I got in after 47 minutes. It was a test to see how long it would take. 

 

I have a solution! RANKED SPG's 15 v 15 would alleviate the wait!

Another solution....

Keep clicking, like myself, but play when there's more than 15k online.

It's so toxic they drove me pretty salty yesterday actually, spg needs to stop featuring in ranked it's clearly easy chevron farming...ya well as you can see from the screenshot attached in the op screenshot and this was a trend I have seen for every single ranked battle I played so far actually, SPG are by far the largest group of players in the Q... and in a "the most skilled meta" there's something wrong about that isn't there? given its the least skilled class?

 

Dear WG, kindly understand that this ranked battle meta is after all, supposed to be an offering which rewards skill and craft, yet the most rewarded and regular top3 for both teams is the class requiring the least skill and is the easiest way to farm chevys. The fact that clicker class have huge waiting times speaks volumes and just supports everything I just said. It's also detrimentally negative and toxic to an already heavily negative and campy playstyle meta.

 

There's no point in introducing roll bonuses and trying to encourage positive, less campy playstyle, adding these counter measures to get players to not camp redline when you allow the least skilled class in the game participate in what's supposed to be the most skilled meta, a class which knocks the balls off tanks even with missed shots for daring to move forwards. Get rid of them from ranked, they're forking toxic, make the meta disgusting and evidently, based on the numbers queuing and the fact they regularly feature top 3 on both teams, very much makes sense to play them in this meta, chevrons for sitting at the back of the map clicking on players, gj wg honestly do you actually know what you're doing?

It's because arty is the only way to make progress after hitting the skill ceiling with other tanks.

Seems perfectly fine to me.

 

It's better to ruin games for arty, than arty to ruin games for everyone else.

Yes there is an easy fix, balance tier X tanks so that they are equally good and stop the use of OP CW tanks that everyone but the already best players don't have access to!

 

As long as I don't have a 279e,Chieftan or 907 I will continue to play SPG and "balance" these tanks acccordingly!

 

It's so ironic that some people find arty toxic being hit with 200-500dmg every 40s at the worst by sitting still in the same place, preferably next to other people. I wonder why you get targeted and not the ones moving about or not going to the usual camping hull down spots? The stun mechanic is almost useless as everyone carries prem. consumables and have good repair crews.

 

The same entitled people above have absolutely no problems driving around a hull down impenetrable heavy with medium tank movement capability, OP DPM and most often full improved equipment, yeah I am talking to you Chieftan owners...

 

Playing arty is actually hard as some maps in ranked rotation are actually hard to be effective in. (Himmelsdorf, Mountain Pass) You also need to move constantly to get good angles, avoid counter fire and not be spotted and killed by yoloing EBRs. How is no one complaining about the 2-3 EBRs in every game that render camo useless for everyone?

 

So if people are prepared to sit in the Lobby a couple of minutes in order to play arty this is completely fine. If this is a real problem it could be solved by allowing 3 artys per battle...

 

Btw, lately I have stopped spamming gold arty shells at Chieftans etc and am instead targeting the progettos hiding in a bush at the back not helping their team and just trying to steal kills in the end in order to get more points than their teammates that they abandoned as soon as they saw an enemy tank. Ah the meta...

Hello everyone, 

 

Please do not whine about SPG in this thread and avoid comments such as "play another class". It is not the subject.

 

Thank you in advance.

The 2 arties every game in ranked is why I have played a lot of EBR 105, they shoot what I spot and I also frequently get to be the one who killed them.

 

Played one game on Fisherman's bay, where me in a UDES 15/16 and M48 Patton went middle, any time we got spotted, both arties hit either him or me, after this happened like 2-3 times, we both went and camped, a SC on our team took our place, same thing happened to him, so he went and camped, fun times.

Well at least look into adding a "I got SPG focused" or "arty magnet" extra xp reward lol... and I'm half serious about that. If I'm pushing flanks in my 430U or whatever, and getting clicked on the entire battle so long as I'm alive, that's a bloody good service I'm providing for everyone else on the team and means they're not getting clicked so long as I am... but of course I get nothing for it, just the grief and that's not fair that if a player gets focused on for that particular battle, effectively removed as a force and removed as a good chevy generating chance, that they don't get anything for it.

 

I get role rewarded for blocking shots with my 430U why do we not get rewarded for getting smashed with SPG bombs? It's not something to play for believe me! but also it's not really something a player can avoid so long as they are in the meta. Mention it, it's worth exploring. Several battles I was denied a chevy or two chevys because those clickers turned their attentions on me... sucks so bad man it's not even funny.
