Dunno when this started, but recently especially for high level arty T9 and T10 i find myself too near to the enemy at the start, and get destroyed after spotted by scouts without any chance to get further away?

Is this the new WG tactics intended to discourage the arty players? WTF?

nope its fine.   Ensk is sometimes the problem.    it happens.  Most of the time most players are saying damn, where can I hide from arty.   A little return in their favour isn't a big deal.

this might the only reason for me to buy one or grind them. To ruin as much arties battles as possible.

From what I've seen, quite good at it, and if the other team aren't too great you might even escape without dying. Then again there will be a learning curve to counter them and eventually chances will become worse.

It will be very much possible. Everyone should even let the enemy wheeled pass to kill all arty. It would teach the clickers a lesson ;)

I wasn't sure i wanted to play wheeled tanks, you just made the decision for me.

 

I'll grind them to tier X only by yoloing arties. No more bans for innapropriate behavior \o/

As TankkiPoju already mentioned yolowagons have awesome HE shells, plus your clickers will be eager to help you.

I bounced a couple of hits from behind in my Lorr 155 51 over the weekend while playing Frontline. Our friendly team killer gave up on me and took his Lynx 6x6 to try and shoot a real tank in the back, before deciding that he might actually have more luck if he shot at the other team. A useful experience though, I'll be very wary of loading standard AP when I get mine next month.

It is not so strange that he bounced you, considering teamdamage is turned off in frontline ^^

 

Meaning even a Strv S1 shooting gold would bounce your back.

Last year friendly fire wasnt even possible in frontline, so I would presume that stayed that way.

Boop of nope for people to please post this sort of discussion on artillery thread. There's been nothing new added here either. 

 

Please check other threads before creating threads like these.
