We miss more specialized nation or class captains. 

 

Except Ovi we do not have CV captain (he is also dd ones) we miss panasian ones etc etc

 

Do we have any info about new ones? Kuznetcov for RU?

That is power creep.

Consider that newer player may have a hard time getting these captains.

But there are two panasian special commanders?!

 

There are only two upcoming commanders known:

  1. Legendary russian commander Nikolay Kuznetzov and
  2. Special british commander The Mighty Jingles.

 

No further information about other commanders. In the "sense of balance" we miss for the main nations two special japanese commanders, and a german and a british legendary commander. But when or even if they will come, does only Wargaming know.

I think they already stated that Jingles won't be special (as in have special skills = be actually useful).

Jingles himself stated that he would like to see having his commander having improved skills. Thus, this captain would be a special commander. But he will not have perks like a legendary commander. And I cannot really imagine that Wargaming would make the effort of unique voiceovers and a proper picture of a commander without any benefits like one or two improved skills (like the Kappa or West Captain)!

 

Wargaming itself never stated anything regarding the captain itself, besides the picture:

He should call all the ships by the wrong name, and if you can correct him, he gets an accuracy boost :Smile-_tongue:

I guess he will call out wrong shipnames all match and every time you score a citadel it  you hear "Thats a paddeling"! And when you get a kill its "Back to the saltmine, minion"!

Like, if you dish out a 'paddling' you get colored smoke tracers, such stuff.

Or (actually somewhat useful) if you ram an island you get twice reverse speed.

It's Jingles, not Notser.

True, but Jingles usually 'pulls a Notser', and then he goes "back back back"....

It still is called "pulling a Notser", not "pulling a Jingles".

Yeah is. Even Jingles calls it that. 

His usual reaction.... Oh sh!t sh!t sh!t sh!t sh!t get moving... is why I suggest 'double reverse speed'.

 

If the captain were Notser, well, then I;d think something like ' extra disopersion for shells fired at you', or something.

Maybe even health gain or reload buff for ramming islands.

Yeah, let me bump my island in my Cleveland, so I can get a reload buff. Totally not absurd and broken to the point it puts Kuznetsov to shame...

Since when did that stop WG... :Smile_trollface:

Anyway indeed he's not Notser (also the skills shouldn't be usueful, more like 'meme-worthy').

Red-white-blue tracers on the shells for any RN BB, or something.

Smokepuffs from ships having the shape of the Queen?

 

Here's an idea: he gets steering boost 200% but only to the left.

Then if you crash into something, it changes in 'to the right'.

Isn't that Jingles special skill? "Not being useful"?

If you get kraken, high caliber and confederate in a match - nothing special happens.
