Just want to confirm with the experts that playing arty is easy and consistently topping (within top 3) damage and XP is just average (hey I'll take average since I do sub tomato in every other category).  I do at least take pride in doing better than every other arty in the battle (on either side).


 

 

Got TK'd for the very first time last night by the teams T49 at the start of the battle (T49 was the second to go mind you - not TK'd).  It was a 3 arty battle and he just TK'd me so not sure if it was just a random selection or payback for something.  We did lose the battle (convincingly) but I did get a nice credit bonus for his/her effort.

Yes arty requires the least ability and input relative to the rewards you get. This is nothing new.

That's OK - just wanted the confirmation.  I was thinking it was a niche area I might have been good at but then thought - nah....

1800 battles but my 'success' does depend on how long my team can stay alive.

you can still use arty matches to improve your map awareness. watch where your team/ enemy make strong plays and try adapt that to your own game.

 

map/vision control is a big part of this game and shooting involves a lot of chance and risk

SPGs need a second nerf.

Like double their reload or worsen accuracy

SPGs ought to have a non-removable snorkel so they can't go and drown themselves when they're losing. Pricks.

Just think Fram, it was a small price to pay for what was effectively an overall class buff.

Yep, well, prepare for a long grind on the Crusader Shit Pile. The top gun on that also has zero splash. Okay, it does have a splash radius, but all it'll do is stun, and it won't deal damage. So if you're used to what most other tier 7 SPGs are capable of, and want to splash someone around a corner, you can forget about it. Shells bounce off tanks now and then, most direct hits will only be double digit damage, and that's assuming you get a hit in the first place. With my German, US, and French arty, the crews already had two completed skills at tier VII. The UK crew are still half way through their 2nd skill as they exp they earn is so low.

 

On another note, I don't see why people hate arty so much

I am actually thinking of Free-XP-ing the Crusader SP. I know how little I'm afraid of one when on the other end of things.

 

But I'm not in any big hurry either, so we'll see.
