Why should artillery be removed from world of tanks?

1. Artillery promotes camping. In order to play artillery you must camp. In the current state of the game, a number of players have started using camping as their main strategy. Nobody like campers. No one will.

2. Artillery provides an unfair advantage. As an Artillery u are given free range of the map and are able to shoot on average 90% of the map. Due the the fact that artillery camps in the back of the map, they are not shot at until the game is almost to an end. This allows artillery players to rack up damage and annoy the enemy team without even being able to be shot back. Not only is artillery able to deal massive amounts of damage, on top of that Wargaming thought it a great idea to cause the shells to Stun surrounding targets. Basically even if an artillery misses (which they shouldn't because they are never under any pressure) they can still be extremely effective in the outcome of the battle. Not only does artillery deal massive damage they alse break their targets tracks majority of the time. Which allows the enemy team to unload on this target who is completely helpless in a situation that they have no control over. In a skill based game, players should always be impactful in the battle. Now I know what your thinking "just use a repair kit" and that a great idea! but, once you use the repair kit, you must wait 60 seconds to use it again. majority of the time artillery is shooting you they break your tyracks. If you use a repair kit, 50% of the time your tracks are broken instantaneously by the artillery once again, leaving you helpless once more.

3. Artillery is ready at the start of the game. I cannot count the number of time that i have been shot within the first 20 secs of the game (without being spotted) by artillery. 

4. They don't miss. If an artillery were to miss its target is doesn't really miss. The shell will still deal damage even if you didn't hit your target. How can this be fair? not only does artillery have a massive advantage when is comes to lining up their shots, but even if they miss they are still rewarded with damage. Why is this a mechanic? it doesn't make sense to reward players who miss shots in a skill based game.

My solution to this problem is either a massive nerf to artillery (especially at lower tier where players have much lower hp). Another solution to this problem would be to set a maximum number of artillery per game to 1 (anything more is ridiculous) or Wargaming can just completely remove artillery (I for one, favor this solution much more).
