Once you have a 19pts captain and use him where does the XP for him go after a battle? Do you just lose it? He can't use anymore right?

Have only one 19 pointer in my Boise , a 17, 15, 14, two 11, two 10, the rest below 10. Should I stop using my 19 and the ship he is in? Right now its my favorite ship.

Right now I have USN captains, RN, KM and one for Friesland I will get to some day (got him to 10) when he is 19 without using ship. By then maybe I will be good enough, but last on my list for now.

The ships in my port (or future ships on my wish list)I hope to have dedicated Captains for are:

Clemson

Exeter and possible future RN CA

Warspite

Fiji 

BOISE

Wichita

Hood

Scharnhorst 

Bismark

Cossack

Massachusett

Georgia

Friesland

My t3 and lower ships I use all have around t6 to t10 already. Don't play them much anymore, but once in a while they do get used. Which Captains match up best with above ships that are available in the armory with most popular build? Which might work well in two ships without changing skills? Should I focus 0n one at a time or spread it around?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

19 point captains earn elite commander XP, which can be used on any commander. Ideally, you'd put 19pt on ship you play a lot and any premium ships you can (to maximize earning elite commander xp).

On the Commander perks screen look to the lower left. That is Elite commander XP and can be used on other captains or to switch commander perks with out using doubloons.

As others have mentioned, the commander XP (CXP) you earn on a 19-pointer gets converted (automatically and for free) into Elite CXP (ECXP). ECXP can be spent on any commander below 19 points, so grinding a 19 point commander is actually grinding any sub 19-point commander.

Assign your highest point Captain to a ship of your choice, knock off the retraining cost if needed, then put that Captain on a premium ship and use Elite Commander XP to speed up to 19 points. Also move them to each premium for that nation. Use your 19 pointer in all your premiums to increase your Elite XP pool quicker.

The 19 point commander is a big step to doing bigger things.  All the elite commander XP goes into a pool that can be used by any commander.  It can be used to retrain commanders if you need to switch them to other ships.  It can be used to get a commander to a higher skill level sooner.  It can be used to respec a commander too.  A 19 pointer commander allows you to accumulate another one even quicker.

Those camos don't have base XP bonuses, though, so they're no different than ones with basic 50% xp camos. You end up with the same amount of captain xp, since ship xp is directly tied to captain xp.  Those camos are worse if you're grinding, since you want that ship xp to speed up the grind.
