World of Warships adds submarines to ranked, a new Dutch cruiser to early access, and an anime crossover

It’s been a long time since World of Warships first announced the arrival of submarines to the game in 2019, and over the course of many rounds of testing, tuning, and talking, the time has come for subs to finally make their way to the game in full. Sort of.

Update 0.10.7 has indeed brought submarines to the game, but only to ranked battles as the devs still want to ensure that things are well balanced. The ranked mode will allow players to try out these fragile yet stealthy ships and their unique gameplay mechanics, or allow others to try out anti-submarine munitions like anti-submarine defense aircraft for certain battleships or depth charges available to many light destroyers or some light cruisers.

For those looking for more surface-level combat, the second round of Dutch cruiser early access is also live, letting players construct the Tier VIII ship De Zeven Provinciën at the new Dockyard through 24 shipbuilding phases. If you prefer less history and more anime, there will soon be a crossover with the sci-fi anime Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These that will let players dress up ships in camoflauges inspired by battleships in the series. Finally, the USS Missouri is making a return to the game after having been adjusted to sit at an equal economic level with other Premium Tier IX ships.

The game’s latest patch notes have all the details while a summary of submarines in ranked can be found below. Get it? Below? Hahahah.

Well spoke too about WG’s scumbag underhanded actions, they’ve topped themselves
Just watched pretty much nearly all the best known Community Content Creators (Jingles , Flambass,Mr G, ChaosMachineGR etc ) resign after they way WG treated one of their fellow CCs (and a great person that contribute a hell of a lot to the game)

I would not recommend anyone spending any money on this game and with the disreputable company that run it

Submarines – As a veteran WoWs player that is mainly co-op (where subs have been introduced) and having put many hours in already on the current update I can honest say if one thought the response was more positive than expected you must have been expecting a response to be really through the floor. Most of the post on the official forums are pretty much saying the same thing – Subs don’t work ,
they didn’t work on test server (which was pointed out then) and are boring to play (both playing as and as ships fighting against). They have ,among other ‘improvements’ ( worse BOT AI ever) that WG have made, totally wrecked the Co-op game to the point people are abandoning it

And that’s even before taking into account some of the other sneaky underhanded actions that WG have been trying to pull recently

The coop game has been dead for a very long time – it’s always been a tacked on addition for players who want to try out a new ship. No one ever played it seriously, and the fact you call yourself ‘mainly coop’ leads me to believe you’ve barely scratched the surface of WoWS. As a player since pre-public alpha, subs are a complicated addition that they’ve yet to get right, they keep changing the mechanics, and hopefully will land at something playable eventually.

This might as well be the dictionary definition of “gatekeeping”.
Seriously, wtf?

I’ve no idea what you’re trying to say…

Been at WoWS for about 6 years (Alpha Tester), but not a hard-core player. Submarines are quite a decisive subject. Wargaming has been testing them for at least 2 years. There are still some bits to be pressed out, but the response has been (generally) more surprisingly positive than one would have thought. Personally, I think it’s great.

USS Missouri is back… in a lootbox. Shitstorm at eleven.
