First match in one of the new French BB's. I was unable to get one of the missions for a head start so am starting from the bottom. Well, I did get a mission but it was as Corgi 115. :Smile-angry: I put an extra 3 point French cruiser captain on her but didn't spend any doubloons or credits to speed up the retraining.

I have the Turenne, and I like her so far (only one game), I am saving up the credits Courbet. And I have the Bretagne from a chest I enjoy the French line so far.

The only problem I see is the baguettes stacked all over the deck burn easily. :Smile_trollface:

Nothing personal, but I'm going to go ahead and disregard this anecdotal evidence. Her gun arrangement and range all scream "move on ASAP."

She takes damage like she's made of balsa wood. I had an Orion deal like 15,000 damage to me with 1 HE salvo and single 152mm HE shells from a St. Louis were hitting me like 12" AP normal pens.

Of course I will work up the line but for a tier 3 she is good.

Those were my stats with just 3 battles this is the ships stats from WT. It's the stats for only 17 battles it seems though. still 58.82 is good.

Oh, okay.  I thought those were global stats.  Still, yeah.  Congratulations, that's a number to be happy with!

59% is likely due to the fact that a number of experienced players are toe-dipping into the line at this point and crushing newer folks playing other trees/types. It will not hold. Dorja's evaluation is closer to reality - the thing is not robust.

Played it once last night.  It seemed less derpy, but more squishy than other T3s...

I put IFHE on her since the HE is so fast. I don't know about the upper tiers but the French BBs have a great big difference in shell velocity. Something that captains have to know about or they will have trouble aiming when switching ammo types. Tiers 5 and 6, HE 921 M/S, AP 780 M/S.

I am loving this thing. This time after putting the 10 point captain from the collection on her and once again still in retraining I did this in a tier 4 match.

Honestly i wasnt impressed with the Turenne. If you want to hit at the waterline you have to damn near aim at the mid-deck. Once i got to the Courbette the aiming went back to normal.
