Congrats on the ship in a Box.

Spoiler

My condolence on it being the Aigle.

I don't know if I should congratulate you or commiserate with you.

I mean on the one hand, you won something, YAY.  On the other hand, it is an Aigle.  WG must surely dislike you, perhaps even verging on hating you, to saddle you with the Aigle.

Maybe if you apologized they'd take it back and give you a good ship?

At least RNGesus is on your side!  Congratulations and i hope you get many more.

Yeah, I'm always happy to get something.  And Aigle is not a bad ship.

Oh there are FAR greater things to saddle someone with if they hate you like Aigle. Could have been Yubari or a few others that aren't great, or were great but don't survive well in the current HE/IFHE heavy on fires meta.

Interesting, I've got a stream going almost non-stop and often interact, haven't even got a container in a minute.

Thanks Wargaming!

Aigle is a nice ship, with decent ballistics, five rapid-firing fire-starters, and (only) 6 good, hard-hitting torpedoes. It is worst at detectability and turret traverse, making close-range engagements against destroyers quite hard, but it is pretty survivable. All in all, it is a good ship, and it compares well with apparently the other Epic Twitch Drop, the also-competent Admiral Makarov.

Even so, WG is just handing out Aigles for free, particularly via the arsenal. At least now the drop saved you an Oktyabraskaya Revolutsiya's worth of coal.

Indeed Aigile can be used to good effect, it just is different than some of its at tier rivals which can create problems if the Aigle player uses it the same as other DDs.

Cool. I got that ship from an event a while back. If the truth be told, I like it a lot better than the similar tier French DDs from the current event. The main reason is that it has a smoke generator, which is a good thing to have on a DD at tier VI.

Did you get this ship from a Twitch crate ... or was this just dropped into your account? Also, grats!

Oh, I agree that there are worse things in this game and world than the Aigle, but it is still bad.  It is all like choosing between a punch to the nose, paper cuts between your fingers, or a kick to the groin.  You don't really want any of them and they aren't exactly shared with those you like.
