Take the Alsace out for the second time today hoping for my first win.

Load into Sleeping Giant, north spawn, far west.  Two DDs, the Chapa and I push west, the DDs getting A, while the two of us use our speed and push far south engaging the Red from the flank. 

We get lucky and find an AFK Atago and Colorado.  My main battery kills the Colorado and five seconds later, secondaries kill the Atago.

I push up to C, throw it in reverse and bow on enage the reds.  Their Alsace turns bow on to me and our secondaries and mains slug it out for however long it take to hit him with 52 main battery and 82 secondary rounds.  

During this time the reds have killed all but three of us and we whitled them down to two.  We are up in caps and points but, the Izumo has started to cap, our Gneisenau is slightly out of range, I am hurting bad, with the Donskoi wanting me dead.

I'm on fire, repair on cool down (had to put 3 fires out), low hp, and the Donskoi will get a salvo in before I reload.  

If I die, red can win.   

I go full forward, trying not to catch the full salvo, and hoping the fire doesn't burn me out in the next ~ 16 seconds.

My shots land and...

I'll take that for a nerve racking win.

Interestingly during gameplay it shows 117 main battery hits (111+3+1+2).  First Battle report shows 117 hits.  Detailed report shows 118 hits.

The game doesn't count Citadel hits into the number of hits ribbon. That 1 citadel is the difference you are seeing between gameplay and detailed.

Well Sans Peur you performed "without fear," congrats. I used up all my free exp getting the Lyon and Richelieu after getting Bretagne & Normandie with the event/mission. Very  much looking forward to grinding up to the Alsace.

Congrats! Sans peur, sans doute!

Impressive. With all the results I'm seeing from the Alsace I'm somewhat eager to get into her.
