We all know Ranked Battles are an elaborate long con to sell premiums

 

The logical extension is to sell the Sims in time for ranked.

There are much better options for tin cans in ranked though. Not saying you shouldn't want to get Sims, just that she's not a matchwinning ship. She has - ... flaws.

Unless they buff her, there are much better options.

What do you think is the best carry ship for ranked? I'm leaning towards Nagato and the Polish DD of doom

I'm expecting to see a lot of the Polish DD and the Kiev.

Sims is the best cap ship for this season. She has one gun less than Mahan but the same firepower as Blys (double ROF), the better traverse, second lowest detection of all the tier 7 DDs, her short range torps are very competitive on a cap, and most importantly, she has tier 5 IJN DD maneuverability.

 

Sims for cap, Blys for DD hunting, Mahan for utility.

 

Kiev and Hatsu are going to force their players to work very, very hard.

Blys can also harass BBs big time from behind setting them ablaze.

this; as soon as i heard that the ranked will be at t7 i realized that it's to sell premiums - blysk, indy, sims

 

thankfully i already got blysk long ago so they can't fool me to buy anything

Pretty sure the 12 month Moratorium isn't over until July anyway

 

Then make a copy of it, tweak it a little, and give it the name of one of the other Sims-class DD's.  There were 12 DD's in her class.

What? She is the best Tier 7 DD in the game, with the Blyskawica a close second. I got to Rank 1 in Season 2 driving the Sims.

sims is likely the best t7 cap contester because she has benson's guns

Exactly, 4 second reload vs 3.3 second reload and the guns traverse twice as fast on the Sims.

 

Extra concealment and a 60m tighter turning circle don't hurt either.

And it has the side benefit that as a premium, someone could move a great captain from another ship into the Sims without having to pay doubloons for retraining.

Another way to look at it is that a lot of players don't have T8 ships, but would like to advance past Rank 10.

You, good sir, are a master of understatement. It's like saying the U.S. Government has racked up a "significant" amount of debt....

Sims is a baby Benson, we don't want this season dominated by a DD like last season.  Last season I got to 5 in Sims without CE, but couldn't get further with all the Bensons up there fighting to rank out.

 

Why would you want a Sims? It has horrible shell arcs, long range torps are slow and don't hit very hard,  and 7.3 concealement doesn't always get you close enough to other DDs to pummel them with your ROF.

flaws of sims it's weak torpedoes, with poor torpedoes and fast shooting guns with poor arcs sims is mostly good in the domination mode for cap contesting

ranked is played in the domination mode only, so... sims performs in ranked much better than in normal

 

statistically by winrate in the previous ranked season sims performed better than fubuki, mahan and hatsuharu and on par with tashkent

comparing to mahan it's much faster with much better shooting guns and much stealthier

Speaking as someone who bought the three pack, I feel the exclusivity expired in April (whenever the exact anniversary of "pay to CBT" was).

 

I like the ship and want other people to enjoy it too. I'm also not jealously attached to my imperator or gremy, tho I suppose I understand why WG doesn't want to sell them again. Shame they didn't plan those two out properly.
