Yeah I know. That's why I asked about those who bought it already. It's available on premium shop.

After Only 2 games I can already tell its NOT WORTH THE MONEY, its going to be a struggle getting your DMP and coins, in a a T10 T9 MM, and I am running IFHE

The first game I played yesterday the enemy team had a Bayard. I was polite to ask all chat what ship is that and 5 minutes later killed it in my Fat Freddy. Wasn´t even targeting him so much but the thing takes a lot of BB AP dmg and citadels. Guess you can make it work but if I see one in the future I think I will shoot them ASAP as it gives nice xp rewards and credits... for me. :cat_bubble:

 

My 2 cents from the opposing team.

Flamu seems to like it.. in it´s current state. However he is Flamu. I couldn´t stand a cruiser that is made of such RNG glass. I raged enough in the pre-buff Ibuki thank you very much. :cap_fainting:

Well I got the ship and it is what it is: a very squishy light cruiser. 

Its like a variation of the Cleve.

Same arcs, a bit more range, same Cleveland playstyle.

You exchange radar and a bit armor for speed- and reloadbooster and torps.

For me a good deal, i like it.

My Henri captain with IFHE is at the helm.

Is it worth 40,- € ? Is a Cleveland worth 40 ? Thats an individual decision. I am a collector, i m good with it.

:Smile_honoring:

I'm sorry, what? 

 

I bought the ship after supertesting it, and she's just as good as she was in ST. She is well worth the price, and noone is forcing you to buy a premium in a bundle with junk you have little use for. That skin looks horrendous, if you paid money for it, I can agree with the not worth the money statememnt, but otherwise the ship is a good dakkaboat. You're not gonna be carrying games in the ship alone, especially when bottom tier, but it's well worth its asking price.

I think the Molotov is one of the best looking ships in the game, If it had some armour I would play it a lot, as much as I love the looks , I love getting past the H line more.

Sounds Interesting, Very Cool sailing,

 

How many battles does a ship get in a super test?

 

Do I get paid to become a super tester, and if so how much is the salary ?

I love my Molotov but its not the same playstyle.

In Molotov you always wait for the chance to score with these fabulous uncomparable AP.

Bayard reminds me more of a Atlanta. Exzellent camo 9,6 km, high ROF, you are looking for cover und HE is the choice of ammo. And everything that Hits you hurts badly

Yep a sleek design. Though it's a modified copy of Italian design. Italian cruisers on the way :Smile_smile:

ST is voluntary and unpaid, the reward is that you get to play the ships early and whatever you earn off them (be that ridicuus amount of credits or mental disrders) you get to keep (there are other rewards, but none of them are monetary and I don't like discussing ST matters outside of ST). Ships get as many battles as they can to establish a good enough sample size, and given that there are literally more than 200 people doing the testing, that is not that difficult. There are goals set up to meet that insures that people play the ships enough.

Interesting.

 

When " a player " pays for signals and modules and goes into a random game and finds theirs some work in progress super ship, example test Exeter with smoke is that fair to the player who paid the money?

 

Would it be better to test work in progress ships with other super test ships?

 

If the super test ship is going to change, while this " ship " hasn't changed yet the " super test" statistics are invalid.

 

You are the one that brought up super tester.

 

Happy Super testing

Hello MacArthur92

this morning I did a little research about how succesful has been this new ship in selling. As you know WG usually Dont release this data, so we can only make a guess.

However below you will find out the recent stats according to one of the most reliable website. 

I would say she perform very well BUT perhaps because it' s in the hand of good / above average players.

Let start with EU server followed by NA, RU and Asia

One thing that somehow surprise me is the little amount of games over 3/4 days since the release.

EU for example: 1060 games mean an average of 250/ 270 x day since release. Assuming a new owner is playing between 7 and 10 games per day with the new baby, this should mean WG has sold more or less 100/150 Bayard . 

Not a big hit so far.

The cinderella is RU server with only 83 games in 3 days! probably around 8/10 sold units.

Compared to Cleveland.

+ Faster turrets, torps, high speed, better range. 

- Less armor, worse AA, slower reload, slower rudder, worse detection by 360 m.

 

The guns is very "Cleve-ish" and I had no problem lobbing shells over islands.

I like her.

I've had mine since day 1 and I've played one game in her. Remember that we have an event right now were you have to play a whole lot of different ships so I doubt many have time to play the same ship over and over again.

Yes I knnow, But at the same time you have the special mission to get 250 Rep coins. So you would probably play it.

And to be honest I don't think this event can be so appealing to many. Cause the final reward (mogador) is only a silver ship that you have to pay dobloons to unlock when in a couple of month you can get it simply playing (if you really enjoy the line).

I would mention on the plus the special penetration of HE shells wich according to Flamu (as I don't have it) is 1/5 of caliber instead of the regular 1/6. 

perhaps some of the owners can confirm it.

I played one random (a loss), one co-op for the "french-cross-thingy" and then two more co-op to get the full 15k.

I can confirm that she has 29 mm of penn on the HE. Same firechance as Cleveland, 12%.
