Been awhile since I was here.

Arty remains in the game so just live with it.

 

No this post is about the TRAGIC fench arty after the nerf. They have so low caliber they don't have much splash.

 

Earlier I said M55 was the sweetspot you had splash you had alpha damage AND you had mobility like french arty. And so it pleases me to see a LOT of M55 playing. You guys made the right choice. And it is also only tier 9 arty that often have higher score then tier 10 arties.

It gone so far that I think WG KNOWS how imbalanced the arties are among each other. So if you play

M55 you meet M55 212A GW TigerP ( not GWTiger) or any arty that match M55 you dont see many fench arty

BC 155 58 then suddenly the serfver is full of french arty players? looks that way.

 

And since M55 is tier 9 arty the waiting time for a game is like 20 seconds max. And BC 155 58 has a waiting time of 4 - 5 minutes just to load into a game and have zero impact and loose.

 

I stopped playing BC 155 58 immediately after the last major nerf.

This month I started playing again to check it out again just to find what I allready knew from day one after the last nerf.

IT SUCKS.

It is too low caliber to hurt enemy tier 10 heavies unless you get a side shot. So to get any XP you are relegated to stunning enemy vehicles and hope friendlies do some famage so you can get any assist. But if enemy heavies come marhing in formation you dont have a chance in french arty. In American M55 you could hit one tank ans splash 2 with the samne shot.

 

So, not only is the caliber too low on tier 8 9 10 french arty but on the tier 10 french aut0 loader then went from 4 shells in mag to 3. Not only that, the changed the fire rate from boom - boom - boom . boom to boom .---------- boom --------------boom .....

The fire rate is so low that you dont think you are playing an autoloader.

 

So I suggest

For the mechanics of the game to be consistent and all and considering french arty is low caliber then to rebalance Bat 155 59 give it a 4th shot again and also let it go boom -- boom .. boom . boom quickly.

 

That is all I have to say.

Currently the BC 155 58 suck so bad it is not worthy of being a tier 10 arty.

WG fix this.

I go back to playing the M55. Where you can have an impact on the game outcome.

Or completely remove the annoying autoloader and give it bit more accuracy, DPM and aim time compared to the tier 9.

I rather like arty so tried French T10 on CT....

Compared to USA, British or German it's rather underwhelming so won't be grinding the French line.

yes french arty have always been wildly inaccurate beyond 700 800 meters.

They were like that from day one.

All the 4 or 5 major arty nerfs never changed that.

 

You point out that maybe give it better accuracy. All I say is that is one way to go. After all on these maps we are firing under 1000m. I was going to say IRL arty fires longer range. But in 2019 it is impossible to talk about IRL at the same time you are talking WoT. It is also silly when WG talks about historical accuracy.

 

In WOT these days we should only talk about gameplay and any unfairness and how ti get better gameplay-

 

Folks are to early and eager to point at OP tanks and WG ( cause it was planned ) do nothing for a year.

 

But what I seldome see is people fighting for hoipeless tanks and ask WG to buff them a little.

Poor tanks that are yesterdays news.

IMHO, i think arty shouldn't be in game, because it just sit in a corner and click, without any skills if you understand what i mean.

Anyway, it's a part of WoT now, so, if you want them to fix b c arty, stand in the line, many other tanks need fixing. :)

It was a buff, all of the arties were massively buffet. All they lost was a bit alpha to gain in every possible way and also gain stun. MASSIVE buff.

Don´t play it then? Problem solved and you made the game a tiny bit better in the process.

You have 3 shells and a reload of 10 secs, you can literally keep someone permastunned for well over a minute.
