Most of my high-level captains have seen at least 3-4 free respecs by now already. The two for the 0.8.0 rework, plus CB season ones. So I'm pretty comfortable about where I have things now. Which is, so far as captain skills go, a pretty balanced selection. I don't think I have any captains with IHFE now, and very few with BFT.

I seems to me the respec his week is offered mostly to give people a chance to bail on IHFE if they want. I'm not sure what the AA changes are going to mean, and I have no idea really on how they would impact my choice of captain skills.

What are you guys thinking of doing?

Actually I'm more interested about the IFHE and HE penetration value changes that were mentioned in Dev Blog. Is it actually coming?

I'll probably reset just because.

That said, does anyone know if IFHE will still be viable on high tier UK DDs?

I am going to take the opportunity to play around with my CV captain skills. Since the Haku's 4 torp squadron have been removed, my Haku captain's skills are horribly outdated. Also will remove AR from all my CV captains. Last Gasp might need looking at too, since with the current AA system its usefulness is suspect.

As for the rest of my captains, I will just reset them anyway because why not. Never know when I will need to change my build or reassign the captain elsewhere.

Still in testing I believe. It might take a while since it is quite a big change. I could be wrong but afaik there will be another round of resets if the IFHE changes go through.

It would lower the pen to 21 or 22 mm for Jutland & Daring (depending on how WG would round the value). It would still be viable I think, I mean their current pen is only 24 mm with IFHE and still only works against DDs' and UK CLs' bow as well as the unarmored parts of the superstructure on most ships.

I am not sure about it, what exactly would IFHE change be ... the AA change, well it would had to be wait and see , it seems a rather major one , I would wager the involvement in manual operating the AA in principle is a good idea but it still lack targeting and it seems to be over working already over worked surface ships , especially if both aerial and surface attack combined together

I know its only for one week, and I already opted in, thanks.

It's just that outside of IFHE, I don't see any gameplay changes in 8.7 that mandate revising captain skill selection.

Now, when submarines drop that's a whole different story ...

It is mostly for CV captains and to play around with the AA changes.

The changes in 0.8.5 made skills like AR and Last Gasp a lot less useful for CVs, while 0.8.7 greatly buffed that 4-point aiming accuracy skill (previously it was not worth the 4 points).

Also like I said earlier, WG removed the 4 torp Hakuryu, which needed a rather specialised CV captain.

Yeah that's what confused me.
