    Public Test 12.1 - General Feedback

    Why would you want more rewards in credits? Wargaming give you a ton of credits to buy stuff with anyway on the test server. They give you a ton of gold too. Plus there are economic bonuses on the test server. I got some when I played on it. Plus I am pretty sure that the credit income etc is not the same as on the live server. Plus the Battle Pass rewards are not the same as the live server.

    Sorry, but you are wrong there mate. If you look a few pages back in this thread. You will see that Cuddly_Spider loves Submarines so much, that they are his top 3 or 4 most played ships. But if you also look back through this thread, you will see that he is constantly complaining that Submarines get easily killed by depth charges. In actual fact, he wants Submarines to have a lot more health, and he wants depth charges nerfed. Me personally feel the opposite. I rarely do damage to Submarines with depth charges. Esp the air dropped variety. Plus its even more rare, that I actually sink a Submarine with depth charges. Hence, that is why I said that, NO, Submarines do not need buffing.

    You can easily unlock and buy a tier 10 ship on the test server. Look them up in the tech tree. I think they all cost 1xp to unlock and are cheap to buy in credits. You still have to unlock the tier 9 first though.

    I really wish you would shut up about the stupid 800 metre radius on depth charges. In my experience depth charges hardly catch a sub. Let alone kill it. Esp the air dropped charges. I have hardly ever hit a sub with depth charges. Less than 10 times have I done damage to a sub with air dropped charges, and probably less than 5 times have I actually sunk a sub with them. So, NO, Subs DO NOT NEED A BUFF.

    I know what you mean about the development of Submarines. This is why in my mind, I am of the opinion that Wargaming will never be able to balance Subs properly. This is precisely why I hate them so much. They just do not fit into the game. No matter what tinkering Wargaming do. They will never fit into the game IMO.

    Oh, did you find something about the game that Sunleader didn't know about? What you have shown there is that the lower tier Subs actually have a closer homing cut off than higher tier Subs. So, doesn't that make it harder to shake off homing torpedoes in a tier 6 BB, as opposed to a tier 8 or tier 10 BB? Not by that much, but it does make it harder to avoid the torps in the lower tiers.

    75% of the test server is full of clowns playing stupid super ships.

    I had a good read through that guide. I did take particular note of the following notes in the guide: Every one of those 3 key values, a slow US BB does not have. Or any other slow BB for that matter. 1. Rudder shift time. You could take the steering gears mod to improve this. But that means dropping Damage Control mod 2, which reduces fires and flooding by a significant amount. 2. Turning Circle. Well, this is linked to speed and rudder shift time. So the above steering gears mod will improve this. 3. Speed. This is something that a slow BB does not have. There is not much you can do to improve your speed. A speed flag maybe. But I have found that since the economic rework, all signal flags that you can get for free, seem to be very rare now. I find myself running out of flags a lot of the time, and getting flags for free is now a lot harder. I could use the 3 free containers to get flags, but most players prefer to get coal containers for obvious reasons. So even after reading the fancy guide, I still think it is VERY hard to dodge homing torps in a slow BB.

    No, just go away and leave me alone. I am sick and tired of the Super U players on here telling players like me to "GET GOOD". or "YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT".

    Forget it pal. I will just do Wargamings "SIMPLE MANOEUVRES" I am not interested in learning from arrogant super U players.

    I wasn't arguing with you. Its obvious that you have the games in Subs to back up your claims. But Mr Arrogant does not have the games in Subs to back up his claims. Plus like the other guy said, "you don't really have to play Subs to know how to deal with them". But seeing as you are such an expert at Subs. Why don't you tell me how I can deal with a Sub, if I am playing in a tier 5 BB such as the Agincourt? My range of ASW plane attacks is only 6km, but a tier 6 Sub can just sit at 7km and ping / torp me with impunity. I cannot fight back with ASW, and I am so slow (22 knots), it is very hard to turn to avoid any homing torps. Hell there are even some high tier shifts with low range on air launched ASW. Answer me that please?

    God you are so full of your own importance. I know exactly how the stats work. They are on Wargamings web site for all to see. The fact of the matter is that you do not have the battles in Subs to justify your claims. Oh and how long have Subs been in early access testing? 2 years at least maybe? Its been over 3 years since Subs were announced by Wargaming. Yet YOU have only played 100 battles in testing and a big fat 41 battles since release (randoms). Oh and did you even bother to look at what ships I play? Cruisers, BB's and DD's is the answer, no Subs or CV's. So, no I am not a potato and I do not just play BB's. But feel free to make fool out of yourself, and continue to spout your crap on the forums. I shall be sure to add your name to my ever growing Black List.

    You know what I find hilarious? It's the fact that you bang on telling players like me to "GO PLAY SUBS". Yet you have hardly played them yourself. So, lets take a look shall we? Total games played in Submarines since full release = 41, HMM, that's not much lol. Total games in Submarines before full release = 100, that's not much considering you have over 6800 random battles played. Oh and apart from 1 battle in a Cahelot and a U-2501, all the rest of your Sub games since release have been in the U-190, a massive 39 battles. You haven't even bothered to play the U-69 either. I guess that one is far too low a tier for you eh? So, I think you are hardly qualified to state that you know how Subs work because you have played them a lot. Funny that isn't it?

    1. Stop calling me mate. I am not your mate. Never will be your mate. So stop it with the pathetic patronising. 2. You keep telling players like me to just go play Subs to find out. WELL HOW MANY FFING TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU I HAVE NO INTEREST IN EVER PLAYING ANY SUBMARINE IN THIS GAME. Get that fact, lodged, and stop telling us to go play Subs.

    I wasn't directly addressing you. It was a general comment meant to address Zuihou_Kai_Ni. But I will attempt to answer your arrogant, and frankly insulting comments. 1. I have tried many times in a slow BB to avoid homing torps. Probably 75% of the time I fail. Is that a skill issue? I would say it is not. You seem to forget that a very slow BB such as any of the mid tier US BB's are hard to turn. They are sluggish to respond to rudder imput, and they are slow as hell. So I and many other players find it hard to avoid the homing torps. It is a waste of time using your Damage Control to mitigate the sonar ping lock. The sub just pings you again. 2. The reason I don't play Subs has got nothing to do with my pigheaded stubbornness. I have no interest in playing Subs. I knew right from the start, that Wargaming will NEVER be able to balance them fairly. If they did, they would never have come up with the stupid homing torps mechanic in the first place. But Wargaming knew they would have to give Subs a gimmick to get people to actually play them. If I wanted to play a far better Submarine game, then I would go and play U-Boat or the Silent Hunter games. I have Silent Hunter 3, 4 & 5, and U-boat. 3. I can count on one hand, how many Subs I have killed with Air Dropped Depth Charges. Is that a skill issue? No it F_____g isn't. There is the silly banana thing on the surface that is never that accurate a location. There is also a big chance that you don't even spot the banana thing. Then there is the time it takes the planes to arrive and the time for the bomb to go off. The Sub can easily turn away to avoid this attack. But I am sorry, I thought you said that it was easy to kill Subs.
