​We all have seen Steven Seagal became obtainable captain in WoWs already.

​Why not introduce real captain in history of naval warfare as an obtainable captain via set of mission or something else?

​This would be nice to see them in action again. I understand this will be controversial about legitimacy in touching these name.

 

Let's pour some idea about some of most famous captains of each navy. Which one we want to see them in action? Why these captain should/shouldn't be touched and reason behind it.

 

I can't fill all of them, these are some of them that I could recall about. So you can tell me to add it up if you wish 

I hope WG may consider this as a viable options to game contents.

 

Cheers

Can I get the option "Neither"?

 

Because I dont mind, but it will be a bit debate to implement them. 

 

There are third choice for you but if that wasn't clear enough I'll correct it for you :)

Nah its cool. But I expect they will came with their ships.

Eg. Bull Halsey with the Enterprise. Now that, I will "Heck yeah!" and instant buy the ships and the captains. :coin:

Halsey? Sorry to burst your bubble, but you do know this guy sent his 3rd fleet into a hurricane costing over 800 men and numerous ships. I believe it was the worst non-military action lose to occur to the US during the war. He simply ignored the warnings he was told about until it was far to late, and the rest is history. So if you end up in a game with him as a captain on any of your team mates ship, there should be a chance of everyone on your team sinking (especially DD's), damage modules, lose all flight CV ability from if a storm begins  and the only planes to be used after it's gone are those from the reserve, etc. So yes give him buffs but give them the liability as well... :P

 

In other words lets just do it in name only ah, no buffs.

 

Otherwise I like the idea of having them as captains or at the least give us the ability to change there names to what we want in game. How hard could that be?
