Kuznetsov if you play russian ships and want the most OP commander in the game.

 

Lutjens if you dont care about OP and german secondaries and Hindenburg is your thing (i dont have him)

 

Dont bother with Cunningham (i have him, not worth the coal).

 

Yoshino will get you a supercontainer each year for the anniversary. Otherwise it has a very one dimensional playstyle.

 

Or save the coal for better times?

For me it is ships before captain gimmicks.

 

That said i have them all. Only Lutjesn and Kutzenetsov do noticeable things often enough that i see them in game, apart from some fireworks.

Lutjens may become better with the captain rework but right now Kutnetzov is the best.

 

I only bought Kutnetzov as I had nearly 500,000 coal. Yoshino is good but not amazing. So many cruisers do long range HE spam.

You could wait for another coal ship to come.

I don't have Kutnetzov but I'm currently saving us for him as his perks seem the most useful. However in my experience at the very least Lutjens is more useful than Cunningham just there are more opportunities to use the perks with him.

 

Still for me I think the Yoshino would be more tempting than a captain, just because with a new ship comes the fun of trying it out and the Yoshino is at least in my opinion a pretty fun ship.

Lutjens is useful in just about anything that floats.  Very easy to activate talents.

Easily my favourite legendary captain. I find Cunningham's talents harder to activate.

Kus I don't own, but looks good on paper for both dds and bbs. Free, guaranteed, emergency heal. What's not to like?

Kusnetsov and its not even close, most OP captain atm. Ability to heal and repair make him quite unfair. If you dont have RU ships, buy Kusnetsov and gring them, perfect captain for Kremlin, Petropavlovsk and Stalin.

Kuztnetov for BB and Alexander Nevsky and can work with stalingrad and kronshtadt. Lutjens IS FANTASTIC:he works on cruisers,on cv and even on destroyers(z-46 with him on command and a full gun built is a terror to fight against). Cunnigham is decent but I prefer Lutjens.

Terror to what exacly? Yugumo? Z-46 is quite bad at hunting DDs with two rear turrets. Im not talkimg about hydro-smoke gimmick just regular dd fighting.

A chart LWM published pointed out that AP penetrations always do more damage then HE penetrations, together with the fact 300 mm will always overmatch 19 mm ( superstructure of all ships ) at any angle just like HE of sufficient caliber would always penetrate that at any angle. On top of that AP still does considerable more damage to damage saturated area's then HE would, as HE is then reduced to just 16 % of it's shell damage.

 

Those guns need 52mm effective armor to fuze which 19mm does not provide unless at extreme angles, leading to overpens.

AP shells are also subject to damage saturation.

 

Educate yourself about basic game mechanics before attempting to provide false information.

Kuznetsov or wait for a while.   Some of the steel ships (e.g. Flint) will be released 'at some stage' for coal so they may be worth waiting for or there could be other ships coming out for coal.

 

I'm sitting on around 260K coal at the moment for such a situation.

If the commander skill changes come as planned, the value of special commanders will increase, as you will be able to use them on different classes simultaneously. That said, Kuznetsov is already a safe bet in the value for (ingame) currency department.

That of course depends on what Wargaming will do with their enhanced skills

 

Kuznetzov has improved jack of all trades, that skill doesn't exist in the planned rework. Same issue with the Dunkirks.

 

Perhaps a buffed emergency consumables? 10% instead of 5% reduced reload of Damcon and repair party?

 

The activated talents have no reason to change in the rework as they work outside of the skills.

 

Of course the talents are more important then the enhanced skills so if they changed those  you would hope for refunds

Do you use Soviet ships a lot, especially BB or cruisers? Kuznetsov.

 

Do you use RN BBs or CAs a lot? Cunningham.

 

Do you really love German high tier ships? Lütjens.

 

If neither of that is the case, Yoshino. Personally, Yoshino is great, but I don't play any Soviet high tiers much except for Nevsky, Grozo and Tashkent, all which aren't the prime meme material for Kuznetsov (still great captain for any Soviet ship). ABC is cool for the likes of Conq and Goliath (extra superheal!) and I might get him at some point. Lütjens is minor improvement for whatever German ship you put him on. Less influential than the others. I don't care anywhere near enough to get him.

Tank built Kuznetsov. Bam, main specialisation Petro or Kremlin (even can be on Nevsky really), can helm Pyotr Bagration, Moskva, Kronshtadt, Stalingrad, Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya, Lenin, Sovietskaya Rossiya, Imperator Nikolai and Slava too without issues.

the most broken captain in the game. his best talent gets activated without any need of you doing something. 

kusnetsov. if you can afford him, you should get him. 100%.

Much more then half I reckon, the 90% of BBs either snipe from back lines and wont take enough damage through the match to proc it or yolo in the cap and get focused and usually torped to death within 4 minutes so Kuznetsov wont have time to do his magic nor will it change much...
