    Defense options against 'spies' in your nation

    Guys this will not work! Who should have the right to judge? Read the posts in Forum and you can easily recognize, that a lot of players accuses even the devs of partisanship. Should "we" elect an high Court and who is "we"? Spies are no real problem! They are annoying, sometimes a little bit silly.
  2. Like admin declared: "Intermediate materials will be converted into raw materials", "the effects of loss or gain will be minor". If you will be totaly shure use all intermediate materials (in your list the "compenants") Forum could be so much slimmer if everybody reads the announcements carefully. The "wipe" isn't a wipe where you loose things. You have to expect a slimmer list of materials that are needed to craft a ship.

    Issue with chain?

    Every time a gamemechanic means a disadvantage, people complains about what shouldn't be or discussing cheating. This forum and global chat is full of posts that only have one intenion: "it's impossible that I cannot win". In this case christendom hits the nail on the head - a good preparation is the first step to win in PVP. I'm surely only an average player (sometimes more noob than anything other) and don't drive totaly pimped ships, but in 9 of 10 pvp battles near or in enemy safezoens people are not able to win against my teak/teak conny with cotton sails and basic upgrades for hull and penetration. First reason - the tag of them is totaly rubbish.

    Compass Rose

    The ingame compass rose is divided in steps of 15 degree, means there are 24 marks at the circle This isn't a compass rose division. A normal compass rose is divided in winds an has therefore 16 marks with each compass point at a 22,5° angle. The 16 half winds are N, NNE NE, ENE, E (and so on). The next possible division of a compass rose has 32 winds an is divided in 11,25° angles. These 16 additional quarter winds are north by east (NbE), northeast by north (NEbN), northeast by east (NEbE), east by north (EbN) .... I think compass roses should be changed: In Open world in a 32 wind compass and in battle in a 16 wind compass! 16 winds 32 winds

    What's this? Salty because you get contradiction!? If you are able to teach people, they will do more pvp. They have a chance without loosing ships to train tactics, to learn the difference between fighting AI or player. They can even find out how you can fight against different builds. As rediii said: "queue only works in the same nation ... done" You have no proper arguments.

    Can't find anything against this suggestion. Quite the contrary, we (sry; most of us) want more pvp. Let's give a nation the ability to educade players in pvp. We have the fleet practice option, which helps for RVR and other big fleet battles. But there is no possibilty to teach the basics or strategies in small pvp. rediii doesn't expect any reward!

    hostility poll

    Others. Let's do hostility by missions or openworldpve or pvp. But bring a relation between port BR and hostility ship BR. The current system make ports with less BR nearly undefendable, means the announcement of 25% in combat news appears and they are nearly done. Hostilty in 10 1st-rates for a port of ~2500Br is instantly done (there are a lot of ports with less BR in deep water). Normaly these hostility fleets can't be intercepted. Well defenders have to wait till next evening and fight the port battle.

    Patch 18: BR and Smuggler fix

    Why is there still a restriction for traders to get into enemy ports? The "smuggler" option is now totaly useless. You can't dock in enemie ports with a battle ship even if you use the smuggler flag Smuggler flag has no influence on battle flag If you "forget" to use the smuggler flag as a trader you can't dock in enemie ports, this means you can't escape in enemie ports. This means "smuggler" function only punishs the players on trader ships, who forget to click the option. So delete this useless option! All trader ships should be allowed to use all ports.

    This is poor. The destiny of the game depends on one guy?

    The Royal Dutch Provinces declare war.

    With a big respect on the achievments of rediii, he made his decision and sweden will not die. Sweden is a little bit sleeping, but we will come out of hibernation. By the way there are a lot of british ships filled with swedish iron at the moment

    The Royal Dutch Provinces declare war.

    As a former player in swedish nation you should know how a clan can be part of the council. But for a short term memory I explain it again. It is a simple as possible and no secret - come to nation TS and you can be part of the council My clan came after the big wipe in 2017 to sweden. We answered on the prompts in nation chat, after that we get TS-rights and were automaticaly part of the council. Yesterday we invited again all clans to TS and to council. You are far away from reality. Maybe it's better to be with your alter ego and pick some flowers on island mainau in Lake Constance, than to scoff at something you can't know in its current characteristics.
  13. Hurra! Now chains will get a limited tactical option like "double charge" and "double ball" and not the stupid bumbum-shooting of ganker fleets.
