Captain slots in consumables containers.

Dear WG,

 

Twice in recent days, I've received 4 extra captain spaces in what were supposed to be containers of consumables. I now have a grand total of 44 captain spaces,  41 of which are vacant, and most likely will remain so.

 

Could you please stop handing these out in containers? With 41 spare places, they are superfluous to me,  and  I would have much preferred the consumables.  There must be a better way of doing this - maybe silver for captain's spaces, or something like that.

 

Regards. :Smile_Default:

Only a 157 spare here out of a total of 176 slots. It is annoying getting 4 extra slots in reserve from containers, I just hope they have a limit on the number you can have.

Also have a lot of spares - received some out of containers.

 

 

I remember the times I had my barrack ship full on purpose so any addition in captains via missions n stuff would automatically come with a free slot.

 

 

Even more so WG still hasnt figured out a way to let me dismiss the countless duplicate anime captains. I dont have the good one like 15 or 10 pts - but I have a ton of 0-3 pts one .......

I was recently able to dismiss mine, just after 0.7.2 came out. You might want to check if you can.

But you still can't get rid of the ships, if you wanted to, you still have to hide them instead which, while it may be no issue for some, seriously annoys me and my OCD-ism :Smile_teethhappy:

I may not be able to beat the amount of free slots I only have 190 in total with 16 used up, but my clan leader has 23k games and has 500 slots, with around 250 free so XD

The type of container you choose only grants you one (the first) guaranteed item of this sort. Spare captain slots can appear in every container, no matter if you choose signals, consumables or credits. Not sure about TYL, though.

Yes, I'm aware they can appear - they have appeared twice in the last few days, as per my opening post. The crux of the matter is that they are not required by most people ( see all who have answered above ) and they take the place in the container of consumables that actually are useful ( and that actually are consumables, which captains slots are not ).

No, WG should not stop giving this extra space!

 

I have only 16 free slots and about 190 ore occupied!

If I can buy a slot for gold, why can't I change back a slot for the gold? Oh yeah, I know why.

I posted the same thing in the "suggestions" thread last night. Apparently people from WG go there to see what we're suggesting :Smile_teethhappy:

 

We know this because of the acknowledgements and comments they leave in response

They could add the captain slots (amongst other things) to the inventory with the option to sell them for silver , but they don't seem willing to do it.

And I thought 5 ramming flags already was "striking gold". :Smile_trollface::Smile_veryhappy:

 

I wonder if there is a "improved variant" in TYL - you know not supercontainer-like but TYL sometimes has 2 rarer camos which you cant buy for creds -> 10-20 slots? :Smile_hiding:

Yeah but those other things you can sell are worth jack ....... I think people with 200 reserve slots _might_ end up being able to afford ~150 consumables ....... _if_ those consumables are on discount. :Smile_trollface:

Yes, more free port slots would be nice. I think I've had one or two over the last year, but they are few and far between. :Smile_Default:

It would be a good option if we could sell these captain slots. I even have more than enough ship slots from the containers.

Make 50 captain slots + 100k silver > 1 ship slot exchange :cap_book:

Looks as a good trade to me :Smile_Default:

 

Edit: personaly i'd trade the 50 slots + 1mil silver for 1 port slot just to get rid of all the reserve slots :Smile_smile:

Just for the record, today I received a ship slot in my first container. It must be a yin-yang thing. :Smile_great:
