In the "What's coming in 2017 video", I remember it saying that we would get new "Historical Commanders". When will those be coming out?

I second this question. Ever since I saw that, I've been looking forward to more "special" commanders.

Of course you would. I was just about to say "Why? So you can Play the Admiral Hipper, with the captain, Admiral Hipper, Admiral_Franz_von_Hipper?"

We heard you like to Hipper.  So we put Captain Hipper, in your Hipper, so you can Hipper while you Hipper

For the love of god Wargaming, please remove the atrocious Citadel hit noise

You can get rid of his lame boring drugged voice, but having him Captain your ship is giving you faster turrets and shell switching.. why would anyone want to get rid of those,

I hope each nation will get there own special Captain with special skills .. I use my Segal on Cleveland at the moment testing him out for the upcoming Vl ranked

I think a mod in Aslains mod pack will allow you to change it.

 

It sounds like sitting on the toilet reading the paper while recording. :trollface:

My votes are for:

 

1. Admiral Ackbar.  (Very Historical figure from a long long time ago)

2. Commander James Bond 

3. Captain William (Buck) Rogers and/or Colonel Wilma Deering (Not very historical, but would be fun)

To be honest, I just want an "Admiral Hipper" commander so I can play "Admiral_Franz_von_Hipper playing on an Admiral Hipper with Admiral Hipper as ship commander". :D

 

It would then become my sacred duty to scupper the Hipper skipper Hipper, by Hipper.

What are 'special skills" for Segal. I have him and I don't see any special addition of skills or anything.

i dont rememer the exact times but its faster turret rotation and faster switching from AP to HE,these skills work on any American ship , in a way its like having a 20 point Captain with Segal

I also want better Captains, such as:

 

Oscar the Grouch as a Russian DD Captain.

The Captain from the "Don't Do This" video.

The FISH from the "Don't Do This" Video.

Popeye. (Definitely a USN BB only Captain)

Captain Crunch. (in co-operation with the cereal company, with a redeemable coupon inside of every box for a free 10 point Captain)

Horatio Hornblower. (as a Royal Navy CL Captain)

Christopher Columbus. (as an Italian CA Captain)

Eric the Red (for the soon to be announced Scandanavian tech tree)


 

the list goes on forever. Captains who are just FUN.

how about it, WoW?
