    I think it is MWreplays.com, but I am at work so I can't go to it to make sure. You can make an account there easily and upload the saved file to there, then post a link in here and we can download it to watch using our WOT.

    you failed, one is still alive. honestly, if you are playing arty and you see the at2's or even some of the later lines in a good recieving position for your shells... you better make sure they play catcher otherwise they will keep soaking up rounds that could be used elsewhere.

    Just how entertaining/fun/profitable is the leFH18B2?

    Long term - something worth getting?

    It's ok. It's better than the nerfed Su-26, but not by a whole lot. Accuracy is wanting, but if you're patient and let the circle close (like playing a KV-1S) it will contribute. Because it's premium, it's super cheap to operate and fix. Ammo costs next to nothing, so if you have a good game, it's all profit.

    How much profit?

    ------------

    I'm having some good games as of late.

    I tell you, brothers, Gin has changed my life!

    ----------

    Oh yeah, almost forgot - buy your repair kits and medical kits today. half-off.

    I'm back to 500 repair kits, etc., etc. (it's my long-term savings plan)

    I make about 8-10K profit per battle, non-premium account.

    With Controlled Impact at 100%, you get to see lots of light tank scouts charging at my leFH18B2 and ram themselves to death.

    By the time finished researching my BatChat 155, the leFH18B2 crew was over 350%.

    Thanks Cat - not sure what that would be with premium, but it may not be worth the cost of buying another garage slot for profits like that (for me).

    Dave: it is good enough I sold all my other arti for those occasions when I want to play arti.
    When it draws Tier 4 it is obscenely OP (and that happens more than you'd think!)

    I picked it up on special a while ago. I think I average 15-20k with premium. Even if I get smoked plus ammo it only costs like 3k to repair and refit. I have the spall liner, rammer and net on mine. Accuracy sucks, but it's a tough arty against lower tier stuff. I like it well enough, not like the old Priest and pre-nerf SU26 though.

    LOL!

    I will have to debate it. The nice thing about arty is that it can hit and damage multiple tiers in any sort of game. I'm not sure how that correlates into profits vs. a premium tank, but it sure sounds like it would be a reliable money maker (unless Himmelsdorf is one's purgatory).

    Just got done playing a bit more. I'm here to extol the virtues of Gin upon the tanker's hands:

    [​IMG]

    All kinds of tanks (tiers 5 through 10), and even through in the limiting arena of clan wars, as well as platooned and solo, Gin is the medicinal tonic that begets results. Try it. Give some to your wife; give some to your baby; give some to your livestock.

    most people I talk to cringe when they are playing arty in a max tier battle, but for some reason that is where my priest has made it's best battles... yeah ok one shotting a tank is nice and all, but for some reason when you are dropping rounds on tier 7 heavies and doing only 50 damage per shot but hitting them like it is a repeating rifle can rake in the dough while pissing them off.

    My experience with the Grille is kindof love hate... I love hammering a heavy and doing 8 crits in one hit for 400+ damage, but when you only have 10 degrees (I don't know what the actual degrees are) of gun traverse before hull movement it is really really REALLY annoying to me. :huh It is fun to go TD mode and catch a light trying to come in to get you with one shot and watch as they slide to a stop.

    Maybe my hate of the Grille is because of my love of the american arty's gun traverse, but I dunno.

    You're exactly right - I have no problem at all taking zero kills, if I can distract the enemy from doing what they want, and scrambling for cover. That's arty's main job, and the occasional lucky hit that takes one out is just gravy. It's probably much better balanced now than it used to be.

    also the 50 something round capacity of the priest means you don't run out of ammo easily.
