Question : Do Chevron's effect Reload time for Artillery pieces ?

DarkLordDDarkLordD Registered Users Posts: 2,579
Hello everyone.

Well just as the title states, Do Chevron's effect Reload time for Artillery pieces ?


Canon's are somewhat slow, but very effective when hit correctly. I love them, but reload times are somewhat slow in some cases.

Do Chevron's anything for reload speed time AND accuracy ?


Thanks all !

Have a great day.

    If you hover over the missile damage stat bar with your mouse, you can see just how much it changes with chevrons.

    Great addition man, thanks a lot ! I didn;t think of that :) I will do that right away, thanks !

    Any chance if you know if accuracy is a thing too for chevrons ?

    Yes it is. But sadly there isn’t no way to check how much it increases it.

    I usually refrain from making comments like these, but this mistake was fairly consistent, so I'm just going to help you a bit:

    In English, plurals never have apostrophes in them.

    Chevrons.
    Cannons.

    Just like the word "pieces" you wrote above.

    Apostrophes are virtually only used for possessive forms. So "The chevron's effect" meaning "the effect of the chevron".

    I'm not a native speaker myself, so I know that English is a godforsaken Frankenstein language largely devoid of logic, but this particular aspect is pretty consistent.

    Good luck!

    And if you're talking about plural "chevrons" but want to comment on their effect, it would be: "The chevrons' effect..." Apparently you get to just add a single apostrophe if the word is already plural. But if it is singular, especially a proper noun, and ends in an "s" you have to add " 's " because hah, that's why. "Alexis's chevrons..."

    English is weird.

    Could be worse. You could be trying to learn Hungarian... that language is so confusing.

    Fortunately, chevrons decrease artillery calibration area and you can check it in custom battles.
    You can order artillery units to attack certain mark by holding RAlt.
    When you are doing this you'll notice that gold chevron arty has smaller target area.

    Zerkovich made a video where he tests how valuable extra chevrons are for artillery. The result was that they're not worth it at all and much better spent on infantry.

    were you referring to https://youtube.com/watch?v=osZfY4rN0S0 ???
    That is his only arty vid I could find but i can't catch the moment you are talking about

    Anyway I don't quite understand how extra chevrons could not be of value to artillery. specifically the mortar type of artillery. You are actually uncapable to hit enemy troops placed on the walls with every shot unless your mortars had some chevrons.

    Or you were talking about mp??
  • Iron_Crown#5779Iron_Crown#5779 Registered Users Posts: 1,853
    Well this is only relevant to MP, isn't it? In SP you get chevrons on all your units anyway so it's not like you consciously choose which units to level up. It's just something that happens.

    Iirc, Zerkovich demonstrates that increased accuracy has no significant impact, the normal randomness of hits is larger than the difference between a rookie unit vs. a veteran unit. Most bonuses from chevrons are to MA and MD which are completely meaningless for artillery.
