Fiji Rank experience and ranking out

Just curious to understand other people's Season 6 experience with Ranked and the Fiji? Looking at the stats a lot of Fiji players seem to have stopped at R10 on the Asia server. Not sure how many have ranked out (I feel lucky and relieved to have made it)

 

I do apologise to anyone on my team who suffered some bad moments during the middle season as I was learning what I could and couldn't do in this ship. It is so fragile that any minor mistake gets punished severely. Despite attracting a lot of criticism as I as simple 'not a Belfast' I ended up with more compliments that complaints than when I started.

 

From my experience I feel this is a very powerful ship,  not equal tier with the Belfast, but with RPF and extended Hydro I felt I was not far off it.

Best thing was you could provide a lot of utility on a flank and if you timed it right you could take out the DD+Cruiser combo that was often isolated without losing too much health.

Not having Radar was not a huge issue but the concealment advantage Belfast has did make it hard to close the gap on them. 

Definitely not a ship that could SOLO flank so the worst moments were when the DD or BB I thought was supporting me either died or turned away. (in one case gave up his smoke to the enemy which they used to punish us quickly)

Only 50% of the time was chat effective in getting people to understand the idea or hold their position.

After a while I just gave up relying on my team and took the safest possible position even though it meant losing opportunities to strike.

 

Overall I am glad I struggled through the bad part as the last few matches were rewarding and did get some ROFL moments when I saw DD's run from a cap when they saw me push in even though they had the advantage.

(Same as in one match when I held up a BB + 2 DD's behind an island who just couldn't push around from fear of something - by the time they did the rest of their team was dead anyway)

 

--So any of you other Fiji captains rank out? How did you manage it?

-- Did anyone else use RPF to an advantage? (I think this skill can be a curse as well if not used wisely)

Fiji is a good ship for ranked...if she's in the right hand ofc. If you know how to use her right, she can be the most dangerous Cruiser in ranked.

I used Fiji for ranked too but only with CE and not enough points to get RDF...yet but still i'm too lazy for ranked and can't put up with the salt so now i'm stuck with rank 18 or sth.

Fiji has one advantage over Belfast and that is the Repair Party which makes her last longer than the Belfast who's probably getting focused on when spotted due to her infamous P2W status or sth.

You should keep going to R10 - pretty easy ride and the rewards are worth it. Below R10 --- thats when things get wobbly.....

My luck with Ranked MM is pretty bad so i'll pass.

Besides, Ranked is almost over so there's not enough time for me to grind. :teethhappy:
