A thought for submarines

Imagine if you will, a war where submarines traveled across vast oceans to strike suddenly at enemy shipping.  Let's call that "World War Double-check", because .. well it came right after "The war to end all wars" .

Imagine if you dare people playing a naval battle fantasy game with some folks liking to stay at the very back edge of the map and fire salvos with impunity because .. well because WASD doesn't seem to work on alot of battleships in said game.

Now, if only there was a way to punish those (insert bleeps).

If only submarines were faster. OR ... OR what if to simulate the fact that submarines patrolled far and wide, WHAT IF submarines deployed near the enemy back edge. 

Then the campers gotta move up or the DDs gotta move back and risk losing caps ....  

How deliciously spicy you say. YES.

What are you insinuating?

Wait, what are you infering?

Thou must infer good sir. I can only imply.  Suggest would be more accurate.

A submarine or two up the jacksy will surely create movement and reduce stagnation in the enemy fleet.

Imagine if the submarine can launch superweapon that can anahilate opponent player port.

but imagine the dynamics it brings in .. people can't snipe unopposed on the back line.  DDs get more choices to cap vs radar or protect the back line, further from air attack. The Cv has to move and either go after back line dds vs all the AA rather than just assume the dd will be capping. Everybody gets to use WASD and have less static gameplay.

 

Or we can just stay with sniping and radar meta. That everyone screams on the forums about. 

 

 

You know in the real world battles didn't always happen where both sides lined up and hid behind islands shooting at things another ship spotted with no visual? Stuff got thrown together, stuff arrived late, there were surprises. There was no MM in the real world. 

Let the game become exciting again.

Vote submarines deploy randomly on enemy back line. (Or make it a deployment choice, enhance the dynamics even more.)

Yes. A brillant suggestion. Indeed the End Times is upon us when sanity in suggestion prevails. Is the shark the herald of your coming?

Right now the gameplay is stagnant. For all the suggestions people make *cough*cvreducestagnation*cough* this is actually better. However it will be torpedoed by the chicken bbabies that it will make subs OP. It will make playing CA/CLs/DDs much more meaning full and hopefully reduce the excessive numbers of bbs in the makeup. If you want to play BB, then you risk death by sub torps by staying that far back.

Much as I like your suggestion @Tagnbagwg is going to water it down just like CV. CV is supposed to be a BB counter but has been watered down to play spot/shoot the DD and farm the damage.

Man I'd post a gif commonly used in WoT forums but that is far too risque for WoWS.
