So I jumped on last night for a few rounds and I noticed when playing Grain Elevator there was a constant barrage of arty in the Grain Elevator Building at the beginning of the match. I don't remember this barrage in the beta, or on release. Is this new?

Yeah, I don't like how arty is something you use to spam and get kills in RO2, rather than in RO1, where you used it as tactical tool

no it wasent. Maybe i is there now to make it harder to shoot from the 4th or 5th floor down.

Never noticed it until I played FF on it the other day, and this is the exact conclusion I came to. It's either a bug or a poor attempt at map balance.

I remember when it first came out on the beta and didn't have the artillery, Axis didn't have a chance. The arty doesn't actually do much damage but it works on the 'psychological' level and prevents Allies from raining death from the higher floors.

Plus now all the holes in the walls and smoke look better too. Too bad real destruction isn't in the game.

You know what I noticed while playing Grain Elevator?

Since I played the map a dozen times now on both sides I can't figure out 1 thing. When the map starts on German side, everyone runs for the Gate House from the spawn and is perfectly visible to the Russians on the windows of Grain Elevator, that happens wave after wave. However, whenever I choose to play as a Russian on that map I take my Mosin, get on the 2nd floor window which has a perfect line of sight towards the German spawn and the area through which I (and many more) allways run to reach the Gate House but somehow I NEVER see anyone running. It's as if the Germans have a cloaking device.

Now that I think of it. I never got shot from any of those windows while running for the Gatehouse as a German either...something is terribly wrong here.

Its really quite hard to shoot the Nazis from the spawn when your in the elevator, you are at a bad angle and they have a short crossing. Its better being up there once they enter the courtyard. Its annoying when the Nazis keep climbing up the ladder though.
