With tier ten and arms race...

Wondering how this will play out with all of the new toys many players have received recently. Ships like Thunderer and Smolenks, Colbert, Yoshino and Puerto Rico plus Somers, have become much more accessible since the snowflake and xmas events... Combined with an arms race mode...

Going to be interesting for sure. Imagine improved rate of fire on some of these ships? kek….

CVs could negate DDs and spot for the long range Yoshino's and BBs. No CVs then DDs might do well - kind of a crap shoot choosing what to bring in that regard speaking as a DD player.

On PTS I ran Thunderer and Minotaur (if I died and Thunderer was still in battle). Enjoyed it a lot. Both of them are loltastic with maxed-out fire rate buffs. Minnie is one solid stream of smoke tracers, and Thunderer reloads like a Buffalo with 18" rifles and Tier X battleship armor and HP. I had one runaway game with Minotaur where I had maxed fire rate buffs and melted a nearly full-health, broadside Grosser Kurfurst in I think about 20 seconds from 10 km.

The game mode does kind of lend itself to ROFLstomps, though, as an aggressive team that successfully grabs the majority of the buffs will simply run away with the game.

I predict that I'm going to endure the minimum number of battles to get the 200 Steel I need, and then breathe a sigh of relief. 

I predict that I'm not going to be great at it.

I predict it will be easier than you anticipate. 

  • You can't lose a star in Rank 18 & 17
  • Ranks 18 - 15 are irrevocable
  • You get a bonus star for each new rank you achieve up to Rank 11

You only need to make it to Rank 16 to get 200 Steel.

So starting from scratch, that's only a few wins?

Yes sir.  Three wins should do it.

Edit: or is it two wins because you get a bonus star going from 18 to 17?

When this was discussed before, I decided on the Hindenberg, since it's the tier X I'm most comfortable with. 

Just for discussion, my other tier Xs are:

  • Grosser Kurfurst
  • Montana
  • Des Moines
  • Worchester
  • Smolensk
  • Zao
  • Z-52
  • Moskva (but I just got it, the captain isn't up to snuff yet, and frankly, I find it meh)

My experience was that destroyers didn't live very long. The buffs don't spawn immediately, so there's not a benefit to punching warp drive in Kleber and getting there faster, because you'll still be waiting another minute for it to spawn, during which the slower cruiser has gotten within range of you. Not saying it might not work well, though, I only played Thunderer and Minotaur for ranked on PTS.

DD's are fine . Players on pts are special...

season 11 of ranked was also arms race and dd's did very well , however there were no cv's .
