I've only dismissed captains that had no XP, so forgive me if this is a thing, but I have plenty of captains with like 3 to ~10 points that I don't need which I would very much like to use the XP on other higher trained ones. Why can't we recycle these captains? Even if it costs some credits/dubloons to get back the Elite Commander XP it would be awesome to be able to consolidate these.

They'd prolly just credit you with something useless like elitexp and not elite commander xp, saying you could then pay dubloons to convert it.

Or to just be able to get some credits for selling them (same as is done with ships themselves).

In the same vein, if I could get rid of some of my 70 unwanted captain reserve places...

I'd love it if we could take five 3 point captains and form Voltron captains.

I have something like 60 10 point captains in reserve, most of which I'll never use now that I'm doing the captain thing a different way. I'd love to be able to get rid of them, just because.

Even worse are the obscene number of "Reserve Slots" being dumped into containers as rewards. These are totally useless and have zero value as a reward. Personally I have over 100 "Reserve Slots" and I only use a small handful (less than 10). It would be nice if they had a value and could be sold for credits at least!

I keep asking for a place in the inventory to sell unwanted captain slots. Currently I have 135 empty slots that I will never use.I have more empty captain slots than I have ships or captains.

Lol, I bought a few Christmas containers whilst, er, relaxed, and ended up with fifteen 10-point Emden commanders.... oh yes I'd like to liquidate them for their XP!

At least 10 pointers are basically a usable captain. Good for assigning to all the random tech tree ships you might save and want to use later on rare occasions.

I wish there was an option to use doubloons to convert dismissed commanders xp into free xp. Wargaming would make money and some players would be happy. Seems a no brainer to me.

Hence why they haven't thought of it, perhaps?

Wouldn't mind if I could assign any of my unused ARP captains to any nation's ship. Still have like 8 10-pointers, and they'd be useful on keepers like NC and Fiji.

 

Can see Russian, French, and Italian captains in reserve being useful for their BB and cruiser lines coming later, assuming WG intends to outfit every nation with a complete navy whether paper or built ship.

They want to sell reserve slots obviously, but allowing some kind of conversion would doubtless make them far more money.
