Is it only me or does it feel like arty wasn't really nerfed? Trying to play some 279e to share the toxicity and every damn shot is like 500.
Also fv4005 sniped my cupola from 400m and highrolled. What's with my 279e and shitbarns killing it

@Jesse_the_Scout I think the HE mechanics changes mean thick unsloped armor tanks got buffed but sloped armor tanks got a nerf.

Arty HE mechanics were not changed, FWIW (for damage+pen calculations, anyways). Arty was nerfed in the sense that it requires more than a pulse and one brain cell to play these days. My current theory is that it was nerfed enough that all the brain-dead arty mains stopped playing the game, so it feels like it wasn't nerfed because the only arty players left are the ones who are actually decent and know what they're doing in the game.
Besides, sloped armor didn't get nerfed against HE at all, IIRC - what did get nerfed is the calculation using the thinnest armor within the splash radius of that sloped armor (which is why you don't get 700+ splashes with 183mm HESH consistently anymore).
Sloped armor has always been weaker to non-penetrating HE than thiccboi flat sides, but now that the damage roll is based directly on where you hit, slab armor is far superior because you can't splash engine decks or hull roofs to bypass it anymore.
@PlanetaryGenocide you are correct. I may also have been getting some bad rng. My days recently oscilate between 75% wr and 45% so it swings massively
