I almost like the arty better'n the tanks now (T57). Too bad the other players don't know enough to protect the artillery.
Now I wish I could get more experience points faster........without draining my paypay account so I can get a longer range gun.

Other than that, it's find targets as your teammates spot them and then wait for the aim circle to tighten up. Arty is an exercise in patience and frustration....waiting for the aim circle to tighten, waiting for the gun to reload, aiming at a target only to have them move as soon as you fire, aiming at a target only to have the shot fall outside the probability cone time after time after time.....yet I still put my M37 into battle.
Oh, and one other sneaky thing you can do....as you play the maps more, you will start to learn the usual ambush spots. Look at those in the overhead view and watch for shot trails and then you can take shots at tanks you can't see. I've killed and been killed doing this.
