  1. merge servers (PLEASE)

    The rules were not changed. They were just enforced by coding. That is EU position. For a long time there was an agreement on ROE in RVR, then one nation decided not to honor it. Now it is coded in. I am just relaying majority EU captains position. I see your point. IMHO unless you are heavy RVR player with 9-5 job outside EU, I do not see how EU is any different. ping is an issue according to my clanmates and personal observations, for Pac Rim players. I understand both sides. There just no present mechanic to come to agreement. That could change of course. I travel a lot (18 days a month), but US based on days off. My job is 24/7, so its always noon somewhere (sometimes twice a day). It was clear to me that most of the players were EU based when I bought the game. It has not changed. I made my choices accordingly. My main was ironically on PVP2/global for a while. I have not been as active, lack of motivation due to broken gameplay and constant change, and other games took NA place. I really wish we could have more action, but just do not see this with current conditions. Maybe you can proove me wrong, that happened to me before once or twice
  2. merge servers (PLEASE)

    Did you play PVP1 or PVP2? There was no server split. Same two servers with different names. Nothing changed. I played thru nightflips on PVP1 and lack of action on PVP2, both were not pleasant. EU players made it very clear, you play by their rules or not at all on EU server. There is always a choice. Might not be a good one but it is there. P.S. GMT -10 gives you very low population on EU (50-150). You still locked out of RVR. Not sure what your ping is going to be. When I play from HKG and PVG it spikes to 4-500 randomly, in NRT and ICN its 200-250 and more stable.
  3. The Pirate Nation?

    With the new clan war (ala EVE) direction, the flags will matter less and less. I doubt pirates will ever be unique. I do not think pirates should be a selectable option, you become a pirate in game. I personally would like the old Black flag (pirate republic)/Red flag (outlaw pirates) proposal with ability to earn forged papers by doing "good" deeds and becoming and outlaw by doing "bad" things to "good" people. Pirate republic would be a nation, and outlaws would be able to TP in out of free towns but could not own ports. Privateer system for Pirates would be nice, with earning reputation for tha nation who hired them, that could lead to letter of marque. Devs seem to be preoccupied with constant RVR and PVP changes. My big disappointment right now is simple lack of content. I have never played a MMO where players are expected to create the content. MOBA types games do that. MMO needs solid game content, storyline, career progression, guilds, missions, raids, etc etc. Then RVR and PVP gets incorporated into that. Pirate lore would be a part of the storyline. How did your character became a pirate? Everyone would have a story to tell.
  4. merge servers (PLEASE)

    If you followed devs instructions you have your rank and redeemable on EU server, just like you did on global. In two hours of trading you are back to your Surprise hunting grounds. I play both servers, (not that much anymore, lost the motivation) its not that complicated. Yes you would lose server specific gains, but that was your (and mine) choice to go to global or eu, or both. Now all this thread about simply not willing to live with choices we made. So we demand a handout, bailout, special accommodation. The new wipe/clan wars will kill all our accomplishments again. Just enjoy either server till then.
  5. merge servers (PLEASE)

    The ping will keep AUS/NZ/HK players off EU server. This has been discussed time and time again. The reason for the split in the first place is on global. Anyone is free to just join EU server (many already did). No reason to merge really. What are you trying to merge? Ships? Gold? Ship XP?
  6. A complete fix to RVR

    So small nation are done. They will never have the numbers. Futhermore you are forcing small nations to fight each other due to the border rules, or pick on the largest nation. Its a lose lose proposition. Unfortunatelly I do not have good solution. I applaud you for trying to fix this, but the whole idea of conquest is fundamentally flawed right now. I actually would like to try Devs newest idea of clan wars. It works great in EVE. It would limit RVR impact on small nations.
  7. Do you want XP/Gold for damage done brought back?

    It was removed due to alt farming. Untill devs find a solution it is problematic to bring it back.
  8. Port Battle Outlaw Battle Exploit global Server

    25x25 you could not join at all, just saying...
  9. Port Battle Outlaw Battle Exploit global Server

    Would it be OK for two allied fleets to do this? Lets say Danes and Dutch, or GB and US? Alliances are gone, but there are still allied nations. So 25 allied screeners tag 25 allied first rates. Should we stop all tagging before PB?
  10. [PvP Global] Political Situation and Port Battles

    Pirates did adjust their tactics, you did not, you still playing pre wipe game. Pirates won due to unpreparedeness of screening fleet, you expected same old kite game, instead you had a battle you could have joined. You had a GB basic cutter pinpointing a position of the fight. No british players elected to join the fight. Lack of planing? Cowardice? Who knows. In the end a rag tag smaller force won. Do beter next time. GB had superior numbers of equal ships in PB. GB had fort protection. And folded, acording to your own fleet leader after first two ships were sunk it was over. At that point fleets were equal and GB could have pressed the wind advantage, but instead gave up. Smaller force won. Watch the video. See the pattern yet? There was nothing new in Pirate tactics. It was used before time and time again by national fleet defensive tags of npc fleets, and pirates on PVP EU. BLACK executed it well, it is no small deal btw, takes time and practice. You know the whole planing ahead, evading enemy, timing it perfectly thing, otherwise known as tactics and strategy. Ends justifies the means. They won, you lost. Get over it. Grind it up and try again if you dare.
  11. [PvP Global] Political Situation and Port Battles

    Do you a have a historical example of 4-5 light frigates keeping a fleet of line ships form entering a battle? Or a Ship of the line battle when frigate won? In Naval Action, any competent captain of a light frigate can decimate a first rate. Its a game, get over it. Spare the Naval Academy stuff. Game availible mechanics only.
  12. [PvP Global] Political Situation and Port Battles

    What skills would that be exactly? The ones that available in game please, save the Naval Academy stuff for real world, game skill only for the group of 30-35 to overcome the group of 70-75. I am all ears.
  13. [PvP Global] Political Situation and Port Battles

    GB do not battle during screening, they grief. This is the proof. Outlaw battle is open for all to join for the whole duration. How many screeners joined and kept Pirate fleet tagged? Exactly, zero, nada, zilch. Tagging over and over again without battling is griefing. Tagging and fighting is screening. Game is broken right now, so griefing is what GB calls screening.

    Пират на пирата, нет проблем. У пиратов свои правила, а у нацыоналов свои, или поменяли опять? Не приятно что свои топят, но по правилам это разрешено.
