We had a ship convoy escort mode for surface ships, which was ok but not great. What would make this mode great is to have just attacking subs vs escorting DDs and to expand the number of escorting ships to at least 20 ships. Subs are currently removed from the game because WG feels they are not popular enough. I personally think that subs are not fun enough because they dont match the speed and action of the surface ships. I think that a lot of the userbase is afraid that WG is going to make subs OP like CVs to make them more appealing to play. The solution to all this is to put subs in their own mode where they can play a slow stealth mode type of gameplay which would make them fun, and attacking cargo ship convoys would be perfect for this. The surface ships convoy escort mode was not that fun because there was too much luck involved in being in the right place at the right time to attack the convoy, so the strategy was mostly luck. But with sub vs DD the gameplay would be perfect for attacking/protecting a convoy.

At that point, just go play Silent Hunter 4 :Smile_coin:

I love the SH series and wish to hell that Ubisoft would update those games. The graphics looked photo-real 10 years ago and now they look ancient. However SH uses extreme real time ship speed, which means subs have a top speed of 7kts underwater, which means it takes an hour just to make an attack on a convoy and maybe get 1 or 2 ships.

I used to play SH3 with a mod pack that made it much better.

pat first sight of an enemy plane you had to dive or risk being badly damaged if not sunk.

 

tried SH4 and could not learn the interface etc.

 

I think few things need to happen for subs:

- they start the march in random places on the map (due to their speed)

- they acquire points credits etc at a faster rate which may or may not translate to other types of ships

- limit underwater view distance
