Why are many Commander Skills "blocked"...?

Now, I, of course, get that certain ones have no application for the particular ship.

My problem however is that for example there is the "Manual Fire Control for Secondary Armament" skill, and that Skill isn't available for some of my ships, it seems I think Cruisers.
Like, I wanted this on the AGIR, and it's blocked out.  Why would it be blocked when Cruisers have Secondary's?

Help...  Thanks

Just because it has been "blocked out" doesn't mean it can't be selected and used. WG did this to tell people it is not considered an optimal skill for the ship but you can still pick it. I run MS on my Agir Capt (from my GK).

Yeah, as AdmiralThunder said, they're not 'blocked', they're just not 'optimal' for the ship, or at least WG has marked it so for new players.  If you are smart enough to understand they're not actually blocked, just not recommended, then you should be smart enough to understand that you can make your choices yourself.

Wait what...  Really?

That's strange.  Given what I'm seeing with the Secondary accuracy, apparently after being nerfed, it's unfathomably terrible, and that skill should help alot?

The skills goes by a generic recommendation by ship class instead of individual ship characteristics.

The blocks are fairly generic.  Manual secondaries is blocked on all cruisers and DDs and CVs.  Torp skills are blocked on all boats that dont have torps.  IFHE is blocked on all battleships (despite it having previously been viable).

Secondaries in general are an after thought and not usually optimal in builds for efficiency (they are more of a fun thing).  This won't change because WG won't want something that is AI controlled to be overly powerful.

I did notice on one commander one was selected when I moved him, but the way they have it, it gives the impression that it's a "non-working" selection/option.

So, ya, I didn't specifically try to select one.  Ugh, wargaming.  I've waisted a bunch of gold try to redo crews cause of this crap.  I think they did this on purpose to further screw us, make us noobs spend more money.
I mean think about it, it's TOTALLY BLOCKED OUT...  You wouldn't think it's a "working" feature behind the block.  Yet again, I HATE Wargaming.  Screw me in Tanks, keep screwing me in Ships.
