    @Keyan_TTK DDs are easier to implement since they require far less work (don't have to research armor scheme, models are far easier to create, etc...) and there's some hype around the Le Fantasque-class.
    On the other hand, there's probably even more hype around the French BBs and DDs are already the most represented class in terms of ships available. We already know that there will be a new Soviet DD line, and we could see a RN DD line this year as well (although I imagine they'll focus on CV line after the RN BB line is released).
    Also, a cruiser line is required to be able to access the BB line, while DDs are mostly standalone. The KM line release went Cruisers -> BBs -> DDs, the RN line is Cruisers -> BBs -> ?, while the Soviet line was DDs -> Cruisers -> BBs. We can see a bit of a pattern here.

    If they implement what players want the most and if the pattern is correct, then the second French line will be the BB line in all likelihood.

    That would be nice to have too. For now the PvE rewards are meagre, and the earlier "Defence" PvE flopped because of a lack of human players. On the other hand, I understand the need not to gut PvP entirely, like what happened to Armored Warfare.

Lots of factors to take into account on whether these guns would be effective in given situations.
    The 138.6mm guns have an advantage over the German 150mm: they benefit from the BFT and AFT (and the new proposed APHE/IFHE) skills, that what makes them so interesting in my opinion. That said, I want to see their IG performance too, as theoretical performance is fine and dandy, but they will probably be "balanced".


    @Mobius
    I'm fine with whatever second line WG decides to introduce fpr the French Navy. I'd like to see Le Fantasque and Mogador DDs, but I'm not a good DD captain, so grinding for Richelieu would be a nice goal too.

    @Keyan_TTK If the current version of IFHE gets into the game, 138.6mm won't gain a special benefit over 127mm at those tiers.

    On the other hand, I saw no mention of carrier gameplay rework in that vid.

    @Keyan_TTK This game has aircraft carriers?

    ​Actually Asia server does have quite a few.

    @DLRevan
    Believe me or not, last week I had numerous games with 2CVs per side on the EU server !


    @Mobius
    WG did mention last year there were going to be no French BB line for 2017. Either they changed their minds, or we're going to have some French DDs before them.

    "Will we be seeing a French battleship line in 2017?"
    -Frostss

    Nope, but we do have a different battleship line planned for 2017. ;)

    I've ended up saying it elsewhere, and I feel it's small (and soon) enough to say this.

    The French lines we're getting are Cruisers and Destroyers. One of the French DDs is in the preview video if yu look close enough.

    Expect them to have everything that's good about the VMF line, but better (Frenchies get 138mm gunboat DDs), with the downside being poor AA (whopdeedoo), and them being bigger in size while being thin (RN CL will eat them alive).


    I always pull my weight. I just happen to be made of helium.
    There is no such thing as coincidence. Only necessity.
