When I saw this announcement I had to wonder what the heck in going on over at Wargaming. The Republique is the top performing T-10 Battleship....why is Wargaming adding a second T10 Battleship.....especially a paper ship that has no historical significance? I also have to wonder why a minor naval power and one of the weakest countries of the second world war being given so many monster ships? Is this dropping any pretense that this is a game based on historical ships to a conversion to pay to win and a cash grab by wargaming?

What does Republique and its performance have to do with releasing a new ship?  I can understand complaining about the new ship being weak or OP but what does Republique have to do with it?

Hopefully not. Hoping for coal like Salem. Steel just blocks out too many players. It's a bad idea (ie; steel not your post).

Yea same... Its clear that the BB's are what drives sales cause even the cruisers are technically "BBs" lol. 

I remember reading in a Q&A that there are no Free XP DD's planned for 2019, so well prob be waiting a while..

I could understand if a ship was under performing a different ship might be warranted. The Republique on the other had is the top performing T-10 battleship by a decent margin and now there are going to put an even more powerful T-10 into the game?

I enjoy cruisers, and BB. but yeah even Alaska is just a BC, mascarading as a Cruiser, it's quite funny.

Looks at Schornhost in port, I guess I'm not helping things am I?

WG nerfs the Alsace and a little while later we get a T10 Alsace with pre-nerf stats and reload booster...I feel my tinfoil hat calling for me.

Yep....having massively overpowered ships limited to steal means only a few top clans are going to get them, further widening the competitive balance.

Reload is basically Republique levels and from what I saw of the dispersion it looks improved over pre nerf Alsace. I would say it is 1.9 for a sigma on the new T10? They need to do something as Flambass mentions to compensate for it having the smallest guns by far and the lowest HP pool by a LOT. Don't care thou8gh I still want it. LOL

The French had a powerful navy during WWII, the only problem was that they lost the land war before they could be put into action. The actual capabilities of said navy are why the British fired on their former ally and why the Germans allowed them to remain armed rather than dismantled under Vichy France.

> weakest countries

France had a comparable force. The Maginot Line was stacked so deep that I don't think even modern armor would withstand the barrage.

They made presumptions about where the Germans would attack and paid for it. They were weak strategically but so was virtually every mainland European nation at the time.

Having a T9 and T10 French BB premium in test simultaneously, while they got a T8 earlier in the year and have a T6 already is pretty perplexing. Then again though, WG released Kronshtadt and Stalingrad in short order.

 

WG - or the playerbase sales metrics - love BB premiums. At the moment announced ships include:

  • BB - Dreadnought, Prinz Eitel, West Virginia, Vanguard, Jean Bart, Bourgogne (6)
  • CA/L - Charleston, Wichita, Alaska (3)
  • DD - Le Terrible (1)

Of those Alaska is at the big, heavy end for cruisers and Charleston and Dreadnought are largely irrelevant (in game, T3 prems are low value).
