Sooooooooo the big news was announced yesterday on the website - ranked will be Tier 8. 

Feel free to participate in the poll above. 

I haven't given it much thought yet, but there are some pretty powerful battleships at Tier 8 (Amagi, North Cal, Roma), so its going to be a rough time for cruisers. However, the Chapayev has a nice radar, so I guess its going to be quite popular. But really I don’t know.

Have fun. :fish_cute_2:

My issue with Hipper is its slow DPM. The Hipper just can't put out enough damage quickly enough, and really is only effective with AP loaded and facing broadside cruisers (which I don't think you will run into much of in ranked). In ranked where opportunities are scarce you really need to convert every salvo to as much damage as possible. 

Hipper is nice for randoms though.

Sorry I can't get your point.....

Bring one and get deleted by a BB. Its concealment is worse than a NC. Its slow and turns badly. 

I dont think the Hipper is worthy to bring into ranked. Unless it got the HE buff. But then it's only going to be a support ship. Wont be a good ship to push in with.

NO would be quite good imho due to all it's recent buffs, half support half dpm and it can guar islands well

martel is going to be DPM+DOT, it can do both roles very well and reposition much easier then other t8 cruisers

edin isnt so great for rank anymore imho due to the smoke nerfs and the fact that it's not as good as a chappy or NO without smoke

MKs need to rethink bringing it into rank due to how DDs can now spot them from 8 km away in smoke, but is still a DMP monster that can somewhat double as a support

i dont think kii will be able to fufill a role as a BB much like the genis last season at T7 because the guns are iffy

the PADD T8 would be a intresting choice depending on how the meta is like, but i think that it'd be a very solid choise for rank due to how versitile it is

kagero/harekaze might be a intresting choice due to how good their concealment is, but it all depends on the ammount of radars and loyangs in the match

the other regulars from the last RB T8 are still the same 

atago, amagi, NC, loyang, benson, chappy bismark/depritz though  expect these 2 to not proform as well due to powercreep

The last time it was tier 8 ranked I used Benson. There have been a lot of mechanic changes and new branches since then though so I'm not sure what to play - there are too many competitive choices. Probably Amagi as BB, Atago as CA and Akizuki (or rebuy Benson) for DD.

This is starting in a few hours!

But as with the previous seasons, my excitement will die down to zero after the first two or three games. 

Because the inevitable mob of uncarryable potatoes will descend upon us!

The Lo Yang. Esp as I just spent $28 NZD and got one from the Santa crates, and 2000 dubloons.

 

About time I got something 1/2 decent form those, usually my luck sucks.

The trick is to grind really hard for 1-2 weeks & pull away from them as fast & efficient as possible, anyone who comes later will get stuck with them even longer. :cap_haloween:
