Question about the Halloween camos + Halloween captain missions

So I got lucky and drew a Halloween skin for my Z-23. It came with a 5k base XP mission to earn the appropriate Halloween themed captain:

Now I have a question ...

I already have all the old Halloween skins from last year's event. However, not the captains. If I'm not mistaken, when you draw a camouflage from a Halloween container, it'll check which ones you already have and then draw one you don't. Which means that it's not possible to get the old Halloween captains for Halloween skins you already have from previous events.

Is there going to be some method of gaining them?

Only particular ships come with a capt. I think only the new skinned ones do.

In addition, four new camouflages from Operation "Terror of the Deep":

  • Special camouflage for battleship North Carolina (Leviathan) and a Combat Mission. For completing the mission you will get Commander Max Strauss with 10 skill points.
  • Special camouflage for destroyer Kiev (Razorworm) and a Combat Mission. For completing the mission you will get Commander Boris Veber with 10 skill points.
  • Special camouflage for destroyer Z-23 (Steel Rat) and a Combat Mission. For completing the mission you will get Commander James D. Breese with 10 skill points.
  • The first animated special camouflage for cruiser Mogami (Octopus) and a combat mission. For completing the Combat Mission you will get Commander David Jones with 10 skill points.

I am aware. This means that the other captains are unavailable to us. I'm wanting to know if WG is planning another means for us to get those.

What other capts? You cant have the skins prior to this years event, those 4 with the capts are new skins and were unavailable last year.

It dawned on me while you were typing that, those are what you meant. I just didnt see those listed anywhere to be available to anyone this year.

Exactly. Which is the entire problem. :) I'd love a chance at those. Especially the one for Nassau, he looks amazing.

Not at this time. Last year and this year the camos for the Saving Transylvania and Sunray in the Darkness did not come with captains. Only the four new Halloween camos come with captains this year.

I am aware. Hence me asking if there are any plans to make the other captains available too.

Probably not as I think that WG would already have said plan revealed as the Halloween event runs to early morning on Wednesday, November 21st.

so you don't get the ship, but you get the captain and a camo for when you earn the ship?

Well, you can put the captain on any ship, but the perma-camo will wait in your inventory for you to get the ship.

... of the same nation, though the captain comes trained for that specific ship.

Personally, I’d be over the moon if we could obtain the captains associated with the low-tier Saving Transylvania ships permanently.

Maybe with some upcoming Halloween bundels? If you check the October missions there is a sub called killer whale. You can get it by eithet earning 50k base XP or buying a Halloween bundle.
