Redistributing captain skills on a 19 point captain is expensive. Often, I only wish to redistribute 1 or 2 points, instead of all of them.

Suggestion; pro-rate the cost per point and allow redistribution 1 point at a time.

For example, 1 point would cost 23 doubloons or 10000 elite commander XP.

It's cost effective. Everyone wins.

Except for Wargaming, who mine doubloons from whales who want to re-spec without grinding ECXP.

They do offer reductions every once in awhile, for a good part of the month was 1/2 off.  I missed it and decided on Monday to change my Kurfurst from secondaries to tank and main guns build, so a pile of doubloons to respec my 19 point captain and to demount modules, now it plays similar to a Montana and still have the Republic if I want a secondaries fight.

I don't have any info about such changes. I think we'll not have such option since we have several days a year when everybody can redistribute perks even for every battle and of course redistributing using Commander Elite XP.

 I have to agree with the OP.  It wouldn't hurt to test this on one of the servers.  I'm betting it would actually increase revenue allowing the playerbase to respec points as needed on a daily basis as opposed to a few select times a year.  I'm pretty tightfisted when it comes to spending on commanders.  This would loosen my hold.

Sure I am for it, I've got one CPT I would like to respec right now. However, what is in it for WG? Lose a revenue stream to cater to indecisive players? Sorry dont see it happening. 

Next time...

I'll transfer this topic in feedback as others similar. But I can't advice you to hope for any changes in future updates. The idea is not unique and if it is not implemented than there are reasons for that.

One additional thought in favor: while this does make it less expensive in real money terms for a player to re-spec their captain(s), this could also lead to a lot more people taking advantage of the reduced cost to update captains as they progress.  For example, if I'm holding an 8-point captain on one of my destroyers right now, I've opted into Preventative Maintenance, Last Stand, and Survivability Expert...the extra 2 points are just sitting there waiting for me to get to 10 so I can throw Concealment Expert on.  But if I knew that I could re-spec just 2 points at a time, I'd be much more likely to throw those extra 2 into Adrenalin Rush for now, secure in the knowledge that I could shell out 50 doubloons (or what have you) to convert that into Concealment Expert once I'd ground out the 9th & 10th points. 

From an overall player satisfaction standpoint, such a system would also encourage more experimentation among captain builds, allowing for more varied gameplay.

They are here to make money, not cater to every player.

What does this have to do with making useful suggestions?

Are you arguing they should increase the cost of retraining to make even more money? Is that your position?

I'm confused with your sentiment. Perhaps you are a WG stock holder.
