"Commander Skills Update"

commander skills update - More is less (the upcoming Commander Skills Update 19 -> 21 points - most current "reference" builds will simply cost more in new system for same functionality and will deplete great deal of resources and cause months / years of unnecessary grind)!

Reasons for the Changes

For many ships, there was often only one skill build that worked effectively. By adding new skills and changing the old ones, we want players to have a choice between several different effective builds to accommodate different playstyles.

Skills for all ship types were previously presented in the same skill tree. Because of this, some of them were ineffective for particular ships, or had different effects on different ship types. The new format allows us to create more specialized skills for each ship type and provides space for future development.

The above "explanation" is… well… :-(((

IMHO this is the worst "update" that WG has done thus far… I lived through all other changes (including the infamous CV change) but this is really something never seen before… I really really have hard time understanding why this was introduced at all in the first place.. nobody (not community not testers) never ever wanted this… 🙁

"Update of commander skills: questions and answers"

https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/107

How much XP is needed to level up a commander from 19 to 21 skill points?

It will require 1,200,000 XP. Yes, it is a new stage of growth for commanders in our game: they get more simultaneous active skills, but it requires effort to unlock them all. This is the basis of our game – progression.

🙁

The cost for upcoming new 20 & 21 point is staggering 1.200.000 Captain XP points.

There is simply no reason for this… absolutely none whatsoever…

The true cost (if we ever wanted to go to 20 & 21 in first place) would be more reasonable around 700.000:

Lets look at 12-point current DD base (lets say some sort of "basic reference") build:

z6hPB6S - More is less (the upcoming Commander Skills Update 19 -> 21 points - most current "reference" builds will simply cost more in new system for same functionality and will deplete great deal of resources and cause months / years of unnecessary grind)!

Now this same set will cost 15 points in upcoming update !!!

Maintenance Specialist (1) + Propulsive (2) + Argus-Eyed (2) + Enduring (3) + Adrenaline Rush (3) + Concealment Expert (4) = 15

How is this "improvement" of any sort? 🙁

Lets look at 19-point current DD generic "gunboat" (lets say some sort of "basic reference") build:

kooM5Cy - More is less (the upcoming Commander Skills Update 19 -> 21 points - most current "reference" builds will simply cost more in new system for same functionality and will deplete great deal of resources and cause months / years of unnecessary grind)!

Now this same set will cost 21 points in upcoming update and with less effect because there is only 5% improvement in reload now !!!

Maintenance Specialist (1) + Propulsive (2) + Argus-Eyed (2) + Enduring (3) + Adrenaline Rush (3) + Provident (3) Main Battery and AA Specialist (3) + Concealment Expert (4) = 21

How is this "improvement" of any sort? 🙁

"Commander Skills Update"

https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/general-news/commander-skills-update/

Commanders with less than 21 skill points will additionally bring you Elite XP in the amount of 5% of the Commander XP gained per battle. For Commanders with 21 skill points, any XP earned is converted into Elite XP; the additional 5% is not credited.

The 5% is simply meaningless… it is insignificant similar to "Free XP" 5% without usage of any special flags…

Lets suppose (and that is very very very generous) that player has 5.000 Commander XP after every battle (the most realistic number for 99% of players would be 2.000 – but for the sake of argument lets stay with 5.000).

5% of 5000 Captain XP = 250 Captain XP

From 19 -> 21 = 1.200.000 Captain XP

1.200.000 / 250 = 4.800 battles

So… player would need staggering 4.800 battles in order to upgrade just one single Captain from 19 -> 21… simply unbelievable… 🙁

Elite Commander XP

Elite XP can be used to level up Commanders, accelerate Commander retraining for other ships, and redistribute skill points, and can also be converted into Free XP by using Doubloons.

When dismissing a Commander, you can convert some of their Commander XP into Elite XP:Up to 25% of the Commander XP, at the cost of 10 Credits for 1 XP.Up to 100% of the Commander XP, at the cost of 1 Doubloon for 110 XP.

This is… well… :-(((

Lets suppose that you have unneeded (yes I know it is stupid – but lets imagine anyway) 19-point captain and you want to convert him to "Elite Captain XP" in order to boost some other captains that you have…

Current 19-point Captain = 1.708.000 Captain XP

1.708.000 x 10 = 17.080.000 Credits for recovering just 427.000 Captain XP (25%)

1.708.000 / 110 = 15.527 Doubloons for recovering whole 1.708.000 Captain XP

The numbers speak for themselves… it is simply unbelievable and incomprehensible… 🙁

Discussion

So… please someone convince me that WG thought this through before forcing us to adopt this "upgrade"… I have no words left… :-(((
