Last time we did tier 7 ranked I reached number 1 with the Italian Cruiser Abruzzi. This season Sinops have taken over ranked so I was trying all kinds of different ships to counter The Russian BB.

Personally I don't care for the Sinop's play style so I struggled using Scharnhorst, Haida, Lyon etc. Finally I have found success in a BB you don't see to often in ranked let alone random play anymore. The IJN Ashitaka. 19.9 Gun range and 410 mm. 

 This BB is accurate at extreme range and her guns hit a ton! HE is decent against DD's and my secondaries are ok since I put my 19 point Yamato Captain on her. She is fast and when angled correctly can take punishment. She is also turtle backed, so while taking damage at close range she is hard to citadel and her guns penetrate damn well. I am up to rank 9 now and am looking forward to see how far she can get me up the ranks. Those of you who have her, give her a ride and see what you think. GLHF!

Sinops must be prevalent in the upper tiers.

I just started. (T16-14,) and I’ve hardly seen any of them. I may have seen more Indianapolis’.

it's not that big of a secret if you just go look at server stats(that many people for whatever reason just hate)

ashitaka is currently the highest win rate BB in this season of ranked, with ashitaka/nelson/sinop being the only 3 above 53% wr

You hit Rank 12 and up you will see a minimum of 1 Sinop per battle with up to 6 Sinop being possible. 3 Sinop per battle seems to be the average.

I'm just taking the Helena. I tried Sinop and can't make it work, I tried Shira and it was okay but nothing special and Mahan was terrible. Scharnhorst was bang on 50% WR and it takes a spot that someone who can make the Sinop work would take.

Helena I'm at 59% WR, doing good damage, if I get a nice spot I can farm a huge amount of damage of Battleships to save stars. I might try taking out the Atlanta again though as well.

Helena's one of my favorite ships, However in this season of ranked, I'd switch to Boise if you have it do to the huge heal it gets.
