Hello guys, new player here. Nice to meet you.:Smile_honoring:

 

A bit self-introduction, I am from Asia server with above average skills, I guess? Just wanna loitering here for a change.

 

A few quick question.

- Is the french cruisers' engine and rudder really weak? Or its because at low-tier everything breaks?

- Any casual clan or anime-based clan that still got empty spots?

Hi, Nice to meet you.

 

Only got to tier 5 on the frenchies, and i wouldn't say that the engines or rudders aren't noticeably weaker than any other similar tier ship. I work by the principle its best to be shot at for the shortest time possible though, so i haven't had many incapacitation's.

Welcome in the EU server. Hope you'll have a good time here.

 

I can only answer your French ship question. I'm not into the clan business. I'm @ Charles Mattel. Took the engine protection. But nearly every shell hit on the nose is a guatanteed rudder. I'm actually seriously thinking of taking last stand on my captain.

Thanks guys, I guess I will grind more to consider LS or AR.

Ahoy, welcome to Europe :Smile_honoring:

 

I guess the engine and rudder on French ships break so easily because they are cruisers. I had the same problem during the grind of my German cruisers - every single HE shell seemed to break the main engine of my trusty Hipper.

As for your clan question, I highly recommend the one and only Pravda Kantai - great people, lots of fun on their Discord. Even if you don't apply or if they have no vacant slot, it is always worth dropping into their channel. Best ask @GenrMcAuliffe1 for an invitation :)

There are some other clans around, of course, but I'd first try to get a foot into PRAVD ;)

On the other hand they don't get citadelled by destroyer HE like Danae...

 

In fact French cruisers are in certain sense quite forgiving:

Show side and most APs just overpen, including DD APs.

 

If you show side of Kuma, Phoenix or Omaha to gunboat destroyer who knows what he's doing it's quick return to port.

T4 and 5 French cruisers won't ever suffer from this:

French got space-armour where it can stop the short AP fuse on DDs and RN CLs, you still takes massive damage from others.

Spaced armour negates only DD HE.

APs overpen because those French cruisers are made from tinfoil and there isn't much anything to slow down shells besides citadel being small target.

And RN CL APs have special fuze sensitivity not shared with other ships.

(DD AP overpens below 25mm plated targets including DDs)

 

Only times I've managed to citadel T4 Duguay in match is from near auto-bounce angle, when effective thickness of armor is higher along with longer shell flight time inside the ship.

 

Testing in training room at 11km range Soviet 130mm AP has slowed down enough and trajectory is enough downwards that citadel hits are possible from side angle.

At shorter range they just overpen for miserable 250 damage.

Though at shorter range when being able to hit reliably it's possible to citadel Duguay through stern!

I found the french rudders less sturdy than japanese ones so far (T7) heard it gets better on the Henry though.

Greetings and again welcome to the EU server, hope you have a pleasant time and good luck. :Smile_bajan2:
