Are the Commanders in the Premium Shop "special" like the ones in game?

So, Bert Dunkirk as opposed to Jack Dunkirk...

George Doe as opposed to John Doe...

Charles-Henri Honoré instead of Jean-Jacques Honoré...

And so on.

 

Well?  Do they ALSO have the special skills within the Commnder tree?  OR, are they just the Stephen Baldwin to Alec Baldwin?

$15 for a special commander?:Smile_amazed:

Just how desperate is WG getting? Game peaked at 11,300 players last night WG, you really think stuff like this will help?

Yeah... that seems a bit steep...   I'd buy a version of it cheaper without bonuses or 10 points to start with..... but at $20 theres no way I'm collecting them all

Does this mean, then, that one can have multiple special commanders of the same nation?

The best I can see these are for people who can't get the captains they have missed. Though I am not sure about the cost. Such Joe Doe (Steven Seagal) was only available with a mission. This does make it for people who wanted them can get them.

Yes...you are a virtual slave owner.

Though if you get them through the game. Does that mean they like you as a commander?

Looks like you can only buy one of each, though.  That would give you the one earned in a mission and the one purchased , for a total of two.

interesting -- I thought these were all going to be slowly leaked out as part of missions over the next few months. 

$15 for a 10-point cap'n:

They cost $14.53 (USA) not $20.00 and they come with flags as well. Price is not unreasonable, IMO, for a 10pt Capt w/ enhanced skills and a pak of flags including some dragons. I got them all except for the Russian one as I have so many Russian 10pt Capt's (Santa crate duplicate ships), including the one from the recent missions, I will never use them. Might grab him just to complete the set so to speak but probably not.

This might shock you, but not everyone here lives in the US.

Exactly, the global economy is a hell of a drug~
I'd like to see some extra lil things tacked onto this pack to really make it worth that $20 (Flags are good but not everyone will want them), or offer an option of just the captain with no free points or flags

We assume you just rounded up somehow. Either way if I’m your currency the captains are 20 whatever, it is still a decent deal. It takes 183k XP to get to 10 points which isn’t a lot but you don’t have to work without a 4 point skill (if you don’t have elite xp), you get the bonuses which some are nice, and you get flags. The flags alone are worth $3.22 so that means $11.31 for a 10 point captain, the special flag, and the bonus skill. Still up to you but not a rip-off.
