    11.7: RIP Submarines

    Like everything else sub related by WeeGee... They are throwing c r a p at a wall and seeing what sticks. If their almighty spreadsheets show that this latest 'brilliant fix' doesn't work well they will scrap it and do something else - I mean seriously, how long have subs been in the experimental stage now?? YEARS?
  2. Hehe, well in real life during the war the Yokosuka D4Y planes were launched WITHOUT floats (and then recovered by other conventional carriers or landed back on dry land). The float planes the Ise and Hyuga carried in addition to the D4Ys, the Aichi E16A were also dive bombers and did have floats, so floats aren't a limiting factor. It's odd that WG used the right aircraft for the Ise in WoWs Blitz, but not in the main game.
  3. Honestly, I think Volron's suggestion is best after thinking about it. The test server gave us all three option's. If the folks at WG are going to open the door to fictional load outs for this ship, why not make all of them available to the players? But, AND I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH, if there is a dive bomber option MAKE SURE THEY ARE THE HISTORICAL YOKOSUKA D4Y AIRCRAFT the Ise actually carried during the war.

    Another Napoli Post

    He's saying that the Napoli needs the Soundwave (Superior) Transformers camo added to it in the game.
  5. Can we please add the option to use the Ise's historical dive bombers - the Yokosuka D4Y aircraft. These are the exact same planes on the T6 Ryujo CV so no new coding would have to be done. This would give the Ise's owner the option to use EITHER the torp attack planes or dive bombers - much like what many ships can do between spotter planes or fighters (or standard CVs can do with any plane load out) before a battle. Thanks!!

    So... functioning AA guns on subs... when?

    Well that is still valid, CVs don't have any ASW currently - and they should. What I am talking about is that nearly every ship that doesn't have depth charges on board, has the ASW airstrike that subs can't do anything about - not even a little, despite nearly all subs having pretty looking AA guns.

    So... functioning AA guns on subs... when?

    Except when you can't...like when your batteries are depleted.
  8. When are the AA guns on submarines going to be made functional? Getting pretty tired of shaking my fist at planes when my batteries are depleted on the surface and I'm standing two feet away from an impressive array of disabled AA guns on my bridge. What I want is this - not this -

    I would like to see this 'subtitle' (exact translation or difficulty hearing) dialog in a separate box on screen. Star Trek Online has a pretty good way of doing this with a small box along the left side of the screen with a thumbnail picture of the person speaking next to the text as the dialog is heard over the speakers. The 'generic' dialog (Fair winds and following seas! etc.) would still show up in the standard text chat window.

    Can we get subtitles or a dialog box somewhere on screen that tells us in English precisely (not just the general 'Good luck and fair seas' stuff) what our non-English speaking captains are saying? Thanks!

    Developer Bulletin for Update 0.11.5

    I would love to see the 'Superior' (Soundwave) Transformers camo added to T10 Napoli.

    When Do We Get The IJN I-401 Submarine?

    Nah, it will launch Kawanishi H8K (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawanishi_H8K) flying boats that drop depth charges. Because WeeGee is so historically (or should I say hysterically) accurate. I mean seriously they put the torp planes this sub was suppose to have on the Ise - and didn't even give a dive bomber option for that ship. So you just know they are gonna screw up the I-401 with some lame 'gimmick' aircraft.

    Support Carriers

    Yep. Everybody knows fire is hot. Let me put my hand in it to get some actual data....

    Support Carriers

    Seriously, are they brain dead? Anyone who has ever gamed knows it's going to be garbage! Why are the wasting time on it when they know it's trash? Oh right...spreadsheets.

    Support Carriers

    Yep, WeeGee is tossing out any semblance of reality in this game with the concept they have for these CVs. Remember when stun bombs were used at Midway - or any other CV conflict in history? Neither do I.
