Post your pics here for the pinnacle of the French BB line, the love child of the Iowa and Bismark!

Last one is amusing. Mahan shown up and I killed him with the secondaries. Blys showed up 30 sec later. He immediately smoked. Secondaries got one salvo off before he disappeared. 10 sec later, voice announcing he died. Only 1 shell hit, but that was enough. Lol. Then it was open season on me. Can't go wrong with the secondary build.

I love that ship. The guns just sing, and the AA plus secondaries are sick.

:Smile_great: This ship reminds me of the Bismarck with the secondaries. I loved it in the PT Server runs. I am still trying to grind up in getting this ship. I hope WG didn't mess with the ship's stats much.

Was that game before or after they nerfed the sigma to 1.7?

The developers announced a change for the Alsace sigma from 2.0 to 1.7 back in December 2017. So I assume this match in the video is the 1.7 sigma version.

Considering the  max dispersion is 265m vs 314m for the richeleiu, 1.7 sigma is tolerable.

I agree. The only biggest thing to worry about with this ship is the HE fire spam. The commander skill and signal flags should help battling that condition

Well it's 265m  @ 20.3km for Alscae and the 314m is @ 25.3km for Richelieu. What would Alsace's dispersion be if it could shoot to 25.3km?

I have a 38% hit rate in Richelieu but am now down to just 30% in Alsace. The ship is just horribly inaccurate. They are the same guns on the 2 ships but for whatever reason Richelieu is far more accurate. The guns are still wonky but get close and they hit stuff and even occasionally at range they return a good salvo. Alscae is just wiff, miss, wiff, miss, wth???, wiff, miss....

Interestingly Alsace has the same max range and dispersion as FDG = 265m @ 20.3km.

Aslsace has 12 guns and a 1.7 sigma and FDG has 8 guns and a 1.8 sigma. I play them both very similar, with secondary builds, and within the same basic ranges and I have a much better hit rate with FDG. FDG is not exactly known for being accurate either which speaks volumes as to just how inaccurate Alsace is.

I prefer my Tier IX French girl with a submachinegun (Secondaries Build).  Or to be more exact, with submachineguns.
