Zoup let out that the next ranked season will be T10's. CV's will make their debut. 8 vs 8 format. I'm not a fan of CVs in competitive. Smols though? Eh, I have one. So I can live with that. It's gonna e painful grind though.

One word for you on all that: Kleber.

 

Between Cvs and dealing with Kleber 2 competitive types in a row, no thank you to ranked.

Any tier other than T10 would've been highly welcomed in this case.

With that being said, I really, really wish WG would try out a multi-tiered Ranked season at some point in the future.  For example:

R25-R20: T6 ships only

R19-R15: T7 ships only

R14-R10: T8 ships only

R9-R5: T9 ships only

R4-R1: T10 ships only

At least in this case, there becomes greater ship variety throughout a single season, while (hopefully) reducing burnout from spamming the same few ships at the same tier all the way to R1 (or whichever rank you choose to stop at).  There's going to be a point where everybody gets sick of fighting the same Colbert/Smolensk/Haragumo spam ships all the way through the ranks.

And I'm going to love the challenge of playing DD in it.

Kléber

Kléber have counter, play Movska (also have good AA and good against Smolensk), Daring, Z52, La République, Le Bourgogne, Khabarovsk and some other. Don't forget he have very bold playstyle without smoke and heal.

I m wait the beginning of season, my Khabarovsk will rule the sea.

I'm pretty sure they did something like this a while back and people hated it.

There were two tiers and iirc, it was something like R12-R25 were T8 and below that was TX.

I'm guessing you haven't played many, if any, CBs this season.

Didn't they also change the protected rank from R12 to R10 with the tier split? I think that was where a lot of the hate was directed since it kept more people in the 10 and lower bracket.

It's been awhile though so I could be wrong.

asashio/conq/cv and smolensk are just a few lazy attempts by poor game developers at closing the skill gap

In no world is 63 100, my friend. The stats show you aren't handling Kleber well, either. There's a reason for that, very, very few are, the only real counter to a Kleber right now is...another Kleber, or lots of Klebers. Kleber, for competitive, is broken. Hell, it's broken in Randoms. It's a mini HIV that's harder to hit, harder to find, with a higher RoF, and no citadel.

But i don't have some problem to manage enemy Kléber with some of ship. I m to aggressive with Kléber, and i not train them a lot. I prefer Khaba, i play him close playstyle of Kléber, but i have more experience.

Smolensk is a pretty good counter to Kleber.

They used to do this (maybe not quite so many tier changes, but a few). But apparently the players preferred just one tier. And it’s also annoying going through a win/loss/win/loss cycle right at the cusp of a tier change as you have to flip between ships, making practicing aim more difficult etc.

40% CV is hard counter to purple magics...you know, like rock paper scissors......   I intentionally keep all my T10 CVs in the 40% range so I can have this extra advantage.  Color us short bus bullies.  There is no counter to our power that I am aware of, maybe setting up sneaky AA blob trap which us window lickers will fall for every time.  The lure of such a big smear of red targets is unavoidable to the less IQ than shoe size crowd.

Tonight I am going to start playing my Kleber with a full AA build plus flags etc.

 

Is there a better camo that from above looks like water.  What camo do CV’s hate the most?

I would agree that Radar Cruisers have been the most effective against my Kleber.  I can’t single out one.
