No final reviews or details about its final stats seem to exist though.

I'm *definitely* going to wait to see some definitive numbers, and reviews - the WiP stuff I've read didn't sound very promising...

Judging by the reviews that I have seen during the testing of the ship, the "Terrible" is going to be the most appropriately named ship in the game until the "USS Complete Pants" arrives.

Keeping my wallet closed for now until I see some definite reviews.

 

Shame if she's a turd, because I really like the Aigle (although maybe I'm a weirdo in that respect), and I very much want her chubbier sister to be good as well.

I wonder if the lack of reviews may be due to WG releasing her a day earlier than is usual (I'm not going mental - today *is* Thursday, right?)?

 

Edit: or the cynic in me wonders if reviewers are under an NDA until tomorrow, to give a day of sales before (possibly) poor reviews are released?

I would say it suits ur signature pretty good.. Ramming at 55 speed is the best. :Smile_veryhappy:

Well I bought her, because I like the Aigle and I'm hoping she at least plays similarly. Not sure about the reload booster, can't say I love it in HIV but I'll give it a chance.

That would be scummy as hell. Releasing a ship before the NDA expires so that the players can't make an informed decision.

That's a good question...

It would. I should emphasise that I have absolutely no information that this is what has happened though!

I've been playing WOT a lot longer than WOWS, and the former has given reasons in the past to not always expect the best from WG. To be fair, WOWS (the EU version anyway) has been doing quite a bit to help reduce my tendencies towards cynicism, admittedly with the occasional wobble along the way...

Since there's no sales article with the Terrible on the site ATM, I think that something derped and the ship got released before the intended date.

Were you ever impressed by any player in a co-op match, tho? ;)

Or just let her rust in your dockyard.....

 

I bought the Aigle so I don't see any reason to spend any more money on another French DD (unless she turns out to be a Harekaze or Cossack)......

I like a lot of ships that kind of straddle that line, "am I a DD? am I a CL?", Okhotnik, Aigle, etc.

 

But the Aigle was free, and the Okhotnik wasn't much above 10 EUR... ... but at 35 EUR, I dunno.
