I got nothing against arty players. Sure it's a noob class that takes no skill but it's part of the game. I hate WG for allowing 3 arties per team. Right now we get maybe 1 arty free battle every 10 or so games. It would be totally OK if it was limited to 1 but we had arty every single game. 3 arty is just not fun for anyone. Only good for LTs on open maps so they can rack up a ton of spotting damage.

Make a fair poll, missing option: Arty makes the game absolutely fantastic, Not that I would vote for it but to make the poll fair.

Yes WG, arty is nerfed. WZ 120 and took hit to front from GW Tiger P. Half hp (over 500) lost straight away. Sure, nerft to the ground. 

You cant see any difference in game after arty nerf.

I love these people that have, 'Killer', 'Destroyer', 'War-King', Tank-Murderer', in their names.

And then you see what they do in battle.  :teethhappy:

 

Although I believe OP made a typo, and it's Mick Miller, the comedian, typing.

 

*Edit.

I voted, more fun. Because it's more fun when I'm the artillery player.

 

They don't hold a candle to the 6,243,741 Erwin Rommels in the game though. :honoring:

The arty solution: WOT DEVS should make new game with AI tanks driving around and arty clickers then can click as much they like. Remove arty from this tank battle game.

1x arty is OK, and may even be a good thing. 2x arty is annoying, 3x arty is downright bad.

 

Otherwise, I give this thread 12 hours at most before it gets closed. Somehow, everybody seems to feel the need to start arty topics lately. Is it that time of the year again?

Or in other words, we don't really care about player opinion even if 65% of players agree.

I will never forget when me (m40/43) and a TD won against 4 heavy on Paris.

we killed 1-1 while they were approaching the other.
Then the last 2 decided to get me.
All it needed was the Benny Hill show theme song while they chased me around a building.

The poor type 4 got shot by me in the back from 20 meters after taking some corners, and the other guy was shot in the side by our TD.

Never had a game as fun as that.

The 2 red probably didn't enjoy it as much.

Which is how all polls work.

 

A valid objection would be who are in the sample and not the size of the sample.

So we shouldnt consider presidential elections as realistic statistics because only 60% of the population votes?

Your logic amazes me.

Let's agree to disagree. 

In fact, I'm just going to agree with myself in saying that your statement is completely incorrect.

How does that amaze you? This is one of the fundamental problems of a voting system, it favours those interested in the system. If people don't vote it might be their own fault for somebody not representing their views getting elected but it doesn't change the fact that the elected person is not representing their views. And that's about as political as I'll get on this topic.

Correct, however it's simultaneously true that both the size of the sample and who is in the sample is determined by the reasons people have for being here. Polls of sample population sizes are only considered representative when they reflect the population they're a part of. In most cases, people come here, at least initially, because they have a complaint. The masses out there just playing their game, including the aspects of whatever poll is made here, aren't being asked their opinion. So no matter which perspective you want to have about it, these polls are a vocal minority within a vocal minority.

This is the most ludicrous statement I have ever read.

 

You are saying that the elected candidate, who has been voted for by the majority (more than 50%) of the people that voted does not represent the majority...

if that is one of the fundamentals of the voting system then I guess all the Presidents across the globe are false.

Well if you count that around 50% of voters never show up to vote anyway, a percentage i.e. of 30% in the election really represents around 15% of all potential voters.

So he has a point.

Not really, people who are invested in voting usually are the ones to vote, lots of people can't be bothered so although I agree with the system myself most votes aren't the majority of people this is why Labour get in from time to time.

Since politics is off-topic on this forum I'm not going to discuss it, but simply recommend you do some research how high a percentage of the total population of a country has voted for their country's president, you might find it educational.

Ow look... Yet another "open door" bit research.

Why make yet another thread asking about something you already know the answer to
