Good God, not having a working internet connection at home sucks.....been out since a severe thunderstorm rolled through last Thursday night and lightning struck a house 2 streets over.
Man the IS is bad.

About half my matches yesterday did not have any artillery. I tried using completely non-traditional behaviors (center pushes, field irregularities, ...) to engage reds. Some were successful; others failed hard. WR was pretty bad on account of some silly yolo behavior.
One of the most successful maneuvers was on Highway.
Spawned in the northeast in a Matilda BP. XVM showed that the other team held an advantage with skilled heavies, but our team had the better mediums/lights. I expected all the heavies to drive into the refinery, as usual.
I drove straight to D4, fought my way to F2, then proceeded to cap. As the cap timer started, our team had just lost the fight for the refinery, with 0/5 red heavies destroyed. I congratulated them on successfully capturing the refinery, finished capping their base, and went on with the evening.
Oh yeah, Getsome only did one battle yesterday. About 140 defense points while waiting for my heavies to return and kill the tier 9 invader wannabes. Efficiency for yesterday was 15,735 (yes, 5 digits).
Another sometimes-works strategy we've done on that map is push up the river in stealth, back shoot the trail end of their rush then cap.
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
Don't feel special, Roy dog jawed a lot of folks. Only you got a titty twister though.
Non arty games really open up the map...they are almost like new games. I LOVE stepps with no arty....all those little dips make for some great hull down positions.
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.
Still my favorite tank. Well, after the t71 and AMX13/90.
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.
Which gun do you have? I have the D-25T, but no engine/tracks yet. SSLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW.
KV4... do I need the tracks before the engine?
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.
Soooooo.... I'm on for eh first time since 8.6 and I loaded a mod MEGA! pack. Now I want to remove most of teh crap i loaded. How do i do that? Speak slowly, I have very little sleep since byob.
According to Sam's link a few pages ago...
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.
