I recently came back to the game (left because of 3-5-7 and artillery) and the mm seems to be a lot better now. However, the changes to artillery seem to have backfired?
Before I left I heard they were changing artillery to be less punishing but now I feel like it’s even worse. 3 arty games leave you with two decisions: camp in arty safe positions and just accept the fact that you’re probably not going to have a huge impact or play aggro positions and get shot by arty for 3 min before they kill you.
Now the common consensus before the arty changes was that a spall liner was normally not worth. However now that I get shot by arty every minute I feel like it might be worth running one.
I’ve introduced my friend to the game and we’re on tier 7 heavies but when we get consecutive games of 2/3 arty per team that’s usually when we end our night since the game is almost unplayable unless you’re okay with being farmed by clickers. He also doesn’t have a lot of credits so purchasinng a spall liner would be spending about 2/3 of his savings.
