I wonder how long a Chapayev could last in a match? The new 2-minute radar cooldown could be a huge anti-Benson asset...

 

I might try it, at least in the "easy" tier-VIII ranks.

Need some information regarding the rank structure because the mechanics of advancment caused far more grief than the two tier system.

 

I'm looking forward to it, but concerned it's going to be the grating painful system of S4

 

PS: Please sell Anshan before S5 starts so use Lo Yang drivers can use our captain in both brackets ^^

Thanks for the update, Pigeon!

 

Any clues on how far back we will be set?  I made it to R14 in S3, and was set back to R18 in S4.  Made it to R11 in S4, so maybe I won't have to use a T6?

Tier 6 is always fun so will break out the Warspite or Buddy I am thinking, maybe the Cleveland.  Tier 8 I am not sure.  I have four Tier 8s I feel might be competitive there.  Atago, Tirpitz, Hipper, and Amagi......definitely not Mogami or New Olreans I am thinking.   Atago would be more competitive than Hipper, Amagi hits hard and better range, Tirpitz is brawler though.  Didn't do a lot of brawling last season.

This could be an interesting choice.  I have not gotten anything above the Buddy yet.  Chappy has great range can light some fires but will see a lot of Kutuzov's, and Atago's which seem to dominate as T-8 cruisers

Disagree. It is a competitive arena, much more so than PvP. You are usually hurting your team;s chances if you bring the lower tier in a 2-tier encounter (with few exceptions). Bringing a stock ship is not a good idea either. You should bring your best ship for the tier, with your best captain. Stock ships belong in PvE or PvP for grinding. Ranked, although it contributes to the grind, is not the place for it. Bring the best you've got and the ones you are good at. 

 

But some times there are ships a tier lower that by nature of how they are built/played are more effective than bringing the same tier ship.  Not to mention it sucks having to change what ships you are using for ranked each season, because of swapping captains or having limited ship slots etc..

At tier 6, expect a lot of Bayerns, possibly New Mexicos if Bayerns don't fare as well in ranked. Expect to see Clevelands for AA, and Budyonnys. Nurnbergs and Aobas don't seem to do as well. And expect World of Farraguts and Anshans; gunboat/'fleet' DDs do well in ranked. 

Probably a decent number of Fubukis too if the tech tree arrangement happens.

 

Also, in that case, the T8 bracket will probably become World of Downtiered Khabarovsk Akuzuki.

Hm.  Don't have anything T8 yet and I don't think I'll have time to buy and grind up anything in that tier by October.  I suppose I could buy a T8 premium but they's expensive.... I'll probably just plan to make a run to Rank 16 for the flags n' stuff and leave it at that.

 

Yep.  Same.   Now, I made it to level 11 in season 4.  Not sure where they'd start me out for season 5, but if it's less than lvl 16, I won't be able to participate, as I don't have a T8 ship.   Hmmm.....

Can you use premium ships in ranked play?  I really enjoy Atago.

You know, 155mm Mogami will be interesting for Ranked. Since there will be lots of destroyers, her high DPM guns will come in useful. But then her turret traverse sometimes messes things up.

Tier 8 ships? I think this will be the Rank 1 reward

Yes, any Tier 8 (and 6 for the lower bracket).

Probably a bit longer since there are fewer ships around to fire at it, but in any case, the same as in a regular match: until a BB gets it in range.

Not sure I like the mono-tier idea or not, I'd rather they just keep people from using stock ships though. 

 

Stock or not... It will be the skill of the player don't you think?
