What's the deal, how on earth are games filled with 3 arty MM even on higher tiers in 2021?!

 

After the HE update, the game was in a better shape than I've ever seen it, but over the past week or so it has changed dramatically. There could be one random 3 arty game at lower tiers, but now tier 6 is guaranteed 3 arty game and even higher tiers have at least 2 most of the time. Did I miss something with 1.14?

 

If this MM continues like it is, it's gonna be time for another break.

 

EDIT: And no, I have no problem performing in 3 arty games, just absolutely hate the experience and gameplay it calls for.

It's been like this ever since the max 5 arty per game cap was reduced to 3.

I see nothing new here.

Last few days it also feels for me as if there's ever so slightly more arty. Could just be a coincidence though.

But if there is an increase, then I guess people are maybe just getting used to it, idunno.

Yes, imo the sky pig terror is as disgusting as it was before the HE changes. The 3 x M44 or LeFhfhfhfhh per team are back in the lower tiers too. 

 

The completely idiot clown cars are a mere nuisance but this however is rapidly killing the fun again. If anything, sky pigs promote camping, you move it rains pig excrements...

 

Well, at least we're getting the chance to go on larger scale piggy hunts again and see more of those cowards explode, rammed or jump of cliffs/drown themselves again.

Been getting a lot of

- dmg x amount of tanks in a game

- cause x amount of critical hits (in a game)

as my daily missions lately, so playing more SPGs myself. But that is generally T8+ (as I am trying to complete some campaign missions with honours).

I think moderation works with your message of hatred and contempt for artillery players.

I've noticed a few more 3 arty games, but nowhere near what we had previously at higher tiers where it was basically 2 or 3 most games, IIRC when I reviewed my replays it was above 60% at tier 9 and 10.


Definitely seeing far more no arty games as well.

 

I presume though missions are still a thing, and loads of those require arty or are relatively easily with arty, and at the end of the day even with it heavily nerfed, it's still the easiest way to play the game and terrible players will still probably contribute more than they could ever in normal tanks, so that sort of crutch is hard to give up. 

 

If numbers increase again it'll eventually just get nerfed, I am pretty sure WG's intention all along has been to nerf it so people don't play it, so they can avoid the messy removal.

Daily missions, and campaign missions ...

 

And then there are those usual ones who play it anyhow...
