Had a day off today and a decent days tanking on EU, during GMT day light hours. Maximum 1 arty per side all day. Glorious. Teams trying their best, working hull down, side scrapping, working their tanks unique abilities. All good. 

 

Later in the evening, switch over the NA as the population dwindles. Wow, arty central. 3, 4, 5 a side. Teams trying their best, working hull down, side scrapping, working their tanks unique abilities. Doesn't matter, from 500m away most are one shot or crippled within a minute or two. Bored, they turn off for the night or switch to Fortnite / Forza / RDR2.

 

Why is more than 1 (maybe 2) arty per side still a thing? WG, you need players. Do the right thing, you know it makes sense.

but artillery stops camping remember. just play arty safe humping a rock or building completely ignoring your tanks strengths unless your driving a light.

I AM KING

and i declare death to all artillery, who will follow me on this righteous quest for freedom

Just stop camping at high rates of speed and you should be okay. :sceptic:

I hope to one day be wealthy enough to be considered eccentric rather than just plain nuts.

You need to play aggressively from 446m away from any red tank. Not camping ofc like that m103 that just got oneshot 40m from the red tanks, an aggressive play from outside spotting range. Absolutely not camping, did I say that already?

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

I learned that if there is more than one arty in the match, I better drive my heavy tank into the closest city. Buildings block half of the shells and arty likes to shoot easy targets first. Also, light tanks hate buildings and traffic jams that remove their only asset speed.  
My favorite tanks: Pz.Kpfw. II Luchs,  Spähpanzer I C, Cromwell Snakebite, AMX Chaffee, Cromwell B, Sherman Firefly Boilermaker, T-34, Pz.Kpfw. III/IV, Defiance Matilda,  Hetzer, T1 Heavy Tank, T14, Captured KV-1, Tiger 1, T29, Tiger 2, Dicker Max, Sexton I, leFH18B2

Funny...I had more artyless games yesterday (both servers) than I could ever remember having in a single day.

Same here, in fact most matches for me these past couple of weeks have been pretty "Arty Light" and I love it.

I play arty and have always felt that more than two arty per team spoils the match for everyone, and that's the way it's been since the beginning. Arty has always been an issue for so many players, it doesn't make sense that this has never been addressed by wg.

 It's easy to play arty safe.  Just make yourself a harder target than the teammate next to you who is doing an amazing job of side scrapping, hull down, and using his tank's unique abilities to sit in one spot.

If I was.an Arty player I would try and play the European Server.  A lot easier to hit the camping tanks of Europe than the aggressive game of manuever tanks on the NA server.  I suck at arty though.  It's too hard to play for me.
