My personal preference is Tier 9 for a ranked season or Tier 8 if you must have CV's. We do enough with Clan Battles at Tier 10. 

The game wears on you if you are always playing the same ships vs the same people. 

Switch it up War Gaming. It would be a better choice to use a different tier ship this time around. 

What would you choose as a player?

Anywhere from tier 7 through 9, perhaps even as low as tier 6, but probably not.  I'd prefer that Ranked Sprint be in tiers 5 or 6, and save tiers 7 to 9 for regular Ranked.

we just had t9 and it sucked if you weren't a dd main .  i think id rather go up against a chance at cv's in tier x  then face so many kitakaze's again 

and id like t6 ranked either no cv's  or full 12v12 with cv's

I would be interested in a tiered approach with irrevocable ranks. 

RXX-R11: Tier 10 

R10-R6: Tier 9

R5-R1: Tier 8. 

Or in reverse. 

irrevocable at Ranks 10, 5, 1

thats the way it used to be and the best season i thought was when  ranks up to 15 were like t5-t6

to rank 1 was t7-t8  split into two leagues

Would rather see a ranked with no premium ships.

10 is still the most balanced. Other tiers all have one or three premium ships that tend to dominate in the right hands. 

Having said that, I'd vote for T7. T8 CBs was not fun.  Cruisers have too low DPM.  Baltimore can barely get 2 salvos off before radar runs out. Kutuzof and Belfasts were dominant.  Lots of premium T9s would dominate at that tier.

No effing way in hell!!!  I paid good money for my premium ships, and I damned well want to be able to use them!!!  I don't want to have to  spend real money or waste Elite Commander's XP to move my best captains when I should be able to just put them into the premium ships I PAID FOR!!!   :Smile-angry:

Nonsense.  ANY ship, premium or tech tree can dominate "in the right hands"!!!

T hese were my Top Boats at Tier 9 Ranked. None were a Kita and the only premium was the Musashi which I rarely played. Kitakaze wasn't nearly as much of a problem as the Smolenlsk will be.

This.

Screw WG and their high tiers.

Sprint should be about what it says; a sprint, hopefully with fun thrown in. They should keep their high tier stress fest where it belongs in regular Ranked.

Yup.

I ran Udaloi just to see if I could...131 games with only 51% WR and 50k avg damage. It was fun, and I developed a great appreciation for the ship, but once I got to tier 5, I could no longer effectively compete with the Kitakaze spam.

Smolensk will destroy this ranked season.

Does not really matter to me.  I have a port full of ships from T5 to T10 all with their own 19 point captains and complete builds with special upgrades and anything else I might want.

Huh???  Belfast is T7, which negates your argument for Tier 7 over Tier 8

:cap_like:

Honestly, I think that they need to rework regular Ranked.  As currently structured, it's too damned boring, too damned grindy, too damned long.  It's supposed to be a contest to reward good play, but there's too damned much luck thrown into the mix with MM and the requirement that winning is the only metric of success.
