For those of you who want arty to be removed from the game, it will never be removed. If that were to happen, WG would be risking the loss of thousands of players. The fact that arty is in the game is not a problem. The problem is its next to impossible to avoid. The best advice I have ever heard from experienced players is to drive around like you're drunk. Well, I was driving downhill max speed in my progetto in El Halluf. I was trying to flank an enemy and save my team's HTs. As I was going downhill, a GW Panther shot me and killed me. Not so sure how the arty player managed to do such a shot. 

 

The Answer to this problem is right in front of us. Arty only seems to be a big problem when there are 3 of them in each team in a match. Its pretty ridiculous if you ask me. So why doesn't WG just reduce the maximum amount of arty per match to 2? maybe even 1. Because when there are three arties in a team, and you are in a heavy, you will be constantly showered with that 500 dmg HE of theirs. They will keep tracking you and stunning you to the point where repair kits and first aid kits deem useless. And while you are being REKT by the arty, some enemy comes along, and finishes you with a final shot.

 

And it's not just those problems I listed above that ruin an HT player's fun, its those american arties. They seem to have the highest damage in the game.... and oh.. don't get me started about those clip-based french arty...

 

So anyways, I conclude this post with a question: How exactly do avoid arty? When they pick me for a target, it stays that way for the rest of the match.

BC58 still a threat? I take that pos as enemy over m53/55 or SU-14-2 any day. That arty probably the weakest arty in wot tier per tier.

the best antidote for playing arty is to...play some arty...

 

i have been working on the t28 spg missions in my m44 and as a support tank I have been at the mercy of the most moronic collection of muppets that the server can throw up...i have sacrificed my winrate (15% today!!!:() and wn8 because most ‘teams’ don’t appear to have grasped the basics of this game and the battle is over before u even get a chance to set up...

 

the suckiness of the gameplay and the reliance on idiots have cured me of any desire to play arty ever again...perhaps we can force this on everyone to cure them too?

Haven't played for a week, so can confirm that this works.

From personal experience, at the start of the match just avoid being spotted especially if its an open map. Being spotted early means the spg's attention will be focused on you. But the reality is that, you just have to accept and come to terms with the fact that there will always be talentless players on the server bombing you in their spgs.

Can't avoid it unfortunately. Some games you're just doomed to die to it no matter what you do. It's the reason I haven't really felt like playing for a few weeks now.

on some maps you can use builds and that to make it hard for them to hit you.

 

on open maps keep moving don't go up the ridge to the same spot all the time and killing their spotter makes life way better.

 

also use bushes don't hide in them but behind them.

 

but remember you will have bad games where you die to them.

 

oh and the sixth sense skill does help.

Kind of surprised you can still manage to string words together to form coherent sentences after such a mind numbing slog :D

Well, it's arty... you can do other things at the same time... :P

 

A bit annoying though. I've met the requirements (3k damage, 2.5k assist) 3 times in the past 2 days, only my team has managed to lose each of those games. :angry:
