I would like to note that I have played this game long enough (RA5 now) and my observations on the skill system are made after considerable exposure.
Having tested and used various configurations on my ships and experimented with different skills for both ground and space, I still find it very diffcult to associate training slot with them.
Some skills of course are very easy to place like photonic shockwave or jam sensors, but others can be a lot harder to place. So I would like to request for tooltips in game that dont just give examples but list the full list of items affectd by a skill. I see alot of people struggling with this and it would be a great help to plan more effectivelly if this was displayed at all times.
I agree - I mean it's nice that the skills give a general indication of what they affect, but a full list would be great. Some sort of screen that shows the abilities you and your crew have and what they would be with the skill advancement applied would be awesome.
