Crew training cost is extremely high and no players would like to build and get a low tier ship now.
The devs should allow upgrade service for players to upgrade their old vetted ships with new blueprints. For a sensible naval country, it’s nonsense to jail your veterans in a cheap and old ships and not giving them the best weapons.
I’ll be fine with the lottery system if devs make this happen.
Also, has the fleetless issue solved yet?
