Captain skill level 3 for tier X CV

Since I had to "retrain" my Essex captain, started thinking about what skill to choose at level 3... This topic is not much about what is the best skill for it but rather why arent any usefull skill at all?

 

Used to be dogfighting right? But since they changed parameters from "slowest" fighter to "lower tier" fighter that skill became useless for a tier X CV (since its fighters are always the higher tier and so can never use that skill)

 

Superintendent? Well there is nothing a CV can use there so about as useless as the dogfighting skill.

 

Vigilance? Planes will spot any incoming torpedos (and whatever launched them) long before that skill even came to effect. So another waste of 3 captain points.

 

High Alert then? Again not of much use to a CV despite its the only skill of the four that can actually be used. But... its not that much usefull anyway.

 

 

Guess we're stuck with wasting 3 points (just so we can unlock the level 4 and 5 skills), rather then having an advantage of a higher skilled captain.

I know there were discussions about new skills (and changing condictions on existing skills like AFT giving range to the main guns) but never heard anything about the possiblity of a actually usefull CV skill for level 3 (unless you wanna give CV's defensive AA ability so superintendent can be a actual choice... its not like any cruiser and DD dont have it anyway already so wouldnt mind it)

Dogfighting also buffs your slower planes (tb, db vs fighter) on the same tier. It's not very useful, but it think IJN fighters are slower than US on tier X? So it would give a Hakuryu more advantage, but what else do you want to skill?

Well, you could allways go for damage control to negate a bit of damage, but really, you got those two choices. Not much else.

Does it even still buffs the slower planes? Thats what dogfighting used to do but since they "reworked" it now it gives a buff to lower tier planes against higher tier ones (it doesnt mention anywhere any buff of a slower plane over a faster one)
