    Pirate Patch and Content

    Well, only a quick thought, but you could limit the rank and with this the max Crew size of pirates. That would limit the use of bigger ships and the capabilities of RVR for the pirates. As compensation give them outlaw battle again and you have a new interesting hardcore "nation". Oh, and no safezones, of course!

    Diana ship feedback - 29th August 2018

    Lost one Teak/Teak in a brawl with a 5th rate (Belle or Frigate) and 3x 6th rates (Merc, Brig & Privateer) and had another fight with Teak/Wo one against a frigate & Privateer. In both setups no premium modules, only british gunners, cotton sails and Sir Williams Congreves respectively Basic Hull. Within both fights my impression was: a) admirable turning, even tacking works like a charm b) heck, I'm loosing armor hp like melting icecream in summertime despite trying to angle In current state she's a real girl for sailing & turning but don't expose her to heavy fire, she wouldn't bounce much. Will continue to sail her, because i really like her turning, her looks and especially her attitude in the sea in battle instance. It feels real smooth and "sailish" - congratz on this job. I wouldn't go against especially Trinc or Endy with her, but with the low base speed there's no chance to escape. Against the other 5th rates she has the advantage of her turning speed and the heavy guns, so you should have a chance. Verdict: A real beauty with swiveling hips, but only for real man that don't avoid any fight - and know what they do.

    Warum bis zum Release noch spielen?

    Sieh es einfach als "Black Friday", der bestimmt irgendwann kommt, Existenzen vernichtet und neue Chancen ermöglicht. Auf Grund der immer größer werdenden Vermögen, teilweise durch dubiose Geschäfte oder Ausnutzung von Exploits muss die Wirtschaft in der Karibik irgendwann crashen - wie im wirklichen Leben, das weiß jeder, aber keiner kann Dir sagen wann es passiert. Außerdem hofft jeder, dass es nicht zu seiner Lebenszeit passiert...

    New Ship - HMS Inflatalus

    It's really hot weather, because you are a) only looking at the temperature of The Islands that are in many aspects different from the continent and b) neglecting the side effects that make this weather really hot (also Munich as example): Happy hot summer day! 😉

    Nice Figurehead - and in comparison to Santa Cecilia or Renommee not even op... 😉

    More places like Kidd's Island...

    Wonderful idea! Perhaps a restriction for shallow ships or max. 5th rates is worth considering imho

    Black Market

    Recently thinking about neglected aspects of NA, I suddenly realized that one of my dearest activities is completely missing in the poll: Smuggling Maybe it's a spleen only of me, maybe it's because a smuggler is severly hampered in game: He can't set contracts in enemy ports. For myself i tried to circumvent this problem by making deals with players from other nations or using alts. The latter one is cumbersome and the first one more difficult since we can't open a private chat with enemy players in ow any more and you always have the risk of loosing your trading partner. But I don't want to open the regular market for enemy smugglers, some ports like Esteros or Cartagena would immediately loose their status and attractivity for conquer. Instead of this i would suggest the implementation of a second market with special rules: The Black Market. Rules: - accessible only with smuggler flag or for "indigenous" nationals - instead of 10% tax a 20% gang fee /clan fee as base - no automatic dropping of goods, purely player driven The last point would lead to the mechanic that the smuggler would set for example a contract for buying teak logs and has to wait for a player to sell him some. If the price is high enough, that's a good deal for the selling national player who could buy directly on the regular market and the smuggler gets access to rare goods - for a price, of course. But with the current prices for some goods in the capitals there's still some profit for the smuggler possible. tl;dr: Implement a player-driven Black Market with higher tax for smugglers and other shady folks.

    Nothing against the display of the distance, but i want to keep the heading - it's more immersion imho. What about displaying the distance next to the heading?

    Increase the daily number of tows to pvp zones

    Sorry Sir, to contradict to you: That's NAL NA is combat in sailing ships AND interaction in an open world

    Merge the nations!

    1st: It's not declining since several months 2nd: The sea is usually wide and some people draw excitement from the uncertainty what may linger behind the horizon

    #NoToTow. There is still a ow beside pvp-circus and safezones and it's not an issue to supply most of the free ports with ships and repairs. Tumbado has usually a good stock of repairs - although expensive, but that's only the compensation for the traders risk to haul them there. You could easily open outposts in several freeports and buy ai ships for the patrol or tow one there per day if ya insist. But excessive towing per day is only lame. That's still a sailing game, goddammit!

    You're a pirate and need a ship? Go and capture one! Or make a deal with the devil and sell your black soul for one! If the devil is busy at the moment, perhaps a national will suffice... I wouldn't mind if pirates could only live out of freeports and maintain none or only small shipyards (lvl 1 or max. 2). And i even can't imagine Captain Jack Sparrow doing woodworks - would be much too dangerous!

    Merge the nations!

    Come on guys, nations don't really matter with your rvr problem, so let them stay. RvR isn't everyones darling, especially if you're not inclined to play 4-5 hours several days in a row. And maybe still some people prefer to hunt solo or in small groups in enemy waters - and sometimes it happens that they fly the black i was told... ;-) But it is a good idea to make pirates the most vile hardcore nation with NO safe zones and WITH outlaw battles.
