Republique is ridiculously fun, and for some reason I do better with her than any other tier 10 ship I own even after 60 games to get past the 'low sample size' bump.

AFT is nice though in terms of boosting AA as well. My experience so far in this ship is very limited and is entirely in co-op; I played her once (I think) just before I went on holiday and that was my first game after unlocking her, and then a few times after coming back from holiday and I'm so rusty my tactical performance is awful and I can no longer shoot straight.

Very mobile. Broadside CAs, BBs, CVs, it does not matter. 0: 0: No posts have been made on this board. poeticmotion, March 6, 2018 in French Battleships. So for Alsace, IFHE is a no-brainer in a brawler build (and there are several viable builds for Alsace, but given my playstyle and the strengths of the ship, I strongly prefer a brawler build. The speed, agility, and ability to flank and catch the enemy team in a cross fire cannot be understated. In the beginning phase of the game it is hard to decide which warship types to develop. Filter by flair. A series of French battleships built in response to the appearance of British "superdreadnoughts". And aside from 25mm common plate, there is nothing the 127mm guns can pen with IFHE that she wouldn't otherwise be able to without it. Tier 5 is annoying. Tier 7-9 are the good part of this line. It's a bit too RNG-dependent to count on setting fires against BBs with your 100mm secondaries and they won't ever pen anything on a BB, but it's a nice bonus. By She's absolutely amazeballs. Lyon is hysterical. She shares the 3x3 152mm secondaries of Alsace, although 2 in front/1 in rear whereas Alsace is 1 in front/2 in rear. Battleships in World of Warships are what you play when you don't understand anything about actual naval warfare, and think they are the only type of ship ever used (This is a joke, but it's kinda true.) The 127mm guns have roughly the same pen without IFHE, 21.16mm armor, as the Alsace 100mm with IFHE. The bigger difference is she has 8x2 127mm secondaries in place of the Alsace's 100mm secondaries. Her sides were reinforced with vast armored areas. I don't straight up brawl with her as much as I do German BBs, but I do play her as a lancer much like Richelieu; charge in, then use speed to whip around and kite, staying near max range of secondaries and angled away from the enemy while lighting them up with 12-gun salvoes every 25 seconds or so. Developer Diaries describe World of Warships game design in detail and it is all about our passion. Tier 7 is OP. On Republique, putting 4 points into IFHE is a minor improvement at best, more likely a sidegrade given the loss of fire damage potential vs very little additional pen damage, to secondary  effectiveness with a far more significant opportunity cost (EM is more important due to main gun layout, and BFT is more noticeable due to overall slower-firing secondaries plus the harder-hitting 127mm guns. Speaking of the Richelieu, I agree about the gun arcs and secondaries for kiting. I was doing some digging the other day and found out some interesting stuff about Battleship guns and their actual reload times. You don't know which ships are best and which suits you the most. But, the only benefit of IFHE is the ability to pen armor thicker than you would otherwise be able to. Sending sixteen 13-inch shells downrange is a hoot, I've nicknamed her 'the French Fowling Piece'. IronDuke has HE, Kongo great range, NY has range and good pen, Konig has great AP and accuracy, Cesare is..Cesare...Bretagne has nothing..poor accuracy, poor shell performance, poor range and poor speed...just an overall dog. All of the French BBs seem to have wonky dispersion and shell hits are unpredictable. She's the only T5 BB that I can't make work. These ships were developed directly from the ships of the preceding class but carried 340 mm guns arranged under a more rational scheme. If completed, she would have been the first ship in the world to carry its main armament in Quadruple-gun turrets. So, not going to do 'full reviews' like I did of the British BBs because lazy, but having played up through Alsace, here'smy quick impressions of the French BB line so far: Standard review disclaimer by me: I am an average to a bit above average player who plays mostly solo, so this is from that perspective. Thats ridiculously low for 494 hits. A series of French battleships built in response to the appearance of British "superdreadnoughts". I'm getting probably 75% of my secondary damage in Alsace from fires. Good writeup and I agree with everything you said thus far. French Destroyers exit early access, and now there’s a new system for you to manage and upgrade […] It does not increase damage if you can already pen that armor without IFHE. Still has a high skill floor but I clicked with her very well and she's as much fun as Alsace.). She isn't very stealthy (although better than some BBs) but she has great speed to flex around the map, and she has low hp but if angled correctly can be very survivable. Great review, poetic motion. But firing SIXTEEN main guns downrange means you're going to get hits even with weird dispersion. She may be workable for you; I admit four games is not enough to get a good feel for a ship. On 4/14/2018 at 5:23 PM, HMCS_Moncton said: not normandie because that ship is a hot mess.

The best solution would be simply testing all the warships of each nation. But Ialso dealt 42k damage from the fires those secondary hits set. But If I remember right, in the first datamined stats, they did not feature Nassau’s guns, but Helgoland’s guns instead, seemling at first trying to make the Tier 3 for the Germans essentially a second Kawachi, making the tier 3 ships very similar, instead of giving each nation … World of Warships Tier VIII Best Battleships. Also, firing sixteen guns downrange never ever ever ever gets old. I'm at T9 near to the T10 and yea, I'm enjoying the French, they are great with my aggressive play-style. “When it all comes together around two competent teams working together, World of Warships is a glorious pre-World War 2 admiralty fantasy come to life.” 8.3/10 – IGN “Its mix of ponderous warships and huge guns—the biggest guns ever fired in anger by mankind—is beautiful, polished, and a joy to play.” 80/100 – PCGamer I was wrong. I went with an AA build as I don't feel shell dispersion is all that bad especially when she has 16 guns. I originally stated I wasn't in a rush to get Republique if I even bothered with her at all. In World of Warships, this build may be considered as the most versatile and can be used for any Battleship of any tier. @HazeGrayUnderway did some systematic testing in a training room for some less anecdotal data, shown in quote below: In training room tests, I've timed my Alsace Secondaries to fire for 2 minutes each on FDG, Alsace, Missouri, Izumo, Lion targets. ), Thank you very much for taking the time to answer, poetic motion (and such a detailed reply too). After launching in August and leaving early access, World of Warships: Legends is set to get its first update today, September 16, 2019. But omg she's op in random battles. So even in those games where no one on your team will push and you can't get away with closing in to knife range, you're still able to deal significant damage. I don't straight up brawl with her as much as I do German BBs, but I do play her as a lancer much like Richelieu; charge in, then use speed to whip around and kite, staying near max range of secondaries and angled away from the enemy while lighting them up with 12-gun salvoes every 25 seconds or so. Tier 5: Bretagne is ok. She isn't very stealthy (although better than some BBs) but she has great speed to flex around the map, and she has low hp but if angled correctly can be very survivable. The first battleship-dreadnought built in France. My 19-point Republique captain build: PT, Expert Marksman, Adrenaline Rush, Super, BFT, AFT, Manual Secondaries.

I rushed to Alsace as I played her on test server and loved her, but I'm in no rush to get Republique. I prefer main gun accuracy over secondary range, especially with these inconsistent French BBs. Also, while I did consult numbers and stats, my reviews are primarily based on the feel of the ship and my performance in her. I play her as a lancer; move in at an angle, then time a turn when you have opportunity to minimize citadel exposure and pull back out, firing over shoulder while letting your 10+ km secondaries get in on the action. I am also trying too hard to erase destroyers and other fast, hard-to-hit threats, and that means my barrels are often unloaded when I should have them ready for bigger, slower ships. She's very quirky and she wont' work well for spray-and-pray players, but her secondaries and her very powerful and fast-loading main guns make her awesome. It probably doubled my overall secondary damage. Evne though I'm stronger in Republique than any other t10 BB, I'd still reach for GK, Monty, or Conqueror before Republique for clan battles. Then there’s the accuracy issue. I free-XPed out of her after four games, which is very rare for me. A high-speed battlecruiser designed to counter German heavy cruisers. She looks potentially fun but has a very high skill floor and will likely require a very good player with the right playstyle to consistently do well in her. She's wicked fast, has 12 undersized but accurate main guns (dispersion gets wonky near max range but from 11-13 km in they're deadly), her secondaries will merrily light fires and add damage, and her secondaries have more 360-degree coverage than Richelieu.

Oh, I should mention, French BBs are the most romantic ships, while the French CAs try to play hard to get, the BBs like to get up close and sneak in a kiss (ram), although you may get in trouble for kissing those underage Anime ships, you have to do it, For FRANCE!!!! I've just started on Richelieu. She is a BEAST. Members. She's wicked fast, has 12 undersized but accurate main guns (dispersion gets wonky near max range but from 11-13 km in they're deadly), her secondaries will merrily light fires and add damage, and her secondaries have more 360-degree coverage than Richelieu.
