    Stuck in french port...

    can't be done like that in a foreign port

    You broke combat news

    As the title says, Combats news doesn't show anything today

    @admin AI doesn't "cheat"? The one I captured in the final exam had CHARGE loaded on the stern carronades! I can understand buffing their hp and reload etc. But they should be subject to the same game limitations as players.

    You'd make a great politician.

    And hull hits doesn't actually mean I hit the hull? Sail hits doesn't mean I actually hit the sails? A registered crew hit just means he saw the ball go past and just got a little shaken up? So the bits of wood coming from the masts when the ball hits were not splinters but in fact chaff designed to distract the ball?

    If a mast hit is registered then it penetrated did it not?

    How many mast hits would you say are needed to take one of their masts down? Because in the endurance exam, 60+ didn't do it and that was a Brig Also please explain to me how I am supposed to seperate the enemy when the faster ship refuses to pass the slower ship? A As you can see the ship in front has heavily damaged sails. BUT everytime the ship gets to the point of over taking the ship in front it drops its sails to down down and never overtakes. If you ask me, the second ship does NOT look like it is being sailed by a combat orientated captain! And much like a majority of the players, will not fight without his friend. Is this what you mean by "Preparing new players for PvP"?
  8. Like seriously, is it even possible to demast those ships? Because I have been unable to
  9. Sorry if it has been said already but could @admin confirm the Exam rewards can only be awarded ONCE per steam account?

    Tried to demast the second Brig in the Endurance challenge, got over 55 masts hits and they still didn't go down. What upgrades are those guys carrying?
  11. How many rounds of double does the AI have in the exams because it just seems unlimited
  12. No you are not, you can't trade that to anyone

    Ports in Control of Alts

    I don't want to start naming people or have this turn into a bitching match but I think it is something that needs bringing to the attention of @admin to highlight a broken mechanic that needs fixing. Currently the British have two (possibly more) ports that are controlled by the alt accounts of players that have left the nation recently. Surely that can't be right, because as a nation we are unable to retake the ports forcefully and it seems that the people in question are unwilling to relinquish control of the ports. It has meant having to make deals to have another nation trying to take the port(s) and then hope we can take it from them in the future. Nobody can argue that this is an intended function of the current RvR mechanics, so my question to the devs is: Do you have anything planned to address this issue? (It should also be noted that this just my view as I see the current situation in the nation at the moment and that I don't usually get involved in the RvR side of the game myself)
  14. THAT is the fine line they are trying to find. But any change they make is going to please some and piss off others
  15. Is the open world geography getting an update? That map looks very confusing, much of it doesn't seem to correspond to the current map. (As in, are geographical features being added/moved?)

    "I don't want to start naming people or have this turn into a bitching match but I think it is something that needs bringing to the attention of @admin to highlight a broken mechanic that needs fixing." Which part of that didn't make sense to you? If you can't add productively to the conversation without slipping in a little dig then please keep your comments to yourself. They are not helpful in the slightest. I am highlighting the problem in general, not a specific incident

    A reward for staying alive / not getting sunk // captivity option

    Yeah, let's not encourage people to group up even more because they are afraid of getting killed. The gank squads are big enough as it is

    When enemy hits your mast...

    Don't get me wrong, I personally prefer the current system of having to work out for yourself how much damage your masts have taken and having to "guess" whether or not you should repair rig, I would also prefer that knowing sail damage was purely a visual thing as well.(For both yourself and the enemy) But I think in the current system we definitely need to keep track of enemy ship damage via UI as like you say, it would take quite a bit of work for the devs to change damage representation on ships.

    When enemy hits your mast...

    The problem is that it is already so easy to take masts, do we really want to make it easier by people knowing that they only need to hit a specific mast once more via the UI?

    When enemy hits your mast...

    An indicator for your own might be a good idea, but I'm not sure the enemy should know the conditions of your masts
  21. How many open world battles are fought 1v1? The reality is that if you go out looking for a fight then you will encounter a group FAR more often than you will encounter a solo player. We need to be able to repair masts several times throughout the battles if the devs are going to continue to insist on making demasting so easy. The current tactic of most experienced PvPers is to go straight for the demast. If the devs want to limit chain (which I wholeheartedly agree with) then they need to decrease the chance of losing a mast to go with it. P.S. Can you tell me where you got this upgrade/book that lets you repair 35% of your armour every 5 minutes?
