Play Japanese heavies and laugh as they bounce off you all game, even the HE rounds.

 

This and wait for the forum to fill up with threads asking why the AP and HEAT shells are so bad.

95% of WoT couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo, so I wouldn't worry too much about the Leffe.

Oh and you also instruct your own arty to blindfire.

 

Because telling other people how to play is always well received and gives your team an edge. :unsure:

 

FWIW when playing arty I often ask my team to tell me where they're being shot from so I can fire counter-battery and after several hundred battles, so far they've done it a total of no times. So, yeah, moan about arty all you want but if you're not helping your own arty you're part of the problem.

i think you got the wrong end of the stick, and yes telling them what to do has as much effect as King Canute turn the tides, as an arty playing EDIT, I don't tell anyone what to do....

 

Well not directly, what I do is press the T key which informs them the area where my shot will land:arta:

I've found it's roughly a 50/50 split between those who recognise you're firing there and give you the space for the shell to land while they reap the spotting rewards and those who think it's a magic circle that gives you free sweeties if you drive into the middle.

That's fine for you blurple types but what about us scrubs manfully propping up our stats by playing mid and low tiers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THOSE scrubs propping up THEIR stats, I mean, not "us" and "our". Obviously. :hiding:

well.. I might buy one if the price is right. I need a low tier French premium for crew training and since there's precisely none of those this will have to do...

 

I wonder how many others bought it for that reason?

No, I don't play TDs in general.

 

But heard T67 is the T5 stetpedders tank of choice.

One EDIT less in the game.

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'll switch between option 2 and 3. Option 3 I cannot mention because of warning point reasons, but I'm sure you get what I mean.

 

KV-2, OI, amx 12t, chaffee will get alot of play time this weekend :trollface:

What I would suggest you do sir is put on your Big Boy Trousers, maybe break out a decent LT, as you have mentioned, and get a little payback.

However, I have been reliably informed by some forum whiners players that it isn't possible to counter arty, so you may very well be wasting your time.

Having said that, the VK16.02 is by far my favourite arty slayer - yes I love playing arty, but I also love slaughtering them.:playing:

Enter battle with a Pz. IV H and TK any leFaffer you see. Teach them and WG a lesson. If we unite in this matter, we can make a change. Make this game fair again.

Seriously, you're that scared of them?! :amazed:

 

Even before the arty changes, their HE hardly penned anything except paper tanks like the T67 and while they can reload quickly, the accuracy means you're spamming most shells into the scenery no matter how long you aim (and I play mine with a BiA crew and food). The most OP thing about them is the 400m base view range; other than that they're not very different from every other mid-tier arty using the first gun.
