Tier VI Ranked Sprint - What'cha gonna bring?

I've just been going over possible ships to take since they mentioned the next Ranked Sprint will be Tier VI ships. Since the last time WG ranked for T6, they have added a number of new lines. I think we'll see a lot of T-61 this time around, but I'm curious what ships people are thinking of taking to ranked. I'm probably going to mostly DD, but I'll have a CA and BB warmed up and ready to go as well. My lineup will probably be, in order of preference:

DD:  Gallant (good concealment, speed, and a 16pt Jack Dunkirk Captain), Farragut B (for RoF and Smoke), or Fushun (DWT surprise and gun range)

BB: Warspite (slow, but good maneuverability and main guns, to keep building up Jack Dunkirk), Arizona (tanky, good HP), Normandie (the speed), Fuso (the range)  

CA: Molotov (Good Guns and speed), Nurnburg (DPM), Pensacola (High Alpha)

What is everyone else bringing, and what do you think we will see a lot of?

Perth might be fun.

Maybe Mutsu for overmatch.

Arizona accurate and more barrels than Warspite.

Aigle for DD counter.

Molotov (I have a 19 pt Russian CO)

Hmmmm......so many good choices at T6, depending on your preference:

  • DDs: Farragut, Gallant, Anshan, T-61, Z-39, Fubuki
  • Cruisers: DeGrasse, Molotov, Budyonny, Leander, Graf Spee, Huang He (you know someone will bring one)
  • BBs: Arizona, New Mexico, Warspite, WV '41 (maybe?), Fuso

Not sure what my ship(s) of choice will be yet, but I'm already looking forward to this season more than the last just for the shift in tier.  Should be a lot more of a level playing field compared to T5.

Warspite, Fuso and Bayern for BBs. German and USN BBs are my favorite but I can't afford to rebuy the t6 stuff at the moment, so limited to what I have.

For cruisers Galissonniere and, if I get it upgraded in time, Nurenburg.

Ryujo for cv as well, probably.

Not good enough at dds yet for ranked.

Budyonny is a better option instead of Molotov, due to her typical Russian rail guns, spotting plane, and the best Tier VI range for the main guns against other cruisers of the tier. Her armor layout is also not as fragile compared to the Molotov.

Warspite has the best accuracy for the main guns. The only drawback is that she has a huge superstructure and is considered a floating teabag due to catching fire very easily.

Fuso has the better range, but also wonky dispersion like a shotgun. You have to get a bit closer to get results, unless you want to be that type sitting in the back throwing HE. Oh god, I'm getting flashbacks from Ranked season 7.

Mutsu is too fragile, you're better off taking out the Fuso.

I'm surprised no one has mention the Dallas that replaced the Cleveland, but I guess not everyone is into playing a ship while island hugging.

BBs: Warspite for 381s. Maybe Arizona for 12 guns and accuracy.

DDs: Anshan, Fushun, T-61. 

Cruisers: Pretty useless I'd say. Maybe Spee.

T-61 as that is something I do well in. 

If I take a cruiser it will be Nurnberg or Graf Spee. 

For BB it will be Arizona.  Nice guns and great torpedo protection but weak AA.

You're right.  My bad.

T-61 will still be plenty capable in her absence.

Battleship : Warspite or Arizona

Cruiser : Molotov or Dallas

Destroyer : No way will I subject any teammate to my destroyer playstyle.  Talk about "end of days", it'll be the end of MY days if I ever do that.

T61 and Geade (done with grind but haven't bought Maas yet). Maybe Farragut. Anshan.

Dallas maybe for burn factor. Nurnberg. Graf Spee but not sure if dpm will keep up (but those torps, might help).

Warspite. Haven't done a lot of BBs to-date. WV 41 if available and it meshes.

I played my Mutsu during the last tier 6 ranked and did pretty well with her. Sunk a Bayern with my torps in one match. :Smile_Default:

I didn't have then a lot of the ships I have now, though. Might take out my T-61, Fuso or Warspite. With the recent buff to IJN DDs, I wonder how well the Shinonome would fair.

Another option is to kemp islands in my Dallas and lob HE at everything. Hmmm...

Shinonome would be at least as good as Fubuki. I'd most likely go with T-61.

Agree on the many good choices ... T6&7 have become my favorite tiers.  Didn't even play the first sprint.

There will be two types of ships in the next ranked, victims and T-61s.

I’ll probably run my Mutsu again, though T-61 makes a tempting alternative.
