If you were lighting them up, being a direct threat AND in a slow heavy, they'd have to be pretty poor arty players not to focus you, wouldn't they? You'd expect it from any other "hiding" class like TDs or paper mediums, why does arty have to be treated differently?

And what did you expect on this map? Arty have a hard time hitting anything inside the city and then you come along out in the open.

no, its a open map and I use optics, almost 445 VR, I only get 1 shot after I was spotted by others, most of the shots (7 shots) I got are when I behind the hills.

But you were spotted and got a shot off, meaning that if they'd ignored you, you're likely come back to hit them again. My question stands - you'd expect it from other classes, why are you so upset that it was arty? You took your heavy tank into the open, you can't expect anyone to turn away from an easy target that's threatening them regardless of the class they're playing.

In my honest opinion i think this game deserves arty.
When you try and play your tier 8 premium to grind some credits, normally it takes 4-5 battles and 4-5 battles as bottom tier to understand

this aint edited worth it. 357 mm have just made you waste an hour feeling useless.

 

Of course then you go get another beer, pull out your M53/M55 and ofcourse this time your mostly top tier as 1 of 3 tier 9s, go figure out why? 

The big difference this time is that you dont care if you win or lose, THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS TO MAKE PEOPLE CRY.

 

And it works, and you have your smile back :P

I did not mean arty does not deserved in this game, I also play arty, mainly for my Obj 260 (I am currently 14/15 SPG, 14/15 MT, 14/15 TD on Obj260, and with 11 tickets left to use...). I did not focus on purple player on purpose when I playing arty, I only care about whether I can get my mission done.

 

But check that guy`s stats, did you see? a person, dedicated to arty played 4.7k alone in his tier 7 German arty...I just dont think he is a normal player like me.

I don't understand how someone could play over 2,000 battles in the ISU-152, that's clearly not normal because it's a boring casemate TD with the only redeeming feature of a big boomstick. Clearly anyone who could do that isn't normal like me. :rolleyes:

 

That's one of the great things about this game - it's got sufficient depth for different players to enjoy it in their own way. I don't find someone being an arty main anywhere near as galling as the chap who was ordering the team about in a tier 10 battle, throwing out his win rate as evidence that he was the best player on the team but turned out to have played over 10,000 battles in the tier 1 German tank to pad his stats.

What truth? You knew there was multiple arty in play yet you drove into the field and fired to get yourself spotted and now you're butthurt that the arty dealt with you as a threat. Then you're attempting to shame one of the arty players for the simple fact that he's found something he enjoys.

 

Seriously, get over it and move on. He didn't set out to ruin your battle. Did you ever contact anyone that you one-shot in your ISU to apologise for ruining their game?

hehe, even I played more than 2k games in my ISU 152, but I never focus on specific player on purpose.

Well,  on other hand, your dear arty friend, seems like focus on some players based on XVM...

What evidence do you have that he focused on you because of XVM?

Xvm focus must be a myth, unless suddenly I’ve become a unicum over night!!!!! Everywhere I went today I was focussed by arty. That’s the big problem playing lights and mediums now that the arty pen has been nerfed. Arty want to do the most damage so focus the squishy targets rather than the heavies which are more use focussing and easier to hit.

What evidence do you have for that? By your own account you were in a slow tank, in the open, spotting the arty and fired to get yourself spotted - how does any of that mean the arty was focusing you because of XVM? You were a direct threat, arty dealt with it.

You know what's sad? People using mods for the damage/hit log when the vanilla game has one that works exactly the same. :facepalm:

No. I think what is sadder is creating a thread here to whine about arty focus, but:

- ignoring the fact there is already a dedicated arty thread, and multiple threads discussing arty or XVM focus.

- not including sufficient information to back up the claim, only a damage log showing he was edited enough to get hit by the arties multiple times

- not understanding that a Caernarvon AX is actually a better target for a GW Panther than an Object 705, as it is more susceptible to damage, module damage and stun
