    Artillery Rework 2019 Edition

    Let's be serious. The goal has never been to "fix" the game, they've known for years what the players want. You can't seriously tell me at this point they don't know removing arty would be more popular than keeping it in or that a 2 tier spread would revive things. The goal is to stretch the game out as long as possible. Games tend to have a shelf life, so they've been withholding the improvements players want as long as the money keeps flowing in. As the player numbers have finally begun to really drop they're now doling out little improvements here and there, just enough they think it will get people to come back and play, where the game becomes a little "new" again. This is just another example, they drop a tiny weight on the scale and then sit back and wait to see how much it tips. See if they need to give anything more of what we want or if this is "enough" to keep people hooked for another 6 months. We won't get an ounce more than that minimum weight and they'd rather err on the side of not enough than too much. At this point they can kindly consume a plethora of dicks. It's like when I was a teenager working at a restaurant and my boss gave me a $0.10/hour raise after I gave him my two week's notice.

    Would take it just for the reduced damage from splash/non-direct hits and reduced stun duration. Especially on paper tanks (like the Standard B which I am grinding currently, which suffers badly against arty) it could potentially make a big difference. Suffering 400+ hp damage on a non-direct hit is pretty frustrating. However, one of the biggest issues with arty at the moment is tier 6 and tier 5 arty and their rate of fire, which I note hasn't been touched at all. These arties, like the Lef, the FV304, the M44 and the Grille etc. fire so damned fast and do so much damage to low tier tanks that don't have a lot of armour that it is entirely possible for one of these focusing you to kill you inside 3 minutes, with not a damned thing you can do to stop it (especially against those that have very high firing arcs). Low tiers are even worse for arty spam at the moment because of this, in my opinion.

    FTFY. Simple experiment: remove arty from one of the two EU servers for a couple of weeks. See which server people log into... The percentage of shitlords who primarily play arty is tiny. Smaller, I’m certain, than the number of players who have left the game because of, among other reasons, arty ruining the gameplay. Many pubbie tears would fall if arty was removed; “you owe me xp, etc, blah, blah, blah”. But the reality is fuck all of them would stop playing. And a heap of former players might come back (only to get infuriated by RNG and leave again).

    Hmm... for me this is just tippy toeing around a dead horse. They simply need to remove the damn stun completely and reduce the number of arty per match to just one. Seriously, their game is losing players and they are still fucking around with one of the biggest reasons why players are leaving. Just fucking delusional morons these developers.

    The biggest issue is the high dmg arty can do to you. 400-500 dmg in a tier X game, for example, is game changing. A tank with 2k hp has now reduced its total combat ability reduced by a fourth or a fifth. Add the stun to this and possibility to get tracked or module damaged, it can destroy you fighting capability. Muliply this by 3 and you have a disastrous resoult. Arty has no place in this game because of how gamebreaking it is. It should be removed. The only good thing about it is that it can counter assault tanks or punish hulldown defensive monsters. But those things should be fixed by designing the game better. Interesting to see how the stun duration works and how it comulates over repetition. It makes me wonder why they did not realize before of how broken it is and bad for the game. Anyway this game is too broken to fix they will not be able and they are clearly not capable to fix it.

    this is like irelias 5ms nerf in league sure it’s a nerf, but it literally won’t change anything the amount of situations where this nerf matters are too few this’d be like nerfing wheeled tank top speed by 1kph a qol change is more needed than a nerf, since the nerf is actually needed more regarding he ammo rather than arty since the stuns are fine but it does too much damage while making you useless unless in cqc, he does too much damage overall and nerfing it would put arty in a bearable spot again a qol change that is needed if he stays the same is stun-immunity for 2-3 seconds after using kit, this is a specific scenario but double stunning right after using medkit is such bs.. it’s a huge quality change but impacts the game very little at the same time you still take damage, and stuns but the difference is that you at least have a window the size of your aim time to get something done before you can get stunned again for using your medkit

    Meanwhile, on the Pathfinder Horizon... I'm standing at the very border of the Formorian Frontier, one more jump will take me into The Abyss. Things are starting to look pretty small from here.

    Hi! As one of the main PC-support guys in this forum, I m getting a little bit annoyed by the back and forth that's eating up everyones time, causes misunderstandings and can be easily avoided by providing basic system information right in the starting post. In case you want to buy a new PC or upgrade the existing one not sure if problems are hardware or software related or a mix of both try to solve hardware, temperature or performance problems If your system doesnt work at all either provide the name/model in case its prebuild/of the shelve or post a copy of the invoice, if its build from parts/custom, detailing the components please provide the following information in your starting post by either uploading a screenshot like this (use HWInfo32 if your not sure if you have a 32 or 64 bit operating System) or linking to the DxDiag.txt file you uploaded somewhere on the web. In case you are using the screenshot, pleases also post your monitors native resolution OR the monitors name/model. Also tell us what power supply (PSU) you are using - if not sure open your case and take a photo of the sticker with all the numbers (readable pls) and upload it somewhere. And of cause the budget and your location play an important role, if you plan to spend money. If you have temperature issues please also add the temperatures. Screenshots of the GPUz sensor screen set to "MAX" (left click between sensor name and histogramm) for your graphic card and the tempsensors/values provided by HWInfo for your CPU after you put some load on the system. The name and model of your computer case ( or at least big tower or small cube), CPU cooler and the exact GPU brand/model (for example "Zotac GeForce GTX 970 AMP! Extreme") will also help a great deal. In case of performance issues pls first make sure you dont have a temperature problem (modern hardware will often throttle back in that case) and your drivers are up to date. If your temps are ok pleases provide the following infos regarding your ingame settings: - resolution, old or new render, Antialiasing settings ... or just post/link a screenshot like this if not sure. thx Folterknecht edit: List of topics already covered here: Boot Failure Troubleshooting Flowchart by Morris Rosenthal How to apply thermal paste Samsung Releases Second 840 EVO Performance Fix How to clean a Laptop Deliding and lapping a CPU Does RAM speed influence FPS in WoT?
