I know right. 

Regardless I’m buying loot boxes, gold or something from WG tonight to celebrate them letting down an arty player.

You aren't going to get much sympathy here OP.

For what it's worth, I'd be ok seeing more premium or TT arty added. Just no merc arty. That would be more likely to flood MM. But I guess I could just play more light tanks if that happened.

 

Oh I know that theres no sympathy coming. Someone has to speak out about it and I have chosen to be one of the only honest pro Arty topic contributers for a couple years.

 

Arty will never be removed from the game, do u know the honest answer why? 

Tech Engineer badge.

As stated in this thread numerous times not alot of people enjoy Arty. Add in the fact its the worst xp slog in the game... what do you end up with? 

A free xp dumpster fire that spits out hot dollar bills from all the players who "buy" their way thru the lines or buy their way thru the worst of them.

 

In fact, I am willing to bet you that besides the Waffle and Deathstar, there is no other bigger free xp converting machine then the Arty lines. What I mean by that is people spend money to finish them or bypass certain tanks in the lines.

 

Its a wall, and a rather big one if you are setting your sights on achieving the Tech Engineer award. It makes WG money. 

 

When I got into playing Arty years ago, and was playing on average 40 hrs of tanks a week give or take, (with a few days off here and there, some days I'd play 10hrs +) it took me over 14 months to grind every Arty line from the ground up. Only using earned free xp and not spending money on xp conversion. 14 months, thats a huge [edited]wall.

 

Its the only reason to keep Arty in the game after basically stoping creating content for it. Is it broken? Thats up for debate, it is however extremely unpopular and yes people have quit because of Arty. The only justification for non action against Arty or the complete removal of it is $$$.

 

You all can try trolling me and say what you will about me leaving, but the bottom line is this: I use to spend 60-100$ a month on this game. Thats one more paying player walking away.

World of Warships is soon to be released on console.  It will give 'people' like the Juke a place to go.

 

I don't know much about WoWS, but from the videos I've seen it looks like something an arty player would enjoy.

 

It very much is, and in fact I had the pleasure of being an alpha tester... who also had the most games played during the alpha out of the xbox playerbase.

I don't know, who?


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.

There’s more to WOT than just Artillery..... It’s world of “tanks” after all, not world of SPGs. I’d love to see more artillery, sure, but the lack of new Arty content doesn’t impact my enjoyment of the game.

 

I know Bro, but the other play styles dont hold my interest. Who wants to play heavy tanks and hump eachother on the same corners or choke points on every map. Mediums, can be fun but dont excell in anyone area. Lights? Ruined for me with the great bush nerf and the way the changed the meta twords active scouting..  driving in circles isnt my thing. TDs.. super boring to me.

 

I wish it wasnt so, but it is.

Honestly curious why you need NEW arty.  The few I have played felt pretty much the same and it did not stoke my desire for new models to lob shells in.  

If you had every tank in the game for almost 3 years, and no new content was forth coming but nerfs and a different shot view... ask yourself how long befor your interest would wain.

Please can you inform all arty players about this!!!!! We want them all to know that WG doesn't care about them and that they should be clever and go play something else.

Well, that's a bit much. I don't really care about any of it, but I doubt you'd like it if somebody said that about any other classes. This forum just makes me mad sometimes. I'll refrain myself though before I really let it all loose.

You won't be disappointed. I've no doubt you will have read similar in the other threads but here's a quick summary: 

It isn't an op beast but it's very reliable, and fun. Very accurate gun, great pen so rarely needs prem, and earns plenty of silver as a result. Isn't very fast but it is a heavy so that is fairly standard. Armour is ok when top tier but won't stop tanks with good pen. It plays like a hybrid of a Tiger 1 and a Tiger P. However, it can sidescrape well, something the Tiger 1 and Tiger P struggle with and it gives it an edge. I run mine with rammer, optics and vents. Could swap optics for GLD if you want but i find the gun aims fast enough for me. That is personal preference though.

 

Goodnight mate.

OP, if it makes you feel any better, we aren't getting much in the way of new stuff at all for the next year at least.

I see one new line, and that's it.


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

I was addressing Arty, not every tank in the game.  Sounds like you need new Light, Med and Heavy tanks to explore.

Well they could add stuff from PC such as tier X reward tanks, personal missions, personal reserves, ability to sell consumables, increased camo customization, etc.
