Between changes to the composition of ships  (2 BB +/- 1CV), cyclone effects (range visibility changes) and some new vessels from which to choose, what thoughts on what will be preferred team builds?

Appears radar/sonar would be a no brainer when available, torp/aa DD's for heavy ship counters.

Hard to tell.

CV: the German one may be the best one, tho Hakuryu will still be a solid choice.

BB: Ohio, Shikishima and Kremlin may be the best, tho Montana will always be a solid pick, and maybe the British one could be interesting since HE spammers are non existent almost and they counter well bow in BB/ Soviter CA.

CA: Stalingrad, Petro, Moskva in this order, with Des Moines in 4th. You can take on CL maybe, but I guess that the core will be those CA.

DD: Halland and Sommers for different reason.

I feel like it’ll be very stale like last T10 season, only this time you add a Kremlin and swap a Haku for a Red Baron

Don't forget the FDR as a CV option.

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the bloody Red Baron of Germany

+1 for the above poetry,

To add on to the second post, Venezia is a solid boat for CB, depending on cyclone frequency.

Actually, it's a snippet from the lyrics of a song in the 1960's.

Ranked blows this season. My gosh. Can predict losses in about 3 minutes with no kills just looking at ship deployments. Played 6. Lost 4. Sniping Kurfs. Suicidal Hallands. Reversing Stalin's. Krems hitting angled ships for 55k 19km away.

Took out Nevsky. Bad. 

Took out Goliath. Hilariously bad. Got deleted in a single salvo 4 minutes into match. Still placed 3rd on a loss. See Kremlin complaint above.

Ohio did alright. Can't believe it doesn't punch harder but whatev's.

Saw some Minotaurs and Smolensk on top of charts.

Only had 1 match with carriers. I got torped by ze German planes for 4k. Lol. Not a problem.

Halland. Don't have to dodge CVs in queue, great torps, great guns, heal. Who the heck needs smoke anyway? :)

I  rarely use take smoke when given the option because just about everything has radar these days...

I'm not curtain I would play any DD with CV's plus Cyclones. Then you mix in a couple radars A DD might as well go into battle with their pants around their ankles just to be ready for it.

I would imagine that we could be at the point of saturation with CB's. From the outside it appears to be the same thing over and over. Basically the same clans reach their seemingly designated color, rinse and repeat. Argue about CV's and play the same 5 ships over and over.

Exactly. And it's long-range RU radar too.

Smoke is valuable for well-coordinated team-play, but hey, we're talking Ranked here :Smile_smile:
