Not long ago I came on here and talked about my initial experience with Republique, and how I was underwhelmed.

Having played her for a bit now, I can now say I was totally wrong about her.  I just finished a 312k damage game for 2,700 base xp.   I'm going to say I'm ok with her as a Tier 10.  LOL

It’s all about the guns.  I had similar experience, the ship felt underwhelming at first, but quite impressive in the long run.  It’s too bad the legendary upgrade is unimpressive in comparison to, for example, Yamato one.

After reading about the French BB line I decided to grind it. And I will say I am surprised how much i like it.

Still would have preferred both turrets in the front like the other four battleships France actually built

No arguments there.   I’d also prefer it if the 127mm secondaries didn’t get shaved off so easily.   But C’est la vie.  The 152s do some decent damage without them.

Frankly, having current turret arrangement is part of balancing for this particular BB.  If it had both turrets in front it would have been nerfed in some other way, most likely having reduced rate of fire.

I don't think anyone's legendary is as good as Yamato's. lol

Had the exact same experience, underwhelmed at first. Now she is my top damage dealer, even more than my beloved Yamato, and equally loved Massachusetts. Perhaps we just learned to play her better?  True at least for me, but I'm just an average to below average player.

That's my only real issue with the Republique's secondaries: they get destroyed so fast, even with the Auxiliary mod. Maybe they should get a HP buff like GK's main turrets got one (40000 vs 20000 HP in that case)? Perhaps module health would get another look come the CV rework.

I love Republiques, they citadel so easily.  They are great number padders in my Yamoto.

I feel the same about the Yammies when I am in my Republique...  :)

I was sold on it the other night when I citadeled a Conqueror at 4km with a Republique.  Granted it was being driven by a bot, but still...

That’s likely because of the legendary upgrade, ironically, due to the enforced range.  Way more scared of cruisers of any iteration than Yamatos... except for that rare counterflanking Yammie, anyways.

Yamato is the ship you worry about in the Republique because they hit you for 10k+ no matter how you angle.
