not the video guy, the captain in wows

he keeps telling me a sub is spotted or a cv when there are no cv's in the match

while this has been so far amusing, its going to get annoying pretty quick once subs are introduced, if its calling everything by the wrong ship name.  i hope this gets fixed soon

What's better is when he tells me I sank an allied sub.

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature (seriously). Jingles has an infamous habit of misidentifying ships and getting details wrong in his videos (he regularly admits to “being crap”) so WG ran with it. This is one of the reasons he’s the captain of my Furious - the misidentification of a ship is less likely to get me killed.

That, and I appreciate the irony of putting Jingles on a CV.

That is a feature and is intended.   There is an ongoing joke in Jingle's youtube videos where he mispronounces and mislabels ships and classes.   He went to WG HQ to record the lines and when he get got home, WG purposely rearranged all the callouts to be wrong on purpose as a joke

Yeah , Jingles used to complain because he couldn't see what the heck he was talking about in the playback for his videos. He litterally had a screen the size of a matchbox to view it on ND kept saying battleship to a destroyer and such . Lol. Hilarious.

I think that WG should model Jingles' cat, Akizuki, and have it running around the ship if you have him as captain.

The "make Jingles crap again" campaign worked a bit too well for some.

 

But he's the only captain I can argue with during a game and be amused by it.

 

Jingles: "We've sunk an allied aircraft carrier" (in a Tier II match).

Me: 'You what, mate?'

 

Though soon, those random submarines sightings will start to become real.

@vallonzek, working as intended. Jingles is well known for misidentifying ships so the in game one does too.

If you earned the Jingles and ComRichard captains (same equal mission for both), you can select the voice-over in your audio settings --- for ALL ships.

Many of these missions require you to go through your news articles and actually read them to find the right button to hit to start the missions.

This was one of them you missed.  Hopefully, it'll come up again.  I've got him on both accounts.   ...  and 'Bad Advice' as well.

---- AND -----

If you go into a training room and sink a Friendly.....   'You just sunk an enemy Battleship'.

Isn't Mighty Jingles World of Tanks?  Rear Admiral Jingles is the Warships personality I believe.

You are correct that  he introduces himself in that way in his WOWs videos, though.

He doesn't lie, he's just frequently mistaken.
