Iowa build for Ranked?

With the upcoming ranked season at Tier 9, I'm wondering what the optimal build for the Iowa is, as its my only ship at this tier. Currently, I have a fairly standard concealment and survivability build (with William Halsey), with Priority Target, Expert Marksman, Adrenaline Rush, Superintendent, Basics of Survivability, Fire Prevention, and Concealment Expert. Obviously I'm also using the Concealment Systems Mod in slot 5 and Artillery Plotting Room Mod in slot 6. However, I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to sacrifice Basics of Survivability for Expert Loader. With Halsey's improved skill, ammunition switch is possible in 7.5 seconds or less (with Adrenaline Rush).

I take EL over PT in my Halsey... in randoms that's a questionable decision, but in CBs and ranked I only have to keep track of 6 people, and I can swap shells by the time a radared ship shows up. 

 

Still debating if it is worth it... but hands down it is the only time EL works on a BB.

 

For upgrades, remember you want the range mod in slot 3, and the dispersion mod in slot 6

I think T9 ranked will be dominated by DDs, if you have to play a BB take the survivability stuff :)

I'm not so sure about that. Unlike the previous Tier 9 season, the game mode this season is Domination, which isn't quite as favorable towards destroyers.

I would rather use a ship that I have a fair mount of experience in, instead of spending credits or free XP on something that I have no prior matches in.

I imagine it will be very similar to last Ranked at T9. The usual armoured healing hydro radar gunboats.

Black

Jutland

Z-46

Kitakaze

Probably see new comers Neutrashimi and Mogador in the mix.

Maybe the occasional Udaloi and Tashkent. May see the occasional Benham and Fletcher making cameo appearances as well.

I shouldn’t have to spend money, especially not for ships that I would have no experience in.

Time is also money so either way you will spend
