All captains except Nelson are in shop for $15.99 each. AL Commanders come with flags like the special commanders already being sold. Several other bundles being sold as well.

Looks to me like they don't have any special skills or abilities. 16 dollars for a captain without skills is too steep for me. I'm going to pass.

Actually they are 10 point commanders, but I see your point as in they don't have anything that adds to any skill such as past special commanders.  They are about ~$10 USD each with flags so I guess if you have the cash and need flags you could buy the commander bundle.  $70 is a bit steep though

It is a bit pricey, but I may pitch in a little bit, been a while since I have donated funds to the cause, plus I could use a new US captain that doesn’t have to grind through a lack of CE.

I think the signals are the selling point. Not engaging wallet either.

Unless they're already 19 points, $16 is way too much for these. Holy crap.

I think for most of the folks who would buy these the "special skills" are all in their imaginations.

I suppose if you are a fan these must be cool. For the rest of us I can not see any reason to buy them. Am I missing something?

It’s just a collaboration. Just like any premium ship WG pushes out you either buy it or you don’t. Up to you.

Sadly unique commanders are gone now, I really wish that they label the expiration date

Unique commanders are still there.  You have to log into the Premium shop to see them.

Not sure that is a good comparison.  Premium ship provides a service beyond just being a skin. A unique commander provides a different set of skills. I seems to me like the Azure commanders are literally just a skin.  Which is OK , like I said if you are a fan.

So what the heck is in the "Azur Lane Mission"? I thought Nelson was the free one but she's included in the bundle to seemingly prop up the price-tag higher.

Nelson from what I gather is free for everyone who completes three missions starting tomorrow. She’s included in the all captains bundle because.... I honestly don’t know. Maybe if you want her but don’t have time to complete the missions?

Yeah. To me it just seems like a way for them to inflate the price an extra $10 for no reason. If they include her, why even give the mission to I guess unlock her again? Unless the mission is to unlock the flag.

My assumption is that if one buys the 'everyone' bundle, then it's possible to get another Nelson from the missions.

So... do they even have... voices? No? How about... some special boosted skills? No either? Aww. Well, at least they're cute anime captains... and this time also available to purchase from in-game shop, which means I can buy through Steam. Hooray. xD

They do have voices. No apparent special boosted skills.

Oh really? Cool, then. I guess I'm getting them then.

Two problems though: if I buy the captain bundle, I can't get the Aurora without getting a duplicate AL Aurora captain. Second, the ships that some of them belong to aren't available anymore...

I’m pretty sure they can be used on any ship for their specific nation. So for example Cleveland isn’t locked to the Cleveland etc. Kinda like how HSF captains worked. Thea Krutzer for example wasn’t locked to the Graf Spee.
