    DLC in the future?

    I want to see a longer cool-down for the DLC ships. Make it redeemable once a week, or something like that. They shouldn't be treated as bigger basic cutters, but thats what it feels like with the 24 hr cool-down. Other than that, I personally don't want a currently accessible ship to become a DLC, although a refit version of an existing one could work nicely. Pirate Indiaman?

    Repair Balancing

    Yeah, I agree with pretty much every bit of this. I know the goal was to allow players to have a better chance fighting multiple enemies, but the result has been the opposite. I used to feel like I had a good chance in even ships 1v2, 1v3, or maybe even 1v4. Now, I still go for it, but my chances are much lower. Its just impossible to compete with 4 repairs for my 1, unless the enemy are complete idiots. Mostly, I don't like how the current system covers up people's mistakes. Before, 1 mistake could be the difference between winning and losing a fight. It felt like the fights described in Patrick O'Brians books, or the movie Master and Commander. In a chase, a couple degrees could be the difference between escape and capture. Now, its how long do I have until my next repair.

    2 banished people are 1 too many!

    Maybe if @rediii buys him the DLC? 🤔

    Penetration and damage

    That's the amount of penetration. Something like a 42 lb long gun will cause damage on the side, middle, and maybe even a bit on the opposite side of small ships. A 4 lb gun won't make it that far, and won't hurt anything except the original side, until the side is nearly gone. You see this a decent amount with close range Carronades, because they have high pen at close range. I remember this was obvious when dueling Hatchi one time, him on Trinc, myself on Endy. My 24lb guns we're doing a decent amount of structure damage (minimal bow/stern raking, mostly from broadside damage) and his 18s we're not doing much structure damage to me. In a long fight it begins to make a difference. He was down 3 bars after a while, and it began hurting his speed.

    pve server name

    The names have to be clear, otherwise people will join the wrong one and then possibly get frustrated when they have to start over on the other.

    wasa fir/fir for pvp?

    Okay. If you go absolutely all-out speed, you could get to 13.75 kn. Details explained below. Woods = Fir/fir Permanent mods = Copper Plating + Navy Hull Refit + Naval Clock Skillbooks = Optimized ballast + Art of ship handling + Art of proper cargo distribution + Trim Speed + Light Carriages Guns = Max caliber mediums on the bottom two decks + Carronades on top + Max caliber longs for chasers Perks = Optimized hold required Repairs = 50 (hull) + 50 (rig) + 300 (rum) - This is already WAY below what I would recommend taking This is assuming its a normal 3/5 ship without speed trims. A setup like this is already low on repairs, and by going for speed with every skillbook, you will have a difficult time standing up to anything larger than a light frigate. I would not recommend going with a setup like this. The speed was found using a speed calculator I made a while back, I don't have a ship like this

    Griefing After PB is Over and Won

    I was never presented with proof that staying in the PB when it is over is against the rules. You didn't leave, so I stayed to try and kill more of you. It was 1v6, but you all ran away. I still don't think this is against the rules. At no point was I attempting to stay away from your ships or guns. I was actually chasing you until we were kicked to the Open World. I'm interested to see what the devs will say about this.

    I know most of us were very happy when you chose to leave, so please dont come back.

    The state of the game and how we might move it forward.

    Reffering to your point on BR PB's, I think if we went back to the old system, you wouldn't see nearly as many battles happening. I can guarantee that Prussian ports would eventually vanish, because we wouldn't be able to fill 25 player PB's consistently. Right now we fight probably 2-5 Port battles a week, that's a lot of lost content, and that's not even looking at other nations. Also it wouldn't be a solution for us to simply join a large nation, as many of our guys would probably just stop playing. We've been in large nation like GB and Pirates before, and we don't enjoy it.

    Port Battle Screenshots (New BR)

    Yup, I boarded Crusty at the start, Niagara and I (in Requin) sandwitched him. Then fought 1v2 and killed enemy Requin with guns, then boarded the last Niagara as the battle ended (we had two full rounds of boarding with the battle over. He could have left if he had noticed).

    385 crew La Requin

    I would have killed you with 200 men, 385 just saved some time

    Hugging "Tactics" and Hercs

    Hercules still feels strange to fight against, especially in large ships. I had a long fight against one where I was in a Bellona, and he was in a Hercules with Carronades + a Hercules in his fleet. I ended up sinking him, but the extremely high turning, acceleration, and annoyingly small hull make it a nightmare to handle. I am a very experienced Bellona captain, and it took me over an hour to finish him off. This was partly due to the fact that he ran out of rig repairs. I kept his sails low with a mix of chain and mast shooting, although I couldn't get a mast to drop until the end. I think Hercules still needs a bit of a Nerf to it's turning and or acceleration. It feels like a snow, but it punches like a large 5th rate.

    Nope, LT is our Capital

    Port Battle Screenshots (New BR)

    This battle wasn't remotely close at any point in time, so I agree, people shouldn't read into it too much. Pirates were short a few ships, and they made very stupid decisions. Still, the diversity is making shallow battles much more interesting 😀

    Issue with friendly clan list

    Has been this way since friend list was added. You have to add friendly clans BEFORE the PB starts. Only option after that is to leave clan and join a clan that is on the list.
