The change makes sense. AP on secondaries was never really useful.

Considering they really couldn't pen much, it was only a matter of time.

Good change, but the problem with secondaries lie more with limited range at Tiers 7-
Also with the manual secondaries not firing unless target is clicked and lack of accuracy increase at tiers 7- as well.

I welcome the change, but would've loved addressing say, the range problem first.
Still, good change.

No excuse not to buff 5”/38 Secondaries rate of fire across to board now.

Terrible change for Nelson. Without 1/4 penetration most of these secondaries will be useless anyway. 

You don't run IFHE on your Nelson?!     :fish_viking:

They were already useless, at least they may start a fire or do damage to an angled Destroyer now.

Fantastic changes as has been proposed by so many forum posts. I cannot wait to see the improvement on the KA. Further, this will really help make the 155 mm useful on the Musashi and Yamato.

Can the USN 5" 38s finally get some love? The fact that their RoF is half of what it should be is insulting... It doesn't have to be Massachusetts fast, but just faster than it currently is.

 

Still, happy to see this change come. AP on secondaries was extremely situational.

I also wonder now if the 155 mm on the Musashi and Yamato will become part of the AA battery?

155mm was single purpose and unable to elevate to AA heights. Same with Mogami that uses the 155mm's.
