BFT or SI on Mass

Since the Mass has that quick repair party cooldown is it worth switching
BFT for SI?  If I lose BFT that really nerfs my AA and makes the secondaries a little slower.

Go for the Manly build and get BFT to buff the secondaries.

In my opinion? Both. But, I would chose SI first. That quick cooldown makes the extra heal so good, and while faster secondaries are nice, a ship that lives longer without BFT will still put more shells in the air than a ship with BFT that dies sooner.

Superintendent is critical with the lightning fast heal recharge. If you use premium heal, you can spend six odd minutes basically invulnerable to HE spam.

I’ve started with BFT but wish I had Superintendent. It’s easy to burn through those heals.

My opinion: If you play the ship to its advantages, you won’t have enough healable health to use the extra one from SI IF you use both premium heal and the +20% healed flag. I tried SI for one game and changed it up. I just didn’t have enough health to heal or didn’t use the extra because the game was close to over. To me it’s the same problem with British CL heals. You can heal so much so when you suffer pens, that 2/3 damage starts to add up quickly.

Take BFT and see how many shells you can get to rain down.

I'm still working on answering that question.  I did find that I used all 5 heals quite a bit so initially it seemed worth it.  To @Belyy_Klyk's point though. . . thinking back on it, usually one of those heals wasn't for very much damage.  So was it really worth it versus having the benefits of BFT?  That's what I'm testing right now.

If you need something right now, I'd say go with BFT.  Especially now that Massachsetts is starting to get a rep and CV's might be gunning for her more.

I sure hope CVs gun for her, if you’re secondary built you are also an AA monster.

It's a USN AA cruiser captain training BB. So do whatever you'd do to train a AA cruiser captain, and stick it in Mass. Training a specific captain for a premium ship is kinda dumb dumb.

BFT doesn't provide enough additional benefit for me to take it over SI.  I find myself using the full rack of heals on a fairly consistent basis on my BBs in general, so doesn't matter if my secondaries are firing slightly faster if I don't have the staying power I need to keep putting out damage.  The secondaries provide pretty solid additional damage, but at the end of the day they're just a supplement to my main guns, they're not the primary damage.

This is a thread for the Massachusetts, not for the Maass
