I noticed that the admirals have a lot of their skills locked and you need to level up to unlock them. Doing Skirmish vs AI does not grant xp, unlike in the original BFG:A where you could level skirmish admirals. Leveling up your level to unlock skills, shouldn't that also be available through skirmish?
Are you seriously enforcing PvP to unlock admiral skills? That is going to alienate a lot of players like me that prefer PvE over PvP. I know PvP lacked players in the original, but forcing players to play PvP for unlocks is not the way to go.
(Leveling up Skirmishing admirals and creating unique fleets for them were one of my favorite things in BFG:A, sad that is gone. It gave the game a soul. I really miss naming my ships and customizing them. Must say this feels simplified...)
