I know this will probably be dismissed due to lack of video or other substantiating information, but I would urge the Devs to look into any ways that people may be able to manipulate the game to their advantage. I will not mention names as I do not have evidence but needless to say I have heard similar reports and warnings about the same person, which is why I cannot put this down to a one off game glitch or timing mismatch. After getting the kills twice on a particular raider in the green zone around KPR yesterday I had information that the person had been seen heading that way again, so a few of us gathered to intercept him. He was duly sighted and we gave chase, I was in a fast ship that I knew could match his speed and the others in the group were in heavier ships. He was still within the green zone when I reached the edge of the tag circle but the Attack button still remained greyed out, I was half way between the edge of the outer circle and target and the attack was still not available and then started flashing on and off rapidly as if I was just in range. Immediately the attack button was able to be clicked I initiated the tag and the target also initiated a counter tag. This so far could be put down to a lag issue apart from the fact that many have reported the same issue with the same player, but the other thing that happened that makes it even more suspicious is that the tag counter ran out literally the second we left the green zone. Now that may be a coincidence but its a very strange one considering the circumstances and the difficulty in timing such an operation. Had the tag happened inside the zone then the rest of the team could have joined positionally to trap the person rather than miles away and chasing. All I ask is that you look at possible ways that this could be achieved and not just dismiss it outright due to lack of evidence as a video would only show exactly what I have described here and provide no other detail.
Joined a battle at Shroud Cay, the player 'Lardwick' boarded a Swedish Cerberus 'swartzenberger'. Combat News: 11:20 - 20th November 2017 The Cerb was afk and had no cannons. Lardwick sailed over and boarded it. He got angry when I joined the battle. That's about suspicious and 'caught red-handed' as you can get for pvp mark farming. I imagine you will be able to see if there is a trading/combat history between the 2 players, even if there isn't I still say he's a cheat, any other explanation is too far fetched imo I have recorded and saved battle, if you need it so see it let me know (and instructions on how to post it). IMO something needs to be done about pvp farming, its obviously rampant and makes you question everything you see in combat news which is a shame. Cheers
As the Title Says. Seriously. Could we Cut back on the NPCs Cheating ??? I mean sure they are NPCs. So them having some Statistic Buffs. No Problem. They are NPCs so they need to make up for being predictable. Them being able to partially sail against the Wind with Full Sails. Ok fine. They need it cause they tend to be bad with Wind Management and always strand themselves straight into the Wind.... Even their Ability to just Ignore Heeling is fine. But Hell. EVERY SINGLE MISSION I DO. The First thing they do is Set me on Fire on a Broadside into my nearly Undamaged Armor. Really every Single Time. Sometimes 3-4 times in a Single Battle. I mean do they have some sort of Secret Arsonist Skill that gives an 50% chance to light an Enemy on Fire when you hit a Broadside or something ???? in General their Ability to land Criticals is insane. I often lose 20% of my Cannons before my Armor is Half Depleted. Their Accuracy is really absurd as well. Their Ability to just Shoot around Corners like they got Turrets Mounted is hilarious. They can be standing turned away from me and despite me having 2 Ship lengths till I could possibly aim at them. They easily Shoot at me with their Guns. Its like they can Shoot in something like an 150 Degree Angle around their Broadside lol Needless to say they can Shoot incredible accurately so in Choppy Sea at 1000 Yards away they Miss maybe 2 out of 20 Shots into your Rear lol I mean its fine they are Strong. But seriously. At least dont give them Magic Abilities like Setting People on Fire with an 100% Chance. Or Firing with near 100% Accuracy on 100 Miles away.
I am sure this is not allowed and maybe covered beforehand, I fould players attcking one another and spawning in reinforcments to capture the third rate bellona 74 copies of the "attackers" this was a clan fighting another clan member and was an obvious case of missuse and not just a joke attack. It is in line with damage farming almost, mean they dont have to leave to find NPCs or travel to a mission thus saving a lot of time but is clear abuse of mechanics. Picture shows both members of "BW" The thrid rate tagged the trinc and then they where trying to push the AI third rate into the wind when I joined, they told me to leave after refusing they left.
