    Let's see how 400 players look in NA world

    There are no such things as "trash woods." Only woods that are not fully appreciated for their various characteristics.

    I personally think that exceptional quality ships should not be able to be made in uncapturable ports. All those dockworkers must be exhausted! (And it forces crafters who want to be the best to actually have some skin in the game, ie - risk)
  3. Regarding ship ID: Just because Wally and his wife's second cousin saw the Acheron out of water doesn't mean that every ship could ID another from sight. The French fought, I believe it was the Constellation during the Quasi-War and thought she was a fifty gunner, just because of the rate of fire!
  4. People forget that mission spawn distance already is closer in the lower rank you are. No more rear admirals cancelling missions over and over so they can grind first rates in peace. Three a day is plenty for a casual player, who might only DO three missions in a day.

    New Musket upgrade?

    Can get a kit made by The Rifle Shoppe. $500 would get it nicely assembled by a builder. http://www.therifleshoppe.com/catalog_pages/english_arms/(789).htm

    I recently advocated for depleted uranium frizzens, but alas, they were not implemented :'( https://www.orau.org/ptp/collection/consumer products/dufrizzen.htm

    Remove the damn forts from OW PvP

    Why not take a Mortar Brig with you...?

    Please, more PERKS slots.

    I personally would be interested in a revamped perk proposal, detailing what each perk does and what it should cost. As programming resources are tied to UI, Tutorial, & Localization, it should require minimal programming changes. For myself at least, the perks seem a bit dated.

    Please, more PERKS slots.

    Everything should be perk-based, in my own opinion. Even fleets. Captains should have to make more decisions. I only wish the decisions they had to make were tougher than they currently are.

    Unequal battles

    You know where else you could go with this... False flags...

    Unequal battles

    Even in battle, names should be removed. Perhaps only ID the name after the battle is over.

    Unequal battles

    As long as player is identifiable from AI, awesome. I also agree with the above posters: Remove ship names as well. Simply ID it by class: 7th Rate, 6th Rate, 5th Rate, etc. etc. etc. If people want to know what ship it is, they'll have to actually recognize it. This would also make paints all the more important... Further, guns would have to be modeled on enemy ships on the OW, so you could actually see what armament it is carrying before engaging (instead of all ships being en fluyt on the OW).

    Unequal battles

    Need the ability to leave the game after a battle. Fighting off a bunch of fir/fir speedboats only works when you don't have a literal circle of enemies waiting for you when you exit the battle. Also, remove F11 Coordinates so people can't send GPS locations to your battle instance.
