Guys what are the most OP T8 ships that you will use for the upcoming ranked?

I'm only interested in T8 as I have a pretty good idea about with T9 or 10 I will be using.

Tech Tree suggestions:

- NC, Amagi, Vlad

- Balti, Chapy, Edin

- Lightning, Aki

- AvP, Shokaku

I'd rate NC above almost all other BBs including prems if I'm honest

, Amagi,

A really underrated ship in ranked.  I used it in the last T8 ranked and it proved to be extremely potent.

HE spamming Amagi is quite annoying in randoms

If you are HE spamming in Amagi; you are playing her wrong

I did very well in Indomitable last T8 ranked. Since there are a few less ships, I can find a gap and bomb the enemy CV to oblivion.

Ohhhhh hahahaha

Yeah, pretty common when noobs default to IJN or USN to see those BBs using HE

This sounds fun.  I really like Indomitable, it's just not particularly good at winning, being very one-dimensional.  It is generally quite effective at hitting the enemy CV hard though.

I'll probably use Lightning or Saipan, depending on whether I feel like playing CV or DD.

I can't see any reason to go past Bronze league, so I'll just play through that each week and then not do qualifying.  The higher leagues, especially Gold, is about 10 times the effort for very slightly more rewards.  Just like the smart way of playing the previous type of ranked is just to play a few games till rank 11, there is little point in going past Bronze in the new ranked.  Plus tier 8 inter-class balance is way better than tier 10.

I will bring the Iron Chancellor for sure. And probably Lightning, Mainz, and the Airship Designer.

If I manage to reach the Silver League: Musashi, Drake, Lion, JB.

Gold League: Kremlin, Venezia, Yoshino, Mino (radar of course), Daring, Midway.

Hmm. So I haven't seen much mention of the ships I'm fond of at tier 8, namely Prinz Eugen, Hipper and Tirpitz.

I'll probably bring Anchorage, and Dudpitz, and only shoot AP.

I'm think the "detected if you fire main guns in smoke and any enemy is within 8kms", has been removed on Anchorage.

Any ship which is good at close-range-brawl such as Tirpitz, Prinz Eugen and Massachusetts is recommended.

OK here's my shortlist - only selecting from ships I do have:

- DD: Lightning

- BB: Odin, Vlady, Massa (maybe)

- CA: Balti, Tallinn

- Probably skip CV due to low skill level...

Hope this can get me to Silver league, and then Smaland+Thunderer all the way. Maybe a bit JB and Alaska/Agir.

And then, only then my first steel ship after playing ~2 years may come within reach.
