I have heard the goal is to make a line battle focussed mod witch is awsome. That why the low accuracy and high reloads without bayonets right=? And one of the biggest killers of linebattle is by far arty IMO, as it forses infantry to just sit and camp behind hills. So a big ass nerf to that would greatly help.
I dont know if it possible to even take out the cannon and replace it with howziters only and then replace the howziter model with a cannon model. As howziter is much harder to aim and have to actually hit their tagets and doesn't have the OP cannon balls doesnt bounce 100 meters after hitting the ground. Then replace the explosion particel with a dirt could and maybe nerf the damage a bit and boom you have to patriot cannon effekt with nerfed cannons
