The alsace sigma is very poor with a shocking sigma of 1.6 lowest of all bb in the tier 9 grind ships.  If the average of all the tier 9 grind ships is 1.8. That needs to be reviewed

The Richelieu at tier 8 is on 1.8  and the Republique on tier x is 2.0 how do  you justify a tier 9 BB on 1.6 sigma, its disgraceful

It has the most guns in its tier with a "not heavily nerfed" reload speed and it is also one of the fastest BBs in its tier?

Republique has the fewest guns in its tier, while also having a fast reload speed for shells that overmatch 30mm plating

Richelieu and Republique have a higher sigma because they have less guns and need the sigma to be balanced relative to their tier.

A rough trend btw is that if you have a large number of guns on a BB relative to the competition, chances are your sigma is gonna be low to compensate (see Fusou, New Mexico, Lyon, Pommern, Wyoming, Gangut). Alsace follows that trend as well.

Richelieu has 8 guns on 1.8 sigma, still struggles to hit anything

Republique has 2.0 sigma on 8 guns, still just barely able to hit consistently 

Alsace has 12 guns on 1.6 sigma, and despite that, does not have the same issues the other two have because of the Shotgun theory: the more shells sent down range, the more likely something’s gonna hit

Also, when first announced, Alsace had 2.0 sigma, then got nerfed to 1.7 in testing, but was still considered the best FR BB (and best T9 BB) until getting nerfed to where it is now at 1.6 ( then just moments after that nerf Bourgogne got announced as a T10 Alsace with improved reload, 1.8 sigma, and reload booster)

And they nerfed her again with the IFHE reworks.

Secondary builds on FR BBs are pretty useless anyway, so it really wasn’t a nerf

And ignore everything else different about the ships. It’s why he said a rough trend not an exact rule, firepower is just one part of a ship that gets balanced in relation to the rest

Pommern laughs at your gripes.... try one and you won't feel so bad about Alsace. At least her guns when they do hit will do some damage and it'll actually reload in time to send out another volley.
