How long to get 15 points Captain?!

So, I have been plying since...March?! April?!

and since I have a life and WoWs is a way to relive stress (It's actually the other way around),

so I only play 2-8 games per day, sometimes less, more on weekends 

and there are tons of lines to grinds at the same times

like many I have been using mostly the same captain down the line

but since I've been switching ships and different nations and neglected the higher tier ships, the most I have is 13 points captain

and playing higher tiers are not much fun when you're always losing

i have only purchased prem ships only recently but not playing them much

 

so, how long do it actually took you guys to get 15 points captain?!

normally. without any flag boost, u will get :

  • 10 point captain (for the 4th skill) around mid tier 6 (roughly 100k-ish exp)
  • 15 point captain (for the 5th row skill) around late tier 9/almost reach tier 10 (600k-ish exp)

 

yeah somewhere around that..

if u spam zulu hotel(confederate flag).

u can get it at early tier 9 stage. (my benson short of 40k exp after i can research fletcher)

 

with "premium time + zulu hotel + drakon flag + equalspeed charlie london". u can get roughly 8k-15k commander exp each match. so u need around 60 match for that.

It takes approximately 476900XP to get to a 15 point captain.  A 13 point captain takes 229900 XP. 2-8 games a day or less is going to be a loooooooong time...................

 

 

 that's double the points that i have!!! :ohmy:

not only double but more than that.

 

premum time gave 1.5x multiplier to base exp that will serve as the count base for other modifier.

and dragon flag gave not only 2x, but 333% of that exp

 

i i can aask, wht ship you want to put the 15 commander ?

While the early grinds are relatively easy the higher captain skills are exponentially harder.   Partly designed either make you a very patient person or invest in premium time/cao/signals/prem ships.

I'm yet to have any of my captains reach 15 points and that's after 2,350 battles. If the new skill system goes ahead as leaked, however, there won't be any more 5-point skills - so a mere 10-point captain will have access to the final tier of skills.

also if u dont use doubloon for retraining, it will make it harder.....

Buy a premium ship. Buy premium time. Buy flags (if you are not earning enough). Buy doubloons and retrain your captain each time you level up a ship. See, those are just 4 ways that you can level up your captain faster in this Pay2Win Free2Play game. Also make sure that you get your daily win bonus. 5 ways that come to mind.

Don't stress... if/when the captain tree revamp comes there will have to be a skill wipe and some of the T5 captain skills that you have set your sights on will be easier to reach.

i am not spending much money in this game either. IIRC. i only spend around $10 for doubloon.

my progress so far :

15 pointer : benson, amagi, north carolina, nachi, bismarck

16 pointer : hindy, dm, zao, yamato, khabarovsk

17 pointer : shimakaze. minekaze

 

well i've been playing over 8k battle for that tough

With full flags and premium account on a premium ship (which you can play well, say 65% WR and 1.6k WTR), about 30 battles.

This is the WG business model. I think it is brilliant (not being sarcastic).

If you have HUGE amounts of time (and therefore presumably no money) grind away.

Otherwise buy premium +Dragon + Atago, you'll be there in no time.

If you have better things to do with your time/money than you're on the wrong web page!

looks like i have long way to go to get my 1st 15 pts captain 

 

i'm not spending money to get 15 pts cpt!!!:red_button:

it's not THAT necessary

 

and 300 battles sounds like reasonable
