Been in some fun talks with friends and clan mates....after submarines get up and running in the game, what class of "ship" might be next?

Not talking new destroyer or cruiser lines, but what "class" of battle vehicle might be thought of?

 

I'm gonna say blimps/dirigibles :Smile_popcorn:

Idk if they can add anything new. Hard to make new, easy to play bully classes without affecting the existing and soon to be existing easy to play bully classes.

armed Hovercrafts, inmunes to torpedos, very high concealment and can go over terrain to troll those island campers.

What the ever living F did I just watch?

That is SPECTACULARLY hilarious!

Almost as impossible as this:

Oh the new "thing" will be missiles. It will open the door to all the modern ships.

On the ridiculous side, you could have PT boats deployed from a carrier/tender/mothership the same way CV works, but with PT boats, that would be fun.

Does anything other than PT/E/MT boats even fit the platform?

Edit:  Without going to modern ships.

What happens after Subs comes out?  Warships falls behind Warplanes in popularity.  Like CVs, there is no design that will not piss off a significant part of the player base.

At great risk of WG taking the following seriously....

Well.. they've already tested the E-boats in the Dunkirk scenario. A new game mode just for those, PT boats, MTBs, etc would be fun, but sadly WG seem to have little interest in new game modes.

What about support roles?  Like a repair ship.. or something.  It would have a bank of HP to distribute to any ship close enough to it. Maybe high armor, great AA, and a one barrel, powerful primary armament (medium reload time). Kinda like what we see in the Operations, on the same principle as a medic in Battlefield.

For me, maybe a return to iRacing. Maybe.

YMMV

I missed that event :Smile_unsure:. But don't worry, no need for new game modes (nor like there is any chance of that happening). You can introduce them in randoms via a mothership with CV like mechanics. You spawn little PT boats and have fun wrecking all preexisting game balance.

I'm gonna say blimps/dirigibles :Smile_popcorn:

In past forum topics & discussions some suggestions included:

Playable Repair Ships
Playable Seaplane Tenders 

The blimp/dirigible idea has been previously mentioned, too.  It has an element of fun.  But one would have to stay far away from AA fire.  :-)

People have also mentioned interest in rescuing downed pilots and ship crews as part of an operation or during a match to earn points for their team.

Those would be interesting :cap_win:

bold to assume the game will be alive after subs, what with just about everyone and their mother hating them
