As a new player... I never have done arms race and the only T9/10 ship I own is JB...

 

even if it is just for the experience and the lowest tier rewards.... do you think JB would be viable?  I kinda think so from my short review of arms race and the JB's perks...

If your team gets the buffs, the JB can be devastating.

With its plating, it can also be a punching bag for daka ships.

You may find it very frustrating.

I used the Bourgogne last ranked season with much success. I'll probably just throw the same capt in JB and call it good.

I figure even if it is just for the experience it will be worth it :) hopefully  ingame chat isn't going to go where i expect it to... but that maybe just the cynic in me...

I've only done one ranked sprint, and that was a 1v1 T8. From what I recall, it was relatively popular, and since none of the ranks were revocable chat was...amicable. As far as I know, the typical rantfests are saved for regular ranked, so I wouldn't worry too much.

There are some situations where being in a JB is unfavorable compared to other T9 BBs but overall I think she's very strong.

  • Figure out where your friendly BB is positioning and use your speed to make a cross fire. Watch iChase's video if you need help with BB positioning.
  • Some times it pays to stay dark until you get a good shot on a broadside target or a DD. You'll see a lot of broadside cruisers fixated on capturing buffs in this mode.
  • Remember which cruisers can bow tank you (mainly US and German heavy cruisers + lower half of some Russian cruisers); in this case either shoot the turrets, the superstructure, or switch to HE. If they are broadside, then paddle them as always.

JB is over capable... A player who know, will do good with her. A player who is clueless in her, will exacerbates the snow ball affect  for the fleet.

Jean Bart, Musashi, Georgia, Alsace will probably hold their own for some of the T9 BB's. They will probably meet a onslaught of Kremlins, GK's, Republiq's, Yamato's, Yashima's, and Ohio's

I didn't have that much fun during that particular Ranked Sprint, mostly due to my choice in ships.  NC is a terrible choice for it btw.

Lots of things are possible if you are good and comfortable with a ship.  I still remember years ago some dude Ranking out with I think an Indianapolis, which is a bonafide POS.

Use a ship you are comfortable with.

Be warned, if you face some Musashi or Georgia, they may go for your guns in a closer battle.

Sprint is this time 12 vs. 12, it's just randoms in arms race mod.
