  1. Most ramming, and out of the blue a incident after the battle of them Nile where a corvette was boned by a 74 guns and sunk fast with great loss of life, was...an accident. The 74 was badly damaged as well and had to go for repairs in port and didn't see action until Napoleon was already out of Egypt. That's how ramming should work ?
  2. Staying under the guns on the leeside has been used since NA exists. It is not new. Equation between tactics credibility must work both ways, if you resolve to pull "historical" deployment of whatever rates and compare RL tactics to game tactics, and not only when it suits or if it suits a single purpose.
  3. With the new patch 19 ideas!

    @Wraith Like good buddies meeting each other in a game in opposite sides, without even knowing, and having a laugh while they try to "shoot each other down". Anything wrong if that happens because there's no names ? What's different ? Can't measure chances before engaging ? Who cares ! Newcomers have no godamn idea - bless them - who the players are. And honestly they have the best slice of the cake. We are sadly educated in a ton of forum trash - yes, pun intended given the juvenile trolling - of whom we do or not want to play with. Newcomers, average players are, gladly immune to that. But onwards to the comfort talk you pull with ... names showing or not... Just to put it in perspective, EVE with its massive LOSS potential or WW2OL with its factual bragging rights of winning wars, and LOSS of wars, not just word in a forum. No look to NA, a spectuacular never stopping combat game in the age of sail. Everyone gets a ship anywhere fast to go to combat. To engage in naval action without delays. That's all that matters. That's how comfortable we have it. And you still claim a specific name in the OW makes or breaks it ? By neptune's beard sir, I embrace this new age of comfort. We never had it better. Outposts. Production buildings. Teleports. Ships in a bottle. Admiralty handouts. No need to produce anything anymore. No need to engage enemy nations in earnest. No loss involved, truly. Just pure fun in the open world of naval action. oh my oh my... give me the names

    Again you ignore the only MMO posted ( funny that it plays with no instances - full 1:1 timescale ) that hides the names/ranks except when at engagement range. Oh... oh.... NA does show the names and ranks at engagement range ... wat da... *ouch* Let's get over it and move forward.
  5. No Audio

    On Synapse you select the mode you want.

    *cough cough* WW2 Online ? Oh wait sorry... that's not a mmo... or is it ?...Is a 24/7/365 wasteland arma3 server a 254 slot mmo ? is a dynamic war il2 server not a mmo ? bloody hell, it has more depth in its simulator and support wargame with supply lines and pilot perma deaths than some of you mmo guys ever wanted for this, so let's cut the sleeves and be honest at least once or twice. The ship names in the OW... It is a test. And not everyone likes this or that change. Do not confuse liking unconditionally with supporting further testing. Want no names, want names, sure, whatever. As long as more people fight and not always the same guys over and over and over again Is the change goood in that respect to bring the average fellows out to fight ? Rests to be seen and statistics are usually more factual than your street word.

    Friendly - attack button is disabled. Enemy - Attack button is enabled. That's how the mechanics are. They are blind to human considerations.
  9. With the new patch 19 ideas!

    We are discussing ideas, not people. Quoting a player - we are here to fight heroically. Get out there, fight.
  10. With the new patch 19 ideas!

    We all had our time to make it work - social AND war. Given the "less than desirable" results now we focus on WAR. Enough social interaction with cannons roaring.
  11. The Case Against Repair Items

    Less mmo gamey, more credible sim realistic outcome. +1

  13. Increase the daily number of tows to pvp zones

    Of course. Totally supportive of that as always. Still it is on the player to know that when SAIL button is pressed it opens the pvp on the pvp server no matter what their aspirations are. And here the OW expectations did crash like waves unto rocks. aka. PvP only when I want, please. ( how many times we heard this one way or the other... ) But we are over that now. Everyone PvP's now with superb, read again, SUPERB, rewards. No excuses. No tears.
