It'll be interesting to see what happens after the last arty change. It's harder now to actually stun for long periods of time, especially if you've two other SPGs stunning the same targets, and WG said they'd assess and rebalance the missions within 2 updates if necessary.

 

nowadays I just hold my shot until the stun from other artillery player is about to wear off,

and when it's about 1 second left I shoot to apply fresh stun

While that does make perfect sense in normal battles, I doubt you can afford to waste that time if you're chasing the missions for 180s or 200s of stun.

Did the spg-15 for 260 after the stun nerf. So I doubt they'll do much changes to arty missions (they could remove the top xp requirement from 15's though).

Maybe more grand battles for arties could ease the mission grind a bit, quite rare nowadays and normal randoms are rather fast paced for many requirements.

Well it doesn't make sense to stun an already stunned target since the stun nerf and selecting a new target will likely take longer.

Wouldn't put it past them - WoWs have a currencey"Steel" which is sort of like bonds - you get it from clan battles and ranked only - they said they would never sell it - but earlier this year they sold a campaign set which gave you some missions, the main reward of which was steel.... typically wot follows about 1year to 18 months after they do this stuff in WoWs (WoWs had reusable prem consumables first , and p2w prems first (Belfast - aka Payfast - I'm looking at you!!! - and after that most prems had to be better or have some gimick that was better than tech tree stuff... Defender and IS3-A got inspiration from this perhaps!! Talking of which - where's my KV2-A...now that I would love lol)

Well, obviously. But while you are waiting for the opportune time to shoot if no other target is presenting itself, you are loosing battle time, and therefore potential stuns. So, compared to the old mechanic, it's logical that total stun time will reduce, so on average, and therefore less people will be able to get 180s or 200s per battle. I think that's rather obvious too?

It probably wouldn't work if you have Encounter or Assault enabled though.

I'll give it a go this morning if you like. :arta:

 

But there's always some downtime playing arty.  I don't think there will be that much effect overall.

Ok, now I've seen you make that claim in numerous threads.
I have to ask:
What are you basing that assumption on? Do you have any factual evidence to support it, or is it something that you assume, believe or feel is right?

You are right. Nobody likes arty. Nobody plays it. Somehow there's arty in almost every battle, or even 3 of them. During 0.7 event there were 5 to 7 SPGs every battle. In Frontlines, there's always longest queues for SPGs.

Peeps voted Leafblower as most desired vehicle to be in premium shop last year.

Hell, despite SPGs can't platton and despite SPG per battle cap, people just play it and enjoy it.

There's even warning in the game client saying waiting for SPG battle may be longer due to cap and thus longer queues.

Are you new to this game, ignorant, or just blind?

What they could do with these new personal missions is make the stun requirement optional.

The great thing about the new set of PMs compared to the old is that they are not vehicle specific.

First set you have to play 15 Light Medium Heavy TD and SPG missions no option other than to miss one line out or complete with orders.

 

New PMs you can use any vehicle class even complete the primary with a heavy and the secondary with a TD they do not care.

So for all the missions that have a primary or secondary Stun requirement make it x minutes of stun or x damage x kills etc.

Then you can do them with any vehicle like all the others.

Unless of course you want to add stun to all the derp tanks then I will happily complete them with those vehicles.

 

Not sure a KV2 with stun would be popular with everyone though it would be funny.

Good thing then that WG hates arty and keeps nerfing them.

I play arty. Arty missions are the easiest and most entertaining and I finish them before all other missions. Then I use orders to finish HT missions which I tend to find the most demanding and unpleasant. I you don't seem to have enough orders to finish all the missions you struggle with, perhaps you are not yet a good enough player for the campaign?

What are you rambling about? When did I make those claims? Strawman arguments are so bloody tedioous and blatantly obvious.  Come on,  surely you must be able to come up with someting better than that..
