Anyone a good player in French DDs?

I'm currently at the Fantasique and am really struggling with it. Would appreciate some pointers if you don't mind.

PM me and I can send some replays as well.

Cheers in advance, Puggs 

Some numbers to tell the sorry tale.

I just finished grinding and really enjoyed the ship. Here are some advices:

- equip speed boost upgrade

- be very aggressive.you can bully most ships 1v1 or even 1v2

- Don't save on MBRB

- I didn't use a lot of Torps. Guns are the main weapon. Switch to AP on broadside cruiser

Check out this replay:

I'm mostly guns as well, trying to engage at 11km plus. I've got your set up.

Looking to bully enemy DDs if possible, has been hard with the seemingly endless supply of 2 CV games and getting focused. 

Its fun, but I'm struggling to work with the team well. 

Thanks for replay will have a look tonight.

I can't numbers like @sfcgx3, but do well enough in Fantasque. Some games I gunboat, but the signature move of this DD has to be the yolo rush on the enemy BBs. Paulo Emilio with the training wheels off.

If you are getting endless 2xCV games, try playing them at a different time of day

What sort of ranges are you guys engaging at?

11+ has been what I have been trying, but I think under 12 my WASDing is not quite up to the mark yet.

Wasd will only get you so far. The trick is to engage targets unable or unwilling to shoot back, or ships with guns poorly suited to sniping DDs.

The more dangerous it is, the further back you have to be.

Closer range is fine. The key is not to get focused. Escape when that happens - you have the speed.

Not as fast as the Hipper though, so be careful of them.
