  1. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Nevermind if I said anything against a good historicity discussion πŸ™„πŸ˜‰: will you please take a look at what the crew of the historical Prince de NeufchΓ’tel did to the crew of the HMS Endymion.. Depends. I try to fight back. Though I admit, I resorted to surrendering as of lately if there's really no chance. Still, sometimes it took me over an hour to prepare my voyage, my ship, etc. That's my playtime too. If you want a rule, make it like this. I would find it sad though and rather have an open world with few regulations, seconding: Why not just give them the fight instead?

    Oh so true. That crushing feeling in a 6th rate and you have a large ship wiping all your men and cannons of your deck with one broadside. πŸ™‚

    Sure, I love history. Probably lots of us are here exactly because of it. But you could always make it more realistic and more historic which will only lead you to reenact history instead of playing a game with it's what-if premise.

    No, it wasn't you, it was redi who has been sidelining this thread. It isn't really my intention to argue for griefing, but against any regulations that would separate the realm of the 7-6th from the 5th rates and up. Basically you're saying that your playtime is more worth than anybody's else and that gives me the itch. I have been ganked so often, especially as a newbie, still I don't raise a campaign against it or any of the ship types involved.

    btw I just love it, well done. Shit ships are the Hip shit. πŸ˜‰
  6. Eliminate small ship griefing

    The historicity discussion is such an awful dead-end: We are playing in a Carribean which is getting populated by Prussians, dominated by Swedes and Danes, sailed by US great lake ships and patrolled by Russian Mercuries. Obviously we have entered some sort of alternate universe of the Age Of Sail. And we entered a new sort of reality within the boundaries of Naval Action the game. It's a sandbox game and people are starting to figure out its possibilities. So what?
  7. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Sounds valid to me and gives the defender a chance for being reinforced. Simple but effective mechanic. πŸ‘πŸ½
  8. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Since Snows are officially the strongest ship in NA as of now, it would be a worthy price ... πŸ˜‰πŸ˜
  9. Eliminate small ship griefing

    I am totally with you - if you make it the other way round as well. The BR of the attacking force shouldn't be more than 180% of the defender (or something around that).
  10. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Even better!
  11. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Says the guy who is one of the top contributors to this no-facts-no-logic-forum... Anyways, I propose a contest: anyone who could post a video of a Prince taking a 1st rate gets a price? I really want to see anyone pulling that off! πŸ˜€
  12. Eliminate small ship griefing

    While we're at it, let's remove ganking as well, please. Because I really don't know why I should waste MY precious gaming time with my Traders Brig being ganked by 5 P-Friggates.
  13. Poll on limited use of repairs in battles

    Limit it to 1 hull and 1 sails only. Consider having to spend hull repairs on leaks as well (may remain automated). Consider a philosophy that repairs are mainly for OW, not for instance. Maybe it promotes a playstyle in which long range cannon battles become more common again, opposed to the aggressive boarding. I also want to see a lot more sunken ships in PBs.
  14. Eliminate small ship griefing

    Haha, now 6th rates are considered to be OP? Please don't be ridiculous.
  15. Eliminate small ship griefing

    I disagree. It would be great if more people were to sail 6th (hell, even 7th). If all those Wasas and P-Frigates in OW start to complain, it only shows that people finally start figuring out how to use these smaller ships properly. That's a good thing! If at all, make 6th rates more worthwhile. The more variety in OW, the better.
