Submarine tease?

Heho - I decided to "tinker and scrounge" a little.....so I found this: https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/common/cbt-announcement/

 

Old announcement from wows (cbt) but I still find it amusing.

To me it hints of Submarines  (That be a german I belive) and considering the "April fools submarine" and the "ARP I-401 tease".

 

Truthfully ? I would welcome our submarine overlords (IF ONLY there would be a hard cap of 1 - 2 per side like cv) mainly because it would give Destroyers something more to do then to sit and fish in smoke all day and some cruisers aswell.....Also - Debt charges and hedghogs.  Cruisers with ASDIC / Hydro.  Much yes.   (Mainly because I want to HUNT the subs.....and stop DD's and cruisers from fishing instead of playing).

 

(I know thie announcement has nothing to do with subs but....long live conspiracy :)   running away now before the flames come)

edit: Changed the topic name to increase the fire a little - it started getting too cold :)

DDs are arguably the class that already has the most to do in this game - and the kind of DD whose gameplay is not a dynamic one... well, this probably means a 20km torp Shima captain - and such a player isn't very likely to ever learn to use (and start doing so) anti-submarine tools either.

 

Anyway, the biggest problem with subs is that they don't seem like they would really have a role in this game. What would they be, really - super stealthy, extremely slow DDs? Steel Ocean added them to WoWs-like game with some success, but I don't really feel like WoWs needs subs - and introducing them would require entirely new mechanics, while also being pretty hard to balance... Frankly, I'd prefer WG to first figure out how to balance the current different-than-all class (CVs) before asking if they could introduce another one.

It's just a joke...

The sub on the picture is the I-404.

I would not mind subs either.. Played a little game called Steel Ocean the other week just to test it and they actually have a working concept on how to include subs in the game (with full tech trees for them too), which is quite fun. But yeah, they should have a unit cap just like OP suggested. :cap_old:

As much as I wish that was the case, i-404 was a Sentoku-class sub - i.e. an Aircraft-carrying Submarine - and would've looked totally different.

If she was even built. She wasn't completed due to being bombed during construction.

to quote one of the WG employees about subs:
"NO!"

Eh, at this point I don't think WG's words hold up much. I mean they also said they were going to do something about the BB overpopulation a couple months ago ... or let's not forget the "year of the CV".

Imagine WG's board meeting, winter of 2017.

Guy 1: "How about submarines?"

Guy 2: "Absolutely f**king not."

Guy 1: "How about battleships with submarine consumables?"

Guy 2: "Hmm... might worth a try."

It was sunk in the carrebian. 

(i know this sub was talked about a hundred times already, still, always worth a mention) :Smile_smile:

It would give an extra dimension. The only porblem is that WG doesn't know how.

 

Of what they have tried the gameplay just is boring. It's just too slow.

 

But AI subs could solve the problem of passive in the back sniping BBs. :cap_haloween: 

 

The again AI bots can't be sold.:cap_money:

Bump

 

runs away, flailing my arms like a schoolgirl who see a bumblebee   :)

Dood, needy much? :Smile_hiding:

 

Anyway, as @ShinGetsu said, I can confirm that the sub in the 'Error 404' message is a TypeVII Uboot - of which U-404 was a member.

So, basically 'Error 404' is showing a picture of Submarine U-404 as a joke.

 

I wonder if Error 400 and 401 use the images of I-400 and I-401?

I think it would be boring if they all used the same image of a TypeVII...
