Shitty Tanks - The BDR G1B by DerangedMeowMeow Shitty Tanks - The BDR G1B by DerangedMeowMeow
I play the online game WoT (World of Tanks), because I like tanks. Well, that was until the developers of said game released the French tanks.

You see, there are real bad-ass tanks and there are really bad ass-tanks. By experience this is the winner of the latter thus far. The amount of mental pain, suffering and frustration generated by this one tank exceeds all the others combined, French or not (and I've only crawled up the Heavy tank tree).

Well, enough game-babble. So what does an artist do with all this negative energy..? well, he use it for something creative of course. Hence this image made in Flash. Enjoy!

Note: The French tanks in the game WoT, as represented by the sweet and kind professionals at Wargaming.net, does not necessarily represent those of the real French tanks from WW II...

...but it would explain why the Nazis blitzed the shit out of them... ;)

Too bad the French tanks aren't in WoT Blitz on iPad. I'd love to see some British tanks in it too

B1's actually gave the PzIV divisions trouble in WWII.

and for the love of god, the BDR is not THAT bad. the 90mm on it is pretty damn good. tank itself is meh though. I'm rockin' in my 50B nowadays

Well, WoT isn't really a game of simulation, more like an arcade-game.

After grinding through so many pos french tanks this one made me give up french tanks and switch to artillery. At least with the b1 I had some good matches. We won a lopsided 4 vs 9 match after most of our team comitted virtuall suicide. Just me in my B1, a Hetzer, a tier III arty and a Lee. Wish I had that match recorded.

Actually with the 90mm this tank plays like a KV with the 107 pre-7.4. The improved MM certainly helps, but it's always satisfying when I pop a tier VII in the thing. Sure it's armor cannot protect it from most tier V weapons in a knife fight, but it's a moot point when you possess the only 90mm cannon in a tier V tank.

But yeah, without it the 90mm it rolls around like a moving target that fires rounds that either bounces or simply does not cause enough damage.

Once I managed to shoot out a Panther II as he did not finished me, next to a Jagd Panther. A lucky side shoot with the 90mm killed his last 10% HP XD
The Jagd Panther lol'd XD

Also its funny when you are in a tier 4-5 only match. I managed to get the title "destroyer" in such a match (medium tanks phear me, if I see you first.)

Hey, I had a BDR G1B. It wasn´t a bad thank. The problem is the Matchmaking system. Usually I end up with tier 8 - 9 tanks.
Still I have my old Char B1 and I like it. I will like it even more when the onboard howitzer will be available.

Meh, I like the tank simply because of it's design. It's painful tank to play what heavy was meant to be, but I still find some enjoyment in tier 6, not really as bad as everybody told me. As it's avg pen is simply decent enough to make an unsuspecting IS went "Aw how cute of-KABOOM!".

Have you tried the French light tanks? They are equally worthless around the same tier. I deem the AMX 40 the most useless light tank ever in the game. It's so slow it gets easily overtaken by heavy tanks, except downhill...which I find a bit ironic since it always feels like it's going downhill and slightly south with that tank in -every- -single- -battle-. :p

the only thing that the french light tanks have(not with the 6 round barrel) is too much armor.and thats it the BDRG1B is the biggest bullshit that calls himself a tier 5 heavy tank its so usles it reloads its pathetic 90mm gun at the same time like my old is 3 his 122 mm bl9.

I knew the french had an answer for the metal coffin that is the russian KV when unupgraded. :P

Well, pretty much ALL stock tanks suck in WoT, even when semi-upgraded. Personally I LOVE the KV when combined with the 152mm cannon, mods and a 100% crew. In fact, it's my only tank-crew with three skills, nearly all maxed up. That's how often I use it in the game.

That would explain why they are more esthetical than practical.

Considering that the majority of the French tanks are from designs that never got off paper, well they do may great targets for my Grille.

I bet they were made for fashion warfare. :D

The French tanks added to the game actually do have some very interesting designs, but pretty doesn't quite cut it on this online battlefield. Here the best tank, biggest gun and most merciless tactics and the smoldering wrecks of your enemy are the only things considered beautiful. Well, that and a shit-load of EXP and Credits. ;)

funny enough, the game developers actually has plans to add infantry into the mix at some point, maybe. It would be nice. Means that the French tanks won't be the only cannon-fodder out there...

Well, it won't happen soon. But yes, French tanks suck from the very beginning till 8th level. But their light tanks are the real pain the ass, that's for sure. And BDR G1B is really the worst heavy tank among his closest competitors - KV and T1 Heavy. 60 mm in front? This is ridiculous...

DerangedMeowMeow Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012
Yeah, I kind skipped the light tanks after the AMX 38 for the sake of my own sanity. The KV sucks for starters but I still got one. It's silly 152mm cannon makes it a keeper. :D The BDR however, does not improve with its biggest gun. To be fair, it also has to do with really bad match-making.

In general it was said by the observers during the campaign of france as well, that many french tanks weren't vry reliable, or that they where designed for other type of war...

maybe they would be better in World of Tanks if there was infantry and trenches, and the french tanks where supported by infantry? Lol!
