After a decent day's PvPing up around Danish/Swedish waters (three engagements, three kills), a small Swedish squadron decided to come out and do something about the Conny in their waters.
Comprised of a Buc, and two Frigates, the Swedes refused to get careless, and as such, I was not able to obtain an advantage. For an hour-and-a-half, we played the Chain Game; me running downwind, and them unable get a good shot at me. Four minutes from the end of the battle timer, the two well-handled frigates made an attempt at boarding me, which I narrowly avoided. At three minutes remaining, they decided to just finish off one side of my ship. I started taking water at 2:30, and after drawing them against wend (to prevent boarding) I dropped sails and hoped my pump to last. As you can see, it barely did.
Thanks to [SAAA]Tord Torskfejs (Buc), [SAAA]Ramn (Frig), and [SAAA]Gunnar Grogg (Frig) for the crazy fight.
Also, I did manage to kill a Trinco by his own fort, so that was cool.
Kill/capture for today:
- 3 heavy frigates
Boarding Attempt Escape
Constitution 1 (kill 1) Constitution 2 (kill 2) Fort's Friendly Fire (kill 3)
Having been absent from the game for a bit over a month, some newly acquired free time (and a newly-acquired ship) has given me the opportunity to explore the North-Eastern stretches of the map. Apparently, the French/Swedish/Danish alliance is not supportive of exploration, and as such I was also presented with the now rare chance to PvP!
I was attacked twice (in my Conny) by two separate Surprises... Thanks to [ER]Armand De La Croix and [HRE]Quios for the battles!
New ship's current capture/kill record:
- 2 light frigates
- 1 support ship
