The armour scheme for this ship looks like one that was designed for real world use where the aircraft was the weapon of choice for taking out capital ships which is great for us on on EU where CVs are a lot more common but for you guys on NA this thing is going to be a piñata. That said isn't that outer layer just the event horizon to the massive damage eating black hole that it is spaced armour? How does that work vs HE? Does it cause a shatter check for each layer or does it do full… Read more »

The fundamental problem is the entire line doesn't go with what France actually went with.  The tier 6 should be Strasbourg (Dunkerque's sister), tier 7 should be something in between Richelieu and Dunkerque in size, tier 8 Richelieu, tier 9 Alsace, and tier 10 they had a choice… go with 4×4 380mm or 3×4 406mm+.  The easiest solution for game balance would be 3×4 16inch+ guns, because everything minus Yamato has that, and it would play exactly the same as the tier 9.  Make the back guns firing angles terrible (like the Brits) to keep the flavor of the tier… Read more »

why bashing this ship already ? Seriously Ichase ?? This is WiP and there are plenty of (soft) stats to change in order to make this ship good enough

So like the cruisers kiting kiting kiting till the map border and spamming usless HE, untill the enemy DD join you at the border and then hope the sec kill him…. yeah. Ppl will get fried by Fire and the rest will run useless away. Secondary meta died long ago, the last nail were the britsh BBs and their HE. Everyone specs fire prevention these days. And with the upcoming rise in US CVs all germans will spec AA too… tdlr: a meh ship

Graf Spee at T10 in battleship line without torpedos…. nice…but it seems very bad battleship

Nice to see a ship with Yamato levels of penetration but quite good turret traverse. Armor and AA look very promising too. Not to mention the ship is gorgeous.

The lack of short-range AA is no surprise. This is theoretically a post-war BB and WWII showed small-caliber AA like Oerlikons and whatnot to just not be all that effective. Which is why you see ships of that era (Des Moines, Jean Bart, Henri IV, etc) with almost entirely medium and heavy AA and little to no light AA.

Turtleback would be a German thing only. Not for all goddangit ships that sailed the seas…

Nah…. WG just learnt their lesson and they are not overhyping everyone with a retarded Tier X OP BB, they are taking it nice and smooth and it will buffed along the way…

That being said, I'd rather have some sort of super-Alsace…

you would think the 127 mm would at least be duel purpose for a strong AA platform. Current stats overall look very weak. Just hope it is more accurate the Dunkurk

if this ship is in tier 9 then it makes sense… but in tier 10? really WG. the tier 9 has 12 gun and the tier 10 has 8 guns?
swap the tier 9 and the tier 10 makes more sense.

Ummm…
You do realize Yamato has 35% fire chance with only 1 more gun… right?

I noticed you mentioned the main belt armour being 400mm, with a little being under water.
With the new Deep Water Torps (DWT), does the game take this in to consideration. Can the DWT hit below the main belt armour in this case or similair config.
I think long range this wil always get over powered, a simple DPM issue, however close in, the secondaries maybe very effective.
It's not making me want it and especially grind my way to it.

French line end at tier 9. A tier X needs 6 guns facing forward. Hands down. Every other has it. I have sold kurfurst because of angles on back turrets, and love conq and yama for their angles.

It's unique without being too gimickly (RN), and not just an overpowered version of what we already have. I like it. It looks like this will probably play closest to the GK. Better armor, faster speed, better secondaries, better penetration, worse alpha damage and same poor angles.
