Shimakaze: 14 | Noone denies pushes and caps like a Shima. Also the Shima is by far the least prone to eat massive pen damage. And thus while ships like Gearing and Z-52 seem better cap contesters in reality it all depends on your teammates and who has the best radar and gets the least pen damage. Finally the Shima is a great danger with 20 hitpoints left while the gunbboat DDs are loosing a good bit of their teeth along with their hitpoints.
Khabarovsk: 10 | while the Khabba is serious fun, it basically burns BBs at range while speed tanking. The chances to actually jump and kill other DDs are few and far between now that you have to choose between concealment and rudder shift module. And thats not good enough - I would rather have a Zao on my team for this.

From the perspective of competitive play.

Yamato: 22
Montana: 20
Großer Kurfürst :  25
Zao:  19
Des Moines: 23
Hindenburg: 28 +1 = 29 : Been practicing this with the clanu. It's fucking lol in scrims and pubs.
Moskva: 17
Minotaur: 20 - 3 = 17: What does a squishy ship with a tiny smoke do in comp? It dies screaming, that's what. 
Shimakaze: 14
Khabarovsk: 7 
Hakuryu: 18 

 

BTW, the Gearing is pretty much the only viable T10 CW DD so I'm sad it's gone from this list.

This is basically for random and for random I'd rather take a Fletcher into any tier X match than a Gearing.

I could see it doing pretty well in T10 comps because of it's utility, but in randoms that utility doesn't reach it's full potential.

Yamato: 22
Montana: 20
Großer Kurfürst :  25
Zao:  19
Des Moines: 23
Hindenburg: 29 +1 = 30 : 61% wr in this over 81 matches, most solo - it can do whatever needs to be done in the moment - pure flexibility.
Moskva: 17
Minotaur: 17 - 3 = 14: Even if you are a great player, one broadside from a cruiser can end your day - it's a victim waiting to happen.
Shimakaze: 14
Khabarovsk: 7

I am an average player, and I think it reflects on my performance in the two cruisers above.  One ship allows you to play many roles at different times in the battle, allowing you to have an effect from start to finish - The Hindenburg.  The other allows you to ambush any ship mercilessly, or reduce the health of distracted ships handily - but, need to go 1 v 1 with a Zao, Hindy or Des Moine to close out a match?  Nope Minotaur can't do that.  Coffee is for CLOSERS ....

Yes, I basically just copied Onboard's choices, but they are things I have been seeing this past week clearly with a few guys in our clan getting Hindy's and going in 2 or 3 man divs of them.  They are the definition of carry.

Yamato: 22
Montana: 20 
Großer Kurfürst :  25 + 1 = 26 I love this and the Montana. However, this feels more like a true BB while the Montana feels more like a Battle Cruiser. Secondaries and Hydro help for pushing caps, avoiding torps, and killing smoked DD's
Zao:  19
Des Moines: 23
Hindenburg: 30 
Moskva: 17
Minotaur: 14 - 3 = 11 Echoing what other people are saying. It's a fun ship to play, and I think in pub matches a good player can leverage it's high skill ceiling to carry battles. However, like Biggie said when it comes to a 1v1 against a similarly skilled player it's going to lose.

I'm thinking it's not to late to add the Conqueror to the list. We could give it 20 points just like the others started with, which is the same as what the Montana currently has. Any thoughts?

That's probably fine.

I know I don't have any tier 10s, but from observation as a tier 8 stuck in tier 10 matches:

Yamato: 22
Montana: 20 
Großer Kurfürst :  26
Zao:  19
Des Moines: 23 + 1 = 24 A ship that does literally everything, except torpedo and smoke. Strong USN AP, decent HE, obscenely fast reload for 8" rifles, fills a fleet AA escort role, an anti-DD role with radar, and can do some tanking with the repair party.
Hindenburg: 30 
Moskva: 17
Minotaur: 11
Shimakaze: 14 - 3 = 11 Seems to be a rather selfish ship, and although she does a good job of pushing people out of smoke, that's almost all she does. Doesn't have the ability to contest caps if any other DDs get agressive, and noob trap 21km torps are lass than ideal for team play.

Großer Kurfürst :  26
Conqueror: 20 + 1 = 21 Added it to the list and wanted to be the first to give it an up vote. No actual experience with the ship so my vote may not mean anything. However, it is a BB and I'm down voting a CA.
Zao:  19
Des Moines: 24 
Hindenburg: 30 
Moskva: 17 - 3 = 14 It's detection range means it speeds the first part of the match shooting near max range, or it get's focused.
Minotaur: 11
Shimakaze: 11

Conqueror: 18
Zao:  19 -3 = 16 The Zao had two things going for it, invisi-firing (if that was your thing), and HE spamming. Invisi firing got nerfed, and there are newer better fire starters.
Des Moines: 24 +1 = 25 The DPM is insane on this, Then add in radar, good AA, and concealment.
