I've got one... and it kinda sucks.  It's probably the least 'fun' (if I can use that word) arty I've ever played.

.

And with the wheelie dealies running around you're guaranteed a quick trip to the garage.  So why the hate?

It can, or could, perma track you, even if you have 100% Repair and Toolbox. For me, that's primary reason to hate them.

From Wiki:

Above average view range

- Great aim time and murderous rate of fire allows you to keep enemy tanks permanently tracked

- Highest DPM of all SPGs in the game (2700) enables you to delete enemy tanks single-handedly

- Retains full 105mm damage and penetration after 9.18 SPG re-balance. Its penetration is nearly on a par with with tier 9 SPGs, and is capable of one-shotting tier 5 mediums and can deal serious damage to HTs

- Retains AP and HEAT shells to complement it's HE rounds even after 9.18

- High shell arc means hitting targets behind cover is easier than some other SPGs

 

That's why.

Basically its immature players that thing the world revolves around their gameplay. Obviously, they are gods in their own small minds) They hate arty disproportionally. The LEF is annoying by its rate of fire and mommy can't kiss the lef's victims boo-boos fast enough.

It has better View Range than the wheelies it faces before Skills, so you only get a quick trip to the garage if you move further than your spawn, which SPG players never do.

Again - I must be doing it wrong b/c I drive my US arty all over the place

 

I find it frustratingly inaccurate, and with Tier 6 matches being all about speed there is little time to settle in and whittle anything down

Once upon a time World of Tanks had but one fearsome, all terrifying Boogeyman. Then the players had it banished and all should have been well. However, without their Boogyman the players had nothing to rage against and thus raged against anything and everything that they didn't like, didn't have, got killed by or some combination of the three. IE the Leaf blower. 

 

 

 

LONG LIVE THE BOOGYMAN

I've never understood it, they're not that great. Yeah it sucks when one manages to hit you more than once in a row but there are so many other SPG's I worry about far more.

If you have a good crew and know how to score hits with it. 

Otherwise it's useless due to lack of splash. 

I like mine, but it's not my go-to artillary for wnning games.
