Played a few games in this tank and it feels nice. It turns on a dime, the gun spits fire and the alpha hurts at that tier and it has some really good side scraping potential to bounce shots and it has a workable gun depression. Stock like any tank is killer bad but one or 2 games and you can pretty much unlock the whole tank and start contributing actually. Not sure about third equipment slot so I just got optics. 

 

I think I'm gonna enjoy the grind after the horrors of the Renault FT and the horridly slow D1. Not sure about B1 but one tank at a time. I'm gonna savour this line like Hannbal Lector savoured that Liver with his Fava Beans.

 

Tfeh tfeh tfeh tfeh tfeh!

Don't worry my friend, the B1 is just like the PZ B2 except for preferential matchmaking. So basically you can seal club all you want but when you meet tier 5, umm you're done for. Btw look at stock ARL 44's  turret lol. New square tank to be friend with the SU-100Y

Played this today and after the initial honeymoon, had 5 games out of 5 being low Tier, sometimes as the only Tier 4 tank in a team of Tier 5's. The tank is absolutely horrible when being low Tier. Gave up and switched to another tank in Tier 5.

 

It seems like these events/new lines sometimes cause severe tier mismatches that can put you on the bottom with a very high probability.

I don't know how you guys have the patience for the low tier French tanks. I'm on the B1, and I just had to take a break. It is such a headache to play. I'm sick of peashooters. If you guys have tips, I'm open to any suggestions.

agreed, this tank has decent armor (not enough in my opinion to carry hard enough if your team is the noobiest of noobs but still good), super fast reload and good pen. Really enjoying this over the D1 and FT hands down.
