I was mainly joshing you with the :etc_swear: BUT the sentiment was real.

RB is an abomination in the game, I detest it ,and will have nothing to do with it. It is bad enough ships get gated behind Steel and Competitive play (although this is changing now thank god) but now we have RB.

WG needs to stop with the special ships behind special modes and such. 

Also, I have every single line in this game done to T10 (I have the XP waiting on Riga for Petropavlovsk) and I have tons of resources on hand. I am WG's target player with that mess called Research Bureau. There is no way in HELL I am regrinding even one line, 1 time, let alone multiple. It is just a horrible idea gating ships behind that requirement.

So I object to any ship being placed in there as it gates it off from me. I really wanted Ohio but no chance I do RB. I am pretty interested in FDR and maybe Slava but if they put them in RB I have no shot at them as I won't jump through the asinine hoops required to get them.

Sorry for getting salty with you. Was meant more to be funny but if it came off nasty I apologize. :Smile_honoring:

I would rather have Bourgogne in RB rather than steel. At least I could free xp my way through RB.

It was once upon a time going to be an alternate to Kreml and maybe even the T10 of a line split. Who knows if that still holds true?

If they put it up for RB then they have no shame and have gone back on their word.- not like we can do much about it.

I think it is the opposite, he is afraid of everyone getting it.

I wouldn’t say I’m afraid although I’m sure neither ship is going to be much fun to play against.

Honestly, as long as FDR's planes are as slow as a T4's it's probably less threatening than a Midway even if the alpha is higher.

Research bureau is the new baby. They are giving steel away like candy, so it won't be steel or coal.

Just keep grinding ranked if your clan is inactive. It takes longer that way, but Bourgogne is worth it! Getting her is still one of my proudest moments in WOWS. Granted, I do prefer Stalingrad in competitive modes, but Bourgogne is great fun and rewarding to play in randoms.

She was labeled as "special ship" per the latest intel on her, so its anyone's guess at this point. I personally hope she isn't going for steel because I would only be about 50% of the way to her given the 28-30k range she would likely be in. If she goes to RB, I'll just whale out the RPs I need in an hour or so playing co op. I personally think given her lack of armor and damage nerfs, she really isn't quite over the top enough to be worthy of steel ship status. Champagne is basically a T8 French concept of Slava. I used her almost exclusively to rank out and had a lot of good games. The thing is, you have to know how to aim at longer ranges or you're going to have little to no impact on the game because if you try to brawl, you're going to get bow penned and deleted by any other BB on the map, even ones 2 tiers lower than you. I'm really not worried about her guns being OP because as a BB main, I see many BB players on a daily bases that make me want to facepalm with how horrible their aim is.....AT MEDIUM AND CLOSE RANGES.

Speak for yourself on that one. Steel has always been easy to get for players in Typhoon and Hurricane clans. But for people like me in storm level clans or lower, its still a grueling grind to save for a t10 steel ship.

I’d prefer research bureau.  It’s one thing I can accelerate by playing more whereas steel or coal is more time based.

Not everyone.  I hope whatever form the FDR is going to come from, it happens a lot sooner than Christmas.

Tomorrow would be cool.

they can be slow, but you can upgrade their hp, reduce AA damage and so on...
