19-Pt BB captain is a waste...

For example, an AA focused Montana captain has BFT and AFT. When going to a battle, there is no CV.

 

For another example, a Secondary focused GKurfust captain has AFT BFT & manual secondary. When going to a battle, if he is aggressive, he will die quickly. If he plays normally (angle, snipe), shoot a cruiser from 12km, then he plays well but secondary hardly makes an impact.

It's better to have those skills and not need them, than to need those skills but not have them.

You're absolutely right. 19 point BB captains need more points. We need 38 point BB Captains! We need double the points of any other class! We need to be able to take every offensive and defensive skill needed to extend our longevity! And to commemorate it, our captains hairs turn white and grow even older in looks! :cap_old:

 You better be trolling because with 9.3k battles I can't believe my eyes.

or use secondary build and not play like a scrub ?

u know stay alive until mid game and then u can push with secondary guns blazing and take advantage of the skills.

 

going full AA is a waste lots of time but a trade off if your scared of CVs, same with def fire on cruisers instead of hydro....  hydro is more useful 75% of the time. but it sure is nice to have that def AA when you need it.

I thought the main purpose of a 19 point commander was to grind Elite Commander XP.  And, I get to sometimes use stuff I normally wouldn't, like JOAT.  Just got my fourth.

  No kidding!  I have ONE, and he's in a US BB.  I'd like to have more, so I can play other lines/types and still make scads of elite xp.   Currently, Gnevny and New Orleans are closest, but they're both a ways away yet.  I just blew all of my elite xp on my Montana captain, getting him a skill I needed.

 After finishing that grind, I don't really feel like playing battleships right now...  I want my Minsk!  and whatever is after Farragut.

  As a Montana captain I'll take that boosted AA insurance from an AA spec.  Even if I don't see a carrier every game, it's worth it if it convinces some CV to look elsewhere for free food- not to mention earning me credits and xp for all those fireworks er, I mean planes that got shot down!  Savvy CV captain avoiding a high tier USN BB like the plague??  Mission accomplished.   It's just the Texas/Cleveland syndrome.

 Besides, I LIKE shooting down planes, sue me...  Payback for all those low tier games in ships with crap AA:cap_rambo:.

 Everything else goes into survival and buffing my main battery.  Secondary builds on Montanas are kinda questionable- if you're diving into the midst of the reds all the time, you're doing it wrong.  With that gigantic turning radius, that's just begging to eat torpedoes... (not to mention citadel hits)

He is saying that it’s a waste to have a 19pt captain speced for something like AA and have no carrier in the match, or spec for secondaries and then can’t get close enough to use them in a match.
