I have noticed that the names and faces generated on my newly acquired Friesland are different that the ones on my Viribus Unitis. Perhaps the Swedebotes will also be different.

Neat.

 

The precedent having been established, could we please have the same nation-specific naming algorithm for the Pan-Asian ships? Tagging @Hapa_Fodder

@Hapa_Fodder WoWS needs to steal WoT's model so that for example, every Russian ship commander, (like every Russian tank crew that is currently operated by big-brained players), will be named Mikhail Kalashnikov.

Also so that you can name a French commander after Renee Descartes or Jacques Villeneuve, or, "Jean Picard" or "Luc Picard", etc. and also get to choose how much facial hair you want in the portraits. Some might want excessive pirate beards, others might want more realistic clean-shaven looks. Right now if you randomly generate a name you like you might not like the portrait.

Anyone ever hear the term, "copyrighted"?

I'm sure WG would consider it, but certainly not for free.

But if it's all Wargaming's property, who cares? Unless the WoT and WOWS streams are completely legally separate, I'd imagine what could be used in one could just as well be used for the other.

Well, if they did a marketing partnership with Star Trek, they could use names like Jean-Luc Picard and etc.

Can't just use names because you want to use them, especially from copyrighted property, without first negotiating permission for commercial use.

Non-commercial use in fan-fiction may be another situation, but... you get my point.  :-)

Not perhaps using famous names, but at least choosing the first and last name and appearance you want from the current selection without having to cycle it fifty gazillion times to get what you want.

For example, one of the available Italian captain surnames coincidentally happens also to be mine. I would like my Italian fleet to be populated by pixellated captains bearing my name, with a different first name for each one, and I would have preferred it to be easier to do than it actually was.

I agree that giving you the ability to type in your commander's name directly would probably lead to all sorts of unfortunate and unacceptable choices.

Been hoping they would port the WoT crew customization for a long time.

Speaking of which, one of my Italian captains is named Mario Andreotti... I put him on my fastest ship.
