I'm not really one of the best arty player, but I need something for completing the last SPG campaing mission...

I've read a lot of posts saying that the M44 was very good for the challenge and also a very good spg, but this thing seems it doesn't want to work properly: whenever I aim at something this thing ALWAYS miss, giving me an audio spam of "THAT WAS CLOSE!" which is very irritating... I've spent the last 3 days trying to figure out if the way I was aiming was good or bad, but I do the exact same things and aim in the same way, but still every 6 shots it misses 4-5 of them (I have a 90% experienced crew btw).

What is wrong?!

1) With SPG only fire when you're fully aimed.

2) There is a diference between 90% base exp and 100% base experience.

I'm aware of that, but still miss.

That maybe could be the problem, but I also saw many people dealing with it even with 60% (?)

I did some tests: I played the same way with the Hummel and actually got really good results if only my teammates knew how to fire stunned enemies but anyway, and my conclusion is that the M44 is not the same it was used to play years ago, now it won't seriously hit anything.

I try to fire a lot with the M44, and will take part aimed shots threat often just splash, in order to keep them under fire rather than wait for a full aim and lose the target.   Perhaps I should play for more certain hits and might do more damage, but I get a bit of splash and it does seem to help keep the winrate in the right place.

 

Anyway have a couple of recent replays and see if this makes any sense.

As stated above, a 90% crew is part of the problem. 

Which gun are you using?  The top gun is more accurate than the stock gun.

Give us a link to a replay of a typical battle for you.  Maybe we can give you some tips or advice.

 

I had a look at your stats on the M44 and your hit rate is 31.82%, which is low compared to mine (38.09%) but I wouldn't say that it is terrible.  I have always considered 33% hit rate to be about average for arty.  But that is based on pre-stun days experience.  Arty (except for the premium ones) was made a bit more accurate with the introduction of stun so maybe the average needs to be a bit higher.  So, I don't think yours are awful or anything.

 

Here is a recent Ace Tanker battle of mine in the M44 where I hit 47.8% of my shots.....but with ZERO pens...lol.   Keep in mind that this battle was with Cola, Gun rammer, and Gun Laying Drive...all standard and not improved.  Because I have BIA on all crew members, my gunner has a 127% skill level.  Maybe you can see something that I do that will help you.  If not, give us a few replay links and maybe we can help you.
