Autumn Commanders... ...

Wait so am I getting this right...? Are the Autumn Commanders 'buffed' Captains? (Honest question, can't seem to confirm it).

I have to gamble on Autumn bundles to try and get the ONLY OTHER 'BUFFED' IJN CAPTAIN?

WG are you serious?

Honestly?

I did the maths, it's 44,400 for all the bundles.

There's a 3/50 chance of getting a 'legendary' Captain, 2/50 of getting one applicable for IJN...

That's 14,800 per captain, or if you are like me and don't care about PA Captains (I don't, there's only the one line, so I have one 'buffed' Captain I care about); that's 22,200 dubloons for an IJN 'buffed' Captain.

Even if they aren't 'buffed' this is stupid and ridiculous.

So screw you WG, specially if these Captains have buffed traits, even 'vanilla' buffed ones. If not, gating content behind bundles is flipping horrible anyways, so screw you even more.

I don't like bundles/loot crates at the best of times but I particularly hate it when it's the only way to get something.

SIGH

NB: If someone can clarify whether the Autumn Captains are buffed or not, that would be greatly appreciated... (As I can't find information on whether they are or aren't anywhere).

The name and the voice look and sound like Japanese but I looked quite long enough to realize, the costume and the face >> absolute Chinese

I don't think they are buffed. Or if they are, this is the first time I am hearing it.

Yeah great...

So still no IJN buffed captains.

Seriously getting sick of this crud. I must've got the wrong idea somewhere when someone mentioned new IJN Captains...

Still hiding them only behind bundles is ridiculous

Someone commented that someone said that the 'captains' look as if they worked in an ancient Chinese brothel.

I prefer the one filled with red bean paste though....

*ahem*

Well I actually got Chang'e on first roll. But I decide to not get her because I rarely play Pan Asian ships. My Da Rong is still unassigned since I got him last year.

Mid Autumn Festival is celebrated in China, Korea, and also Japan , so its not really just China ; in fact Mid Autumn Festival is a major festival in Korea , I am baffled to why there is no Korean Commander , might be because there is no Korean ship yet in game , and  I'll take al the mooncake if allowed

When about 80% of nations on Earth, if not more, are in the Northern Hemisphere, well, deal with it :Smile_trollface: Blame The Universe instead :Smile_trollface:

2. Forgetting Chung Mu?

I don't know about the brothel part, but all of them look ultra awful.

Pretty sure if a nation has a Chinese community or Chinese cultural influence of any level, Mid-Autumn is a thing...

Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam all have Chinese communities and/or Chinese influence.

It's not 🙂 This is to celebrate Lunar calendar holidays. Korea began celebrating Chuseok (추석) today, which is an Autumn festival based on the Lunar calendar. :cap_horn:
