Title says it all.  I don't care what you do to Deadeye.  I just want to know if there will be a FREE respec following your changes.  We all have captains that haven't been specced at all just waiting to see what you are going to do.  This way we can go ahead and spec our BB captains and play without locking  them into  something we  clearly may not want in the future.  I really don't think it's that much to ask.

I suppose there's a first time for everything (providing information early), but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Your questions in order are:

a) Are they actually going to do anything of significance to Deadeye?

b) What are those changes going to be?

Then and only then would I be asking about respecs.

I'd be surprised if we heard anything until the next patch notes come out, which will be a week from next Tuesday - although the last set of patch notes dropped on the MONDAY before the patch went live, so maybe they have a new schedule.

 

It should be noted that the only mention we've heard that there will be any change at all is on a Russian stream last week. Yes, it was from the horse's mouth, but since then there has been nothing in print, not even in the devblog. Until there is, I wouldn't trust a single thing anyone has to say about it, especially from the mouths of people who have been screaming since day one for its removal.

They've said that they will be likely replacing Dead Eye.  They've said they will do a dev blog on captain skills most probably early in 0.10.2, with the change likely to go live in 0.10.3.  They will most definitely tell you whether there will be free respecs before the balance changes go live, and they probably won't actually make a decision on that until they finalise their decision on what changes will be made.

Basically, as @ArIskandir put it so well, have patience.  Why are you in so much of a rush?

Wait and see ALWAYS ends well in regards to WG making player-friendly decisions.

Play some other game or do something else, and eventually they will let us know. From WG's track record with IFHE there should be a free respec again, though WG's definition of significant changes may differ.

There's also the fact that Flamu kinda turned it into sort of a conspiracy theory. As in waiting for free respecs to run out, then when Deadeye changes have people pay to change their skills. So even if WG planned to not do a respec, it kinda turned out into a PR dilemma.

Being a negative Nelly doesn’t help how I feel about the matter; which prompts the thoughts;

If players were too... clueless... to understand how WG’s wonderful idea for the Dead Eye skill should be used; why should the deserve a reset?

Also; they had a chance to reset all last month? If they didn’t use it, how is that WG’s fault?

They will announce something when they are ready with a replacement. Whether then refund will probably depend on the magnitude of the change. If is a minor change like reducing the dispersion a bit they may not refund. My preference is for them to take the whole skill out back and shoot it and it sounds like that is what they are planning to do. If so, they will probably refund points. They aren't going to say anything until they decide on what Deadeye will turn into.

I am looking to July before I start assigning any skills to my captains.

The Players will have settled down to work on the best builds possible for each ship and commanders by then.

WG will do what WG does best.

I have patience.

I think the latter depends on what form the former takes, and what other changes (if any) are bundled in with it.

If they simply reduce the Deadeye bonus, I doubt we'll get a reset.

I mean, if they do substantially rework Deadeye and don't offer a one time free respec for players to respec their captains, it's going to cause a riot on the forums.

It has the same effect as the alternative, and has the added bonus of not ramping up one's BP lol.

Most likely outcome: there will be NO FULL FREE respec. If the deadeye is changed or removed, they will remove it from all captains who have it, and give those captains 4 unused points, to be spent on a new skill or on another skills.

Possible future WeeGee response:  "No, possibly yes, or perhaps maybe partially."

Reality: WeeGee will only make it free if they think not doing so will significantly decrease their profits.
