    Path to Enlightenment

    Ahhh the mind...what a character to observe....but you are not that. Find out "what" observes the thought and feeling "I". Contemplate this while you allow me to peacefully sink your ship. May the blessings of your loot be upon me. lol OM...glug glug....OM

    Would you buy a HMS Pickle dlc?

    Buying the Pickle? Given the game now, no. Given the game of the future - or like i present below...maybe. I can absolutely see the majority of ships in this game eventually becoming dlc. At least to the point that the ships that are crafted and have extra slots/trims would become more powerful than the dlc (obviously buffed). You could play the game with dlc at any level, but if you really want a powerful ship, you have to grind/craft in game. I feel like an eventual balance similar to this will occur. This is not a desire, but rather an observation and possible result that includes a balancing theory.

    To what are our Victory Marks attached ?

    At present, Victory marks are attached to your name/account - not clans. I have no experience with keeping Vic marks after a name change, so I cannot say how that will turn out.

    reinforcement Zone vs. capturable ports

    No...its unwise to "require" it in order to get good trims/builds

    reinforcement Zone vs. capturable ports

    I dont like that mechanic at all. The end result of making "special building ports" is horrible. We tried this before and it failed miserably. It will negatively impact the player base...especially single players who dont have the time to move their whole operation to some temporarily held port just to get a trim. No thanks. For me its not worth the time and effort. Which means access to crafting the really good ships becomes extremely rare. Tailoring the game in this way is unwise. This "captured trim port" mechanic is for clans and the rest of the population just has to "hope" a good trim building port gets taken and is held long enough to set up production. To hell with that.

    About Reinforced Stern

    Personally, I use it on some of my 3rd, 2nd rate ships. Especially those slower ships that lose more crew than others. The difference is noticeable when you get raked. Of course a skilled player can work around, however, overall I recommend it for a ship with limited maneuverability.

    Command ship and crew using voice (VoiceAttack)

    I use this as well at times. I have a full profile set, though it needs some modification. I wanted to mention that besides the electronic voice used, you can also use it to macro additional short audio files located on your pc that can work well with the machine voice. For example, when I use my telescope, the pirate from sponge bob says "there she blows!".

    wows player here.

    Hey. I alpha tested and have played wows a long time too. I came to NA and now have over 3500 hours - rarely play wows. Up until recently, i was playing on a system older than yours with a gtx 650 - and i was getting 25-45 FPS. There is a solo game. It can be simple or complex, it depends on the time you give it. I have played as a single or one man clan player for almost all the years ive been playing. I can trade, fight on my own, help another clan, build ships - whatever i want. As for sailing and trading...again it depends on your goals as to how tedious it becomes. Trading for money, trading for resources to sell, trading for materials for upgrades or building a fleet of ships. What you should know about playing is this: Complete the tutorial. Ask for help. Joining a clan can be very helpful. And most importantly...Never forget...ITS JUST A GAME

    Dismasting / Destruction

    I agree with what HachiRoku said. In addition, I believe the addition would involve substantial artist time. I can certainly see it as a layered patch series down the line though. It would be pretty awesome.
  16. Thank you for the update. Good luck with the repair.

    Labour Hours Shortage

    Use labor contracts. you can buy them, or exchange 150 combat marks for 10. each contract gives 500 hours

    Rare books DLC

    Buying flags that carry bonuses, or dlc with copper plat. carta, etc. However, I think some of the rare books need to stay rare and only found in game.

    My reasons why this Game will never Succeed....

    I already got my 40 dollars worth of fun a long time ago...so all the fun Im having now is just gravy. Yes, things need working on, but I still believe this game has a bright future.

    bring back storm battle or storm istance

    The Devs have already answered this request. They will never have the large wave battles again - no matter how bad we wanted it. They said that was their final word. Their artist would have to redraw everything again they said. Like you, I wish the big waves were in the game.

    Hurricane Regatta ... a tribute

    Parrot Shipyards proudly presents: Hurricane Regatta ...the deadliest race on the water. A word of tribute to those who will die... ...and to those watching them die. Very soon, a date will be announced for the Pirate Nations Hurricane Regatta. Of course, players of all nations can play by hunting Pirate contestants - 3 of which will be worth 1 million gold each. For the Pirates finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd - a Grand prize package awaits you. Lets just say its value is already WAY above the 20 million of my last contest - and still growing. (Thank you to all players - pirate and non pirate - for your donations to the prize pool so far.) ....and now for the tribute.... Captains, Right now, even before the date is announced... Captains are preparing, building some of the fastest Trader Lynx to ever sail these waters. They are enlisting the help of others as escort and body guard. Discussing strategy, guessing about routes and trying to plan for the unknown. Even with the knowledge that they may face an armada of enemy - they sail on. To those Captains, we salute you. o7 And right now, as those Pirate Captains prepare...others plan. Enemy from every nation are building incredibly fast chase ships - hunters that will show no mercy. They are researching routes, hiding places. They are planning hunting groups and staging deadly ships everywhere - trying to be a step ahead. They are resolute in their job as the bringer of death. To those Captains, we salute you. o7 To all Captains, Make no mistake, many many ships will be sinking during the Hurricane Regatta. During this carnage, it is important to remember - it is just a game! Plan ahead. Make several back up ships. Good luck and fair winds to all. (Regatta date will follow the next economy/crafting wipe)

    Happy treason day to my fellow ungrateful colonials

    Im sorry, but any army that marches through the woods in Bright Red and white uniforms is asking to be shot. Its nice to know you fellas are into bright colors though. If i ever need a dress for my wife, I know who to come to.
