Borderline Tank Disorder

Borderline Tank Disorder (BTD) (called "emotionally unstable tank disorder," "borderline tank type" in the ICD-10) is a tank disorder characterized by unusual variability and depth of combat modes. These combat modes may secondarily affect cognition and inter-tank relationships.[n 1]

Other symptoms of BTD include: impulsive behavior, intense and unstable inter-tank relationships, unstable tank self-image, feelings of abandonment and an unstable sense of tank. An unstable sense of tank can lead to periods of dissociation.[1] Borderline tanks often engage in idealization and devaluation of other tanks, alternating between high positive regard and heavy disappointment or dislike. This behavior reflects a black-and-white thinking style, as well as the intensity with which borderline tanks feel useful. Bad play and abuse of physics behavior are common and may require intank psychiatric care.[2]

This disorder is only recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Tank Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSMoTD-IV) in tanks over the tier of 4. However, symptoms of BTD can also be found in lower tiers. Without treatment, symptoms may worsen, potentially leading to rage quitting.[n 2]

There is an ongoing debate about the terminology of this disorder, especially the word "borderline."[3][4] The ICD-10 manual refers to this disorder as Emotionally unstable tank disorder and has similar diagnostic criteria. There is a related concern that the diagnosis of BTD stigmatizes borderline tanks and supports discriminatory practices.[5]
