    Dev Blog: Subs are here

    Yup. CV's are fading into their previous insignificance, and over time these new gimmicky DD clones submarines will too. But not without the usual salt, rage-quitting, and general panic of course.
  2. They'd also be good at detecting mine fields...but only once.

    How might ASW work

    Hydro for detection and some kind of consumable AoE "Depth Charge Pattern" clicky similar to Defensive AA would be my guess. But what the hell do I know? We're so far lost in La La Land now anything is possible.

    A question for WG on subs

    Sure. And my Gearing gets the AN/RUR-5 ASROC with that lovely W-44 payload. Witness the Skaggie Aggie (USS Agerholm) trying it out!

    California HYPE

    Not really. At least not me. I like the WV '41 just fine, and the basic WV '44 modeling is done in the Hotel California. Just a matter of time. I've seen the original Gibbs & Cox drawings for the post-Pearl refits of the WV, TN, and CA in the tech library at PSNS, and except for the main battery and directors the resurrected WV is the same as the TN and CA. The old velums were too fragile to try a light-box overlay, but the detail dimensioning is extremely close. Stick some Colorado turrets on the Cali, and voila!

    Submarines - Make or Break for WoWS future

    Might as well. WOWS crossed the Bridge on the River Silly with the basic armor concepts and concealment system. You can have your mines, but I want land-based ASW aviation. Start with blimps and move on up to the Tier 7 PBY Catalina, Tier 8 Short Sunderland, Tier 9 P2V Neptune, and Tier 10 Avro Shackleton.

    I don't. Who said they didn't? God only knows.

    Submarines - Make or Break for WoWS future

    Attempting to invoke any semblance of historicity in WOWS is patently idiotic. Just start with battleships that can't fight broadside and all destroyers having torpedo reloads and go from there. WOWS is an arcade game of floaty boat models that shares nothing with the realities of naval combat in any era.

    A change to Co-op I never saw announced

    Welcome to The Dark Side.
  12. I'd love to see a decent inplementation of the Lexingtons, but I'm afraid WG would bastardize "modernize" them like the PEF and Iron Duke.

    The last boat I was SUPSHIP/Docking Officer on during overhaul at Nightmare Island was the old Sculpin, SSN-590, so I have no clue if later classes of US SSN/SSBN still carry analog fathometers. I just fixed 'em, I didn't ride 'em except on sea trials. Maybe one of our resident bubbleheads can inform. For the game's sake, it really makes no difference. WOWS subs will do exactly what the devs tell them to do, nothing more or less.

    Indeed. I gave up illusions of realism about 6,400 games ago when I first discovered that battleships in WOWS can't fight broadside. Any pretense of WOWS being any kind of actual simulation, either historical, technical, or tactical, is just plain silly. But it's still fun to drive cool floaty boats and blow stuff up.
