20 Point Captain Bug

I was just using the free retraining to re-spec some captains when I was screwing around with my Smolensk captain and clicking far too many times since the interface was slow and it went to a screen which gave me the option to add a 20th point. I should have taken a screen capture however I didn't. The odd thing, and why I didn't try adding the 20th point, was that it showed the 20th point would cost me all my ECX and FXP which was around 900,000 (Before training: full amounts/after training: 0).

 

Has anyone had this happen?

Only extra *stronk" glorious Soviet peoples ships will get 20-pt captain, comrade. Join the Party! :Smile_glasses:

IIRC in the past there was a way to get skill point past the max (15 back then, i think) but it costed like 999,999,999 exp to get it so it was effectively a hard cap

I thought about ti but I didn't want to lose nearly 1,000,000 of combined EXP for nothing. One thing to add, it didn't let me try to purchase more than 1 point so a 21+ point captain didn't seem possible at that time.

It was 18 points and I vaguely recall reading somewhere that some brave and possibly foolishly obsessed people actually did get past it to 19.

Those people got a metric Eff-ton of elite captain XP awarded to them when the system changed.

Maybe not every strange thing in game is a bug?

Omg, yes. It would make many DD builds in particular sooo much better

It really wouldn't surprise me if WGing is considering adding a 20th (or higher) point in the future and so may have encoded that into the SW already.  It would give them another way besides the "Regrind Bureau" to gather up the resources they seem to feel players are hanging onto.   Hmm..."Regrind Bureau"...I'm certain that's not what it's called but I don't think I'll Google the phrase to find out.

20 point captain owners handbook:

Rule 1 ) We do not talk about 20 point captains.  

Rule 2 ) See rule 1. 

 

Nothing.  To see here.

Hmmmmm...

Where mayhaps could one find such a bug?

 

Asking for a friend. A friend with a hungry hungry Grizovoi captain. 

Or so I was told.
