Could we have Dasha-alike commanders but with national voiceover please? :)

I absolutely love the concept of the Dasha commanders. I know it's just a visual and audio change, but I like it. However, personally I think the Dasha commanders have one very big disadvantage; they all speak Russian. As I do like my commanders to use the language of their nation, I only bought the Russian Dasha commander. But if there were commanders of a similar concept which would actually speak their nations language, then I'd probably buy them all.

I've always assumed Dasha is dubbed on all the English language videos, so presumably they could just ask the voice over artists?

I'd quite like that matter-of-fact tone. "This ship is on fire" with all the drama of someone asking for a Vanilla Latte.

The woman's voice of the English voice over is good for impersonating a mother. So her lines would rather be like "I told you not to go there! See what happens? Now you are on fire."

Well, I guess that could potentially be interesting, but I think it'd be more like another Jingles-captain with the humor, rather than the spirit of the Dasha captains. Although I have little clue what Dasha is actually saying, considering I don't speak Russian :P

Just wait for the introduction of Swiss naval forces... 

 

The voice over will most likely be like this... 

Now imagine that with dasha and you can't make unseen what you have seen (or rather imagined). :Smile_trollface:

 

Stupid jokes aside, think dasha audio will never change due to economical reasons :

 

See it that way : they only needed to create a unique voice over with her once, anything beyond that is just having a dude in the art department creating a new avatar and some code work to implement a new dasha variant into the game. Easy and low cost filler material for events. 

 

Unique voice lines for the different nations would either require them to do numerous takes with dasha herself not sounding super terrible (yet having a slight Russian accent) when it comes to some of the languages in the game, or finding and paying external female professionals from Russia to do voice overs that don't sound like you or me trying to speak Chinese. Which makes no economical sense for WG most likely. How much does such a work cost and how many dasha copies do they need to sell...

I'd still want a ship commander with an Arnold Schwarzenegger voice! :cap_cool:

If they ever release a captain like that, then my funds are turminated! :cap_win:

Btw there was a German streamer who had her voice in one of the voice packs which I thought sounded pretty neat. I mean there's several voiceovers that perhaps could be added pretty easily, depending on the quality of the recordings of course.

I have one or two Russian Dashas, I think, but didn't get any of the others because of the voice-over - I find it incongruous to have a - say - French Dasha talking Russian.

 

I'm aware this doesn't make much sense, given that I have a bloody enormous gorilla doing something unmentionable to the mast of one of my ships...

I have a Russian, French, and Pan Asian Dasha but I wouldn't trade her original language for a fake voiceover. It's better this way. 

 

If they're going for something new, they should just hire voice actors and make new commanders with different unique VOs as they did with Transformers.

More to the point, could we have an adult version of the girls from the Pin-up video?

 

 

I mean the dumbing-down for profit's sake seems complete, the "casual players" have completely taken over...

https://replayswows.com/replay/133333#stats

so the rest of us needs a reason to hang around and WG need  another avenue to further increase profits. Tiddies are the obvious way to go, it is a win-win if ever there was one.

Sooner or later it would end in a collab with all stars from pornhub :cap_haloween:
