I think this game will go from Good to Great if they can find a way to bring Submarines into the fight. Maybe have a the subs remain on the surface ( where they are vulnerable) then have the ability to dive for a short period of time to fire their torpedoes. The set up could be similar to the aircraft carrier mode. then the Surface ships can counter with the addition of depth charges. Thoughts?

They will add subs after the RN BB release IMO.

Ships in this game can sink completely in shallow water...and they would have to model the sea floor on every map for this to happen. Stop asking for subs.

Why do these fools keep asking for slow, limited arc torp spammers, when the same fools whine constantly about invis-firing destroyers and 'unstoppable' carrier TBs? :facepalm: Oh right, :rolleyes: so they can attack warships without any hope of people shooting back.  Sorry, didn't see the obvious. :yes_cap:

 

I'll make you a deal.  Name 1, just one fleet vs. fleet action that submarines took part in.  Not scouting ahead of time, not cleaning up after, not ambushing the unsuspecting.  One engagement while shells were flying, that subs took part in.  Manage that and I won't tell you where you can put your suggestion.  I'll wait. :read_fish::popcorn:

 

That's right, none! :angry: So go take your suggestion and [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REALLY REDACTED] [MORE REDACTED THAN HILLARY'S EMAIL SERVER RECORDS] then bury it in a small unmarked grave, and hope no one saw you.

They'll add subs after Russian aircraft carriers :D.

 

Seriously though,weren't WW2 subs known more for commerce raiding / hunter-killer operations...and not fleet sorties?

Yeah pretty much so. I would think they could add them into a PvE scenario  where you are commerce raiding, maybe throw some Q-ships at your or maybe a destroyer. Subs are so slow, not sure anyone would really want to play them. On the surface their speed picks up but they would be easy to smack around.

Just how lazy are people, that they have to post this drivel, when the responses on the subject probably cover several hundred pages....:hmm:

I know I can't add polls as comments to existing posts, but I really want to make one on whether or not we should keep beating a dead horse (i.e. submarines in WoWs.)

I wonder if people assume that since their main armament is torpedoes, that they would be quick and nimble comparable to destroyers? Also don't they realize all the counters against destroyers in game (sonar, radar, aircraft) would also hinder submarine play? Not to mention the addition of depth charges and possibly anti submarine aircraft if this where to be considered?

OP, you've been around for a while. which means you should have been around during april fools, when WG added a sub to the port as a joke. that should put this into clear perspective as to how they see submarines in their game. (they don't)

Subs are more boring than you think - and one round into the pressure hull or one depth charge salvo and you should be dead or unable to submerge. They'd be the best scouts though, and if they snuck past the line, they'd probably only be able to threaten carriers or battleships..

 

but they'd need to add sonar, depth charge dispensers/k-mortars to ships, and an entire underwater layer where the subs could operate.

 

I don't think including another ship class is going to add the spice you're looking for, unfortunately.

 

Having played games where subs are a thing, they can really only manage a couple kills, maybe one or two more if they have reverse facing torpedo dispensers and some idiot charges at you then stops paying attention and munches a torpedo. The other thing they do is bait kill hungry destroyers and cruisers to come depth charge them, and you pray for your heavy cruisers and battleships to delete them before they delete you. We have no supply ships for them to target so there's not much for them to accomplish. Subs work best when their targets have no teeth.

 

Maybe not having every game mode as a variant of last team standing would shake things up for example.

 

Till then, camp to win my friend. camp to win. The team that out-camps the other wins.

WW 2 era submarines are nothing but intelligent mines when submerged.  That is, they are excruciatingly slow and unless their prey blunders on top of them, they have no means of attacking much of anything.  Surfaced, they are little more than targets for warships.  That's why they submerged when faced with even small surface combatants.

So, if WoW has even the slightest scintilla of intellect, and I'm sure they far exceed that level of intelligence there will never be submarines brought into the game for play.
