    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    So you're saying it took you multiple battles to sink them? So like the Spanish usually do, just keep sending more ships until the enemy is out of repairs?
  2. Repeatedly (and I am not the only one who has noticed him doing it) Hethwill has been unable to keep his emotions in check or remain unbiased when perfrom his duties as moderator on the forums. Recently he has become rather aggressive and rude in his replies, sometimes being outright argumentative just to be an arse. He often deletes or edits people's post if their opinions clash with his own. The worst thing about him editing those posts is that he can do it in a way that shows no "edited" tag meaning that he has at times deliberately adjusted posts to how he sees fit and in ways that do not reflect the opinion or sentiment that was originally intended but as far as anyone one the forum is concerned that is what you intended to say when it was in fact not. He has used the same methods to edit his own posts without giving it the "edited" tag so that if proven wrong he has been able to say "that's not what I said though is it" (I have to say admin has been guilty of this at least once that I have noticed a couple of months back) He has a habit of taking a thread off-topic (usually some tangent about coffee or some other crap) and then "verbally" warns others not to do the same. *Now I am fully aware that I am not the politest of people on here and never will be, HOWEVER I am not charged with being a community leader* All in all, @admin if this is what you consider to be a suitable "role model" (can't think of a the actual word I mean) then it is no wonder Naval Action has the playerbase that it does. Thanks

    Little Cayman will open its docks to the public

    @Hethwill the Harmless I believe Batman is asking you to close this topic as its purpose has come to an end and has gone WAY off topic
  4. It is fine as it is now, 30% was too much, this is better

    New Boarding patch

    What about those of us who not want to take Bellonas OW hunting? They're too bloody exspensive to use in open world because in order make them fast enough to chase anything you have to have copper plating and elite spanish

    New Boarding patch

    All these kind of patches do is favour the groups of gankers, always have. Just a shame most people cannot see it
  7. Tried to send @Henry d'Esterre Darby a message as requested by him but received the error "Henry d'Esterre Darby cannot receive messages." Great work as usual
  8. Wait? So the rule is "do not respond to anyone complaining about moderators"? So there is no point in me messaging you at all then. Moderators can behave how they like without consequences? No wonder Gamelabs and the moderators have such a negative image on steam Thanks for your time
  9. You want want me to link you to threads with edited post that have no "edited" tag? Explain the logic in that!

  10. On the bright side it will save wear on my "B" key, because battle sails is pointless
  11. he means you lose more crew when boarding prepped
  12. That's because despite his protests, this change benefits him and arseholes like him the most. For example: Most people (wrongly or rightly) now look at DD and see the number as useless and will swap it out for something else, meaning he will be able to board them instantly with his rage board set up. Now no doubt when he pulls a Bellona into boarding that Bellona will be able to disenagage BUT not without taking huge crew losses. All he then has to do is keep repeating the pull until he eventually wins the boarding. "You're the kind of tosser that spawn camps in a game while yelling Git Gud." (Also do not insult his beloved Licinio or Hethwill will stop you posting on the forums until you yield to his wishes and promise never to hurt his precious Licinio again )
  13. Bollocks! It has nothing to do with adapting. It is already obvious what sort of damage this is going to do. More people will rage quit over the next few days than the last 2 months put together
  14. They wont be adding ramming damage, they had it before and couldn't fix the issues with it so I very much doubt they will reintroduce it.
  15. I'll pass on taking "combat" advice from you if it's all the same
  16. So you've just changed some lines of code and thought "yeah that'll do, we don't need to test anything here" You say the changes will increase the importance of DD, yet you reduce the bonus to 0%? Unless you had just poorly worded it then this means you no longer need more crew than the enemy to board? Now getting close enough for "Double Ball" to be effective is essentially suicide? You want to stop small ship stern camping big ships? Do you suggest a Snow should go broadside to Broadside (at enough range for for all the big ship's guns to be able to hit I might add) for the whole battle?

    Other trims

    They were put there so that captured NPC ships were still useful for PvE but not good still really for PvP I believe they said. Are they too fast downwind for you?

    Cut the crap, they are not the same ship at all and you know it

    Again, yes it is fairly easy to force a requin to retreat if you know what you are doing but almost impossible keep one in the battle long enough to sink it if the captain wants to leave. How do you not get that is an issue, it is too safe for raiders to use. The mentality is this: "Attack a ship, if it is a bad captain we will board and sink it or if it is a good captain we can safely leave and find an easier target" THAT is the issue, no punishment for choosing the wrong target

    Legal Usage Of An Alt Account

    @admin @Ink We are all aware that due to limitations in your contractual agreements with Steam that you cannot prevent the use of alt accounts in game but there are some uses of an alt that you will not allow. Recent events have proven that this has become a grey area that has led to a lot of confusion and ill feeling between players. I know attempts over the last few years have been made to establish some "dos" and "do nots" regarding alts but they are either very vague or have changed over time. So I am asking for an updated and definitive set of rules regarding what an alt account is NOT allowed to be used for under any circumstances. Thanks

  24. So Basically, from Dutch where you made a real difference, to Russia where, sorry to say you were insignificant and sorta faded into the background. Now to a nation where you will pull your hair out because nobody wants to do any RvR (or cannot agree on anything related to RvR due to too many egos clashing) I do however, wish you luck. You will need it (Directed at HAVOC in general, not any one person)
