    DLC impact on the economy

    Fights and bragging rights, would people be more willing to fight if they had less to lose?

    Wind changes in North Inlet port battle

    Having the wind favour one party throughout the encounter is fine, but it would be more interesting for both sides to have a moment of their own advantage I guess. Defenders can't get into some imaginary circles because of the wind blowing in their faces throughout the encounter.

    Wind changes in North Inlet port battle

    You could potentially do that if you knew what the seed number is, and it's most likely the current time. Unless a hardware RNG device is used then it becomes nearly impossible. And dudes, take your trash out of my post, huh? This thing here, linked by Banished, actually explains this in great detail: http://www.pcg-random.org/predictability.html

    Thank you, as a suggestion though: if one side gets such bad luck, code it so that they do get a break eventually. Encounters are better if both sides get a shot at a good brawl.

    And you gave us a reason to play the game again, so thanks for bringing us some long awaited competition.

    DLC impact on the economy

    And I have a revolutionary response to these 'economy' posts - trash the whole thing, it turns the game into a mindless grind, drains dev resources and turns people away. Without the economy the problem of alts is solved, dev resources can be used to improve other, more important areas of the game. How about that?

    Trolling is not necessary. If the RNG has an issue it needs to be corrected, if there is no issue then, well, there is no issue.

    That's not a simple question, I play the game rather than gather statistical data on wind changes and not many battles last that long.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    That is one seriously painful screenshot.

    Sure, anything can happen, it's just very unlikely eh? To the point where suspicions arise. Or how about you know 'software whitening' to deal with the bias produced by clock time based psuedo RNG? @HethwillPlease move to the support section, thank you!

    Hugging exploit

    The secret is out anyway, hugging > your first rate. There was a video of 2 basic cutters hugging a pavel and actually managing to sink it. It might have taken them an hour but they did it, and sure there are steps you can take to try and avoid it but the whole thing is just hilarious.

    Ohh, well I missed it, thanks, I'll take my math there.

    Or very lucky, it depends on which side you're on.

    Wind changes in North Inlet port battle

    6 events of wind change with 2 possible outcomes (good/bad for the defender) - .5 * .5 * .5 *.5 *.5 * .5 = 1/64 which translates to 1.5625 percent probability of having bad wind 6 times in a row. And yet, with such low probability that's exactly what happened. Is your RNG generator broken in the game? I would never accuse the GL staff of taking sides in port battles and manipulating wind directions so the only logical explanation is your RNG @admin is broken. Can you please fix it? Thanks!
