I'm thinking about starting a new line of tank destroyers and I was looking at French line. Any thoughts about them? Are they any good? I don't know nothing about them, but Just from looking at them I'm thinking first few tiers aren't worth playing. Which tier is worst (tier 7 looks especially bad)? And from where I should expect to get some (if any at all lol) enjoyment from playing them.

Played the line when it had the single shot mechanism for most of the tanks, I absolutely despised every tank in the line with the exception of the tier 10 which was tolerable when the gun on it was still occasionally  hitting something for 850. 

 

The tier 8 and 9 might not be  as horrible anymore due to  the improvements in the armor profile and the addition of autoloaders, but if you are looking for a turretless td line that is actually good I would recommend the russian one that leads to object 268.

I’m currently on the Foch. The whole line is pure [edited]. The tier 5 is the only good one in the whole line.

Tier 5 is very good, tier 6 is map dependent when you can stay in cover it can dish out plenty of damage; tier 7 is very difficult to play as you have neither mobility or a decent gun. Tier 8 is poor until you get the auto-loader. The Foch is very good provided you can stay out of trouble. Like all non-turreted TDs the light tank meta is the biggest drawback as you constantly have to readjust to take shots.

I've got as far as the tier 8 and it's reasonably decent, I can't say the grind to there has been that much fun after the tier 5.

The tier X 50B is my new favourite tier 10 TD.

 

6x400 reloads in 33 seconds.

Not very encouraging so far. Tier V is good (good camo? gun?) and tier 8 gets autoloader. What kind of autoloader is it? Is it the one from 50 100?

Full health badger went nose to nose with me recently.... I had just reloaded. He was dead about 11 seconds later ;-)

Tier 7 caught my eye as a bad one, because it has no armor, looks slow and camo is awful. I'm not sure how to play tank like that at all. Possibly the worst TD at that tier in general ( at least from stats).

So so, but is limited to 3 shots as far as i know.

Tier IX gets 4 and Tier X gets 6.

Lol, I do have French heavy line (at tier 5 so far), but not sure if I'm going after autoloaders, I was more interested in single shot heavies.

Tier 6 is good exampample cases where you get good gun in bad tank. Tiers 3, 5, 8 and 9 were keepers to me.

I disagree, I liked tiers 6-8 and tier 9 is even better. This whole line has been positive suprise for me, I thought it would be painful grind but no, it has been quite enjoyable so far :)

It has some armor, I have bounced quite a few shots in it. Gun is good, mobility is fine. Quite a decent td in my opinion.

Have you checked the French Tanks thread?

 

There is a topic very similar to this one, with multiple suggestions.

Tier 5 was a real good one... tier 6 is reasonable... and 7 is shite. At least in my hands. I find it really miserable to grind it through. From my perspective its the 1st french tank i dislike, with every inch of my mediocre abilities.
