No way! The fact that convoys have some defense against subs is great, because a sub single-handedly sinking 37 ships is not realistic. And if we can't have convoys moving while attacked by a sub, we'll have this.

I think he's talking more about keeping the Submarine's strength, since I believe it has lost a few decimal points worth.
As it is other units (naval and convoy) are becoming better at defending themselves against subs. Or he could be talking about the increased upkeep of the subs.
Personally, I have no opinion of the submarine nerf, I'll have to play it out to see how it affects my playstyle.
