Short answer: Yes!

 

Long answer: Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!

 

Elaborate answer: A captain with special perks that get activated as soon as you took enough damage, so he's a first class BB captain, because as a BB your job is to tank (and subsequently take) damage for your team.

Yes, he is. 

This captain is a bit on the OP side compared to other captains. 

Best part, you can put him in ANY ship and Benefit.

If you are not interested in any of the available coal ships at the moment, and you enjoy playing the Soviet BBs, yes, absolutely. He has saved my :etc_swear: quite a lot of times..

Get him only if you are sure to play many games in the respective nation. It's a lot of coal to spend.

 

He is worth it.

He is a good captain and his (really easily triggered) skillset makes him especially well suited for battleships. If you find yourself playing those boats regularly, I say go for it. :)

 

What I am asking myself (and sorry for hijacking your thread): Will Ovechkin make a return? I missed him when he was on sale, but he would make a fine captain for DDs or a CV, with his boosted SE skill.

 

Anyone knows something?

he was on sale once already, so I think he'll return once or twice a year ... I have the USN version, but I'd love to buy the other 2 ...

FTFY, while still being very conservative.

Ovechkin is bi-nation ... so you have ONE 19 point captain that you can use on 2 nations ships ... that there makes it unique and desirable ...

To me this dude feels almost mandatory on Kremlin if you play randoms in it. I think Ive used his perk 80% of my games by now.

I have him trained up on the Smolensk.    I've been in some games where the 20% dispersion to enemy shots has kicked in and the result was "how did I survive that" then I realized what had happened.

 

Keep in mind that the perks (? - the ones that are triggered rather than enhanced skills) don't work in clan battles.

Kuznetsow is tailor made for Kremlin, so you can experience the most bias per ship tonnage in this game

There are 3 different Ovechkin captains: RU, US and bi-national. You can get the US one from a collection, just buy the first container.

Broken indeed. But I still doubt he worths as much as a T10 ship (with coupon) 

 

I would go for him if I had all the ships I I'm interested.

Kuznetsov is overly broken as most of the latest russian content added into the game.

Put him in your Kremlin, or stalingrad, and make your broken ship uber broken.

 

But the question is, since his talents does not work in competitive environment,

how important randoms are for you.? how good a player you are? how can you use those talents for your advantage in randoms.

Because, 175K coal is a bloody rip off.. a theft if you ask me..

 

Just keep collecting it and get a thunderer to yourself..

a much much better investment..

No commander is worth 175k coal imo. Get the coal ships and if you have them all wait for the new releases.

I would say; Yes, if you play a lot of Russian BB's or Stalin in Randoms.

But personally i'd get Thunderer, Smolensk and Georgia first. When i have those i would take a look at Kuznetsov and Lütjens, but compared to the ship prices they are way too expensive. 80-100k would be a fair price, since Doe, Dunkirk etc. are 35k coal.
