Are you expecting a Japanese teenaged girl to have the voice of a middle aged British sea captain?

She is an anime captain. They talk Japanese. You can turn it off, if you want.

Where is the option ? I already selected german ( deutsch ).

Personally I think WG missed a trick here. I want my HMS Hood to be piloted by this fellow.

My hipper captain is one of those teenager with a voice of an old sea wolf.

Well the OPs issue itself has been resolved, but prehaps there is a market for a Japanese woman speaking English as an alternative voice over.

There is no problem, she is from a Japanese game, that's why she speaks Japanese.

 

One of the better sounding anime voice overs too..

Ah, that brings back childhood memories.

Think I still got some of the toys at my old folk's place.

 

As for Ms. Hood: she's from the Azur Lane collaboration, and would as such speak either Chinese or Japanese (Azur Lane being a Chinese game, but the collab likely being from the Japanese publisher/localisation).

Haven't bothered to listen to her voice yet though, since I'm quite happy with Ms Kongou's voice.

Ms Hood does indeed speak Japanese and the voice actress has a pleasing voice, randomly my Mrs has banned me from using Takao with speakers as she sounds like someone she hated back in high school. Still it's great we get quite some variety in the voice actresses.

I would love to get full English voice acting for the AL captains but considering even the international version of the App has them speaking Japanese with subtitles (IIRC) I doubt it will happen.

Voiceover is Japanese even in the CN client.

Most likely because that's the "industry standard" and having actual Chinese voice acting would likely make the game less popular even within China itself ironically enough.

The fact that there is more than one version of Chinese may have something to do with that, at least Japanese is all one language..

The real bug with animecaptains is that my animecaptains will not be heard on other players ears. WG, please fix.

Erm no - it's called common decency. 

 

I play WOWS to unwind, to relax. The last thing I need is some hyperactive chipmunk screaming and shrieking (in a language I know not one word of) every time somebody presses the quick comms commands.

True, even i dont care much for the voices myself.

 

In the shows im fine with it, because its what i expect, in the game....umm nah.

 

I don't mind if others want to have the voices on for themselves, peeps should be given a choice after all.

 

Also technically hood would be like...over 100 years old?

 

@El2aZeR whats wrong with chinese voices (jus asking).

Nothing much tbh, but Japanese voice actors are more popular and is generally accepted as the industry standard for "anime games". Deviating inevitably means less popularity.

Imagine if WoWs was available only in Russian e.g. when it is worldwide accepted that video games should have at least an English localization.

I see, ill have a listen to the chinese voices too see how they compare to the japanese ones.

True, which is the reason why kancolle isn't as wildly popular as azur lane (dunno if it would be even if english translations came through).
