After taking a break from the French arty line, I recently picked up  where I left off with the AMX 13 AM, and gameplay has reminded me why I stopped playing with the French arties in the first place. I have 100% crew, and despite that I'm still only hitting 1/11 shots, and the rest are going well wide. That's atrocious! Are the crew drunk on du vin or something? 100% crew should have better gun handling on that. Is this what the rest of the line is going to be like?

Tier 4 was bloody awesome for me. Tier 5 decided that hitting things was overrated and that instead i should miss by 30 metres. 

 

The tier 6 however is just <3

Both Lorraines are quite meh, the tier 9 is meh, don't have the 10 yet.

 

The French seem to trade off just about everything firepower wise for some straight line speed which is a pretty crap trade. Basically they are better at running away or relocating than the other SPG's and worse in most other ways.

Tier 8/6 are pretty good, tier 7 is meh. I got like 40% hit on Lorr 51.. maybe bit lower, I forgot. But its quite reliable to snipe those med. I rarely aim for HT. Low damage roll, not really worth it.

Secret to doing well in the tier 4? Fire APCR.

with the proposed changes I can say NO!!, you will rely on the lemmings that whinge about arty to make your xp and credits. with the current lemming train mentality OT has come up with a way to remove all arty

That's a real shame. I agree that the tier IV was pretty decent; I think I was getting more hits with a 75% crew on that than with a 100% crew on the tier V. I might play up to tier VI on this line, a bit iffy, but we'll see. The proposed changes really don't sound that good at all, but it remains to be seen what they finalise. Perhaps reduced RNG and stun can be made to work well with Frenchies higher rate of fire? Pretty much the only thing it would be good for is the higher rate of stun, especially if the already low damage roll will get nerfed.

French Arty does get better, the Batchat arty is fun at Tier 10, large reload time but then unload 4 shells on someone playing a stupid move, however fast mobile players or those using cover well forget it there's no splash to speak of, so unless you are good and rng loves you those are very hard to hit.

 

The AMX 13 AM and in fact all french arty tier 5 and above are those you just can't rush your shot in at all............there's no Hand of Stalin to direct your shell, and no massive splash damage to make up for large misses. Good positioning, knowing your gun arc well, and forward thought sees French arty going ok, so long as you have a 2 count after it is fully aimed. Hit ratio is like most things arty, expect 30-45% on average even for fully aimed and settled shots.

 

The good thing about french arty is the speed, use it to change the angles on the opposition team, to often I see french arty just sitting back near base, where a quick run up a flank that's been cleared and suddenly arty is raining on the enemy from an unexpected angle.
