How to Algerie

I feel that I'm sailing the Algerie the wrong way. I play it like how I play Shchors and Chapayev which is long-range kiting. Somehow I could not make it work as my winrate is pitiful on the Algerie compared to the Shchors. Some tips and pointers are highly appreciated.

She is a midrange support cruiser like Myoko. Put your speed to good use and dodge shells. And do the typical cruiser thing. Annoy bigger ships and scare smaller ones. You can be aggressive when you out number the flank you are opposing. However, be careful around BBs.

similar to Hipper, but you cant tank(Hipper has better armor), shell high arc, try to dodge shell << armor like Pepsicola, AA~ trash, she is not a brawler (hipper can do it)

best solution >> hard grind in Operation

yeah I'm used to the high dpm soviets so I struggle with the slow shell speed of the french. Long range I struggle to hit cruisers. And because its long reload, I can't support the DD like I do with my Chappy. Looks like farming BB is the only thing Algerie is good at I suppose.

sail up saw bb use speed boost shoot and wasd hax also use island cover

your gimmick is speed boost, with speed boost on hard for bb to hit you..no speed boost time to kite dont be the target but still use your guns to burn bb

always keep moving find cover play smart even in T9 match it's not that bad as the ship have the range

i actually have some fun with algerie even in t8 t9 match, be the annoying ship that enemy team think its a easy kill and make them fail

I have to admit that facing her I don't mentally class Algerie at the same threat level as other T7 cruisers like Belfast, Fiji, Shchors even Myoko, but more of an Aoba-level or even Furutaka-level annoyance.

I'm sure you can have a great game with that ship and score tons of damage (as you can with an Aoba), just that in my experience they do not leave the impression on the battlefield as being all that powerful.

Like the Aoba, it's probably a ship where you have to be resigned to contributing in lots of small moments rather than a few great ones. Focus on support, survival, and chipping away at the enemy bit by bit.

You can try long range flanking where you try to catch broadside using your speed , zipping around flanks and spread fires. I find that french ships are fast enough to shift angles and are not as constricted into being second line firesupport
