PSA: Don't bother with the PTS client to test subs unless you're bringing a division with you.

I saw Flamu's sub video and installed the PTS client to test them out for myself (this took a LONG time, like, hours). You have to beat the Halloween 2016 escort mission one first and then it's supposed to unlock the other. Got 5 stars with it and, oh, right, the sub one is not the "of the week" one so it requires a division to play it.

[edited]. Lame.

Yep, I noticed that yesterday. Need a Division to try the Subs, which sucks..... Wargaming !  :Smile_izmena:

 

Edit: Never mind. The Operation of the week changes every half hour to an hour. Just got to wait for it.

Would have been nice to put that little detail in the patch notes, though.  :Smile_hiding:

The Operations don't change every hour as in past PTS's?

EDIT:  Just logged into the PTS for the first time.  Horror of the Deep was the Operation of the Week.  Just completed my first sub battle.

I am not sure I got the PT uploaded and jumped right into a game with the sub.  I sucked badly, and didn't really like the play style.  But I have only tried once and it just felt clunky to me.  I think it is typical and it rotates the missions every 30 minutes or so on the PTS or I am getting it wrong.  Maybe mine game was glitched but I can get into the sub game every time I try to run the Halloween mission.  I wish I could run a DD though.

That one is not the Operation of the Week, hopefully they will switch them around over the time the PT runs.

You can play the Barracuda right out of the gate. No Div required.

You can play the subs without a division.  There are three halloween events on rotation (the two previous, and new sub event).  Each event rotates every hour or half hour, I haven't figured out which yet.  If you log in the PTS and can't play the sub event just wait until you get to the sub op.  Play the current event in the meantime.

OK, that is nice to know and they should have made that known.

I think what would help is if we could use the subs in the Training Room when the Halloween event hits the live server. Just too much difference in their play and learning the ship & controls while playing the scenario is only going to lead to lots of salt.. Ok more salt than normal anyways. Being able to play with them in the Training Room would be a huge help.

Add to that you have to 5 star the previous missions to unlock the other subs. So yeah useless for anyone not in a division.

You do not need a Division to play with subs. The Scenarios rotate every half hour to hour, so just wait a bit and try again. Or play other battle modes until the Horror of the Deep is available.

It looked like I could make a training room and take out the Halloween ships, but unfortunately, you can in the PTS. This would be good for the live server as the sub are different.
