She's a beauty and she's a beast.

I dislike high tier meta but this ship makes me want to play it.

Just makes you a guy not interested in yet-another-BB-line like myself. Nothing wrong with that.

ST only camo. We get a small allotment of them as thanks for our work.

It's too much for me. I dip my toe into Yamato now and then, but every time I play a tier 8 ship, it's a repeat lesson in humility. It's okay, though - the vast majority of ships I really like to play are at tier 7 or below.

The camo collector in me just died a little inside. It looks pretty tho.

I do enjoy her, I just wish I felt I was sailing more of a battleship and less of an RNG slot machine...

There is something about the Alsace an the Gascogne that just takes a lot of pressure over playing either ship.  Is it they are adequately fast, seem to bounce rounds nicely, all turning functions feel smooth, or just that they feel predicable?  Not sure but I've been enjoying both.

It scales and tiles particularly nicely on Yamato.

Other than my stellar first battle with her...

...I am struggling with her. There is much to like with this ship and it feels like I will keep a tier IX BB for once.

I went for a somewhat enhanced secondaries but not full-out (rg 8.3 km) and with improved fire setting they are effective.

It took me a while to click with it but now that it is upgraded and I have learned how to aim with it so I actually hit I love the ship.

this boat should be the tier 10.  the republique is weak sauce.  

It's a little early for me to agree on that, we have to see how this goes with more battles.

 

It's hard for me to get a feel of Republique when facing her because so few have adopted her early compared to GK and Conqueror.  I've seen Republique twice in PVP only.

As for Alsace, I like mine.  The guns do make you work harder though.  Tier IX BB with 15" guns and the implications that brings.

Love the secondaries though:cap_rambo:

Issue I had with Alsace the most was grinding out the modules, theres few BB stock grinds as bad as Alsace for just sheer uncomfortablility.

They are appreciatively good targets even with their torp damage reduction. Last night, a 3 men division from clan 007, 2 DDs plus a Alsace, going into A on Land of Fire. Alsace was engine boosting to keep up with the division's 2 DDs. 

All-skill-no-luck-predicted-torp-salvos on the Alsace, 5 hits, Alsace sunk by a tiny wittle Benson 2 min into the game. 

 

Good botes, lure their captains into believing speed can save them from torps. 10/10 would torp again.

Worse than old stock Amagi? :Smile_hiding:I FXP'd my Alsace Modules.  Cheap since I had the ShipXP already from Richelieu to unlock her.

I feel like this falls more on the captain than the boat though :cap_tea:

I don't include grinds that have been removed from the game, mostly because its no longer a grind. :)

old stock amagi Ashitaka is still every bit as horrendous to play, even when downtiered to T7, she could really use a boost to QoL via Type 91 shells or perhaps inceased Manoeuvrability, perhaps even giving her the T8 module slot and allowing her to mount steering gears mod 3 as well.

One game in Random so far, in which I potato'd. But been warming her up in Coop, and she's monstrous. Really looking forward to more games in her.

Send invite if you need div mate....
