So why are you ignoring the immeasurable calls by numerous players to abandon subs and focus on desired improvements and focuses like operations, maps, and ya know actually balancing ships to make the game more playable and enjoyable?  And don't come around in a few months blaming communications gaps which you've now clearly stated in your QnA as not being an issue for you guys.

...retirement coming in 10.8 I think. Even if this goes extremely poorly, like I think it will, I am pretty sure they are still going to ram-rod it down our throats like the CV and Commander Skill rebork.

"To counter hostile subs, make use of the Hydrophone—a consumable designed to detect submerged submarines over long ranges."

I thought the hydrophone was removed in earlier tests?

No need to retire if you enjoy playing shooty boats. As so many say: "Adapt your playstyle with the new arrivals." So while yoloing is not a very good strategy in a proper WoWs match, once subs are in the game adjust to hitting "W" four times and see how much damage you can do before you die, "A"ing and "D"ing as you can. You've both 'adjusted' to the additions while still shooting boats. Easy.

Oh, this is going to be entertaining watching how the Ranked community reacts to this!

:Smile_popcorn:

I put 24 torps into a Kansas with my T8 sub on PT and it survived.  I can't wait to see the reaction from players who are watching their Ranked season go down the tubes. T8 subs are terribly balanced - damage wise. The most effect I had with them was scouting, base capture and engaging other subs. T6 were better.  Never got to try my T10 subs as they stupidly had them limited to Ranked (Gold League only) 

I should buy some stock in Charmin® ... the butt hurt is going to be huge :Smile_teethhappy:

Well, here's to the end of WOWS - the mass exodus shall soon be upon us.  Countless players have stated that when subs come to Randoms, they are out, and for me this article confirms that is EXACTLY what's happening:

Submarines have made quite a journey, going through six open and a gazillion closed tests since they were first announced back in 2019. Adding a totally new type of ship to World of Warships requires extended testing by a wide and stable audience in Random Battles. Testing them on a standalone server or in a special game mode would simply not give us a broad enough picture.

However, we don’t want submarines to "surface" in the most populated type of battle just yet."

In other words -- they're coming to Randoms eventually whether you like it or not, regardless of the issues WG's had with balancing them against ships that aren't DDs, and all of the other problems...

Here's what I am going to do:  completely ignore any and all subs......  Even in the game.  I don't care if they are there and will play as if they aren't.....  And, if that means the match is a loss, so mote it be. 

If our host is this gehenna bent on destroying this game........well, stupid is as stupid does............and, we all know:  you can't fix stupid.  I will refuse to participate.

That is all a player can do.

Because the players don't have skin in the game. If WG did everything you want it to do and the game failed and everyone at WG lost their job, there would be no consequences to you. Your life would go on. 

So long as this is the case, you don't get a say. When it's your money and your job and your ability to keep a roof over your head on the line, then you get a say.

WG thinks by forcing Subs and CV's on players it's a success.  Submarines will be another reason for me to stop playing this game.

I figure putting my head in the sand is the plan...

So I am think along the lines of starting a training room type of tournament, something for just having fun with other like minded layers that really dont want to play with gimmicky ship, ADHD, basement dwelling, cowards (CV's and Subs).

We could meet every Friday and try to balance the teams by skill level, type of ship they want and there attitude.  I would be willing to put up doubloons to the HP winners of the night or award doubloons to a player that all vote played the best.

I am sure WG will eventually put a stop to it, but at least we could have some fun for a couple of months before they do.

The ship nightmare:

 

Being attacked from all 3 dimensions. Above, at the surface and below.

Actually on the test server the bot subs weren't horribly bad in submerging regards.

It appears that the only place where "FUN" is still* allowed is Tier I and II ... for now

Will probably pen the ever loving crap out of them, but will probably be hard to hit.

On the PTS the GK secondaries were quite effective on subs.....Sunk one at about 11.5 clicks.....
