Gives you an ingame mission for each of the two The Ring contest commanders. Both are the same: Earn 10k base exp over any number of battles.

 

They're only three point captains, but I guess it's at least worth spending some elite captain exp to get Jingles up to snuff as a British CA skipper when they're released.

So, they're restricted to RN and RU ships respectively? Bummer. 

 

Still, glad to finally have Jingles as captain.

(If the man himself is anything to go by, that's not even a joke by the way - he will actually be calling out the wrong class of ship when one is spotted or destroyed)

No bonuses eh, oh well.... I just hope his voice recording is okish, if it's anything close to seagull's quality, he's gonna go straight in the brig. :Smile_smile:

He does misidentify ship classes.  He insisted on this and had a hard time convincing WG about it.  Source :Mingles with Jingles.

He does indeed. Wish they'd kept his voice more normal tho.

Spoiler

the important question is which ship will you put him in?

 

it would somehow feel wrong to put him in your best ship so maybe whichever is the most fun / the one you play for laughs ?

Probably ending on the Ark Royal with one of the unsinkable Sam camouflages.. He will feel right at home with the kitty on deck

I'd like a Flamu Captain. Every button pressed would result in a "**** off".

Don't forget the maniacal laughter and wordless full on tilt-mode. ^^

He would also need an auto stat-shame feature for the full experience.

I am really looking forward to having a captain Jingles, as for what ship probably train him up in the Belfast ready for the heavy cruisers

The sad thing will be you can guarantee some people will complain about that feature even though it's why a lot of us find him fun for being "old and crap"

"enemy submarine sighted"

 

Sinking an enemy DD Jingles said "we sank an allied cruiser"

Sinking an enemy BB Jingles said " we sank an allied Battleship"

 

 

Sorry, i think this is stupid.

But as he's known for misidentifying and if he insisted to have it this way...

At least it's better than hearing the Spanish voiceover (for Nueve de Julio I suppose, since I'm using national+) when a Yueyang asks for something.

 

I got him this evening but haven't tried him out (still deciding where to put him). In any case, it was what Jingles and his followers wished for: him being himself, not someone else. The question is, are there also "mistakes" in the quick commands? I guess not: that would be too much, and confusing for other players.

 

Salute.

You think it is stupid, I, for one actually like that Jingles managed to get in that infamous trait of his.

Here's a thought? Don't like it? Don't use him, he's a RN captain with no skill bonuses and the only unique thing about him is the voiceover.

One bonus is that you can have his voice over for all battles, not just the ones where he is in the ship you are playing.

 

I have a lot of Dasha Perova commanders and I've been unable to turn her voice off without using a mod.
