Anyone knows if WG stated somewhere that there will be campaigns for legendary captains except for the ones that already have ?

It's asked repeatedly during live streams.

There are currently no plans for new campaigns.

 

Do you know if they said how we are going to get Günther Lütjens? Did they mentioned anything about him?

Official explanation: "Campaigns come with their own set of difficulties, like completing a mission you haven't selected, and the spreadsheets show that not a lot of players are currently working on the campaigns".

Real explanation: "A Campaign works, but is hard to monetize. A directive like done for Kuznetsov & Auboyneau, where one virtually has to buy lootboxes to get enough tokens brings in more money" 

 

On the anniversary-stream, they announced a new legendary Italian commander. Given the tremendous backlash WG got about the ridiculous requirements & paywalling of Kuznetsov & Auboyneau, it's not going to be a purchasable commander with tokens (as was the case with these two), but it will be a reward for a collection, with items that can be earned by collecting containers... by completing missions in a directive (and only via there, not completable via daily containers or other means), so again time-limited and with lootcrates. Either way, you're going to get prodded in the pooper anyhow.

@MrFingers the time dependent directive is indeed a sneaky way to get $$ but WG needs money for this game.

What I do not understand is why those captains have to be locked forever for those who did not play the game in that period (Sorry WG but Summer >>>>>>>>>>>>>> WoWs), and for those who do not want to pay for lootboxes or for the f2p community. The campaign does not need to be easy, for someone casual will take months (maybe more than a year) to get that captain.

It seems to me that WG seems to not care at all for these categories.

WG can maybe investigate sustainable and worthwhile methods of monetizing WoWS, instead of hiding everything in crates, which is the easy & lazy (and sick) way.

 

And indeed, WG stopped catering for the casual players in the end of 2018, when their events went from "challenging but entirely doable even when strapped for time or not being able to be in the game each and every day" to "yeah, if you want stuff, WoWS now became your (second) job... Oh, or you can pay to buy lootboxes to ease up on the time/grind required".
