    A smaller map

    Yeah get people out of the capitals and it will change. I wouldn't expect there to ever be a balanced dispersion of players across the map. There will always be high pop areas where people farm/base themselves but what's lacking is the through traffic between these areas. PVE and farming should be better outside capitals (more loot, more money, more XP) When I levelled up the only way to do it fast was with AI fleets because the missions sucked. Distance ports. Ports should be better period. (more resources, more customisability etc.)

    Maps fine. Just get the players out of the capitals please then it will be a different story.

    Prussian Ports For Sale

    All you top tier players are as bad as each other. Take your heads firmly outta those brown holes and chill the fuck out.

    Combat tutorial feedback

    2 Brigs with full mods is abit OP for the endurance exam. Maybe drop the full complement of boarding mods and it would be abit fairer on the new guys.

    Boarding + 'Determined Defender' suggestion

    I still think it should be based off of a deeper moral system. A demoralised ship regardless of the crew wouldn't be determined defenders. Kill the moral like the Surprise demasting the Acheron (a much bigger vessel) then board the buggers. Already suggested idea revolving this before in the determined defender feedback but the threat was locked.

    Area Control Greifing

    Its privateer ? Shouldn't be able to keep up with anything downwind. If it chases shoot its mast.

    The Newbro Problem

    Yeah seriously pre steam. No missions no safe zones. Steam release 1500-2000 players online a night in prime time with No safe zones and missions had hello kitty all xp. Ultimately it is easier in its current form for the new guys and the safe zone needs to exist but don't try and validate the arguments with "well put yourself in there shoes" We all have and it was much harder back then with player numbers for us. PS FYI i'm all for safe zones The new players need protecting.

    Staysails vs Mainsail Turning helper

    On square riggers with big mains depower at 20 degrees from the wind and slam your self into reverse. Tack all the way over to 45 degrees before powering up the head sails and resuming normal sail.

    Ports in Control of Alts

    Yeah this shit exists across the board. RUBL still holds pirate ports even though they've gone Prussian. It is a bit silly.
  11. Yeah this is a hello kittying great patch. As for PVE missions please code a feature to warn players in big red pop up text when there leaving the safe zone. This will allow new players complete transparency and reduce unecessary seal clubbing that causes the new guys to leave the game. Message should read. You are leaving the safe zone. If attacked you will no longer be able to call in local reinforcements. Leave at your own risk. Seal clubbings bad.

    Because we dont have the numbers or quality to fight a nation like Prussia. (Braces for incoming barrage of text) :)

    Patrol Area ROE

    So just wanna confirm the ROE really. We joined a patrol area battle today and split our fleet in two. One group joined the Spanish one group joined the British and we had a epic battle of much enjoyment. Is the ROE meant to be like this ? Either way was really fun and better than us just rolling into one side and ganking some poor sods. See screenshot

    LV NA needs you

    I missed most of sorrys shenanigans as the game was stale at LV's turn to pirate so I had a break just like all of Kot0 But from what I remember arrogance flowed from the demon and it pissed a lot of people off. #notimeforthat

    My point exactly. Education is important across all media.

    Tooltip on loading screens

    It can be more than one thing? Everyone watches loading screens every day. The possibilities are endless. I understand what you mean and i'm suggesting that the terms are explained. Which aka is helpful and extends peoples knowledge of a topic while they play and use the knowledge. Some games use loading screens to teach players setting, history and use quotes to inspire. There is no reason the game cant contain all of these things, Tutorial tips, hints, cool pictures that help people learn, interesting extended knowledge like naval terms. Wouldn't you find it interesting to read something different every time that's aimed towards all different levels of expertise and players from beginners to seasoned vets. Text in terms of data is nothing. There's no reason why the loading screen couldn't call on thousands of sentences/statements.

    Whats the point in a historical naval game if were not gonna drop some scene setting in with naval terms of the era?

    Should also have a image attached showing the stern going through the wind I think there incredibly useful. Once this game contains multiple languages terms like that should be displayed in different languages.

    Tooltip on loading screens

    I agree but some simple diagrams might help Displaying simple shit. Like downwind, upwind, different names for sailing angles. Close haul, Beam reach etc etc. Maybe dropping in Tips for other sailing terms would be good. For example "Passing ones stern through the Wind is considered the art of Jibing"

    Manual Sail positions. The Gif that's floating around is a good one.

    RvR Suggestions

    You should be able to set the first timer on the same day you cap it and it will take affect "immediately" (at reset) then after that any changes should remain until Monday port "income" Keeping it for a longer period without change will promote more attacks for sure.

    Make it weekly with the victory mark income.
