All premiums are set up to be middle of their tier, not quite as weak as a base model, and not as strong as the fully upgraded.

The SU-152, T-25AT, and Jagdpanther all have inferior weapons, armor, and mobility at the same tier.
I thought you might have some personal experience to share how the SU-122-44 play vs the other tier 8 premium heavies/TDs.

Which is what we were always told was supposed the be the case.

There are arguments on the forums right now that, when in capable hands, the 122-44 is actually OP if used correctly.

Gosh, I sure hope so... but I'm at work, and still haven't played it.

Something in me told me to buy Gold for premium again, and in that there was the deal for 2500 gold, the 122-44, and a slot... still not sure I was thinking straight.

No Dave, I just had a vision of you being shouted at by some 15 year old cockney. We're not all loud and obnoxious over here.

Now, if by installing those you got a camaflage bonus, AND everyone else had to look at that it might be worth it.

Yes, its frustrating. My accuracy seems to have improved, but now I rarely get an actual damaging shot without shooting gold. Most of my arty score is now in supporting damage, not kills.

I think something had to be done though, as it's refreshing to only see one or two arty per team. I've noticed that rounds tend to last a bit longer this way.

I think that arty should be in a support role...it should I would agree that the shots land on target more, and I think the hard damage (being on the end that gets hit) still seems to be there, but perhaps they are shooting more gold ammo.

I still really think that the best games are the ones with little to no arty....it opens up areas of approach.

I had a game the other day on stepps...wide open map with zero arty....it was an encounter battle. You all know the drill, some go to the flag and duke it out, others go to the other side and play peek-a-boom around the rocks. I took off and sat right smak dab in the center in a little hull down depression. Our side lost the battle of the rocks and was on its way to take the flag....right across the middle. All had battle damage and I was able to hold them off with a single JGPanther and our team got the win.

I was spotted, but in the hull down area shots just bounced off the top armor. Two memebers of my team came up to protect my flanks and we held them off.

We had positions in the wide open....and we sat there in hull down depressions and took our shots and won the game.....something that could not be done with arty on the map.

It was classic tank on tank battle, we did not move execpt to gain a better postiton to fire from.

Bottom line is that arty forces players to hug houses, bolders and not exploite the features of the entire map and game. I really think that wargaming has finally seen this and are intrested in having a game where the teamwork and skill of the players wins the battle not just who has the best arty players on the team.

I am more happy with the game, I also like that the arty is a little more thin skinned...there is a reason they are far behind the lines....it had a motor and tracks to move easy ie run away....not to play TD.
