Swedish Commander Portraits?

Hello, 

I was wondering about the new European destroyers and their commanders,

Will there be new Swedish/European commander portraits? Or will they remain the same and could I see a picture of one?

Just asking for a small favor, thanks!

There's only 3 I believe ... that pop in a commander for the Swedish ships. 

i.e. I can put my Polish Blyska commander on the Visby, but the system won't recruit one.

This lady is currently Chief of the Swedish Navy

though I imagine it would be tricky to gain permission for WOWS to figure Rear Admiral Ewa Ann-Sofi Skoog Haslum.

And the name's too long.

Aloha,

So ALL of our "Random commanders" are loosely based off WG staff overall. The exception of course are the Unique Commanders, Historical Commanders or Legendary Commanders.

Understand though most of the EU DD's are Swedish, these ships reside in the EU tech tree, so their commanders will be pulled from a pool of likenesses that we have for the EU lines.

Mahalo,

Thanks for the clarification. I can't help but ask if this means that WG does not employ women (for example)? I am sure others will have similar questions spring to mind. I mean, if the random commanders are not historical, but fictional renderings of WG staff, does that mean only Saint Petersburg staff? Or does that mean, for example, that one day we may get a disguised Hapa_Fodder in cameo as a [insert Tech Tree] random commander?

Further official clarification on WG design policy/parametres for Random Commanders (what are the reasoning and objectives behind their selection and visual presentation) would be helpful.

Just a suggestion - can you add more than 3 to the nations with only a few commander portraits? Would be nice to have a minimum of twice that many and not all that hard to do I'm sure.

Yes we employ A LOT of women. We have used multiple female staff members likenesses for several captains in our other game modes currently and then the Dasha commanders. And AGAIN for the random commanders in the regular recruited ships, because they aren't in the game right now doesn't mean they won't happen.

Well I just went through and recruited 10 commanders to check and got 6 different faces. I know the three that were pictured above do come up more often, don't know if this is RNG based or whatever, but ya.

Anyways, back on topic.

I am sure there will be more EU commander likenesses added to the pool.

Check the Italian line, I'm pretty sure there are only 3.

I wish WG would release more random commander portraits,  the italian line is woefully short of image choice and  the Commonwealth line should have non-British commander image's
