Yes. Why not?

Arty causes campy “arty safe” games.


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Seconded. After all you need to be to repeat the experiment say 20K times to ensure the results are consistent. :trollface:

You're right. I think I will be proactive and do a no wot week starting today. Problem solved. :trollface:

Voted no.

 

Whilst I agree the mechanics of artillery need a change/nerf they have their uses and have saved myself and many other tankers from death, they are also useful for breaking a stalemate on a flank where Hull down tanks are just bouncing rounds off each other. 

 

Plus taking them out would likely encourage many players to exclusively use super heavy tanks, thus flooding and breaking the MM even more with tons of heavies. 

 

They are a part of the game and make you think more about strategies and positioning on a map.

I'm not sure what clique you're talking about. The only ones I know about are those that seem to kiss up at every turn, and the one that's bitter and hate filled. But I'm the only member of the second one. I hate our one member so much that I can't stand another one getting in.

 

Don’t worry about it, I am just trolling. I can’t possibly keep track of all the nonsense on this forum, just that some people post entirely too much as I see it.

A one week test where I won’t have to worry about getting shat on by some lump who never left base, and doesn’t have LOS on me?

 

Sounds like something that’d bring people back, they can’t do that. It makes complete and perfect sense. We can’t have that, we need the rampant incompetence we’ve had for a while with are devs.

 

Should we add the 183mm HESH to the bad?

 

You know people love their deathstars (me included). But slight buff to turret armour and removal of HESH completely is fair compromise.

They are one of the root causes of lemming trains. If half map is open and other half in cover it's no surprise entire team goes to cover leading to lemming train and then leading to blowout games.

 

They are a cancer on this game in more ways than one

You get no detection warning for artillery unlike with all other classes when they are aimed at you.  Often times, you have to abandon half of the map to stay 'arty safe'.  With some of the overpowered TDs, you can at least counter them when they are spotted, relocating ect.  This is not the case with artillery, which is a bit odd for a PVP game.

I agree that the arty detecting us and we don't know it is a ridiculous change that needs to go away.

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.

No. There are folk who have explicitly stated that for one reason or another it is the main tank type that they can play.

I'd back a week long ban on Asbo, V/IV et Al tho.

One troll deserves another :P

 

I think I was trolling myself, though. I've been getting up early to go to the doctor a lot lately, and not getting a lot of sleep. I'm such a Richard to myself.


 

My dislike of +/- 1 pales in comparison to my hatred of Loaded Dice.

You get lemming trains with or without artillery in the game, and if that was the case then both teams would lemming train to the same location as both sides would have artillery.

I think it is because it is like a barn (easy to hit) but like the death star, it just s**ts on you (mostly) before dying quicker than the DS.

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.
