If you're a French dd player she is good she has better than the average French concealment 7km , good AA and DFAA , Best dd DPM in the game....BUTTTTT , if you aren't use to smokeless DDs there will be a acclimation period...After that she is nice....

I've played the EU dds a bit, they aren't my typical DD playstyle (sitting in smoke spamming HE all day long) but they're fun.

I love my Marceau just saying a little over 6km concealment up to 7.0km will maybe take a few games to get used to.....she is very good after you get used to the difference.....I have a few videos on her also....good luck

You probably won't have time to get Massachusetts.  Yoshino is fun if you like cruisers.

Would wait for the skill rework if I were you, stuff that has alot of value now may lose it due it the blanket changes.

I got Marceau and now all I can get for coal it T-4. I did quite well in Marceau my first battle, it was Co op though. I kind of wanted the T-44 but went for Marceau for the Santa gift snowflake instead. Choose wisely.

Exactly what I was thinking. I presume he means Georgia.

t44 and the Neu?? try them or check info on them

all dd, BUT very different play style

t44 is different how you would normally play dd german line

the Neu is extremely challenging, so different on you normally play russian dd line

I am probably not gonna go for Neu, too expensive (and it would take me a long time to grind 296K coal), more likely Marceau, maybe Pommern or Salem... Probably won't do moskva and yoshino do to crappy armor.

Don't burn your resources for the sake of burning them.

 

It would be a shame if you dumped what was left of your resources into a ship you never cared for, and then a few weeks from now WG announces a new ship you are interested in, for a resource you just depleted yourself in.

I'm probably gonna wait 'till after the Mega Nerf to super cruisers and brawling BBs then see which ships are still playable, and then take it from there.

I have the resource coupon but i'm gonna use it on thunderer, and neustra is a "steel legend" ship so I can't use a coupon on it.

I find the rest of the coal ships are just ok.   Marceau would be at the top of the list cause Kleber is very good DD.  Marceu would be a good trainer for the french DD line.  I went with captains.

Like right now I am almost eligible for Siegfried from the RB.  I could speed it up and get the last few thousand I need and get her right now.  But I held off.  I want to see just how much the Skill Rebork is going to tear her up first before committing.  This was a ship I wanted before, but I had to cut off that eagerness because I knew what was coming down for her down the road... And it ain't pretty.

Skill rebork will ruin large cruisers, brawlers, and small CLs so yeah, holding off on those.

If players get together just like how the GC stuffs long time ago, and reject the skills re work and genuinely writing nice pieces of writing, maybe WG will listen in and not rolling it out. But first, testing it out in the PT.

You got the Slava yet?

 

I am also holding off and waiting as well, but I go for Slava
