You can use it, but it just don't work the same way it used to be... 

I will advice to read the 0.8.0. patch notes and the captain skill description (and watch some CC video) before starting such threads.

I am assuming you are talking about the AA then, so I'll just leave it here because my Schanhorst's secondaries worked just fine this morning... :cap_old:

Other than that, also check this out (from the wiki):

" This doesn't mean manual aim; the guns still aim automatically. It requires the player to manually select a target by holding down Ctrl and left-clicking on it.
With this skill, the secondaries will not fire at all without manual target selection. "

? You mean ?manual secondaries or manual AA?

Both are covered lad.. Manual secondaries have not been changed at all in this patch. They work or do not work exactly the same than they did before. Only the AA has been changed, so if AA indeed is the problem, check the video. IF your problem actually is the secondaries, please check the quote from wiki (red text in my post).:cap_hmm:

 

If the issue is something else, we gonna need more explanation(s) on the problem from you to better understand what is wrong and be able to say anything more.:Smile_Default:

Well im not talking about AA. Secondarys.  In the captain skills i cant pick manual control of the secondarys (yes i can in my Schanhorst but not my tier 8 premium Prinz Eugen that i bought for alomost 400 nok). 

 

Secondarys fires like before, but NOT with captain skill : Manual fire control :

Because you dont have it? You changed skills, that cap does not have the secondary manual control...

 

Are you ok?

Ahh, now I understand. Yes, they changed it a while back so any skills, which are not useful / usable in your current ship cannot be selected anymore. That is an old change tho, last year vintage. Nothing much we can do about it I guess. Sorry about that. Maybe just choose Demotion Expert and / or something else instead?:cap_hmm:

TBH - I never tried it on a Cruiser myself, perhaps you can still take it, even if it recommends not to? Give it a try @Babysote :cap_tea:

Ummmmm... guys? You can select it, though manual secondaries on a cruiser is highly questionable. That icon is just saying that it's not recommended. For example I use IFHE on Kurfurst

If the ship is under T7 class, then that I think explains why you can't use Manual Secondary skill on it. I think only ships from T7 onwards are allowed to use that skill.

WG will not teach you how to read or comprehend text, not too sure you want to go to them...

The lack of basic knowledge & understanding game mechanics in this thread... 

 

@OP : please hover your mouse over the manual secondary icon. You will see what it says. 

And as for what @MRGTBsaid.. You can select the skill on any ship you want, any tier, any class, any nation. Heck, feel free to go Kiev with manual secondaries...

What are they teaching you at school, these days???:Smile_child:??? WG implemented those signs on the captain skill to prevent you from doing "questionable" decisions... I'm also a part of the millennial generation, but I understood the importance of READING

@Freyr_90 @OTECa1We may have overlooked something very basic here lads...  @Babysote, you may have to reset your Captain skills all-together  before you will be able to select this skill. Just noticed that although you have a 19 point captain, you do not have any free skill points left ATM for taking on additional skills... :cap_hmm:

@RAHJAILARII did see that though I assumed that something that basic can't possibly be overlooked. Perhaps I've raised the bar too high..

OP talks about Prinz Eugen. So, did you not read before posting or don't you just have a lack of knowledge which ship is on which tier? Either way should discourage you from posting suggestions.

You can choose this skill and it will work.

The "forbidden" sign is a bit harsh as it actually displays recommendations rather than restrictions.

I think if the density denseness went any higher this thread would develop its own event horizon...
