Don't know if anyone has mentioned this before and don't want to check thru 900 odd pages but is anyone else's arty getting stuck in the overhead view if that's what you call it. It's happening me regularly but not every game. When it happens I can only change to the trajectory view and back. Doesn't help when you get spotted and try to run lol.

I do not recall reading about such an issue nor have I experienced it. Could it be a controller issue? Button getting stuck or something?

2 very quick questions.  1.  Other than BIA,  what are the 1st 3 picks for crews?  2.  Agressive follow the front at medium distance behind cover or backline cowardice?

I like all tanks, but I know any post about arty provokes outrage from haters.  What the hell happened to the M53?  I will complete US line when finished with this tank.  I went from having some of the best games in this tank on Monday/Tuesday, to yesterday and today.  All of sudden, shell either travels long or short.  I chalked off the first few to random rng, but it has been consistently missing.  I shot 4 shells at same target, standing still, fully locked in, long, short, long, long.  I adjusted for the long, short.  I slightly adjust for the short, long, i then leave alone, even longer.  I am at 180k.  Is this the magic point when WOT almost tries to make you quit a tank?  I know it happens in my heavies/mediums/lights, when your tank is finally on fire, then bounce, bounce, you get tracked ammo racked, set on fire etc. from the first shell that hits you.  Please let me know if anyone has experienced this.  I have a very good crew (8 skills).

I belive it's caused by random number generator's seed number. With the same seed number you get the same bad RNG number sequency during the battle. With bad sequency, It can feel like you are cursed to fail and with a good sequency it feels like you are blessed. Not sure if RNG implementation is that simple in the game, but they need the seed number to run the pseudorandom generator and as this is not a online casino game or they may have a simple solution in use.  When RNG is really bad, I turn my console off and take a short break.

you could be forgiven for thinking that most arty players play with their eyes closed, I got a salty message off a green arty last night because he died to a batchat... Apparently it was my fault, I "let him roll right through"... Sorry mate, let me just stop what I'm doing and chase a batchat around the map so you don't have to move :great:

While I play tanks and arty, I noticed that many artillery players don't mark their targets and it's really hard to tell what they are shooting at.

 

Here is an example how green TD, heavy and medium defend Arctic Region's norther flank against four red heavy tanks that push hard with artillery support.  Video It shows how indirect fire support can make a difference and how important it is for artillery to mark targets to show what they are planning to shoot.

 

 

It's easy to mark target in PS4, it's the same key that you use to request fire on target. In PS4 you just press (x) when the tank is under your cross hair, if you have a clear path to shoot at it the >>> mark appears on top of enemy tanks.  There is two benefits to use this target marking, first the other arty knows what flank you are shooting or if he is free he can also shoots at the same target. Second, tanks near the target know that arty is going to take a shot and they can time their actions to the incoming fire.

My favorite thing about Arty is.... nothing.  I love games where Arty is nowhere to be found.  No skill? Play Arty...

My favorite thing about about Arty is 1 shot kills and getting salty messages from salty players.

I like to shotgun light tanks, it's fun when light tank rush towards me thinking that my arty is  easy to kill.  :teethhappy:

 

Here is an example of classic light tank rushing to kill defenseless arty.  :B

I tend  to agree with you on this, though being one shot back to the garage by any tank still sucks.

Haven't played much lately, I was quite happy when this opportunity presented itself:
