PHILIPPE AUBOYNEAU\

every 2,000,000 HP of potential damage increases your ship's maximum speed by 8%.

 

So does this keep stacking is there a limit and is it permanent?

The argument can be made that if you are good enough to tank 4,000,000 or more damage and live, you don't need to go faster.

I dunno but that is a LOT of damage, so not sure it will matter, often or even ever.

Before you get too carried away talking about this new Capt and what it can do, go and actually read how you get him. It will take 2100 tokens. You can earn tokens...

  • complete all 44 directive missions of the 4 part event = 1610 tokens
  • place 50% or higher in the hall of fame = up to 1200 tokens (top 5% = 300 tokens / top 5-10% = 300 tokens / top 10-25% = 300 tokens / top 25-50% = 300 tokens)
  • complete combat missions with Mogador or Le Terrible = 200 tokens each
  • You can ONLY earn tokens during update 8.7 so 1 month to get enough by playing only.

That is a pretty significant grind and skill ceiling for a lot of people. This will not be a quick and easy event to get this Capt. AND you can't get him, without buying crates (see below), through play until after you complete part 4 AND the HOF finishes up. IF you get all 1610 from the directives, and also get the 400 for the 2 French DD's, that is 2010. You are still 90 tokens short of the needed 2100. So you either buy at least 1 premium crate or you have to wait for the HOF to end and hope you at least placed in the top 50%.


For those who just don't have the time, desire, or ability WG is offering premium crates that contain 120 tokens each. The image on the news site shows them in the armory for...

  • 1 crate = 1250 doubloons
  • 6 crates = 7125 doubloons
  • 12 crates = 13,800 doubloons
  • 22 crates = 24,750 doubloons.

In addition to the 120 tokens each premium crate also gives

  • 15X Dragon Flags -OR- 15X French Riviera Camo
  • 1 item/piece of the Legion Of Honor Collection
  • Chance at a mission for De Grasse/Aigle/Gascogne/Le Terrible - (if you have it already you will only get credit compensation)

Standard crates will NOT drop tokens. They will drop...

  • 1X Dragon Flag -OR- 1X French Riviera Camo
  • 1X Dragon Flag -OR- 600 Coal
  • 1 item/piece of the Legion Of Honor Collection
  • Chance at a mission for De Grasse/Aigle/Gascogne/Le Terrible - (if you have it already you will only get credit compensation)

I think it is per game (resets after every game).

Hey Chain_shot,

Yes, you can meet this requirement more than once in a match. You can find all the details about the new commander in the dedicated article: https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/game-updates/french-destroyers-part-2/

What do you mean by "is it permanent?" 

All of these talents can be activated multiple times per battle.

Was wondering if the ship then has a speed increase that is permanent by 8% after the match. So if I managed to do it like 4 times I would have a 32% speed increase every time I played that ship/commander.

NOT worth that grind. Just grab one of the Honore brothers from the armory. Both enhanced skills are useful for French DDs, *especially* Adrenalin Surge.

Worth is subjective.  If I am going to play the game anyway, I am going to get free stuff while I am doing it.

For sure. But you can either stress out on a nearly impossible grind for one reward ... or just relax and spend the tokens on other things that don't result in you getting a stroke from lack of sleep ;)

I will sleep when I am dead :Smile_playing::Smile_veryhappy:

It honestly doesn't look all that bad.  Getting in the top 50% of the HOF in any event isn't really a ton of play.  It only gets a little crazy in the top 5-10%.  Mostly due to a lot of players just saying "this is too hard" and not even trying.

Just thinking about permanent and winning it multiple times.

Eventually you'd have Jean Bart's chasing aircraft.

Auboyneau was much more interesting before the nerfs ... I would still like to get him for my Aigle, but don't think I'll be grinding that much. 

Good luck to all the "undead" (cough, Burnsy, cough) ... :Smile_teethhappy: :Smile_honoring:

Have to find ways to convince you to buy $100 worth of crates every month. :cap_yes:

Today's "big announcement" means I'm pretty much going to ignore the upcoming grind.  Not worth the time/effort given the bleak future of the game.

The IJN is badly in need of more unique commanders, this snake-oil frenchman capitan ain't so high on the priority list.
