T8 has a lot of good ships.  Sadly, it has a LOT of good BBs, which is why the queue has 90+ BBs in it, and single digits of others.

Lots of BB's but it seemed pretty balanced so far.. 2ish DD's and 2ish cruzers and a carrier and the rest BB's.   Only one blowout out of about 6 games, seemed pretty good so far.  Good mix of ships.   I been seeing Baltimores which seem pretty tough, i hit them but get hardly any damage for some reason. Was so bad i stopped wasting my shots on them but could have been there good luck and my bad luck.  No ships seem to be standing out yet.   Have fun

As a DD player, I intend to focus on DDs that have some AA available: Olan, Akizuki, LoYang, an maybe that strange Russian DD.

If the CV meta ls light then I'll include the Cossack (my personal favorite). It just doesn't do very well with CVs present.

I might try a couple old favorites in Benson and Amagi, since I'm re-grinding those lines anyway.

Anyone who has been around long enough will recall when T8 Ranked used to be known as "World of Bensons".

T8 match....      Vlad, a whole host of DDs..  Prince Eugen,   I also think Tallinn w, Radar upgrade mod could play personally?   Almost any T8 CV, except GZ?   Sleeper - Saipan...   very powerful against T8 ships and AA if flown well.

If you’re on the red team it’s best to bring a Monarch.

Akizuki, possibly Harekaze.

Nothing else holds any appeal for me.

If I even care enough to play.

Indomitable, saipan, orkan, Kidd, maybe asashio if the BB meta stays

Never bring Implacable hiuahsiuahsiuahsias. The worse ever.

 

Saipan is cool as it has t10 planes.

on CL: Bayard & Mainz. Pyort Bragation deserves some battles as well. I may go with Chapayev if radar turns to be imperative.

on DD: Cossack, pure fun...

So far I've been using my Odin and its been fantastic. Likely going to play some games with Cossack as well since its a delight to play when you aren't being heavily uptiered. haven't seen a ton of radar in the sprint either yet.

I'm a cruiser guy.  Of the T8 cruisers I have available in my port, it's looking so far like Hipper will be the go-to.  Lots of BBs out there, so far, and few CVs.  If I start seeing more CVs, might go with Cleveland, but so far, I'm feeling more need for Hipper's heavier guns than Cleveland's AA and radar.  Plus, Hipper has hydro that lasts forever (I use the hydro upgrade).

Glad to see at least some mention of Hipper. I have Tallinn, but not sure I feel comfortable enough with it in ranked yet. I do have Kagero, but I have a real hard time in DD's... some luck with USN DD's, but not in higher tiers. I don't think I can get a Vlad built out and ready for this ranked sprint. I think I'm best in BB's and am really enjoying the Izmail and Sinop (not as much). Yeah... I only have the those three T8's currently.

I do think I need to go back and study a bit on the Hipper as I've gotten used to French cruisers now and really haven't done great in the Hindy. Any Hipper vids/posts recommended here?
