I had several 19 Points Captains so since I already had 4 million EXP, I had to spend it all on only 3 of them, why WG did not give us a compensation to get to 21 ???

And now the difference from 19 to 21 points is 1.2 million EXP. WHY ??? 300 000 per points was bad enough but 500 grand to 20 and 700 grand to 21 ???

How long is it going to take to get to 21 Points ??? Thanks a lot WG

Anybody can tell me how to get EXPs faster ? Apart from using expensive special flags ?

As a casual player, I am unsure if I will ever get my SINGLE 19pt captain to 21. It seems like such a daunting task... I enjoy the game and like to play various ships... I cannot imagine playing only 1 ship when I get to play. 

They really should have just given all commanders a 2pt boost.

I would say the obvious flags and camos and combining that with the first win bonus on the captians ship and every premium you have.

They went completely over the edge with this.  Pure $ grab, complete jerk move to customer base.

IT will take  FOREVER ! 1.2 million EXP for TWO Captains points ? the only plus is that 1 Captain has 4 sets of skills from DD to aircraft carrier

Prior to the rework, I had 5 legendary captains, only two were 19 pointers, one was around 14 points, and two were 10 pointers. I banked enough ECXP to make two 21 pointers by the time the patch went live. I made the others 21 points by selling off almost every single captain for every single tech tree ship I had using the credit option. I then replaced most of the TT captains with 6 point captains (on ships I enjoyed playing) and 0 point captains for those ships I only play for snowflake events. The only tech tree ship captains I have kept better captains on are those I am currently grinding. Once the ship gets elite status, the captain will be sold off for the XP and replaced with a 0 or 6 pointer. New ships get a 6 point captain to begin the grind all over again. They are nothing more than XP banks to be cashed in once the grind is done. IMHO this is the best way to play the game with the rework, focus in on a few captains and disposing of the rest. 

For tech tree ships I enjoy playing like Kuma, St Louis, Fiji, etc., I have put either a special or unique captain on each that I will not sell. Since I had the doubloons, I went ahead and bought all the unique captains from Armory save for the Dashas, and bought the last two special captains I was missing (Jutland and Rong).

Because I believe most people DID NOT ask for this crap ! It ruined months of grinding.

This isn't a steak dinner you are buying at a restaurant where you tell the cook exactly how you want your purchase.  Game companies make their own decisions about what happens in their game, because they create and own the product, not the players.

They often consider suggestions from the players, but the players don't make the final call or decisions for the company.

You had 19 points before the patch, you have 19 points after the patch.  They didn't take away your captain's points that they had.

It's a global change that impacted everyone, it's not like WG awarded 21 point commanders to everyone on the red team, but not you.  It's a new goal for everyone to work toward, which is a good thing.  Online games need constant new goals for the players or they become stagnant.  The rolling stone gathers no moss and all that.

I would expect that in another X years, they will do it again.

If I’m still around and they do something particularly lunatic like go back to RTS carriers I’ll laugh so hard I may bust a gut.

Or even better stop the reliance on purchasable items to make the captain grind more realistic.  Oh, right.

MMORPGs do stuff like that when they do balance reworks.

I used my ECXP and FXP to promote several Captains to 21 points as soon as the 0.10.0 patch dropped and remaining points were used to round-up a few Captains to reach specific skills.

Since the patch, I have accumulated 818K of ECXP and FXP.

I have not spent a cent since the 0.8.0 CV rework patch, but I get plenty of special flags.

Don't bother. Upgrade what you can, when you can, and don't take part in their silliness.

No, as I said remove the need entirely.  Band-aids are still band-aids.

In short, WG saw that people had been stocking up on elite commander XP and didn't like it. The new skills don't bring much to the game, but they do 1) get people to use their stockpile of elite commander XP, and 2) get them to use commander XP flags. This, like many other things, has nothing to do with what the player base has been asking for.

Man, I made a graph of this like, 2 months ago.  Yet nobody seemed to care, it was all just makarov-gate.  And now we're here.
