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.

I doubt your going to get a Nazi special commander, it will most likely be Scheer or Hipper.  Imperial Germans are so less threatening than Nazi ones.

Doubt we will see any Nazi commanders in the game, WG wants to be able to market it's content globally.

Perhaps a slight buff to Concealment Expert due to his raiding.  Hard to balance that though so perhaps make it so it only effects Cruisers with a more minor buff to DD's/BB's

It's okay, at least you remember the most important historical commander: Steven Seagal. :cap_like:

 

But with a whole bunch of anime girls and Steve, one has to ask if it has to be a historical commander. The historical accuracy puritans will disagree strongly, but I'd like to have Arnold Schwarzenegger. Because the thought of sailing my Scharnhorst around with Arnie's Austrian accented cheesy one-liners coming through the sound speakers would be hilarious.

The more I think about it, the more I believe that Hipper would be a better unique commander, as he was both a successful and aggressive naval commander during World War I, also his unique traits would be +5% to ship's top speed and +25% to firing range of secondaries, main battery guns of 139mm or less, and AA with AFT.

it's going to be hard to get a ww2 german commander since the masses can't know what divides the german navy from the german army and SS.

graf spee commander perhaps,his conduct was good.

yamamoto became a commander even if the IJN were not exactly saints too.

Maybe a faster rest on his concealment after firing his guns, like 15 secs instead, but only on cruisers.

nobody gives a crap.  People play German ships anyway.  Nobody sees the Bismarck and thinks "oh no, I won't play that Auschwitz ship!"  And the "masses" that you speak of wouldn't even recognize the name of whatever German commander they put in the game regardless.  It's a non-issue.

"WE" aren't discussing anything; you are trying to get me to drop the fact you want a NAZI War Criminal as a "special" captain.

I said "no", and I will again.

If you want a real German hero, and a very special Kapitan, use Kapitanleutnant Felix Von Luckner.

what specifically did he do wrong?  He's a "war criminal" for being a successful and competent military leader for the "bad guys."

He was indicted on three counts: (1) conspiracy to commit crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity; (2) planning, initiating, and waging wars of aggression; and (3) crimes against the laws of war. Raeder was found guilty on all the counts

copypaste from wikipedia without any specifics.  I'll just take that as you don't actually know anything about him at all.
