Star Shells?

Star shells were a big thing back in the day. I don't see why they can't be implemented into WoWs. At first I thought they would be good as another shell type but that would probably be too OP. Maybe a consumable for DD's and CL/A's? Once you activate the consumable it fires in the direction you're looking, it could detect anything in a 3km radius and burn over the target for 15-20 seconds? Maybe if WG introduces night battles (which I think they should). Obviously a very loose, unbalanced idea, but I think it could work.

maybe if we had an actual Night mode ?   but Star Shells are pretty much pointless.  we have Radar,  Hydro ( all that can see thru islands)   CV planes..

They had star shells in one of the PVE operations... It seemed like it might be for testing and potential future implementation but I haven't seen anything else about them.

Possibly. Star shells might also be effective during severe weather like thunderstorms.

We don't have true night combat in WoWS.  Operation Cherry Blossom in the game simply has the gamme turned down, and the star shells used in that PVE operation are purely scripted and something not fired by the bot ships.

 

There is no true night combat elements to Cherry Blossom.

This is true- I neglected to add that part. They're in game... but not actually used by the ships. I did, however, hope that was a stepping stone to somewhere darker... or lighter? Whichever.

@Iron_Salvo921 they could be added as a consumable in place of def AA, hydro, radar, spotter plane, smoke, speed boost or reload booster.

When activated they could be fired automatically at the same time and in the direction the main batteries are fired.
