    It is when there's no "middle". When there's no operational level because high seas loss and total safety. The bar has been pushed toward it for a long time. Small "nations" had plenty of chance to face off big empire by deploying corsairs, both IRL and in game, but hey we couldn't have that, so lobby as much as possible to protect everything. RvR is eesential, it is the end of the line but NOT at the cost of everything else. When a RvR ship worth of materials is stolen in the high seas, that is proper. It is the small nation way. Now ? No real point. Warehouses full of stuff for an eternity, all produced within total safety - how dare those pesky gits face us off with their guerrilla raids... "newcomers" need protection !!!! Noe, "we need 1 hour" because we want to protect small nations... ...right...right... RvR must be the big battle "end game" but please, not at the expense of all the other age of sail experience.

    All theorycraft. Hard number or calculation formula, how much does a port cost ?

    Deep Portbattles and Small ships

    That is incorrect. See De Ruyter expedition to Fort Royal. See how it ended and the forces arrayed. Let's use some logic please, not when it suits an agenda.

    Yes. I would expect a 80BR ship to "score control point" at a lower speed than a 365BR ship. Maybe work with that and not removal of everything ? By the way, there's a historical example for everything and there's also the historical exceptions for everything. I beg you not to nitpick it but to use it as inspiration for better mechanics instead of staying firmly rooted in what you want, versus what we all need.

    No. Attack on a port always means landing troops, either at the port itself or around it. Foot is what controls the ground.

    Pffff, the absolustist fleet had 1 xebec... p2w dastards... no wonder they lost. "where's my win button, cried the admiral..." By the way, all ships fought actions not only the big ones. Good example.

    Ok thank you. A potential always equal fight inside the PB at the expense of operational/tactical deployment in the OW ( tied with the social aspect of the game which enables the clans helping each other). Thanks for your answers.

    Okay, so the PB entry timer just shifts to 1 hour earlier although the PB only starts 1 hour later. What is the "profit" for the gameplay ?= ( I agree with Crusty, the rule is very gamey but, regarding the past tests this is the less intrusive solution yet - no alts taking spots, no blocking conquest with alt flags, etc )

    You will be given a free card, as an attacker, that works against the effort of being "social enough" ( not fro a month but for years now ) and having a nice reputation AND having that very much needed screen fleet. Or maybe i'm not getting it right. Say a small nation has 1 port and you want it. They send out a SOS and the entire server comes to their aid. But the Attackers are already inside the port. Is this how it will work if implemented ?

    For Players Old & New: A Money Management Tip

    I can help you rig the scheme and have the interest rate climb with each successful payout in case of loss at high seas.
  12. Sir Hethwill the RedDuke

    Port Battle 1 hour early entry window for attackers

    Sure. I understand the reasoning now. Next step, to what real purpose ? ( gamewise )
  13. Sir Hethwill the RedDuke

    Deep Portbattles and Small ships

    I'd do the opposite. Keep the Port BR and... ...BR of SOLs is too low so triple it for PBs ( and 100x more cost to build ) Variety FTW.

    Port Battle 1 hour early entry window for attackers

    Exactly, can enter 1 hour in advance of the PB start timer, that's what I meant. How is it different from the old "hide in a battle" in front of a PB ?

    So, extend Conquest window by 1 hour but just for attacker because OW screening can happen which buys time for the fleet in port (defender ) to sally and gain advantage of strategic PB map positions ( circles ). Am I interpreting correctly ? Thanks.
