République is really growing on me

Never had any desire to play French BBs, but first WG gives me mission for Richelieu and then they release that really good looking Paris skin.  I could not bring myself to pay for the other space skins, simply because I purchased Type 20 camo for those T10s that could have a space skin in my port prior to this whole space event.  So, I got République just so I could sport the one space skin I ever purchased.  But, the more I played it, the more I liked it.  I am liking BB that I never wanted in the first place, over something like Yamato that I was grinding hard to get.  Anyone else had similar experience in game?

Truly an amazing and comfortable BB. Glad you’re enjoying it and think many others would if they made the grind.

France is my favorite bb line. From tier 7 and up they each have very special and unique features. You go from shotgun 16 gun broadside, to forward turrets, to god, then finish at republique. The secondary battery, fast reload, engine boost at tier 10... it's all lovely

 

Color me hyped for Borgogne

I do like it a lot... and I want to be good in it but I do suffer with it a little. I know what I'm supposed to do with it- I'm just not always able to produce.

Not a BB guy but the three I like the most, (ok 5 with NC and Missouri), are Republique, Alsace, Richelieu,

Republique and Alsace are my #1 and #2

Yamato is my other go to BB ever since I got legendary upgrade for her.  For me it's a tie between Yamato and Republique, with Missouri and Musashi next in line.

I am praying to rngesus that it is either coal or steel (free xp sure, but never heard of). If it's a cb or ranked (or other) reward ship, I worry I dont have the means to acquire it, as I never rank out and my clan usually only pulls storm.

they will need to find a way to balance bon jovi so she don't make republique irrelevant.

do a salem,nerf something from her and buff something else.

I suspect Borgogne will cost coal (Salem style), and Jean Bart will be free XP.  I would love to get both.  Sorry, Salem and Alaska will just have to wait their turn.

Oh man I hope so been hoarding as much coal and free xp as I can get my hands on just in case. T7 and up on the French BB line are my favorite battleships now. Been debating about getting the T10 camo for Republique or Montana and while Montana's broadside can be a blast Republique feels more consistent in punishing wiggling cruisers and she feels faster/more nimble. (Randoms I rarely play ranked and never play clan wars)

Yea, I got French crates when it came out, FXP'd to it immediately. Regretted both because I hated it.

But now, I like it, it's great at killing cruisers and pretty much handles like one.

I'm really enjoying Alsace.  I'm skeptical of Republique though.  Is it really that good with only 2 quad turrets?

It's a fantastic BB. My favorite T10 BB by far. Very smooth to play.

I hope WG doesn't mess it up with the other T10 Premium BB they may drop in the French line.
