French low tiers that don’t get a lot of love, well, while there’s certainly plenty of competition, few people have a lot of nice things to say about this one. Thanks to Stahlwollvieh and Harpoentje for sending these in!

  1. Harpoentje sounds like an anagram of PointyHairedJedi with some of the
    letters and all of the “I”s shaved off.

  2. I have to feel bad for the T2 Light in the second replay. The fact that it
    sees tier 4 games almost exclusively is the only reason it is a bad

  3. The wife gets distracted by shiny things very easily. But I’m sure she
    wasn’t driving that T-40

  4. The Sau 40. Uggh, hated that thing.

    • +NinjaMonkeyPrime I was about to give up on it and then derped my way
      through Malinowka in a tier 5 battle ending with 9 kills, it is
      hpyer-situational 😛

  5. blimey. harpoentje nearly got HT mission 15 done! wtf!

  6. This is a tank that did not translate from its real life counterpart very
    well. If Wot ever activates the secondary guns on tanks such as this I
    believe it would go a long way toward changing that. I like my B1… but if
    I’m totally honest I carry a fair supply of APCR because the 47 mil is

  7. I’m currently running a self challenge to use the derp gun on the DW2.

  8. Hooray, I’m famous! ^.^

    In retrospect: Yes, that little incident with the Su-85B was my fault.
    Sorry about that, was obviously not paying attention properly. :/

  9. -tje or -je on the end of Dutch words makes it a small thing. They put it
    on everything. The username means little harpoon. 

  10. Great work Jedi 🙂 great video, I couldn’t get along with the B1, I came to
    it from the Russians, didn’t feel OP enough :p

  11. I really like that you showcase some of the lesser-seen tanks in the game.
    Most other youtubers only show replays from popular/OP tanks. My favorite
    tanks are the AMX 40, B1, ARL V39, and Churchill GC, and I really
    appreciate that you take the time to create content on them. Keep up the
    good work!

  12. I love these low tier games. So many other replays focus on nothing but +8
    tier games, and yet I have had some of my most enjoyment in -5 tier games.
    Thanks Jedi 

  13. that tea drinking top hat tipping British man

    Can we have a clip of you saying “roast me gards” please?

  14. Why do people not like the B1, but they go seal clubbing in the B2 all the
    time, he’ll I have a friend with over 4K games in his B2.

    • +Cnf 60 As above, the B2 is a premium tank, so it never sees T5s, has
      modified credit earnings and XP trainer for your HT German crew. But yeah,
      I carry 50/50 AP and APCR cause the gun is shit, especially if you go
      facing off against another B1/B2, Matilda or Valentine.

    • +Cnf 60 B2 never sees higher than tier 4 games. And the B2, like the B1, is
      an excellent tank when faced against tier 4s. The B1 however can see up to
      tier 5 tanks, and it is simply hopeless considering it meets KVs and its
      penetration is even weak against the tier 5 version of the pz4.

    • +FeeDBacKMKII Matilda is just OP compared to B1 though (at least in same
      tier game… well even in general)

    • +Cnf 60 noone likes tanks what needs gold for being competent and the
      matilda players in the last game were just bad

    • +Cnf 60 Top tier only matchmaking, is why.

  15. The moments are very few and very far. However, that being said… I
    somehow have a 60 odd % WR in mine. IDK how.

  16. +PointyHairedJedi 2nd replay, its dutch (he’s from a mixed dutch/belgium
    clan) and stands for Harpoon, although it does include a typical dutch
    thing ‘tje’ which makes it basicly ‘little harpoon’ translated :)

  17. I remember when I first started the game i saw the B1 and went “ooh heavy
    tank”… then proceeded to suck horribly…….

  18. I actualy REALY liked this tank, Never in tier 6 games, good when angled,
    good at sidescraping, It feels like a Matilda WITHOUT the Pen….

    (Harpoentje Means small Harpoon)
