Well firstly WG let me list the thinks I like in the latest sub test: 1. Graphics and modelling of sub and underwater terrain and Hydro acoustic ping, 2. Removal of Oxygen being replaced with Batteries. What I do not like: 1. Submarines outclass every other type of ship, 2. The Submarine cannot surface and remains impossible to hit at periscope depth, 3. They keep DD's spotted at all times even in smoke, 4. They travel faster underwater than on the surface, 5. As a surface ship if you are lucky and have HE you have very little to aim at when they are at periscope depth, 6. If you are a Heavy Cruiser or BB you cannot counter a sub, 7. British cruisers and Italian cruiser will become even worse with only access to AP and SAP that cannot hit let alone damage a sub, 8. The ping lock on to any ship is easy and the homing torpedoes that bypass torpedo protection and citadel the unfortunate target is doomed, 9. Battery lasts too long and recharges too fast, 10. Torpedoes do way too much damage, 11. DD's have enough to contend with already dodging CV's the sub's just make them unplayable, 12. Combine subs with CV's and every ship will clump together and just camp, 13. The surface ship has no indication that 1 or both pings have locked onto them so torpedo avoidance is difficult, 14. Once a sub maintains a ping the torpedoes can turn very quickly and unbelievably fast and are almost unavoidable In summary the SUB's will break the game if they are introduced as is, more so than CV's ever did.
For a long time I have been playing this game sporadically, and I logged on the other night to play. And what do i find?..Something WG said they would never ever introduce into the game. They said it repeatedly...No subs. But yet, there they are...steampunk ones at that... Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Yes they are coming for real and fresh. I dont know if this is a good news or bad news for you, share it down below! Remember that guy who wants submarines to be added into the game? His/her wish is about to came true. I will clarify some things or two : First off, they are adding Submarines for the halloween special event, i still dont know if Submarines will stay as a permanent line or not. Second of all, they are still WORK IN PROGRESS so expect some changes, nerfs and buffs. I said theres a chance subs will stay as a permanent line because they always used the Halloween and April fools event to test new mechanics / gameplays. Last but not least, to balance things out, Subs will have a different spotting mechanics underwater compared to spotting mechanics at the surfaces (obviously) Lets hope when it arrive it will be "balanced" as much as possible, im worried And yes, DD will play a role encountering these Submarines. So we can basically sums up that in 2019 there will be two new lines, the Submarines line and the reworked CV line. The reworked CV line is basically just a new class.
