Rum to restore may need tweaking

10 posts in this topic

First off a hardy o7! to all!

 

I think rum to restore crew may need some serious tweaking.

We caught 2 1st rates and stern raked the crap out of them....but with each '5-3' crew restore they gained 200 or so crew back.  they did this at least 3 times... that's 600 or so crew brought back from the dead/injured.  

There should be a cap on restorable crew....say 1/4 of the max. crew.

Rum seems to be cheaper to use than buying more crew.

There should be no cap. There are 2 main problems with restoring crew:

1. Crew restores too quickly. That must be a magician, not surgeon.

2. 10 minutes is a very short cooldown for restoring crew. I would say 20 minutes at least. Tried to capture Agamemnon, but he kept getting his crew back each 10 minutes...

Basically what I'm saying is that Magic surgeons did not exist in this age. 

Most injuries suffered by crew we're devastating.  

Very few could be patched up and sent back to their duty station. 

Restoring 600 crew on a ship should be impossible

Maybe cap the surgeon like the hammocks for higher rates.

Surgeon repairs 20% on 5th rates and 5% for 1st rates for example.

Maybe make the surgeon(s?) part of the actual crew count like marines and let rng kill/wound them whenever crew losses happen.

Example victory at trafalgar had 1 surgeon + 2 assistants.

So if you would lose one: -33% surgeons capacity to replace legs with peg legs.

As a fellow squid, I know you've heard and appreciate the real meaning behind the Corpsman's "HM" moniker...

"Here's Motrin"
