Well, with this one in particular, I can't say for the Sexton....     There's almost Zero Splash with it to begin with if there even IS any at all......

 

Really the ONLY thing it has going for it is the Reload, 2nd would be the Hull is Based on the B1/B2 Heavy Tank....         3rd would be that being a Premium at the time of the Artillery Nerfing, it and the Sexton were Immune due to being Unavailable anyways.... 

 

Beyond that, it's the Meme Tank I believe they refer to it as...        Kinda like a Unicorn, it's a Fabled Destroyer that Existed in Books, but not so much anymore....

I, personally, have never found the other shell types to be worth the space in the magazine, I just load all HE.

 

What a scrub. All he plays is the fv304. No skill whatsoever.

Rate of fire

 

RoF means next to nothing when 80% of your shots miss or bounce.

This "rage" is pretty much unfounded.

Deviously, you are an experienced LB player but not the M41.    The range of the LB is short.  From the backlines, LB fire cannot reach the entire map, except for the smallest maps.  This limitation does not exist in the M41.

On many maps, as you know, this is a major damage limitation and a health risk to the LB.  This is a biggie. 

 

I have played against them though. And I don't worry about an M41 at all.

 

The leFH, btw, is most effective at about half it's range. When it is firing in that range, it will hit virtually all its shots, and you better hope you still have your repair kit, otherwise you are perma-tracked.

 

The only other arty I worry about are M44s. Situationally the M53, Conq GC (if I'm trying to hide behind something), and maybe a fully loaded BC tier 10 just b/c all those shots are annoying as hell.

That T 150 I perma tracked and hit 11 times in a row, 4 of which were blind shots, seemed to understand the "rage" based on his rather unkind msg he sent me after the game. I almost felt dirty because it was so much fun.

What's better than a leafblower in battle?

 

TWO leafblowers in battle.  :trollface:

 

Mucho thanks to my partner on Live Oaks earlier today!

Altogether, marks in 73 tanks, 2 marks in 13. So yeah … I looks like I have. You can check yourself if you want, I was never a fan of doing the dumb kids' homework for them.

I'll never forget while in SH for TierVI we ran into a group with 3 TOGII's , 2 leFH's and 2 Cromwells.  Everyone the Cromwells, backed into a corner, TOGS around the arty, near the cap and just wasted us. What a hoot that was.

Never tried one myself, but a friend I platoon with runs his quite a bit and seems to do pretty well with it.

One matter is certain, the leaf blower does ring the silver register.

Pew pew pew, best machine gun in the game. Far from being op but just so much fun to play occasionally.

Especially when it comes down to you vs one enemy left and he's a light tank who thinks he's sneaking up on you. But alas, you can out spot him.
