Is there any ‘art in ‘Art’illery?
So here’s the deal guys and gals. The title of this post poses a very interesting question. “Is there any ‘art’ in artillery?”
Now trust me, I have been around long enough to know how a lot of players feel about Artillery. Let’s be honest here, there are few things that will send such brothers in arms as Warren and our very own Commander in Chief (Starcelt) into fits of rage quicker than their being hit by ‘that damn arty!’ LOL
And yes we all hate Arty at times don’t we? But do they get a rough deal? Or are they truly the bane of everyone’s tanking enjoyment? After all, isn’t it true that most of us would have experienced at least one time when we have been slugging it out with an enemy tank and would have been killed had it not been for the timely intervention of a well aimed Artillery shell?
And as someone who likes to roll out an Artillery tank every now and then, I do my best to support my platoon or team members by either keeping the enemy back – in scenarios such as death valley – or by damaging or killing tanks which are attacking platoon or team mates. Although I would be the first to admit that just how much of an art my Artillery playing is – at any given time – really is directly dependant on a) the map we are playing and b) how much I have been playing that particular Arty.
But I still can’t help wondering if indeed ‘Arty’ does get an unfair rap when it comes to other players? So that forms the basis of my questions to you today and I am inviting you to comment and give your opinion. (Just write your opinion in the ‘Leave A Reply’ box below).
What do you think? Is there any ‘art’ in ‘Art’illery? Do they serve a positive purpose in the game or should they be scrapped? Should there be a limit to how many Arty are allowed in any one game?

Oh and by the way, the picture (above right) is of the German G.W. E 100. A tier 10 Artillery tank.
And if you want to see it being played on the Xbox console you can check it out here – which is taken from Detro D’s YouTube channel – all credits go to him!
(But I would warn you that it is an old video. Be real careful trying to find the secret island since the recent updates!)
