So, I was playing my 13 105 with food, like I always do on most tier10s.  But I got set on fire twice  and then I remembered there are certain  directives that boost crew skills. So i looked and indeed, at the bottom,  a directive that gives all crew members 100% firefighting! 

And the price? 2 bonds! 2 bonds! Thats cheap af , even if you only have 500 bonds, thats like 1000 battles.

So now I  have firefighting on my crew and wont burn as much anymore.  

But what I am wondering now is, why would you take firefightign at all anymore? It take up 1 skill on each crewmember that could be used much better, or you could pay 2 bonds/game. 

As I type this, I am reseting some tier10s I had firefighting on to use other crew skills and the directive.
 

What do you think?  Is the firefighting skill now useless? Is the directive too cheap?

Yeah FF is pretty much obsolete now.

We did testing with it. Apparently it doesn't do anything if you dont have firefighting skill on crew. 

 

It seems to work for 1-99% -> 100%

And 100% -> 150%

 

Needs more testing, but after about 20 tests we came to such conclusion.

 

However the 6th sense directive works even if you don't have the skill trained.

af never ever used it, but must work similar to repair and camo skills

Yeah firstly you need firefighting on your crew already in order for it to work. You also remove your opportunity to use other more useful directives.

oh, so you need FF on a crew member for it to boost it to 100%? And then it only does that on that one crewmember?

 

If that is the case, its pretty useless.

Would love some more tests, because that information is very important to how you use it.
