Status Report: Artillery Rebalance Details
Russian players met with Storm in the Stalin Line museum (Belarus) to celebrate the Russian Tanker Day. There, Storm announced some of the things that will be tested for the artillery rebalance. Unsurprisingly, many are copied from Armored Warfare. These rebalance features include:
- Turning artillery into a debuff class by seriously decreasing its damage, but giving it the ability to suppress crew (reduce the crew effectiveness) while increasing its accuracy. This suppression will be rewarded by XP.
- Illumination shells for artillery (spotting in certain area)
- Changing the point of view to the one the "arty mod" (Battle Assistant) and Armored Warfare use
- Artillery warning (for players who are being fired on by arty)
This is not definitive but will be tested.
