Alsace Manual Secondaries?

Situation:

I have started my Alsace cap on the road to a secondary build. I have all the range upgrades so I am getting the 11.3 range, but do not have the manual fire control for a (-60% dispersion) cap perk yet. I have noticed that I still get a ton of hits and do a great deal of damage with the secondaries. It is also nice to have her shoot at two ships at once. More than once I have brawled against two BB's and sunk them both. So I am wondering....

Question:

1) Is the Alsace secondary base dispersion better than the Germans?

2) Is it worth it to add manual fire control if it is still hitting targets a bunch, especially multiple ships ?

Thoughts? (especially from Alsace drivers with a secondary build?

The increase in number of hits you will get with the manual secondary skill far outweighs the drawback of only being able to target one ship at a time.

Depends on what you want. I have Richelieu and I love her. I also love her because of her limits, so I have to make use of everything given to her. That being a decent amount of Secondaries along with Manual Secondaries.

%100 agree, especially when you click on a DD and watch it melt away in no time!

I have Alsace with Manual secondaries, IFHE for them, and AFT. No CE. Works well.

You need IFHE above anything else for a secondary build on Alsace; im not sure you have that? Those 100mm cant pen BB/CA superstructure without it. As for your question; yes. The Alsace in my opinion is the best t9 BB in the game (I have all of them), but you need to have a full secondary build to make it a beast. It will increase your damage per battle by ~50,000k easily every game. The Alsace is better that the Republic, in my opinion, and the Republic is a decent BB.

I had manual secondaries on this ship until i got the Republique. Best game I had in it was this week secondary wise, 212k damage total overall. Secondary damage 512 hits for about 23K, but 35k in fire damage to those ships. Another game I played Tuesday that had Zoup in it I had 315 secondary hits, but less damage. The ship shines alot against tier 7 ships and picking good targets for your secondaries. The first game I mentioned was a brawling match.
