Commander retraining dilemma

Hey captains!

I seem to be a little confused right now. Let me narrate relevant information in points:

1) Found a 10 point Russian commander in reserve. (Fully trained)

2) Assigned it to Budyonny. Selected option to retrain for free.

3) Sold the Budyonny for quick cash. Commander sent to reserve. (Still retraining)

4) Bought Derzki. Assigned retraining Budyonny Captain for free. Started retraining from scratch.

5) realized I have an Oktyabryskaya Revolutsiya (premium ship- USSR)

6) Assigned Budyonny Captain (which is now in Derzki) to oktyalutsiya.

7) realized that Captain is NOT retrained completely.

8) assigned previous oktyalutsiya Captain back into it.

9) realized that oktyalutsiya Captain needs to be retrained as well.

10)assigned 10 point Captain back to Derzki. Still reading from scratch.

 

I have learned the fact that premium ships can retrain completely for free.

 

Anything that I'm missing here or is it because of too much vodka?:cap_tea:

Valuable inputs are much appreciated.:Smile_honoring:

ok. Maybe just some clarification

 

- Every captain has a specialisation = one single ship he is trained for/in training for

  • assigning him to the ship he is specialised for --> gain Captain XP for progress or retraining
  • assigning him to another silvership he is not specialised for --You will have to retrain him with the 3 options (free, 200k silver , 500 Dubloons) everytime.
  • assigning him to a prem ship of the same nation --> no need to retrain him. You will be able to fully use all the skills even if he is in retraining mode for a silver ship. You will always gain captain XP for retraining or progress.

 

In conclusion:

You don't need a captain that is specialised on a prem ship to fully use it there. He just has to be of the same nation

If you retrain a captain for a silver ship, just put him on a prem ship to gain retraining XP without penalty.

This is why you never specialize a captain for a Premium ship

 

Example: You specialize a captain for Your favotite silver ship, lets say it is the German BB Bayern, adding New skills so he is also a specialist on BBs you can now move him around on all Your Premium German BBs for free .... especially useful for getting a 19 point captain faster and for later when when you get a 19 point captain to harvest that very useful Commander XP

 

Ps: There is no thing as to much vodka :fish_boom:

You don't need to re-train a captain for a premium ship, and when you put him in the Revolution from - was it Dersky? - that retraining you saw probably was that same Derskys re-training. You could have just used Revolution to finish it with no penalties to the captain

I appreciate your reply.:fish_aqua:

I remember clearly that the commander interface on

oktyalutsiya commander was orange,which suggests the fact that it is retraining with -50% reduction of skill. 

 

However, I tried assigning my trained Chapayev captain into oktyalutsiya today and it was instantly retrained, just as expected.

My conclusion: A retraining commander HAS to complete its retraining, irrespective of ship it is assigned to. 

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

it shows orange becuase it's retraining on the original ship, you can play it in the premium without the -50% penalty for easier retraining :cap_like:

No dilemma, just starting new stuff before finishing old stuff and not getting anywhere.

No dilemma, that's right. Just trying to save some time retraining. DD without last stand will not be much fun.
