I've been trying to do some arty missions. For the life of me, I can't see the appeal of this class. There is literally zero skill involved. Some games I nail light tanks with bullshit across the map snap shots, some games I cant hit jack shit or fuck all no matter how I aim. I have no influence over games, all I do is piss people off. The only real "skill" I use is map awareness and I developed my map awareness by playing actual tanks. I look at the map and move away from collapsing flanks. It confuses the shit out of a lot of players. Friendly arty can't understand how I am still alive and enemy tanks who reach the base can't find me because I moved 500 meters. I don't even think counterbattery is a real threat to artillery, in 33 games I have been shot at blind by arty once. This class is the godforsaken skill crawl space of world of tanks and anyone who likes to play it is an oxygen thief.

@ZXrageThat is expecting a lot out of your average arty player. Next you're going to do something even crazier, like ask them to breath through their noses, or chew gum and walk at the same time.
That thing about being right on top to see tracers is just fucked. Most of the time no one indicates they have been hit or from where so you need to scan the likely spots. Just staring at a likely spot hoping that someone shoots on your reload is another level of the WG embrace of random.
Arty missions are a Lovecraftian nightmare of dread and hopelessness.
