What ships will people use? 

 

CV: Shokaku , Enterprise 

BB: NC, Alabama, Kii, Amagi, Tirpitz/Bismarck (?)

CA/CL: Kutuzov, Edinburgh, Charles Martel, Chapayev, Atago

DD: Loyang, Kidd, Benson, Ognevoi 

 

I see those are among the favourite, share your ideas!

Current on my port:

 

Kutuzov with a 18 point captain, soon 19 (i think it will be my main ship)

Chapayev without captain (18 point captain is on the Donskoi atm, don't want to retrain)

Amagi with a 14 point captain

BIsmarck with a 12 point captain

Benson with 14 point captain (i am 10k  xp away from fletcher and i'm not good with DD)

Edinburgh without captain (in fact i was going to sell it, just bought Neptune and kept fiji).

 

 

I think i'll play 80% Kutuzov and 20% Amagi

 

Wonder how Roma will be in ranked, i'll probably buy her but with a low captain i don't think it will be viable .

 

However, i usally reach rank 11 for doubloons and then stop for continue to play my silver ships.

 

Maybe this season i'll go further who knows

CV - Shokaku is only option in higher ranks

BB - probably all will fit with NC/Alabama and Tiro/Biz domination

CA/CL - Kutuzov, Atago, Edinburg, CHap

DD - Lo yang ans numero uno and than rest

T8, hmmm prob my Halloween Camo Kagero then.
Just unlocked the Z23 so i could use her too or my Benson which has been gathering dust for ages. 

Still not sent my 16pt captain to the DM yet so got the Chapayev too and i got an 18pt Bismarck captain and the Bismarck sat in port.

Benson / Atago / Charles / Z23, maybe the new Asian DD when I got him. Depending on the meta Kagero can be a choice. Shokaku only if there is a lot of potatoes playing CVs.

DD if I want to influence win. Atago if I want to try to top the score.

probably full of BBs again as always 

Too bad kutuzov got nerfed pretty hard by the smoke change, but still a powerful ship. 

 

Be interesting to see how the ranked season is like because T8 is full of competitive ships at the moment

First season with the new smoke rules, I wonder if that'll shake things up a bit?

Yes, obviously...but since ranked battles are just smaller random battles there will hardly be a "meta" evolving around it.

 

On topic: Will play a variety, depending on mood -

  • Lo Yang (good supporter and cap pusher, don't have Z-23)
  • Akizuki (DD hunter and strong AA)
  • Hsienyang (lol torps, smoke spam)
  • Kutuzov
  • Chapayev, (Never enough radar)
  • Full AA NC
  • Bismarck (never enough hydro)
  • Amagi (best guns at the tier)

Personally i will likely be using the Z23 and Admiral Hipper.

 

Admiral Hipper: Hydro. Can wreck other T8 cruisers with it. It can brawl like no other cruiser at T8

Z23: Hydro, fast reloading torp system, larger HP pool than all other T8 DDs.

 

The best overall DD would likely be the Lo yang, but pay boats are cancer, so its a no go.

I dont see the Roma being available during ranked season. Patch notes says the only ships from Regia marina for now will be the Giulio Cesare and the Duca D'Aosta, available as wallet warrior boats, and they are tier V and VII, so no Italien ships for ranked this time.

hmmmm Z-23 with Hydro and 155mm 150mm could be a nice beast in T8 only :))) 

:fish_glass:

 

yeah, the alpha can certainly make a difference in a knife fight. And Vs cruiser at ideal ranges and BBs showing broadsides.

Z-23 Hydro is only 4.4km. Loyang Hydro is 5.4km.

 

Sadly it will be the season of the premium DDs

#1 KIDD

#2 Loyang (#1 if only few Chapayev/NO) 

#3 Harekaze (maybe Benson. But why not get a KIDD then)

It feels really interesting to see that there are many good destroyers for this ranked season. Pretty much any DD is okay except Kagero and Kiev.

Also tier 8 cruisers could finally shine, without being uptiered so often like in random battles and without the usual 5 bb per side.

 

Apart from premium kutuzov and atago:

 

Chapayev and charles martel should be really good

Edinburgh and Mogami should be good

New Orleans should be good in skilled players hand.

Hipper and Eugen a little less, but still playable i think.

The Kiev can be very good, if used correctly, It will be the best doing solo runs on isolated bases. Also very good for recapping bases cause of its speed. And ofc for killing off enemy DDs.

 

I consider re buying it for ranked. Just got the extended boost time for it aswell.

Imo you underestimate the Hipper and Eugene.

They dont have the radar that Chapa and New orleans have, so not as much an asset to the team in that respect.

 

But i would rather be in Hipper/Eugene than any of the others when facing other cruisers. The AP is debatable the best of the bunch, the turtleback armor scheme the best, the HP pool the largest. Couple that with the best brawling ability's cause of its armor and torps makes it the best of the pack also.
