None, I think. A combination of game balance and being too unwieldy to use. These were all fixed launchers. 

 

Most of them were removed during pre-WWII modernisation anyway, WWII-early 50s period being the main era of focus in WoWs.

WG guys always said, they would not do underwater launchers on BBs. So they will probably announce them right after the submarines are done:Smile_trollface:

that’s how they’ll balance BBs vs subs! BBs are getting sub seeking torpedos!

Underwater launchers are a WW I feature. In WW II not many ships had them any more. Nelson had m, Rodney is reputed to have fired torps at Bismarck during her final battle.

Hopefully none.  Seeing how certain IJN cruisers (you know, the high tier one)  have a good chance of firing their torpedoes towards friendly ships more often than enemy ships.

Personally I can see the appeal of the fixed torpedo tubes in the BBs that had them for those moments when I dodge someone's suicide run. However I can see why WG won't add them fixed torps have limited use and we already see  some questionable decisions from some battleship players (Tirpitz being a famous issue) desperate to launch torps no matter what. 

 

For those people who are not familiar with the fixed underwater launchers I provide the following pictures of inside HMS Rodney's torpedo room, and a diagram of HMS Hood where you can see it shown at figure 29 (near the bow).

Which year was that? It's very cute! Looks like tier 1/2 battles but with that amazing playground. Reminds me a bit of WoT 8bit event (or was it 16?). Such events which are less serious than the actual game are usually quite enjoyable,

I believe it was 2017?

The most fun event ever made by WG and they since then did not bring it back.

And did it offer anything to play more than 20 games? I love such events but they usually get boring soon because lack of variety.

No way for WG to monetize it so no chance.
