It is indeed a fun ship, playing at the back and snipers is so boring 

what is sniping to massachusetts is close range to alabama.

It will take me some time to get used to the slow 16’” shells but I usually target 1 ship with secondary and focus mains on another, that being threat dependant.

It certainly is a ball playing in Coop matches. Fire initially at target and set it to secondaries and swing the guns to another target and repeat....simply a wreaking machine

Unfortunately, she takes a dedicated captain for a full secondary build.  That's my only turn off.

It’s hard for me to want to play anything else these days.  She’s the perfect ship.

Careful if everyone keeps playing the ship and saying it is fun and doing well in it WG will nerf it like they are with Alsace OR pull it for being OP as it is a premium and they don't nerf those so they say. I see a lot of parallels with MA and Alsace here.

Well Mass is a premium, so I feel pretty safe there.

But now that I have mine, I wouldn’t mind if they pulled it.  Lol

They get enough, bad ones, all on their own. Nothing I say will matter. LOL

And obviously I was being sarcastic and joking which I am sure you got.

Yes, the upcoming nerf to Alsace is a shame.

I agree with pretty much everything said about the Massachusetts above.  WG finally made a really fun ship and should do nothing to nerf her ever.  Lots of defects in the ship, very situational, but like the OP said, I wouldn't trade her for any other ship in the game.

but WG please give us the blue Measure 22 camo back :)

I'm really enjoying the Massachusetts. It's speed keeps me from over-extending. If I do overextend the secondaries are ready to help keep racking up damage and the quick cool-down on Repair Party keeps me around longer. It really is becoming my go to ship. Even with all that, I've had some really bad games, usually because I'm low tier and get focus-fired early. I finally hit 50% WR in her last night, and it took me 4 straight wins to do so. But, the big games do happen and they make it all worth it.

I’ve had nothing like that damage wise yet, I agree nerfs suck but that’s the WG merry go round they did in WoT they are doing it here(though so far it’s not as bad as tanks).

BTW I much prefer "Mass Destruction" (as in "weapon of...") over Mass Effect

Give me some of you tips for playing her. I have her but have struggled to find my groove in her. I think I am being too aggressive trying to get the secondaries engaged and wind up getting killed in the first third of the battle.

I stay around the cruisers and push just behind them, the secondaries are great but those main guns pack a huge punch at 15 km or less. I usually try to put an island to one side of me to help reduce incoming fire.

So a good example for me would be a friend was in his Bismarck and I was in the Massachusetts. We were the only two ships on a flank and around the corner comes 4 battleships and three cruisers. I wanted to turn out and kite but he insisted we stand our ground and defend the cap. We killed the cruisers and one of the battleships, the other three battleships turned out and retreated, all of them below 50% in health. I got focused on and tanked 2.5 million potential damage but I was dead and out of the game in the first half.  I know helped the team, I had 125k damage and three kills but I think I could have done better by kiting. I only have 8 battles in her but I hae a 75% win rate and a 1782 Personal Rating and average 87k damage but I feel I should be doing better. My PR rating in the Tirpitz and Bismarck are over 2200.

Too aggressive probably.  Something I'm still struggling with.

Your secondaries are awesome.  They will accumulate huge damage and kills for you later in the game really fast. . . but you don't need to rush it.

Keep your distance at 15km - 16km for a while.  Let the battle evolve.  See where people are going.   Then once you're comfortable, push into secondary range and drop the hammer on them.  You want to make sure the deck is stacked as much in your favor as possible before you get in too close, because you're not going to get out most likely.

Since the week I played that game I've been traveling, and now that I'm back it's been all downhill. In general I tend to overextend, which didn't seem to be too much of a problem then, but now the red team is making me pay for it. I see a lot of Worcesters and Des Moines, they seem to sniff me out early. Then it just rains fire and I sink early. When I try not to overextend, I end up with pitiful damage numbers. The main guns just don't have the reach. Besides my own gameplay problems, I did switch to Manual Secondary Fire Control (dropping CE) which probably isn't helping. I'll likely switch back.

BTW - Is this boat cursed with poor spawn locations? Most of the time I start games way out to the edge of the line-up, and I'm usually on the side that has 3 ships.
