What is your thoughts on T6 French DD Aigle given out for free via missions? 

personally i never say no to free stuff, but given how bad the ship really is, it feels like the DoY where you get a few million credits for free. it's nice to have but really gets no one excited...

My reaction can be summarized:

"I'll take it cuz it's free, Thanks...I guess?"

I hope it's a little less grindy than DoY. But yeah, can't say no to free stuff.

I hope it's a LOT less grindy. DoY was [edited]painful and not fun at all to get.

What do you mean by this?  It's a tier 6 DD.  Its competition is ships like Gaede, Hatsuharu and Gnevny.  What were you expecting?

It's got very good speed, gun DPM and hitpoints for a tier 6 DD and is balanced out with poor maneuverability, concealment and traverse speeds.  It's basically a tier 6 Kiev and that probably means it's fine.

It's far from a tier 6 Kiev, base speed is only ~36 and only reaches 43 knots with speed boost, and it's gun arcs are like USN floaty gun arcs making long range shooting completely pointless.

Let me get this straight World of Warships is giving me a free ship if I choose to grind the mission, good news!!! I am afraid the ship will suck and not worth the grind.  MMMM sounds like two choices grind for the ship just to have it in port even if it sucks or don't bother grinding it...

What is the old saying about gift horses

Just because two CCs say its bad, doesn't mean it's bad. It depends on how the player sailing it uses it. Like LWM said Kransy was trash, but it really isn't. Numbers mean nothing really when it comes to these meh ships.

LWM's "mehbote" designation is, in her own words: "An average ship.  Has strengths and weaknesses.  Doesn't need buffs to be viable however she's not going to be considered optimal."  To me, the phrase "doesn't need buffs to be viable" generally doesn't gel with your statement "given how bad the ship really is."

 

Also, didn't Flamu say the Musashi sucked too before releasing another video a week later where he said it was overpowered?  I'm not sure I give a whole lot of weight to his ratings.

I'm pretty hyped actually.  The Aigle is the kind of ship I really want to have, but not the kind I want to pay for.  So it's a win win for me.

What are the requirements?  I'm a casual player, and the last few "free" premiums have been specced far out of reach for an average player who can't log in and play ten games a day.

and I watched a Flambass game play..(I think it was the final version not a WiP) and she looks fine. So I think I need to give her a try and let's see how she works for me :Smile_teethhappy:

Don't know so far I think this is a kind of speculation based on the 0.7.1 Video, + there is a mission called "Eagle has landed" in the February Briefing...

Nope.  He said it wasn't as good as the Mo.  The Mo made more money, was a better all around ship, and had radar.  + while it is a sister ship of the Iowa, it does play differently.    The only thing going for the Mu is it's a tier 10 ship at tier 9.   You play the same way you would a yammy. 

 

+ they buffed the reload at one point for the Mu, making it even stronger than it was before.  

 

I would say the argument most people made was is it worth getting?   The argument was never was the Mu good, but is it worth getting over a yammy or the Mo. 

 

 

as for this ship in question.  I feel meh about it.  It could be fun to use.  worse case, i can use it as a trainer for my future Fr DDs.

Aigle is probably meh, but i'm sure i'll enjoy her more than Shinonome.

 

It's a French DD and it's free. What other reason do I need?

If it was a gift - free and without strings attached, sure.

But WG is notorious for offering free things that require hours and hours to get.  Now, if the hours and hours are fun then it's a bonus added onto to a good time.  When the bonus is meh and the grind makes you not want to play the game, then it's work.... and not free.

This exactly. If you get a "free" ship for just playing the game, in other words based on damage or xp, then fine. My problem is with the missions to get the "free" ship. Shoot down 30 planes, get 25 torp hits with ship torps, get 10 citadels, etc just get annoying. I want to play what ships I want and when I want, just let me alone to play the game. Then you get the really annoying missions like "be the first to spot a British ship with a German ship" or "Spot 10 torpedoes fired by German ships with a British cruiser"...  They get pretty bothersome, just make the requirements based on xp, damage, sinking ships, etc and let us play what we want to play.

Right?  Not many people complained about the Albany despite it being a total turd.  Why?  It was a gift.  People complained about the Duke here A LOT.  Why?  ^^^^

Remember the ARP ships? Grind out X-amount base XP. And people complained about those free ships too. It can't get easier than that
