I know I am really, really, really bad with DDs. I am so bad I bet I could have the best DD player try to train me, and the they would scream and quit the game.

That is how bad I am with DDs:cap_haloween:

The First reviews of Aigle came out in November with T-61, Abruzzi, and Ashitaka. She recently reviewed again, about two weeks ago, but I am surprised she'll be free. I'll take it though.

I see there is a new earnable premium coming, a DD called the Aigle.  What do we know about her?

Go to YouTube use the search function type in French DD Aigle, then watch the multiple videos Aigle has a different game play style than most DD's.

Aigle is a US Russian DD hybrid like ship.

its even better to know that I don't need to spend money to get the ship, through time is still needed to be spent on getting her. /;^_\\

Hey man. Found you on here. 

We don't know what the missions are yet, so we don't know if you'll need those flags.

Dasha clip. A special mission for DD's that comes with tomorrows patch.

Sounds like it will be earnable through missions, but it is also quite possible that it will be available to purchase during the French BB missions and make the completion of those missions simpler (based on past Warships events anyway). Just a guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it's set up.

nope. There will be a DD only mission to earn her. Watch the clip starting at 1:40

Yo. Hopefully the time limit for the mission is a decent length, the old lady is going to give birth any day now. I'll still be able to play, especially if I take a week of paternity leave. Now that I think of it, i'll be able to grind all this stuff out faster then normal actually, lol.

Hey, I can change diapers between rounds. Just can't play too much, she'll get pissed.

Oh ok.  I haven't watched the update clip yet.  Will give it a look at lunch.

It seems to announce the fact of the mission without describing exactly what's involved. Evidently they want to keep us hanging in suspense until tomorrow!

I haven't been particularly interested in French ships so far, but hey... if it's premium, it's winnable and it comes with a captain, some points for him, and a port slot, why not try for it? :Smile_playing: And she's Tier VI too, so she's good for Science of Victory missions. My guess is they'll use her as a way to get more players into French ships; playing through or early-unlocking the battleships might feel more worth it if you've already snagged yourself a premium to train your captains up in (never mind that she's got a somewhat different ideal skill set; there will be plenty of people who can live with that compromise.)

Normally they don't give a Premium of an upcoming line for free. The Aigle is probably like the Graf Spee, an odd Premium that they don't know how it will be the reactions to her playstyle. Graf Spee ended up being competitive, and I think this one will, too. Even Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya ended up being a competitive Premium,  and that is a good thing. No one would want a Krasny Krym anyways.

I suspect a similar fate is in store for Cossack, then. IMHO they'll use the next few months for an attempt or two at rebalancing and then release her into the wild to take her chances. (I could easily be wrong, of course, but would be delighted to be proved right.)

It's actually Mo as in Missouri not Miss as in Mississippi. It's kind of important seeing how US BB's are named after states to keep the abbreviations correct.

I was thinking, if they wanted to give away a free Premium, it would have been Cossack. She has an identity crisis right now. She is definitely no torpboat, but her qualities as a gunboat are meh at best, the horrid arc of her Y turret ensures that. The buff she needs is in the gun arcs and a little more torp range, then she will be good to go. Her torps hit sufficiently hard and has a decent speed, the number of them is lacking but some can make her work, even more now that she is being designed as a scout a la Kidd.

I doubt the Cossack will be free. A Tribal? For free? Even one post-refit, sign me up.

Precisely. They knew it will be a great deal to give her for free. Is the first Tribal-class, a ship the British-lovers were waiting for since Closed Beta. Those 3x2 are a great deal, even if she has only one torp launcher.
