Nice to get that free Azur Lane crate & commander, I got the Sovetskaya Rossiya commander. Fun to have the different dialog, etc. So as a bit of a thank you to WG for doing it,  I went and bought another AL prem container for doubloons and got... the Sovetskaya Rossiya commander.

Why does it always seem to always happen that way? ;)

Was there any compensation for getting the duplicate?

Says right in the news articles and detail texts, "you can get infinite duplicates" (paraphrasing).  

There's a picture going around of a guy who got 10 of the same captain in a previous AL event.

I used 2500 doubloons to buy 1 AL container, and of course, as it is a gacha container, I didn't get the commander that I want (Shoukaku and/or JB) but I got Littorio instead.

75% of the time she's fine

 

Then there's the remaining 25% where she has that evil giggle, the scream as she fires a broadside, and the one where she is obviously quite.....excited to cause damage.

 

Keviseeb really got surprised by the scream, and wierded out by the..... excited part.

 

Ashley was more along the lines of '...will never use that captain again.......'

That's exactly what makes her so much FUN to listen to, lol.

I find it better than other ones with almost constant demeanor of voices. They don't... vary as much. On the other hand, Roon is very dynamic, and it makes her seem "more alive" so to speak.

That's just me though. If you and your friends are so bothered by it, there's always the cogwheel menu at the bottom right corner of the Port UI... lel.

I don't know the show or characters or anything, just like the variety of the captain dialog. I do know that the pink teddy bear from the last AL group is hilariously insane. Get her on fire and well... clearly it is the end of times!!!

I wish there was a way to trade them...Got the Baltimore Captain from the 1 crate I purchased and would gladly exchange it for someone with the Roon captain.

Where did you get the free crate from out of curiosity?

I think it's from Twitch Prime? I'm not sure, but I think I heard of something like that. 

Personally for myself, I just bought the captain bundle, because I wanted all of them anyway. It saved me from the hassle of dealing with the RNG boxes.

yeah, I can tell you don't know the show.

 

the Pink Teddy Bear is Kirishima from Arpeggio of Blue Steel, a entirely different anime and not game based.

Azur Lane was a game first, then became an anime this past winter.

I got Littorrio  out of the free crate.  I've never bought any of the AL stuff, and the only anime item I bought was Harekaze because it is supposed to be a diverse captain trainer.  All the anime stuff I have other than that was free, or received by in game missions.

Just want Azuma here, not sure why they can't like... sell her?

$250 for all is pretty damn steep.

Azuma is available for free. You need to complete the Azur Lane collection and you can get her, no need to pay!

+1
I completed the Azur Lane collection after the previous Azur Lane collaboration.
Commander Azuma was the Captain of my battleship Nagato, until I acquired the cruiser named Azuma.

Yup, it was from associating my plain Twitch acct with WoWS. I actually did that a long while ago, but there were "free gifts" for doing it so I went and clicked and the gifts were there and it worked.

Note: I don't have twitch prime. I did set it up for 1 month for free, which it was free with my regular Amazon Prime for one month. That was enough to get it associated to WoWS. I cancelled it before it renewed, but it still got me the free crate. 

There are other free stuff too, one was another 10pt captain, a twitch broadcaster I assume - though sadly she uses the regular male captain voice.

Ah, well... yah. I haven't any idea who is what or why. I just know that Kirishima goes bonkers when the ship is on fire and it always makes me chuckle. Though since she's a teddy bear, I assume she's extra flammable and thus at even greater risk. I think the last anime I actually followed was Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion. Not sure which came first, it was a while ago.
