My thoughts after playing ….on the weekend.



  1. The impression I get of the French BB’s from tier 7-10 is that they need to be played as flankers and cruiser hunters, the Lyon in particular. You just can’t duke it out with equal level BB’s from other nations. HE will eat you alive and it won’t take long for cruiser drivers to realize that…as a cruiser driver myself, I’ll be looking for the French BB’s. I have to admit though, the thought of getting my cruiser exposed to a Lyon broadside gives me The Fear.

      The Lyon eats cruisers and is always hungry for them. Its not until you get to the tier 9 French BB that you can start going toe to toe with other BBs, and then only when played smartly. The secondaries are glorious on the Gascogne, Alsace, and Republique and really put a hurting on everything, being on the receiving end is quite….toasty.

  2. please don’t stream you should title it Gascogne how to get blood pressure from my noobish play you will regret that when you get skilled in the game but now don’t stream please watch notser and flambu how they play and follow

      This is a first impressions gameplay, I record my first four or so games in a new ship and upload it with my thoughts. I do this so viewers can get an honest look at a ship rather than playing 30 or so games and just showing just the massive damage clips. I’ll admit this isn’t my finest gameplay ever, but this was also recorded on the weekend. Plus, when do I ever mention streaming?

  3. I have to completely disagree with what you have shown in this video I have the Gascogne and find it to be an incredible Battleship at tier 8. Angling armor is key and the guns are incredible I have specced into manual secondary to take advantage of the great secondaries. True the ship gets into tier 10 matches all the time and I routinely am in the top 3 playing the ship. You can’t charge in like you do against 4 or 5 ships… But i have taken it to enemy bbs that are 1 or 2 tiers higher. You really need to learn the ship’s strengths and weaknesses.

      Angling armor is good and all against AP, but with the amount of HE other players will throw at you, you’re still gonna take a ton of damage from that. I also have an aggressive play style with battleships, and my weekends usually go like the video shows due to weekend players, (except for the mid push on Two Brothers, I just wanted to have fun there lol). So thats why I say its too squishy for a Tier 8 that you have to pay $60+ for, I would prefer to spend my money on something like the Tirpitz or Alabama. But don’t get me wrong I’m not saying its a bad ship, I’m about halfway through recording my second video on it and it performs much better.
