I would say in this order. Moskva, Shimakaze and then the Republique. 

Though I got the Shima first. Wanted to complete my IJN line of tier 10.....Also I am slow on getting the CVs too.

Repub, with 2ndary build but dont waste skill points on manual control for 2ndary armament.  Shima is a gimmick ship, easily overpowered.  I would normally say Moskva but something happened to this ship, I don't know what but it is really like paper now even when bow tanking.

Republique is absolutely incredible, I'd recommend it first, then moskva, then shima.

I agree with Republique, then Shima, then Moskva.  But one quetion I have.  What do you enjoy playing most.  That is probably what you should go with first.

Agreed. It's quite common to get these French ships in situations where both sides can be firing.

Well, if you like to sneeki breeki cheeki peeki and fling torpedos at people, Shimakaze.   If you like to spray chrome paint onto your mouth, shout "SOYEZ TEMOINS" and leap at people with explosive spears, then you'll want the Republique

Yamato, Z-52, Hindenburg.

 

Actually Harekaze is my favorite but that doesn't really help.

At tier 9 in each line. As usual I will have the XP before I have the credits since I don't sell ships. Any recommendations? I enjoy all classes except CVs.

Moskva and bask in soviet bias. Bow tanks better than a Yamato.

Republique will actually make you money if you put the premium camo on it.

Shimakaze is nerfed into useless slag..when Yugumo is better than shima, when Asashio significantly outperforms shima... you know you should not bother with shima. Since it is not Russian it will not be fixed anytime soon (if ever).

No it doesn't.  Moskva only has a 25mm bow.

They are all good, very different ships, you must have a preferred ship type ?

I would say my preference was Cuiser, DD then Battleship but as of late I have been avoiding Cruisers because of the increasing number of teams suffering from Flank Collapse Disorder.

On dirait des sadiques de Borderlands.

 

Personally I would go in this order :

 

1- Republique: she's not like your regular BB but that doesn't mean she's bad. 8 guns with high accuracy, high AP damage but also high fire chance when someone is bow on and quick reload. I was first kinda sceptical about her 32mm armor but she's not as weak as Izumo. Sure you will get some huge HE volley but the ship has decent manoeuvrability and with FP, you don't really suffer from fire. 

 

2- Moksva : When angled this ship is just trollish. Yeah concealment is garbage but for a cruiser she's actually quite fast (35kts) and the guns are great. You can punish broadside with AP or set ships on fire with HE. On top of that you have radar to force DD to leave their smoke.

 

3-Shimakaze: Since Shima has received a concealment buff she's pretty good against other T10 DD. You will outspot pretty much every DD except lower IJN DD. But her torps has meh concealment and it takes ages to reload. It's basically hit hard or completely miss. You rarely get something in between. She's not bad but just too situationnal. Well I still enjoy her but for competitive a Gearing or Z-52 will probably be a better pick
