I thought Seconddaries were automatic. My bb has sec range 10.1 a bb was at 7.3 the dang things were not firing until I put focus on them.  My capt has the manual fire but  the sec should auto even if i do not use the skill. It has happened a lot latlely. I depend on them to let me know something is too close.

The manual secondaries skill makes it so they only fire on the focused target. It's been like that since the introduction of the skill.

^^This.  Also, some ships have secondaries located in the aft section of the ship, so if you are bow tanking/kiting these guns won't have proper firing angles.-

Well that's your problem. Next time read the instructions of a skill before you equip it.

I misunderstood. So my auto sec dont work so I lose that just because I thought the skill was addition to auto so i will remove the skill.

Any truth to the rumor that WG just nerfed the secondaries by 30%?

If you squint, yes, for the foreseeable future no.

 

What WG did say is that, in their first public draft of the comprehensive captain skill rework, secondary armament boosting skills would be altered and expanded.  This would include, among other things, retooling the Manual Secondary Fire Control skill to change its boost from 15% tighter dispersion for T6 and below and 60% tighter dispersion for T7 + while removing automatic firing, to 35% tighter dispersion for the selected target at all tiers, without disabling automatic firing at the unboosted accuracy settings.  

 

So basically, someone skimmed the first draft of the captain skill rework or heard a snippet on YouTube from one of those incredibly error-riddled content creator overviews (even the relatively reliable CCs like Flambass made a few errors while covering it), and then started spreading rumors that you picked up on.
