I'm a San Jose Sharks fan. Is it worth going for Ovechkin?

So yes, I saw that Alexander Ovechkin is coming to World of Warships as a commander. But my favorite team is the Sharks. In real life, I don't care about him.

Is it still worth going for him in WOWS, at least just for an extra high point commander?

Side note: My username comes from the San Francisco Giants, not the New York Giants.

He gets special perks in the game, so yes. If he was a generic commander with nothing special, then no.

I dont like these captain skills that give more than standard captains.  It can create some bad OP scenarios just because a guy has a particular captain on his ship.

This and the rewards you will acquire along the way make it worth doing the missions just for them.

Why not go for it? Its free, and since you don't care too much for it there would be no disappointment if you don't unlock everything. Chances are decent that you could progress through it without paying any attention to it aside from the initial opt in.

Well...yes.  That's the whole point of a special commander with extra good skills.  It's nice to be specially good.  After all, we're not socialists here (yea that means you, Bernie).

Ovi is NEVER worth it. Don't besmirch your team by getting that pile of trash, especially when San Jose has a legitimate shot of getting the Stanley Cup before Jumbo Joe finally becomes too old.

"Possible Free North Carolina"

Damn it, and I just recently unlocked her with FXP, having been excited about the new Halloween NC camouflage.

Go ahead and complete the stuff to get him, then just wait for the mod makers to do a reskin to change him to someone or something else.  I personally can't stand the guy, so the first thing I'll be doing is changing his appearance and voice to something else.  Probably some anime ship waifu.

Poor San Jose with their only sports team, although the argument could be made that with the Levi stadium the 49ers are more of a San Jose team than a San Francisco one. On a related note will you be enjoying fleet week?

I agree with this; there are enough gimmicks and cheap tricks in the game already.

That's the point, it's not YOU that's especially good, you just have better electronic tricks, and that's just a bad joke. I don't mind losing to someone who has better skills, but because he has better gimmicks? That's nonsense.

Total money grab by the ‘9ers. It was a race to see which team could build a (terrible) stadium in Silicon Valley to mine the new gold rush. They should be forced to rename themselves the San Jose Dotcoms.

One of the few hockey jerseys I have left from high school, a sharks away jersey I got in 92 right after they joined the NHL. Even has the 75th NHL anniversary patch on it.

Not to mention great beards (even if it did get shaved recently.:Smile_sad:).

It isn't enough of a buff to compensate for poor all-round play in other areas, at least not in Randoms. It really only makes a difference in higher-level play (e.g. ranked, clan battles, tournament play) where the players are all pretty good and the slight differences count for something. And most of those players have the specialised captains anyway.

I want a Henrik Zetterberg captain.

Next three special captains are rumored to be Kirk Cousins, Oprah Winfrey and Bernie Sanders...
