A while back i quit the game because i was just getting fed up with the constant 1k slam dunks from arty, And with the rework i decided to give it another try, But, honestly, I'm finding it even more annoying now with the added stun than i was before. Atleast before hand it was like. A roll of the dice if you die or they miss, Now its like, Every single shot hits, does 500+ damage and stuns you for a year which leaves you useless in combat.

 

Its literally every game im taking 4-5 arty hits, And probably atleast half my matches its artillery that kill me. For the first time in my entire WOT career i deserted a battle yesterday having recieved 2000+ damage purely from artillery on a run of being killed 8 battles in a row by the wretched things.

 

What does everyone else do to counter this? I literally feel like im being targeted solely and entirely game after game.

First of all stop exaggerating. Then take the time to start reflecting your own gameplay.

Idk, i dont go on heavy  flank when is 3 arty in game...no point to go on open field and die by clickers, and if you are slow, no cover, and if your team dosnt push  flank you will die by clickers for sure...

There are 15 players on your team... why is the Arty picking on you rather than the others ?

This is one of the core problems with arta - if there are 3 there is nowhere you can hide :)

I'm quite an aggressive player and always near the front line or trying to flank. So i thought that may have been the issue, But then i started playing TD's and stuff and sitting behind the fight a bit and nah, Still constant.

I'm really not exaggerating, Is there anywhere which records stats on this type of stuff, If there is i'll be more than happy to take screenshots.

You're taking all that arty for the team, while your team mates win the game, you're a hero

 

works for me

 

On a more sage note there are mods which tell them who has the best stats and the Arty target these players first

These mods may or may not be allowed anymore

Plus if you have a dangerous tank then you get special treatment

 

edit: and if you're driving a type 59 gold your own arty probably shoots you too

The only counterplay against clickers is not to press the big red button.

As a regular arty player, I usually switch to easier targets if my prefered target is moving too unpredictably. Keep in mind that artillery shots often take several seconds to arrive, so once you have been spotted you have to make sure to keep zig-zagging/drive back and forth etc.

If your tank does not have the speed to evade arty, it must either stay unspotted or behind cover in a 3 arty game.

A 0.94 spotting rate is not bad but not impressively aggressive ...

1...find more or less arty safe spots or always be on the move

 

2...if you play as aggressive as you say, and are always the first to find the reds ... meh .. you have to expect it

 

3... playing arty reduces your chances of being hit by arty  :P

Move.

If you are getting hit 4-5 times/battle and killed in half of your sessions, maybe something is wrong with your playstyle or game mechanics understanding.

I call this complete BS. I play T92 HMC from time to time, arty with biggest gun and biggest alpha among SPGs, and I never have constant 500+ rolls no way. Maybe like 200-400 to meds, 100-200 to superheavies and armored TDs (often direct hits!), and rarely in 1 out of 50 battles I am lucky to pen Borsig or FV4005 for 1000hp.

Really?

 

What tank are you driving that takes 500 damage from an arty shot and has 2500+ hitpoints because I would like to start targetting them when I'm playing arty.

Hah, great film.

 

To the OP, move about, shuffle back & forward if you know you might be a target - don't stand still.

 

Get behind cover, stay tight to cliffs/walls/buildings.

 

Also, if you can, don't bunch up with other players - arty players like it when they can hit concentrations of tanks with one shot.  They'll target any two tanks too close to each other, in preference to most else.

Here is a tip from an arty player. The first time you get hit and pulled back to cover.

Use the chat and tell your team from what sector the arty shells came from.

 

Counter fire pls. Arty just hit me from J9.

 

And your friendly arty will have a better incentive to find and fire on the enemy arty.

All due to your help.

 

(of course this only works if the enemy arty got one shot otherwise he will keep moving after the first shot)

If you're really getting hit that much by arty the problem is whatever you're doing, not the arty. Arty shoot easy targets. Stop making yourself the easiest target.
