When I started WOWS I knew nothing about the game (ie; what ships were available). I was hoping Hood, Prince of Wales, and Bismarck would be there. Only Bismarck was at the time. I started watching Jingles and saw the Minotaur and instantly decided I must have it (:cap_rambo:)  LOL. BUT despite all of that the 1st ship in the game I really set as a goal ship and worked hard at getting to was Fiji. I saw awesome replays of it, everyone always said it was awesome, playing against it (even a bot) was always brutal, and it was something I felt was reachable as a new player (T10 seemed impossible back then the grind was so long).

So I worked hard at the BRN CL line and despite being 100% FTP back then ( started with premium time about 1/2 through Leander) I slowly got closer. I finally got Fiji in Feb 2017. It was my 1st T7 and I was so excited. Got Cruiser burn out though with all those games and started more BB . Didn't play much Fiji for a while but eventually got back to it and progressed to Minotaur. As I went along I kept robbing Fiji of it's Capt for the higher tier ship. So it never really had more than about a 12-14 pt Capt at any point.

Once I was to Minotaur and the T8 and T9 had the next highest pt Capt's poor Fiji got itself a new one. One of the Dunkirk's I got in the armory. Started on 10pts. Just now I finally reached my goal of having Fiji with a 19pt Capt! :cap_horn:It is the only non T9/T10 19pt Capt I have right now and is my 24th 19pt Capt.

Congratulations Fiji. You now have the Capt you deserve. :Smile_honoring:

Wait, you want a 19 pointer for all your RN CLs?

I guess you really like the RN CLs. Does the Emerald get it's own too?:Smile_trollface:

Eventually I want a 19 pt Capt on every tech tree ship I have ( it's well over 100 - have a lot of premiums - 194 ships in total at present). I don't keep T1 or T2 ships but in lines I like I will go T3-T10. So for BRN I currently have...

  • T1 Black Swan - 6 pts (just the Capt - I buy the Swan if I go pink and use it to do the penalty - have a Capt in reserves for it - it's actually that weeb Nelson one)
  • T3 Caledon - 10 pts
  • T4 Danae - 10 pts (weeb Hood Capt)
  • T5 Exeter - I use Belfast Capt
  • T5 Emerald - 11pts
  • T6 Leander - 12 pts
  • T7 Fiji - 19 pts (Bert Dunkirk)
  • T7 Belfast - 11 pts (has separate Capt - needs IFHE)
  • T8 Edinburgh - 13 pts (almost at 14)
  • T9 Neptune - 14 pts (almost at 15 - Jack Dunkirk)
  • T10 Minotaur - 19 pts

So I have my work cut out for me LOL.

Damn, that's a lofty goal. That's 100M XP assuming you don't get any more ships. And in coop too....

 

Guess you don't need the NTC to keep you interested then.

No interest in NTC at all. Took too much work to get to all the T10's (just need Audacious and have them all - current anyway - at T8) and I am NOT starting over. 

It isn't just BRN that I am grinding Capt's either. I have tons of them in progress I am working on in every line. I will let you figure out how much XP it is because it would depress the hell out of me to do it LOL...

US: (have 19 pt Capt's on Montana / DM / Worcester / Gearing / Buffalo [Halsey] / Fletcher [US Dasha] )

  • T10 CV Midway - 17 pts
  • T9 DD Benham - 15 pts (US Alexander Ovechkin)
  • T9 CL Seattle - 14 pts
  • T8 CA Baltimore - 14 pts (George Doe)
  • T7 CL Helena - 14 pts
  • 14 others between 10-12 pts
  • 6 10 pt Capt's in Reserves (including John Doe)

BRN: (have 19 pt Capt's on Conqueror / Minotaur / Daring [BRN Dasha] / Fiji [Bert Dunkirk] )

  • T9 CL Neptune - 14 pts (Jack Dunkirk)
  • T9 DD Jutland - 13 pts
  • T8 CL Edinburgh - 13 pts
  • 11 others between 10-12 pts
  • 1 11pt Capt in Reserves

RU: (have 19 pt Capt's on Kreml [Kuznetsov] / Moskva [Viktor Z] / Grozovoi [Bi-Nat Ovechkin] / Sovetsky Soyuz [Vasiliy Z] / Dmitri Donskoi )

  • T10 DD Khabarovsk - 15 pts (RU Ovechkin)
  • 4 others between 10-11 pts
  • 28 10 pt Capt's in Reserves (yes 28 of them)

KM: (have 19 pt Capt's on GK / Hindenburg / Z-52 [R Von Jutland] )

  • T9 BB FDG - 14 pts ( F Von Jutland)
  • 11 others between 10-12 pts
  • 6 10 pt Capt's in Reserves

IJN: (have 19 pt Capt's on Yamato and Shimakaze {Isoroku the Cat] )

  • T10 DD Harugumo - 17 pts
  • T10 CA Zao - 16 pts
  • T10 CV Hakuryu - 14 pts
  • T8 CA Mogami - 13 pts
  • 8 others between 10-12 pts
  • 2 6 pt Capt's in Reserves

FRN: (have 19 pt Capt's on Republique [J J Honore] and Alsace)

  • T10 CA Henri IV - 16 pts (C H Honore)
  • T6 DD Aigle - 13 pts (was prepping for French DD's but no interest in them now that I know what they are)
  • 4 others between 11-12 pts
  • 6 others between 6-7 pts
  • French Reserves are empty

Pan-Asian: (have 19 pt Capt on Yue Yang)

  • T9 DD Chung Mu - 15 pts
  • 2 others at 11 pts (1 is Quan Rong)
  • 1 10pt Capt in Reserves (Da Rong)

ITL: (have 19 pt Capt on Roma)

  • T7 CL Duca Degli Abruzzi - 13 pts (I need to get going on this one and one in Reserves for the Italian Cruisers coming SOONTM)
  • 2 10 pt Capt's in Reserves
  • 1 6 pt Capt in Reserves

Others...

  • T7 DD Blyskawica - 13 pts (Poland)
  • T7 DD Haida - 12 pts (Commonwealth w/ 1 10 pt Capt in Reserves)
  • T7 CL Nueve De Julio - 11 pts (Pan-American w/ 2 10 pt Capt's in Reserves)

So there you go. I have more than enough to do just Capt wise. I really want to get those last T10 Capt's done and also get some pts on that Italian CL Capt. That is where the focus will be. That and getting that Ovechkin Capt for Benham done as it uses a slightly different build than my other US DD's.

You can do the math on the XP needed. My head hurts just typing it LOL. :Smile_facepalm::Smile_ohmy::Smile_veryhappy:

Lets see, 19pt commander inventory.  I have 60 botes.

US (19pt commander on Mass*, Benham, Salem)

IJN (19pt commander on Akizuki, Kitakaze, Harugumo, Zao)

BRN (19pt commander on Daring*)

RU (None)

KM (19pt commander on Bismarck*, Z-52)

FRN (None)

Pan-Asian (Anshan, Loyang*)

ITL (None)

Others (None)

* Botes with Unique Commanders

None of the rest of my botes have less than a 12pt commander most 14pt or higher.

I will pick up a Georgia with coal in the next day or 2 and have 1.5 million Elite Commander experience that I will use on new John Doe from the Armory and promote from 10 to 19pt commander.  Looking forward to playing the Georgia.

Once upon a time there was a noob. He had a strong captain in the Fiji, a ship he played a lot, so it was 10+ points when he finally unlocked the Edinburgh. T8 Ranked came along, and the noob had aspirations to playing in Ranked and also to the permanent campaigns. So he moved the captain up to the Edinburgh in order to have something decent to bring to Ranked and suffered through one of the most difficult grinds of his nooby career thus far. 

Fast forward through various events, and the noob promoted his captain through much hard work and the use of many flags and premium ships to a 19 pointer, but he regretted moving the captain out of the Fiji because it had always been his favourite ship. Granted, having it at T8 meant it got a lot of play for permanent campaigns, but still...

Come the rework and the opportunity to reassign captains between ships for free, the noob did the right thing and moved the 19 point captain right back into the Fiji. And there he will remain.

 

My other 19 pointers reside in the New Orleans (but he plays most often in the Salem) and the Monarch. Both of these ships have the Congratulatory camo which boosts captain XP by 50%, and now that they are either ground-past or not intended to be ground past (I'm stopping at T8 in a lot of lines), not having 50% ship XP bonuses doesn't matter for them. Two of the three (one US, one British) have Last Stand so they can also serve in premium destroyers; the third, Jack Dunkirk, has been set up as a battleship specialist.

I have not yet decided who the fourth is going to be.

I'm currently sitting on a pool of 420k Elite XP, just grinding away at it.   Just looking to see how far I can get it, before the temptation to USE it becomes too strong, lol.

LOADS of captains that need boosting, but none of those on ships I actually play are at a point where 1 more point would get them a new skill...

Some of the strongest possibilities:

Alsace:  11 points.   It's OG 19 pointer got moved to Repub.

Monarch.  I have no 19 pointers in the RN line, and Monarch's is the highest.

Leander. "     and also just to make Fiji extra nasty when I get it, lol.

Mogami.  Also no 19 pointers.   Progress in the IJN lines was temp halted while I worked on other things.

Roon.  Hindy will most likely be my next tier 10.   This capt is 16, I think.

Seattle.  I need a 19 pt CL captain.  This is the highest, and actually lives on Boise. (Or Charleston!)

Not that fast! if I played 24/7 the rest of the year I couldn't get all my ships to have a 19pt Capt.

Well, I have a bunch of 19pt DD Capt's already; 7 actually. Have a few others and they range from 13-17. I don't have a lot of DD's though. Mostly the T10's and then a few T8 and T9's. The rest are premiums. So don't need too many more to have all my DD Capt's to 19.  Think it is 6 more and then all would be 19? I would like to get all the T10's to 19 by year end. That would mean Harugumo (17) and Khabarovsk (15) and all of them would be 19. Harugumo will get done no question. I hate Khab and don't play it so it might not. Might just chip away at it with Elite Capt XP. Almost forgot the special Capt I am doing for Benham with the US Ovechkin. That is at 15 and will get done this year.

Only have 5 CV Capt's in total. Highest is Midway at 17, then Hakuryu is at 14, and then Implacable, Lexington, and GZ are all 11-12. Don't even have a Capt on Shokaku right now (need a Capt for it - might get that legendary IJN one that will be sold for it? That would start at 10). So not too may there. The thing is I only play CV in spurts. Midway will definitely get done this year and maybe Hakuryu. The rest will not.


Getting all my DD and CV to 19 this year is not realistic but it is far more so than Kiz's quote. :Smile_facepalm::Smile_veryhappy:

  • T1 Black Swan - 6 pts (just the Capt - I buy the Swan if I go pink and use it to do the penalty - have a Capt in reserves for it - it's actually that weeb Nelson one)
  • T7 Fiji - 19 pts (Bert Dunkirk)

So my weeb Nelson, Mrs. Nelson I like to call her, is commanding the HMS Nelson.  She has 14 points now.  She also has her Black Swan competency still intact!  You see where I'm going, right?  I have a 14 point captain for my Black Swan.  :Smile_trollface:

Bert is also on MY Fiji.  He isn't quite so BERT as yours (16 points), but he seems to do pretty well.  :Smile_great:

My Fiji is the ship that has my highest non T10 captain, 16 pts I think. It also has a stupid amount of XP, 675k, which is the highest of all my tech tree ships apart from Yamato (890k) which I ground out the Legendary Module for . Fair to say she is my favourite.
