It's not the arty that kills you...

Postby nikomas » Mon 20 Feb 2012 11:23

Alright, so as far as arty goes we all know it's pretty powerful, even more so in higher point matches on small matches but I just have to say this, I dont think it's overpowered at all and this is the reason...

Playing with my team, I almost always score the highest and always outscore our artillery dude simply because while the enemy team is busy cursing out the artillery barrages, the tanks and infartry are advancing trough the smoke :twisted:

What I'm saying is, combined arms is a wonderful thing ;)

If you're going to say something, you'll have to do better than that mr clever. I'm just sick of all the "Arty OP nerf nerf" threads.

I find a balanced army with each of everything to work the best, for me anyway.
I always buy either 4 MLRS or 4 Smerch and use the rest of the points for infantry, AA and some tanks. Had a 3vs3 match on Hell's Highway yesterday where maintaing a defensive position with infantry got me over 4000 kills with only 900 casualties.
My artillery got most kills. But when does it become artillery spam? I don't think having only 4 pieces of artillery makes it spam, even if they are rocket artillery.

The history of balance:
"ZOMG THE ROMANS ALL THEY DO IS SPAM LEGIONS! THEY ARE SO OP!"
"Dont fight them in the open! Avoid them and hit thier supplies!"
"Shut up Vercingetorix, you know nothing!"

"ZOMG, THE SPANISH ARE JUST SPAMMING CANNONS AND PIKES IN A MASSIVE SQUARE! OP OP OP!"
"Use battle lines and use more muskets!"
"Shut up Gustavus Adolphus, you know nothing"

"ZOMG GERMANS TANKS ARE ATTACKING OUR REAR UNITS AND OVER RUNNING OUR BETTER TANKS! RUSHING AND OP!"
"We should have used lighter and more aggressive armour tatics, we should have place more tanks together than than spreading out and..."
"Shut De Gaulle, you know nothing"

The thing is, arty isn't really op, you just need to know how to handle it, spread out, and if they dump all their points in single shot arty, rather then mrls, (you can tell this by following the arty shells back, and seeing them fire) then just charge them, and they have nothing else to defend against you.
