But for you, do what you do.  We can guess all we want, but it’s ranked and surprises abound.  I cover what you’ll see, what you probably won’t.  But y’all know this.  Doesn’t take a YTer to tell you this....

Thanks Zoup for the video, I will have to sit this one out since I have no tier 8 ships, but good luck to you and everyone else.

Any smart DD will send torps into smoke. Best ship for T8 ranked will be LoYang. 

Lo Yang or Kidd... but half the torps really hurts the Kidd

Been spending the past 2 days going through the inventory and I'll probably end up taking the Kutuzov as well. I used Vigilance rather than DE for when torps come calling in smoke like what almost happened to you.

 

My headache in the past is when folks don't bring their "A" game. Oh, you should also mention one of your prior videos of 5 worst things to do in ranked.

I'm leaning heavily towards Tirpitz/Bismarck due to the secondaries alone.

I think the criticism of the New Orleans is off a bit.  One item not mentioned..  let's see.....

RADAR....RADAR....RADAR....RADAR....RADAR....RADAR...

New Orleans and Chappy have Radar.

New Orleans also has Enterprise/Shokaku chopping AA, even without DF.

No Destroyers (or group) at T8 can stand up against a New Orleans with both Hydro and Radar.

Anybody who did Clan Battles knows what a Des Moines can do. 

New Orleans lacks health and heal..  but it won't be seeing T10 either.

Get ready for a surprise here.

Bought back the Chappie to see how I can be an asset bringing 11km radar into ranked.  Lo Yang will also be an option.  Will most likely try Bis/Tirp and Alabama.  Nice thing, so many good options to try....Atago, Kag with torp reload booster, Azi, CM... going to be fun

Lots of luck hunting DDs without HE. 

Sure, it's possible, but all a DD has to do is show you a broadside, and they are all over-pens.

Sorry, but overpens with english AP? No, you can easy hit for 4k dmg for salvo, the problem with Edin its the enemy AP. o7

My concern for the Kutuzov is the size of the maps. But a random game with more targets, less savvy players, it's very easy to spam HE at max range. But with less targets, the change to smoke firing...I fear this ship will be no were near as effective as it is in randoms.  Try hitting dds or cruisers at 15k, darn near impossible. the maps and game mode will force ships into closer contact and conflict, all of which is bad for the Kut.

I gonna play my Prinz, if are many CVs and german BBs, can tank some dmg against theirs, and have very good AAA. If are American BBs, maybe NOrleans or Kutu. Anyway, imho we gonna see a lot of BBs and DDs. My BB choice its betwen Tirpz and NC. Not have Japan BBs.

Alabama or North Carolina; possibly Amagi or Kii. But I like the robustness of the Americans, provided you are decent at angling.

A salvo Of AP from the Kutuzov on a broadside CA will wreck it quick

The British cruisers are excellent at taking advantage of stupidity and confusion... but they're too inflexible for small-team play. You couldn't pay me to take one into ranked.

New Orleans' AA is garbage; it has barely more than Mogami once you take away the 20mm Oerlikons in her inner bubble (which is where half her AA power is, rendering it almost useless).   Do you consider Mogami's AA good?
