    The Lineship 'Problem'

    I don't agree with your analysis. SOLs have been used in exactly one contested PB in PvP EU and that was at Cartagena and they were 3rd rates and both sides had them (yet there was no real fighting). They were used one to raise hostility near Omoa and were countered by Basic Cutters and were used to screen the Pirate attack on Georgetown and were countered by frigates and constitutions. From the little we've seen I'd say they're not as OP as you say they are. You're right, everyone is grinding like mad to get a 1st rate PB fleet. However maintaining a 1st Rate PB after multiple battles and sailing the replacement ships from where they are crafted to the front lines is a going to be a huge logistical challenge. I don't want to make predictions, I would like to see how this plays out in a long war spread over a good chunk of the map because from what I've seen SOLs are not a silver bullet for any nation. They're obviously extremely valuable but at the moment the major advantages of SOLs has really only been psychological. In short, I don't think there's a Lineship problem but I would like to wait and see how RvR works after the patch before changing things.

    Total War against Great Britain

    we never declared war in the diplo thread. I can't remember but it was something like hostile neutrality or undeclared conflict. Which is true we fought at Santiago and you guys sailed up to Louisiana (i was genuinely impressed at) to try and screen out our fleet. We also famously clashed at Isla de Pinos. That's not war exactly but it's not peace. I had multiple convos with guys from KINGS and ROYAL, they made proposals and we considered them. You guys also said that the Brits were having organizational trouble. We've waited weeks, now you've got CM producing ports. You have a lot of players and now you have Agamemnons which are the max ship for most of your ports anyway. Chin up, the Spirit of Mantua got me and a whole lot of other guys into RvR. Let the Battle of Belize/omoa/Yucatan be your nation's crucible.
  3. I'm not sure you understand what I'm saying. That's partly my fault as I haven't expressed it the best i that post. This isn't primarily an issue about marks. Also the way Basic Cutters worked before was also flawed. We used it, it was flawed, it got changed. Now there is a new flaw and it should be changed. The comment about marks is to further point out the absurdity of current system (where we have gotten marks from sinking a ship in a Basic Cutter but when we sink we don't give marks) and the absurdity of the recent tribunal decisions that tacitly endorse the use of a Basic Cutter swarm which can/and indeed we are now using in all PvE situations to the detriment of the game. I suspect English is your second language, which is fine and good on you for communicating in your non-native tongue, but I'd rather you took the time to carefully read what I post before saying I should be embarrassed. And I genuinely would recommend this site https://www.jspell.com/public-spell-checker.html I use it a lot when I communicate in Spanish. It has saved me a lot of misunderstanding on our forum

    Basic Cutter RoE problem

    Why would it ever go away? It is the PERFECT counter to hostility raising. There is no cost and you spawn back at the nearest friendly port when you die. the enemy HAS to attack PvE fleets to raise hostility so you will always be able to get in with your ship. They spend money on repairs and if they sink they're spawned miles away and you get everything for free. So either you get constant opportunity to kamikaze or hostility never gets raised.
  5. It wasn't. It was fixed or at least an attempt was made to fix it. And there should be more than just the 'rules of the game' things should be done in 'the spirit of the game' this is a ridiculous loophole that seems to have been sanctioned by the devs. PS had you used lynxs, with 5 or 6 lynxs sunk that's near 100,000 worth of ships. That's a fair trade off. I'm not sure how much the British faction would be prepared to lose that way.
  6. The issue isn't fireships nor is it asymmetrical tactics. It's using a workaround to get a free ship meant for PvE into a battle it really shouldn't be in. Bring brigs or lynxs or whatever you want. the issue is that the Basic Cutter is absolutely free, you get no PvP marks for sinking it and so carries no risk. Seeing as your tactics have been sanctioned by the tribunal we intend to make it impossible for your puppies to do missions or operate safely doing pve and we will carry no risk. But we will get PvP marks, we already tested it out this morning on one of your captains in a snow

    Great Britain

    Total War against Great Britain

    anyone who thinks the outcome of this war is a foregone conclusion is kidding themselves. The wipe wasn't long ago, mechanics and balancing are constantly being changed and there's a HUGE difference in numbers between one clan and the most populous faction on the server. The Brits just need to put in the most miniscule amount of effort and organisation and things will already be in their favour. So pull your socks up GB and give us decent PvP and don't look around for cheap exploits. Also for the record. Spain's CM lead came from defending Santiago, defending Cartagena and taking New Orleans. All contested or screened battles and all played in the spirit of the game.

    Sometimes it is better to seek forgiveness than to ask permission

    Total War against Great Britain

    I'd think of this as a clarification of a previously nebulous state of hostility into a "the gloves are off" battle to the death.

    Total War against Great Britain

    His Most Catholic Majesty The King of Spain And of the Oriental and Occidental Indies Announces Through His Viceregal Representatives The Most Noble and August Clan: VLTRA Henceforth and without exception VLTRA refuses to deal diplomatically with the any and all clans of the British faction except through means of war. There will be no surrender accepted, no quarter given and no line that will not be crossed in our pursuit of nothing less than the complete destruction of this faction's capacity for RvR. VLTRA had previously been at war with the British and were aware of their weaknesses. VLTRA held off attacking ports for several weeks because of this and entered into several talks with representatives of the British Council. Balancing the desire for PvP and wanting to ensure that player bases aren't adversely affected is difficult. There are always times when things could be done better but we always tried to enter negotiations in good faith and in a way that would be healthy for our new server. What happened today was disgraceful and the lack of any British Council presence in their Nation Chat or Global Chat condemning what at the very least is against the spirit of the game is something that should give the faction much to reflect upon. Alea Iacta Est. PLVS VLTRA
  12. Today while raising hostility in the region of Comayagua we encountered various members of the British faction, (screenshots below) engaging in what we believe amount to griefing and exploiting with Basic Cutters in the pursuit of making RvR difficult or impossible. When we engaged AI fleets (as is necessary to raise hostility) the Basic Cutters would sail as close of possible to our fleet in Open World and then be dragged into the battle instance (due to the ROE) or would later join the battle (we believe the created instance counts as a PvE battle) with the sole purpose of setting fire to each other and exploding next to our ships. This was organised and planned on the British Nation Chat (pictures below) and done in full knowledge of how and intention to circumvent the recent ROE changes affecting Basic Cutters. The goal was purely to make it impossible to engage in either proper PvP or PvE hostility generation. http://imgur.com/a/lP2JS The organisation in Nation Chat http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950787682 The names and fireshiping http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950787527 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=950787571 Sailing close to our ships in OW. Now we believe fireships to be a legitimate tactic with plenty of evidence in history (as if Spaniards would forget about fireships :P) but this is different. Firstly because it's no risk, a Basic Cutter costs nothing and upon dying you are teleported back to the closest port. This has been brought up before in other tribunal posts and was resolved by changes to what the Basic Cutter could and couldn't attack. We understood those changes to mean that the Basic Cutter was to considered a "basic PvE ship" and even if there were workarounds. http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/20821-hotfix-1-for-patch-101/ On that understanding our main problem, and what we think is the offense is, is using PvE workarounds to engage in PvP that would otherwise be disallowed. We believe the precedent was set and the message made clear with the incident at Cap-Francais that even though the mechanics of the game might temporarily allow something, common sense and user discretion has to be an important part of making the game the best it can be. This wasn't a last resort, there was no attempt to engage our fleet with anything but Basic Cutters that weren't to even be used for PvP beyond griefing. Even while in battle many of the British Captains got around our attempts to demast the cutters by firing on each other, in violation of the rules against 'Green on Green'. http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/16347-warning-green-on-green-friendly-damage-is-no-longer-allowed/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3de9UFkG_E
  13. Neither. They tried and this time they failed but they still got a few of our ships and we were impressed they managed to get 35 captains to sail all the way to Louisiana. I think Jorge meant that it was obvious they didn't have success because Louisiana is now Spanish. Great Britain will always be the biggest faction and will always have PvP to practice with on its doorstep. Those two factors mean that Great Britain should be a long way away from being written off by anyone.

    Global or European

    I, and as far as I know all PvP1 Spanish clans (VLTRA, SH, CORS etc), will be going to PvP EU. I think EU will be busier and even if it's not I think there will be a reasonably good balance of players in the factions (apart from the US faction) which should keep RvR fun.
