Commander Skills Feedback

Just logged in after the update this morning and one issue I have is the way the new set up is for commander skills. Some of my commanders have long since had their skill points distributed the way I want and now I check in and see that some skills are no longer good for the ship set up so the skill point is now totally wasted.

If the commander set up is going to change you really need to refund all commander skill points and let the user redistribute the points for free based on the new commander skill set up. You changed this we the players didn't and we should have a right to redistribute each commanders skills based on the new set up.

I only noticed this as I rebought a ship I had sold to buy my Worcester and when I went in to reassign the commander I had on the ship before selling it I noticed some skills I had were crossed out.

At least let us redistribute the points for free if you are going to change it it's wrong to force players to have to start over again with a new commander (especially if the current one is high up!) or else have to spend doubloons for it!

Just reset all commanders back to zero spent with the points available again for redistribution during this change and update to the commander system!

I feel robbed being some comments skills I had are no longer relevant with how they were previously distributed prior to this update!!

*sigh*

Nothing's changed, the crossed out skills are still in effect, it just means that WG does not recommend using that skill on that ship.

So if they are not recommending it they at least they should allow us to have the chance to change it based on how they have changed the game! That isn't to much to ask as they are the ones changing it and alot of us already have commanders high up and be really expensive if we had to change to many commanders.

A one time reset since there has been changes is not much to ask for!

They have already offered multiple free resets in the past when doing major skill or mechanic changes. If you must have a free option, use elite commander xp to reset without spending money.

While true that means you still have to have a ton load of those. In future perhaps that will let players reset but since they have let resets happen in the past and yes I do remember at least one reset they should allow it again since they did change the set up. It's wrong to change the set up and not let players have the ability to redistribute based on how they the devs changed the game. Lucky for me seems most my skill choices aren't such a huge issue with my near top level commanders but still.......

What skills are you talking about on what ship? Most of the crossed out skills are completely useless, like expert loader on British cruisers or torpedo rearmament expertise on most battleships.

exactly changing the system with no free reset is all about the money they think they can earn from the people who will no doubt use doubloons to reset.

Also, guys, none of the skills have changed at all. Everything is just as effective as they were yesterday. All that's happened is WG is putting a warning on skills that don't help your ship. Nothing else has changed.

Guess that's why they not put this skill is ineffective on the skills that are now crossed out.

Either way the system has changed and they need to allow the user to reset the points. There is no harm in that and lets the user chose appropriate skill sets based on how the game is currently set up.

WG generally allows a free respec if THEY make major changes to how things work or changes to the skills themselves. This sounds like they are just telling you you picked a sub-optimal skill. Wondering if they will allow respec with the CV rework. AA builds may become more required.

The system has not changed, outside of you having more information about what good and bad choices are. All the numbers are exactly the same as they were yesterday. If I'm wrong, please tell me what skill changed and by how much.

Also, you still haven't told us what skill you were using on what ship to make you so upset.

Like they said, no skills or utility of them has changed. It is only another step in the dumbing down of the interface.

I honestly can't understand why you are having such a problem understanding something very simple. Perhaps you don't bother reading the responses which made it very clear that Nothing has changed!! therefore a free reset isn't warranted. The only thing they did was mark the skills that would not apply to your ship. For example, if you are in a DD, skills having to do with planes don't apply so it's marked out. That's it! They did this for those who are too lazy to figure it out for themselves. 

Now, that said... let's say you added an extra fighter plane skill to a ship that has no planes and just realized this after they put an X across the icon. They don't owe you a free reset for being ignorant.

I do not recall what you are referring to.  What patch and what changed in the Versatility column?  I've been playing since August 2015 and the last change I can remember was when Evasive Maneuver was added in 0.6.0.

That was January 2017 and we got a respec.

I can't say.  I was told by very trustworthy sources that there was compensation given to any player who had participated in Clan Battles.  My clan choses not to, so I can't say with 100% absolute certitude.

I can say. I only participated in a few clan battles, and I still got the free respec for a few days around the beginning of ranked.

I abused the heck out of it as well. It was great for testing new and weird builds.
