Well im sure most good players are use to kiting enemy stacks with their arty. does not make them over powers when played with some skill. You have to know how to adjust to counter Arty as will most other units as well. i like to think im a good player with my arty but i have been schooled by some others.
"There are only two types of aircraft — fighters and targets." — Doyle 'Wahoo' Nicholson, USMC.
Depends on at least 3 factors:
- Do both artis have equal range? If your range is shorter, yours can't shoot of course.
- Do you have fire control settings?
- Are other hostile troops closer? Your arti will shoot at closest target, if you do not have 'Return fire' activated.
- Or if your arti is moving, it will not return fire until it stopped. 'Aggressive' stance can help with that.
Also it might take a while, before your arti returns fire, always a little delay if you do not command manually.
