Oh Christ the B4

I cannot stand the agonizing experience of the B4 any more. I stopped playing the game seriously a while ago due to "high Elo" gameplay just being Metaspams and tactical blobs but now I cant even go into a 4v4 without some Russian guy building 3 B4's and stalemating the front instantly. The suppression radius is insane, and if you want to crawl through it I will 100% guarantee the next one lands on your head. Its range veteran bonus means nowhere is safe, I had sturms repairing a KT in MY BASE get NUKED. Maybe it would not be so bad if it didn't lock everyone in place, I don't play COH2 to play red light green light with a B4. At least if didn't cover direct strikes or your random teammates happened to pick non-direct strike commanders you could play around rocket arty and heavy arty by remaining mobile and dodging through the barrages, since the B4 essentially renders you immobile the only solution is to die, that's it you just die. BOOM dead.

TLDR: Remove the suppression. WE as a community don't want it
(agree with me)

possible fixes: No suppression (EZ)

CoH2 is better with more suppression and less blobs imo.

All BARRAGE arty should have supression and a longer cooldown. The impact of arty can then be as definitive as it was IRL without relying solely on RNG wipes.

disagree.

B4 are not that good because its mid aoe is only 0.05 that mean it damage if not direct hit is 60 that didn't even kill 1 man.

after so many complaints about the new b4 I tried it myself for a few teamgames. I found it underwelming.
My recommendation, if you think it es great: play it yourself (usually my recommendation....)

Get Vision, (firing into the fog of war gives you a -30% penalty) then pop For Mother Russia and watch as your B4 lands almost every single time

The B-4, as with all soviet artillery, must be spammed to be good. a lot of B-4s shall strike down with great vengeance and furious anger on anyone who might harm the vet 0 conscript squad
