I can’t be the only one who isn’t interested in the slightest by the French BBs

I’m just not interested based on stats known so far. Speed boost is just useless on a BB. What I really want to happen is the US cruiser tree split, I want my cleaveland to go to it’s proper place at tier 8 so much more than another boring ship line. But we will probably have to wait months before they release the cruiser line split, as they delay the French BBs even further.

I wasn’t until I tested one on PTS still not totally sold on it. Speed boost is useless I can attest to that.

Agreed, more interested in US cruiser split and British DDs.

To each their own I guess... I think the French BBs look interesting, even if the speed boost is nerfed from the CAs.

What draws me in mostly isn’t the gameplay but the looks of the high tier boats (Richelieu-France). I figured I will make do with whatever their playstyle is. 

 

Oh and WG has one more patch cycle to do whatever last minute change so wait and see.

Well, I'm far more sold on the idea of fast BBs capable of keeping up with cruisers and with small guns that won't do anything at longer ranges than I ever was in the braindead HE spamming UK BBs. Speed boost doesn't do much in terms of extra speed, but it improves the acceleration, making it a good tool for torpedo beats. What I like about speed boost is that it's the type of consumable you can give to a BB without making it broken, unlike radar or german hydro. It's just a simple tool, and outside that what you have is a normal line of BBs, which is great after so many annoying gimmicks they put in these recent BB lines.

I figured their thing would be abnormal acceleration that would be super boosted by the speed boost. That and reasonably quick reload times. So ideally BB that can move around rather quickly in a pinch. Not sure if that will help avoid shells and torpedoes though.

It's the other way around for me. I have no interest in the US split line but I'm a bit interested in some French BB (Richelieu and Alsace )

Whatever the French and Italians do is of interest to me. If you are tone deaf to history or suffer from bias an education can help.

The only French 'Battleship' I have any interest in is Brennus; so Mikasa won't be so lonely anymore.

Beyond that I have seven ships from Christmas containers and other places I haven't even played ONCE yet...

...what need have I for French battleships?

I'll agree to disagree...very strongly.

I just like the look of Richieliu and Alsace so I'll probably try to get them for that reason but no otherwise Im not too interested.

Not every new content will please everyone. Personally I'm not interested in Pan Asian ships.

Richelieu is a beauty, and a ship I need in my port.

Was excited until things started to get leaked. I went from 'cant wait' to 'might grind at some point'. Speed boost is stupid. 32mm armor all over means they're all going to burn like a California wildfire. Good sigma values but shotgun like dispersion. Tier 10 looks very uninspired. I don't know, the tier 8, 9, 10 all just seem rather bleh. The ships look good but stat wise nothing stands out at all compared to other lines. Very lazy in that department.

Same here pard. WG said that this was in the works back in '16. Plus, for claiming to be "concerned" about the BB overpopulation they're sure doing a lot to encourage BB play.

My only interest in the French BBs is how flammable are they?  :Smile_playing:

/sarcasm There's more Cruiser lines then Battleships lines in-game.  If anything, they should erase a few to balance them out with Battleships.  It's only fair.
