I have been away for half  a year or so and have just returned to play a few or 20 matches or so. I absolutely love it. Sure there's streaks of defeats but overall I feel pretty good about being back at it. I also play better I noticed. Maybe it's good to take a real break every now and then!

Game for me is still worth playing even after 5 years. I take breaks which I suggest is a must. There will always be good and bad but still worth playing

WG :  Don't hold your breath comrade, we're about to bork commanders creating an entirely new grind as it completely guts the way ships were balanced.   

Anyone not playing during free reset is going to be mad as it autofills some of the cap'n skills.

Wait until people see that with the breaking of balance that some ship configs are no longer viable.   The gold fiends at WG are salivating over the amount of gold that will need to be spent to get ships reconfigured as the associated captain build is no longer available.    Between secondary accuracy nerf and no more 139 and under range boost on CL, there will be quite a few ships needing at least 1 module change, some up to 3.

I thought there wasn’t going to be a free reset? But that there would be easy missions rewarding 50 doubs to pay the cost of the (temporarily) discounted reset?

If is free; easiest thing to do is just go into the personnel file UI, cycle through all your commanders, and zero them out.

Rebuild thier skills as you start using them again.

Cap'n skill reset is supposed to be free throughout the entire patch -- just like it used to be for CBs, reset as many times as you want during that period.

The 50 doubloons cost you referred to is for retraining to a new ship, not for resetting the captain skills. For the whole patch, resets will be free, and retrains will be discounted.

My plan is to reset all of mine to zero when it hits and then take a long break to see how it all shakes out. Being an unabashed ftp parasite, I want to make the most of the free respec.

According to a "lot" of players - you should really be hating it and want to quit asap.

Yeah, they really should just blanket resets to every captain in the game, regardless if you logged in or not or have in years, just reset them ALL.

The game is still mad fun as far as I’m concerned. Relatively good content and variety and missions to accomplish. The actual game play is also a blast. Sure you get the roflstomps and potatoes but overall it’s still a great game

Same here. I've never had a need to take a break though. It's been my top game since I discovered it in beta and I play it almost daily. As a kid I used to build plastic models of ships and play with them, and the game gives me the opportunity to do that, only without the hassle of building the models and devoting the space needed to house them.

There's a free skill reset 

The doubloon missions are to subsidize reassigning captains to different ships.

Thanks.

Guess I misunderstood an earlier news article or forum post.
