I've wanted this relic of the past for a long time. I can't wait to get it later this week. Still shocked that they are actually selling it. It's as infamous as the E25.

Oh my baby is back.  Again.  I got this the last time it was on sale and, it became my favorite tank.  It has farmed many many top guns and, high calibers for me, and, I have even got the reload down below 7.5 seconds, closer to 7.3.  And, with it, is allot of boom, hate, rage and, lols.

 

Time to see what the newbs who bu this thing does to my baby, and, its stripe on the barrel.

The greed here is filthy, shame on you. Grats to collectors though, I know this one isn't sold often, it reminds me of a "pay the rent" party. I'm sure this sale will make some players happy, though I wonder if this sale would bring in new players. Maybe the salt will make some quit :( I know I wont be in mid tiers for a while.

PSA: (new players) the lef is a tank you should be aware of when facing it, stay arty safe and if you get hit by one get unlit ASAP... the shells wont stop lol, happy hunting!

How much money did they figure they made on gift boxes for folks trying to pull a Lef that didn't that will now spend (relatively) big money on a guaranteed pull.

 

Marketing Matters.

I don't blame a company for looking for ways to make money but if WG doesn't realize by now that THIS tank (and arguably the entire artillery class) makes the game UNFUN for most...just seems likes a HORRIBLE decision to sell this...ever.

1) why wouldn't you enjoy taking it out, the "balancing" didn't touch it

2) if this was the old content_wg posting this, in the era of -1's it'd generate at least 100 negative votes if not more

3) I'll stop posting there, lest I say something un-kind about the caliber of play that arty creates, or the types of players that count arty as their favorite...

1.  The leFH18B2 used to be the second most powerful mid-tier artillery in the game.  When the FV3004 had its rate of fire and mobility nerfed, the leFH became THE most powerful mid-tier artillery in the game.  Of course it's going to be the most fun artillery to play.

2.  Why would the artillery rebalance change your enjoyment of the leFH?  Neither of the premium SPGs were changed by the rebalance, and it anything, the rebalance made the leFH even more powerful when compared to other mid-tier arty.

3.  I find it irritating beyond belief that we can purchase a tier 8 Super Mutant (M6A2E1) by itself for $36, but would have to shell out $52 for a tier 5 artillery and a load of junk that we don't want to spend real money on.

4.  The leFH is probably the most OP artillery in the game, and is cancerous in a tier 5 or 6 match.  Selling this OP monster again is damaging mid-tier gameplay, which hurts new players.  You know, the players that will keep WoT alive for years to come?

5.  Where are downvotes when you need them?

 

 

EDIT:  @KRZYBooP, you're just doing your job.  This was a bad decision on the part of management and marketing.

 

I know that there weren't many changes from 9.18 that didn't directly affect the Lef, but I did remember some blanket changes that I thought were applied to it indirectly. 

 

​To get rid of frustrating one-shots, we considerably lowered the penetration and damage per shot (DPS) for HE shells, while also removing AP, APCR, and HEAT shells for SPGs. Of course, one-shots are still possible if the shell lands on the target and hits its ammo rack, but the chances of it happening are close to zero now.

 

I am referring to this link HERE

 

Since the Lef fires a basic HE ammo type that was what I was referring to in my statement. I wasn't able to find anything specific to the Lef's ammo or the Lef as everyone stated. 

 

Did anyone notice any changes to the basic ammo values in the Lef?

I got one in my loot boxes.

 

The only reason I still have it is I refuse to sell a premium.

 

I wish I had got one in those boxes. Got a taste of pre-8.6 arty the other day in classic, those were the good times. A Bison was playable.

Are you really surprised that WG is selling this thing again?

I already have one.  If I buy the bundle do I get a second tank in the garage?

I bought one of these things 5 or 6 years ago.  At the time it was tier 4 I think, so I got it for around ten bucks (US) I think.   At the time I bought it, the US "Priest" SPG was also tier 4, and the rate of fire and damage of the T4 Priest and this arty was very close to each other.      Then WG changed everything, the Priest got knocked down to T3, arty overall got nerfed, and this was bumped up to tier 5.   Same stats though.      I still use  it all the time.  I figure since i bought it under original rule sin good faith, why not?

This thing should never have been in the Christmas P2W lootbox garbage from Christmas (I will admit I bought 250 of those [edited]things and I didn't get a single damn Tier 8 or E25), I got mine years back from a Italeri Ferdinand Model kit bonus code, AND THAT'S WHERE IT SHOULD HAVE STAYED.

Thanks, now I can never grind up past tier V on the lines I have left. 

Goodbye WoT, I'm taking another 2 year Hiatus, lets see who lasts longer.

It used to be fun to push one of these somewhere in tier 6 cw and just drop std's all over ppl.  Teams usually could not figure it out quick enough.

A T5 that launches HE, AP, and HEAT every 7.5 seconds.   430 alpha HE / 350 AP/HEAT ,  104mm's of pen.

 

 

 

The AP and HEAT are pretty well crap.

Nothing about the Lef was changed, FYI. It was not nerfed with the other arty changes.

The usual greedy-a$$ WG bs, $52 for a Tier 5 tank, only purchasable in bundles, what's the problem with selling the tank by itself? clearly they aren't afraid of selling other broken tanks by themselves, (Skorp G and Defender) so WHAT are they afraid of? :arta:

Skorp G and Defender on their own still command at least as much as any other tier 8 tank, if not a bit more due to their effectiveness. If the LeFH was sold on its own, it'd be $15 or less judging from the prices of standalone Tier 5s.

 

As ticked as I am about them selling it again outright (then again after selling the E-25 again, why am I surprised?) I hope the steep price point keeps too many from showing up in the cue. One LeFH can s hut down a team. I shudder to think what three on a team might do.
