Hey guys,

I just get the AMX AC 48 and Im perplexed by the loss of credits and defeats in this TD.

I have other tier 8 tanks and never lose so much credits and so many matches.

My winrate dropped to 30% in this tank.

Not even with ARL V49 I felt so lost and puzzled.

This is normal in this tank?

It's not as bad as people say. People say D.W.2 is garbage yet it's better than Matilda in my opinion.

 

You've picked a high skill cap TD line. Why don't you try american TDs and come back to frenchies once you're more experienced

Why do you think the T7-10 tanks are being reworked, again?

 

They are TDs... and it's not like you get a free T10 for your efforts either. Can't say I pity you too much. :P

Seems like OP is literally the only person on the EU server who legitimately is grinding frenchies out of curiosity, not because of the upcoming changes to the Foch 155.

You do 2 shots of damage pr game. So I suspect you do less then that at times to. As damage = credits. Add a loss and a full repair on top of that. And profit is not something that comes on a tier 8 tank or higher as easy. Sure it's getting buffed soon, as in WG will add a 3 round clip gun to it. But it's still a TD line that is not very forgiving if you make a mistake. Might be a good idea to pick a different line. As others have said. The British AT line is more forgiving if you want to play TD's.

what tier 8 do you have?

indid, its hard to control this bug tank, but you need to learn how to play it after a while. basicaly its aggresive TD.

I understand all the points, but its really amazing the number of defeats in this TD.

I lose 7, sometimes 8 out of 10. I never experience this kind of numbers before, even in my other Tier 8 tanks.

I believe the size of the tank is a factor. He really is a big target.

I don't know if is just a losing streak, but is amazing.

A Tiger II and a M41 Bulldog, but in another account.

Of course the gameplay experience is not the same.

But Im puzzled by the number of defeats in this particular TD.

i think you lost the race after the foch155, else you have free xp. it will be veri difficult to rich it. and yes, i agree, foch line is somehow more expensive to play with.

Felt the same way when i read that!!!

 

Turretless TD's...not much skill is required every map has a starting position (or more) then after a few minutes you follow the flanks. Sure you can bully the enemy lower tiers (tank) depending on the map and the MM.

Foch marginally less fun than 48. Grinding this line has destroyed any remaining love I had for the game. Stupidest thing is that I despise TDs. All of them. They are more annoying than arty nowadays.
No amount of free tanks worth the soul-destroying misery of all. All I want is to play my Type 5 and durp people in the face again. But I can't, because I need credits, too.

Yeah, certainly at the moment, the AC48 -> Foch -> Foch 155 grind is painful. Much like the rest of the French TD line to be fair, but with more xp to get through.

So you're saying Foch line is easy to play? Then why was it the least played tank line in the game until they announced 9.20 changes? Why do majority of Turretless TD players can't play for sh*t if turretless TDs have a low skill cap?

 

Turretless TDs are borderline useless unless you know what you're doing. Lost so many battles because turretless TDs (top tiers as well) camped for 10 minutes near the base and did 2 end-game farming shots before getting outnumbered.

Who said goldless? Are people really that broke they can't afford to shoot APCR at tier 4, shells cost like 800 credits....my Lowe AP is 1k.

It was not the least played because it was high skill line, and is difficult to play. It's just that most of them, especially the 155 went from great to useless after they nerfed it. And most know that the line is crap, and thus stayed away from it. The paper thin side armor was one of the reasons along with the terrible gun soft stats etc. Now most people are playing them as they know they will get a free tier X premium if they make it before the patch more so then that the changes are awesome.
