Alter calculation of „Combined Skill" for crew

It does not make any sense to sort crew for base + max proficiency. This value is relevant nowhere in the game.

Please instead make „Combined“ = base+(min prof + max prof)/2

    Actually, that value (base+max prof) is relevant for determining if a card can successfully complete and/or crit a node in away missions, i.e. Episodes/Distress Calls and Cadet Challenges.

    That being said, I support the idea of changing the sort to use the base+average proficiency, because it would be more useful for Voyages while remaining (semi-)useful for nodes. 🖖

    Technically you are right. But with the limitations of searching this becomes irrelevant.

    You cannot filter for a skill AND a trait at the same time, so the ranking by Combined skill is (at least to me) useless for this task. And as it shows no sum you need to calculate the actual value yourself anyway.

    I rather screen through like 20 crew with the required trait for the skill than through 70 with the proper skill to eventually find one having the trait.

  • I support modification of the sorting in the crew screen. If they want to leave it alone for cadet missions and chapter nodes, that's fine. But when I'm in the crew screen, I want to see which crew will give me the best voyage boost. If I wanted to see who could help me pass a nose, I would go to that node and sort.

    That is a good point, also the crew sorting at a node could use a better sorting including (and in the best case in small letters showing) the proficiency values imo.

    It’s be nice if there were a toggle switch somewhere that could flip between average and maximum...come to think of it, adding the minimum shouldn’t take any more effort to add and could be interesting as well, albeit perhaps more for away missions and the gauntlet rather than voyages.
