WG introduced a mini ranked for T5 ships (Ranked spirit): https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/g...ranked-sprint/

"The new format is designed more for newcomers, however all players can test their strength in the sprint."

In T5 has good selection of ship, however some ships is more powerfull than the rest:

1. Kamikaze / Fujin can be countered by fast gunoat dds, but torpedo and concealment is exceptional.

2. CVs without manual drop and without def AA to defend. Only Nicholas can mount def AA in her B hull in that tier. Texas and Kongo can have decent AA if skilled right, but Texas AA is vulnerable from HE and Kongo AA is 96 at max 6 km at full power. This can't delete a full strike alone.

3. Giulio Cesare... Feel PaytoWin the first sight.

Compare just concealment and mobility section the most competent T5 BB:

Giulio Cesare
Maximum Speed 27 knot
Turning Circle Radius 640 m.
Rudder Shift Time 13 sec.
Surface Detectability Range 13.68 km.
Air Detectability Range 9.42 km.

Maximum Speed 30 knot
Turning Circle Radius 770 m.
Rudder Shift Time 14.9 sec.
Surface Detectability Range 16.2 km.
Air Detectability Range 11.7 km

Maximum Speed 24 knot
Turning Circle Radius 620 m.
Rudder Shift Time 13.2 sec.
Surface Detectability Range 14.58 km.
Air Detectability Range 10.59 km.

Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya
Maximum Speed 23 knot
Turning Circle Radius 630 m.
Rudder Shift Time 12.6 sec.
Surface Detectability Range 13.68 km.
Air Detectability Range 9.78 km

Oktober and Gulio Concealment is better than Kirov and equal to Krasny Krym. In comparation with silver ships BBs and DDs premiums feels more powerfull in all aspect. Kamikaze / Fujin can be slaughtered by gunboat dds but Giulio Cesare can outperform rest of the 5 tier.

I wonder what ships will be most popular this mini event?
