First match with Jingles. Queen Elizabeth. Twice he yelled at me "Submarine Spotted!"

There was not sub. It was random. 

If this has already been reported, please ignore.

Its best when you become semi-jaded and he yells enemy destroyer detected and you are focused on that enemy bb in your sites while thinking Yeah Yeah its a BB not a DD Sir Jingles.

 

Right as 4 torps slam into you and the enemy DD sails merrily past your new artificial reef

Sorry for being late to the game on this. I finally am getting around to grinding the British BBs. And no better place to put Jingles.

Maybe that is still to come? LOL!!!

It should.  The lines are randomly selected.  The one you won't hear is "surprise butt sex".

Not just one-shots, but any really solid hit (it need not necessarily be citadels; half a dozen full pens can be just as harmful as one cit). You'll hear it eventually.

Using Jingles as your captain will make you a better player in the long run.

Every time he says something, you'll look at your mini-map to see what actually happened.

Always look when you get that message whether it is Jingles or not.

You have never watched Jingles do a replay comments, have you?  Go to his channel, watch about 10 of them, and you might get it.  It’s not a bug, it’s the way it’s supposed to be.

I've had Jingles for a while now it's sometimes amusing, sometimes infuriating... "we've sunk a friendly cruiser!".... what where, oh.. yeah.

 I learned we could get a second jingles but that was a hard pass. I already have one and usually a couple of teamates actively giving bogus info to take up the slack.

I thought I had great situational awareness until I started playing with Jingles.  Then I realized just how much I was relying on the captain call-outs to know what ships were nearby, and how infrequently I was checking the minimap for their positions.  You're absolutely right about Jingles making you a better player.
