...will we be getting a free commander skills reset. I haven't read anything along those lines but it would seem reasonable. Anyone know anything for sure. TIA:Smile_child:

Last night when Notser was streaming the changes on PTS he asked Sub_Octavian if there would be resets, and during the stream Sub answered back and confirmed that yes there would be, but, that it would be an opt in with the update when it drops. Apparently this is so that the servers don't implode from everyone doing it at once as well as player accounts that aren't being used don't hog it up as well.

Maybe I'm misjudging the situation here, but I can't help feeling like they're hoping most people don't notice that they can opt-in and end up spending doubloons for respecs.  Otherwise, I don't really understand why they wouldn't just give everyone free respecs for a week or two.

That's pretty cynical.

And I agree :Smile_veryhappy:

Did he really say that?

If so, that's almost as rich as when they said Narai had to be pulled while it is in the shop get fixed. 

Because, I guess changing the skill reset cost from 500 to 0 must really be tough on server loads ...

So....how does one opt in to something like a commander respec?

Better question is if there are going to be any case-by-case buffs to certain ships that will see a pretty decent chunk of their DPS hacked off. Atlanta, Dallas, Helena/Boise/Nueve, and Abruzzi were already at meh level, now they will be seeing some major issues against BB's. Maybe they should just remove their citadels, particularly Atlanta who might as well just be a crappier DD under the change as her survivability is basically null.

I hate opt in because we all know that someone will show up after the resets are done and complain.

There will most likely be an opt in button somewhere on the news article for the patch on the WoWS site and the in game news tab

To be fair, it wouldn't be that, it would be the thousands of people at once telling the server that they want to change their skills, and taking lots of time to do it, because they have lots of boats.

They might even have a popup in port when you log in.
