First of all I know that a lot of people really hate the french tanks unless they are on your team!
I love all my french tanks but i hate them at the same time. Having the same gun on the AMX 50 100, and Bat Chatillon 25T i can say that the tanks certainly do seem OP in a certain sense and may be nerfed, but the sad truth is I hate the cost of usage of my french tanks. Repairs are 12thousand like any other tier 8 tank and the income is exactly the same but ammunition cost is relatively high. Even when i get top gun and 50k credits i end up using 12k on repairs and upto 40k on resuplying ammunition. I can somewhat understand why the devs aren't exactly openly saying anything about nerfing the top french tanks because of the cost of use, so we pretty much get high amounts of exp and no cash in the end.
I don't really see where this is going to go but if we get nerfed the devs might have to lower our ammunition cost. (note they cant nerf the armor much or the HP as the AMX's armor is on average about 150HP less than its equivalents). What i am tinking the devs might do is take some of the guns of and leave the lorraine and AMX 50 100 with a 90mm gun or lower the damage or pen on the 100mm.
Any idea's guys?
EDIT: my personal opinion is they shouldn't be nerfed because of the income
