The poll is all but over and so the horribly overpowered leFH18B2 will be put on sale this weekend. We cant stop WG from selling it and we cant stop people from buying and playing it. The question is: what can we do to make the situation better?

 

Suggestion 1:

We stop playing WoT for a couple of months until the artyEDIT get bored and stop playing

 

Suggestion 2: "Operation: Kamikaze EDIT"

We play fast and powerful LT's like the Leopard or T64 and make mad suicidal flanking runs to kill every leFH18B2 we see until the artyEDIT get so frustrated that they begin playing other tanks. It'll cost us dearly in terms of winrate and stats, but that's the price you have to pay.

 

 

any other ideas?

I suggest you stick with #1 preferably for the next 10 years. 

 

One EDIT less in the game.

Don't worry, it will be so filthily expensive that you won't see a big influx of them on the battlefield anyway. Expect 30EUR+ packages minimum.

Who honestly gives a EDIT? People will do afew games init, realise arta is terrible to play and play against and get bored of it. And the hardcore canc arty players will soon realise that its a not that great

Let's hope WG will put it to premium shop in some crazy pack with gold, reserves, crew missions ... so cost of this EDIT will be ridiculous for tier5 premium.

You mean playing tier 7 and 8 with crapMM, tier 9 god mm and tier 10 ok mm?

 

Tbh I haven't played the game in like 2 weeks, maybe 1 or 2 battles. Because there's just so much arty, atleast 2 or 3 on each side.

 

Combining that with XVM it's just not fun anymore

 

If they don't change this sooner or later game will die

Its not that good, rumored to be even more inaccurate than other artys also lacking alpha. I think buyers will be disappointed expecting some op machine

Simple solution is to play a tier V SPG, I mean it's not like most of the people buying the leFH are going to relocating between their shots, plus it makes their queues longer :P

leFH has a high arc,  so is slow to hit something.  If spotted just move.  It takes a lot of leading to get direct hits on moving targets so don't drive in straight lines.  The 105mm gun is weak against any kind of armour so play KV1 or O-I exp etc.  Don't drive straight toward it, it has good frontal armour and is good at 'shot-gunning'.  Take care when repairing tracks after being hit as another shell is likely to hit 8 seconds later.  It's also the slowest arty in the game so when you know where it is firing from it is easier to counter as it won't likely relocate.  I find the leFH is easy to influence a battle with noobs in it but good players are much harder to deal with.  Basically don't play like a noob.

I don't think it will have a long effect on the MM. Arty is kinda boring, but probably there will be people training their crews for a while in it. 90% will play a couple games, decide it sucks and leave it to dust.

It all have to go your way......for you the game is only fun when you top tier...

Fun being tier 8 top tier and destroy stock tier 7 and 6 than you have so  much fun and its all good

But when your  OP tier 8 prem with uber crew must face tier 10 than its a problem......you have a bigger advantage in your tier 8 superpremium against tier 10,than that stock tank and crew tier 6 against your Op tier 8 prem.

The game will die sooner or later.......i think the world will be ending in like 3 generations...they have just no backbone..

True - you can get ridiculous misses in that thing - and it is extremely vulnerable to counter battery. It lacks any upgraded splash, but it can use AP (not a good idea usually due to the accuracy).

Anyhow, playing it is an adventure into the time of old arties :)

Lets be serious for one minute eh, you mitigate the arty like you do in any game, flank with meds and lights and destroy them, simples..

 

 

 

 

Oh and you also instruct your own arty to blindfire.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There problem solved, the way folk are reacting is as if some deadly virus flesh eating ants are going to swarm all around you and nick all the biscuits, Stop it, just stop the panic ok....

 

 

 

Thank you rant over
