    Battlefield V = Bad Company 3 (your thoughts)

    When there are more posts in nation news forum about another game something is going quite wrong with NA.

    In what way is Bartow flanked in this situation?

    The best explanation is ... they are not actually in the buildings. In fact, I believe there is only one battle that I know of... the Supply Raid battle of the Union Campaign, in which there is a building where troops can actually deploy inside the building. That is the only one I know of. There are also a few round'ish areas you can occupy that don't have flanks... I think they are like fields with fences... but there are very few of them. Now there are trenches and fortifications in which your troops will actually get in these areas and you can see that because they will deploy along the edges of these areas and will not be in a line formation. Even still, they can be flanked. So, for the vast majority of the battles, troops get cover bonuses for being deployed in terrain, whether that be in corn fields, forests, towns, etc., however, the unit still is vulnerable and can be flanked. Doesn't matter where they are, if your troops are in line formation even in the middle of a town, they are still vulnerable to flanking. If they are in entrenchments they can still be flanked. That is just the way the game works. It's a simulation, so you just have to go with the flow. Mind you flanking is a very bad situation to be in. If you get the "Flanked!" warning, you have to determine if the position is really worth holding. Most times, all you have to do is hit the "fall back" button and the brigade will move out of danger, and a lot of times they only have to move a tad to keep from being flanked. Good luck with your gaming!

    where a battlefield V thread become Post Scriptum... it's time for a post Scriptum server so that when we can't see to fight in port battles, we'll just do a game of PS to settle our problems.

  6. at the moment we have a timer for a certain area( the timer circle with a distance and position ) but what about only a timer to react / for the one who wants to join a battle, the timer is in effect within a certain wide distance per chip tagging players/ ships/ get /have a timer> to react of +/- 10 seconds in OW (when a ship is tagged by a player [for the tagger](tagging small fast ships have a smaller tag distance - big ships have a big tag distance circle ) (also small ships can have a shorter tag timer - and big ships a bigger tag timer) also no distance in the battle area, but a battle in shooting range only a 1 minute distance from the initial tagger for the joiners of a tagged battle the timer area is as far as you can see in ow what means you can pick a fight within the time limit of the timer,- when a player tagged a ship (active tagging) the purpose of this it will create more and even fights in the battle area and also more single fights after the 10 seconds the timer closes and closed for late reactions,.. benefits : no br deniel - more fights - no drawn in battles anymore - you have control of your fights. (this is excellent for screening use - and/but not the port battle timer we keep that as it is) you have to react faster this way, specially groups.. any ideas or comments please react.

    More content to game!!

    As much fun as extra details to the OW would be its something that will be forgotten about soon, its the polish. Things like UI and core game features need to be refined, then the polish. But anyway would be nice to see at some point.
  12. To be fair both exists. Join a battle in front of Mortimer on Pirate side (or probably any capital on national side) and you will get messages - and I quote various players here - like: "Really?" "WTF why not against pirates?" "Why man, I'm just here to farm marks". Ofc there is also those desperately searching for any pvp. E.g. the area between Tortue, Navasse and Mortimer should offer some targets. What if you don't find them? Ah damn whats our options? Really the safe zone? You know what's it gonna end like. Okay let's have a look but we won't fight inside the zone. Half an hour and three attempts to get some foes leaving the safe zone you either end up leaving or lowering your expectations from a somewhat controllable fight to one inside the zone where its pretty sure that you get wrecked. But hey it's PvP so still better than no fight at all.

    Flags, Ensigns, Banners

    @admin a nice way to implement it is that the nation flag is the same so you wont get confused in battles (even though colors and names are there), but you can change the main mast flag to an other flag which you have gained through achievements? for example: Win an epic event fight with atleast 1 second rate and the reward is for Prussia it could be a unique flag or as a pirate it could be an iconic pirate flag. Just so you could personalize your ship and show your achievements sort of. It would also encourage players to do explore the game if they know in the end they get a cool reward for it.

    100 Days at Sea Quest [Complete Series]

    I am pretty sure @ScipioTortuga enjoyed that fight and he could always surrender or turn off survival if he wished. The reason why I was supposed to "make him suffer" was because EliteDelta got "ganked" in 1v2 fight, Indef vs Wasa & Surprise by Scipio and Louis. You could as well say that ganking = toxicity & suffering of others After that fight Scipio with friends came again to fight us, no one insulted each other, everyone said gl hf, gg wp etc.

    instead of ghost ships, they could add Treasure fleets. I would also have liked to add Taverns where you somewhat communicate with locals (NPC) with rumours of fleets carrying different goods, and a wanted board or something.

    While we all want much more content for the game that will cater to the casula-average and pve oriented playerbase, some of your ideas dont fit for NA.

    While I agree real sailors carry more, the 1 of each was just an anti-cheat precaution against older screenshots. o7

  20. People camp outside of capitals not for marks, but to get some battle. ANY battle. Upgrades which you get from PvP marks are useless - I don't use them at all. Only some upgrades which you can get only from PvE are somewhat useful. If someone fixes PvP zones, I'm all for it - even don't allow to attack a ship in a protected zone - simple and clear. If PvP zone is not fixed before that though, it would completely kill the current game population. I would quit, and so many others would.

    That fight against Scipio shows your inherent toxicity. "make him suffer". Sadist.

    WANTED : NA dead or alive ?

    Greetings Captains and Devs, First, I'll give Capt Frog kudos for sticking his neck out and putting forth an idea though, sadly, I must disagree and vote no on this one. He loves the game enough to take his time to pitch an idea. He is not, as some do, bitching, moaning, complaining, having not gotten their way, throwing themselves on the floor, pounding their fists, kicking their feet and squalling like a squalid brats. So while doing real life this morning I've been kicking his idea around in my head with the help of Seadog Wade. As you can see I've just promoted him to a ranked sea dog. I see in here the germ of an idea. What are people wanting on the PVP server? Constantly I hear "There's no PVP.", "There's no RVR." and a lot of other stuff. I see the game getting stagnant. What if every 6 months the Caribbean is struck by a massive catastrophe. The ports are reset so that everyone, that likes that sort of thing, can have at it again. Awards can be handed out etc. Massive patches can be applied without wrecking peoples game play. This might lead to greater player retention and game testing. Keeping it fresh. I must continue to think that the training of new players needs to be done on the PVE server till they are ready for the rigors of the PVP server. But we must somehow keep the old ones interested too by somehow livening up the PVP server with out discouraging newcomers. For now I've get back to real life. Fair sailing all and have a great day/night.

    So you'd suggest throwing away most of the last 2 years of development... Hate to break it to you, but that won't bring people back.
