Dear WG,

Why can't we change or alter the names of regular captains?  

Being able to do this would make it far simpler to remember the group of top captains that a player has.  For example, giving them all the same last name when they become a 21 point captain.  As long as the surname and first name are actual names from that nationality, what harm would it do?

It would be a huge help to organize and remember various captains.  This ability would not apply to the special captains, only the generic ones.

Can we have this ability in a future update please?  The names are chosen arbitrarily it seems.  Why can't we change them when we also speak that language?

Thank you!

You can on some at least...just the other day the game asked if I wanted to change the name of a commander...

But unfortunately I forget the circumstances (it might have just been when recruiting a new 1 as I did that the other day to check the amount of XP needed to train a commander from 0 points to 21 because I was brain farting so I recruited a new 1 for that...then dismissed him right away).

This is definitely a time you can do it.  I was recruiting and executing 6 pointers this weekend and noticed this.

AFAIK you can only change Commander image and name when you first recruit him and he has 0 points it.

Ummm... any particular reason why you were recruiting 6 point captains and then executing them?  :cap_wander_2:

Oh.  So,  now we can recruit 6 point captains with credits?  I thought it was a 3 point captain for 25 doubloons.

I'm gonna go check on that.

Thanks for the link.  Unfortunately, it is dead now.  do you remember the name of the software program or whatever it was?

Thanks!

 

P.S.  also, I assume after downloading a program, we must open a file.  does anyone know the name of the file and its location?

6 pt captain is 900K silver.

To convert to ECXP is 92k silver for 9250 EXP.  So it is about a million silver for 9250 ECXP.

Not efficient, but I have 600 million credits.

Well, when you have that many credits, why not do it?

I have over 300 million and nothing to buy with it (that is, that i really want to have).

I plan to bid again on the coal, but there seems to be no auctions going anymore.  What happened to that idea?

There's another one in 10.6 I think.
