Worst. Tank. Ever.

How the hell do you deal with anything else? Can barely pen a tier3 with best gun.
Slow as hell, armor seems to be the only "up side", even though it still feels too easy to pen.

How do you play this tank? Getting an average of 50xp per game, because I can't deal any damage.

Grit teeth and grind through it as fast as you can.

You are fail if you think the B1 sucks. The best gun slices through teir3 armor like hot knife through butter. If you know where to aim you can cut through the tough hides of an easy 8 Sherman ( but sadly not the Matilda )

Avoid Tier 5's.  Avoid Matildas.  Everything else you can deal with, especially if you flank.  Don't go straight into battle, use some sense and pick your cover.  Rate of fire is your friend, so pick the guy who is shooting at someone else, and wear him down.

You dont NEED gold rounds, but they help. As stated...for several patches now 'gold rounds' can be bought with credits.


Secondly, its actually a decent tank if you know how to play it. It needs to be played similar to a churchill. It may not have the same high(ish) pen as a churchill, but its tough and slow, with high DPM and decent accuracy. This tank will teach you (or you will want to learn) weakspots on tanks. Go for viewports, hatches and sides of tanks. The high RoF mixed with your armor makes you a good brawler.

I did it before Gold rounds for credits, and I enjoyed it.

I got 1st place in B1 stats it's a really fun tank when you max it out with crew and equipment!

Just load a lot of gold when you get to tier 5 it can pen a KV-1 frontally when aimed at weakspots but you gotta be close. :P

M3 Lee, B1 is a whole lot better because at least it has a turret.

B1 is so horrible that WG granted it limited match making and even buffed it few patches ago.

It is a horrible tank.  Gold rounds (at least carry a few) and gritting your teeth is the only way through.

What was that? I couldn't hear you over the sound of me kicking ass in the B1.
