I expected it while running my new tier 9 French arty and got a notification right after killing one Jageroo in a platoon of two of them.  But it was a compliment.  Nice guy because I had been dropping on him and his platoonmate almost all game.

 

 

And I got the best RNG when running stock and a 75 percent crew--11 of 16 shots hitting:

I've actually gotten quite a bit of hate mail of late, most of it from "top players" who think I "prem spam" and that they're "reporting me". I find it ironic actually, most of these players are the ones that have been in the game for four or more years (I have as well, just not on this account), some of which actually have worse statistics than me and in several cases, no Tier X's in that long.

 

I did get one yesterday, I won't name the player, that started out as hate mail then ended up being a compliment. The player called me a premium spammer, I was in the Jumbo with the potato cannon and heavy turret armor (best package imo), so I told them to go watch the replay. Much to my surprise, it seems they did and subsequently apologized. I do have to give them credit though, that player probably saved their team by damaging my gun, as the only targets left after him were a low health E8 Sherman, low health Stubbs, a French duck, an AT2 at about half health last I saw them and something artillery. I already had seven kills after I ran that player over, so he saved a Kolobanov's and a Pool's. As it was, because of the damaged gun, I whiffed a shot on the E8 and he got around behind me.

Ain't it just a great little tank. I absolutely love it. I sold my tier 10 version of it, couldn't handle the almost 70 second reload times. The French batchat arties may not have the biggest guns, but I consistently do more damage than I do with my M53/55 or T92. I also often send great shot messages after the game it someone on the opposition side takes me out and it happens to be a particularly difficult shot. I figure, as I enjoy playing arty, and there's so much hate around for arty players, it can't hurt to send a good shot or well played message every now and then.

You might have, I'm on a 360 so I don't always see messages immediately, especially if you're on a One. Aaand just checked the app for Windows and yes you did! The only non-hate mail I've gotten of late.

Dumbest thing I ever got was a message that simplely stated...

"Reported 4 u only going 4 me."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the point of the game to kill the enemy? Why wouldn't I finish off the guy in front of me I've already put a few rounds into? Nah I think I'll just leave you wounded and find something else to shoot so you can shoot me in the butt. :P

And its that very word, scumbag, which can get you chat banned for a week or two because you are going to hurt some little dweebs feelings and he'll report you got. Microsoft expect everyone to play on xbox live like its a utopian gaming community where everyone are shiny happy people holding hands.

Yes  indeed it is. But one must remember that over the past couple of decades, kids have been bought up wrapped in cotton wool and killing them in a game is  to them, a form of bullying which can result in them running to mummy or daddy in tears and crying about the awful bully who killed them. Of, course, mummy and daddy are very, very upset that their little Jonny is so horribly scared for life as more than likely, he has indeed been killed by a big bad meanie adult, and so file a report, or the hysterical little kid who 15 years old does. Imo, it should be Jonny who gets smacked with the Microsoft utopian bat for wasting their time by reporting a completely false accusation in the first place.

Awesome. And happened to me on Tuesday. My mate and I had tooned up and were both running our tier 9 Batchat artillery. It was a tier 10 match. I got 5 kills, he got 4 and the guy who finished on top got 4 kills. Needless to say, it was great fun and we helped carry the team through to the win, which wasn't looking very likely when they still had an arty, a tier 10 heavy and 2 German scorpion tanks left and there was just us two and a heavy left on our team. But both the scorpions rushed down the hill at us and I shotgunned the first one to oblivion and my mate shotgunned the other one a few seconds later. By this time their tier 10 heavy was capturing the base, it was an encounter match, and he shot him and set him on fire and he went boom  then he got the other arty and it was all over red rover. I got a message from the driver of the scorpion I shotgunned saying, Way to kill everyone, you both kicked butt. I thanked him for not being salty and he said he never minds dying if he deserves it. Refreshing to see compliments

It's got a 360° turret so you never have to worry about the hull moving and then having to wait the whole 7 or so seconds for the thing to aim in again. You also get to pump out rounds every 17 seconds or so because it's only a small gun. It doesn't do a hell of a lot of damage, in fact, many, many regular tanks in the game do higher damage per shot, but it's the most fun high tier arty I own, even though it's got the smallest gun.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt there an arty thread that is supposed to encompass ALL arty thoughts and posts? Why is it that pro arty threads are allowed to be posted while anti arty threads are "thrown" into the so called "official" arty thread? I am curious on this one folks

Good point. No enforcement of their rules maybe? Of course, there's sure to be plenty of anti arty posts in threads that started out being nothing to do with arty in the first place. It only takes one lesson to mention arty  doesn't matter if it's pro or anti, and that's enough to dissolve any thread into all our war:arta:

I received a voice chat from a player this morning, also arty, that was upset with me because I killed him. He had moved way forward, got spotted and I moved the targeting reticle over where he was. He disappeared but I bet he had not moved so send a round his way and sure enough, he had not moved. I was driving my Tier VI M44, can't remember his SPG. His message was that I had 'trey shot' him and he had my gamer tag and was going to be looking for me for the next few weeks. I replied back that I did not know what a 'trey shot' was and had no idea what it was I supposedly did wrong. Apparently a trey shot is when you shoot on muzzle flash rather than only shooting at spotted tanks? Is this a thing? Is it considered a non-sporting activity? On another but similar topic being discussed, I probably send complimentary notes after matches 70-80% of the time, evenly split between red and green. Well played is well played. The size of our junk, or more importantly, our worth as a person, is NOT measured by our W/L % on WOT. No reason to get so bent out of shape. Getting off my stump now. Thanks for listening!

It is called counter battery if they were in an atry.  Perfectly fine to do.   Just like doing blind shots on known camping spots.
