Hey 3 SPG's in a random match is a nonsense my teams mates and i got destroyed by spgs and we where in the city (erienberg) so it's hard for spg to hit there but still they did 1500 damage to me and also my team spg prevent gameplay not camping , and also it courage us to camp so we won't get hit by them , also how can a m40/m43 hit for 490 a defender? spgs are broken 1-2 is enough and especially when you are low tier and getting matched with tier 9 and 10 spgs

we all know this, and WG doesn't care.

6*

 

Anyway, this will probably get locked, cause arty has it's own dedicated thread.

I agree, it should be limited to 1 only

So today you learnt that you can't sit in the position you were in if arty is in play.

 

Of course if you'd learned a smidge quicker he wouldn't have had the opportunity to hit you 3-4+ times over a 2 min period..

We can do a pool as on a ship on how long it takes our ever-alert mods to notice this one (actually alerting them would be cheating).

Hours for specific bets

Short pool is 12 hours

Long poll is 36 hours

Artillery prevents camping.

 

Stay in bush or hide behind rock to stay safe!

A tank not sold for a year because players cried about it being far too over powered is                                                     about SPGs in a map that has lots of cover and buildings to block arc shots.

Stating the obvious to the OP every map has choke points, if a SPG is aiming at them you get hit. If you know how to play you don't play like a muffin and not set up at an SPG kill zone.

but yes I agree. 1 arty per team is ideal though. 

 

With one arty in a game there is 1/14 chance you might get hit, with 3 arty it's 1/4 which is 4x more that 1 arty games. (excluding other arty as targets).

As you know that argument has been going for years and years and years and WG in all their infinite lack of wisdom, common sense and reason, coupled with an insurmountable amount of greed, and due to a few other dubious cultural motivations and traits, do not and will not listen. You cant teach a blind person to see when their vision is physically impaired...and WG's collective vision is physically impaired, figuratively speaking of course.

They really should do it on mid-tiers. 6 M44's or 4 Leafblowers and 2 M44s is a tad silly. I don't care when I have 3 Tier 8 or X's hitting me. But tier for tier, it's more broken lower down.

Whilst I dont mind either playing or facing SPGs I do think 3 is a bit excessive tbh

 

But with such massively declining player numbers AND personal missions that require you to play arty I really dont know what you expect?

 

And with my current lack of interest in the game after seeing the nuts and bolts of what equipment 2.0 is bringing I'll probably be playing a LOT more artillery myself while I binge watch some TV shows until my premium time runs out

 

In fact whilst trying to grind out some missions in my T57 today I quite literally couldnt be bothered to move much away from the cap circle and pretty much just lay in wait for flanks to collapse so I had something to shoot at, so arty would fit right in with that level of CBA perfectly

Learn to be spotter then.

 

There's been lots of games with no arty today and they have been so boring.

Oh, ok, so it was overly vague then

 

Problem with "be a spotter" is the EBRs, which I think are actually worse for the game than arty

 

So that would be a pretty big nope for anyone trying to grind pretty much ANY non arty non EBR tank about now really
