You will not get much sympathy here....  What have you done for your upgrades?  Mass is easily one of the best T8 BBs.

HMMMM

Would be very interested in your build.  

If you managed to get within 6KM of MY MASS you would most likely be bashed to death by her Seconds. 

Pushing through 5KM of them to GET to 6km of me would be , let's say.. TAXING.

That said..RNG is RNG  , with her reload you should have had an easy follow up shot.

Not me mention those Seconds would be working the entire time.

Mass.needs a 21 point commander to shine.  Fortunately wargaming has a plan for that.

Troll dispersion will strike every BB now and then. In regards to Massachusett’s sub-par sigma when compared to other US BBs, what did you expect? She has to give up something for the secondaries, quick turret traverse, great AA, and quick-recharging heal.

Personally, I’ve never really had issues with her main guns. They’re accurate enough, and the super-heavy 406mm AP is as effective as always.

Dont aim waterline on a German BB at that range. Aim at the deck-belt gap. That way almost all your shells will be hits, anything that misses the gap will hit the superstructure or the hull. One or two will spout off in weird directions.

Mass is the strongest T8 BB in the game.  It took me a few battles to figure the mass out.  Once you understand how she plays strengths and weaknesses, and you have the correct captain,  no other T8 bb can touch her.  She heals to fast and the secondary's will eventually melt anything.   Her main guns can troll from time to time but over all they are good.

I've seen my Mass spew forth rounds like spaghetti noodles out the nose of a six year old, like whoa, where those going?! I've also found her accuracy somewhat, uhm, lacking. 

@Taichunger has it right I do believe. Mass is more of a shot gun than a rifle, I do believe. 

Once we go full on 21 Skill Points salute mode, I plan to set one of my commanders up for the Mass.

Mass is the best tier 8 BB, change my mind!

Mass guns can be wonky, but they tend to deliver at such short distances.

Got a replay? Maybe your aim was a bit off. When you're really close don't aim exactly at the waterline, aim a tad bit higher. I honestly sometimes just go for full pens instead of citadels, the damage is more assured.

Has to be something with you...

I have no problem with Massachusetts guns .

AP waterline shots on Pommern probably didn't penetrate due to turtleback.

I find them pretty swell to be honest. I get better hits with the Massachussetts guns than any other USN BB that I have played, even at 6 or 7km against German BBs.
