Atlantic Fleet in WWI?
 
Not sure if I'm the only one who thinks this would be fun, but I've been tempted to e-mail the devs and offer the suggestion. As the greatest naval war-gaming community I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

I like the idea. We really don't have enough WWI games, and the only WWI naval games I can think of are Jutland and Shells of Fury.

that would be neat:yeah:

Definitely - can't have too much of a good thing. Killerfish are at work already on the next game but there is life in the old AF sea-dog yet. ASW could do with a few realism tweaks (WW1 or WW2) but gun battles are what AF already does best and some Hochseeflotte -vs - Grand Fleet action would be...well, grand.

Yes, Atlantic Fleet WW1 - North Sea Fleet? :) - would be good. As in WW2 would be Mediterranean Fleet (add Italians and French and a two-way tonnage war) etc etc. Be a pity if the potential of the current game isn't developed a bit further.

Personally I wouldn't even mind seeing Pacific Fleet being ported over to Atlantic Fleets style. Come to think of it one thing I did enjoy a lot about PF was the base battles, they added a nice break up to the normal fleet battles.

Agreed, but they'd needto improve on the way carrier ops are implemented (no CAP, carrier groups always starting in gun range of enemies) - compared to AF-PC anyway, never played PF.

Victory at Sea is worth a go if you haven't already - somewhat basic ship models but continuous gameplay, covers the PTO as well as Atlantic and Med, and includes amphibious ops/land base attacks:

110% agree on the CVs starting WAY too close in AF. I read the readme for AF for the first time yesterday and apparently you can have CAP but you have to put up the fighters first, so basically your giving up 4 turns before you can attack with your CVs (ready fighters, launch fighters, ready bombers, launch bombers) it also says that while you can arm the fighters for strike they will be more effective if they are just armed with guns/cannons.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Gets my vote.

AF does gunnery so well it's almost tailor made for WW1 fleet actions.

They could take Pacific Fleet and make a "War Plan Orange" ala Atlantic Fleet.

Giesemaschine 05-22-2017 01:13 AM

I'd love to see a WW1 game done.

Well, only after Cold Waters is released and Pacific Fleet is ported to PC (with multiplayer:O::up::Kaleun_Thumbs_Up:)
