Congratz sir, well done!  How do you like it?  I've got one but have only logged 1 game.  It seems like a good ship though.

I have to earn ~138k XP before getting my hands on it. GG.

 

It's probably a stupid question but you're leveling a new commander for your Henri or you'll put one of your trained French commander ? 5 commander pts at T10 is suicidal

That Camo....

it ugly, but it will do, Rolkatsuki's discussion it not really worth to have the 5k doubloon camo unless you bring it out and like her like crazy, for example everyday

I didnt have enough credit to fully spec her out to my own play style yet, so she going to rest in port for now. General rule of thumb so far every French cruiser is good grind

i just got her, so i put a French commander into her for show. I dont have any premium French ship to train captain.

Previously when i got the StLew-ee, my captain start at 3 pts. My Hindy capt was 3 and i grinded her to 10 pts, so if i can get my hand on a premium French ship if not just a normal grind will do. It will not be that long once i got things together

Congratulations. I have liked the French Cruisers a lot so far. I am only to T7 (50%+ to T8) but have really liked them all except for the T6 which just lacks offense.

Had to go back to the Spee to build up cash reserves after the Halloween builds (2 of them) and will soon get back to the Charles M.  Will probably have to go between them as I am not good enough at higher tiers to make money every game.  I can buy the St Louis though - need more XP to upgrade though.

if you had the camo for the CM, or the Halloween camo, the CM is now a semi-premium ship

very good for the grind that needed

Or

the Missouri

I have the Anniversary camo - Free and Commander XP bosts.  The other camo (Type 18) is 3K doubloons and I have 2990 so Spee is still my premium ship for cash.  Not buying pixel ships for cash and 750K XP - get way to bored for the grind. 

CM is still insta-lose for me.  43.97% WR now after 3 losses last night.form 45.x% before.

First game tonight  - 11K damage and lost $61K.  Rounded a corner with a Bismark and 2 DDs, at least 1 DD, and a Iowa and Yammy - yeeee haaa.

If I am playing high tier BB, and if rounded the corner and I see a French cruiser, that will be my first targeting (or British cruiser), once that done, next will be the dd, most likely radar the dd, lastly working on the bb

So, if you play the CM, and rounding the corner, hang back let the fleet go ahead a little, make sure you hit hydro to help detecting torps just in case and expect to fire asap, CM AP round close range is VERY NASTY and yum yum

12K second game and lost another $45K.   Can't hit the broadside of anything in this thing and another loss in it,  I always hang back but try and support DDs and capital ships and works great in the Spee or any other French cruiser - in teh CM every decision is bad.  I should just stick with the La Gal.

EDIT:  No better with the St Louis...  At least my WR will be slightly higher than 50%.  Can get cits - can't kill a damn thing and avg damage 20K below server average.

Congratulations. The Henri IV is a lot of fun, and plays for me much like the Khabarovsk. Fast, great guns, agile. If you get one of the Engine Boost Mod 1 upgrades, the Henri should be high  on the list of ships to get it.

I like it...fast, nimble, good rof, sets fires very well, 9K torps that spread quite a bit.  Hydro is helpful.  The forward "spaced armor" lets you tank a bit against other CA's and DD's.

You can't yolo in it.  You attract a lot of focus fire.  I've had to modify my play style a lot to trying to find a spot to fire from defilade early, then move up once the battle is set.  Otherwise, I'm lucky to last 3 minutes.

IMHO the detectability is kind of a problem, even with CE.  It's easy to out turn the turrets.

I enjoy it a lot.

I liked CM a lot,  Saint Louis on other hand just seem more prone to being deleted.  can't wait to grind out as I have to play outside 15km and can't be aggressive at all.  i much prefer roon.
