I'm hoping the answer is Black, as that's the one I'm least bad in...!

 

I would have thought that Musashi has a good shout overall - no CVs, so her poor AA doesn't really matter, and those guns!

The question is: how relevant will BBs really be in a game mode where a lot depends on snatching buffs? This sounds like DD playground, so big guns don't matter, but the same can't be said about Radar.

Yeah same! Honestly, when I see an enemy Black I get immediately worried :D. Musashi is definitely a good pick but I think that she doesn't react very well in intense situations (daaamn that turret traverse) but still I guess its up to the players skill and map awareness.

Its dd game mode, and it radar must mode so Black only have both in overall good package. And i repeat myself, in all competetive mods premium need to be banned because we all know they wont make it balanced.

Musashi is tanky as all hell if you know how to position her, and the guns are awesome, but isn't Arms Race all about going forwards and taking objectives? She's definitely better with a bit of range to work with, because up close it can be really difficult to keep her turrets on target. They are glacially slow. Also, she's not terribly good at repositioning.

 

I would think as BBs go the JB would be a good bet. She's mobile and can hold her own in a brawl with the reload booster.

 

Personally, the only choices I have are the Musashi, Kronshtadt and Izumo, and... yeah, I won't be playing the Izumo. I guess I could have not sold the Neptune but... eh, I hated playing that ship and I probably wouldn't do very well with it in ranked. I think Kron can be very good for this, so that may end up being my go-to ship if I decide to try my hand at ranked.

USS Black because Arms Race...

Missouri is fine too but can only compete with USS Black with a good DD (USS Black) on her team that secures her some concealment buffs so she can stealth radar.

I guess some dds can with stealth buffs be almost completely invisible. 30% more stealth on a already 5.5km boat?

 

Also more healing on battleships would be nice. Will have to pick some anti destroyer skills.

Im gonna be playing a 19p kitakaze, should be pretty sweet. Musashi should do well if there are a lot of bbs in the matches, otherwise useless.

 

I wonder how the kronshtadt will perform? I mean its got the radar for anti dd, and great guns if enemy cruisers show broadside, but no stealth, no hydro and massive size... No clue how she will perform

The meta is very strong for DD in Arms Race, keeping that in mind just add smoke and radar to have the perfect ship.

 

Kitakaze is the second strongest option after Black IMO. (Although if it were possible to use Belfast would be the clear choice in any tier or parallel universe, the closest thing is Black).

BTW am I right that spotter planes can't see torps any more (well, as of Thursday)? If so, with lots of DDs likely to be in play, won't that somewhat increase the vulnerability of BBs, compared to usual?

I see this season being potentially the most played ever, as player run from Randoms because of the CV rework and ranked will be the only mode guaranteed not to have CVs... :cap_old:

 

Extreme burnout, quick matches and a potential sense of continuous powerlessness, and then the rework have the potential to be the peak of membership, followed by the biggest drop in active players. But I may be wrong.

No only competitive bb which can play ranked have radar not plane.

Imho the alaska might become a beast in this mode. With 3-4 concealment buff it can stealth radar and his radar is very long, it has the accuracy to blap dds and cruisers, and at 10 kms range his guns become very scary even for bbs and with the 36mm belt you can bait bbs shot ( and you are relatively immune to hean bart). It is also more agile than the missouri and the faster reload make it imho scarier than the mighty mo

Does JB have some kind of crazy XP multiplier like Sims?  She has a farily lousy WR% and unremarkable dmg yet sits 2nd in the XP chart for T9 behind Black.

No idea, I don't have her (yet). Might have the coal for her soon, though.

 

If I'm going to guess, I suspect at least part of the reason is that people use her to shoot at cruisers a lot.

I'm seeing allot of people using the Black for a DD, but also Alaska is going to be top pick for cruiser, if not anything just because it's gonna get released so everyoe will be jumping to get her. :cap_yes:

I think i read somewhere reliable that Alaska will not make it into this patch due to much workload on the CVs.

So i don't know if you should add her to that poll....

Personally i think i will use either Dimitri or Kronstadht. maybe even Missouri or a tashkent :) lot of possibilities.

Just bought the Musashi to molest bow in radar cruisers orally.

Otherwise i would never play this ship, but it will be really strong in T9 only without CVs.

Then kindly bring us someone who can! 

This is damn outrageous... 

 

P. S. You should've scrap the entire CV nonsense... Planes in surface based game.
