it just showed up in port one day

 

what did i do to get this ship?

why are the upgrades free?

is this a test ship? (and will be taken back one day)

 

*aside,  this ship is great.  good speed, great guns, shell penn looks promising, maneuverable

awkward gun angles though

Sorry for chiming in, I don't mean to sound condescending in any possible way , I'm just cruious, but ... how? Don't you pay attention to what happens in the post battle resultscreen? Or in your notifications after a battle?

Glad you like it! I'm looking forward to several French battleships myself...because....well they are French!

I won Bretagne, and I shall play her to research Normandie, but most likely skip the Tier 6 ship because the AA looks horrible.

You will have got a mission when you opened one of the French containers, this mission just needs a certain amount of XP to complete.

Since it's the Normandie you will also have the Bretagne in port which is the T5.

Many people are just not interested to see what is going on in their game.

They prefer to run to the forum and get there the explanations for every little button or feature they missed before (basicly everything).

They're more comparable to the T5 Gulio Cesare's 320mm and T5 Konig's 305mm in terms of ballistics and penetration than they are to the worst 356mm AP shells on T6

i only care about

 

  • how much XP i got (on the first screen)
  • roughly which quartile and how much raw XP i got in the scoreboard
  • how much credits/captain XP i made

 

so yes, i dont care for much else lol

the AA is horrible on the normandie.  but its BB AA,  i dont expect much.  

 

to me anyways,  the most important stat on a BB is gun accuracy and penn

maybe armor

i found the konig shells to be rather strong.  i dont know if it was MM (your competition has no armor), or the steep plunging you get from relatively short ranges,  but they seemed to do satisfying chunks

Not obligatory, he just rolled Normandies mission

All 4 ships are separate, you don't need one to get some other

Odd, other posts stated that the ships only came in order, so you couldn't get the T7 mission without getting the T5 and 6 missions.

Maybe that was nonsense or maybe there's some flukes happen, my clanmates that have had some of the French BB's have all had them in order, me included.

Fair enough, that theory is comprehensively disproved then.

Nothing wrong with that, it's just so different from me, because I double check every screen, every information window ... if I wasn't such a lazy bastard I'd even keep track in a neatly excel sheet about missions and stuff. Mostly because I like to follow a progress over a few weeks.

 

 

But thanks!

If you feel that it works for you, all the best.

But for me, the guns are rather poor.
In fact, the entire ship for me is an aberration that should not have been buffed so much, and should have been left in the tier it belongs: T5
Right now for me, it's a very weak platform that's been made to work by shoehorning in T8 fast battleship speeds, yet keeps dreadnought turning radius.

It's not that I find it bad, it's that I find that it's min-maxing with armor, speed and firepower in odd, and frankly nonsensical ways.

 

To me, the Normandie is like seeing a 20 knot DD with battleship armor and DD concealment
Sure it can be fun to just sail up and blast people without them really able to do much,  but it's really weird to have ingame and just makes you ask "Why?"

Most of times I dont pay attention to missions. 

I just play various ships and I get the missions done (most of times).

 

I hate being "pushed" to play in a pre-defined way.

And I specially hate meta-shifting WG is doing with the missions.

 

That being said, I completed the French missions (that were not badly designed surprisingly) with little effort. Got T5,6 and T7 French ships.

But that costed me collection items / duplicates.

 

I am 3 duplicates (or 1 item) short of completing the missions for the captain.

Dont Skip it.... Ok AA is crap But

 

1, You dont often meet CVs

2, She is very responsive on the Helm. you can avoid the bulk of most drops.

3, she has good speed

4, OWWWW those guns

5. Those guns are good against BBs but against DD and CA/CL.. HELLLOO or rather goodbye. A DD being looked at by the Normandie is a dead DD

 

Ok i dont have the tier 7 and she is supposed to be better. But the tier 6 is a barrel of fun.. Don't waist your Free XP

 

And @Admiral_H_Nelson remember this is a DD commander talking....
