  1. sucede que dentro de poco tendré (por fin) los créditos suficientes para comprar el Friedrich der grosse, T9 Alemán (ya lo desarrollé, solo me faltan créditos), pero también dentro de poco tendré suficiente xp para desarrollar Richelieu, T8 francés. Ando corto de créditos así que obviamente, el que escoja me dejará sin créditos para comprar el otro, y deberé esperar hasta volver a juntar créditos suficientes, debería quedarme con el T8 francés o ir por el T9 alemán?

    French BBs - A quick review

    So, not going to do 'full reviews' like I did of the British BBs because lazy, but having played up through Alsace, here'smy quick impressions of the French BB line so far: Standard review disclaimer by me: I am an average to a bit above average player who plays mostly solo, so this is from that perspective. Also, while I did consult numbers and stats, my reviews are primarily based on the feel of the ship and my performance in her. This is of course a limited sample size, and is affected by my playstyle (which is generally fairly aggressive leading to occasional overreaches and a low survival rate.) Your mileage may vary depending on your playstyle and skill level. Tier 7-9 are the good part of this line. But once you get there, wheeee! With low hp and good armor, angling is key with these ships. If you don't know how to effectively angle, learn or you're not going to enjoy them. And from tier 7 up, I recommend a secondary build or hybrid secondary/survival build. They have fairly strong secondaries. From tier 6 up, and especially from tiers 8-10, the speed allows you to reposition quickly and flex where needed. Very mobile. Also, contrary to what I've seen people say, no ffs they're not HE spammers like British BBs were; use AP most of the time like your IJN, USN, and German BBs. The line in a nutshell: Note: I did not play tier 3 or 4 as i got Bretagne from mission. They don't matter anyway, it takes a few games to grind through a tier 3 or 4 and honestly, nothing can ever beat Orion. Tier 5: Bretagne is ok. Her guns are punchy af and very accurate, secondaries put out a lot of fire but suffer from her tier (since manual control of secondaries skill is only 15% improvement at tier t5). She handles like a drunk pig; slow and waddling, and her turrets take all day to turn, but once again, this is not uncommon at tier 5. But if you can stay angled you'll shrug off a lot of potential damage despite her low HP and her guns will decimate same-tier BBs or any cruiser. Tier 6: Normandie was garbage for me, the only ship I disliked. I usually love fast BBs but her turret firing arcs were punitive and I couldn't seem to mitigate damage well enough to compensate for her low hp. I free-XPed out of her after four games, which is very rare for me. Part of that was garbage teams and I got frustrated. She may be workable for you; I admit four games is not enough to get a good feel for a ship. Tier 7: Lyon is definitely not OP, but she's a lot of fun and certainly competitive. Her guns are a bit derpy dispersion-wise and you need to expose a lot of side to fire all of them, so you have to be good at timing and positioning to do so without getting wrecked. But firing SIXTEEN main guns downrange means you're going to get hits even with weird dispersion. Also, firing sixteen guns downrange never ever ever ever gets old. She's a keeper for me, which says a lot since two of my favorite BBs are in tier 7 already (KGV and Gneisenau) and I almost never keep three ships in a tier of the same class except for DDs. Tier 8: Richelieu is VERY fun, but quirky. With a secondary build she is the best ship I've seen at kiting; her secondaries are mounted in back and her firing arcs are very wide for good "over the shoulder" shots. Its tempting to bow-tank with all your main guns mounted on the bow, but I still recommend angling as you have a tendency to lose turrets when bow-on and with two turrets that cripples your DPS. Angling baits opponents to fire at your belt and your belt will shrug off most shots; bow-on means opponents will try and snipe your turrets. I play her as a lancer; move in at an angle, then time a turn when you have opportunity to minimize citadel exposure and pull back out, firing over shoulder while letting your 10+ km secondaries get in on the action. As such, kiting in this ship is a blast, especially since her turrets do have such strong firing arcs to the rear despite being concentrated in bow. Tier 9: Alsace is the jewel of the line and my new favorite tier 9 BB. She's wicked fast, has 12 undersized but accurate main guns (dispersion gets wonky near max range but from 11-13 km in they're deadly), her secondaries will merrily light fires and add damage, and her secondaries have more 360-degree coverage than Richelieu. She isn't very stealthy (although better than some BBs) but she has great speed to flex around the map, and she has low hp but if angled correctly can be very survivable. I don't straight up brawl with her as much as I do German BBs, but I do play her as a lancer much like Richelieu; charge in, then use speed to whip around and kite, staying near max range of secondaries and angled away from the enemy while lighting them up with 12-gun salvoes every 25 seconds or so. She is a BEAST. I'm honestly expecting a nerf to her; Alsace makes me look like a much better BB player than I am. Tier 10: I haven't played Republique but from everything I've seen in-game, plus heard from a couple friends who have her, I'm in no rush. She looks potentially fun but has a very high skill floor and will likely require a very good player with the right playstyle to consistently do well in her. I rushed to Alsace as I played her on test server and loved her, but I'm in no rush to get Republique. (Edit as of 4/3: I bought Republique about a week ago after trying her on test server and I was wrong. She's absolutely amazeballs. Still has a high skill floor but I clicked with her very well and she's as much fun as Alsace.) For players who like speed and ability to move around map, appreciate a ship that can brawl or mid-range fight with equal aplomb, and can maximize their armor angles and stay alive to kick [edited], this is a fantastic line. Cruiser players will love them; they play like oversized cruisers. Bon appetit!
  3. Richelieu is just so good to use! /^.\\ im enjoying her so much so recently that I uploaded my replays to replayswows.com and some of them got uploaded on youtube so you can actually watch them without having to download the replay, post battle results are shown at the end of each vid, videos may be ideal for commentating for anyone willing to go down the path of a WoWs yuotuber~ ^ this one surprised me with the high base xp because all I did was run away from my weak west flank then joined the friendly lemming train on the east for a bit and went ahead and got myself killed trying to sink the last guys, so I was away from the heart of the battle most of the time until the end. ^ this was a mild threatening broadside target rich match, divmate was very impressed. /^.\\ ^ I was convinced that this match was gonna be a loss until halfway through the match, only did I got desperate for kraken when I needed one more kill for it. />.\\

    Richelieu Missing Barbette Armor

    I'm uncertain if Richelieu second turret is suppose to have a barbette or not because practically every other battleship I have seen always have a barbette connected to the turret. The first turret has one which kind of further convince me that they missed the barbette on the Richelieu.

    Richelieu soon.jpg

    Hello everyone. New guy here. A preface: I have a penchant for ambitious, if not outright courageous military equipment designs. The Strv-103, Sweden's tank-with-no-turret. The MiG-25 Foxbat, a fighter jet made of steel. The 44-knot Alfa class submarine, with its lead-cooled reactor. And, not least of which, MN Richelieu. The French battleship with all-guns-forward. I love these designs with their oh-so-obvious shortcomings. They dare you to beat them. "Surely you can see my weakness, but exploiting it is another matter!" It should then come as no surprise that with Richelieu implemented in this game, I look forward to playing it, especially considering it has not been artificially crippled by some asinine "Siege Mode." I am not far from graduating from Lyon, and soon Richelieu shall be in my grasp. But I am very new to this game. The captain I am building so far has Priority Target, Adrenaline Rush, Superintendent, and Concealment Expert. As further evidence of how new I am to this game mere days ago, the very first french battleship captain I began, I gave him Last Stand. Ultimately I intend to add to this current captain Advanced Firing Training, Fire Prevention and Preventative Maintenance. When Richelieu is mine, I shall be conflicted in my choices for modifications. Shall I further protect the Main Battery with MAM1, or shall I try to protect Richelieu's plethora of AA and secondaries with AAM1? Is the slightly reduced fire and flooding chance worth it, or shall I plug in the Engine Boost mod I got in a supercontainer today? Shall I try to reign in the heinous dispersion of the French battleship with Aiming Mod, or shall I further commit to the secondaries by extended their range beyond 10km (I am leaning toward the latter, I play for fun)? The last two slots are obvious, at least. Without Basics of Survivability I definitely need DCM2 and Richelieu needs all the concealment it can get. There is limited utility in hemming and hawing over what I'll do WHEN I get the ship, but I am still in the honeymoon phase of this game, and wanted to talk to someone about it. Clearly I am leaning towards what you would call a hybrid secondary/survival build, hoping to flank enemies with Richelieu's great speed, decloak at 13km and close to within secondary range of hapless foes (hopefully)
