According to Octavian tonight on the EU livestream, WG is changing France’s name to République. The other 2 names they were considering was Napoleon and Charlemagne.

Actually I think I like that name change to be honest!

I like Napoleon.  Did France use prefix for warships like USS or HMS?  VSOP or XO would go nicely with Napoleon.

Golly gee do I ever like the idea of her name being the Charlemagne.

 

Then at the end of the match you get access to a consumable to splits your ship into 20 smaller versions that epically fail you and guarantee your empire... I mean team... fails.

I honestly had no problem with the old name. But I digress, Republique is a good replacement name, as well as the other two choices they were considering.

Completely expected response. 

It helps prevent confusion~ 
"I had a great game as France"  
"Which ship?"  
"France"  
"Yeah... which one of their ships?"

I saw the SS France passenger liner in the '70's.  A big ship.  In the Black hull, red funnel livery that won the camo painting contest.

So yes.  Change its name.

Oo-la-la, French BB names are so fancy.

Sounds sophisticated because you don't pronounce half the letters in a word.  :Smile_teethhappy:

Now they need to change John Doe's name to something less lazy.

My feeling is the devs were blind sided by the removal and that they are working of a permanent replacement name, hopefully a real US captain.

I definitely like the change. Napoleon and Charlemagne would've been nice too, but I suppose we can just imagine that those are the other ships in the class.

The removal of Seagal. At a guess the devs knew he would be leaving but didn't think it would be so soon so they had nothing ready.

Napoleon was a tyrant.  History has just been a bit kinder to him than to some others.
