Hi Everyone, 

 

Reading the update for 2017. I found the gif on the new commander skills looked oddly familiar. 

 

Does this somewhat confirm the leaked skill revamp?

Seems like it.

 

Comparing the icons from the leaked information and this, seems to be exact. All what remains is a confirmation of the attributes.

I remember hearing the devs didn't think some of them were balanced... I'm pretty sure Keen Awareness (I think that was the name) was one of them, so I imagine some things have been changed since the last leak

Yes I heard this as well. We can see that KI is there in some form. The question as you stated is how and what does it do now.

Hmmm. Looks like a nice tree. I will be quite happy with the captains I have built in my mind if there are aren't radical changes before release.

They said in the latest Q&A that some of the skills were lacking in balance and were in the process of being reworked. I'm fairly sure HEAP and Keen Intuition will have fallen under that category

Definitely cant wait to see the new captain skills. Also notice there is no tier 5 skill, so no massive grind to get your last.

Now you can finally run DE, AFT and CE together.

I think I read something about changing the amount of commander XP required per point as well.

I don't see how they can make KI useful and not OPAF.

I think someone on the EU forum suggested something like how it could increase minimum detection range, much like target acquisition mod and WG dev agreed with it.

Although, we can't be for certain how WG decided to make it not OPAF.

 


DD captains should take note of how BFT is now a T3 skill.

 

Most likely, DD captains will now take skills as such...

1pt Smoke God (SG)

2pt LS

3pt SI

4pt CE

Total 10pts

 

Followed up by skills like...

2pt TAE / EM

3pt DE / BFT

4pt AFT / HEAP / SE

Total 9pts

 

Which means lots of tailoring for player style and ship, and no longer cookie cutter for everything.

 

And, depending on what KI does, there can be more wrenches to throw into the cookie cutter.

I think this time I will wait and just run a couple ships and play with them to see how they do, last time they had a reset, I did all my ships and then latter on had to pay a bunch to change them out again, got way more ships now 146, think I will do this slowly this time

I'll just be happy when they settle on something finally. It is a little tiring to have to be in a constant state of Flux within the game.

 

I can only hope that Keen Intuition has changed, what a nonsense skill.

Great so two of the most useful T1 skills get moved up the tree for little to no additional benefit, wonderful, why was that necessary.

I am giddy with excitement. Hopefully this will allow me change around my 18 point Gearing captain to something more amazing.

BFT and AFT actually swapped places which is going to make some builds a little awkward.

It will be 19pts when the change comes, that's for sure.

HEAP is going to be so broken if its really a +25% pen increase. 
 

 

How, even that yamato will only pull 95mm of pen. DD's will max at 27mm for the 130mm's, and CL's will be 31 and CA's, 43. None of thats especially OP. If anything it's a really crappy skill.
