With the current crop of spuds bobbing on the salty sea I doubt we will notice a few more floating their way to the top.

You realize you still have to earn the xp you use to free xp to Tier 10 and you have to have at least 1 19 point commander already to have a 19 point commander, and most players at tier 10 are trash anyways, so I don't see an issue.

We can debate commander skills but I really am OPPOSED to this change. 15+pt captains are special and they can only be earned through the iron price.


 

SAY NO TO GOLD PRICE COMMANDERS!

I don't care if someone wants to spend money to race to tier 10.  Top tier game play is just as bad at low tier game play.

I has become very clear that the Golden Days of WoWs and gaming in general is over.

 

Anything difficult - gone

Anything not purchasable - gone

 

 

Any sense of accomplishment - GONE

 

 

Might as well jsut charge me 500$ wargaming and give me all ships with full modules and max point captains in them all. At this point why not?

They're already at T8-10; if I see another battle line putz around behind islands while half their team dies again, it'll be another day of playing WOWS.

It will make no noticeable difference to the level of play at high tiers. Potatoes will still play like potatoes.

It was only a matter of time.

Just like Missouri you have to put in the work to be able to have access to the feature, so... If anything I think it was a well thought out feature by WG. I'm sitting on something like 10million unconverted XP and there is a strong likelihood that I will be dumping cash into the game for it.

In fairness, anyone who can free xp their way to a tier 10 ship and also a fully max skill captain most likely has played quite a number of games already. Got to have the spare exp laying around to actually convert in the first place. It won't be like with premium ships, where one can buy a Derpitz with absolutely zero experience.

Because a potato will still be a potato.

 

Doesn't matter what modules or captain skill someone has, bad players will still be bad, good players will still be good.

It seems fine by me. Making the skills more accessible allows for them to be more unique without being an/ as much as an imbalance. If done right, it won't eliminate player skill from the equation. After all, you can give me the same equipment as a marine, but I'd still get my rear handed to me by the marine.

How many DD drivers busted their butts to get 15 point captains for Concealment Expert only to see that now it only takes 10 points?  It used to take 179,000 commander XP to get CE. Now it takes only 54,000 (10 points).  But wait!  You can buy those 54,000 skill points instead of earning them. 

 

For me, a nicely spec'd USN DD needed:

1 BFT

2 Last Stand

3 Vigilance (or Superintendent if you're too cheap to get Premium consumables)

4 Demo Expert (or Survivability Expert for Tier 7/8 and above, especially for Ranked)

5 Concealment Expert 

 

That's 15 points and 179,000 commander XP. Now you will be able to get the same skill set for 108,000. 

This is the biggest pile of male bovine excrement WG has fed me yet. :(

1.4 mil or thereabouts to get a 19 pointer. What's that, $200 something? And you still actually have to earn 1.4mil XP to convert in the first place.

The number of people I see with SE BB captains indicates that the time is long gone.

 

I always point and laugh at those guys. Then promptly Shrek them.

As someone that plays every nation and all ship types, I'd rather pay once to get another high skill captain than keep paying to respec skill points to use the one I have in multiple ships.
