    The issue with this game is for the new and casual player to expand beyond their capital area and this attraction these capital areas have for large hunting fleets. These large hunting fleets or more correctly consistent hunting around the capital regions where new and casual players are locating have not helped the servers population. This is not the complete faults of the experienced hunters who are only going where there is a high chance of a battle to occur. It is also not the faults of the casual and new players for staying in those said regions which they start from, resources/trading are located, and quick means of entertainment against ai and rewards. The game development needs to solve some of these issues. One individual stated making the capitals less of a trade hub where you can take goods from and sell for high prices but rather make them places where you can sell goods at removing the desire of holding that as a permanent outpost. Spread those trade resources out. Remove the reinforcement zones. They are not useful. Otto said it best where the only reliable protection is another player. If the devs want to make a protected area for these new and casual players like they probably should do they need to create a certain zone around the capital where PvP is not possible and that PvE rewards are only experience and limited gold. Just an idea quickly mashed together for this post. Majority of games similar to Naval Action have such a thing that divides the PvE sections from PvP. Do not agree it should be as significant as most of those games but there needs to be something. There also needs to be a better incentive for these new and casual players to move out from the capital areas such as better RNG in crafting, better resources, better content, etc. This would reduce the contact of the hunters around the capital regions and actually help the growth of the server and potentially see vacant parts of the map populated slightly if not significantly depending on the increased value of those regions. Also another idea since I was interrupted mid-writing of this and just started rambling losing my place, I apologize, is have players activity in areas be more of a significant impact of the values of ports and definitely fix taxes which has hurt RvR for a lot of people.

    Agree to a point. Maximum benefit for maximum risk part I agree with you. Tuck best trader in US I disagree with. He was a good trader. He has gotten better the past few months.

    Could have been an alt. Another issue.

    Lol! If you want a "great battle" go attack Sweden, Danmark, or even Espana for that matter. They will actually make an attempt to sink you guys rather than just focus on bogging their opponents down and that is all. These US players did in their mix mess of ships was follow a man with no competent battle calling experience or leadership. Some of us were wanting a good fight but saw not everyone had the same idea and broke off from the battle. Including myself who wanted a good fight last night and had to settle for being ganked just to sink one player. So if you want a "great battle" that is competitive then the US coast during a port battle is not the place at this moment. We have lost enough players from this game to farming and the last thing we need is a enemy port even closer.

    Lost ship due to disconnect

    Was there in that said Santisma. The disconnect was not the part that killed him. When the disconnect occurred, if it even did occur, Boom ship was behind mine and I had to turn my Santi around after I had been lowering my sails previously in a attempt to stop him from stern camping. By the time I was able to turn around and get half my side on him he was back. He had multiple chances to get away and a few chances where his fellow captains such as Xsyter were able to shield him but failed to do so completely and I was able to get a few cannonballs into him to finish him off. I am my only witness since I doubt any of the French players will speak the truth if it means one of their own have their ship return to them and there were no other US players in the battle. If Boom does get his Ingermanland back I would like to have my Santisma back @Ink. Fair is fair.

    Name 5 things you would like to see in NA

    A lot of what you stated I agree with. It has become a hindrance to a nation when they cannot leave their capital because they have to constantly spend their time there dealing with enemy players not to mention rather than spreading things out through the map, having the ability to have combat next to a capital places majority of player activity to small sections of the map, not to mention hurts the game overall by aggravating and pushing away new and casual players who are constantly being harassed every day by enemy players at the capitals which is the only location where most of them starting out can make gold via trading. Not to mention the battles that are created around capitals tend to be lopsided or a group of experienced players vs. inexperienced and unorganized groups which does not create good content. 1. what Vazco stated 2. more OW content. Currently the game is very dry. You really only can do a few things such as PvP, PvE, and trading just to name a few. There is a lack of variation to create extended retention in a players interest which is needed for such a game. Have monthly events or free DLC campaign like content drop four times a year or something. Create interest in a game do not let it get stale and rot. 3. Removal of the three new nations and make Pirates the only hardcore nation. Been saying it for a while even while being apart of one of those three said nations. Prussia right now is a prime example of what Pirates should be in the final product. 4. I do not care or want to see name or clans back in OW, but I do want to see what a fleet has in it. Right now the game looks like it went backwards when it comes to identifying an enemy player and needs to be improved with letting the players know what a person has in their fleet since we cannot identify those ships by looking at a player in OW. 5. More control by clans concerning ports and other clan items of attention.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    Completely agree and understand. I look at this upcoming patch as well and it does not even look like it will keep me in the game very long either since it does not really address much.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    Exactly. There is a lack of retention for new and casual players and too much from the current player base and lack of content that tends to drive them away. It becomes a constant grind and die fest for the majority of them which obviously over time is exhausting and frustrating.

    Boarding + 'Determined Defender' suggestion

    I would not call it much of an argument when the majority of the participants agree.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    A lot of the "coast guard" stuff that occurs is reactionary and not planned out. At least in the United States and in Great Britain for my year tenure, there is no strict doctrine of sorts concerning a first response towards farmers. It tends to be whomever is in the general area at the time who is able to be mustered and there is very little organization in forming up. Why should there be anyways? Majority of these people around the capital regions are just looking for NPC targets as a means to grind slots, casual play, or training, along with people simply trying to build up their economy and resources to potentially push out of the capital region and do some PvP hunting of their own or other activities of such nature. Unfortunately, they tend not to have the time nor chance to do so. Majority of the people looking for PvP or are worth a challenge are not anywhere near their own capitals but instead looking elsewhere hunting.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    Compared to how bad they were splitting up and leaving them before, yeah it is an improvement much like Texas said.

    Boarding + 'Determined Defender' suggestion

    Agreed with Privateer and I am not a person that likes to board one bit, choosing to sink my targets with metal and fire. The determined defender perk is just too strong of a perk especially for how much it costs. It does need to be altered where it still helps in preventing rage boarding but is not a determining factor where it can prevent boarding as much as it currently does.

    It was not up to those players criticizing Rax about a "fair fight." Why should we waste our time?

    The Free State of VCO

    It was not just the devs mate that "ruined it." Players had a good hand in the progressing in some cases retrogress the state of the game and its player base.

    Spain Land Jump

    every nation has players that use a tow to port exploit such as the one stated here. No point in calling the kettle black, but rather just make an F11 stating the exploit which I do agree is somewhat game breaking to a degree.
