Shouldn't arty be disqualified in tank madness. Four of the participants don't have artillery. Wouldn't it make sense to not count arty for point scoring? I played on the French team and picked up the win. I was tempted to go japan, but they lacked artillery. I noticed the abundance of French arty over the weekend. Is this fair?

How often do you see arty getting top 5 of the leaderboard? I rarely ever do.

The Japanese tech tree lacks high tier light tanks. Should these be disqualified?

 

The Czech line lacks heavy tanks. Should these be disqualified?

 

See what I am getting at?

Realistically, arty RARELY gets top 5 XP, so they won't be scoring that many points anyway. Its hard to get top 5 XP when you aren't spotting your own targets.

 

No sense discriminating against a vehicle that some players enjoy for the sake of taking away a very small number of completions. In my opinion.

Meh. Whatever. I hate arty just as much as any player, but if that’s how people want to get their completions then let them play how they want to play.

American sexton 1? American M53/M55? I see it plenty of times.

But not 1/2 the team's. Look at how close the France vs Japan results are. Suppose it came down to China vs either USA or Germany? Would lack of arty influence your selection? You think you can't top 5 with a sexton 1 at tier 3?

I got 12 of my 34 points in Arty. Pulled 8 in my leFH18B2 (a 5 point and a 3 point game) and 4 in my AMX 105 AM (a 3 point and a 1 point game). I hate playing Arty but I only have 7 French vehicles so I played them all.

I mean I spend most of my time playing tier 8+ vehicles so I rarely see tier 5 or lower

Wotinfo. Sexton 1 has win8 of 3265! Next highest tier 3 is the Blitzen with 1835. You don't think the sexton dominates the top 5 in tier 3 (maybe even 4)?

In Tank Madness tier 3 counts just as much as tier 8.

I'm well aware, my lack of variety in which tiers I play however means I don't see the matchmaking in the bottom tiers. My apologies

That didn't keep the BC 155 58s from showing up to the matchmaker in packs. Did not enjoy.

And to think, WG gave it away for free. To everyone.
What's their next giveaway, Pz.V/IV or US Sexton 1?? :facepalm:

It's bad enough that they keep selling them!

Yeah, I played my M4A1 Rev. twice and pulled 8 points. I didn't do nearly as well in my ARL 44 (1 point) or AMX Chaffee (1 Point). Those are my three highest Tier French Tanks.

It was definitely not fun but I very rarely saw any of them get in the top 5. Obviously though you may have seen lots of them make into the top. I'm just basing my opinion on what I saw.

Quite often actually.

From devoted arty drivers mostly, and a few known excessively over used due to their op tendencies artillery "tanks".

We all could probably name the most common of those artillery as well without even trying to think about it too hard.

They should make the free prize tank a premium arty. Can you imagine the amount of rage on the forum if they did that? :trollface:
