So any ideas on what these mean?

 

Sales and Surprises

Where'd the May 4th stuff go? Hmm... - No idea
Commander-palooza! - Admiral Halsey campaign?
Brought to you by the letter Z - Graf Zepellin becomes available?
Give ‘em a taste of the Double Dukes! - Duke of York and what else?
Cruisn’ through America - American Cruiser split?

Commander-palooza is referencing the three different commanders you can earn in May.

Brought to you by the letter Z likely is referring to the upcoming German Z39 destroyer.

Double Dukes - probably means the release of Duca degli Abruzzi, and probably with a parallel sale of D'Aosta

Cruisin through America is definitely the American cruiser split

Letter Z - more likely to be Z-39 than GZ.

Double Dukes - Duca Daosta and Duca Abruzzi.

Where'd the May 4th stuff go? Hmm... - No idea  // also no idea. Onyl Thing I have found: 4th May 2012 is the date were the Kronstadt navy museeum opened
Commander-palooza! - Admiral Halsey campaign? // A VMF and KM captain will come this month, Halsey campaign will only come with 7.5 and if it's like the Yamamoto campaign you need to wait 2 weeks before the next stage unlocks
Brought to you by the letter Z - Graf Zepellin becomes available? // Nope there is a German premium DD coming soon. KM DD carried a Z for Zerstörer as their signature 
Give ‘em a taste of the Double Dukes! - Duke of York and what else? // Also nope, We will get another Italian cruiser 
Cruisn’ through America - American Cruiser split? // Yes, with update 7.5

What are the three commanders you can earn?

The American campaign is going to give us Halsey

I've heard rumors of the first Russian commander, but no details on how to earn him.

Who is the third?

The May 4th stuff is probably a reference to Cinco de Mayo.

And, Bill, the other references are probably covered correctly by Ace.

A German one, IIRC.

More likely has something to do with Star Wars (may the 4th be with you).

I'd have thought that a "star wars day" would have been more appropriate during the April Fools sci-fi event, what with the space ships and all.

I still think that it's related to Cinco De Mayo, though I suppose it could also be a belated May Day, Soviet/Russian related event.

The German Captain is awesome!   I totally missed that.  

I guess I'll have to level yet another German captain to 19.  Seriously, my barracks is lousy with them at this point!

Cinco means 5 in Spanish.

Check the Asian Server missions.  The May 4 entry is only about the new Scenario rewards.

https://worldofwarships.asia/en/news/common/scenario-support-missions/

OTOH, on that server the Doubloon Blowout is extended to include the weekend.  So I suspect there's an announcement still to come.  It is only Wed, after all.

The point being that there's nothing else scheduled for the weekend on the Asian server, either.

That vigilance boost while in a Z-52 with hydro running? :Smile_teethhappy: No torpedo zone.
