We aren't talking about players at that level. The system works great for players already getting 5+ skill points. But, if you aren't getting 5+ skill points. It's taking LONGER. Please step out of your head for a few seconds and see that we are talking about players at levels 1 through 20 (possibly more). The old system guaranteed 5 skill points. The new system only gets you 1+ skill point. How are you not getting this?
I don't see this as a problem, that's all.
A new player will simply see exploring as something they need a bit higher crew for.
Crew skills are much much faster now, whether you realize it or not.
There is no more getting stuck training for years like there was. Now anyone and everyone can do it in under 3 months! I would stop complaining. At least give it a chance.
I'm not complaining. I'm just pointing out that brand new players are going to get screwed in this. But, sure don't read what we are saying. Keep thinking we view this change as bad (which I don't.. but, only for BRAND NEW PLAYERS!!!).
 It's not only for bad new players either. If you fired your crew. Oh boy. That would hurt big time. Old system of crew training at the start equaled less than 6 minutes to get 5 skill points. Under the new system. A strength of 50 to 60 is anywhere between 6 to 8 skill points.. in 4+ hours.
In four hours under the old system you could get close to 40+ skill points. Under the new system? Four hours equals 6 to 8 skill points?
40+ skill points... or 6 to 8 skill points. I'll take the Old system for 1,000.
Even at the highest amount. Only 20 skill points... And doesn't the time it takes to upgrade arts also increase with the level (strength) of the arts? So.. longer than 4 hours? How about 32 hours for 20 skill points? How many skill points could someone get in 32 hours of hiring a new crew in the old system?
