    Cosmetic DLC is where it's at.

    Disable Friendly Fire

    I don't know about that one. If you are in a clan and you accepted the player, unless he's being a blockhead on purpose it's kind of the clan's responsibility to train him or help him along to cure the problem. Another reason a duel room would be helpful.
  3. Dual-boxing is pay to win, is cheating, and is an unfair advantage. This argument was settled over a decade ago, and you've disappeared for a year.

    Disable Friendly Fire

    I agree. In the context of practice and/or having fun together, FF is necessary. Adding penalties would reduce that type of fun to nothing or eliminate it.

    TESTBED - Port User Interface Feedback.

    Where's @Hethwill the Red Duke when you need him to clean this thread? Can't get to all the Port UI Feedback amidst all the whining and moaning (which should be on Steam and not in this thread). Delete this post too once you clean it.

    Replace EU Trader with new mechanic

    Spreadsheets to multiply by 4? Can you explain that? Where did you make such a case it requires a spreadsheet? Players have plenty of gold. Find the port with the resource, buy it for 4x. No Excel necessary. Still rich.

    Replace EU Trader with new mechanic

    The economy is not fluent so the EU trader isn't really breaking anything. But it is hidden, very true, and no in-port guidance on how to purchase. So a tutorial or some basic purchase instructions would be helpful. I do not agree with deleting it. However if you think it limits player sales then perhaps your suggestion should include a limit to purchases rather than an overhaul. BTW it is not complex. How complex is multiplying by 4 and making a purchase for that amount? If players can learn how to manually sail they can learn how to multiply by 4.

    My port, my monopoly.

    Agreed that they should have [more] control. That's discussed in other threads. To suggest no one else can perform commerce is counterproductive.

    My port, my monopoly.

    Before reacting too quickly......are you actually suggesting that a given nation's citizens are not allowed any commerce outside of their capital region unless they have captured a port? Really? Players today : 600 Players after such a suggestion is enacted : 200 But maybe I misinterpreted. Trying not to say inconceivable. Besides, there are plenty of threads on this forum discussing clans rights after port capture, why do we need another one? Add to theirs.

    Getting a new player into the game

    I didn't want to be negative, but I do have to agree with this. Every game, one needs to adapt and learn, or just move on. I hope you can convince him to branch out and try new things.

    Game Jumping to Windows?

    This is my experience as well. It happens in any game whenever Windows in its infinite wisdom decides that something needs immediate attention. You lose focus on the game and Windows focuses on the other activity. For me it happens most frequently when there's a power blip and my UPS sends a signal. Then I get a warning dialogue that says how much power is left in the UPS. I lose focus and some games pause, others minimize. Could be that your computer has a background task that is taking priority (and focus) frequently. Can't imagine it's NA.

    predator of the requin needed

    Now that actually did make me laugh out loud. I had to look around to see if anyone thought I was crazy.

    War of the lovers revisited

    There was a suggestion a while back that control for a port was determined by a series of battles over a period, a day for example, not just 1 decisive battle. I like this idea, because then timers would be irrelevant, and global activity would matter, not continental activity. You could organize with your clans globally. Only drawback is for smaller nations, but we already have that and always will.

    predator of the requin needed

    Best suggestion I've seen on this forum in a long time.
