According to the latest Q&A, Daniil Volkov had this to say about submarines and World of Warships:

 

 We are seriously looking into the submarines, as they are in popular demand. They will probably not come in 2017, but likely at a later date. One alternative considered is having submarines as bots.

 

Looks like submarines are back on the map as a possible addition to the game as player-controlled, or perhaps bot-controlled, boats.

good, another easy kill for me

 

You sure about that?

 

I mean, unless your playing a DD or they're on the surface, i can imagine Submarines being a pretty tough foe to deal with while submerged.

Thermal patrol link. Sorry, I don't go to that site for reliable info, or even go to that site period. I'd rather get mine from a WarGaming Reddit, the Client Portal, WoWS Facebook, etc.. You know, an actual WarGaming/WoWS source.

 

That's just me though, anything else is a toss up...

 

EDIT: For clarification

Good, more variety of targets makes for a better game.

 

I never doubted the eventual addition of Submarines to the game,  it was simply a matter of time.

On one hand most dd's and a few CL's have depth charges rendered already on the ship.

 

On the other hand didn't WW2 subs only travel 3-6kts while submerged? And only fire a spread of 4 or 5 torps? I mean, could you imagine playing Silent Hunter 3 or 4 against ships that were as manueverable as WGs? I just don't see it being viable... then again it is an arcade game

I don't like the idea of subs, I don't see how it won't complete change the game into something else (I like the game now..mostly) Maybe as bots in PvE, cause I think PvE needs some spicing up..but does that mean we are getting depth charges too? Trolling for subs doesn't sound fun.

How the Community would respond if Subs were added:

BB PLAYERS: OMG wthINVISIBLE BOAT KILLS ME EVERY TIM. BUFF BB AGAIN GIVE RADAR .

CA/CL PLAYERS: K 

DD PLAYERS: I go FEST I CAN DODGE and drop depth charges now.

CV PLAYERS:  WHY ARE WE GETTING PUNISHED FOR PLAYING CV. GIVE RADAR.

 

Im pretty sure with the addition of subs WG would in my opinion have to almost completely re work the game as they would have to implement ways to kill submersed subs. And Im still very sure subs will never make it into the game. WG likes to troll.

Oh, look, another thread posting the same thing 20 other threads have posted the last few days!!! 

Given how the article was just posted today on the site, I'm not sure how 20 other threads could have possibly been made on an article that didn't exist.

Id think playing subs would be fun.

 

:trollface: Getting ram kills as a sub when you decided to return to the surface right under an enemy warship.

Why would CVs be punished?  They were a sub's worst enemy.

We dont need submarines. We dont need underwater destroyers that can't be countered by all but one class of ship.

Make it like a cyclone. But instead of cyclone, have the mission randomly spam massive numbers of torps constantly everywhere, simulating subs. Imagine the QQing!

Just no, no, and hell no - and I used to serve on the bloody things.

FCOL, WG can't even balance the four classes of ships they have now.

Don't fall for these Q&A posts.

"Kitakami will be back very soon."

Few weeks later in an other Q&A:

"We won't bring back the Kitakami."

only if the sub was AI controlled and was like an objective in a game-mode, allow me to explain: one team defends sub/ sub squad, other attacks it. subs submerge for long periods of time and will randomly pop up on map (surfacing) where it will be vulnerable for a min or two, then submerges once more, rinse/ repeat until either one team is destroyed or the subs are eliminated...subs don't fire and are merely moving targets/ objectives

either way WG plz DO NOT give subs to players, WAY too many issues with allowing them to be player controlled

Where's the guy who posts the ubiquitous WG "No Submarines" video everytime the word submarine is mentioned in the forums?


 

LOL


 

Yep, no submarines... until there are submarines. :trollface:
