    Hugging exploit

    We have in game the Determined Defender perk precisely to avoid that, and almost everyone uses that perk (even you if I'm not wrong). How about that? 😃

    Hugging exploit

    Maybe was not them, but we already saw knowned streamers do this tactic many times. Some say it's a valid tactic, and yes it is, after all this is only game and this game mechanics permit those kind of actions. But in RL 2 frigates wouldn't dare to attack a first rate, it would be an insane maneuver and few percentage of sucess, maybe a court martial in the end for endangering their ships and crew in that crazy attack. Even in fiction it's a crazy move, in the tv series Black Sails, captain Flint knows that will have 50% or less chance of success when Walrus and Ranger attack that spanish galleon... and we all saw how it ended for him.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    I believe he forgot I was with him in that battle too, and I think he also forgot if he was alone with the prussian L'Ocean, Staun would go down fairly easy since the other player was doing well. No problem, I'm used to that 😁

    Blame devs for everything

    Used to be the motto of some british players when things didn't go well for the nation. Just used it here for some humor 😄

    Pirates vs Portuguese

    I didn't understand my topic, I'm not interested in that game gameplay mechanics, it's just a pity that Ubisoft give more importance to a naval nation like Portugal and Naval Action didn't.

    NA have "arcade" mods, if they have the opposite may be worth trying.

    Caribbean Invasion News

    Happened the same to me in french waters a month ago, I had a huge revenge fleet after me but most of them were big and heavy and I could outrun them with my faster frigate. Then they sent a fast snow to tag me, so all those slow and heavy french ships jumped on top of me after the snow tag. My advantage over them (speed) was negleted by these magic safezone circles.

    [Caribbean] the state of pvp

    Well, this is a game, practice and gameplay hours have alot of weight on your sucess but what makes 2 or 3 players win against 12 is the magic modules and magic repairs. As much captain Decatur was good and USS President was a great ship, he couldn't avoid being captured by HMS Endymion, HMS Pomone and HMS Tenedos.

    The Venetian Arsenal: From City-State to World Power

    The venetians had a great comercial monopoly in the Mediterranean Sea but couldn't rival with Spanish empire and Portuguese empire in the rest of Europe. When the portuguese reached India by sea and opened another door in Europe for the spices, was a big blow on Venetia comercial power. Disguised venetian agents travelled to India in the 4th Armada to India and their objective was to sabotage the portuguese and Cochin relations and to forge 5 big cannons to Calicut forces (Zamorin declared war on Cochin and their allies, the portuguese garrison). "The Battle of Cochin, sometimes referred as the Second Siege of Cochin, was a series of confrontations, between March and July 1504, fought on land and sea, principally between the Portuguese garrison at Cochin, allied to the Trimumpara Raja, and the armies of the Zamorin of Calicut and vassal Malabari states. The celebrated heroics of the tiny Portuguese garrison, led by Duarte Pacheco Pereira, fended off an invading army several hundred times bigger. It proved a humiliating defeat for the Zamorin of Calicut. He not only failed to conquer Cochin, but his inability to crush the tiny opposition undermined the faith of his vassals and allies. The Zamorin lost much of his traditional authority over the Malabar states of India in the aftermath. The preservation of Cochin secured the continued presence of the Portuguese in India."

    Boarding + 'Determined Defender' suggestion

    If you need Determined Defender removed to win a battle... you are a poor sailor.

    Why not have sailing in the OW?

    It's a pity you never cross with me on OW while alt tabbed, I love to intercept and spoil movie sessions and reddit readings while they are AFK.

    Spain Land Jump

    Jamaica is even worse, they are surrounded by everyone, but you don't see them teleporting from KPR to Saint Ann and avoiding a trip along the safezones gaps. Those teleports from Batabano to Habana should be fixed as soon as possible.
  21. 1. situational awareness 2. Tagging (a good tag is half battle won) 3. Knowledge about ship differences (you must know what you and your enemy can do during battle and plan accordingly to that)
  22. Cabral

    Simple action sounds.

    That's the wet dream of AFK players, if you are watching a movie while sailing you must accept the risks. I don't agree with this suggestion, the others are ok, but this one brings too many questions.

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    Yo no te odio, la mitad de lo que digo es solo roleplay, es el viejo sentimiento de los portugueses después de la muerte del rey D Sebastián y la pérdida de la independencia que dejó un gran amargo en la boca. Tengo que reconocer que las colonias portuguesas no siempre foran pacíficas, pero en los estados de la historia cuentan que eran menos violentas que la españolas. Hasta en las películas ustedes siempre son los malos. 😜 En cuanto a la nación española en el juego, podré jugar en vuestra nación en el futuro. Me gustaría experimentar más naciones y España no está excluida. Alucard, espero que no haya más resentimiento entre nosotros, ya es hora de olvidar esta rivalidad antigua, después de todo, esto es sólo un juego. Saludos y buenos vientos

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    Hold on there, portuguese acted differently from the spanish, you can't put both in the same bag. While the spanish used violence against the Aztecs, Incas and Mayas to get gold, the portuguese used a friendly aproach to brasillian natives with trade agreements and gifts (mirrors, spoons, etc... things they had never seen). In India was the same thing, and we only used arms against them a few times because we were forced to that not by own initiative. In Japan we made trade with them peacefully, we even introduced them for the first time firearms and gunpowder.
