Back after a 2 month hiatus and it seems I missed a lot. Feels like the whole game graphics are different than it was before. I know I need to reassign captain skills but man, the combat just feels so much different than before. Seems more "arcade" in looks and feel now more than ever. Any hints or tips?

Yeeeesh. The Skills patch was pretty hard on hiatus-players. If you don't already have a lot of doubloons, expect to lose a lot of doubloons & Commander XP reassigning(free re-specs are well over by now). Of course the gameplay is different, people are still experimenting with their shiny new skills. So is Wargaming; expect more skill patches in the future.

List of other stuff going on:

  • Regia Marina battleships went live
  • Ranked Sprint is on
  • Operation Aegis is on
  • another Warhammer 40000 collab

As for tips, play all the cruisers you have since cruisers were the most negatively impacted by the skill rework(supposedly).

Yep. That's the direction in which apparently they want to move the game. And I agree your assertion on the looks. Everything is less and less...'dramatic" and more cartoonish.

I played only some Ranked, no randoms and mostly ops.

I would hold off on redoing all your captains right now Cuesta. Just redo one or two captains and use those. Wargaming will be adjusting skills soon and will either offer a free captain respec or missions for doubloons to redo captains. I am guessing they will go the free route so use it to zero out everyone and then take your time learning the new skill system.

That's very good logic. Thanks for your insight Taylor. Any idea when that adjustment might take place. Next patch or down the road another patch or two?

I suggest expanding on Taylor's suggestion until 0.10.7.

Mainly dont do anything major... Just  capt. respect the few capts you play with... The waters are going to be turbulent for about 6 months..

I predict calm seas after that (at least calm from the cpt rework).

The old system is nearly identical as the new ones.. Few places the nerf was globally...

  • Light cruisers...
  • Secondaries for BBs...

Other then that... No change IMO...

No worries, just hate to see anyone spend tons of resources on something that will probably be free fairly shortly. As far as when the changes are coming, only Wargaming knows but would expect it fairly soon. There seems to be a large group of people who think "Dead Eye" has hurt the game and Wargaming has said they are going to adjust it so I am thinking in the next patch. Course that is just a guess, anything is possible.
