Though anecdotally it would appear that arty is fairly popular on the RU server. Even if it's mostly in high-tier and might be MM purge games.

I personally don't complain about overpowered arty because of RNG and people who sit motionless without hard cover. They're also not quite as annoying as snipers in most other games, which tend to not be handicapped as much as your average SPG is once it becomes a close-combat scenario. (something something Deagle AWP bunnyhopping freak something something)

I agree. I actually find the invisible, hard hitting soviet TDs more of a problem than arty.

Try playing a round of Prokhorovka on a Tier 11/12 where there are 4 tier 8 arty on each side. It's brutal. One shots everywhere!

The problem about tier 10 is that it's WAY less forgiving than tier 5, 6, or even 8. Yes, if you somehow get your team to do a blitz attack on Prokohrovka your chances to win will go up, but if one little thing goes wrong (like your arty looking the wrong way when you're attacking), the attack may easily get destroyed by a couple of T110s or Obj. 268s hiding at the other end of the map. There is no such thing as "wining it" at t10 if you want to win.

On a related note, today's random thought of the day:

In a peekaboo game, staying out of cover to get in "just one more shot" often results in death. I tried not to do that today and, judging by the tracers going past me, not being brave saved my butt a couple of times. On the second occasion, I backed up instead of staying forward and narrowly avoided getting Grilled.

My StuG III says hi.

I may have to look into Soviet TDs in the future. The high tier German TDs might be fun to play, but they lack the camouflage for those invisible sneak attacks I get with the StuG.

Had to coordinate three artillery and a StuG in defending base (all other members of the team got slaughtered in center and town) as I singlehandedly assaulted the valley and capped for victory. Got Top Gun and Sniper on the side too.

I see tier 9 thru 12 regularly when I play my tier 9s and 10s... Also will not be in game much anymore..... hopefully I can play on Sunday or Saturday night. I won't be able to play weekdays anymore when I start my new job. Not that it matters cuz no one ever plats anymore. Well see you when I see you I guess.

No, it's that because you keep on doing high-tiers, no one platoons with you. Only the two Endlesses/Ute are able to platoon with you with regularity as a result.

Yeah, true, but I kinda lost a lot of drive to play after beta. Besides, it can't really be a trophy tank when its like one of the two Heavies that I have, haha...

Because of the vagaries of the games that I've been playing, despite the American event bonus, I'm losing money or barely breaking even with the T32 while turning a slight profit with the M103.

Slight.

Without a premium account I'd be hosed.

Also... I could play for a bit longer, but it's time to cash out of this casino today.

Going into the valley by yourself with no support looked painful. Would've been even more painful if everybody in the valley didn't shoot HE.

We should platoon sometimes.

LOL, Q, look at my post toward the top of this page, which should look oddly-familiar.
