Completely forgot i had him. Just looking for opinions on how to use him. I see Flamu uses him on the cruisers and i'm just wondering if anyone uses him on battleships? His skills seem to be for the BB but that loader perk on a des moines seems disgustingly OP!

He's only level 6 so i might use him when the new US cruiser line comes out to level.

What line do you use him on?

I use him on the USN BB line for the extra turret traverse. I have EL too, but it was the last skill point and I haven't used it yet in game. He would be good on the cruisers too.

Also, next update he will no longer the Seagal, he will be John Doe.

I use him on BBs, it's the best use of his skills. Seems like a waste on cruisers.

I put him on the Admirals Skiff I don't use him at all

Why don't you use him? I know the skill bonus are not that big a deal but still...

Either the collaboration expired or they're cutting ties. Why John Doe is the question we've all been asking. My guess is they have another captain in the works, and Doe is only a place holder.

You want a real gunner? Why not Admiral Willis Augustus Lee? Naval Academy Rifle Team Champ. Olympic Medals? Five gold, one silver one bronze. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willis_Augustus_Lee

Man knew his stuff.

I use him on Montana for the expert loader perk, switch your shells in 7.5 seconds or less. Comes in handy when you're burning somebody from the bow and they try to turn out of it.

This is DEFINATELY the guy to replace Mr. Seagull, a serious fighting sailor or WW2. Plus 1 dude!

I actually like him AND his calm voice over some wild-eyed, frizzle-haired, screaming lunatic jumping up-and-down screaming "De Plane! De Plane!".

Seagull sounds like what I believe a REAL Captain sounds like. Like Picard saying "make it so" or Kirk saying "beam me up, Scotty". 

I have him at level 8 and he works quite well on my Indianapolis.

As to his replacement...how about a REAL American's name and not some European immigrant?  I could go with Geronimo, or Cochise or Tecumseh, or Standing Bear. But the Euros in Russia will probably pick another Euro name. Blockheads.

I think it would be fun for WG to rename him after one of the Community Contributors. Maybe Capt Noster, or Capt  Kizarvexis. Maybe even Capt Lert with the Cat picture. Captain LWM would be cool, they could have her bouncy bounce avatar as the Captain picture.

I can't stand his voice. He sounds exhausted all the time- like he's being choked out on set or something.

No you could only get him from a special event, maybe a year ago.

 

I'm using mine on the New Orleans.

Baltimore. I use the reload module so the increased turn rate really helps to compensate for module’s traverse degradation (on DM I use the range module so I’m not losing any turret traverse rate). I also think his improved EL skill is optimal on the Baltimore’s reload. It’s faster than on NO and the DM shoots so fast I just clear the barrels when switching anmo.

Ahh Kapitan my Kapitan.  I humbly disagree.  He is the perfect skipper for the Cleveland to drive some pep in the traverse and boost the shell switching.

Me too.

I got him where he feels at home, on the Missouri.  Just be sure to select the skills he enhances to get the bonus effect.

You might have him on the Missouri but he's not "assigned" to the Missouri as premiums don't require "assignment". Assume he's still assigned to T1 CL then?

I use him on my Pensacola where the quicker turret traverse and faster loading of those ten 8 inch rifles is a nice bonus. The Pennsy depends on dodging and throwing shells back at the red ships as fast as she can so he's pretty helpful in keeping those guns on target and sending more shells downrange.   I haven't shifted him to battleships as I've loaded him up with the skills I prefer for cruiser commanders but there's no reason he wouldn't work well on a battlewagon if you wanted him to.  I actually ended up using him a bit in Ranked Battles last year so he's now a 10 pt commander not a 6 point one. 

I will kind of miss him, yes his voice overs sound like he's getting ready for a nap but it was a nice change from the same old voice all the time.

This, my guess is they are cutting ties and the word came down from corporate very suddenly which would explain John Doe. Personally I wish they would choose a real US captain from the era.

It just says "specialization North Carolina" so maybe that's where I had him when he reached 19 points.   Too bad he can't switch ships without retraining like the ARP or IJN reward skippers.

That unperson is useful on a NC or Alabama, because of the high stealth of those Battleships, being able to switch from HE to AP in just 7 seconds becomes very useful.
