    Long voyages

    If you don't do anything for 30mn the game will kick you out. It has been like that for at least a year (or even more) now.

    Key to sucsess

    I think the final exam of the tutorial shouldn't be part of the tutorial because completing it doesn't prepare a new player to pvp or pve. It should be in a category of its own: The Challenge Area.... which could be extended and have like a monthly challenge for those who are interested in that kind of thing.

    And we should have different feet and inches depending of the nation we are in

    I haven't sailed the Hercule yet and I usually fight/sink on my Indefatigable

    Employes pretending to be players

    Devs are playing the game, which is normal, they try to keep their anonymity as I guess they want to enjoy the game and not be harassed all the time.

    nope.... You played the Hercule as you should and it's effective at raking bigger and slower to turn ships... I guess you did the usual scenario, first the sails, then the crew and with the 2 shocks the guy on the other side couldn't do anything against it then you boarded him and the fight was over.

    Patch 25: Open world user interface update.

    So far I have 2 problems with the new interface: - When at sea, if I click on a French Officer (my nation) their rank will be automatically in English instead of the French equivalent. - the position on ping/number of players present is not convenient as it's under the chat box. Otherwise no complain for anything else. Thanks for the patch and I can't wait for the one for crafting/economy

    PVP servers merge

    oh please close this topic... useless conversation. One server for all pvp players. That's the best we can have... no more divide as we had for some time. We are one community we deserve to be on one server like we were at the beginning.

    Remember guys... we are here to enjoy the game not piss on everybody or compare phallus size. For example yesterday evening we were trying to stop an American force to set up a PB... We had only 3 oceans able to answer the call early enough to intercept the opposing force. We were able to tag them in open world after a few unsuccessful BR too low fails. I almost sank when they decided to turn around and fight. So it was a very interesting battle for me. We were also glad that nobody died on our side. Usually Boom in his little 5th rate doesn't survive... And this time he did, so it was like a bonus achievement (should be a steam achievement me say).

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    You know how you sound guys? Like two old Muppets complaining about everything and nothing... It's too high of a price. You should just abandon it so they can attack it whenever they want and maybe win the fight against the AI ships defending it.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    The game allows everybody to repair often so it's not a skill reserved to some players. The players just need to bring enough repairs... I have noticed that a lot of people have a tendency to repair too late when there is almost nothing left. The key to survival is to repair the hull as often as possible and the sails when you're too slow.

    Back

    I bought the dlc a few months ago to support the development of the game (and I don't intend to use is) as I did buy the other games I barely play. It's way cheaper anyway than all the other games I have played... I'm over 2 years and an half in now. But as some others have pointed out... If I was the one in charge, I would ban all the alts and have only dlc for cosmetic stuffs, but I'm not in charge and I don't think that the alts will go away by themselves so I welcome the dlc giving more docking space.

    To me it seems more convenient to use than having an alt (which I don't have because I don't want to be bothered with having two steam account and I don't know what else).

    Should we provide a TS for our opponents every time we get in a battle?

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    That's kind of funny... We are looking for content on a server when at our time of gaming there is between 120 an 150 players. We don't really have the choice. By reading your comment it sounds as it was a super easy fight for us. Almost all of us where close to sinking at one point or another just because of the number of guns firing at us. Also as for spreading the skill around as you say, it's not that easy. I'm not sure everybody is ready to pay to move to another nation for the love of our enemy. And a move will certainly not guaranty that the new friends will accept with joy and go with eagerness learn the skills... Our ex-leader Pit moved to the British land a few months ago and it didn't change anything. So with the numbers on the server right now we can't be picky and our only hope is to see the next patch arrive and a renewed interest for the game by the better players.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    In fact not really, 2 of us (Tiz and me) were waiting for some Americans who had attacked a player at Bridgtown... And nothing came out if it... We were chilling on the TS and talking about the lack of fight lately... Then Amiral Lou (we're in the same clan) told us he and Orient needed help. he had already sank a brit in another fight around the British waters and was low on repairs. So we came back to FR and then TP to la Navasse and Aster logged on the TS at that time and we went together.

    The story is a little different. Amiral Lou and Orient got attacked in the British green zone. The battle was underway when they called for help I think they were at 5v2. So we came. And between the time of the call and when we arrived some more Brits entered the battle (they were 7 when we entered). Orient died by the time we were able to get close in the fight. So we were 7 vs 4 with Amiral Lou's Bellona in bad shape. And then after that 6 more came. I think the main difference between their group and our was the discipline of command (Aster was commanding) and we tried to focus our fire as much as possible. It kind of sound easy just by saying it but we had a few close call.
