Good morning everyone,

Just a heads up that Aigle is available for sale in the premium shop, even though the portal hasn't been updated to announce it yet.

Curious to know what the 2x French Bonus Missions entail.  I'm sure we'll find out more when the main web site updates.

Most likely unlocks for the French BB line as they mentioned in the collection description.

Just picked her up.  Turns out the missions are only for a couple regular containers and additional commander XP boost.

Thats... disheartening, since it costs about the same as a Blyska :Smile_sceptic:.

I didn't think the missions would involve French BB's.....that's what buying the French containers are (potentially) for.  WG wouldn't intentionally sabotage one sale with another.

I'm ok with this though, as I've been waiting to be able to move my Dunkerque captain over to Aigle for retraining.  Silly me worked up a 16-point BB commander in Dunkerque for French BB's, only to realize that the new special French commander from the new collection will be a much better fit for the battleship line.... :Smile_facepalm:

You are right in that regard, I was thinking however that since the missions you get in the containers are for getting Tiers 6-8, they could add 2 missions for the Aigle that give access to the T4-5 BBs. That way it would still be an incentive and wouldn't undermine the normal container sale

I'd red flag buying the Aigle at this time - there is an 18 mission marathon to earn her.  Of course, in the usual style the mission set is only for Random/Ranked.   The marathon description says completed 18/26 of the upcoming marathon missions to earn the Aigle.  The Aigle will come with a 6pt commander when you earn it.  Looks like only 2 missions a weekend until 3/26. 

First two (expire 2/12)  -

Part 1: 1000 main gun hits 

Part 2 8 Citadel hits.

Oh crud, I think I'm going to be overseas for the last part of this. Let's hope the final phase opens early enough for me to finish it.

What are the restrictions on Parts 1 and 2? I got the idea that this was a destroyers-only thing, so citadels?

 

Never mind, just seen the link above. If these conditions are global across the servers and I only have to get eighteen of them, I might just manage it. Definitely keeping my Emerald for now.

It's only 23 bucks, just buy it... I'll still do the Aigle missions because I figure they'll give the credit value of the ship at the end if you already have it.

 

I bet they're going to have a final mission like the Okt Rev, where you have to get 1600 base xp on a win.

One of the missions is a 1750 base XP win. I can kiss that one goodbye. No hope at all unless I have an absolute miracle of a game.

I'll be out of the picture from 24 Feb to 7 or 8 March b/c of travel. Likely going to fail this one because of that alone, even without having to win all of the phases.

OTOH the opportunity is there to pick up a whole bucketload of flags and camo, so it's not all doom and gloom. :cap_cool:

Are you sure they're regular containers? WG has always used the regular container icon even for event specific containers.

Oh look! Let's get one of these! Some of those! A bundle of that!

All fun and games until you get to the checkout, and then your credit card goes to the toilet in its pants. :Smile_teethhappy:

Not sure at this point, Lert.  The mission tabs only show regular container icons in the port view, so I suppose it could go either way.

According to the link above.

Free ship doing mission,, why buy??? erm..

I want to get a head start on using her as a French DD trainer.  And I want the credits for her once I finish the mission, as I'm going to need them to grind up the French BB line.
