It just seems from personal observations that I am seeing fewer artillery in battles. Many battles are artillery free. Yes you still see three per side in a battle, but fewer and fewer. Looking at the battle queue, and not many waiting. With all the lights in game has it become too difficult to play artillery? Perhaps other reasons, like general player population decline? Just thinking out loud, different thoughts about this observation of mine.

Yup...You've had all your Pasccuci's you could have....Forget about it now.

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

I actually like having 1 arty in the game. 

1 is certainly enough though.

Very true I think, less arty per battle for a while now.  
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

I think so, I'm guessing it's all the higher light tanks running around.  There's been several battles lately where I've been spotted with in the 1st minute of the battle and was killed before I fired a shot.

Ironically I'm spreading the hate and frustration I've suffered over the past almost 3 years by playing nothing but Tier V and VI American and Russian arty :)

With the new Trajectory view it is so broken,  it's basically a loophole gun sight but better, in my opinion.  I can take my turn blapping you from across the map and now also directly aim at and blast incoming tanks. I can taste the salt when I play as basically a lightly armored derp TD that shoots across maps.

Good. Aside from the American line, the ridiculous trajectories and fire rate of them make the game miserable.
