Wow, I expected many more votes for "No." I guess I underestimated the number of arty-triggered players. I play a few games per day sans arty. I imagine everyone does. A weekend like the OP suggests would not introduce something new. Arty-free matches already exist on a regular basis.

 

If I get wiped out by Arty, I almost always get at least a few games with no Arty. There could be some MM element to it as well.

Voted no. There are gamers out there who can only play arty due to injuries or disabilities. No way should they be robbed of a weeks worth of tanking. 

Also, arty is fine as it is.

I'd like to see it. If nothing else just to cause discord and strife. I like a little chaos. Chaos forces people out of their comfort zones. 

 

In this case, it'll be controlled chaos. For a limited time only.

 

Do it.

I voted no.  Arty is easy to eliminate and arty kills me the least of any class and it's by a wide margin. I'm very good at doing the arty dance once spotted so arty very rarely focuses on me.  As a result, I do not have an issue with artillery being in the game as I am effectively able to avoid artillery. 

 

Before anyone comes back with "try it in a heavy on Prok" 70% of my battles are in heavies and mediums.  Still no issues.  In my opinion/experience the camping heavies or slow to deploy heavies are the ones that get wrecked the most.  Once spotted you have to believe that arty will focus fire you and you need to be proactive and act accordingly.  By the way, that doesn't mean hiding and being ineffective.

 

Edit:  If you dig in my past regarding posts you will see that Prok and Steppes are my favorite maps.  Counter intuitive for someone with 39% of games played in heavies.  I just know how to avoid them without camping.

No. I am grinding all the arty lines to finish getting all my tier 10's. After I get all my tier 10's you ban them forever!

I'm voting no for the sake that it would both significantly alter the gameplay and prevent people who do mostly enjoy arty from playing for a week. In comparison, while the +1/-1 MM test shook things up the core gameplay was still mostly the same and people could still play any tanks that they enjoy for its duration.

 

+1. This. I voted no because of the duration driving players away. It would be interesting to have an arty free weekend to see how it changes the game. However I do think that arty offers something as a support class, even though I don't enjoy playing arty myself. 

 

I don't think that excluding any class of tank for a week is fair or positive, but a shorter trial could prove interesting. I wonder if it might even change the minds of some players with a polarising opposition to arty if it were missing.

Nice attitude you have there. Was referring to folk with physical disabilities and since arty is already here I can't see it as dictating to anyone, just being inclusive.

I dunno, cookie clicker is a fine game for those types as well as those who can't possibly see an issue with it as a mechanics.

 

It's even better than arty in WoT because after you get enough things you can play it without actually clicking at all, so it's no issue for those with arthritis as well. :popcorn:

Indeed, if that’s what they want to play. If it’s arty, it’s arty. Not for us to decide.

 

Imo there are a lot more clicker-worthy players driving other tanks than arty on the battlefield.

I do not know what tank that is referring to.

All I'm saying is there are multitudes of either individual tanks or select tanks that people have anger issues with.

 

I think that's another term for the forum.

Same reason why ignorant players like your self shouldn't have a voice on how others play their game.

 

Maybe you're disability is not learning how to adopt to Arty after 50k games.

Unlike the +1/-1 event last week which altered an aspect of the game that we had no control over, blocking a tank class would be a poor decision as it would deny people the opportunity to grind the tanks they are working on.
I'd be more interested in the stun mechanic being implemented for a week as opposed to removing arty all-together.

Hi Its a no for me as a arty user. My reason arty can change a game in one shot  and yes I've been oneshotted/shotguned   plenty of times its part of the game

I came to terms with that a long time ago.:teethhappy:
