Attention those who are friends of French BBs; today is your last chance to grab the Gasgone before it leaves the premium shop for an indeterminable amount of time (prays that a bundle for Kii with Koyobashi camo appears soon or an option to purchase it in-game becomes available). Personally, not real sure why both Gasgone and Roma got almost a month in the premium shop when two weeks had been judged sufficient previously and this would have allowed them to slip out an extra premium or two that I've been eyeing like a starving bear (T-61), but I guess if wargaming thinks that's the way to go...

Anywho, if you want one of the most memetastic boats in the game, better grab it before anyone makes another terrible pun about it.

Got Republique now.  It's like Gascogne on steroids.

No need for the Gas Can now.

Just hoping we get an exciting new ship in the Premium Shop to replace her.

I'm thinking of holding off on this one. In theory I should be able to pull her out of santa crates in December anyway, and I'm not all that jazzed about French BBs anyway.

Sorry to see it go, but it is out of my budget right now. As are most of the Premium ships.

I skipped it after reading the mot-so favorable reviews (LWM's comes to mind).

No big loss to see it go.

some premium ships that were supposed to follow were postponed for testing purposes ie T-61, Duca Del Abrugzzi, USS Mass, and one more that I can't remember.

A meh tier 8 BB that gets tiered up in the present MM environment all the time.... will it truly be missed?  So “passer”, and please put something good in the shop.

I watched a Notser video the other day,  and if Notser is right, the T61 has been shelved, and we may never see it. :( 

A ship I was really looking forward to getting. total bummer.

Couldn't care less about the Gas Can, the only French BB I'll never worry about having. I love the French BB line, it's one of the best lines to grind from start to finish imo, but Gas Can is just a floating meme that doesn't really bring anything new to the table. I already got the République, so even if had bought the Gas Can for whatever sick reason, I'd not be using it at all. I'd just suggest everyone to focus on the tech tree ships instead (because they are amazing) and if you want something like the Gas Can, either get the République or buy the Tirpitz. Either way it's gonna be more worth your while.

I gotta say, I really dislike the Gascogne.  There hasn't been a single mission where I didn't find myself screaming at the screen, "F#$K these guns!"

Thanks for the warning. I’ve had mine for a while, it’s rather mediocre and could use a few small buffs to bring it up to the level of the other Tier VIII BBs. Every salvo is a slot machine pull (moreso than any other ship that I can remember playing), and the turret arrangement and poor traverse speed make it a very uncomfortable gamble at that. She’s not without redeeming qualities, but the only things that keep me playing her are her novelty, and that sweet Joan of Arc skin.

*Insert rant about Wargaming not liking that a DD could be a threat to one of their precious baBBies*

I like mine. The speed is crazy for a battleship. The guns can troll the hell out of you, but they can also be devastating. I also dig the secondaries for the fires. Fun bote.
