I would like to recommend some reading to all of the WGCB staff. Its a little fable called "The goose that laid the golden egg".

"I'm the dandy highway man that your too scared to mention

I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention"

Constructive criticism - just watched one absolutely destroy a choke point on a map with a constant barrage of shells. I wondered what the heck was happening. I'm sure Red wondered what the heck was happening too as the constant rain of shells fell down upon them.

 

It didn't do a huge amount of damage as such, but the impact on that choke point corner lead to Green winning an easy victory.

 

This looks on the face of it like a terrible decision, and a real spit in the face of the playerbase who have been asking politely for many things other than this.

This mechanic is by far the worst thing you've ever added to the game. You should have floated this idea with the playerbase first, got the inevitable reaction, and shelved it. 

 

The worst thing is that if it proves to be as OPAF we'll be stuck with it because "We don't like to nerf people's favourite tanks (except when we do).".

I'll give my impression when I play later today.  I'm personally biased already against Arty.  I'm working stage 5 of the sharpshooter contract atm.  Was gonna run a bunch of t8 stuff for the high caliber requirement.  If it's as toxic as your review seems to make it seem I might not bother and/or quit.  What a stupid idea wg.  I'm hoping for nothing but city maps.

@Rai

Tbh ANYTHING regarding arty focused gameplay is a STEP BACK in the wrong direction.

Not only will this cater to players who just sit in one place ALL time and click an opponent 100's of meters away 

Just WHY? :facepalm:

I have a question on the shot grouping. 

If you can't be bothered to use it as Carpet Bombing Artillery and fire all shots in Barrage mode without moving do they all spread or all hit the same place? Is there any dispersion within the 4 rounds that means the last shot fired is less likely to hit where aimed then the first shot. Is it just a large calibre autocannon?

With all due respect Rai, somebody you work with is seriously out to lunch. It's almost as if you folks don't really play your own game. 

As for constructive feedback, it's hard to be constructive towards WGCB when nobody really seems to listen to your playerbase, and treat us in a constructive manner.

You want positivity on these forums, yet knowing that artillery is one of the biggest causes for toxicity in this game, and now WGCB goes and poisons an already toxic well.

We ask for the bugs, and problems in the game to be fixed, and if you guys are working on them, to at least have some respect for your customers and at the very least reassure us that you're working on it. We ask this of you constantly, and as always not a word. WGCB isn't exactly in charge of nuclear secrets, but judging by your true lack of communication, you'd think ya were.

 

100% agree. Arty is the one tank that needs to be balanced but this is going to far. Rai and the group of WGCB, you need to listen to you player base because if you don't you will lose it. This premium tank is a mistake a big mistake. Get ready for the negative feedback and all the fighting. Not just in the forums but on social media........GOOD JOB

I'm just going to apologize up front to everyone who is upset by this, but I think it is a great idea. A lot of ppl have been wanting a premium arty for a while. This new mechanic is interesting. I don't see this as a total game-breaker like some are saying. But that was going to happen regardless because ppl are so sensitive about arty (yet drive around in HESHstars lol.) So I am looking forward to this premium and plan on buying one.

Another bad decision, this is another cash grab with the sticker price. I think I’ll stay out of tiers 7-10 for a few days till scum bags get their clicking done.

They all spread with each round getting a larger dispersion area. I.E. The first shot is the most accurate, the last is the least accurate. While it is a 155mm gun,  the rounds only have 380 alpha on the standard rounds or 320 alpha on the premium rounds.

Hello,

 

Do please leave constructive feedback related to the tank such as performance or play style, rather than to post unnecessary comments or attacks not related to the vehicle itself. -Thank you.

 

"Performance"

"Play style" 

...

 

But I have to be contructive ... So my feedback is, Arty players should have their own lobby!

I'm just trying to be open-minded here and I think it is pretty cool. I don't see how this makes the tank wipe out the battle field. It will be good for clearing out enemy cappers and shot-gunning. But chances are you aren't landing all 4 shots, so I am not sure what the negativity is about. It's a new element to the game/tank, which is a good thing. It's nice to have something different. (next do Swedish meds with hydraulic suspension:trollface:)

So blind firing other Arty based on tracers is a good enough affair.  Whoever has this prem arty on their team has a huge advantage.
