    I'd rather have 6-7th rates be more viable than the opposite tbh and while this griefing you described sounds like pure toxic cancer, there has to be a better way to fix it... i know im in the minority with my opinion but i think the game would be more interesting, if more people sailed 6-7 rates... Also this would be easily fixed by removing the retarded endless repairs.... as well as alot of other issues that are caused mainly by multiple repairs. Just saying...

    Yesterday we had a great battle of unrated corsair schooners and frankenrigs versus two pirate rigged frigates near Charles Town, swedish territories. One 7th and two 6th vs two 5th. Started with the corsairs engaging one of the frigates. Second one joined shortly after the battle started. One of the frigate captains was in "panic" mode at first but his companion surely put his brains to work and they developed a nice Thach Weave to counter the razor blade passes of the small ships. There was this moment where one of the 5th was so low on crew that we tried to force the boarding but he kept his cool. Kudos for their teamwork. They kept changing from chain to ball, from rigging to hull to grape. I wish more of such attitude and team bonds would develop between a clearly experienced veteran and a not-so-experienced captain would happen more. One of the most enjoyable display of "air combat" tactics in Naval Action in a while. The similarities between bigger fighters fighting off weaker more nimble fighters in a air combat sim is exactly the same. It ended with the loss of the 7th and one 6th rate after a few crew shocks on both frigates, armors being stripped also, and proper rakes on the 5th rates, and masts falling on the unrated and eventually water pouring in. One lived to tell the tale and was brave enough to sail to both wrecks and salvage all the goods from previous raids and escape from the combat. Salute to the Swedish navy captains for the great NA moment.

    The question is why can a pLGV be nerfed asap (only a few are using it). But the Wasa is still racing to the moon (a lot of people are using it)

    I disagree. It would be great if more people were to sail 6th (hell, even 7th). If all those Wasas and P-Frigates in OW start to complain, it only shows that people finally start figuring out how to use these smaller ships properly. That's a good thing! If at all, make 6th rates more worthwhile. The more variety in OW, the better.

    LOL Wrong Roberts next headed for Sierra Leone, arriving on 12 June. Here he was told that two Royal Navy ships, HMS Swallow and HMS Weymouth, had left at the end of April, planning to return before Christmas.[29] On 8 August, he captured two large ships at Point Cestos, now River Cess in Liberia. One of these was the frigate Onslow, transporting soldiers bound for Cape Coast (Cabo Corso) Castle. A number of the soldiers wished to join the pirates, and they were eventually accepted, however they only received a quarter of a pirates pay because they were not sailors most of their lives. The Onslow was converted to become the fourth Royal Fortune.[30] In November and December, the pirates careened their ships and relaxed at Cape Lopez and the island of Annobon. Black Bart.. or Bartholomew Roberts, captured a 5th rate and was sailing an unrated ship (6th rate). I often hunt in a 6th rate on the EU server... and if you as a 4th rate captain can not handle a pair of 6th rates then you need to look at your sailing practices. They are just out sailing you sir, and thus you need to learn to sail better. Even the current Constitution can turn enough to get a broadside into a Snow, and if you use chain or just aim for the masts you can cripple that ship before it can do anything. But if you are rocking carronades for PVE missions, well that is on you. The Constitution, Wasa, and Wappen all turn as well as a Trincomalee and Belle now so no reason for you to have issues with such a little ship. I myself have been chased off by a well captained LGV, who on paper didnt stand a chance vs my Prince. But he was able to pull a great maneuver that put me squarely in his broadside.... I didnt like that 10 gun 9lb chain into my sails.... and I was forced to pull off and come around for a better pass and he just sailed away at his best point and left me.

    Actually if a 4th rate in real life encountered 2-3 6th rates it would fear being boarded because real life doesn’t allow 1 ship at a time for boarding or 3 knot speed to climb on board. In real life the 6ths would have a fighting chance. So this argument about a “real life scenario” in game won’t work. 6th rates have purpose, to harass and be underestimated in battle. 2 snows can easily take on a 4th rate. 2 skilled snows can take down even the most skilled 4th rates. There isn’t enough 6th rate hunters in game, but they have their place right now and currently I enjoy it. No reason a 6th rate captain can’t have their fun because a 4th rate captain doesn’t think it should be allowed. Realistic does not have a place for this since the games combat is 50/50 on realism anyway.

    Lol... 2 decent captains in Princes can easily take down a Wasa... getting “griefed” by 6th rates is almost as annoying as 15.5 knot Wasa captains that run away from a couple of 6th rates. 1) make 4th rates incapable of speeds above 13.5 2) make catains have to get 100 PvP kills before they can move up a rate... See how easy it is to make unreasonable demands?? and *ahem* HMS Speedy vs. El Gamo *ahem*

    The only advantage a 6th rate has over larger ships is it's agility and you want to take that away? Why does everything has to be balanced in a way where everything can sink everything guaranteed? We might as well get an "I win" button if you are sailing a bigger ship than your enemy

    How about you stop sailing around solo in a large ship? That would solve your problem.

    Так мужики, разойдитесь, я прочитал эту стену текста)) Я вот всё не понимаю, чего все так уцепились в это слово "ПВП", это просто флаг, который позволяет атаковать игроков, не более того. На этом отличие от "ПВЕ" сервера заканчивается, угомонитесь вы уже. На этом можно и заканчивать. Человек явно не разбирается в игровой индустрии от слова совсем. Если это сделать, онлайн тут же упадет до 100 человек да там и останется. Нельзя выгнать крабов из безопасных зон, они скорее из игры уйдут, чем начнут рисковать. Если есть желание, рекомендую почитать дневники разработчиков EVE Online, они уже 10 лет пытаются мотивировать крабов покинуть безопасную империю путем введения новых плюшек в каждом из аддонов. И при этом, по их же статистике, около 70% онлайна до сих пор обитает только в безопасной империи. И это при вечернем онлайне в 40к на секундочку. А тут у меня закралось впечатление, что человек и в Навал не играет. Зайди хоть в столицу Дании, посмотри на полностью пустой список ресурсов, поставь контракт втридорога, и его заберут в течении 15 минут. После этого замечательного нововведения, новичок зайдет за нацию, посмотрит на пустой магазин, да свалит в более населенную территорию. Что приведет к полному вырождению малонаселенных коллективов, и в игре останется 3-4 нации для фановых пострелушек. Классное предложение. В принципе это уже сейчас наблюдать можно. Из более-менее населенных наций одни Шведы да и остались. Дальше и вовсе фантастика пошла про конвои которые будут охранят НПЦ, и таких же охотников за этими караванами... Ей богу, кто этим будет заниматься кроме последних ролеплейщиков - мне не понятно.

    Since I joined the game I never cared about any other ship class than 6th rates. I used rattlesnake, now prince, to attack all ship classes (except 5th rate, turn too well). Taking out a wasa, bellona, santisima etc. captain is definetly possible. It requires a lot of skill as if you mess up once you could receive a whole broadside. It's not griefing. It requires a lot of skill to perform and if done correctly the results are great. If you spent over 6 HOURS in 4 battles that would mean that each battle is one and a half hours. That means you are doing something wrong and the snows are doing something wrong. If you can't broadside them, they must be behind you. And if they are behind you they must be shooting your crew? Then why are you still in battle and not being boarded? Also, over 6 hours? So you broke the game and the battles were longer than 90min?I quite frankly don't believe the 6 hours statement. It has always been an advantage for small ships to outmanouver big ships. Should not be removed, but maybe (as also done historically) you shouldn't sail around alone in a ship of the line and then complain about being attacked by smaller vessels.

    Farming marks of friends is against the spirit of PVP and captains who are doing it should know that it might lead to full account reset on all servers. 7 players have received the warnings and had all their mark holdings (combat and pvp) confiscated. If reported again those captains will be demoted to lowest ranks. 16th November update 8 more players have been demoted for multiple cases of pvp mark farming. Half of their experience were wiped. If more cases are found full xp wipe will be applied.

    I think the worst part of this nerf is that the only people who had the LGV Refit were active PvP players. Many of which now feel defeated, as their hard work to get this expensive ship feels pretty worthless now.

    I have a suggestion... Lets only have port battles for 1 hour a day.... It has to be with 2000-2100 GMT. This way it is good for most everyone. No more night flips, day flips, afternoon flips, tea-time flips, work flips, back flips or front flips.

    TIme in Greece,Ukraine,Berarus etc is GMT+2. Its actually worse for Russians since Moscow time is GMT+3. So for me if a PB is set for 23:00 which is the latest server time a PB can be set if i am not mistaken, means i will have to fight at 1 in the morning. Plus and hour or so for the actual fight. It's worse for Russians. It's not ideal for me but it's not bad either. One of the purposes of a clan is to have people of different timezones that can actually fight that PB instead of yourself, and fight a PB that is set earlier for him where he can't attend.

    A firstrate can desytroy everything ;-) It just need a skilled captain and not mission makers trying to fight like they would fight Ai. 1 broadside really one good braodside of a pavel can sink a prince and a pavel isnt a first rate ;-) The problem are not the ships. The problem are the captains that commandeer the ships

    Go to fleet. Switch ships. Take the cannons put them into the warehouse. Put the ship for sale for an insane price. Put the cannons in the remaining ship. Sail home. Switch to a cutter put the cannons in hold. Sail back to the port where the prize ship is for sale. Sell your cutter, take the prize from sale and equip it. Sail your prize home. (no need to make an outpost or to lose the prize ship)

    I do not want to appear disrespectful, but - really - nowdays we have the forum full of complaints of the same five (maybe six or seven) very skilled and ubergeard OS PVPers that just want their personal playstyle to be untouchable by other players. What kind of fair fight are you talking about, when you - that are very skilled, have all the exp slots open and all the possible books leaned, have all the right mods in place (including the new PVP ones too) - can pick up the fight attacking at will a ship of a lower BR than yours? I simply cannot undestand why a Wasa is allowed attack, let's say, a Tbrig that cannot stand any chance neither to fight nor to flee and yet being awarded PVP marks (and that seems to be perfectly fine with you), while - if a bunch of snows can outlast a Wasa then - well .... that's griefing (or a bullshit). A solution may be called actually fair if it benefits both parties: and that solution would be that - in presence of a huge difference of BR - there shall be no fight, no matter who is attacking who. This could be fair. But fairness does not belong at all to a scenario in which the part that is already stronger gets the all the advandages against the weaker one.

    Portbattle Russians vs Swedes @ Grand Turk Commanders: Sweden: redii, sveno Russian: Anolytic (?) Result: Swedish Victory Basically the Russians went to the Swedes, passed them downwind and then gave up the Portbattle. This was one of the shortest portbattle done between the Swedes and Russians. The Swedes tried to sink as many Russians as possible, also in OW after the portbattle. A feature of interest was that the Swedes used 3 Mortar Brigs in a defensive portbattle. Video will be uploaded when it is ready. edit: Added video.

    fixing the bug changed the square sail curves. every mast has its individual curve and removing the bug changed the curves. We would like to remind that the large hp and speed and br rebalance is coming. LGVP is still a perfect hunter ship requiring skill and precision. Several captains reported the bug and it was fixed.

    Portbattle Russians vs Swedes @ Port de Paix Commanders: Sweden: redii, sveno Russia: Babay, Anolytic Result: Sweden wins A weird and short portbattle. Both teams had 3 mortar brigs. The port is in a very narrow passage, making maneuvering a very close thing. Wind was SEE slightly in favour of the defending Swedes. The Russians had to pass the Swedes downwind, the Swedes evaded almost all mortar shots by doing slalom in the front part of the lines. The Russians were mostly downwind and were not able to hold circles as they were pressed against the downwind Island. The Swedes sent some Wasas to the Russian mortar Brigs and had not to worry about them, while the Swedish mortar Brigs were able to do large damage on the Russian big ships. The Swedes held most of a time all three circles and victory was early, too early, we would have liked to fight a bit longer. WP to the Russians, thank you for this Portbattle! o7 Swedish PoV done by @rediii Russian PoV done by @BABAY edit: added video

    It's kinda like when folks thought the Type 59 in WoT was so OP. No it wasn't, the problem was guys like me had it since day one and was running around with a 5 crew maxed out set up and could own any pub noob in a heart beat with it. Which is what you get when you have a ship that only PvPers can get is you have some of the better players in game with a ship that others can't get so it's going to seem OP cause they are the more skilled player.....well some of them are. Would make a great reward ship, but than again I would love to have a bunch of Pirate Refits that only pirates can get and than put the limit on 4th rates and below shipyards for pirates. Only way to get any SOL is by capture them You know give us pirates some mechanics and I might even be interested in the game once more.

    Only problem I have with small ships is that they can keep tagging big ships from distance for the whole battle duration if they want with no chance for the bigger ship to leave the "battle", essentially keeping you hostage in the battle with no intention to fight. But then again its not easy to fix

    Spain would routinely flip the US back before the wipe around 1700 and then complain about night flips. This is nothing new. When dealing with the Spanish you most always remember it's do as they say, not do as they do. Frankly the solution is and always will be port timers set by the clan that owns the port. If you have a timer that outside the primetime of the server, maintenance on it should cost more daily. Make it happen @admin

    We have a new PB system specifically to get more variation, mortar brigs are a part of that variation, as everybody can use it, i think its fair game - also gives fast frigates a sence being in a heavy portbattle. In this portbattle, our mortars only made three assists, no kill. Your mortar was the first to demast a big ship. I wouldn't call them OP against ships, needs a lot of skill.

    A 1st rate can, theoretically, destroy them without problems - read: if the 1st rate forces the corsair squadron to escape, that is a victory. It all starts with 1 things. OW position of the 1st rate relative to the wind. Given some nations must rely less on massive fleets and more on "privateer, corsair" types due to constraints on economy - very very historical - I cannot see any problems with emulating in-game the HMS Africa engagement versus the danish gunboats

    George Town (In the Caymans) GB attacking, Pirates defending GB took the port GB came into the port with primarily a Buc fleet, while the Pirates chose to defend with mostly Wasas. Early in the battle the pirates found themselves with poor wind, while the bulk of GB waited until the closest fort could be taken while a small contingent went to take C. The pirates sent a small force to contest C while the main forces looked at each other through their spyglasses and took sniping shots. A n additional pirate Victory spawned in about the 20 minute mark and with A in firm pirate control the bulk of the defending fleet set out to smash the small British forces in C. The British commander decided to split our forces to help our hearty mates in C, whilst with the forts being dealt with by our mortar brig expert enabled the rest of the British fleet to capture A. A few pirates took the opportunity of a favourable wind shift to contest B from the small force left to hold it, so a few Bucs reversed course and sailed to buttress the defense of B. Circle C found the Brits outgunned and they made a retreat from C with the loss of one Brit captain in a pirate frigate. Over the next 20 minutes a few Pirate captains found themselves on the wrong end of relentless broadsides. Some with their ships on fire they attempted to fireship a Brit but were unsuccessful, other bravely kept shooting till they joined the crew of ole Davy Jones. One of the Pirate Victorys decided to escape mid battle, possibly deciding to spare his crew as he waved to his brothers. The game was deciding with points, overall the Pirates lost 4 Wasas, while the Brits lost one Pirate Frigate. Great fight to all in the battle, tip of the hat to both the winners and losers.
