Soooo..... But when you look at cruisers, where the skill is useless... In order to get back to the builds I had before the rework, I'm required to have the last 2 points... but it takes 1.2 million exp to get the last 2 points. And now I'm seeing like this more and more. Who the heck okayed this "New and Improved" skill rework?
Nordlaender posted a topic in General Game DiscussionI am seriously thinking about ditching the Last Stand captain skill on my Lightening, which I reset recently to ask this very question. It seems a truism that everyone MUST choose Last Stand as their second captain skill on a DD, but whereas that may have once been true, I am not so sure now. After the introduction of the rapid fire HE spam storm cruisers and now the SAP cruisers, once spotted, it doesn't really matter if I can move a little inside my smoke screen or while kiting away -- like a snail. I am obliterated by the firestorm that keeps coming at me, so I have not used Last Stand to save my DD in a very long while. On the other hand, having Radio Location (along with Concealment Expert) at least lets me know where the nearest enemy ship is, and especially when they round a corner of an island (it will suddenly change to point backwards or something, I guess Radio does not go through islands, but radar, sound, etc. does.) right behind me or to my flank. I would like to have both Radio Location and CE on my destroyer Lightening, which has been nerfed down pretty bad during the last year with nearly every cruiser carrying radar now. Radio Location helps me to avoid them and keep my distance, while CE seems to help in the End Game and also when I am hiding from planes at the beginning. The best defense seems to be not to be caught out in the open at all to begin with. I would like other's opinions about this before I finish filling out my captain skills on Lightening. Do players really believe Last Stand is vital or is it less useful now at the upper tiers? Thanks to anyone who can give me some advice on this!
