  1. Agreed, win ratio data seems useless with current RvR, port trading, empty PBs, multiflips and player online.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    They have probably 15-20 players total in nation active on daily basis and craft nice ships around Portobelo I'm using Polish Santi & Connie, great quality ships.

    Danes and Prussians is like 5-10% of server playerbase 🤣 Do you seriously count each nation as equal size/power? Maybe consider that you're also at war with Poland

    Verdict was we had Conquest Marks removed from the game

    This is #FakeNews You can undock in warships, but you can't dock. Buying crew is allowed. Buy crew and undock, sail home.

    Epic Event attempts since change in chain

    I remember Epic Event where I looted 6-7 chests and my ship was overloaded with chests 🤣

    Let's be honest, ports will be traded exactly the same way like we had with Conquest Marks. Everyone open your eyes, @admin could you elaborate how to prevent "port trading" to win Conquest Operation rewards?

    Wasn't there, but I guess I will post this: Salina PB, heavily outnumbered + 6 Xebecs vs 11 Xebecs advantage. When Prussians joined, attackers already had 3 circles under control and hundreds of points. Prussian fleet was delayed by Lorimers multiflip. #multiflips #NoDLCShipsInPBs #ContentDestroyers

    My solution is supposed to balance the current "meta reinforcement ships". My Endymion laughs when I see Cerb reinforcement and my Xebec will laugh to Snow reinforcement. Make them mirrors to make it logical and remove "meta" ships thing from reinforcements as it makes no sense promoting certain ships because of the reinforcement mechanics. When I tag someone in Hercules, the enemy should receive reinforcement, Hercules. Same goes for Xebecs and all other ships.

    Xebec is going for sinking, tested that on Ocean, 3rd rates and smaller ships. It has 32pd carronades with very high DPS, the boarding is just addition, one more way to finish the battle. The more options, the more opportunities and the more universal your ship is, the better. About killing noobs, as I mentioned it's their own player-mistakes and inexperience. Try fighting medium skill captains in reinforcements and see how they make a good use of reinforcements.

    It's still funny when you tag someone in a large 5th rate and it spawns Cerberus @admin should make it so reinforcements are exact mirror ships or attackers, same should happen in hostility, as currently, we have a stupid % fluctuation ending up with 99,9% hostility etc. Disclaimer: this opinion comes from a PvP hardcore super-geared ganker that wants easy seal clubbing newbies in the zone

    Any ship can be throw-away, you still gotta pay for guns and some mods. Do you use Hercs to tag people in the safe zone? What's your experience with fighting reinforcements? I'm asking out of curiosity because I fought tiers 3-4-5-6 with new changes and they have high HP, high penetration and high damage. Only player errors make it easy to kill them, for example when they run away from reinforcements etc. If you tag players on Xebec or Prince, you will get only some 6th rate reinforcement, the main difference between Herc. I'm not saying it's bad, as I know it's good, but I wouldn't place it in the top 3 in effectiveness. @Vile Executioner and @GreasyMnky use Hercs a lot, maybe they can share their opinions.

    I call bs about this, especially that Herc is the smallest 5th rate and reinforcements can spawn Indefs/Trics or other big 5th rates that eat Herc alive. On top of that Herc has weaker 4-5 boarding mods now and less crew (no light ship hammocks + no 6-7 hammocks). Current safe zone hunter no.1 is Xebec, then I would consider Prince/Surprise or any speedy 5th rate. Herc is still vid, but not as great as it used to be.

    Please, make sure we have an option to "return" once going through server selection and character selection. At the moment the only option is to "Exit" the game. Option "Exit to Menu" would be appreciated.

    so... how do we prevent port trading between nations to achieve the goal? 🤔 I would rather take a look at this: (solving many neutral ports issues, maintenance flaws, improving diplomacy and more)

    We are too mediocre and we don't have a full 25-men fleet mono-clan

    Essex vs Hercules, pirate came at me, stopped, I stopped and we engaged. After 15 mins he started to run away. There was no point for me chasing him in Essex, without any chasers or even decent speed: Part 2 Was a 1h long fight, very good on both sides. Yet again what killed Essex was lack of chasers + for some reason angling on Essex is almost impossible, feels like everything penetrates it. Call it a draw I guess: Good sides - Essex finally sails better upwind and can tack the wind Bad sides - angling / thickness feels not present at all, no chasers, big heel.
