ASW Ratings on ships

Has anyone noticed that some ships in your port now have ASW ratings that vary with the ships as to number of depth charges and number per drop? It seems to vary  with ships so far my Guepard has a better rating than another ship I have, but forgot which one. But some of my DDs don't have any ASW abilities particularly the Premiums. I suppose that is a work in progress?

There was no acess to the sub game when I checked today, not that I am in any hurry.

All tier 6 DDs and four tier 6 CLs now have depth charges.

Not all DD's have ASW and there are far too many ships that have no sub counter.

During the last PTS I copied down all the data for ASW ships ... just checked against the live server, the top and bottom ships still have the same figures. 

I'll verify the others later, but I thought you might like to see how they stacked up before.

Reason only tier 6 DDs have ASW ratings is because subs are tier 6 only for the foreseeable future.

My experience in the test server was that subs were balanced so long as your depth charge equipped ships were still alive. As soon as they were sunk there wasn't much you could do about subs. They need to give heavy cruisers, BBs and CVs some way to harm subs or otherwise force them to surface.

But all the tier 6 ones do. And they are currently the ones that matter.

I must have been tripping because I thought I saw some when I was specifically looking at the tier 6 DD's, I am obviously losing what little I had.

I did my own worried double take when I saw your comment. I went and checked them all manually, they all have ASW.

Ah! Thanks for the info! :Smile_honoring:I thought I would try subs in the PTS some time ago but could never get in for one reason or the other. 

So it's limited to tier 6.

Maybe sometime

Nurnberg having no depth charges was a glaring issue.

It seems La Gal doesn't have them, either.

The former I played on PTS and was surprised she didn't have DC.  I didn't try La Gal, but she's not on that list.
