Call it what you will, XVM focus, bad positioning, unlucky, but at the end of the day it is 'No fun for you!'

 

This is a couple of my random games over the last week. (only ~ 1 minute long)

 

 

Don't forget arty is good for the game, it prevents camping, creates dynamic game play, stun mechanic has fixed everything. Arty is weak - please buff.

I think it's called "Daring to not camp = death by arty"

 

You are correct, a lot of the time trying to be aggressive or just getting spotted = arty focus time and it sucks the luv right out of things.

That is why I took a good break from the game. I just can't see how anyone can say that it's not an issue.

Good focus fire by red arty right there. I figure theres more then 1 tanks ping on your position, and some of those arty put mark that they are shooting on you. I also aim the same target my ally arty trying to shoot. Simple reason, stunned or tracked target are easy prey.

Thanks man, yeah I kinda do, but I am enjoying shooting things again when MM is balanced. Had one shocker of a game tonight but mostly been pretty easy going so far.

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

i have been saying that arty was BUFFED instead of "nerfed" since the very FIRST DAY of the patch, actually even before the patch release i was already having a bad feeling by watching youtube videos of the arty patch release on other servers... Its crazy some people will insist that arty is not a problem  and the "nerf" was appropriated, perhapes because they never get focused on by arty (which they will deny using anedoctes or by relativizing the word focus) , or maybe because they are arty player themselves...

 

arty buff is giving too much power to bad players, (which are the players who usually play arty) It puts on the wrong hands the role to decide the match's outcome.. there's needs to find ways to solve the hulldown strong armor meta, without using it as an excuse to keep arty in the game....

 

for example i feel i have bad lucky when it comes to arty in my team, the arty in my team are usually horrible players that always miss shots or are always shooting the wrong tanks (ie trying to kill a low tier unimportant tank while there is a huge type 5 in the open and spotted that our team or some hulldown fancy tank and arty will insist to ignore), this happens so often, shit players playing annoying tank. There is no need for data to conclude that arty is annoying and any kind of focus is annoying. It should be removed from the game and just give more tanks a better HE ammo without stupid stun effects.

funny how nobody complains when you either have good arty in your team or when enemy gets bad arty that can't hit you, but when an arty hits you you guys go eeeeeew haram.

Yes I too think it's funny how no one complains when there's nothing to complain about.

I never notice how good my arty is as it never affects me.

And bad arty will still stun, so not sure what good arty is?

I just take it as one of the basic meta of WoT pub game. The good arty are always on the red team :D

Well this game has finally broken me. After 17k battles the bad times now outweigh the good.

This is a snip from each one of my games last night bar one I think. Well done WG you have drove away another player. See you in the forums but not in game. :facepalm:

"Do you know what an artist and a sniper have in common? Details. Like when a touch of color is out of place. When a shadow does not match with its surroundings. Or when a shape is not where it is supposed to be. The only difference is the stakes. Mine are higher." - Glaz.*for some reason Recent WR and WN8 aren't show properly :/*
