Does the following proposed method work?

(I may have gotten this wrong in my head - it would not be the first time!)

 

1. Select ship without a captain.

2. Recruit a new captain for free.

3. Win 1000 Captain XP from the battle (after any modifiers etc.)

4. Gain 5% Elite XP (1000 * 5% = 50 Elite XP) as standard for captains who are not maxxed out.

5. Dismiss captain and reclaim 25% of XP gained using credits.

    Cost = 10 credits for 1 XP.    25% of 1000 XP = 250 XP.

    Therefore, the cost to reclaim the elite XP on dismissal = 250 * 10 = 2,500 silver

    (presumably, this silver comes from the profit made in the battle)

6. Total elite XP gain from the battle = 50 (from item 4)  + 250 (from item 5)  =  300.

If you are playing for boosting your captains, why not just play them?

There is one thing to buy a huge number of 6 pointers for credits and dismiss them for more credits.

 

Maybe use this hastily improvised thought?

The XP you earn by playing the captain you want to boost gets say 105% of his captain XP. Let us say that you do 100000 in profit, after 10 games with 1000+5%=1050 + clanbonus buts say 0 for arguments sake.

10x1050=10.500 Captain/10,000 Elite XP

1.000.000 in profit buys a new 6p which you dimiss and recoup 25% w credits.

This way you get all elite XP you play and for the credits you boost it further.

 

You do not want reductions of your played captain/elite XP.

Edit: Please do not use extreme formatting. Think about the mobile users. 

If you don't want users to use these fonts and font sizes, then why does your forum offer them in the first place?

It's not as though I hacked it to be able to use them.
