OK How about Agir V Roon and how would each fare in a sprint battle?

Agir by a mile. Roon is a mid to long range HE spammer and struggle to push due to the poor turret layout.

Roon is suffering bad on rank sprint too..

They are dying in a single shot.

Well Roon is quite tanky for that tier, with her 27mm bow and stern and her extended belt and turtle back. The issue is that she cannot bow tank like Russian and American, nor island hug like American. And at tier 9, between Riga, Alaska and Agir, you got far better choice.

In ranked sprint, Agir is the better pick. Roon struggles to push and play the objective, which is imperivarive in the current ranked sprint environment.

In a straight matchup, though, a well-played Roon will melt Agir. Roon can bounce Agir’s AP and has significantly more HE DPM.

Gotta agree with the consensus. Personally I think Roon is one of the worst T9s out there. It's basically the wrong 3/4 of a Hindenburg. It isn't stealthy enough to sneak up on anyone and its turret layout is terrible giving it really lousy effective firepower. It's reasonably durable but the bad turret layout will make sure you can't benefit from it.

Regular Cruisers in general are doing very poorly right now in Ranked Sprint 13, and Roon herself is stinking real bad.

 

Super Cruisers not named Azuma, are the only things with a Cruiser Icon doing well.

Roon desperately needs a rebuild to an A-B-Z layout, moving the second turret forward.   

It's not the hull that's the real problem, is that it can't put out much firepower without negating many of the strengths of that hull.
