Just tried her out.  She still seems pretty solid.

Also, is Republique a good upgrade from her, or not worth it?

Reload increased 2 seconds, signal decreased from 1.7 to 1.6.

Republique is a nice ship. Very unique TX playstyle for a battleship.

Thanks.  For somebody who really enjoys Alsace's secondaries. . . would you say I would enjoy Republique also?

I am unsure. I never played either as secondary build as they get shredded if you are in a position to get farmed by an HE cruiser.

Republique's secondaries does not need IFHE to pen the hull of the ships whereas the Alsace does for its secondaries

Alsace is just fine despite the DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM people proclaim.

 

Republique is good to go but some do not like her atypical BB arrangement.  The faster reload of the guns is awesome but 8 max shells down range by them is pretty underwhelming.  If RNG doesn't bless, Republique is way off.

Alsace seems to be squishy now.  Rapid fire on her citadel seems to really bleed off hp.  Something's changed more than guns.

Alsace hasn't been altered in her citadel, armor since her introduction.  French BBs have citadels to protect, always have.  Eventually they are also coated with 32mm armor all over their hull, deck, bow, etc.  32mm armor is what HE spammers like.  203mm by default will HE pen 32mm armor.  IFHE + 152mm guns chew through that armor for HE pens.  IJN 100mm + IFHE devour that armor like it's sushi.

Republique is just.....another kind of ship.

He is good, but in a different way. Four less guns do mean that you need to aim much more carefully in Republique. On the other hand, while Alsace almost need full boardside to use his AP, Republique AP pin through most ship in nearlly any angle as long as you can land them.

Love Republique but it's different than Alsace.  I rebought Alsace, which I've never done for any other T9.

Completely agree.  As for secondaries, I kitted mine out for range to also increase my AA umbrella and does fine. IFHE is a pick-per-taste sort of thing on her.  I generally am always shooting so I went with it over concealment.

Republique is a great secondary build ship.   Lots of fun, and yes as others have said, very different to play.

Both are very fine boats. with good secondaries.  I have more 100K damage games in the Republique than in any other ship I also get more cit/multi-cit games in the Republique than any other ship I have played.  Approx 31 games out of the 75 games played total were over 100K damage and has my 2ND highest damage game ever 198,172.  The Alsace has the highest damage game for me 198,319.
