You know that feeling you get when you start a game, and you see 3 arty per team? You just know its going to be such a fun game.

 

So please WG, please add more arty to the game. Like just go nuts, make it 14 arty per team with like 1 tank per team.

 

Oh it could even be a special event mode. Where that 1 tank is something like a T95. I mean we all know how much fun really really really slow tanks are without arty. So just imagine the fun you could have in a really really really slow tank when there are 14 arty shooting at you.

Just imagine the number of people that will sign up to WOT just to experince that.

You could even do like a mission marathon when if you play for on average 1000 hours over 1 week you could earn yourself an object 2789836372843e - a 1950s blueprint tank with 100000000m of sloped and spaced armour but can go at speeds of upto 300000km/s.

 

But please WG, dont limit arty to 3 per game. Its just boring. If 10 seconds that go by without seeing that little red counter tick down just makes me feel sad, as if i am not important enough for arty to shoot at, or not camping hard enough.

 

And for the minority of people that actually think some sort of skill in a game is necessary, and that you should have to stop for more than 0.0000001 seconds to aim, etc and bully arty, I think you WOT have done a great job protecting the poor arty players. Removing cross chat so they couldnt insult the arty players was a great idea. And removing team damage so they couldnt be TK'd - but leaving in that you could stun your ally because who doesnt like seeing the red timer count down was brilliant. And both of these have had 0 negative effects on the game. However I have noticed that some people, again these are usually the ones who seem to think aiming etc is important, are now harrasing the poor arty players in their own team. So maybe this is something you could look into and fix.

 

And i think everyone in WOT would agree with these changes.

 

BRING BACK THE ARTY

I had a poor FV4005 driver crying because I dropped a couple of CGC bombs on him from A0 earlier.  It's the little things which make you feel appreciated. :)

I agree with you, but they should also buff arty, not too much, just a slight buff to improve quality of life for arty players. Like aimtime should be halved, hidden gun stats should be improved and accuracy for all arties should be about .32, except the German ones, they can have .31 but beyond terrible hidden stats to compensate for the huge advantage in accuracy.

I also propose a slight tweak in damage, have you ever been in a tier 10 spg and hit a superheavy tank directly for just 300 damage? Or missed a moving medium by no more than 10 meters for 400 damage? Tier 6 arty should have about 1600 HE damage and the tier 10's about 3500, and of course their HE shells should also have the overmatch mechanic and skip the first two layers of any spaced armour, ever hit a light tank and only dealt 600 damage? That should be no more. I'm not talking anything to drastical here but mobility, HP, view range, rof and armour should also be buffed a tiny tad, say 70%. Add a minor adjustment to gun depression to average of -8 for all tiers. But of course arty players can't have everything so to compensate this buff for balance reasons radio range should be nerfed by 5m.

This tweak would put arty damage output on par with the huge amount on skill needed to play the class.

Also, the stun effect should be at least a minute.

WG are working in changing the MM to decrease 3 arty per game to 2.

 

EDIT: From WGFest 2019 Q&A

At the moment, one of the priorities is the overwhelming number of battles with 3 SPG in one team, especially at Tier X.  Wargaming wants to reduce this number by changing the matchmaker. These changes have already been introduced to the live servers, where the matchmaker will learn how to distribute battles with SPG, between 2-1-0 SPG. The number of battles with 3 SPG should now start going down, but on the other hand, battles with 2-1-0 SPG should increase

Can't really say I clearly recall some of the matches back in the days, but getting into those with 10 to 13 arties each side did happen. 

 

Think I usually died pretty fast, and the team with most Hummel in it won when the arties went TD mode against each other :izmena:

 

These days I'm doing clicker-missions and on last with honours for t55a...not to bad  since I can drink and eat ...but otherwise an experience that is mindnumbingly boring.

 

At least I get confirmation as to why #walletclosed a while back was the right thing to do. Limit this pos class to just one each side, and while at that very difficult but of coding...perhaps also look into other "balanced" vehicles, MM, maps and some of the old tanks..

 

But this being WG, we all know they'll ignore it as they are too busy pushing out sales stuff ...over priced sales stuff :/

Use Russian tanks if arty is getting you down, there seems to be far more dispersion

 

Arty knows this and tends to focus on non russian victims if it can

Now that could be interesting. Or make it a Wheelie + 14 arty, on Provka, where the wheelies have to surf the middle ridge while the arties try to hit them. 

At least the tank driver would have a genuine claim that he was focused by arty.

Perhaps it is time for a tier 8 premium arty.
