    Thank you WG for making this possible! Not a hater, just not a fan. Now my personal file contains only those captains I need or want.
  2. When viewing the latest development diaries, French Battleships, at around the 5.27 mark I noted that the in game image for the new French Captain was modeled by a WG worker. This comment gave me pause, and thought, why not have an image/model of a player in game, perhaps as a winner from a contest held by WG? (either male or female) This could be for a unique commander, or even a standard reward captain for an event? The contest itself I think should be up to others or WG, as I was leaning towards meme's or artistic images to submit. Thoughts? Do you think players would like a competition where their face could up in game as an image?
  3. Maybe I'll ascend the line after all....
  4. Missing one german captain portrait

    Ok,so since the update 0.615 this german portrait is missing. I don't know if is only to me o it is for everyhone, happens that i could'nt find it when i try to recruit a new german captain. Also i had a captain whit this portrait and it was change for another. That's the thing. Thanks. PD: I know that the image is not the best...
  5. Ok, so I'm wanting some opinions from veterans here about some of the options and why they're chosen. Let's start off by saying everyone in my reserve is getting reset....yay! We can change them as needed down the road... Let's assume a 10pt Captain at the helm. Definitely include caveats such as "with DD's I'll grab Survivability but with BB's I have to grab Superintendant" For me...I'm been neglecting Priority Target for most builds...I'm paranoid I guess! I assume when I see Detected that there's incoming...so I mostly pick Preventive Maintenance. That 30% reduction to my engines/props and main damage modules from being knocked out seems to be a no-brainer. I seem to be in the minority here at the first skill choice (especially when it seems Preventive Maintenance seems to work in synergy so well with Last Stand). Any input here is so helpful! What skills belong together (Expert Rear Gunner and Evasive Maneuver, but was told to drop the last because I couldn't re-strike as fast. Hmm...why not let my CV returns float a bit and give a huge HP bonus as my AA ships and fighters roll in...?) Thanks! <S!> War
  6. So...The Karlsruhe. Why the Hate?

    Relatively new here, and fairly often getting the advice to power past the Karlsruhe. Been told to dump the 'garbageruhe' and move on to the Konigsberg quickly. I'm actually having fun with the ship; not the best at it...learning now that HE spam definitely isn't it's forte' like other cruisers I've tried. Its AP seems pretty potent, and the torps are usable. Why does it get such a bad rep? Any suggestions about effectively using the ship? Just respec'd out of DE with my captain since I found myself loading HE less often...what captain skills would you put a priority on? I'm currently running Priority Target, Last Stand and Vigilance (TB's just laugh at my AA defense, so I hoped that would give me extra maneuver time against torps...the Koni seems to fix AA defense on the B hull upgrade) with my 7-pt captain - about to have a free couple of points there in another few battles. I want to get proficient in the ship before facing the possibility of tier VII's in battles when I evolve to the Konigsberg. Thanks in advance for the help feedback! ~War~
  7. I need a few British names.

    So its probably not a secret that I'm working on another AU story for a ship. I've already involved the community in writing this, but I want to have a little bit more of the community's hand in this. I'm looking for a name for this battleship and a name for two of her captains. Please, I require proper and serious names. Silly names will not be considered. A brief description about the captain's personalty will also be appreciated. Also if the name for the ship has a meaning behind it list it, but it is not as necessary... I want to call her Sandwich but that's kinda too cutesy. Plus that's already a name for a another ship in the works, Opp spoilers! If I pick yours I'll give you a shout out when I post the AU. May the best names win! :3
  8. I had fun with the free rental of the Ohotnik. I reassigned my highest-ranking commander from another Russian ship. The rental expired and my best Russian captain has completely disappeared along with the Okhotnik. What's up with this?
  9. Yamamoto Typo

    Well... that's a bit underwhelming.
  10. They need to enable captains to transfer back to lower ships they have served on and were trained on without a retraining period, or at least a shorter one. It sucks to have a high tier captain you can't use in ranked or something because retraining them would take forever, or in my case when you have a high tier ship but would like to play at a lower one for fun and credits when too costly, but for an 18 point captain takes forever. Even if not for all ships in captain's past, letting them retain knowledge of a few you select seems reasonable, and realistic since I doubt a captain forgets their old ship
  11. Captain

    Here is my 2nd highest rank captain just got yesterday night. Thank you all for the teamwork (Friend or Foe)... since CBT so far. What next? Here are my perks on him
  12. Captain

    Here is my 1st highest rank captain just got tonight. Thank you all for the teamwork (Friend or Foe)... since CBT so far. Here are my perks on him
  13. Isn't Hood a premium? Shouldn't I just be able to drop captains in and out, no problem? I do it in all my other premiums....
  14. HSF Graf Spee

    So. I disabled the HSF skins and it changed the 6-point captain to a regular German, but when I use him in battle (regardless of the voice settings) the alerts are still the high-pitched squeals of the anime! Can I disable this and still use the special captain or am I stuck with the crazy, immersion-breaking squeaks? Thank you!
  15. Okay I am trying to get the most out of my Enterprise Captain Build I have 19 pts included is a screen print of what it looks like. I have watch Fara's Vids and wanted other opinions on what I can do to make this just a bit stronger. Understand I am not a great CV guy, I have my good and bad games. I am AVERAGE at best, but want to do my best too. Thank You for Your Suggestions. You can see I have: Priority Target Aircraft Servicing Expert Dog Fighting Expert Torpedo Acceleration Torpedo Armament Expertise BFT AFT Air Supremecy
  16. In the past when I hit a quick command or there was an alert, a ship captain would speak the native language of their ship. At some point that went away for me. There are 2 voice options in the audio menu. (going off memory here) Once is voice (set to standard) the 2nd is modification but those are all different countries and there is no additional "standard" or "native" or "Mod off" setting in that menu. All my captain's voices are in English. What am I doing wrong here? Thanks for your time!
  17. Future Unique Commanders

    So now that we have 3 unique commanders in the game already, for the US, Japan, and the UK, which historic naval figures may potentially become future unique commanders for any of the other nations that are currently in the game? For the record, you may name as many people as you like, but just keep it relevant to their respective nations and don't think about coming up with potential unique commanders for nations that already have one since I feel like it'll be limited to one unique commander per nation, and it is only fair if we give the other nations a chance and not have an overflow of either US, Japanese, or British captains since wargaming has already implemented them and they probably won't be adding anymore to those nations.
  18. Potential Unique German Commander

    Since we now have both a US and a Japanese unique commander, I suppose the next thing to do is for wargaming to create a unique commander for Germany. Why, you might ask? Well for just one reason as to why: It is one of the most developed tech tree so far in the game, excluding the US and the Japanese tech trees of course, so it only makes sense for one of the more developed nations to get a unique commander as oppose to any of the other nations thus far. But anyway, the German Admiral who I believe should be wargaming's next unique commander is Erich Raeder, as he was the grand admiral of the German Navy from the beginning of World War II, and served in the German Navy from 1894 to 1943, and was the Chief of Staff for Admiral Hipper in 1912 and served alongside him throughout World War I, and even played a major role in the Battle of Jutland with Hipper's battlecruiser force. For that reason, I feel like he would make an excellent choice as a unique commander for Germany, as he played a major role in the naval history of World War II.
  19. Confused about moving captains to premium ships. As I understand it, one can move a same-nation captain to a premium ship with no cost or penalty, even from a different ship type. But there appears to be a retraining cost when moving them back to their original ships. Is this correct? I saw this when I moved my Nassau captain to the Konig Albert to build his experience. But when I wanted to put him back in the Nassau, it said it would be 10,000 xp to retrain him. He has to be retrained to return to his original ship? Same tier, same type? It would basically charge me the xp he gained from the premium ship when moving him back. If this is so, where is the advantage of being able to move them into premiums? Am I missing something?
  20. Umm..anyone have any idea why i have so zero point orlan captains?
  21. Would anybody be willing to make a mod where the captain portraits are replaced with pictures of dogs, preferably dressed up ones? They could be nation specific too with Shibas being Japanese captains, Golden retrievers being US, Corgis or bulldogs being UK, Pugs or Pekingnese for china, Siberian huskies for Russia, German Shepards for Germany (obviously), and maybe a mix of other breeds for the commonwealth (Cattle dogs, Australian shepards, etc.) Along with this, a captain voice mod replacing voices with barks, whines, growls, and snarls would fit the captains perfectly.
  22. Hey guys! I didn't post this in the bug forum since I am not sure it is one. But today I logged in for the first time in a little while (or I should say first time and then played.) Hopped in my Warspite and went into operation Aegis, and 5 stared it on my first try. So all the rewards come up one after the other as usual.... Then one pops up saying new captain recruited Ship tier I Orlan It seemed strange so I popped over to my barracks and found that I had 6 level Captains for the Orlan.... Did I miss something and this was a prize? since I am not sure it came with a Barrack slot...
  23. Cleveland build for ranked

    So for T6 ranked I have Arizona and a recently re-purchased Cleveland, and while Arizona is a straightforward tank build, I'm somewhat conflicted on where to go with my Cleveland. An AA build is the easy route, obviously (AA perks, AA survivability module, DF consumable), but with all the posts I've seen predicting smoke for this meta, I'm curious about a gunboat/DD killer build for the Cleveland in ranked. So that would mean packing the Hydro consumable instead of DF, for starters. Then IFHE, or DE? Or are they better off used together, so that you get the increased penetration and keep a decent fire chance? And then turret rotation, adrenaline expert? So basically: gunboat or AA Cleveland for ranked?
  24. Can someone educate me on if it's possible to use the new Captains earned in the operations without paying the retraining fee? Seems strange that you cannot freely use them on tech tree boats because they are already trained for tier 1 boats. Because of this you either have to spend 500 DB, 200k Credits for 50% training, or fully having to grind to unlock their skills. It makes no sense to reward a restricted Captain.
  25. Captain Ranking

    In short I kinda screwed up early on in ranking my IJN DD captain. I am now in a Mutsuki (T5) and have enough points to upgrade to the Fubuki. My captain is still 2 levels away from getting CE though. Would it be worth it to transfer him to the Tachibana (T2 premium ship) and rank him there so he can get the premium xp bonus or just leave him where he is and continue the grind in a higher tier non-premium ship?
