Feedback? Uh... the consumable camo looks nice I guess (not my favorite by far, but still a lot better than some of the other patterns) and unique horns are different at least. Not really anything else we can even give feedback on with such a small dev blog. :cap_book:

I'd be interested to see how the ship gets released, since there's not much use for low tier ships in terms of missions anymore, so the number of people who would buy it outside of collectors is probably lower.

Interesting to note the unique Capt has no special skills. Is this due to the Capt skills possible update? Could it be a forecast as to what may or may not happen to the current Capts with special skills?

The ship is a little unique so as a collector it may become a port Queen for me

Can't find any thing on the Commander; but the ship was scheduled to be named Almirante Abreu when Brazil ordered it.

Finally the Nueve captain gets another ship he can go into!

"Senhor, you expect me to command WHAT?"

New Pan-Am special commander, Brazilian camo, and Brazilian Albany. Could this be a sign of a Pan-Am line coming in 2021?

So, might this be the precursor for a South American DD line?  (I say DD line because pretty much any nation or group of nations that gets treated as a nation can probably pull together a line of DDs.  The Pan-Asian DD line for example.)  A South American DD line would seem to be one of the more obvious possibilities for smaller nations/navies.

 

EDIT: Can't imagine why anyone would downvote this innocuous post.

Very cool to see some love for another country, maybe Canada can get a unique skipper next... like maybe "Hard-over-Harry"  DeWolf.

I know the feeling when it comes to low (sub tier 5) ships.  I hadn't played my tier 2 ships in a VERY long time before they came up with the Epochs campaign, which ingeniously gave us a reason to play ships from different tiers across the various groups of missions.

If they [edited] with Halsey as I get so much closer to getting him I'll be furious.

Yeah, I played a couple in that event and it made a difference to play some of them instead of the high tiers. You can still have fun occasionally in a 4v4 in the low tiers ... we had a 3 div Tachibana game a while back (4v4) that was a bit of fun to blow off some steam :cap_haloween:

Hopefully they won’t. They’ve had “special” Capts before that came with 10pts and no special skills (Dasha Capt as an example) so it may be just one of those. Halsey is great btw so hope you get him soon!

I actually played a bunch of tier 2 battles just to avoid the tier 4 CVs.

It’d be fun to see a CB “sprint” using tier 2 & 3 ships. Imagine a 7v7 with 19pt Capt in some of those ships! Lol

Brazilian player here, and this is my feedback:

Well... not the braziliam ship that I really want, but finally a ship from Marinha do Brasil, I guess?!

I like it. WG is trying to approach on us (every video on YouTube BR has WoWs ads, even when the channel's content has nothing to do with warships or military stuff). I was not expectating any content like this, specially when the trend topics are american and italian battleships.

I know, it's a T2, a weak and a clone ship. But I think this is just a test to see how the brazilian community will react. I don't like so much the choosen ship because USS Albany served the USN, not the brazilian navy. But, if this is the starting point to a new pan american tech tree, I'll support it (and being a T2, maybe this mean it won't be expensive huehue). Not so long ago, I was a bit sad seeing a lot of WoWs ads in youtube br videos and nothing related to Brasil in the game (if you will invest so much money in propaganda, why not invest a bit in game content for this region? We have a pan america flag and a south american ship in the game already, so, why not?).

I liked the captain, specially about this: "He will have a unique appearance, and his ranks will match those of the Brazilian Navy". You put the Marinha do Brasil jackflag!! I loved it. And about the cruiser, well... the camo is a little... Foreigners tend to think brazilians likes our flag colors on everything, but this only happens on world cups haha (but crazy camos are a common thing now, right? So, there's no problem xD).

And for you guys from North America, I recommend this topic. This may be interesting for you:

I know the stereotype of south american navies is "they are weak". But an pan america line can have good ships, specially battleships (maybe the T9 and T10 being absolutely fantasy ships, but hey, Roon and Hindenburg got the same treatment). The south american dreadnought race was something, after all "né'". And I think we can't complain about paper/fantasy ships nowadays, because there are a lot of ships like that in the game.

Maredraco, você tem um dedo nisso, não é? Agradeço e muito pelo seu esforço em agitar os desenvolvedores do jogo.

Ah, I know that little detail on the Almirante Abreu's bow is just a repainting of the original Albany ornament (I don't know if it's the right way to reffer to this object), but I liked it very much. This is a photo of frigate Niterói F-40, and I pointed the ornament. If more Brazilian ships are added to the game, I hope they will have this.

I'm gridning out Halsey the cheap and lame way by mostly doing the 1 star missions on repeat...over and over and over. It's taken time but I''m on the 5th set of missions finally.

Don't think this guy is real.

This is fine its always good to have a Fleet Commander for Pan America, but why not this guy who is real

Pedro Max Fernando Frontin (8 February 1867 – 7 April 1939) was an Admiral from the Brazilian Navy. He fought alongside the Triple Entente during World War I.

WG doesn't add real people to the game whenever they want, first they take all the legal precautions and fill the proper documents, for burocracy stuff, and they need to ask permission for any living relative of the real person to add his image into the game. Because wg by some way is going to make money over his image.

Once one memeber from the NA staff wrote a post here in the forum saying that Jingles, for example, took about 6 months to complete all the legal requirements to implement him into the game, and he was strongly willing to help.

Since no relative of real commanders were found, they came out with a fictional guy, like the jean-Jacques Honoré, face modeled in one of WG's employees and a generic name.

Was it that much paperwork, or did he just keep filling it out wrong?

most probably the paperwork and documents, the content is available worldwide so the burocracy isn't limited to just one country

Excuse me? You can give the Pan American captain a special skill or two. This is just lazy and disrespectful.

Yeah, I don't like these special commanders that don't come with a couple of enhanced skills.  That includes the historical ones in the armory.  Seriously, how difficult is it to add a couple of enhanced skills?  Jeez.
