With the New Captain’s Skills we now have a total of 62 skills with Many of those seemingly  with overly complicated names, in my humble opinion.  Here is a list I believe could be improved to become more easily understood;


1. Enhanced Anti-Torpedo Protection instead of simply Anti-Torpedo Protection.       

2. Concealment Expert instead of simply Concealment

3. Consumables Enhancements instead of simply Consumables I

4. Consumables Specialists instead of simply Consumables II

5. Close Quarters Combat instead of simply Close Quarters

6. Close Quarters Expert instead of simply Close Quarters

7. Emergency Repair Expert instead of simply Emergency Repair I

8. Emergency Repair Specialists instead of simply Emergency Repair II

9. Enhanced Torpedo Explosive Charge instead of simply Heavy Torpedo Charge

10. Fearless Brawler instead of simply Brawler

11. Fire Prevention Expert instead of simply Fire Prevention

12. Pyrotechnician (used to be Demolition Expert) Either return to Demolition Expert OR change to ARSONIST (Matches WOWS ARSONIST AWARD in use)

13. Survivability Expert instead of simply Survivability OR Survivalist

15. Close Quarters Expert instead of simply Close Quarters

16. Direction Center for Fighters instead of simply Fighter Control



I would also propose that WoWs initiate on their WoWs Wiki site a list of Standardized Abbreviations.   This would insure everyone uses the same ones and understands what others are saying or writing about.   It would also great aide to new players attempting to understand what others are writing about.  For instance it took me awhile before someone finally told me that CE stood for Concealment.    Here is my initial proposal using only the terms now used in the skills.          Respectfully submitted by dbw86.
