Hi guys, 

 

Just had a game where an enemy arty M44 shot me twice in under 12s. Is this possible?

The normal reload time is ~19s, so can crew skills and equipment bring it down so much?

Who knows. Clickers have plenty of free time on their hands, so he probably hacked the server between shells.

Is there a replay? Or perhaps a replay? Without a replay we can just as well deduce that there was 2 M44s or you were unable to count seconds correctly. Lowest you get is 15,64s afaik and scrap some more off if adrenaline rush was enabled.

15.64 probably felt like 12 seconds....

This sounds very suspicious and I would recommend escalating it to the very highest levels and demanding compensation

They were 2.

 

They are always at least 4 per battle, sometimes 6, so it's fair to assume they were 2.

It was probably an m44-2 prototype

Yes there were 2...

I was so sure that there was only one arty in the battle, i didn't even check when i watched the replay :facepalm:

You were correct that i didn't count the seconds right in-game. I got about 7-8s, but after watching the reply i got the correct number (11.7s). 

I don't know how to check if the same arty shoot me, or both of them, but i think it's pretty safe to assume that they shot one after the other :)

There are often two M44s in a team because it's one of the most broken and OP tank in the game, so every sad clicker abuses the hell out of it.

 

How that thing hasn't been nerfed is beyond me, WG completely screwed the nerf of mid tier arty, they have proportionally way more damage than higher tier arties, but much faster reloads.

 

A T92 if it pens needs a massive high roll to kill even the lower HP tier 9 TDs, an M44 can kill some same tier TDs with a high roll and it has less than HALF the reload, better accuracy, better aim time and is more likely to pen stuff as there is not much thick armour on tier 6 and loads of paper things.

 

Needs nerfing into the ground along with the tier 5 and 6 Germans SPGs

There are so many whine threads like this one, I wish people would just report them, but a new one will appear a few minutes later

This didn't start as arty whine thread, only one of the most recent posters started turning it into one by complaining about arty. You are free to report it.

Shh it's a secret prototype that is double barrelled, available to ardent clickers. Well I have one.

I would suspect that if you looked at the teams you would find more  than one M44 on the enemy team

 

Although that said, I have a reload time of 16 seconds with my standard rammer and coke, so maybe with a bounty rammer and the rammer directive they might be somewhere in that ball park but not as low as 12 seconds, so either you have the time wrong and are just guessing or there was more than one who were spit roasting you with HE

01:58 Added after 5 minute

Maybe a US sexton has crept across from the Xbox lol

 

You guys on here cry about arty incessantly, but the premium american arty on the console version of the game makes the PC arties look like soy boy beta arties by comparison

 

If you REALLY want to see an OP arty, play xbox for a while, theres even a Tier 8 premium US arty on there too which you will just "love" :)

Or how about a tier 8 premium arty with a 4 clip autoloader?
