    Richelieu - Tier VIII

    Richelieu is certainly not the best tier 8 BB, I hated it at first - I was so dissapointed, cause I have always loved it by its appearance and so forth. Anyway, its grown on me. Vs AP shells its tanky enough, like most BBs of its tier as long as you dont do what it appears most richelieu players do : Sail broadside. Clearly, this ship is tailored to be bow in. That means pushing, more than likely, since its also fast. Now, while the secondaries dont have the best placement (its not true they are all facing backwards, some will fire from the side when you angle) they are actually very good secondaries, nearly competing in range with the germans. So, I added this together and rebuilt my captain into full manual secondaries. I havent looked back. More effective? Very debatable. But definately more fun! And helps me, personally, to play in a style that more helps this ship as well as its team. Now, truly the biggest two flaws of this ship is the guns (accuracy as well as lack of "punch" in the form of penetration ability) and the fact that it seems intensely allergic to HE. Which made me start out with a solid tanking build. While it does help, it doesnt seem to do much compared to other BBs, the Richy is still taking tonnes of fire damage. So didnt feel like warranting 19 points towards it. Now I am using an IFHE full manual secondary build. And as stated, while its probably somewhat less efficient, its very very fun and encourages playing the ship I beleive its meant to be played. Kiting away from enemies is something this ship is good at, too, especially with this build. To my knowledge, the IFHE means your secondaries will pen more cruisers. IFHE isnt worth the points really. But its fun. hah. Anyway, my 2 cents. On a side note, its probably not the best ship for ranked. And probably not the worst, either.
  2. I just realised, and it may be a dumb question.... do we get to keep the ships ? I mean, they come counting as premium ships and upgrades unlocked and already in your inventory. Are they taken away from us when french BBs are released ?

    Chapayev CPT Skills 14pts

    as the title says, I am about to pick up the chapayev, and have a 14 point captain. Now, do I got for BFT, AFT, IFT... or do I desperately want the camouflage expert for the last kilometre of stealth ? Ill naturally be running the module regardless for stealth. I could consider trying to run without the captain skill.... hm

    Procrastes, mine is just an opinion To me, the arizona feels like it....how to put it.... it just doesnt hit those citadels that I expect. Sure, its got 1.8 sigma to the NMs 1.5. but the dispersion is worse, and its felt in my opinion. yet, those are in reality minor differences, really. The biggest one is the lack of AA. Ugh.

    New Mexico : 9 + 1 = 10 Same reasons as below, and probably the best battleship of the tier. 12 guns, more tanky than fuso, workable AA, maneuverable, and hits like a runaway truck. Cleveland : 32Farragut : 20Arizona : 18 - 3 = 15 For being massively inferior to the New Mexico, in terms of accuracy (Sigma doesnt help solve this for the arizona) as well as AA and other things.

    Ranger AS is underestimated. The skill of CV players at that tier is awful, its very easy. More than once, I killed enemy CV in ONE attack with my measly two dive bombers. Simple, bomb - repair - bomb - fire -dead. Also, people understimate the value of a fighter scouting rather than an empty bomber. And at those tier, literally shutting down enemy CV to the extent he only ever got his first attack off, if that, is quite easy imho. And my two dive bombers can do more damage than that. Of all my ships, I did do pretty well in ranger. And saipan. And kaga However, that whole thing, for me, changes at tier 8+

    Hmm. Thanks for all the responses. I am a very aggressive player. I started with the German bbs. Well years back at launch i played us CVs and did badly. Changed that when i picked it up again. Youtube etc. Generally my recents are better. Apart from missouri, midway and GK. I Have more recently grinded IJN BBs and dine somewhat better i think than my German bbs. Tirpitz and scharn i acquired like an idiot when i was at tier 4-5 lol. Recently the teams have been rubbish at any tier it seems though. But midway takes the cake fir me. I feel thete is nothing i can do to save a bad team. Even when i do 150k dmg and shur down the enemy CV we still lose. For me the struggle with CVs start at tier 8. it gets a lot harder then to be sure for me. Ans yes i definitely skipped more than i should. Less than 10 games in bayern lol. Used all my special xp camos on US CVs. Yeah. But i feel like i improved... until hunt for bismarck and it took a nose dive.

    Looking for advice. Since hitting high tiers and around the time rhe hunt for bismarck started my WR dropped from 52 to 49. Especially my midway is awful at 20% after 63 games played. (I skipped essex to get a 10 to play with mates) i may be bad. But im not 20% bad. Missouri i have fun in. Stats indicate im so bad in it. GK 36%. Etc Lately the teams have been ultra awful or is it just me ? And at high tiers my teams usually camp and cower behind an island and take no caps, just wait to die. Im not a total idiot in CVs either, I don't think. But midway i cannot get bloody wins in. Did i get to high tiers before being ready? Awful teams ? Both ? The loss streaks have been so frustrating, or i wouldnt normally post.
