The new commander has three talents:

  • Flame of the Revolution — Each time player gets a ribbon for capturing or helping to capture a control area, the chance of causing fire by main battery shells increases by 1%;
  • Fully armed — activates with obtaining the “Devastating strike” achievement and reduces reload time of ships armament by 10%;
  • Speed and endurance — Increases the ship’s maximum speed by 5% for each million of potential damage.

These talents do not work in Clan battles.

Besides that, this commander has one improved skill: “Survivability Expert”: increases the ship’s hit points by 400 per level, and the aircraft by 30.

 

 

 

You wot.:cap_wander:

 

Will the next captain get rudder buffs depending on how often you press A and D?

And no word on if or how you get him after the token event ends. Coal like they promised for Kuznetsov i hope?

Thank god, now i can rekt peeps in my JB easier.

 

Just need one for sped boust and rudder shift time for teh cruisers.

 

Although on a more serious note the second skill can be tricky if there are no cruisers about or if said cruisers have brains and dont sail broadside for the next 100 years.

From some guy on reddit who did some quick maths:

 

"Some numbers for you all with this captain.

-Kleber goes 61 knots with 2 million potential damage, and gets 7 salvos per MBRB with one dev strike.

-Bourgogne with one devstrike has a 22.18s reload and goes 42 knots with 2 million potential- 44 knots with 3 million. Sub 20 second reload with two devstrikes, which means four salvos per MBRB

-Republique with one devstrike has 17.7s reload. 12 second reload with 3 devstrikes. Nearly 40 knots with 3 million potential.

-Henri with 2 million potential goes 48.2 knots."

WG really missed a trick with this. 

 

I vote we rename the captain to Monsieur Jeremy Clarkson. Every 1 mil potential damage leads to a voice line of 'POOOOWWEEEEEER!', 'SPEED SOLVES EVERYTHING!' and....all kinds of velocity-related quotes. This of course accompanied to the Benny Hill theme as your 3000 tonne ship is speeding along as fast as a Tiger Moth aircraft.

 

If that sounds like a circus act - it's because it is. Really WG? 

 

*I know we were all worried about French DDs lacking smoke and being CV bait - but making them faster than hydrofoils probably isn't the best way to go about it.... Can you imagine trying to hit a DD-sized target hooning along at 60+knots?

1. Capping can be done in destroyers - wait, Frenchies have no smoke as cover for planes...

2. Dev strike is an unreliable to obtain achievment... 

3. Potential damage is easily to get in BBs, but only gives a speed bonus..

WG:  NTS with combat buffs failed, what do we do?

 

Ivan, WG Balans (TM) department: Add captains with special combat buffs only available in the NTS for special currency.

 

WG: Da, Ivan, as a reward we make you now biiiig CEO director of Balans Department.

 

InB4 Playerbase:etc_swear: when soviet captain, comrade Lenin introduced, having "Power of the People" talent, causing selected ship to infinitely respawn upon dying after taking at least 1 mio potential damage.

Instant Aigle captain. I mean if the tech tree doesn't have smoke this will be my only French DD anyway.

Wow, and the “regular” 2 special French captains already have the better if not the best bonus of all curent special captains.EM and AR are a good combo on any French BB.  Although “ fully Armed” laughs at any AR buff.

There is no "if" anymore.

No smoke, no heal, only speedboost to evade damage.

Something they also mentioned in the plans for 0.8.7 is that there will be containers giving a chance for a mission for De Grasse, Aigle, Gascogne, or Le Terrible. So you might end up with the last of those and dodge well enough with this captain in command that Yakkety Sax begins playing and Swordfish from an unfortunate bottom-tier Ark Royal can't catch up with you in a stern chase.

If by the time French DDs are launched carriers become rare, they could work. 

You can not evade planes with spedboost.

I'll be having fun playing them. Here are my stats on LeTerrible that also doesn't have smoke.

I do not see how you can cap anything in this DDs?

If they get dev strike as often as other DDs that is not an issue?

I will wait until it will be released as it is hard to say how French DDs will play out.

Maybe he is really a BB captain, especially with this health boost :D
