Actually did not expect to find ranked fun. The teammates are just as bad. but having a new meta of only t8s to play changes things a lot. 

Surprisingly doing a lot better in Takao than Tirpitz.

I agree though i'm bias because I love the Alabama too much. Do want to try Takao, so far have used Mogami once or twice, but playing Alabama in T8 only games is just too much fun.

Turns out Takao bounces Cleveland AP =) (dunno why they didn't try HE the whole time) And her HE pens everything on Cleveland

But Baltimore definitely pens at high angles.... =( 

Also, AP on Richy even top deck is really bad. Its really frustrating. But the HE is good.

T8 ranked was a blast, blitzed through it in my Massachusetts. It was over too soon.

I have had a lot of success with Mogami using the 155mm guns, she is great DD killer. Often I escorted DDs in Ranked since if you have Concealment Expert and Concealment Mod on it your detection Range drops below 10km. Also the Torps and HE are deadly to BBs and not bad against other CAs either.

why can't this be the normal game play... =( 

So much more in favor of +1 -1 random MM now.

It's a pity it ends at rank 15 and forces tier 10's stagnant garbage gameplay from then on.

I didn't get a chance to play my tier 8 botes this Ranked season since I had a high enough Rank on the last season to boost me to Rank 15 this season. And I only played 2 battles in Hindenberg to get the star needed for the flag. That last Ranked, season 9, was the only time in a long time that I enjoyed playing my tier 8 botes because it wasn't like the majority of the time when I drive my tier 8s in Randoms where I'm outnumbered bottom tiered fodder for tier 10s.

My brother liked tier VIII ranked quite a bit. You get to use some of the ships that are mostly just target practice for tier Xs now.

I'm really bummed out!

Just made it to 15 and went back to port and my NC is unusable from this point forward! Are you kidding?

I play a couple of rounds a day. I'm not a hardcore Capt and don't expect to win every round but when WG finally made a move to use higher tiered ships I was thrilled. At tier VIII it eliminates the silly bozo tire kickers that don't worry about strategy or listen to teammates. At that level the players are more serious and seem to work together. Last season I used Bismarck and switched to my NC but ran out of time a couple of days later when it closed.

This season I've played from the 2nd day and been having a great time! It's reignited my interest in playing. Everybody's working together and the matches have been really close, win or loose and have used my NC the entire time! I have fought from rank 22 and a couple of hours ago cleared 15 and when I got back to port it's suddenly tier 10! wth? Now I'm stuck using my Grosser Kurfurst? Come on....

I don't read all the bulletins, I log on to play. Not read a half hours worth of stuff then play. I'm sure this dumb idea was covered somewhere but who thinks this s*^t up?

S.S.

I got to play all of two games before it was over. Those two games were a blast. 

 

This is proof of why ranked isn't good how it is. I shouldn't be disappointed and upset that I ranked up, I should look foreward to raking up more.
