We can choose random battles, we can choose stronghold, we can choose Grand Battles,actually we can choose a lot of things in WOT, how about we get to choose a game mode with no arty. The game doesn't loose arty, just we just get to choose whether we play in a battle including it. Simpals, everyone is happy. *edited*

Ah yes, because the ability to choose is the most important thing. Hence I now wish to choose whether I take damage, choose if I can see everyone on the map, and choose whether I win or not. Simpals, everyone is happy. You'd have to be a Candidate for <fill in subjective target of disapproval here> not to see it.

No. Arty is needed, though there should be a limit of 1, maximum of 2. But 3 is too many.

Arty clearly isn't needed. If it was, we wouldn't be able to play any games without it.

What a novel idea. I'm sure WG will take this unique approach to the arty problem into careful consideration.

With your win rate you're clearly not needed either.

If in doubt, patronise, If really in doubt, stagnate

Sure thing. If I can get a game mode with no super heavies or TD's in my meds too while we are at it?

you can choose grand battles, or exclude. Where does choice start or stop

Then you would be ok with people choosing, or not selecting, any other class of tank.

Why do you think it would be a good idea to exclude one of the five classes out of the game?

With the same logic I can ask for an option not to play against LT or TD.

As Arty is not a tank, its mobile artillery wheres the comparison?

I obviously make choices. I choose whether or not to play this game, knowing there's artillery in it. Try doing the same and stop pretending you got a novel idea that somehow warranted special treatment rather than the derision every artywhine deserves.

Yes, but like arty free games that do appear now and then. GB is still hidden in randoms, and who knows when it will appear. You don't get to chose when to play GB. Just like you don't get to chose when you get an arty free game. 

 

WG have said time and time again they won't alienate any class by forcing it out. If they bend over to an arty free mode. Then it won't be long before arty players what a wheeled free mode. Or heavy tanks wanting a TD free mode etc.

You could argue, with some justification, that in-game wheeled-vehicles, are not tanks, but I don't hear you complain about those.

You could argue, with some justification, that TD's, are not tanks, but I don't...   ...you know. ;)

 

I like playing arty, I can, also, play against arty. Same as any other class of tank. 

What I will give you, is that, sometimes, too many artillery pieces in a battle can be troublesome. I'm talking 3 arty pieces in a team of 15, is never good.

Neither for the artillery player, nor for the one trying to avoid air-borne bombs.

while we won't agree on some arty discussion topics,

I like this reply.

 

As someone else stated in a different thread some time ago, ´

WoT should actually be named "World of Armored Fighting Vehicles" (WoAFV)

but that is too long to spell.

 

PS: I can really, really recommend to read the "AFV weapons profile" series of Books.

Spoiler
