What ship(s) are you preparing for the coming Ranked Sprint season?

The Ranked Sprint season 1 is coming and it features Tier V game play.

Also, the first season will have 6v6 battles while the second season features 8v8 team play.

Ranked Sprint is rapidly approaching, which vessels in your Fleet will get the call?

inb4 entire thread is Giulio Cesare and Kamikaze variants.

If only I had these in my port...

As it is I’ll be using my Marblehead with my 17pt Seattle captain.  I’m hoping being able to use a high skilled captain without the need to retrain will make up for the shortcomings of the ship.

Very bad idea. Marblehead and Omaha class ships are wayyyy too soft. 

Any BB will citadel you at almost any angle. Most at any angle. You'd do better in an Iron Duke or Nicholas.

When does it start? I thought it started today?

Planning to run my Texas because most of my T5 ships are either sold or have low skill captains on them. Not going to pay 200k+ elite xp to move a captain on then move them back after.

Don't forget this sexy gal

Kami/Gremmy will be no less of an iconic duo than Kami/Giulio Cesare. Each has its benefits: you get better DPM with Kami/GC, and better anti-DD power with Kami/Gremmy

Kami/Gremmy will be no less of an iconic duo than Kami/Giulio Cesare. Though the latter will still probably be better, because higher assured DPM rocks.

Methinks Kami Gremy pairs are going to be everywhere. I will run Konig and Gremy mostly, I think. 

So glad I can finally play T5 ships as T5s and not de facto T7s. Keep hoping that WG will finally exhibit some customer orientation and revert the T4 restricted matchmaking, but at least we have this.

The funny thing is Wargaming is hyping this as Ranked for the NEW GUYS. You know the guys that may have only three, tech tree, ships at tier five. Best captain a level 6 or 8. Newbies! pay attention to the above posts and comments. Probably a good idea to wait till Sunday to start this Ranked season. The CCs on YouTube are bragging they'll have this done in a long day. Of course you could division with someone really good, ride their coattails up the ladder. I'll start tomorrow with tier ten level skills on my captains, only "supership" I have is Caesarea. I'll play Koenig, Konigsberg, Nicolas, Oktober Rev., Furious Taco and Murmansk. I'll run the rest out just for fun. All you tier ten commandos out there, come on and play, just leave the level nineteen captains up at tier ten. Where they belong. As the kids at work say, "Just sayin'"

I'll start w/the best DD there is at T5 (that's right...even better that the OP Gremy)...the Emerald. Guns might be a bit week if it's a BB heavy meta but it can still take any BB out w/just 1 side of the torps & kites pretty good for when the smoke can't conceal you in time.
