world of warships: legends french battleships

Tier 6's observations are interesting. With Richelieu, I got 3 citadels on an FDG at 18 km in two consecutive salvos. It probably doubled my overall secondary damage. I run the secondary upgrade in the 500k credit upgrade slot, but for the 3-million credit upgrade slot I use the upgrade for main gun reload speed, as I find it gives me more value overall to shave time off my main gun reload as I use those all game whereas I am not *always* in secondary range (although I try to be, because brawler Alsace is best Alsace. 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. FREQUENT UPDATES New content in the form of ships… Their defining feature has to be quadruple-gun turrets! Someone said something like “quantity has a quality all its own.”  Plus Tier 7 is the sweet spot in current matchmaking. This is with a 16-point captain, so before I had BFT, but with manual secondaries, adrenaline rush, and AFT. Developer Diaries describe World of Warships game design in detail and it is all about our passion. By dropping IFHE, I can run Super AND BFT at the same time, giving me a 10% boost to my 2ndary firepower without losing Super. The construction of such turrets was driven by the desire to achieve maximum broadside firepower given the ship's limited size. FREQUENT UPDATES New content in the form of ships… 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 … Below you will find a short description of all warship types. And don’t neglect those pesky DDs or smoking cruisers. But, the only benefit of IFHE is the ability to pen armor thicker than you would otherwise be able to. PSA/Information If completed, she would have been the first ship in the world to carry its main armament in Quadruple-gun turrets. They don't matter anyway, it takes a few games to grind through a tier 3 or 4 and honestly, nothing can ever beat Orion. Added in Update 0.7.2, French battleships start at low tier with traditional dreadnought-style designs, but shift to designs more akin to battlecruisers at higher tiers. The majority of outgoing fire is your 100mm secondaries. Thanks for sharing your experiences @poeticmotion. She's absolutely amazeballs. As such, kiting in this ship is a blast, especially since her turrets do have such strong firing arcs to the rear despite being concentrated in bow. Good writeup and I agree with everything you said thus far. Tier 9: Alsace is the jewel of the line and my new favorite tier 9 BB. 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. A question:  Do you use IFHE on your Alsace & République? Had a game in her with 400 secondary hits earlier. Alsace is easily my favorite, with Richelieu second. Firing angles are bad, but even a blind potato can hit stuff with 16 guns. 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. Also, while I did consult numbers and stats, my reviews are primarily based on the feel of the ship and my performance in her. With most of her stats coming in fairly average, the part that makes Richelieu good is in how she’s played. Its really off putting going from pretty standard AP, to fast super high pen AP that overpens everything, but once I got used to it I was consistently getting high damage, but still frustrating to play for me because I hate seeing overpen broadsides at all distances, and sub 10k broadside BBs, but still, was doing very well and I went from hating it to loving it very quickly. At the Lyon currently, a great ship with surprisingly good AA. And yet I’ve dumped a full salvo into a broadside cruiser at 8km without a citadel. Tier 10: I haven't played Republique but from everything I've seen in-game, plus heard from a couple friends who have her, I'm in no rush. Tier 7-9 are the good part of this line. Experience epic naval action in World of Warships Legends, a global multiplayer free-to-play online game in which you can master the seas on the decks of historys greatest warships Recruit Legendary Commanders, upgrade your vessels, and stake your claim to naval domination alongside and against players from around the world. 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 need to replay those games while we still have the current patch, look at the ribbons, and see exactly what happened to those shells when I'm NOT concentrating on fighting for my life. After launching in August and leaving early access, World of Warships: Legends is set to get its first update today, September 16, 2019. Why? One regards the grind to the top tier battleship, and the other answer is in regard to the ship that is most competitively viable In terms of grinding, the French line would be the easiest. French Cruisers will be available as well as French Battleships, though the latter is … The disadvantages of concentrating the ship's main guns on the bow were compensated by the favorable turret traverse angles. The ship carried twelve 305 mm main guns and powerful secondary guns. I don't have the hull upgrade yet (do have firing range & speed) as I'm being tight with my 120 million credits and 408,000 free XP. 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. 0: 0: No posts have been made on this board. Great review, poetic motion. For players who like speed and ability to move around map, appreciate a ship that can brawl or mid-range fight with equal aplomb, and can maximize their armor angles and stay alive to kick [edited], this is a fantastic line. (Edit as of 4/3: I bought Republique about a week ago after trying her on test server and I was wrong. 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!!!! 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. They are very fast for their size, and from Tier VIII onward they get access to the Engine Boost () consumable, further addin… For the most skilled players, two … The KGV eliminates the need to aim correctly with that stupid fire-starting HE. A flotilla of Italian Warships is headed to World of Warships: Legends in the new Veni, Vidi, Vici update. Experience epic naval action in World of Warships Legends, a global multiplayer free-to-play online game in which you can master the seas on the decks of historys greatest warships Recruit Legendary Commanders, upgrade your vessels, and stake your claim to naval domination alongside and against players from around the world. I was wrong. 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. 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 6: Normandie was garbage for me, the only ship I disliked. 167. And from tier 7 up, I recommend a secondary build or hybrid secondary/survival build. Awesome! In the beginning phase of the game it is hard to decide which warship types to develop. But the Normandie is awful at setting fires, too. Her guns are a bit derpy dispersion-wise and you need to expose a lot of side to fire all of them, so you have to be good at timing and positioning to do so without getting wrecked. Also, contrary to what I've seen people say, no ffs they're not HE spammers like British BBs were; use AP most of the time like your IJN, USN, and German BBs. Overall, which would you say was your favorite ship you tried out? I've just started on Richelieu. I'm on the Normadie and I have been shooting HE; not because I want to be an HE spammer, but because I can't citadel with AP. A battleship design created before the outbreak of World War I, representing an improvement on the previous Normandie class but carrying enhanced primary armament. Share your naval adventures with friends and turn the tide! The Republic is going to bring the quark back, but I can imagine once you work with the quark, she will work with you, with the 127mm secondaries or higher it can do more than just fires, and with 430mm guns can overmatch 27mm armor, and with the games I played with her in the Space Battles, I don't seem to get nearly as many overpens on broadsides. Her main turrets were placed in the fore end thus making any aft firing scenarios impossible. Tier 6 is good. But omg she's op in random battles. I do like Alsace. 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!!! The Tier VI Lyon even carries four quadruple turrets for a … Tier 7: Lyon is definitely not OP, but she's a lot of fun and certainly competitive. A flotilla of Italian Warships is headed to World of Warships: Legends in the new Veni, Vidi, Vici update. French Destroyers exit early access, and now there’s a new system for you to manage and upgrade […] Please Login or Register. There’s one small problem though. Jump to content. Members. 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. (bold print added by me.). You don't know which ships are best and which suits you the most. III Courbet. Tier 7 is OP. Français. 11.7k. Experience epic naval action in World of Warships: Legends, a global multiplayer free-to-play online game in which you can master the seas on the decks of history's greatest warships! Russian destroyersare an oddity; they frequently feel as if they have the powerful, fast-firing guns of their American counterparts mounted in the arduously slow-turning turrets of the Japanese destroyer line. I can also take Expert Marksman in addition to Adrenaline Rush, and since Republique has a 1x4 front/ 1x4 rear main gun layout compared to the 2x4 front / 1x4 rear layout of Alsace, EM is more valuable on Republique since switching sides takes 50% of my main gun firepower out of action until my turrets traverse as opposed to the 33% of Alsace. The Lyon makes it easy with sixteen (that’s right 16) rifles. Broadside CAs, BBs, CVs, it does not matter. Angling baits opponents to fire at your belt and your belt will shrug off most shots; bow-on means opponents will try and snipe your turrets. 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. However, even with her the secondaries don’t do much damage. Welcome Guest. A series of French battleships built in response to the appearance of British "superdreadnoughts". I'll write up a full review at some point but she's an incredibly good ship for a player who plays aggressively and can aim well. Experience epic naval action in World of Warships Legends, a global multiplayer free-to-play online game in which you can master the seas on the decks of historys greatest warships Recruit Legendary Commanders, upgrade your vessels, and stake your claim to naval domination alongside and against players from around the world. I went with an AA build as I don't feel shell dispersion is all that bad especially when she has 16 guns. The problem with German BBs in high tiers is that with the campy meta, its hard to do consistently well since you really have to get in close to maximize their DPM. Part of that was garbage teams and I got frustrated. I found Bretagne to be a dog. In World of Warships, this build may be considered as the most versatile and can be used for any Battleship of any tier. Lyon can fire broadsides at least 30 degrees ahead and 45 degrees abaft, which is workable enough that I can claim "If I said this was balanced, I'd be Lyon my [stern] off". This is not a suggestion thread BTW . But if you can stay angled you'll shrug off a lot of potential damage despite her low HP and her guns will decimate same-tier BBs or any cruiser. My 19-point Republique captain build: PT, Expert Marksman, Adrenaline Rush, Super, BFT, AFT, Manual Secondaries. WITH IFHE:  All BB targets were destroyed within 2 minutes. Look at the armor model. Her disadvantages included weak torpedo protection. Glimpse behind the scenes at the new battleship line! The 127mm guns have roughly the same pen without IFHE, 21.16mm armor, as the Alsace 100mm with IFHE. A series of French battleships built in response to the appearance of British "superdreadnoughts". I read another thread about it, and although costly, it might be worth it, especially for Alsace's two calibers of secondaries. AFT is nice though in terms of boosting AA as well. Tier 10: I haven't played Republique but from everything I've seen in-game, plus heard from a couple friends who have her, I'm in no rush. LOL  The hull upgrade will further enhance the AA rating too. All of the French BBs seem to have wonky dispersion and shell hits are unpredictable. From tier 6 up, and especially from tiers 8-10, the speed allows you to reposition quickly and flex where needed. In 2 minutes: WITHOUT IFHE:  BB targets survived with around 27k-32k HP remaining. She may be workable for you; I admit four games is not enough to get a good feel for a ship. You need to play a total of 10 battles to post in this section. On 4/14/2018 at 5:23 PM, HMCS_Moncton said: not normandie because that ship is a hot mess. French Destroyers exit early access, and now there’s a new system for you to manage and upgrade […] As far as IFHE, yes on Alsace, no on Republique. 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. Here's an example of what Republique's secondaries can do. Alsace 100mm 2ndary pen without IFHE: can pen up to 16.66mm armor. Gameplay review of the French Battleship Lyon and a look at strategy for the map Fault Line in World of Warships Legends (WoWs Legends) available on PS4 and XBOX1. But Ialso dealt 42k damage from the fires those secondary hits set. If you don't know how to effectively angle, learn or you're not going to enjoy them. And they have good fire chance, but they don't pen anything except some parts of DDs. Shatters and overpens aplenty. Note: I did not play tier 3 or 4 as i got Bretagne from mission. I tested it both ways; I did without IFHE for my first sixty games in Alsace, and did a ton of fire damage but not a lot of direct pen damage. She's the only T5 BB that I can't make work. World of Warships Tier VIII Best Battleships. Moves fast and has decent guns. I usually love fast BBs but her turret firing arcs were punitive and I couldn't seem to mitigate damage well enough to compensate for her low hp. IJN: Mikasa's 305 mm/40 41st Year Type: 1 round per minute or 60 sec reload* Kawachi's 305 mm/45 41st Year Type: 2 rounds per minute or 30 sec reload Ishizuchi's 305 mm/45 Mk10: ~1.5 rounds per … Why this ship owns this tier: France takes tier VIII with the Richelieu. Welcome to the largest subreddit dedicated to the Naval Action game World of Warships: Legends! Once I got my 18th capt point, I added IFHE and tripled my average pen damage while only cutting fire damage by about a third. But firing SIXTEEN main guns downrange means you're going to get hits even with weird dispersion. Tier 5: Bretagne is ok. But once you get there, wheeee! Your mileage may vary depending on your playstyle and skill level. The first French battleship design with the main battery guns placed in three quadruple gun turrets. Curiously, this pun has yet to be considered awful enough to be reported. This is of course a limited sample size, and is affected by my playstyle (which is generally fairly aggressive leading to occasional overreaches and a low survival rate.) Whut? In this update, the French Navy makes its debut, with the French Cruisers leading the way and the French Battleships appearing in early access. The first battleship-dreadnought built in France. V NORMANDIE. TL;DR: On Alsace, putting 4 points into IFHE is a drastic improvement to secondary effectiveness with only a minor opportunity cost (since EM is comparatively less important than it is for Republique.) Speaking of the Richelieu, I agree about the gun arcs and secondaries for kiting. I had the frustration of smacking a Gascogne last night at almost zero range with four- to eight-gun broadsides and doing not all that much. Created Sep 12, 2018. The speed, agility, and ability to flank and catch the enemy team in a cross fire cannot be understated. I originally stated I wasn't in a rush to get Republique if I even bothered with her at all. She shares the 3x3 152mm secondaries of Alsace, although 2 in front/1 in rear whereas Alsace is 1 in front/2 in rear. She combines the mid-range accuracy of USN BBs (although with lower alpha strike potential due to small guns) with the secondary-range devastation of a Kurfurst or Friedrich. She's a bit too squishy for clan battles and such; she's not built to take focus fire even though she's tougher than you'd expect when angled well. I was doing some digging the other day and found out some interesting stuff about Battleship guns and their actual reload times. So you'll set lots of fires, but you won't do direct damage with them. These ships were developed directly from the ships of the preceding class but carried 340 mm guns arranged under a more rational scheme.
