    Hercules, the destroyer of balance between shallow ships.

    Moscalb used a few hercs to brawl at KPR. He sank a lot of frigs with them, just got ganked eventually.

    Hercules, the destroyer of balance between shallow ships.

    Every shallow water battle that involves one Hercules is decided from the start. Make shallow water battles what they were before: Fun! Exclude hercules from the shallows completely! It was intended as comparable to the Cerberus. The Ceberus is a deep water ship!

    [PvP EU] Spanish clan political situation

    Passive game play
  4. The real problem is, that content creater aka the guys that come to your capital are always the stupid ones that loose stuff because of getting ganked. This game currently punishes you for trying to get pvp because nowhere else you will find a player. Players still need reasons to leave the zone!

    Untouchable ship structure

    The bug happened in at least 2 PBs so far, so its definitely in NA OW too.

    Game Reviews on Steam

    For a game that is nearly 2 and a half years in active early access phase the game simply hasn't developed enough. In the most positive future, we will see the same effects that does DAYZ standalone see currently. After many years and millions of sold copies its finaly in a stage of 'its playable', but the playernumbers are super low compared to the millions of sold copies. Now only NA suffers even more, because we dont have many servers with each a small pop you might fill up fully with what you have, no, we have ONE single pvp server that is never gonna fill up and the lack of players brings the biggest chunk of problems this game currently suffers.

    Speculations - big patch this week?

    My bet: Still no UI.

    Maintenance of heavily specialised equipped vessels

    The biggest drawback of raising the repair costs is the amount of reps you have to take with you on a bigger campaign. While small privateers like Z4YS never really go out in bigger ships than a 5th rate, you see the heavy drawbacks of the current repairsystem with the amount of revengefleets when you go out with a group. The more you take with you, the slower you get, the more damage you have to tank, the more you have to repair. Especially with the new gamemechanic where repairs in sunken ships simply disappear and the amount of boarding in fleet battles pretty much is nonexistant because of determined defender you cant really collect more repairs inside a battle. This suggestion is again a onesided view on a subject to make the life of small privateers easier to sink 'heavily and specialised equipped ships'.

    Facts and Truth of Spain.

    Would the GA clan just play as much pvp in OW as its member does here in the forums....

    RvR Diplomacy

    That is happening anyways. A clan-based game would be much more fluid than the old east and west blocks we had.

    Reinforcement fleets: feedback

    Imho the only protection the capital zones give is not reinforcement fleets but the forever open battles. Calling reinforcements is actually quite stupid as they block slots for your overkill of coastguard that will come to rescue you for the 0 to 1 pvp marks they get for killing the hunters. Rather than having AI reinforcements we could think about an emergency distress call in nation chat via 'Clerk' with the exact position for the battle like 'British player got attacked 2k south of KPR. Attacker has 225 BR'. As this would give all the necessary intel the coastguard needs to come to help new players. To the current reinforcement fleets... They break immersion, are stupid as hell, can't repair and for hunters easy to immobilize (chain, demasting).

    RVR options

    This would still suck for every nation that has no 24/7 PB fleet ready - every nation except France. France would gain huge advantages of this.
