I don't captain Wichita all that much so when Ranked Sprint was set for T8 ships I determined I'd go for it using only Wichita. I have been pleasantly surprised and quite pleased with her performance. I have other T8 ships that I like better and I consider myself a DD main but Wichita has been a port queen too long. Additionally, I decided to spec her captain much differently than I usually do with US CA. Until now I have never used Expert Loader and very infrequently used Radio Location. IMHO they are game changing skills in Ranked Sprint. I think the thing that made her work so well is her agility. It took a lot to sink her (900k avg potential damage) because she "dances" so well!

Such fun this round I'll have to pull another port queen out for the next one!

Summary, captain specs, upgrades, and consumable selection below should anyone be interested.

I’ll have to explore Wichita in the upcoming ranked season - it was the opening bundle for me in the current Armory event.  It was fun in a quick coop game with my Des Moines captain.  I think he has the same build you ran.

I ran mostly Tallinn to Rank 1 in the Sprint season.  Gotta like that 12 km stealth radar.

Don't take my word. But think about it. Most US cruisers need cover and work around islands. Typically not open water spammers. 

This is one of the best players in the game. He is Korean so no talking (english) but watch his cruiser play. It will change how you play.
