U-boats - Time has come

I've just finished the excellent book Blackett's War, about u-boat warfare and allies desperate measures to defeat them during WW2, or be defeated. Uboats were THE naval story of WW2 and deserve to be in the game. It would also add fresh life into what has become a stale, repetitive game... stuck in a pattern of introducing simple variations of new ships. If planes can be in this game, surely u-boats could be figured out.

Uboats were DEFENITELY NOT THE naval story of WW2 and DO NOT deserve to be in the game. WARGAMING has said NO to submarines on many occasions.

Moderators please shut down this thread.

On a more serious note, we all know that subs played a very major role in WWII, and so does WG. Their contribution is not blind to anyone, either the U-boats that terrorized the Atlantic or the American hunters that made the Pacific run red. However, as much as we all wish to play them, there is just simply no way to impliment them as a balanced and interesting PvP game component as well as problems with the game engines. My best bets are on implementing AI submaries as a scenario feature and work from there.

While I agree that U-boats were a fascinating and integral part to navel action in WW2, and that submarines in general contributed quite a bit, they unfortunately won't be a playable ship type in World of Warships.
Frankly, we already have a group of ships which plays the part of sneaky, torpedo based hunters.
