As being the current Map Manager, I believe I have to bring in something here.
To be fair, when looking at a map, I do not think of players who complain about too little or too much artillery, how many can go arty or anything.
I look at positions, countering artillery pieces, and general purpose of each cannon being set. I would never personally place more than 3 artillery pieces in one position, then I would rather make a new position for artillery elsewhere, and that is attacking side only.
I will always place some sort of counter-artillery for it too. But it all depends on the map in question.
I would never place more artillery-pieces, because people want more kills.
It is all about the purpose of the map.
I could however, add/remove or rearrange artillery-pieces, if it server a better purpose for the map.
For instance, breaches and bottlenecks.
If you have a specific map where you believe an artillery-piece could do a difference, or its OP and completely impossible to counter, then I would gladly look more into it.
But to be fair, I read this as a general complaint about wanting more artillery-pieces, so people who like artillery can get enough kills.
If I am wrong, then I am sorry, could you perhaps spell it in a different way for me then?
Perhaps give me a picture or 2? I heard a saying that a picture tells a better tale than a 1000 words.
Maps are not made for artillery-guys only. They should be made so that both artillery, line and skirmishers can all have fun in their way.... Cav too when possible.
When it comes to special artillery pieces... Well, they are special after all
People trolling, that is why we have admins. That people dont know how to use them, and still take them... Well, I hope you have great diplomatic skills on those newbs
My opinion, sorry to those feelings I could hurt, it is not meant to hurt anyone, just enlighten people on the opinions of the current Map Manager
