Just wanted to make a few points…
I’m kinda sad to see arty good in armored warfare, its my favorite class to play. hopefully they bring it back at some point
the removal of arty is a good decision they can do soo much more with the maps without needing to take in to account arty lines of fire and things. it was just a seriously annoying feature that was only really good for blowing off era armor but the artys just focus each other down for the entire game it was a useless gameplay mechanic.
THANK YOU DK! Its about time someone said it. Everywhere I read its either joyous celebration calling for artys complete removal or its the world is ending because they cant pkay arty. Finally someone points out that we only have a small paragraph to go on so people are kind of jumping the gun or putting the cart before the horse on this one. Im with you, lets take the wait and see approach. See ya in AW!
Double video woo :D
Like all forms of xenomorphs arty needs to be purged.
I am fine with arty going. I like my PZH 2000 but as a Direct Fire TD, I don’t see the point of that so really either keep it as is ( with changes ) or just remove it.
I love my arty…. Global Operation or any desert pvp is an arty friendly environment….
Well I always believed what AW did wit arty was right on target, instead of a one kill aka WoT, they made it death by a thousand cut’s but only if you were dumb enough to be out in the open for any length of time, basically what I’m getting at is I never had any issues with arty in PvP and did enjoy playing with it now n then, will I miss it, sure, will it kill the game for me, no but wouldn’t jump for joy if it came back, but I do feel for the players that love it and the possibility that there could be a loss of some of those players. Just my two cents.
Just remove the AI Bot Arty. That’s what people hate. When people rage at Arty what are the raging at, the Bot AI Arty.
I personally like playing the arty once in awhile and only in PVE. Don’t play much PVP so I wouldn’t know in there mode. I know as a player of MBT’s, LT’s, AFV’s and TD’s the AI arty can be a pain in the butt. It seems that once it targets you, it will keep shooting you. I hated that. I will wait and see what happens in 0.19 and Balance 2.0. I will still love the game either way.
I hope this update will bring more players.. I would play the game a lot if there were more players…
lol if there was a way to keep arty in its current form u have got to be kidding – the changes currently know (less those being made to arty) would have no Impact on ARTY the changes to ARTY are for changes sake & to appease “Clicker Haters” nothing more nothing less ! LOL the argument 14 vs 14 means the teams are still EQUAL what is the issue that argument is redundant.
I’ll be missing bot arty like a toothache in PVE, but other than that I enjoyed playing it. And I have cone to appreciate good arty players as an effective antidote against camping MBT players. It really adds to the dynamic of the game in my view.
They announced that damage will scale with gun caliber. So indirect fire artillery would become a high damage dealer by that logic. Going that route would make AW arty a WoT clone.
For game balance, they couldn’t keep SPGs as indirect fire weapons… They either had to remove it, or convert it into a direct fire weapon in order to quiet the arty haters.
What i’d like to see about arty. No counter arty ping on the map, you have to trace them. AI arty removed. Arty has much more DMG and SPLASH DMG which fixes to long aim time and reload.
One of my first games I played I was in Arty, I hung by a group of players and laid smoke, hit their arty, helped flush out the enemy players it was good fun. But the challenges noted https://aw.my.com/us/news/general/balance-20-progression-changes with “Not only was it difficult to balance around, but it had real impacts on our ability to create maps as well. Each map we made, whether in PvP or PvE, had to take into account Arty firing lines.” I can understand them removing it from the game. Maybe they’ll bring it back at somepoint or have a spin off game that utilizes it (a modern scifi AW with mechs, arty, combat drones, etc. could be a damn fun game) but with all the changes I understand their decision to remove it. Just like lumping LTs and TDs into basically the same category of Crap armor but big gun and seperating lightly armored recon vehicles from those heavily armored beasts on the russian/soviet line.
See a lot of people commenting that arty is removed/changed because of haters. The main reason is that only 6% of the player base usually played it, My.com and OE won`t invest money in a vehicle class that brings no benefits to the game or to their pockets.
the devs of this game are so out of touch with their player base its not funny , its become a joke of insider wants and crys , abusive staff , abusive moderators and absolutely NO communication with its player base , the NA server is a wasteland with an average population of less than 100 people per night , when you ask , your banned from forums for inciting unrest , do yourself a favor and don’t bother downloading this in any form , its World of Tanks 2.NO at best
All this is arguing crap….. They should have just removed arty from PVP….. Period. That is really the ONLY complaints about arty. So, this decision was the worst of them all….. The massive frontal MBT nerfs was the next. Yes, we understood we needed the weakspots to be slightly larger, but not massive, like lower glacier, etc. And as to PVE, yes, if you had no arty teammate, then there should have been no Bot arty, or at most just one. But if you have a teammate arty, then there should be just one AI arty, your teammate can take care of it, and it doesn’t really ever bother you. These were the WISE decisions….. yet clearly AW is now full of idiots! It just utterly astounds me that they thought “removal” was the best solution. Just astounding…. Such shear stupidity. And as to map development as a complaint for removing arty….. Well, once they made Leviathan, they now know how to make an arty compliant map, it’s EASY now, and it’s even more easy because they are wanting to make more open and bigger maps. As to resources…. They didn’t have to do crap, they have an arty line now, so they just make it one line (like they are doing anyway) and then forget about it. No “resources” required for arty. So, this all is utter stupidity!!! I’m SO angry!!!
