Does a spall liner have any effect on arty-damage? I used to always run it on my heavies but even my IS7 gets one-shot by a tier 9 arty whether I run it or not, so I no longer use it.

 

I've really tried to learn to play "arty-safe", but I can't find a way how to. On each map there are usually 2-3 corners/rocks in forward positions that let you play relatively safe from artillery, so why not just use those? Well, the sad news is, there are 15 tanks per side, or well I mean 12-13 plus the ever-occuring tumour-platoon, and not all of them can cramp up behind the same rocks.

 

The thing that pisses me off the most is the ability of artillery to shoot into a close-quarters melee without damaging friendlies. Now that's what I call a [edited]mechanic. You make a great play, tracking a heavy or a TD and go right on top of him, and --- BOOM, arty shot you, back to garage. Sometimes they get a direct hit on their friendly tank and the splash damage wrecks you. Who really thought this is good for the game?

 

A few weeks back I was in my 4th game in a row against an artillery platoon in my heavy tank, and I just had had enough. I went to the redline behind the spawn in Redshire, right where my own arties were. Just so it happens; I was the last one alive, did the most damage and wasn't hit by an arty a single time. So much for "camping prevention". Was it useful for my team? No. Was it useful for my blood pressure and well being? Hell yes. I would have suicided myself at the start of the match but it's not possible in Redshire.

 

I have one fantasy for this game, a perfect match. A game where I drive into the enemy spawn, kill all four artillery, drive back to base and push the four friendly artillery off a cliff.

 

Sometimes it's not possible to be helpful and also safe from Arty at the same time as a heavy tank. "Arty safe" is not a real thing. To answer about the spall liner, it helps against splash damage but shells that penetrate your tank (which Arty has to be doing to truly one shot you) will bypass the spall liner.

Alright, thanks for clearing it up. I assume for the same reasons that arty gold rounds (AP) bypass the spall liner as well. I guess it could still be useful against deathstars and Japanese heavies if they don't penetrate their shot, but that probably doesn't make it worthwhile.

 

Since my meltdown I've mostly played my Ru 251. I've killed well over a hundred artillery in just a few days. Feels great. Would still love to learn to play the E100 better but that's only for the most hardcore masochists.

Hopefully the wg employee that suggested artillery is out of work and eating dog food. Nothing less than wg sanctioned trolling.

Been going (slowly) down the French arty line, as I just finished the British line...French arty has been enjoyable so far.

AP isn't premium on high tier arty. It's premium HE really but lower tiers APCR/HEAT/AP is. For the most part

Bought my tier 8 German Arty on the recent "honored" sale. Stock everything, but used a few Premium HE shells (it only has two types stock). Got this weird RnG game and I fired 7 shots in all. I was not expecting this result. Tiers 7+8 game. Is this Arty good ?
