  1. since it seems like the dev team is working on the UI (or about to start), I wanted to give a suggestion I made a few months ago a bump...
  2. Happy New Year

    I would like to wish you all a very happy new year. May it bring us and the rest of the world much needed peace and happiness.
  3. Return to Main Menu

    When a player starts NA, he/she is taken to the first menu that consists of the available servers, currently: PvE Only and PvP Caribbean. If the Player chose PvE server, then he/she is taken to the menu that shows his/her Character (s). On that menu, there are only two options: chose your character and start the game or Exit the game altogether. If a player chose a server, then changed his/her mind and wanted to go to the other server, the player has to exit the game completely and then restart the game to go back to the main Servers menu! Would it be possible in addition to the Exit option add a Return to Main Menu option to go back to the main menu in order to change servers instead of exiting the game completely? Thank you,
  4. Give some Love to the PvE Server.

    Personally I feel the dev team has been working on making great improvements to the core of the game, of course mostly focusing on PvP mechanics right now, however the improvements (ship characteristics, models, game mechanics) will eventually benefit the PvE server in the long run. I'm still hopeful they are actually aware of its potential. These efforts are in no way wasted, but with some adaptation to the PvE server play style and addition of PvE specific changes, they will greatly improve the outcome and increase the interest and the longevity of this amazing game. Many PvE players have made great suggestions over the months I've been playing this game, which shows significant dedication to NA. Keep it up.
  5. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. May these Holidays bring all of you good health, happiness and most importantly, countless hours of PvP action.
  6. Credit where credit is due

    I just redeemed the Agamemnon and was very impressed with the ship model. I know most of you have seen and maybe played every ship in the game, but I am a slow player who enjoys every ship I own to the fullest. I am so enthralled with the rendering of these magnificent ships I still spend most of my sailing time using the free cam and looking at the ships in every angle. Now that I discovered how to move around with the free cam, I have been going into the bowels of each ship and appreciate the work that has been done on these models. This is the upper gun deck right abaft the main mast, looking at the starboard guns. The ship wheel is above me just a little to the left. Forward is the main mast, waist capstan. Through the door ahead is the fore access to lower deck and stove (theoretically). Just wanted to let the dev team know, that despite all the criticism (sometimes harsh, often warranted) I know most of us feel you have done a great job. Keep it up!
  7. Global Chat on Global Server

    I doubt this is any worse than any other MMO chat. But it seems it has been pretty bad at some point in the recent past and the Devs/forum Mods were about to remove the chat altogether. I don't know if you guys remember the thread, but it started a firestorm. I'm not for censure, but there are times when people are just too disrespectful, rude and plain obnoxious that something has to be done. There is a report system that just needs to be used. I assume the more people using it to single out a bad apple or cucumber, the more likely that person is going to be warned, then banned from chat for a certain amount of time or indefinitely if he/she is a recidivist.
  8. [Poll] Rum

    Throwing this out there: It appears that players are focused on getting mods that increase speed, stacking every little advantage that would make a ship faster than any other ship. I saw lots of posts about capping/not capping speed...etc. Which leads me to think about instead of limiting/capping speed, hull/rig repairs, rum, instead make people think hard about what they want their ship to be used for. What about a perk or a mod that reduces casualties instead of "reviving" killed sailors with Rum? Having different levels of Naval Surgeons that would reduce casualties from enemy fire.This would add strategic thinking about making choices: you want to stack up speed mods or not place so many of them and leave room for Crew protection mods/perks. People are already doing this when crafting ships, they choose woods according to what they want to do with certain ships: Speed, HP, thickness...etc So, maybe apply that same thinking towards repairs and crew.
  9. I Got Lucky Last Night but Don't Know Why

    That is good to know... ...and yes like many of us here, I got lured into the thread hoping to read about some carnal exploits from an elderly game buddy!!! I want a refund.
  10. Stop being negative!!

    @Flash Jack great post and I agree with you about the negativity not being helpful. There is a difference between constructive criticism and plain criticism, we as players in a game still in its development phase should focus on the constructive feedback. Things I like about this game: dreaming about being at the helm of an Indiaman. The work put into the ship model details is unbelievable.
  11. Server Merge Poll

    Just want to clarify something since the thread went into the inevitable discussion about eliminating the PvE server. This poll is about merging PvP servers, not PvE-PvP servers! Right??? PS: "Just on that note, remember that this poll is about what people want." I would say what 182 people want out of how many thousands play/own the game. If anyone was actually paying attention during statistics class, then one would know that "n" is very important. Larger sample sizes generally lead to increased precision when estimating parameters.
  12. Server Merge Poll

    Have the Devs actually mentioned anything about the PvE server being a financial and/or resource sink? Or is it something non PvE players are throwing out there to justify or disguise their own reasons to just get rid of a server and its community? Cause that sounds just like what Jean Ribault was saying: "But keep arguing for it if that's what makes you happy, to take away something from others when it in no way would benefit you, but would definitely hurt them". And I would add: the PvE server is in now way bothering/interfering with the ones that are the most vocal about wanting to eliminate it.
  13. Server Merge Poll

    If you are talking about merging PvP servers, I have no particular opinion about it as I am not a PvP player and do not feel it concerns me or would it be appropriate for me to meddle in other people's business, therefore I did not vote. If you are a PvP player and asking to merge PvP and PvE servers then I will share my opinion. This has been debated multiple times and if you still fail to see (or don't care about , for that matter) the disastrous results it will bring upon the PvE community then it is just a sad state of affairs! Even as a non PvP player, I can understand that the PvP servers need more players to have an increased rate of PvP action. It doesn't take much for a PvE player, ie me, to understand that and I also totally understand the efforts of the PvP community who is tirelessly trying to achieve that goal: attract and retain players for the PvP servers. However, believing that forcing PvE players to join PvP servers (or single server) will increase the PvP player base is a total fallacy bordering on the delusion! But again, I have also come to somewhat understand that thinking process: "I am a PvP player, this is a PvP game everyone must play PvP style". When you do not accept any other play style than your own, you can not see the need or understand the wishes of people with a different play style than yours. Some PvP'ers are saying Gamelabs "never promised a separate PvE server" and quoting the steam description of NA. Sure, however even though the Devs did not make that promise, they still added a completely separate PvE server. I do not recall what they said their rationale was, but the fact of the matter is that we have a PvE server that has attracted a different community than the PvP one and they want to continue to play on that server, not the PvP server.
  14. Patch 12. Caribbean invasion

    Thank you for your persistent effort in improving the game. PS: Now if you could remove the timers on the PvE server, that would be an amazing thing.
  15. Return the Pray Button

    WHAT??? The pray button is gone??? Man, the only thing that worked in the game and it's gone...GONE!!!! what a sad...
