That thing is the cancer of mid tiers, why does it have more dpm than a tier 10 arty? Why does it have AP and HEAT unlike all the researchable arties? Why does it have an 8 second reload? It's OP as [edited]from my point of view, before the christmas event with the big loot boxes i have never met it, after the crates have been added and until now i can say 1/3 matches have at least two of them. I swear to god that from all the arties i've met, that one is almost always able to one shot me, and if it doesn't one shot me, it just cripples me and permatracks me until enemy tanks kill me. With the 3/5/7 applied for tier 4, i can barely grind while that thing one-shots me from its own comfort zone, not to mention that i also need to hide from other higher tier actual tanks because i am basically a target practice for them, so, how do i counter it and be able to still do some damage so i don't waste my X2 just to earn 500 exp because i survived the match by camping behind a rock?

Well, you go to the front and find any arty safe spot as far forward as possible, t hen you wait there until enemy attacks you. At this point your arty can shoot enemy tanks while you are safe from their arty. You also have defending advantage and can have supporting tanks.

 

If enemy font attack you, you just wait. Eventually enemy attacks.

 

You ever only push out of your team is 5+ tanks ahead or if you are safe to move to a new arty safe position further forward while still having support.

Because it is a premium and they couldn't change it without offering refunds. I just wish they would stop selling it. Don't be the first spotted or the easiest target, that is about all you can do against any arty.

You kill the enemy team as fast as you can while constantly getting shot by lefefe and if you survive you can finally after that kill it camping in the back.

 

This works with every arty and is the only counter against them.

Seems strange that WG have already stated they WILL change Premium tank shells when they rollout the ammo changes because ' it is not a nerf cos it affects all tanks ' yet they couldn't or wouldn't change Premium arty shells due to the same reason.

Changing a system completely compared to changing simply premium ammo isn't really the same. The proposed to premium ammo isn't even that smart.

Simple, just avoid anything below t6 like a plague, ive been doing that, but then those pesky m44s are there.

*edited*

Lefh can keep you perma tracked, and spam heat if youre slow, m44 keeps you perma stunned and just shits on everything that has little armor, especially on slow maps, and CG just shoots over cliffs, coz of the gun ark, so screw arty cover.

The balancing in this game is so screwed.

 

Worst part is, for some flipping reason, the lefh has 350 hp, so it can actually be a better t4 TD with that reload and heat

 

Just camp bush and get that raider medal these days.

You don't counter it because arty doesn't have a counter.

Buy a LeFH, look in the typical arty locations, kill the opposing team member - countered.

And i will say it again, With the 3/5/7 applied for tier 4, i can barely grind while that thing one-shots me from its own comfort zone, never mentioned the O-I anywhere, i am talking about leFH's ability to seemingly one-shot every tier 4, ocasionally bad tier 5's, even if it misses, it has that 8 second reload so it can try again, thus making grinding tanks especially hard for newbies like me (1500 battles, still learning) 

 

Btw, whenever i play the Japanese HT line, i know i will mainly be the main target for arties most of the time, so that is why i am not whining about how slow my 100+ ton, multi turreted, 175 frontal armor slug equipped with a 15CM howitzer is.

Man... M44 keeps you perma stunned? Top gun (err... pea shooter) gives you 5s of stun on average with around 18s reload. Just dont tell me you are permastunned.

CGC has 50s reload so only masochists would like to play it so screw that.

But Lefefe is kinda OP though.

Hi guys, 

 

I have to close this thread. Please use the Big SPG Discussion if you want to talk about artillery ( http://forum.worldof...cussion-thread/ ).

 

See you soon!
