    Wipe on release, 3-4 months?

    Please consider not deleting already learned skillbooks. I am currently working on collecting all books so I can finally enjoy the game without having to worry about books I need. Already learned skillbooks don't influence the economy ( other than new players being able to have a chance to get them within reasonable amount of time because the hardcore veterans don't snatch them all... ) so it shouldn't be a problem. I think this would be more than fair to your loyal playerbase. That being said I am looking forward to the wipe as long as it is only all economy related stuff. A fresh start is not only good for economy but a lot of fun aswell but please don't take our hard earned books ❤️ .... I am not certain I can be bothered to go through the book grind again only for the sake of having to do it again, while also pushing new players out of the market. Thank you for taking my humble opinion into account.

    Should the admiralty allow SOL to roam freely?

    You can't imagine how glad I am to read this. I always thought SOLs should be much stronger and especially expensive compared to frigates... In an ideal game ( for me ) the standard PvP ships are schooners and small frigates.

    Pirates should be Pirates!

    This does not make much sense for realism and gameplay. I'd rather see something like this instead.

    DLC ships = Multi Dura ships

    Here I am still wondering why we are still discussing this topic when one dura made the game so much better in terms of realism and gameplay. Multi dura is something I wold expect from a temporary test server and not in the actual polished game.
  5. Patience is a virtue... but sadly not mine. Really would appreciate some ETA aswell. I used all my crafting components weeks ago and was planning on putting crafting on hold until the eco patch would come live but I had to start it again due to too many crafting hours going to waste for nothing. I am really excited for steamlined crafting / less meaningless clicks but I would like to have it sooner rather than later - the rest can wait.

    Safe Zones - A better way

    People claiming PvP players are too lazy to find their targets outside of capitals and only go there to sealclub are actually simply too lazy to do their PvE outside of capitals. There are so many quiet spots on the map where you can do PvE in peace... new players should have some safe area and once they become more experienced they can find out where the map is busy and where it is quiet. Fixing safe zones is pretty simple: 1. 50% gold / xp in safezones and no rare books only the very basic ones in safe zone PvE. 2. No bonus trims or slots for ships built in the zones instead of only lower chance ( including capturable ports that somehow are in the safezones @admin maybe this should be fixed either way... swedes have it for example ). Ships built inside safe zones should always be 3/5 without bonus. 3. Give new players a tiny starting tutorial map in some lake or on the west coast at some point in the future, where no advanced / veteran players can join and no PvP marks are issued ( if PvP should be allowed at all on the tutorial map ). There would be much less sealclubbing and players would have a place to fall back to in the safezones but the goal would always be to move out of the zones and increase profit / get better loot and ships. I still can not fathom why people should have no disadvantage in staying within their magically protected realm that is meant to protect new players.

    Le Requin handling

    I am looking for a visualization of perfect or nearly perfect handling of the new Xebec. Sometimes the movement of the ship feels unnatural and I want to be sure it isn't because of my inability to manual sail it 100% correctly. I am also open and thankful for any other tips and advice regarding the ship. Thank you captains o7

    La Requin nerf needed

    So let me get this straight... you want people to pay 10 bucks so they can sail free ships PvP marks? I can see the restriction on pirate refit as soon as sail force multipliers are nerfed for all ships and the lower carronade calibre too... maybe even remove it from PBs but nerfing speed and crew on a pirate ship that people have to pay real cash for? Draw the line, my dude... Also 5-6 rates are basically free... they cost so little to build that you can spam them for 4-5 slots and bonus trims easily while the DLC ships are free but restricted to 24h timers. So you will see much more normal ships with 5/5+trim than DLC ships naturally.

    Boarding Indiaman

    Yeah, I should have actually just sank him with gun fire in the first place instead of fucking about with boarding but thought rageboarding would be faster... lesson learned, I guess.

    Boarding Indiaman

    Actually I do understand... hence why I mentioned it in my OP? I just think it is a bit extreme since he doesn't even have to use defend but only brace and I actually had a boarding mod unlike him... That's sadly what it is... adding modifiers doesn't make it a different principle. I hope they will rework the 1994 2D boarding mini game with a mechanic that can hold up with the quality of the other combat mechanics of NA sooner rather than later...

    Boarding Indiaman

    My muskets and grenades had very little effect aswell actually... tried both. Also isn't attack supposed to beat brace? Normally that is what it does for me... hence I was wondering about this one. From official post explaining the boarding commands: " Brace: This command is the default used at the start of boarding and when a previously selected command is no longer available. With “Brace” your crew heads for cover to reduce casualties from ranged attacks and some men fire back. “Brace” is ideal to protect your crew against incoming fire and increase your preparation for other commands. · Effective vs “Musket Volley”, “Fire Deck Guns”, (Reduces casualties) · Minor effect vs “Fire Grenades” · Very Vulnerable vs “Attack/Counter-Attack” · Very Little effect vs “Defend” "
  13. So I found this Indiaman afk in the middle of nowhere, boarded him and his brace basically beat every one of my moves. He had no marines and apparently no permanent mods, while I had "Nassau Boarders". I assume it was mainly his advantage in deck hight? The guy remained afk and I eventually had to sink him with cannon fire... no story short of embarassment. Once I unlock my slots, I will try Book of 5 Rings and see if the ladder bonus can fix it. Still seems a bit odd... Did this guy simply have boarding books stacked that reduced his crew casualties and boosted his brace but without marines for some reason?
  14. I like this suggestion. Please make it so, @admin. Even if the nations are hardcore, new players should start in the heart of their nation and not be sealclubbed out of the game at shroudcay. Voting for capitals seems a nice idea. I would also prefer all nations except GB, US, France and Spain be hardcore but that is another topic.

    La Requin nerf needed

    This and pirate refit adjusted / nerfed should be looked at first. If this isn't enough go further. Adjust carefully.
