WoWs Supertest: Submarines



World of Warships Development Blog

Back in 2018 many of you have participated in the operation called ‘Terror of the Deep’. This event allowed everyone to try a new class in our game — submarines. By the end of the event, it became clear that our players are highly interested in submarines and we should be engaged in full development.

And now, we are happy to announce that the first stages of closed testing will begin shortly, where the new gameplay of submarines will be tested. The American and German submarines will be the pioneers of the new class.

After the SuperTest submarines will be available for players to try on a special server, before being added to the main game client. Once introduced, the new class will initially be available in a special separate battle type only and this final configuration stage will last for several months. This will allow us to make additional changes to the new class under the conditions of the live server.

We will be sharing more details with you shortly. Follow our official game channels for more news!

WoWS: ST, changes to test ships


Will be posting more of these in the future:


French destroyer Siroco, tier V:

  • Detectability range by air is lowered from 3.36 km to 2.7 km;

  • Main Battery Reload Booster and Engine Boost consumables are changed place. Now, Siroco’s consumables are arranged in the same order as the researchable French destroyers.

French destroyer Vauquelin, tier VII:

  • Detectability range by air is reduced from 4.38 to 3.51 km.

French destroyer Kleber, tier X:

  • Detectability after firing main guns in smoke is increased from 3.3 to 3.63 km.

Detectability ranges by sea, and after firing main caliber guns in smoke, for French destroyers is corrected considering the basic detection range from sea.

French cruiser Colbert, tier X:

  • Detectability range by air is increased from 6.0 to 7.41 km.

Soviet cruiser Smolensk, tier X:

  • Detectability range by air is increased from 5.64 to 7.41 km

When using skills and upgrades for lowering detection range, the AA gun range of Colbert and Smolensk was larger than the detection range by air. This allowed these cruisers to turn the AA off and activate it when enemy planes are already inside the AA zone. The changes will remedy this situation.

Statistics prone to change.
