    Constitution Classic

    So what is the deal with the Constitution classic? Do we have to unlock all slots again or will the model simply replace the old one and we keep the current ships and builds? Will normal Constitutions be wiped once the new is added instead? It is a bit confusing to be honest. @admin

    Flags Flags Flags

    I think this one is a given, except for maybe pirates who could be allowed to fly any flag. Imagining a battle between GB and France, where the brits fly the french flags and the french fly british flags sounds nothing but cringy. Giving the level of historical accuracy and love for detail of the game, I hope the devs think the same.

    Constitution Classic

    Is it possible to only rename the old one into "USS President" or some other sister ship of the Constitution, maybe even "Acheron" so we have HMS Surprise's arch enemy? Also is there any ETA on when the Constitution classic will be available ( more than once ) or fully implemented? I really want to unlock the slots in PvP but having only one ship that I can't afford to lose doesn't help me very much in PvP...

    Flags Flags Flags

    Definitely the blue in my opinion. It works much more harmonic with the many bright colours of the flags on the ship. Also I found this regarding use of colour in marketing: "Colour is powerful because it can change our mood – the mood of potential customers. If a website improves our state of mind, our relationship with a brand will deepen and the probability of a return will increase. Advertisers and designers are well aware of that. We are not guided entirely by logic when making purchases. We tend to be driven by less identifiable factors such as emotions. ... Violet, blue, turquoise, green, navy give a feeling of stability and quality. These shades are often placed as accompanying colours. Although they don’t attract attention they emphasise the content."

    Reduce the crew numbers on the indiaman

    I want this more than anything and dare to say, that the only people who are against this simply want free kills whenever they find some lone trader.
  6. I have been loving the visuals of this unique ship ever since they added it. The lavish decoration, colours and hull shape are simply excellent but in terms of performance it is rather lacking and maybe rightfully so, considering it is one of the oldest ships in the game. Is there any scenario were I would use this ship over others with some combination of woods and mods, any use for it at all or is it simply rubbish for PvP? @admin Will the Hamburg be buffed / rebalanced in the ship rebalance update?

    Wapen von Hamburg build / use in PvP

    Seems to be the general consensus regarding the wapen to be honest... I couldn't find a single recording or screenshot of any PB or OW Battle, where one of the top players used the wapen to great effect... or rather used it at all. I also asked a few players I consider well above my skill tier and they all agree that it is rubbish. Your input was interesting, thank you.

    Wapen von Hamburg build / use in PvP

    You mean to pull it out of the docks for a few seconds once in a blue moon and have a good wank about it? I mean it's not really variety when nobody wants to sail it, because it is useless.... except for maybe on the PvE server. I too would welcome more variety but only when every ship has its use or is competitive to some degree. I have never seen a really good PvP captain sail a Wapen for a serious battle, no matter RvR or OW PvP and quite frankly that's a shame... we just have too many obsolete or underperforming ships in game, that leave you with the illusion of variety when only a fraction is really viable.

    Just look at dat thicc rear. Be honest with yourself, these curves don't lie...

    Wapen von Hamburg build / use in PvP

    Yeah, this is the only thing it has going for it sadly ( as far as I can tell ) and I am not sure it is enough to justify having it in the game... it has decent DPS too but too many low calibre guns that are hard to get on target up close and skilled players will know about the DPS potential and deny you the benefit of it anyways.
  12. So I have been trying to get this mate of mine into the game for a while now but he only wants to play mortar brig, which has fairly limited use in game. He doesn't seem too confident in his sailing skills and probably got wasted one time too many by some mark farming veteran. I am looking for a way to get him motivated to improve his skills and enjoy himself. And since this seems like a interesting topic for NA, I'd like to ask for your suggestions to get a new player hooked. Probably most important, what ships are the best for new players to get into PvP? Probably he should start by hunting traders? Truth be told, I don't think dragging the good lad in his mortar brig with me is too effective...

    Getting a new player into the game

    To be perfectly honest maybe they are overperforming but more than anything it is hype. Being so readily available makes the DLC ships ever present and people die a lot to them and thus think they are overpowered... Requin was nerfed already along with crew bonuses that made her really broken and the hercules is a very potent ship indeed but don't forget it has only 200 crew. And last but not least, no matter how much you buff, nerf and rebalance, there will always be "meta ships" and this is becomes even more true, the more ships we get and the harder it will be to balance them. I would prefer the DLC ships to not be OP but very potent and a valid choice, giving every pleb out there a chance to come back again and again as long as he is willing to fight, with a ship that is worth fighting in. Also the price of the DLC ships is very reasonable and every ship sold helps funding the game we all love. Admin said all ships will be rebalanced anyways so I am not sure how strong the DLC ships will be in the future. Personally I hope they stay among the strongest ships in their tier.

    Getting a new player into the game

    He actually purchased the Hercules DLC now and enjoys it a great deal, even scored 2 kills so far. Once he realised the majority of players are of low skill like him, he is finally roaming the seas, looking for prey... @admin This goes to show how valuable the DLC ships are not only for funding the game but also for new / casual players. My mate now plays PvP and plans on doing so regularly, because he has no fear of losing his ship - my mate said what stopped him from playing the most was his hate of crafting and fear of losing his ship. The daily redeem possibility of the DLC gave us one more PvP player providing content for others in return.

    Getting a new player into the game

    No need to be sorry. You have some very subjective opinion and I don't share it. I think I made it more than clear that he showed very limited interest in the game due to getting farmed by experienced players. And so I was looking for advice to get him motivated to give the game another shot. In this regard your idle talk is nothing but useless rubbish...

    Getting a new player into the game

    Really wish it was that simple but looking through the steam reviews he sadly is within the majority and without players like him NA will never be more than it is now. I would probably never have gotten into NA and learned to love it, if I would not have had a lot of free time and played with the right people when I started playing the game. We will need a lot more guidance and help for new and casual players, if we wish for NA to ever become a real mmo. The current "let the noob eat shit until he is good and if he doesn't then the game isn't for him anyways" attitude is what left us with the whopping 300 players server pop. More than anything it is the fault of the community that the game has so few active players.

    Kind of amusing coming to think of it... some 500 years ago people from one corner of the world butchered some of another like animals, taking their land and dignity as if it was their divine right thinking of their victims as nothing but savages and lesser humans. Then for example some 70 years ago it happened again and even tho the circumstances were different, the mindset was exactly the same but people remember and think of it differently. The winners write the history books after all, I guess.

    FLAG OF CLAN.

    I would much rather have a very large collection of historically accurate flags with clans being able to choose one as their own, that their ports could fly aswell on some additional flag pole. I am not sure how to feel about actual custom flags.

    Will you include some ocean fauna in this game?

    I know it is, that is why it came to my mind but that doesn't make it any less cheesy in my opinion, unless it happens very very rarely.

    Will you include some ocean fauna in this game?

    I mean we do have the seagulls but something like dolphins escorting your ship would be cheesy AF... maybe some whale jumping out of the water in the distance very rarely would be nice.

    Yeah, this is what I recommended to him aswell but at this point he doesn't want to invest more and I understand it. I wish I could give him my DLC ships since I barely use them...

    Getting a new player into the game

    He did the tutorial, except for the final mission, which he can not handle and as far as I understood he thus thinks PvP is even harder and not even worth trying. Basically he envisions every other player to be Ram Dinark. I want to recommend a ship to him that he can stick with, get used to and unlock the slots for but I am not quite sure which ship would be the best for a new player to start PvP with. I think he has 240 crew at his disposal currently so the ship should not be far beyond that limit ( I am not certain how much xp he needs for the next rank ). So we are looking at some 6th or 5th rate I suppose. Maybe I should tell him to wait for the rebalance of ships that was vaguely announced?

    I told him so but he'd rather not play at all than hit a single bot mission...

    This is awesome. Excellent idea and execution.
