Hey, guys and girls! To lighten up among all these weighty, ongoing discussions about things that have serious and far-reaching consequences for the game at large (no irony intended), I thought to bring up something completely inconsequential: I miss the little aikido-practicing, knife-throwing cook on the deck of my Missouri! To those of you who may not know what I'm talking about (and will be thinking that I have now gone completely off the rocker), there was at one time a little animated figure of a cook, that would now and then appear - in port view - on the deck of the USN battleship Missouri. This figure represented the character of the badass cook from the movie Under Siege (1992), which was played by the actor Steven Seagal. As the collaboration between Wargaming and Mr Seagal came to an end, and his in-game commander persona changed name to John Doe, the little cook sadly also stopped working out on the deck of the Missouri. I'm not asking for the cook to be reintroduced, as such. I must assume that this would contravene whatever deal Wargaming made with Mr Seagal. But wouldn't it be fun to have other such animations - possibly but not necessarily relating to irl phenomena - appear in our ports from time to time? For one thing, we now have a number of special captains - anime and others - that could star in their own little animations. These could be tied to various silver or premium ships, or even switch between them, as circumstances might suggest. (And I might finally have Captain Paul Hogan get to grips with that koala on board my Perth, although what the outcome of that would be is anyone's guess.) I am not suggesting that this is made a priority in any way. I know that Wargaming is currently rather busy, what with the CV rework and all. But as they say, there is a time for everything... perhaps even for silly, pointless funimations?
