Hello,

 

How can I avoid these arty, they are he most OP things in the game, forget defender at least they have drawbacks, compeltlty rictus this thing shooting every 10 seconds AND has high view range 

 

Since its a premium tank how can WG nerf them? also how come there are literally 2 very game now? have they been given out recently? 

 

literally impossible to play wit these things

Get me to drive it. Mine couldn't hit Scotland if it was parked on Hadrian's wall.

You can avoid them by not playing tier 4-7.

Not talking about high tier arty? Talking about other low tier arty. Normal tech tree arta is much worse. Lefe actually has to hit you to do damage/track. which it rarely does.

My Sexton I is far more effective than my LEF, and my Bishop better still.

 

I don't play arty often but I do have some keepers on the basis that they get wins, these being:

 

  • GW Panther 52%
  • M44 55%
  • FV304 55%
  • Bishop 67%
  • LEF 52%
  • Sexton I 63%
  • Loyd Gun Carriage 75% (low number of games)

 

The LEF has the advantage of being very funny to play, as you can almost see a copper-coloured fume of anger rising from its victims.  The Bishop is even funnier as it hits the spots that other arty cannot reach.

 

"As flies to wanton boys, are we to the LEFs; they kill us for their sport." ('King Lear' Act 4 Scene 1)

 

And on the question of how to avoid them, you take 4.53% of your damage from HE which is not really a big deal, so why complain?  I, on the other hand, take only 2.90% hits from HE, so my humble suggestion would be that you don't sit in arty kill zones.

1. bottle of whiskey, or as much as needed for your vision to go funny, and you won't notice it anymore.

They can't nerf it. But they can fix the MM so it's not more broken. As in preventing 2 to appear on the same team, or have it back up 2 M44's. Cus that's always fun. If one team gets the LeFH. That's their arty limit reached.

I play a lot of arty, I enjoy them.

Funny thing is, when I don't play arty and play other tanks, they seldom bother me.

 

There's one of two possibilities, either the enemy arty recognises me as a fellow artillery player, and leaves me alone. Or I know how to avoid arty hits.

I'm not sure which yet. But I am getting closer.

Edit your exaggeration and then ask again.

You almost always find that those who take a lot of HE hits complain most vociferously.

I hardly ever get hit or damaged by arty.  Naturally the first thought that comes to mind is that I am a genius

But there is also the possibility that. like you, I know enough to avoid the bleeding obvious spots on which arty can get easy hits

And most of my tanks played have been slow, heavy artillery magnets

Whoever had the idea of this stun "feature" should be quartered. Its even more punishing for active play then the pure damage ever was.

the lefh seriously gives me headaches with it's rng. It's only arty I have where I've run out of ammunition on multiple occasions because it missed so much. It seems to always choose the tiniest pixel to miss just so it burns.:sceptic:

 

also if lefh is OP let me introduce you to my Sexton 1:trollface:
