After a week, are you changing your Captain's builds?

Almost all of my ships have some sort of CE build, not all, but most. Also, all of my cruisers save the IFHE ones have RL (rpf)… with the lack of dd's, more or less perma spotting going on with CV's both of those four point skills seem to be less powerful post apocalypse.

Have you guys made wholesale changes to your ships, or just a few tweaks?

lol... I fixed a lot of captains (who had a skill that were pure mistakes); but overall focus per captain, I left the same.

Pretty much moved AFT to AA sector reinforcement on my BBs and CA/CLs. I am keeping CE since one CV doesn't worry me and sometimes there are no CVs.

Niet... My tier 10 build stays the same since the some ol some ol stale meta before the rework. If the CV stayed the same, then I would add torp detection to my BB cpt build.

Luckily, the Haku is getting the  nerf bat, I don;t have to change nothing nor adapt to it. Its as if we had the old RTS CVs again.

So no changes for me...

For DDs I have removed the 4-point Concealment Expert from all captains.  No use for it now, with planes all over the sky.  I use the 4 points towards SE and SI instead to increase survivability.

Where I removed the CE captain skill, on high tier DDs I use the concealment modification upgrade instead.

My computer death sort of made the decision for me lol. Having said that I think will keep my builds as is. We should get another free respect in a couple months.

Reset all my captains, yanked a bunch of modules off ships I never play. Set the captain for whatever I'm doing, then reset after game.

Amazingly, I haven't gone into a game yet with an unset captain, but that's probably because mostly I log on, then wonder why I did.....:Smile_amazed:

I'm still playing around and tweaking. And I hope (and asked) that they extend the time for doing this for free since the first patch for 8.0 might be VERY significant on how it all plays out... no reply as yet, so I fear that we're back to the way it was on Friday.

I need to go through and reset all my unused reserve captains..    Retrain any that might need to go in a ship somewhere...   I need to spend some time with this..   This ends 2/8?

There is no point to running CE on anything right now, not even DDs to be honest, but I can understand if you wanna keep it.

Yeah, as a CA/CL skipper, I was running heavy AA builds anyways

Still, things have changed, so.....

Yes.  I'm taking advantage of the free skill change (as well as ship training and upgrade dismounting) to fix a few mistakes in captain skills.  I did not think it was possible to misclick a skill, but it apparently is.

Yes, it is still useful to run CE.

Not really, if there is a single CV in the game your concealment means nothing.   You wanna waste points on it, thats your call, but I wouldn't use it right now.

I've found my AA builds are almost useless so I've been getting rid of them

I think they should keep captain resets  free until CV gameplay is finalized.

If it's a single CV, they can only be in one place at a time.  CE might not help versus planes, but it still works just fine on ships.

I kept my german and french 2ndary BB builds, and DD builds.  Everything else has been set to zero and I'll wait to see how it goes before re-applying skills.  I doubt I will use CE on BBs going forward.  Simply not worth 4pts.

They've already said they will have another week of free skill resets down the road, after the CV gameplay has been finalized.

Few if any changes. 

Not going to chase "the new hawtness" meta build every time Wargaming gets a notion to make a mess of the game.
