As I near getting the Alsace I am wondering how it is post-nerf. Please vote. Thanks in advance.

On the surface the changes (reload 2 sec, 0.1 sigma) didn't appear drastic, but it was a discussed topic.

It'll be notably worse compared to pre-nerf, but most people still believe its good.

I lost heart to take mine out anymore, waiting on the T10 version of it to play that instead.

the 2 sec definitely is noticeable, at 32 second reload while everyone else has lower reload (Republic can get down to 19.7 second reload with legendary mod) and 21.1 without legendary mod,  it makes a difference.  The reduce sigma makes a difference also; but I still like the ship (secondaries are a BEAST)

Inaccurate as hell while still sporting guns that most t8-10 cruisers can't get overmatched by. Almost a go secondary or bust at this point.

I'm enjoying mine. Just like with Mass, get close enough for secondaries, sigma isn't an issue.

If you have never played it you will not notice any changes, still an awesome ship!

Make no mistake, the new sigma might be garbage but the old sigma was almost as bad anyway. Shoot stuff on their sides and you stand a good chance of removing a chunk of their health. It has adequate speed and concealment to get in position to do that. The reload might be a bit slower but you get used to it.

The 0.1 sigma change is not really noticeable.  Just like before, you will have some games where some shots are tight and some are not.  The sigma is still good enough, especially at the ranges you should be playing at.  The 2 sec reload increase is more noticeable, but not enough to make the ship any worst.  Most of the time, you aren't firing your guns as soon as they cycle unless you are in a close up battle. The 2 second reload doesn't take away from the damage you can do when you fire the guns at the right target location.  The ship still handles great and the secondaries are wonderful.

I got mine very shortly before the nerf, You do feel the extra 2 seconds, but it's not a deal breaker by any means.

Loaded mine up full secondary and very rarely played it outside of 11km range, it was one of my better experiences with tier 9 BBs despite the nerf.

Thanks a lot guys.  Of all the tier IX boats I was most looking forward to this one.  I am glad to know I will still like it.  Loved the Richelieu and Lyon and totally hate the Fat Freddy.

Very nice boat - my best BB by far.  Never been easier to get cits for me and now has my highest damage game.  Did a couple battles pre-nerf so didn't really see anything different.  Play it right - it WILL treat you well.

Alsace is fine despite the drama queens.  This isn't a BB with troubled main battery reliability.  Talk to the German BB boys about that.  They got some choice words.

Aside from the 11k HP & secondary layout, the Alsace is a worse Richelieu a tier higher when bow on.

Still enjoy the Alsace tho the shine is definitely a bit duller post nerf.
