The ONLY way the new sub mode will work

Is to have it fully stocked with all the other ship types to get an accurate test.  The only way you can do that is to have a mission chain for each of the other ship types playing in that mode with significant enough rewards to compel them to play, especially BBs.  Otherwise you are going to have a queue with 90% subs, some dds and a few cas.

I got what you're going for here but title suggests you have a plan for sub's to actually work instead of a plan to get people to play other ship types to be able to properly test whether sub's will work or not.

It's a good idea but isn't getting any replies as after expecting it to be about 1 thing the actual thing it is about gets lost in the confusion.

Maybe go directly for "Missions for alternate ships in sub test mode will help get more accurate test results" right in the title.

A lot of people only read thread titles & skip them if it's "another 1 of those threads"...your title suggests it's another 1 of those threads.

But your suggestion is a good 1 so it should be considered which is why I suggested a new title...but also a new thread so it isn't knocked down the list before others can see it.

Start a new 1 w/my title suggestion (or thereabouts) & just copy/paste the content.

     When it first drops you're gonna have queues with ~90% subs regardless of mode.

     After playing with & against them a bunch on PTS, I'm really glad my old raiding guild on EQ2 is active again. :Smile_teethhappy:

I haven't been able to play in months so I wouldn't be able to respond to any responses if I started a thread on it.

Was just giving suggestions on how to get the idea out better...it's still a good idea :cap_like:

I played everything in the subs test. I like the idea of some missions for the new mode the test did have missions for other ships so... likely WG would do that again.

I for one will be bringing out Mutsu, Arizona, Perth etc many a time before sub queuing so we can try to get some good play testing done. I hope others do the same.

Play-testers on the Public Test Server (a couple of weekends ago) were able to play-test submarines and every other ship class in the battles that included submarines.

I played submarines for a while, to get familiar with them.

I also played BB's, Cruisers, DD's and CV's that were available for Tier-6 submarine battle match-making.  (Only Tier-6 ships were allowed in a submarine match, just to be clear.)

I don't recall seeing any premium ships during my play testing.  Several, but not all, cruisers were equipped with depth-charges.  All the DD's I played had depth-charges.

I've written more detailed impressions elsewhere on the forums, so I'll not repeat them here.
