We all know that there will be TONS of Kamikaze, Cesare, Kongo.

 

But what else are we going to see ?

 

  • Who will dominate the caps ?
    Nicholas with high DPM ? Kami still outspots her by 400m and we don't have spotting delay anymore.
     
  • What cruiser will be the best support ?
    Omaha with her high RoF and HE DPM ?

 

(Edit: Yes, I know that Kami will rule them all, and I will play mine, especially with the removal of spotting delay. Question is however, what else we are going to see. Not everyone has a Kamikaze/Cesare.)

IF I try out a cruiser in that one, I'll give the Furry Taco a try. It can overmatch most cruiser armor and can bounce a decent amount of T5 BB shells. Unless the BBs fire HE...

 

 

If that doesn't work out. Pasta Bote or IJN OP DD

Grems can be devastating with its guns, so it shouldn't be underestimated. 

 

On cruisers, Omaha and Furutaka can do great, but Murmansk is better Omaha ...

Almost certainly will run Marblehead with a 19-point Cleveland captain. That thing does horrible things even with the T5 MM in Randoms.

Depends on the rewards, if I play or not... Still fed up from the current season...

 

IF I play, I'll take probably the "most troll ship" out, just because I can:

 

Октябрьская революция

I am actually very glad about this. It is time that lower tiers get some love.

 

Now, what will be better combo (as you can play as 2 ship div) :

 

1. Kami + Giulio (for pure OP)

2. Kami + Emile (for support)

3. Emile + Giulio (for support)

 

Could be Omaha/Marblehead instead of Emile, etc....

Cruisers: maybe Murmansk or Königsberg. I dont expect too much Cruisers.

 

BB: Cesare. If plenty of Cvs: maybe Texas.

 

DD: Kami. Backup maybe Ochotnik.

That thing is a bit slow and as soon as the Cesares have flushed your 5 DCP down the toilet, Kamis will have their way with you. But yeah, we might see quite a few of these.

She is a bit faster and more maneuverable, but has worse torpedoes and guns.

Still you can play this around the caps very nicely, I am sure.

Furutaka might be a cruiser choice, packs a heavy punch with those 203mm and useable torpedoes too.

Let's not forget the Okhotnik.

 

That ship's pure alpha in both guns and torps is ridiculous and though the latter are short ranged there is literally no better ship at that tier to just hold  a chokepoint by sheer deterrence alone since nobody wants to catch 12 torps.

 

That one divisioned up with a Kamikaze for spotting and there's very little that could actually threaten their position.

I think we should not forget HE spam Iron Duke. The HE Fuso was seen often during T6 ranked. Plus Iron Duke can HE Citadell Cruisers.

I also believe that Okhotnik has a good package:

 

-Monster Alpha

-Good DPM with high shell speed

-Crazy short-range tordeo-threat

-Good concealment

 

But the reason I will still pick Kami over this is the 300m spotting advantage and the better versatility that comes from stealth-torping.

Problem with her is that she's one of the slowest Tier V Battleships, has extreme slow turrets, no real torpedo damage reduction and while one of the best HE spammer at Tier V she herself burnes like dry hardwood... Hot and bright.
