WG is making all these prem tanks aka tds, meds & hvys. Why arnt they making a arty? I guess alot of folks will buy it. They could combo it as a td/arty. It would be a fun gimmic, just like on the frontline tanks 4 tracks, or like the new russian tank with 2-3 barrels!

why in general a company doesn't do something that'd make them a profit? Usually because they understand they'd lose more somewhere else.

 

probably a high portion of players they're losing is because of arty. They probably don't want to lose more?

 

for the record, I'm of the opinion arty is ok given the legendary ability of WG to "balance" tanks. But that doesn't make it less frustrating to face or less frustrating to play.

 

p.s. - also I have no clue why you'd need a prem arty.

 

a. you don't need to train a crew for arty. At most you need a 2 skills crew.

b. you don't need credits if you play arty; arty play doesn't lose credits.

The two premium arties in the game (Sexton I and LeFH) have no splash radius and no stun. Adding a mid/high tier Premium arty that does have splash radius and stun would make it harder for WG to tweak those two properties, I suppose.

Seems a reasonable enough explanation.

Well, they both have AP, and LeFH has HEAT too. And more HE pen then even most tier 8+ SPG's. And 450+ view range with binocs. So they compensate for their lack of splash just fine tbh. But that again reflects the issue with premium SPG's. As the class is adjusted all the time, premiums would remain the same. And with such a hated class that gets constant call for nerfs, and might get one soon again. There is little point to make one now.

How about, instead of making T8 premium SPG, similar to T-50-2, give all players with 5y+ acc a free tier 8 arty from the old times, like obj.261 or T92?:trollface:

Simple answer!

YES of course it would!

I am an arty player (Boooo hiss :P)

 

But seriously... 

It would not be good. 

I really enjoy playing arty when I am hung over. 

It is a chilled way to play when your a bit to f'ed to do anything else...

I do though own the Lefh, tho... Which is so OP that I actually get no enjoyment from playing it! 

I only play it now, when I get really p'ed off with WG... 

 

Any tier 8 version they introdued wold be OP! 

Plus it would cause a virtual riot with the player base... 

 

I really have no time for the pathetic whining arty haters, cos they have aways been part of the game! 

Plus these whining shxts are always looking for someone else to blame that is not them... 

They make their idiotic plays, but it could of course never be their own fault.... 

 

The only people I genuinely feel sorry for,  are the unicums that get xvm focused! 

Which is a genuine issue! 

 

I used to value xvm, tho I do not anymore! 

I agree with Daki! Xvm is toxic for the game! 

I find I am much less wired, & enjoy the game more by not using it! 

YES! I do get xvm focused.... 

But hey! It is nice to be popular...

Premium tier 8 version of M40 or M53 or M44 would probably be a smash hit.

 

I am surprised WG added Frontlines and didnt sell premium tier 8 arty, to be honest.

I beg to differ.

If WG can make money on premium arty, then WG will make premium arty.

Sooner or later.

It could be beneficial, but only if the crew stun effect would drop down to like 10% maximum, so it wouldn't cause that great of a nuisance.

 I play tier 9, with cola, and it makes a bit of credits after taking into acct food cost. Ok, I only buy food bulk on discount.

 

arty makes credits; that's it. If I wouldn't have premium, I wouldn't run food either.

 

Not saying it makes you rich or anything, but overall it makes credits.

 

p.s. - plus you don't need that many credits if you're an "arty player". There are 5 lines in total. I've bought more tanks only for urss lights/meds/heavies than there are arties in game. Also, gear is the same, so you just demount/mount on the next one.

Most high tier arty (9 & 10) have repair costs that are so high, you need a Godlike game to make a profit which includes full repairs. You die = no profit, you live = profit... and that is 'very' team dependent.

what a horrible thought

 

please keep the premium clickers at tier 5, we have really no need to see people with 10.000 battles in leFH come to tier 8... what is wrong with you ??
