Grinding for ELITE CMD XP

Dear WG,

 

Since you raised the bar so high, we are going to need some help. Yea I know ... I'm being an optimist right? Keep reading :)

 

My port is fairly small and yet I need to lift around 15-20 commanders from 19 pts to 21. That is like 24 millions elite cmd xp.

Considering I am currently running standard account and due to real life obligations (I play on average couple of games per day) its gonna take YEARS (I MEAN YEAAAAAARS) to level them up.

 

My goal in this game was to maximize my fleet ... and I was on a very good way to do so. Having 30+ T10 ships I was more than half way trough with my commanders leveling.

 

Now I am literally back at beginning (xp wise). I have to grind 1.2 million XP on each captain. Thats more than 19 pts combined.

 

Please give  players access (event, crates, daily missions,  ANYTHING accessible via playtime) to farm CMD XP signals / cmd xp special signals / CMD XP camos. 

There has not been an event for ages that would allow players to stock up on some of those... AND I DONT MEAN YOU SELL THEM FOR MONEY / COAL / RESEARCH POINTS or BULLSHITIUM.

 

I would like to see plain unlayered event giving some boosters, so that we would have a chance of leveling up the commanders somewhat comfortably.

I have 14 level 19 Captains and about 30 Captains between 14-17... CMD acquisition is going to be fun.. :Smile_sceptic:

 

All I have done is selected my Premium Lines and I am focussing on a single Captain from each nation to pilot them...

 

So one German Captain pilots my Premium KM ships and so on with each other nationalities... that way a single Captain will accrue XP from multiple ships.

 

I will not use many of the Silver Line at all and until things improve they can gather dust for all the concern I have.

The first easy daily mission give you 1.000 elite commander XP, I believe. You can also get 5% in your battles.

 

So, don't waste precious elite commander xp for promoting 19pt commanders to 21pt commanders, if you don't need the 2 extra points in your build.

I think the issue that you allude to demonstrates that WG's claim that the captain rework promotes diversity is extremely disingenuous (if you're feeling charitable, and a flat-out lie if you aren't); permit me to explain:

  • The cost of a 21 pointer is prohibitive to all but the most dedicated player (or extreme whale), without a major adjustment to the economy; this goes double for multiple 21 pointers.
  • The first consequence of this is that most captains out there will not be maxed out, so they'll most commonly be operating in the 10-19 point range; with the increase in cost of core skills, that means a likelihood of fewer skills per captain in general.
  • A second consequence is that far fewer players will have plenty of ecxp, and certainly not enough to easily generate captains beyond 19 points, so having multiple captains per ship is less practical (so fewer people will have both a 'tank' and a 'manly' captain for secondary BBs, for example).
  • A third consequence is that it is now a good idea to have a more 'general' build (for all classes where you have premiums) on your best captains, as you need them to work acceptably on all your premiums, rather than work well on just one or two ships.

All of that means that, in practice, there will be fewer different builds in use, *and* captains will - in general - tend to have fewer skills than before.

How many different nations do you play?

For one nation mostly ~2 captains can cover almost all ships. Only switching between silver ships will cause the retraining, but better than reskill I assume

A lot of people have T10s they never play, they just grinded them for the annual super and santa containers. These T10s should have 16-17pt captains in them. Salvage those for half a million FXP per captain, ship does not need a 17pt captain for playing it once a year. Also flags are not a finite thing, you get more as you go. Maybe make your fleet even smaller? Couple ideas. Did you salvage all your junk and reserve captains?

We used to get loads of stuff for free, some vocal individuals complained that we are getting 2 much free stuff and its ruining the game, now we get squat and they mostly moved on to other games... :Smile_sceptic:

I was dismissing all < 10 pointers on the fly. Who would have known that WG will someday make use of this, right? How unfortunate! :D

 

By the way ... allmost all my silver captains had 19 pts. Dismissing a 17 poiters on a silver T10 ship (even if you play her once per year) is stupid.

I have all silver T10 ships but three (plus bunch of premiums). Each one has dedicated captain, 3/4 have 19 pts, rest have from 15-21 (the ones that I mostly play once per year).

Some of the premiums have dedicated captains because of different build (like Anshan or Leningrad for turret traverse perk), I kept only a handful < T10 silver ships (like St.Louis, Clemson, Fiji) that also have dedicated captains with around 15-21 pts.

Step 1: WG moves the grinding goalposts on us to siphon in more money.

Step 2: OP asks for a free way to grind elite xp to help us out.

Step 3, at WG:

I mean, letting us catch up for free would defeat the purpose, which is always the same with WG.

BTW WG, I'd like a refund for the Pi cammos I bought for captain XP grinding - now that you've killed off the 19 point captain earnings.

I guess you also have BBs/Cruisers? Then just use Ovechkin for your silver BBs/Cruisers and on Leningrad. And your normal Silver DD Captain for Yueyang and Anshan.

Personally I have as a start get rid of lower than 10 p captains that are in navies that has at least a few 10p i.e. I keep a 6 p EU/Italian captain esp. the latter as I expect to need some in the ITA BB line and further lines.

I also keep Anime/fantasy/Santa Claus/Jingles and similar even if they mostly are lower in points. As I have a decent number unused 10p on the major navies from Christmas crates and on IJN/US from discarded CVs I have enough for future lines.

 

But the number of 0-6 p from various events that I was able to get rid of were 40-50.
