    Hear ye! Hear ye! The Danish-Norwegian navy fought a hard fight at Cayman Brac tonight against the spanish conquistadors! The danish-norwegian admiralty has decided to publish the following account from the danno-norwegian admiral in the battle. "The wind was favouring the attackers from the start and for the first part of the battle the spanish aggressors kept the danish-norwegian battlefleet engaged from a distance while the danish fleet had a hard time beating against the wind for the spanish battlefleet. The wind turned against the danish-norwegian fleet as it was beating towards the spanish fleet leaving two of the danno-norwegian SoLs in a vulnerable position. After some hesitation the spanish commander decided to signal his fleet for an engagement. The spanish fleet was a ragtag fleet of different ships with a few Bucentaure class and Bellona class SoL's to provide their fleet with a backbone of steel and then added a mixture of frigates, cutters and a mortar brig to give the fleet some manouverability and freedom. This gave the spanish fleet the initial advantage when their commander identified two ships out of the line and vulnerable since the wind was shifting for the 2nd time in the battle. The ensuing chaos in the danno-norwegian lines meant that Captains Lars Kjaer, aboard the Bucentaure class "FrihedstĂžjten" and DarkJoker, likewise aboard a Bucentaure class ship of the line, was left battered, bruised and strugling to stay in the engagement. DarkJokers lineship was unfortanetely pummeled to the point where she could not be saved and floundered a few nautical miles off the harbor fortress. The spanish however had not achieved the sinking of the danish ship without cost and Hidalgo aboard a Bucentaure class SoL was singled out and sunk thanks to a concentraded fire from the danno-norwegian line. After this the battle turned into a messy brawl where the danno-norwegian heavier ships managed to sink several spanish ships. The battle deseves some honorable mentions: From the danno-norwegian side: Captain Jesper Dahl, Thomas "Doc" Millar and Cabral From the spanish armada: Captain Bill Barents for uncanny accuracy in the mortar brig and Captains DShiro and Hidalgo for isolating, sandwiching and killing the infamous danish-norwegian captain DarkJoker." This reporter was lucky enough to recieve a painting comemorating the event from an unknown beneficiary! EDIT: All hail the two kingdoms!

    I have to agree with Staun.. Mostly we hunt in groups of 2-3, after the reinforcement zones were introduced we've had hunting parties as large as 7 but they are not the norm and with open battles we've had the pleasure to fight 4-5 against 25... Those generally start with 1 getting ganked by us (admittedly) and then a nation joins and we have a fun battle against the majority. For the first individual I can only offer my sympathy but that stems from a broken PvP environment atm and has little to do with finding any pleasure in a kill on a single individual. I know it's no comfort but that one individual is merely the means to get the majority out of port and into a larger battle - which we often lose out on btw since we're 4 or 5 against a full fleet. All ships can be replaced tho without much fuss..
  3. Notifications

    Hey all! I don't get notifications when ppl qoutes me and either it's a bug or I've been flipping a switch I shouldn't have when I changed name... It may be "human error" but I can't really see where the problem is..
  4. Divided nations and trust

    Getting people together for anything has nothing to do with whatever clantag they have on their back but everything to do with motivating, organizing and actually suggesting something. Go for a nice bit of PvP? - you can either do it alone (ill-adviced for most) or in a group of 2,3 or more.. Just remember - the more you bring the less likely you'll get tagged by anything. People don't need a clan tag to participate in this. Go flip a port, attack it and get some nice PB biff? - ask around, people don't need to be in the same clan, clans just need eachother on the same friendlist so ppl can actually get into the PB..
  5. [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    Wow... So.. ganking happens in a MMO??! wauw... that - quite literally - blew my mind. We just got screened out by 50 russo-americano-spanish players and all I'll have to complain about is neither sinking nor killing anything. - Gankings part of the game, the most fun? - beating a gank. Why? - nothing shows your superiority more than that. Does it happen often? - For some more than others but let's face it - some ships weather a gank better than others and some captains beats the odds more often than others. Same truth applies to all tho - we sink. Drop the debacle over who ganked who and go out there and settle it like carebears - cap an ai!

    Hear ye! Hear ye! The navy of the two kingdoms was attempting an invasion of the port of Little Cayman in order to expel the spanish navy and consolidate danish-norwegian holdings in the north west of Jamaica. The spanish armada turned up in force, along with russian and american allies. The danish-norwegian fleet was prevented entry to the port and a larger battle was fought between spanish and danish-norwegian squadrons in an attempt to force the main port battle fleet through.. This did not succeed as the spanish, russian and american armadas were too numerous for the two kingdoms to achieve success. All hail the two kingdoms!

  9. Improve Uncontested Port Battles

    32 - there's a 10 min delay on the circle capture and you need to get there too..
  10. Idiot seems to be the best applicable in terms of semantic meaning. Fool, sucker, jackass is all slang that can be used with different connotations.
  11. Graf - You're an idiot. Normally I just ignore you since the saying goes true - "Never argue with an idiot since he'll drag you down to his level and beat you on experience". I don't care wether ppl heed my advice or not - I make millions whenever I want/need it. Easy gold.
  12. As I said - Gustavia - Saint-Francois.. Bigger risk, longer sail, lower profit pr time spent. Take a closer tradegood when you go swede Graf.
  13. Except - first off - time spent. The sail from Saint-Francois to Gustavia is too long and too risky. Secondly u don't take the item that nets the largest pr item income, u take the item that nets the largest income pr weight unit. True that tax cuts into ur profits but four indiamans still carry a larger surplus than you can ever get in the same timeframe from either PvP or PvE.. And the profit is larger if your clan owns either the departure point and/or the destination point..
  14. Make Naval Action more realistic

    Ffs paintings are NOT a viable source of reference since they were used as either commemorative or celebratory events... A ship CANNOT replace a mast in open waters it needs to be more or less stationary which is not achievable unless beached.. When most recounts speaks of demastings it is either a full demasting (horrible catastrophe that would decide the engagement) or - more often - yard or rigging damage that could be replaced during the stress of either a voyage or an engagement.. These could put the ship out of contention for hours but wasn't as catastrophic as the ship retained some maneuverability..

    Clan DNP is recruiting Denmark-Norway is as always recruiting new members. We in Denmark-Norway have a lot of diversity to offer - trading and PvE'ing for the casual player, fun and engaging PvP for the more combatitive player and as always RvR for those who wish to promote the glory of our nation to the rest of the carribean.. You name it and we either have the clan or the activity for you.. DNP is a clan of RvR, PvP and from time to time PvE.. Our original focus was on PvP and this is still where the hearth resides.. We have however taken RvR to hearth in order to safeguard our nation on behalf of the free commerce and the casual players.. We seek new members willing to exchange broadsides with the enemy and to promote the interests of our nation in an engaging contest with the rest of the Caribbean.. We're an easygoing fun loving clan that in general doesn't place huge demands on our members.. Recent events do force me however to reiterate a few guidelines.. We honor our agreements at all times - even when they turn out to be against our best interests.. Our word is binding.. We fight our enemies in the hills, the beaches and on the seas. We do not waiver, we do not surrender. We conduct ourselves in a manner befitting a member of the most honorable faction in the Caribbean and we will continue to do so. We do not cry when outnumbered, we make the best of it. We ask no quarter, as we give no quarter.. Recent events has forced me to reiterate these principles by which we sail, and any member conducting themselves in a dishonorable way is ofcourse liable to disciplinary measures at all times, from a public flogging to a private beheading. Regards Lars Kjaer, Captain of his majesty's privateers port of Christiansted, 1765
