radar World of Warships: Das Boot — submarines will launch in 2019

World of Warships: Das Boot — submarines will launch in 2019

Quote:
Wargaming is about to introduce submarines in World of Warships, the multiplayer World War II naval ship shooter that has more than 1.5 million monthly active players. The developers will also redo aircraft carriers in a way that makes planes and ship combat more accessible to players, according to a briefing by Alexander Nikolaev, publishing director for North America for World of Warships.

The changes represent a lot of risk for Wargaming when it comes to the reaction from the 28 million players who have registered since 2015. More than 300 developers in Austin, Texas, and elsewhere are working on the updates. World of Warships players will get a taste of submarine combat with a Halloween update that includes the fanciful Nautilus submarine from Captain Nemo and Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Sweet mother of god, this must be the April fool's joke!?! Wait, it's not April? So Neal, I trust you were in the front row, asking questions, unless you don't do Austin? So, assuming this is true, starting timer now on the first submarine nerf. If you listen closely, you can hear the BB players whining now. As much as I love/hate WoWs, hopefully subs will break up the upper tier games of the @#$^%^%$^&*^&*#&#$^%$%^&^#%ing campling cruisers and BBs. Any match above tier VII should be called "World of Camping ships."

Curious how they will model the ocean floor (if they do), in regards to the plethora of islands this game has. If anything, if this breaks up those radar spamming, island humping campers....I mean cruisers that camp behind islands (in the upper tier games), it will be a welcome change.


Oh to be a game tester for this and have some real input on what happens. I do shudder at what they will have for upper tier subs?

They did finally cave in and hope it leads to all the different classes...so I expect to see more of you in the WoW forums as well as here. I use C_D for my user name in WoW North American server, I did not want to be Iceman598771123547411 lol

Actually I know they could use input/guidance, and real life experience that is found here in great supply and support from the submarine community such as Subsim.

this will all be just another Wargamming F up.........trying to balance this game out and getting rid of this camping epidemic will prove to be out of reach for the minds at wargaming.

I founded the clan called Canuk on WoWS's.

oh and to Iceman, look us up please and apply if you wish.............and others.

So I tried it...didn't really like it. Maybe it was the format? In regards to camping, I don't understand why they don't use the open ocean map more? Oh, wait, you can't camp! I love the open ocean map, the game totally plays different. No islands to camp behind. I seriously hate upper tier games, <tier7. There's upper tier stupid and lower tier stupid. Not sure which drives me more crazy. I was in a T10 match a few days ago, 5 ships (CAs and BBs) hiding behind one, tiny island! lol I smurfing live to put torp spreads into these camping chumps.

I found the steam punk subs to be complete bullocks. It was fantasy so you could get away with submarines going way faster than they would but if they try to do this in the regular game the best they could hope for is everyone with a Walter submarine. Nothing else is going to go fast enough to be effective. The fact that they were only giving you 1 - 2 minutes under water before you ran out of air was just laughable.

The OCEAN map is the only good one they have. I get it how ever. It is supposed to be fast paced shooter game. Most matches never go the whole 20 minute limit. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a submarine however. I can remember having multiplayer matches in 688 that went for hours hunting someone down. I like that idea better.

I imagine they will then be forced to do something with the ash can eye candy on the back of the DD's to make up for the submarines?

I still haven't found anything that beats Silent Hunter.
