Three quick questions:

 

1 - Can you still see the tracer and the "woosh" sound by unspotted enemy clickers (Counter-battery still possible)?

 

2 - Is the French Premium arty going to be on sale this year?

 

I ask because of this:

 

3 - Is artillery being removed? I don't ask this as a rant but from what I've heard in Q&A sessions. I've started the B-C 155 58 line and I'd rather not do the grind of the class that takes the longest to reach Tier X. So I don't feel so confident in keeping up the grind.

 
I ask because of this:

 

And for Tier VIII's sake, NO arty rage. I don't want WG_M closing the thread before I get useful information.

It's a pity when even respectable posters don't use the proper "pinned" thread for SPG discussions.

I-I know, sorry. But this is with regards to gameplay and news, so I thought it could be an exception. Guess I was wrong...:(

1) Yes you can still counter battery

 

2) haven't seen it on sale in years

 

3) I doubt it'll be removed anytime soon, WG are incredibly slow to make changes when they can just make and sell some more premiums to the plebs

 

Spoiler

I'd stay away from the french.

They've been hit the hardest from nerfs, almost twice as hard as cgc for instance.


They used to be good versatile machines but nowadays they are just terrible no splash low alpha low shell trajectory toys.


Grind one of the big gun big splash dice roll spg's, that's what wg wants you to do.

 

To give some perspective, with the bc58 you often need an entire clip to counter another arty unless you manage a 1/10 chance of a penetrating shot

I find tier10 arty pointless as the lower tiers do it all better.

Why do people not see the quite plain answer to that question.

No worries, there will always be some self-righteous dumb schlong around to save the day and reel the respectable poster back in line :trollface:

It's the "for now" that worries me.

Too bad WG's lack of transparency is part of the game, quite literally but OK.

Honestly LEFH is probably the best vehicle tier for tier in the game.

It usually goes on sale like once sometimes twice a year and it is nearly always cheap.

Alternatively I believe the Italeri WOT Ferdinand model set comes with the Bonus code for the LEFH but I'm not sure if those codes are locked to specific servers.

​ I succeded to get leFH last august with that code, but now there is not leFH code in Ferdinand model box.  That may be an clue to what WG is thinking of that fine tank.

leFH hasn't been sold for over a year and is unlikely to be on sale ever again as it doesn't fit with the current Arty meta...
