Somebody Gave Me a Massachusetts!

I'll not say who unless they want to come by and tell you but thanks again for the amazing gift of a Massachusetts. I'd always hoped that one might show up someday in a supercontainer but knew the odds were akin to winning the lottery. My first game, with a zero point commander in a tier X match, went wonderfully. The Massachusetts really lives up to its reputation and my experience in seeing them in games. As you can see by my three caps and 98 secondary hits, I took full advantage of its brawling capability. I couldn't have done it without an excellent team though, so hat's off to them too.

Don't take this wrong , I swear I'm  not being snarky.   I was impressed with this post until I saw that you have been here for years.    I would expect you to do well in a T10 Match in a T6 ship. 

How would someone gift a ship?  I would love to give some away instead of just deleting them.

First of all, Massachusetts is a T8 ship, not a T6.  And that was being snarky.  You could've just been happy for the guy.  Not everyone is a unicum based on years of experience.

As for gifting a ship, you can only do it by buying it directly for someone else in the Premium Shop.  You can't give away ships you have in port.

The dude was probably quite happy with this, and then you just come and say that? I understand jealousy exists but still. Chill out man.

You buy the ship for someone as a gift . I have given a few gift ship out myself. I once give a Atlanta to anyone on enemy team who kill a crybaby who was on my team once.

So, uh do we fill some forms, how does it work exactly? :Smile_teethhappy:

Regardless may your new ship carry you to victories and may whoever gifted it get some good karma in return.

One thing I can tell you for certain is that Massachusetts does NOT have hydro... so act accordingly.  :Smile-_tongue:

I'm wondering if Vigilance might be a good commander skill for it? I went for fast rudder shift in order to dodge torpedoes better too.

I have my Mass specced 100% for secondaries and heal.

Manual secondary, IFHE, AFT SI and AR.  Some people give up SI for BFT.  There is evidence that supports both options.

All modules can that be for secondaries are installed.

LOL.

You practically ensured that he can't come out and tell us, without looking like a douché.

"Hey everyone, this guy won't tell you, but I was the one who got the gift. How great am I? 'Very' is your answer."

Congrats on your ship man. How DO you give things to other players in this game anyway?

You took a hit out on a green player? That's hilarious! How fast did he get deleted?

I think when you buy something, you have the option to give it to someone instead of dropping it in to your own port.

I really didn't know. In fact, I had to do a search in order to find out how to even accept the gift (you log on to the Premium Shop page and there will be a notification saying "My Gifts" there).

I think Mass has what is described as "excellent" torpedo protection so I'd probably lean on that in combination with some intuition developed through game experience to manage the torpedo threat.

Was a bit ago, maybe a year, I remember someone ask him to scout ( he was DD ) then he launch into this full cuss infest tirade then he try to sail to hide behind a island. name begin with Lt...

Anyway, very foul mouth and start to say some very nasty thing and spam chat -- so I say in general chat to anyone who kill this DD they get an Atlanta and I say what cap he was by ( but not exact position ) 

Entire red team go for that cap lol !!!!!

I do not think he live very long after, of course he start to say rude things to me for this I just mute him and wait for the expected to happen. Which happen very soon after.

1) I'm happy for you, I'm glad someone was generous that way!

2) Good game for sure!

3) If you think 98 secondary hits is "full advantage" all I can say is wait til you actually DO take full advantage of it. I've had matches with over 400 secondary hits. ;)

Q: Do you have a 19 pt captain in her? Running manual secondaries? Some folks like IFHE, I don't put the points there, but I'm sure that means even more secondary damage.

Man, I should have done this the other day. Had a random where one of my team members just started swearing and using super racist language against four or five of our teammates. He also griefed the whole mission, got mad about someone else making a mistake, and then proceeded to throw the match entirely.

Sounds like something someone should send in if they have the replay. I think his punishment would be a bit more than just being sunk.
