 Our statistics show that about half of all commanders occasionally choose SPGs when going into battle.

 

Because you encourage/force players to play arty. For example in campaign missions where arty is required or in daily missions where you need to deal 7 critical hits in one battle.

Get lost WG, there should have been a 20 seconds video -  Commanders, we have good news. Arty is getting removed from the game!

do you know how to read? 500dmg on ap/heat won't one shot crap m8.

 

And where does it say that ap shells will do 500dmg? All it says is that ap shells will have the highest damage and penetration out of the 3.

 

I also find it strange that people on this forum resort to insults to try and get their point across.

I think that the last 2 stages started at 14:00 central European time. So this one might as well

09:58 Added after 2 minute
Interesting changes, can't wait to test them out. Hopefully this time, it will reduce arty's toxicity and allow us to play the game. Because at the moment, with 2 artas, you just can't show up to play without getting hit twice, losing 1k hp, losing several crew members and stunned to death making your tank useless. Then you just feel like going back at the corner and do nothing because that's better than getting killed by someone who hasn't moved 1 meter since the battle has started.

OK:

 

1. That information isn't even IN the article, so there's no way to know it without going on the youtube channel.

2. 500 dmg shots with enough pen to go through pretty much anything? If that video is to be believed the obj 261 will have russian medium gold levels of penetration which is absurd.

3. If you are going to keep resorting to insults I am just going to ignore you as I would any other bully.

If there were no personal campaign missions for arty I would have ZERO battles on that class

GREAT STUFF :)

I love play with arty so thx for that finally.

And we need more dmg in arty , its to low dmg with heavy tank when i hit with my french arty BC 155 58...

I hit for 100 or 200 dmg HT and its too low...

I cant support my team when 3-4 HT brawl and i hit for 100 DMG...

But i love playing with arty, i grind my second arty M40/m43 and i like more than BC 155 58.

Thx for little love for arty players.

Cheers

Remove indicators or let us hide them. It's already too late when you see them so they do nothing but cause a visual mess. Shell trajectory is enough and a good improvement.

Also remove arty missions and then we will see how popular arty really is.

1-2 arty per game. Stop 3 arty madness. We can live without a Dumitru's medal.

If you need to do more damage, go play a TD. If you want to play the game single handedly, without a direct line of fire/sight, you shouldn't complain about damage. 200 damage for clicking whilst eating a sandwich is already to much.

this is bad again sandboxes offer bad solutions some things are nice (shell travel time indicator) but how will we play in small maps like mines where everything can be tracked and you have no space to drive 

there is only one solution to this remove stun and bring back 1 shot shells 

then it was better for me i personally liked it more to get 1 shooted and go to garage and start other battle than this now i get frustrated because of stun  every F.....  10 sec

and there is guarantee that you will be hitted at all

MISSIONS how to do them now????

+  because of indicators , warnings and   shell tracers arty deaths in first minute will increase tnx to ebr
