THIS ------>  Would you like to see Submarines added to the game?  <------

please note, this is NOT ABOUT:

1) whether you think WG could find a way to add them to the game that actually works.

2) whether you can prove that WG ever said 'they will never be in the game" (there's a LOT of content in the game WG said would never happen)

3) an opportunity to troll. stow your gifs and snarky crap. thank you.

4) anything that you feel would be an in-game priority.

it's just a simple question about whether you would like to see submarines in the game, it's not intended to start a dialog about submarines, nor start a troll thread. thank you for helping to keep it that way! you don't even have to comment about it....

(ed. note: ok, i'll put it more bluntly. I don't give a rats [edited]what you think about it, just vote and don't bother posting. we've already seen all the gifs, stupid trolling, and it's just a poll, NOT intended to be a discussion.)

maybe add them near the enemys base and make it so that they wouldnt have far to go inorder to torp the bb's. also realistically yes submarines went like 18knts under water but guess what dd's cruisers battleships never really sailed full flank straight for hours on end. it would kill the engines. so maybe make the subs a little faster too?

Subs are the only thing WG has ever said absolutely not happening ever. Not, "they're not a priority" or "no current plans" or "very difficult to balance." They've come out and flatly stated not happening. It's I believe the only thing they've ever been so absolute on.

 

I agree, subs are completely incompatible with the current game design.

 

And we need to reset the counter.

Well considering what you said this isn't about, they all influence our decision to bring them in or not.

I vote no.  Unless they only include them in a specific set of scenarios.

I would like to see them in one battle mode I can think of: "Escort the tanker across the map." Subs are bots lying in wait to get through the escort screen and sink the tanker. Certain DDs get equipped with sonar and depth charges. Why not? It's time for more interesting battle modes and missions.

Would I like to play a game where I drive submarines? 

I would definitely give it a try.

 

Would submarines fit in WoWS?

God No. 

 

WG - make World of Submarines!

Well look at that.  A "Is Warships Dying" and "Need Submarines" post back-to-back today.  Check those off my weekly bucket list.

All of my currently-available ships are submersible. I would like to deselect that option.

With Cold Waters success I would hope WG creates a separate sub game. 

 

I agree with WG subs of this this era wouldn't be workable. 

 

Now Cold War era is a different story.

I think that if its possible SUBS should be developed by WOW but not necessarily used in conjunction with the ships in play now.  I see it this way...rubbing on Genie Lamp....Make sub battles separate and unique in nature. In Co-OP mode you could have Bot Ship Tenders being escourted by Bot DDs and CA's   Your team depends on the convoy NOT getting to their destination.  Another is in Random mode.  Bot tenders accompanied by players in their DD's and CAs detecting and killing off the SUB players.  Thats just ONE idea...I am sure there can be more...  Basically the SUBS would be another revenue stream and if it does not make enough..Kill it. but what if it becomes a sustainable financial model?  Well..WOW has a sub modeled..now whether its opertional is another matter.  I would think that some more variety would be a step in the right direction.  I would hold this idea as in players can choose if they want CV's in their battle choice.  meaning some have opted to not maximize their AA config.   But thats a subject for another time....

This topic post screams "Bring back the downvote, please!" *

* I will not be reading the replies because I can use my imagination & I bet any predictions I make will be 100% 'bang on'. Pile on time, incoming.
