Hello again guys. New changes to the Gascogne. Sigma changed from 1.8 to 1.9. Sounds nice :cap_rambo:

 

ST, French battleship Gascogne

Firing range decreased from 24770 m to 23820 m.

Sigma value is increased from 1.8 to 1.9.

"Repair Party" consumable cooldown is cut in half - 60 seconds for standard and 40 seconds for premium.

Range reduction will reduce the ship's sniping potential at a maximum distance; improved Sigma value will lead to increased results from from skillful shots. “Repair party” changes are designed to make the overall gameplay more comfortable and reduce the need to retreat and break the action.

That 900m difference will definitely prevent people from sniping...

Haven't checked too much on it, but if I'm not mistaken - 32mm all over? DCP will make it less vulnerable to fires, but just the same as Monarch - Gascone will die to HE before he manages to turn that ship around.

 

Everything else in those changes is pretty irrelevant, the range "nerf" still leaves it at the best range of its tier letting you comfortably sit back and snipe like a typically useless BB, sigma buff just increases your chances to hit (and just like any accuracy thing - at long range the buff has more weight than at close range).

A step in the right direction, but still thunk Richy is just waaaaay better.

 

Give Gascogne back the 7 km secondaries and we can start talking.

I like these modifications and I will buy the ship now.

Maybe the repair party short cooldown, and the use of the repair party special upgrade could make the 32mm deck not too bad to sustain HE damage?

Ship has an interesting secondary battery for a possible secondary build. But it's crippled by the 5km range. Give it 7km, or at least 6.5km if you really need Bismarck to retain the top spot.

Going by stats in Wiki...

 

Gascogne and Richelieu have the highest potential fires set per minute, Monarch has it at beating Monarch by almost a full fire. Accuracy will be the deciding factor how HE spammy they will be.

Actually on most tiers just because of how many guns they have FR BBs have the highest or one of the highest potential to set fires, so unless they will be rather inaccurate they'll do as good a job if not better than RN BBs, for example - Lyon at about 25% accuracy would set as many fires as Nelson currently does... :Smile_teethhappy:

She have 7km base range. Remember i saw this on the FB some times ago :) 

 

ST, French battleships

Base range of secondary armaments was increased:

Richelieu and Gascogne, tier VIII - from 5 km to 7 km
Alsace, tier IX - from 7 to 7,5 km
France, tier X - from 7 to 8 km

These changes increase the priority of close combat and make the battleships more efficient overall.

These changes sound good! 

 

Now +2km on Secondaries please and we are good to go :-)

With the armor layout and the lack of HE pen Frensh BBs are never sec fokused ships. Even germans hardly fokus on sec past Bismark and tehy are more resistant to HE damage to begin with......

Id rather say that the only ships worth to use secondaries on is Gneisenau and GK. Bismarck with all the 105s with nerfed firechance and 1/6 HE pen sucks anyway.
