To encourage players to enter a range that the ship’s biggest advantages can actually be used.

If you bought the Massachusetts to snipe, you should have bought an Alabama.

My Großer Kurfürst was my first tier 10 boat.  I LOVE secondary build Battleships; brawling and contesting the cap (once the DDs are dead/chased away) is AWESOME and the Massachusetts, in the 2 matches I have had in her, did not disappoint me.  I disappointed HER.  I can only hope that as I get the captain to 14 points and pick up manual secondaries that I will get to be even more dangerous.

She is a great scrapper.  I am glad I got her, and even though leveling her captain in the Texas/Arizona/Alabama/Missouri will hurt a bit, in time, she'll get kitted out with the right skipper for the job.

Well she's got Spotter Plane available for modified Range. 

If you're willing to sacrificing SBM2 for APRM1 you'll get +16%MB for - 15%SB range. 

You can also use JoaT and the consumable flag and PremCon to further decrease the CD of Spotter Plane. 

But tbh, I played around with APRM1 + Prem Spotter and anything within the buffed range of Spotter without APRM1 is inconsistent already. The stacking of both is simply racking up Red Target's tank potential. RNG is totally dependent for Damage when stacking Range Buffs.

I like Secondary Builds. Can't wait for a Commonwealth 19. Haida's my second favourite DD.. Would be first but Harekaze is always trying her best regardless of build.

I have it, and I love it.  It's my most favorite ship to play.  To me, it's almost like playing the North Carolina, except it turns like a US Standard, isn't quite as accurate, and comes with amazing secondaries.  The secondaries plus the fire damage they cause add about 30-40k damage per game.  AA is very strong, too, and your TDS is exceptional. 

For my Captain build, I went all-out on secondaries:  PT, AR, BFT, AFT, IFHE, MFCSA.  You do not need Expert Marksman for this ship. 

Honestly, although she is the least accurate American T8 battleship, I don't find it to be an issue.

The mass is one of the most fun ships WG has put in game in some time, and I enjoy playing up close like a cruiser, but with BB armor and health!

I just feel sorry for this thing in a Tier X match.  Granted, it's not the only Brawling Tier VIII BB that struggles in Tier X matches.

 

I'm staring down one of these things with my Montana and can only smile.

Like Bismarck and Tirpitz, you got to be patient.  That poor sigma and dispersion will cost you.  Of course, the flip side is when Mass gets to be top tier.  Like Bismarck and Tirpitz, you'll be blasting through those Tier VI-VII chumps and running them over.

Hahaha I love the gif, because it's so true.  In T10 matches, you definitely have to be patient.  But, when the opportunity arises and your secondaries start opening up on something like a Grober Kurfurst, it's a total damage farm due to its massive size.  If you go racing in thinking your secondaries are going to be an "I-Win" button (which I have regrettably done!!!), it's a quick game over.
