Hi everyone,

I had a search around but couldn't find an answer to this question. Apologies if it has been asked before though.

Does the penalty for transferring a captain between ships exist for ships that the captain has already been on? I.e if I have a captain on the Emerald and then transfer him to the Leander but keep the Emerald, can I transfer him back to the Emerald without penalty? 

Or does it not work for non-prem ships? (Even if the captain had a heap of games on the Emerald previously) 

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

The answer is no.  You can swap them between ships for free but must retrain them each time (or pay to retrain them without penalty).  This does not apply to premium ships of that line

Thought that might be the case. A bit of a bummer really and odd as well, given I could transfer him onto something like a Warspite with no penalty yet can transfer him back onto a ship that he has served on heaps before.

Might be a consideration for future enhancements by WG. Could maybe the ability to transfer a captain back onto a ship he has served on for X number of games with a reduced penalty? Or a captain can be transferred between the last 3 ships he served on with a reduced penalty? Or even specialise captains to a particular line? I.e. a RNCL captain may be different to a RNBB captain? 

Just some food for thought I guess.

I doubt they will ever do that as the retraining provisions are an income source.   Occasionally you get free skill resets when there are big mechanic changes in the game (CV rework offered two resets) and free skill resets are given to CB participants.

Fair point. Maybe add it as a perk for a premium account? I'd be more inclined to buy a weekend of premium if I could swap a captain between ships easier for a few days to skill him up. But that is just me, I'm not sure how useful others would find that or what the volume of users using doubloons to remove the transfer penalty is.

 

Thanks for your answers RalphTheTheatreCat, much appreciated 🙂
