Ok, first of all, I want you to know 101% of players agree with me. Got that?

Good. Now for the content.

I was just hiding inside a smokescreen that was one circle big(Cuz the smaller the better, right?), and then a Nicholas' torpedoes hit and killed me. SHould not have to put up with this sub [edited].

I think he's trying to make a point in an indirect fashion, but strayed a little too far into the obtuse.

I actually look forward to subs so you aren’t speaking for the player base. Secondly, smoke screens are torp magnets. I’m not sure how that relates to subs but if you get blind torped in smoke it’s a perfectly reasonable game mechanic

Thirdly, I think your autocorrect needs a damn good smack in the face. :Smile_veryhappy:

I think what he's trying to say is that if a destroyer with torpedo range less than its best detection can torp you undetected in your smoke, concern about submarines is misplaced.

Troll post. OP knows good and well there are no subs, and he also knows the lunacy of the DD tactic described. 
Perhaps he should have used a sarcasm font?

Lol I saw as soon as I smacked submit, thanks and corrected. However, perhaps I can purchase said magnets for wife and just see what happens

The point of this post is me role-playing a noob who assumes any torps that get launched by invisible ships are subs.

yeah I get it is sarcasm, but still can't really see the point of it... there's lack of context, if it was a particular chat funny you should have included a screenshot or some other reference. Your sarcasm rating is potato level.

I mean, back when the Truth was that submarines were never going to be added to WoWS, I always argued that they weren't needed because their niche was pretty much filled by torpedo focused destroyers (Mostly the Shima' line) whose gameplay was focused on stealthy torp ambushes with a limited time hiding in plain sight that was penetrated by hydroacustics (smoke) and that really subs would just feel a bit like a reskinning of that.

Oh and WoWS has an odd fixation with historical top speeds* and submerged subs were just too slow. 


Things change apparently.

*Even if ships are travelling in game over five times faster than the speed they say they are...

That's how good the WoWs Submarines are, they've been in the game for 3 weeks and none of you know they're even there.

A little too far? The OP passed Rod Serling a long time ago!

He's trying to preempt the disaster.

Doing the Lord's work as far as I'm concerned.
