French and US artillery are fun. 

 

Have fun nuking people cross map at the higher tiers.

 

Also load HEAT on the M41 and m44

American or German, they're both great. Whatever you do, do not start the Soviet arty line as your first arty line. It will sap your will to live.

that tank if played correctly is a beast based on what i have seen. but it is not a tank i would want to play simply because of the range of the gun. thank you for the Suggestion though :D

i tried out the german and US line a long time ago, but got sick of the RNG and stopped. but now i am in the mood to try arty again :D.

i will try US and French artillery first. then i will try german later.

thanks for the tips though! :D

Be ready to have hate mail sent to you and being called out for being a nonskilled newb here on the forums. I recommend the 53/55 and the late Russian arty.

So what you need to do is not play arty at all, you won't get hated by thousands of players like me! :trollface::D

American are the obvious choice for easy mode. Don't go down the Brits unless you hate your life, the Bert is the only fun tank between tiers 2-9 IMO. French and Soviet are okay, and Germany is a good alternative to US if you like having less speed but still decent cannons.

I am currently grinding the French Lorraine 155 50. I heard this thing was junk but I’m doing alright in it.  It’s kinda fun truth be told.

Just got a gores medal and I’m still stock.

The thing I like about the French line is the speed.  I can shoot and zoom halfway across the map before I shoots again.  Zooming around is a lot funner than sitting in one place.  Getting some unexpected shots in on city maps as well by relocating all the time.  Damage is decent as well.
Can’t wait to get a turret.

American line. Only unlock the T92 though, it’s a bit of a pup. The M53/55 is a better arty, fire premium HE, then wait for the salty messages to start. The tears are delicious. :trollface:

Don't bother it's not enjoyable, i tried to grind out arta as i wanted to complete all lines but it's just tedium.

 

You get a few hilarious moments but other than that it's just boring, i actually shot 5 shells at a T32 that wasn't moving for 2 splash damage hits. 


I don't play anymore, just loiter around the forum from time to time.

Go for the US line.
The British and French are anemic in terms of damage, and the Soviet line has gun traverses similar to those of the high tier Swedes.

You could go Germans, but I don't know enough to comment. I do know that it's effectively downhill from tier VIII, as the IX and X share the same gun, but with a lower rate of fire.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

The British line is ok and includes Bert which is still worth a look even though it's been nerfed to nerfdom cos obviously people were having too much fun in it. Damage is crappy but fires quite quickly and is pretty accurate which I like, you feel like you're actually doing something

 

German line was ok as far as I remember (I was on the 360 and it was 3 or 4 years ago) but I didn't really enjoy arty until the Brits

 

the best thing about arty is the top down view. When you're a bit w*nkered it provides a nice change of pace and killing tanks which have not been spotted is absolutely sublime

Germans are great. I kept the GWE100 over the T92. 21cm cannon goes OmNomNom! They’re actually pretty good at tier VI and VII as well.  

 

But for your first artillery line it has to be US.  Much more flexible and forgiving throughout the range of them.

The only arty I have that I enjoy is the French premium, I call him Lefty. I've got sexy Sam also, but I don't feel good when I play it lol.
I'm at the M44 on the US line. I want to grind all tier Xs for 'Merica. That tank really sucks all of the life out of me. I have rage sold it twice. Arty play is just a bunch of sitting, waiting and missing. It is so boring, I don't know how people do it regularly.
Lefty in the other had is fast aiming and pretty accurate. Doesn't get many one shots, which I like. But all in all, arty isn't for me.

Interesting to know, I'm considering picking it up.

 

I got the M41 to make use of my parking pass as I never got further than the Wespe (as arty is horrible to play) and feel I should have at least one art in the garage, however it's like pulling teeth.
