I am sure on two separate occasions now I have seen a submarine's periscope during the game. Once in a random game when i was playing a DD, it appeared and disappeared inside a cap area I had just entered and again a few days ago when I was playing the Nelson and it appeared at the start heading parallel to my ship about half a mile away. Has anyone else seen this or am I losing my mind?

No, but I did take evasive action. I suspect the WOW staff are testing something.

afaik replays are activated by default since quite a few patches, just as the "print" button shouldn't be too hard to find. so, if ya wanna show us something, plz go on and show off.

well if not..............*grumbles on way out*

Hello, I'm a doctor. Step aside, please give us some room.

I wonder if they could make submarines work without wrecking what's left of the game play. But I do have fond memories of the time when I was trying to my best to dodge Kaibokans and their dive bombs and keeping a nervous eye on the dive instruments....:fish_happy:

Would be priceless if it were actually true....but not really of import since we can't properly detect and fight them yet. The depth charge racks/launchers/mortars and Hedgehog launchers s on DD and CL are mere models now.....but a little too detailed modelled for specific ships to have no purpose at all i suppose.

 

But i have seen more "work in progres" ships tested that are not in game yet. And these did do damage.

Looking at the latest news topic it seems I get the last laugh. I wasn't joking, It wasn't an April fool. I did see a sub and now we know why.

No....

 

You didn't see a sub on live server in a pvp game or what ever other game you think you saw. They will be tested on a test client, you need to download this specifically, and on a test server. 

 

But nice try bud.

Super testers and WG staff have had Subs for ages.. There is no such thing as a detonation in game mechanic its a Dastardly tester in a sneaky under water boat.. with torps with a surface detection of 0.1km.. If you quick you can see them just before you blow up. :Smile_hiding:

No. 

 

The gane files in april did not contain proper submarine models, only the comedy ones for the event. 

 

Plenty of maps have dynamic NP models like flights of plane, moving ground-based elements (trucks, etc), maybe for the april event there could be periscopes randomly spawned into matches with no submarine attached. 

Or it could have been an artifact of your PC having a conflict with the game. 

Or it could have been a fignent of your imagination. 

 

Whichever it was, you taking evasive action was beyond stupid, as a ship class that wasn't officially introduced couldn't have been in that battle and influence its outcome. Whatever isn't in the teamlist isn't.

You think they weren't tempted to live test in a recent update? have you looked at the code size increase of the updates recently, who knows whats in there!
