Yeah, but they need to be every time you earn a badge. Otherwise whats the purpose of the badges other than bragging rights. just my thoughts to make the badges more significant

I also had quite a few no arty matches...or very few arty matches....I only have about 15 days left on my prem....before the patch I was done with this game....after the patch I only played one or two, and did pretty sucky....yesterday I tore up my thumb with a grinder and gounded myself for a bit...so I played...the games where fun, and had very little arty....if it stays this way they might get another $100 out of me.

I am no means the best at arty, but I still play mine. I have noticed the severe lack or just a few. Many games, I was the only one, but there was one game were there was still 4 on each side. I guess everyone was trying to get their last X3 for the weekend. I still do alright. Got 3 kills in one game with my GW Tiger.

just got my kv-4. It's putting me in pretty much the same matches as it put me in the kv-3. Only now I don't lose all my health as soon as I see someone.

So where is all the arti going?
Are they waiting 5 minutes for a game or have they just been nerfed so much that nobody is playing?

I'm not complaining... I'm digging averaging one per side.

Aim time +60% on average, so you have to decide where to shoot about 15 seconds before you fire. Apparently this is rage inducing for most of the arty community.

I haven't run my Obj261 since the patch. I figured I'd wait a month until everyone gets complacent.

No. However, ground resistance decreases with the tracks. Buy tracks first.

I have not experienced a wait any longer than any of my other tanks. I guess that it is a boycott. :-)

- after 0.8.6, the amount of battles played on arty vehicles dropped “several times”, “many” players sold their arties, so far, according to SerB the impact on arty is as planned
I dunno. Like I said before, I find it a nicely balanced game now, playing Artillery is no longer 2nd grade whack-a-mole, but a real skill, and if played well, can still contribute mightily and rack up kills. I think what happened is, we just lost all the bad arty players, so if you see arty in your game, fear them. Fear them well.

Getsome and I were just in a battle where everyone was Tier 7 and below... except a single Tier 8 M40/43 on each side (i.e. the top tier tanks for each team was arti).

That was different...

I kept my Wespe, and I'm still deadly with it, I just can't spray and pray like before with the slow reload. Seems to work better in TD mode than before, more one-shot direct kills.

I never got on with the Grille so I sold it. Don't miss it.

Sold my T-50 as well, for that matter. Sick of the tier IX battles. Moved the crew to russian TDs instead, we'll see how that goes.
