I played a PT Boat game long ago. It was ancient but still a lot of fun. You'd hunt the Tokyo Express (mostly) at night time.

Will WOWS ever introduce PT Boats?

They said nothing smaller than a destroyer so no frigates. As motor torpedo boats are smaller than frigates I wouldn't hold your breath until you see a frigate in the game.

Seeing them in a normal battle scenario would more than likely never really be a thing but...

Perhaps some special scenario or event much like the Halloween or Dunkirk missions that could allow you to pilot smaller ships to go up against a much larger target could be fun. Maybe a boss battle of sorts?

Well that's just how I've always thought about it.

OP, go put a burning Izumo sideways where the sun don't shine. :Smile_teethhappy:

Not now, not ever, except in a Dunkirk-like operation as bot opposition.

I would say not likely. Saw your Avatar on a review for The Golf Club 2 in steam the other day. I take it you are TheGreatDrive'o too then? Was that you? Different name but same Avatar.

Back in my day, we had cardboard counters on the kitchen table and a pair of dice.

You youngsters don't know how good you've got it!

You do remember the German PT boats from Operation Dynamo?  Two-hit wonders.  At scale, they would be half the size of our DDs and have maybe 2k to 3k health.  What would you contribute to the team driving one of those?  You can do a search and read the challenges in the numerous other threads on this.

Let's hope never. WG has a difficult enough time balancing the in game ships now.

I have actually driven a PT boat before, I can say with certainty that WOWS has siad Not happening before. We will only see them as targets like the S boat or MAS boats above.

Did you play the Dunkirk scenario? In it you essentially got to battle the German equivalent of PT boats.

How ancient are we talkin here?

 

As a PT bote enthusiast, I don't think the will (or should) add any new classes to the game. Small boats wouldn't really work at the scale here. They're coming to that other WWIIish vehicular shooter though, so...

WG stated there would be no playable PT boats; the smallest would be Destroyers. PT boats as AI enemies however, is a different story, which they said they would do, and have done for the Dunkirk op.

And we had to trudge five miles uphill through snow to get to school. Both ways.

Devil's advocate; you could probably do quite a lot with them if detection was also halved...3km or less?  Make them undetectable by radar outside 6km, WG is pretty good at creating its own reality. And of course unlimited torpedo ammo as on DDs would be right in there with the arcade action!
