How do you manage your captain?

Okay, so some people leave their high skill captain and recruit new ones every time they go up the trees. Seems logic since retraining 12+ captain isn't easy, And being a dd without SA sucks. But again a stock high tier ship + low skill captain = nightmare. So, what should I do? I think captain retraining should be easier..

Buy a premium ship that doesn't get affected much by diverse captain skills

Assign captain to new stock ship

Halve retraining exp with credits

Sail premium ship with the retraining captain yielding 0% skill penalty

I did some calculation after posting a thread about having new captain for Amagi. Apparently, retraining is still faster up to 16 pt captain. And even when your captain is under retraining, you get half of the benefits (well binary skills like situation awareness don't work at all). You can also finish retraining in a premium ship. That is what most people do.

the whole point is for situational awareness to work, though.

I don't play DD, but it must be hard for DD players I believe. Not having situation awareness in a DD is like.....

in a sense i find driving tier 9/10 with a captain with at level 10 is fine just you sometimes get annoyed over those with concealment expert

 

at tier 8 its a mix between more higher and mid level captains

if you dont have doubloon for :

- captain slots

- ship slots

etc.

you probably would want to move your main captain towards the top tier ship every time you move up (usually starting with captain at tier 5/6 when your progress and grinding takes longer)

 

being a DD without SA sucks well yes when you move ur captain to new ships that can't be help.

doubloon is ok but i only recommend doubloon if you could afford it or else just use credits

 

for me i just kept every captain on their ships and keep their ships intact or just get more captain slots if i need credits(which i sell my ships) in an emergency

my only transfer is changing my atago captain to zao

and yes i used doubloon so my current atago is empty (lel :V)

US$ 2.97 for 500 doubloons, tier VI to X (x4) = $11.88 vs $40 premium ship and switching captains, best to pay the dam money. Anyway someone has to pay for the new German battleship line.

easy solution, sell the high tier captain and start all with low tier so that way you dont have this dilemma at all!!

 

*troll over*

 

Dubloons, easiest way but make sure you want to keep that ship, or move the captain to the ship you want to keep. No point paying them to go into a ship you hate and want to grind through.
