise you that I was trying to shoot that rock and not you.

To all of the whine producing noobs that have called me "cancer", "sky pig", and most importantly "Clicker" I would not have enjoyed the game enough nor had the inspiration and motivation to continue for 50,000 battles.  Actually, I would not have my nickname without the inspiration you gave me lubricated with your whine and tears.  Each time you thought you were insulting me in chat only to see my response of "Go hug your mommy and play again....please don't cry little tank" please know that I meant every word in the most loving and grateful manner possible.

Here is to the next 50,000...

Me too....a Bishop or a Bert platoon were the sources of good times.....and a platoon of 3 Leffys.......it almost brings a tear to my eye.

The 768 battles were battles that I wasted playing the easy classes of vehicles known as tank destroyers and tanks.  They didn't require the level of skill and mouse clicking proficiency needed in arty, so I moved on to bigger and better things...artillery.

Yeah... I'm impressed but also I find it weird how you can spend soo much time playing arty. There is no other explanation than that you must realy like it.

Makes me feel a bit bad that I would like to see arty removed. I was quite annoyed when the old AMX ELC was nerfed and other players commented this was stupid...

 

Good luck clicking ;)

 

 

And try to avoid me please.

Thanks for the kind words.  Yes, I like playing arty....I guess that goes without saying.  And yes, I will try to avoid shooting you...just please don't drive into the spot in which I am aiming.  :B

Shame it couldn't have been a win! I'm on my way to that T10 German arty, it'll be a while though.

Never seen you in game, but it would be an honour to have my Light tank replace that exploding rock  ;)

I noticed that arty is not your least played class either. Plus you already got a tierX SPG yourself.

 

Then, by conclusion, you are also infected.

Why, how #$&^%#$&, why would you even... ^%&^$%#@$# 50k battles in arty?!?! Aaahhhh.... nevermind. I just don't get it :)

 

PS: best of luck mate. At least you play something you really enjoy and have fun with, unlike some 2-spamming guys in tier 10s just raging on how bad everything is...
