Do we earn gold for every arty thread we open?

 

I thought the plan was to remove 'em.

 

@Ontopic: I see you play TDs yourself. Mostly that is. Well Arty favours static targets, which is pretty much it's RL duty.

 

The "arty prevents camping" is just a meme because arty lacks the power and autonomy to discourage people from camping. In fact, arty has the exact opposite effect: it punishes camping.

 

And camping is what TDs do the most. Hence you get artied. I think.

Jep, arty sucks monkeyb@lls. I really don't understand why they allow arty to ruin the game.

Also I don't understand why they don't try to make money of the matter... I would be happy to pay for an arty-free game (and have not spend anything last 1.5 years)

Every time I see a "new" arty thread a tune springs into my head, the theme tune from the Magic Roundabout...

Just like said roundabout these threads go around in circles also.

If you are spending 5 hours or so a day playing this game.  Then it is probably good the changes have made you cut down. I average 20 and could do to trim it down.

I don't understand why players play f.e. 100 games get killed or hit by arty in 5 of those and have to open a thread about it but not in the 55 games they get shot and / or killed by ( camping ) tanks..........

I doubbled up all the relevant tanks and ended up on a decent wn8 and 60% WR. Then i decided to take a break.

 

Coming back i wanted to get some xp on a couple tier VI tanks and had 11 loss in a row, because of the idiotic 3-5-7 matchmaker.:angry:

Not me me playing bad, but teams are just horrific when the 3-5-7 keeps putting clueless People in the top tiers. I mean some of the teams doesnt even leave base, or they decide to lemming one side and then stop and camp???

I almost carried a few of the games but it was futile. 

 

Then add 3 arty games, constant low tier MM, Premium ammo spam, Japanese heavies, and you can end up experiencing what i did yesterday. I UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE QUIT.

 

Sorry, wasnt meaning to steal your rant. Just needed to say my piece and i didnt want to make a New thread.:izmena:

I get focused quite a bit in my games but i never open a whine thread about it....what does that make me again? I hate redline camping TDs more than arty because you can't avoid going through some open areas....arty can't counter you like that since they rely on spots, don't have the accuracy, rof or camo to be as dangerous as a TD. I rarely see good play from either class. GET OVER IT.

From a 'risk versus reward' perspective it's not that far out to compare them. 

 

There's definitely no lack of features that aren't really compatible with the self-proclaimed status of tactical shooter.

I do hope youre joking. Arty dont prevent camp, nor does it punish camp.

 

What it does, is prevent agressive playstyle. It helps encourage the very thing it is supposed to prevent. Sadly.

I play aggressive. I don't let arty slow me down in every game i play because i shat my pants. I try to adapt like i do with bot teams. 

Sometimes i get killed by arty but more often by tanks.....why? Because i totally misjudged the situation and got myself in a bad spot. And if i do get hit by arty once or twice i don't pop out of cover at the exact same spot. That's the most often made mistake players do even if they are in the back and also those tanks at a corner who could easily move back under full cover to relocate. Players are too lazy to relocate and yes you can relocate in slow tanks too with exception of the really slow tanks like the T28 or T95 who have to commit once they move but instead complain about getting focused by arty.

Pro tip for destroying earworms - just start doing times tables in your head - a minute or two of that and the earworm is vanquished:)
