So, new patch! New snowflake event! Puerto Rico! Lots of stuff going on in 8.11, good times! And then there's one change that snuck in under the radar: Gunther Lutjens is in the Armory. Cool, Germany gets their special commander! He's the same price as Kuznestov and that Sansonetti will be, so that all checks out. His abilities are pretty solid honestly, that "300 HP per tier for every three ships spotted" will make him a monster DD skipper, that's for sure.

One weird thing to note though... Why now? Why release him with this patch and no fanfare? Where's the event? A collection at least for the option to mount two flags and swap camo palettes?  I'm not mad, just confused. I think a lot of people are. So can we get some clarification over here @Umbaretz ? @Hapa_Fodder?

Why? So people will stop whining and asking "Why doesn't Germany have a legendary commander? It must be due to Russian bias."

So they release him with less fan-fair than the non-Admiral historicals? If anything it highlights how little they gave crap.

At bare minimum, they should of at least waited a bit and included him with one of the following events/arcs:

  • Introduction of Siegfried
  • German Arc campaign to earn second flag option on German ships

The PR stuff is visually impressive and a lot of work went in to it, I’m sure, but every other aspect of this holiday patch feels phoned in.

Okay, well. As I suspected doing some research, we wanted to release Lutjens, because, well, he was ready and we wanted all of you to have some more options in the armory.  So Cheers!

I think they looked at people that buy a lot of coal ships and realized they were running out of things to purchase with coal.  Gotta have them resource sinks.

That and the fact that players will likely be raking in a lot of coal through Christmas crates.
