Captain's Names

Why can't a method, hopefully very simple, be added to WoWs that would permit players to rename their ship's Captains?    I have Captains that have very similar, in fact even the exact same names and would love to be able to change them.    I do understand that the game's programmers are mostly Russian and are not as used to the various western names, and I suspect even Asian names.    Letting each player name their own Captains would permit each player to-more easily track their captains and which ships they are on.    

Just a suggestion.

How many doubloons are you willing to spend to change their names? You know damn well if WG implemented it, it would cost a ridiculous amount, just as it does in WoT.

If it means that I can name my captain "Captain Jack Sparrow, the best pirate I've ever seen"

Then yes

...and of course, some would call their captains 'Biggus Dickus' and the like. I can't say this is a priority for WG. They should be prioritizing stuff like T8 MM seeing T10 games constantly etc.

I believe you can dig through some game files to manually change captain names. Whether it is worth the effort is up to you.

Captain Phil McKraken

IJN Captain Long Duck Dong ( with a pic of the Chinese guy in the movie 16 candles)

Russian captain Yakoff Smirnoff

I think I'm liking this idea, count me in.

This should be able to be modded and you are the only one that will see the change but unfortunately the mod would need to be fixed with every patch.

I am already the only who can see the names, and portraits of my commanders. No where in the game, is there a method for you to go through my commander reserves, or my ships to see my commanders. So, me being the only one who can see the modded names, is already a non-issue.

It is kinda strange that this feature exists in WoT but not WoWS.

Yeah, but who in their right mind would pay WG's gold pricetag to do so? Not to mention, you're talking about changing the names on an entire crew in a tank(can't remember if you paid gold for each tank crew or all) versus one captain name in WoWs.

WG could probably do it in WoWs, but it could potentially get costly pretty fast.

That's why its strange. Wg has an opportunity to wrangle more gold from the players and but is restraining themselves.

Not really.  I mean you could change “Smith” to “Sparrow”, but that will change ALL “Smith” to “Sparrow”.  It does work if you want to single out unique captain like Yamamoto and swap his name and icon, but if you wanted to “split” generic captains with the same name it won’t work.  I never ran into this situation though, as there are enough available names to just end up with different variations each time you get awarded some captain.  If you recruit captain manually you can always try few times to get some choice going.

The WoWs team is not the WoT party. So far they are most reasonable and actually listen to the player base. 

It be nice if WoWs team could persuade WoT party to buff IS-4...

Introduce the French Foreign Legion as a playable faction with mythical paper boats that allow full customization of your captains.
