My hardship isn't arty, nor MM per se. The tanks my teams have been given could certainly ... usually... do the job had the tankers, themselves, been of the right mindset, not been 14 years old, not been drunk(?), had been arty aware in positioning ... had not left cap to get a few more shots in on distant enemies while ensuring our loss...

It is what it is. War Gaming created a game that all can enter. Our choice is to find the games that, by design, cull the weak or problematic.

I also think the bot thing is becomming more and more normal.

I saw one tank...a JS no less on the enemy team, drive right past me and get stuck on going up a cliff....I was the only one on that flank...he just sat there...back a little then forward....the turret never moved....I killed it and reported it as a likely bot.

Like I said I do enjoy the game, but it is gone down hill in the quality of players and the people that play arty are much more....and they are a vocal group.

I have seen ad's for the game on a few different TV shows so I know it is really growing and this is what I mark it up to...so I don't really mind the bad players or losing games...don't give a rip about my stats...I know what kind of player I am.

The thing that just drives me away is the arty....and in the end I think that is going to be what causes me to uninstall.

You need to make an honest effort to play arty, and then tell me again it's too accurate. Arty is not the click-and-kill beast you make it out to be, even with a 100% crew. Like I said before, my best arty has a 40% hit rate...my tanks have 80 and 90% hit rates. Yes, when arty hits, it hits hard.

When and if it hits.

If you're not taking advantage of the terrain to make enemy arty's job harder, then that's on you.

All 3 of my arty was way off again last night. The night before? The Priest was a laser.

I do find your argument interesting an how it's too accurate, but mount the same tube in a direct fire weapon with an even faster reload on a turret and it's fine? 75mm and 105mm in the US tanks, 122 in the Russian, 105mm in the German lines. When they call them Howitzers, they are arty tubes mounted more horizontal.

Perhaps they should have just called the game World of Armor

I've had that happen to me when I time out and disconnect or get a real long lag. Not always a bot.

Oh good lord... If you don't like it, then don't play. Its a game. If you want to change it, write your own. Its not a democracy.

You guys are taking this way too seriously. Its an amusing game. That's all. It isn't solving world hunger...

I think we may be seeing the normal boosted first win multiplier idiocy. It always brings the idiots out.

3 man platoons w/TS seem to help.

3 man platoons w/TS and SU-26's on a decent arty map is as much fun as a bag of boobs.
Not quite the hand of god, but if you're the poor sap that gets targeted it may as well be.
Coordinated artillery fire is supposed to be devastating.

It's right up there with Tier 1 sandbagging in my book.

I would hate to be on the receiving end of that in a tier 3/4 tank.

So it is up to me to hump every hill, tree and house....that is just flat fucking stupid.

As far as playing arty...yea I can't....I find it a total bore....so all I can speak of is being on the recieving end....and I can tell you that when the first shell fired at me lands dead square right down the hatch it is too accurate....fuckin paladin is not that accurate....but dead horse. And I know it will never change...the idiots that play it (don't take it personal) are a large and vocal group, and they will never get another dime of my money....so that is that.

That's the way the game is played. If you want to make it easy, us arty players will take the kills. I'm just telling you, for every first hit on you, there are 3-4 others that missed....and depending on the fuse on the shell, Paladin is that accurate....

Don't forget the half dozen gold rounds for it, though.

How about tonight? I could use some carnage.

I only carry 2 on mine. Rammer, net, spall liner 100% crew almost to thier first skill/perk.

Sooooo.... on the Patton, I'm to the point where I need to decide to max the engine first or the turret? Everything else is maxed.

Sounds good. I'll be on.
No gold rounds for me. I only run HE in it.

Turret. It needs all the armor it can get. I don't recall the bigger engine making that much of a difference. It likely kept me out of trouble by forcing me to stay back a bit.
