Theorycraft: TX 1v1 Ranked...what would you choose?

So we had a T8 1v1 ranked, and despite worries that CVs would rule, it was the T8 BBs that seemed to be the kings of the seas.  Tirpitz and Mass seemed extremely strong against basically anything, while the CVs seemed to struggle.

If this same format was applied to a Tier 10 Ranked Sprint, with the same restrictions (no type matching, smaller maps, etc)...what do you think the best T10 would be to get the highest success rate?

I would think something like Hindenberg would be good.  Republique maybe with its fast firing guns.  GK and Ohio to let the secondaries handle the baby boats.

What are your thoughts?

CV.  T10 CV power level is higher than T8 by far.

The nature of 1v1 was that you had to get into the cap and contest it or you would lose on points in short order. T10 CV can't slug it out on the surface.

Richtofen, full secondary spec.

FDG hull armor, with accurate fast firing secondaries with 32mm pen, possible stealth firing, or very close to it...plus airplanes to add to that.

Minotaur could be decent. It could take on DD, defend against CV and stealth torp BBs. The only thing it would struggle with is some cruisers.

Full secondary spec Midway or Red Baron might make you eat your words.

If there's a cap, would a Stalin be good? RDR, Power.

No Cap, Halland handsdown.

I only played one CV in Bismarck/Tirpitz. Never got to fire a shot at it. Too much island cover for it to use. 

Talked to guy afterwards, he was 17-0 at that point, finished with 1 loss. 

 

Conquerer would be extremely annoying to deal with 1v1.

Kleber.  Crazy speed, good torp firing angles, crazy fast torps, good guns (at least while the reload boost is up).

There are ways for good players to handle it, but my T8 1v1 ranked experience showed me that maybe 5% of players are good enough to figure out how to handle a 50 knot DD charging them.

I played a lot of Atago and wrecked every CV or DD (lost 1 DD match to a Fantisque, very good player in it)  I played against, and did very well against most BBs. (lost maybe 2-3 matches)  Only time I lost to a CV was the first time I played one in the Trip...and I did get some shots off.

Charging Shim... with TA F3s.. good night.  If you don't kill them.   I wouldn't bother with this format.

At T10 I am taking the Repub.  You can hang with any BB, waste any CA, and do very well against any DD.  CV might worry me a bit, but Repub has speed to find that CV.

Marceau, it has enough DPM to outmatch any DD it comes across, enough torps to Yolo any CA and BB, and decent AA for CVs. 

Or maybe that new German CV, although it depends on how good it's secondaries are.

I expect French DDs would be strong. The Tier VIII Ranked Sprint 1 v 1 was one of my best seasons, I think I had a 68% win rate in Le Fantasque (overall rate dragged down a bit by derping around in a few other ships). When facing a CV, just hit W and then as soon as you are spotted, hit speed boost and YOLO the carrier. Worked every time but once for me against battleships as well. Only a few cruisers were any trouble, and it was not a cruiser meta. Destroyers came down to who was the better skipper.
