Winning games and carrying the team isn't a bad strategy.

How dare the Heavy move forward and play the game, he should sit behind a mountain the entire game and not contribute the entire time in order to be arty safe. Yeah, what a great idea.

 

It's the only option. Sadly its also very effective.

Playing arty gets boring and is a gamble. You can fully aim all you want but the accuracy is so off that they tend to miss a lot. Yes they have good games, like any other machine, but it’s not like they are pin point accurate all the time. Throw crap accuracy with long reloads and I think they are fine.

For all the gate people give them. I’m sure they have been helped by arty plenty of times and been glad they were there

That cover would have rendered him useless until the enemies capped his base.  You're making a bogus point.

 

So you refuse to take cover and wonder why Arty is targeting you. 

 

Nothing bogus about that

He spawned in a wide open space, there's no way to avoid that unless he was in a better tank that didn't go 20. Try avoiding artillery in a Maus yourself.

 

He drove passed cover at the beginning of the vid and when he got spotted there's another cover.

Sad thing about this post is no matter what you do. You're "always" camping to this guy which is pathetic. Arty id a bad mechanic and needs to be either removed or major change. Quit using arty to say you need to stop being aggressive 

 

I never said anything about camping , i said use proper cover. 

 

Which he didn't use in this video and he got hit by Arty.

I see, so it's artillery's fault that your mouse got hit in the middle of the field when it drove  straight line while it was detected.  :facepalm:    How far did you get before your mouse was shot full of mouse holes?

 

People rather make excuses than admit it's their fault.

I agree with the "No Deathstar and no WT E100" sentiment if you are going to get rid of an entire class of tanks.

 

Mainly because on PC, these tanks were actually removed from the possibility of being earned (The WT E100 being removed from the game entirely) because they were so OP compared to the other tanks in the game.

 

Artillery is a part of the game. Learn to deal with them, or play them yourself.

Why do you think it is good if heavies are reduced to taking cover in their own spawn and not leaving it?

Voted no. Arty is a pain but every time I’ve been killed it was always my fault not their skill

The only tier 9 arty that loads quickly enough to prevent you from leaving the spawn is the BC 155. I dont even know of any tier 8's that can load faster than that. I know how slow the Maus is. The fact that you were still in the base by the time something spotted you is the fault of one or both of two things.

 

A) You were sitting in the base doing nothing waiting for something to spot you to prove a point. 

B) Your team failed and let a light or medium through that spotted you while you were trying to snipe from your base. 

 

Im not sure why you were stuck in your base for so long to the point where you were spotted.

 

Judging from the video, the enemy arty was a T92, which would give you PLENTY of time to move to a safe position without getting spotted. 

 

Instead of sitting in the base and trying to snipe the valley, you should have been trying to go to the north, or somewhere other than just sitting out in the open.

T92 loads every minute or so, so using that game was a bad example.

He wasn't inside his base, he was pushing towards enemy territory to which where the enemy countered,  by using medium  speed and spot enemies to what kind of tanks are coming towards that flank.

 

Would it be nice for  WG to add more cover, i agree. There not enough.

Proper cover? another saying for "stay arta safe" Say that with 3 arty on the red team. No such thing as arty safe. Slower tanks are going to be dumped on because they are slow. Are you going to say the same thing when it comes to maps like Mali and Muro? of course you are.

T92 is like 40 sec reload. 

 

Most Arty higher Tiers have  slow reload

Oh I know, I didnt think it was that low though...thought it was around 60 seconds or so. I know the BatChat's initial load is 64 or something like that, but only because its an autoloader.

Not me in the clip but ok.  Secondly the Maus drove off the base from the start of the game but could not leave the general spawn area in time to avoid artillery.  I make the scouting run most of the time on Artic Region.  Tanks that go under 30km/hr simply can't make it out of their spawn in time.

Oh my god yes. Even if it's 3 days midweek. If people can take away my two up or two down MM, I should be able to be arty free for a bit.
