    Combat News & Player Names - sligthly Change

    Good idea.
  2. Quick Poll on the Event Zone RoE. I like the general idea of the event zones. Players looking to PvP can fight each other. But I dont like how they're implemented. For example - you find yourself a decent frigate fight, say 2 vs 3. Can't believe your luck and are all excited. Only to find out, that 20 minutes into the fight, heavy reinforcments are coming in, until the BR is filled - can be like 10 4th rates or whatever. Do you like it as it is? Hence my suggestion: All battles in the zone first stay open for 3 minutes (?) for anyone to join, no BR restrictions That way you cannot get locked out of a Battle just because you were a tad outside the tagging circle in OW After those 2 minutes, Players can join each sides until it has reached 1.5x (?) the BR of the other side. Just watched Cpt. Reverse's stream - He found himself a surprise duel vs. a pirate. 10 minutes later, he got reinforcments of 4 ships (5th and 4th rates) on his side. I do not think they should have been allowed to join that battle.

    Name 5 things you would like to see in NA

    Fixed patrol zone RoE

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    I dont think I have ever sailed a golden ship since quality was re added Blue does just fine, if its got an extra slot and / or gets an extra trim sure thats better but doesnt make me use the ships with more care
  5. Easiest fix: Make safezones 100% safe again, but also slightly reduce their size And Fix patrol zones RoE -> More PvP between players wanting to pvp Downside is that "protecting your shores" is eliminated because the game does it for you. One layer of RvR, solo hunting in hostile waters, erased - But I guess you cant have a cake and eat it too.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    So when fc barcelona is able to defeat a local towns club 25:0, is there also something wrong? Practise Rewards you, which is good IMO

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    Patrol zones were first used by a lot of Players, noobs and vets Until the gank squads realised how easy it is to exploit the crappy RoE of 30 min open battles without restrictions. Set a bait battle and have the rest join in once the fish is trapped. I am sure with a more balanced RoE these patrol zones would be used again and become popular. Personally Im not playing atm because first of dont have as much time to spend and secondly cant be arsed to get screwed over by players joining half an hour into a battle over and over again.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    I cant understand all the fuss NA is a game that rewards you as you are getting better and more experienced. It teaches you to take the initiative and engage actively, and not to kite Spend more time "practising" and youll get better. Seems fine to me.
  12. A "story mode" in AAA games provides content for what, 50-75 hours? In an MMO the "real" content is interaction with other players, be it as PBs or ow PvP. So lets focus on making these more enjoyable - there are some good ideas ingame already but not with the right settings (e.g. patrol zones).
  13. The button "craft ship" should be press-able if all ressources and / or materials are in the warehouse, to instantly turn them into mats required and the ship aswell in one click. That way the ones liking doing every single click manually get their share, and others just interested in just the outcome (the ship) get theirs. But thats most likely not gonna happen now with the new crafting units system. We'll see what it brings.

    Stern rake and damage model

    People tend to forget that combat in NA is way sped up - tacking a SoL ingame takes a minute or two at max. whereas IRL the whole manouver could easily take 15 minutes. Same goes for any other manouver. ships are way more responsive in game. As a result you get the possibility to rake quite often, whereas in reality you couldnt just "swing back around" and go for another second rake a minute later. That is why individual rakes cannot be as effective as they are in reality.
  17. 1) not caring who the enemy captain is-If you start a battle vs a vet which you fear alone from reading the name, you put yourself at a disadvantage, because that "fear" or respect doesnt allow you to make full use of your knowledge. 2) situational awareness 3) angling!

    Limit missions

    That argument just doesnt work On steam release we didnt have any kind of safe zone, no fleet missions either. It also took way more XP to lvl up. Yet we had a full server. After 100s or 1000s of hours you just get bored and leave (for a while or forever). I think a big part as to why we had a full servee at first is because Naval Action was on the "bestsellers" list on steam for a day or two (I think even place 1 for a short time), because people who owned sea trials (old NA) got their copy of NA. Personally I wouldnt have seen the game if i had not checked best sellers on that very day. Conclusion: "advertising" is key for fresh blood and thus more salt and energy which fuels RvR and the game. But that should only happen once UI and tutorial is done
  20. Make safezones a little smaller but also 100% safe And fix the patrol zone RoE.

    Possible Game Manipulation

    To me this sounds like the broken part Dont like the spawn options in reinforcment zones.

  24. Not salty but kind of funny how different perceptions can be. IMHO only if you fully go past worrying about losing your gear (in a winnable occasion, winnable can also be alone 1v2 at times), you develop more confidence and thus fight better
