Post Advantage of lattice sieve over line sieve

In line sieve, we sieve for a particular small prime p for only once; and in lattice sieve, we sieve for that p for every special-q (p<q and number of special-q's may be very large). So, what is the gain in the latter one? Definitely, I am missing something. Can anyone please elaborate the gains/advantage of lattice sieve in details, and also on the choice of the parameters C and D.

Thanks in advance.
