_Marines posted a topic in BattleshipsMusashi is characterised by her very powerful main guns, usually dealing ~90% of the total damage versus secondary-heavy battleships like Bismarck and Massachusetts's ~65%. Therefore, while I do favour ASM1 (-7% main gun dispersion) over SBM1 (+20% secondary range, -20% secondary dispersion) and MBM3 (-12% main gun reload) over SBM3 (-20 secondary reload), I find there are some captain skills that can be allocated to enhance secondaries. These secondaries, at 9.1 km range with AFT and without SBM1, don't see target often when played in that right style: pushing with teammates without high-risk brawling. However, I find the secondaries working pretty hard in lots of end-games, especially when you consider that some of them are knocked out already. Traditional Musashi captain skills: I find in the above build, both Fire Prevention (limits max number of fires on superstructure from 2 to 1, and reduce 10 fires for every 100 potential fires) and Concealment Expert (reduces detectability range by sea from 15.7 km [after CSM1] to 13.5 km) not imperative. From my experience, they haven't made any significant differences. Therefore, I'm thinking either: (maintaining very low detectability range, which is useful in situations) Or: (increasing the 6x 5" guns per side's 8% fire chance to 10%. reload is quite long: 7.5 seconds) Any suggestions from the secondary-build masters of this ship?

While ships like Musashi could be more competitive with a survival build individually, a less competitive secondary build can be more competitive in the right hands with your team.
_Marines posted a topic in General Game DiscussionNowadays almost every Bismarck I see in random matches are secondary build and they push aggressively. Meanwhile only some Massachusetts's are secondary build, probably because some players are new and haven't realized how much fun there is once you go secondary. According to some articles I have read (quoted below), Massachusetts has more powerful and accurate secondaries than German T8s, and I do buy into the theory that Mamie is currently the strongest T8 for a secondary build. What's your take? Vote, discuss!
_Marines posted a topic in General Game DiscussionIt does look like she has some potent secondaries. 12x 102mm guns each side, but base range is only 3.5km though.
