Looking through the French Tanks Tech Tree and you see a "B1", you read about it online and find out about its amazing ability to take on the German Tanks it encountered during the start of WWII with both its 75mm Canon and 47mm Gun.

 

You get it here on Blitz and quickly find out that you can only get a 47mm gun, even though your tank clearly has a big 75mm canon sticking out the front end!

 

Now half your battles or more are against Level 5 Tanks with 75mm or bigger guns and this puny 47mm which the game is restricting you to, will not do squat against the armour of a KV1 or Churchill or T1.

 

Either give the B1 a 75mm gun or keep it out of Tier V battles.

The amx 13 57 is given a 57mm and then tossed up against obj 257s and vk 100ps 90% of the time...

Sooooooooooo, I don't see what the problem is!

(In all seriousness, Wargaming neutered every tier 4 while essentially leaving tier 5 alone. The premium b2 actually gets preferential matchmaking so it will never meet tier 5, but wargaming doesn't care about the tech tree varient)

If you are grinding, you’ll be done in a handful of battles. If not,

i have no idea why you are playing it or even care. Everything below t5 is irrelevant, historically accurate or not.

WG goes out of their way to try to balance, rebalance, placate to newbies and noobs, ...

 

Historic superiority, or on the opposite side of it: lack thereof, means nothing in WOT or WOTB or WOWSB. 

 

It is a game. WG decides how vehicles are balanced. 

 

Petition denied.

Leave my vitamin B 1 alone.

 

Every growing Stug III driver needs daily servings of B 1 to develop good grinding ability. And they are so yummy! Crunchy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside. 

 

(For an extra treat, try toasting one with an engine fire.  Dee-licious!)


 

This is what you get for letting rednecks play with antimatter, boss.

Get the Pz B2 next chance you get, problem solved. 

                                        

                                                                                                                          Keep it old school.

They aren't exactly bite sized though...

Choking hazard? :hiding:

Except that by making the low tiers such a dumpster fire, the nubs have that extra incentive to rocket up to high tiers and make that a waste land too. :sceptic:

When you’re bottom tier, play second line and use your gun depression. You have 13 degrees, which is a huge amount, and a tiny round turret. It works pretty well if you do it right. Bring lots of APCR. In case you didn’t know, you can buy them for credits. It’s more affordable than you think, as long as you do damage.

ITA. I learnt rather early on it's a waste of time playing this tank.


If devising successful means of extracting money from their customers were an Olympic event WG would be gold medalists!

No they took away things like using premium gas in tier V which really hurt the lower tier Heavies in mobility when low tier.
They also messed with reload times and other things on tier Vs which made the tier to tier balance much worse that took a lot of fun out of the game, which is why I quite at the time and hardly ever play Blitz anymore.

Here we go again, injecting yourself in a thread, expressing tank opinions that have no validity ... it is not the tank ... it is you. 

 

The B1 is a bloody great tank. End of story.
