Has anyone messed around with playing battles with no commander?

I actually accidentally went into a tier X battle in a Jutland with no commander the other day! I just played a bit more careful and it wasn't so bad, but definitely noticeable.

I was thinking about doing a entire session with no commanders just to get some perspective.

I believe if you do so you also don't get the 5% "free commander XP" thingy that was one of the good ideas from 0.10.0

Quote

Commanders who don't have the maximum number of skill points will additionally bring you Elite Commander XP in the amount of 5% of the Commander XP gained.

TBH, I'd actually like a mode where everyone plays without commanders and skills and see WHO IS A REAL CAPTAIN!

**** - off Nickyboi, I'm going to fix this ship myself!

Been doing quite that since 10.0

I have all my captains with no skills, and play the ships with no problem (co-op)

There are a number of combat effects signals that, taken together, provide greater benefits than the skills of a commander with a middling number of skills points.

You have to have a captain on the ship but if you don't train them all they do is watch.

No, part of the patch was you can enter battle with no captain.

It doesn't matter if they are not trained, there are no buffs with zero point captains. I suppose you could move trained captains to the reserve to see how the ship performs with a zero point captain.

No I mean you can enter a battle with a ship with nothing in the commander slot. No captain trained or not.

Right but if you haven't trained them it is the same as no commander.

It's actually pretty great for all the ships that I DON'T have a build on. So like, Leningrad, or Octabryskaya Revolutsiya or Sims B or whatever. REALLY useful for quick snowflake clearing! You don't have to keep switching captains in to go into Co-Op and knock the snowflakes off.

Yeah, Co-Op, you CAN go in there with zero skills and do alright. Randoms...not so much, imo.

Might be an interesting way to learn to play a ship better.

Agreed, you also can get a sense of the ship characteristics. Also might just be a fun challenge to see if you can keep your performance high.

Isn’t there a warning letting you know there is no captain ?

Not at this time, I have put this feedback in. Hopefully there will be a "Are you sure" pop up or something.

That's weird, somebody showed me a screenshot of a popup warning for exactly that.

I have definitely gotten a warning every time I tried to go into battle having forgotten to assign a captain. It's a big popup, impossible to miss.

It's a little more than a pop-up,

Hmmmmm, wonder if we patched this! Because that definitely didn't show up when I did it the first time, I just tested and it did pop up... 

:Smile_izmena:

Good catch!
