Seriously...arty has to go.  The game is about TANKS.  I've had it with trying to play smart and set up shots on other tanks, only to get blasted by an M40/M43.  It SUCKS.  I'd bet 90% of players feel the same way. 

 

And please...no snarky "play arty safe" comments.  That's [edited].  Might as well just hide next to rock until arty is destroyed.

 

Rant complete. Sigh...

Play extra arty safe when there are more than one arty on the reds. One arty you can play a little more aggressively. Try it...arty is going no where. If WG banished arty they’d be turning their back on players who love arty. Player numbers are low enough as is. Adapt and overcome my friend.

The battle has to played a bit differently when arty is in the game and further you go in the tiers more damage arty does, but in less it shoots.   If you hit from time to time, then it's quite normal, but if you get hit repeated in different battles then it's more on your side.   Typical reasons why you get hit are: You stay still when you are detected,  you repeat same movement pattern, you are the first non light tank visible to arty,  you are the only tank that arty can shoot.   You also play arty so you know where arty can shoot so you must have an idea how artillery works.  Now, you just use that information and ask yourself would you shoot you if you were an enemy arty player and why would you take a shot, what are you doing wrong other than being unlucky or too close to tank that stays still.

 

Why did that tank got shot?

That light tank got shot because the arty player went for the cheap easy kill when he should have dropped it on the heavy to the right of him.  He makes the choice before that heavy starts to slowly move.  Still, your point is that he was one of two not moving.  The counter point to that is stopping and aiming your shot is normally better than shooting on the move.  And every one of those tanks was susceptible, moving or not, so they should have hid in the back like heavies are supposed to do

You’re not alone, we’ve all cursed arty at one time or another. You just need to be honest with yourself and look at what you could’ve done differently in that match. Move on and learn from it. Honestly, arty doesn’t bother me anymore. Sure they can become a hindrance to what you want to do, but that’s part of the challenge of this game.

The main purpose for Gif is to show that light got shot because it was still in the primary target area.  Now the real reason why I changed the target from lead heavy to fast light is visible in map, but figuring it out requires tactical eye and my experience is that arty haters usually don't have it. ;)

Wow.... I hope the OP doesn’t find out that many of the “tanks” in game were also pressed into service(in real life) to be long range artillery with indirect fire.

Wow that is some serious skill right there. Did you notice how gracefully he moved the crosshair an inch up and a bit to the left, aiming at unsuspecting enemies? Is that a modded controller you're using? You totally outplayed that light tank. HAHAHAHHAHAHA!

They’ll never ref or get rid of Arty.  The game is on its last legs.  Just look at the player population.
