Hey guys, i am a new player and i mostly play TDs.

While I was thinking about starting an arty tree grinding i picked up the British tree but my results have not meet my expectations. i often miss a shot or do significantly less damage. I heard about the accurate French SPGs (which i would like to try) and i want to give it a shot

 

I have grinded till Bishop (tier V) in the British tree and I am facing a very annoying issue of "Limited Firing Range". I often have to go forwards which results in my deaths.

 

Plz Help!

Limited firing range is a unique feature of the British tier 5 and 6 artillery which can be bother a benefit and a detriment.

The detriment as you have found out is "Limited Firing Range" which means you need to be aware of your surroundings and pick good spots that are close to the front line.

The benefit is the arc you get from having such a short range. When firing at maximum range, your shots are landing at 90 degree angles, which makes it easier to penetrate weak engine decks and firing over obstacles. You will get significantly less penetrations due to the artillery changes.

 

The later tier 7, 8 and 9 artillery do not have this unique feature. The tier 10 has this feature, but the range is long enough to cover most of the map.

 

French artillery is accurate, but falls short on damage and splash on later tiers due to the artillery changes. I would recommend American artillery as the most flexible tree. Starting from tier 6, you start to get big splash which is essential to damage due to the changes. They also tend to have better horizontal arcs than German and Soviet artillery, making them more user friendly.

 

 

Also, a piece of advice. If you're expecting the full damage listed on the shell, you will be in for some major disappointment. Expect to do 1/3rd the amount of damage per hit. 1/4th or 1/5th if you're shooting a heavily armored tank from the front. Oh and artillery generally has a bad reputation for being annoying. Nobody likes artillery.


 

RIP Aufklärungspanzer Panther 16th July 2015. You will be missed, friend.

But not for long. For "Heroes never die."

uk line getting much better after tier 8, russian are getting good after tier 7 and USA getting better after tier 4 

In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

 

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks

And you will generate an obscene amount of salt with UK arty firing over obstacles.

 

Don't ever discount the salt!
