While the mode got repetitive quickly, I do miss being able to farm the OP for Royal Navy missions/directives.  I think it will be interesting to see how WG implements subs when the finally hit the test server.

It was a test of the mechanics; they had to make it easy-ish.

I want to see what happens when we don't have fancy gimmicks and playing subs isn't tied to some other event. Then I want to see what tools they are going to give us to hunt them. Then I will make up my mind on whether I think they should ever be in PvP.  (As they stand right now? Nope. Much work to do. But a submarines op or mode without Halloween gimmicks is certainly something I would give attention to.)

My kids had one go each in the Zipper, in easy mode. They also were sad to see them go.

Should not be too long. CV rework needs to deploy. We then might see some more but now with ASW sytems in the mix. Next year for sure.

I can't wait to see the more realistic version they are probably planning for the main game. They should be a ton of fun and will be a good replacement as a different ship type for when the CV rework goes live.

They were a lot of fun.

A lot of work went into that event.  It'd be a shame if it didn't come back in some form.

Ensign Cthulhu Jr and Little Miss Squidling. 

 So far I have not been able to cajole Mrs Cthulhu to the keyboard, but I am working on it.

If submarines and ASW get their own separate mode, that's fine.

Keep them the hell out of Randoms and Co-op and Ranked and the current/main Clan Wars and so on.

Subs can come back in scenarios and ONLY SCENARIOS. Subs generally are a balance breakers (worse than CV). So Subs have no place in Random/Ranked.. As for co op its uncertain

I liked them too, and hopefully we'll get them back in the future... in some way (scenarios, own game mode, etc).

I wonder how much this has to do with the game mode, and how much has to do with the submarine. Overall, though, random battles tend to be rather grindy in and of themselves

Yeah, Looking forward to it. I feel like the game will finally be "complete" when we get full sub lines.

It is likely the odds are very high.

You have a choice of all these wonderful submarine games:

Silent Hunter

Silent Service

688(I) Hunter Killer

Cold Waters

Aces of the Deep

Red Storm Rising

SSN 21 Sea wolf

So why screw up the one good surface action game by introducing subs to it?  Not much choice for the rest of us "skimmers" and "Big Gun Admirals".

Indeed some good games there. 

I simply disagree that subs will screw up WOWS. I think it will add to the game in a good way. I think that WG has the same belief.

But the problem is they will not "Un-introduce" subs if it dose screw up the game.  WG will try to "Balance" the subs, and their history so far of "balancing " ships is not all that good (ok that's just my opinion, but we all know I'm not alone).

Because Wargaming disagrees with your opinion on submarines.

Why do people keep saying "when" instead of "if"?

Because WG didn't go to all this effort just for one Halloween event. They have bigger things planned.
