Default Spot Enemy Arty

We can spot an enemy soldier or tank by pressing a button, so I thought it might be useful to also be able to spot arty in the same way - you point the middle of the screen where it is falling, and press that button, to place an arty marker on the map, to warm your teammates.

Yeah, you can call out the arty position on mic or in chat, but you can also do this for spotting enemy soldiers and tanks. The game gives us a button function for it, so why not for arty?. It might just save some lives if they can see it on the map.

Great Idea I often want to warn others of arty falling and its location so team mates can re-route approaches. Another variation of this if the Commander is told where arty is falling, he should be able to mark it on his map like he would a "Move Over there" marker so all players can see it.

I think a button to make your team mates less stupid and not runing inside an obvious falling arty would be better. Artys are really obvious, big explosions, big sound.. no really you think it needs more for people to not run in? If they can not realize that there is an arty falling in front of them you think adding a marker for ennemy arty will ssave them?...... really...

Why does 'everything' need to be spotted? Fog Of War, anyone? A big clue is those loud explosions coming from....over there, don't go there.


There are so many 'tells' already in this game what's the point anymore if we keep adding more and more?
