Commander skills

I'm wondering if it makes sense to use each skill point as you get them, then redistribute when you have enough to get the next tier of skills

So  starting with a three point Capt. I pick one T-1 skill and then one from  T-2 then as I gain another point I add another  tier 1 skill  and then another  tier 1 so i end up with three tier 1 skills and one T-2 until i gain a third point and redistribute to  have one skill of each  T-1 T-2 and T-3.

this way while i''m playing to gain more commander points I'm using the ones I already have until I can get to a T-3 skill

Do you have a good job and make good money?  Does $2 USD mean much to you?  If not, then spend the Doubloons to reset the skills and at higher tiers the 500 Db to complete training.  Otherwise try to plan for the future when you use your points.

In my case, I have a bunch of captains with 12 points, awaiting that 13th or 14th.  (My Elite CXP goes for re-training.)

This^^^

If spending $2 per reset if not a big deal, then sure. It would be cheaper to plan ahead what you want your Cmdrs to have and just buy the skills when you get the points.

I used to use a text file to keep track of what I planned to do, but now I have a spreadsheet made by Counter_Gambit to do that instead.

For me yes. For others, it depends.

Yeah, actually.  I'd feel naked without mine.

So, you’re saying that a spreadsheet is the most fun you can have with your clothes on?

No, driving racy cars is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.  But a quality spreadsheet beats Angry Birds.  Or Twitter.

So the race cars have to be racy?

Nah.  Too one-track minded.  Real racy cars have to negotiate actual streets with curves and hills — rather like those of a woman.  A road course like the Nordschleife at Nürburgring is close and a lot safer (not to say safe). Kinesthesia is great, but there should also be an awareness that you have your life in your own hands.

That was the first race car that I could find with the...top...um up.

 

So is this race car a racy car?

That's a pretty racy car.  Looks like the garages at LeMans.  It'll do.
