  1. I'm only at the larger frigates but noticing that the timer often runs out with ships still alive. Maybe this is even worse with the bigger ships? Anyway, if there still are ships left when the timer runs out what should decide win, loss or draw (which is simply loss for both sides)? Here's a pic as a talking point: I tried to get to cap but the bot was following me, I tried to speed up his demise by boarding but one broadside had me sinking. So these two bots were shooting at eachother beyond effective range and only within the last three minutes did they close the distance and did actual damage. BR each side is equal at the moment the timer ran out. Health remaining is in our team's favor, this could be used to decide win/loss but it isn't the best candidate. Our team has the most kills, also not a good deciding factor. Our team has more points (lower right corner), could that be used to make a draw (loss/loss) into a win or loss? We could make an undecided outcome (draw or loss/loss) into half a win for both teams in terms of xp payout. I've had a match timer run out with a clear BR weight in favor of my team and the outcome was still "loss". @M G can confirm. (I F11'd it) Some undecided matches are ok, but by design they should be rather rare; think in the range 1-5%. One team is dissappointed in a win/lose situation but both teams are frustrated in a draw or lose/lose situation. We should limit frustration as much as possible. How should we decide win/lose? BR weight? points?... other ideas? Discuss...
  2. I've seen differing opinions on whose navy was the strongest, and while the general consensus is Great Britain at the top, who comes after is usually hotly debated. I'm opening up a debate (not a flaming war for all you folks that lack restraint), as to who YOU think the 10 strongest navies were during Naval Action's timeline. Rules for posting your list are as follows: 1. Expand on your views as to why you chose the particular order you've listed. Don't just say "Well Subject A lost to Subject B, so Subject B is the best." 2. Provide at least one or two sources to supplement your position. Wikipedia is acceptable so long as supplementing sources are provided for the excerpts you pull from that site. 3. Feel free to debate with fellow naval enthusiasts over your differences of opinion, but please do not flame, and choose your words carefully. We're all mature adults here (I hope). I'll be requesting a moderator to remove posts if you guys can't follow the rules.
  3. Hello fellow captains I have been wanting to write this Topic for a while now but with the patch on the 26th I just had to ask about the future of Naval Action and the changes wich open up a whole new range of Possibilities for the game. since the recent change by the devs to go hard-core with the present NA new Possibilities are created for suggestions and content wich was first discarded as being to radical or hard. As first i would like to ask the devs to reconsider the orginal idea about regional conquest because since NA will be hard-core we should also need a hard-core conquest system, a more in-depth and longer lasting Regional conquest system would be needed. take a look at the link below about the original Idea of Regional conquest. A quick explanation about the Regional conquest system : - Smaller Regions with 3 ports Max. this would decrease the rapid expansion of nations and allow for a more controlled Front line/Border. - All ports in a region should be able to be attacked or raided. this is more realistic and fits in the picture of a hard-core game, PVP and RVR would also benefit from this for the sole reason that there are just more possibilities for PVP and RVR + all ports in the region are now important to the regions defense and not just one port (Regional Capital). - Capture of any ports can only be started after winning a Sea battle for supremacy over the regional water. this battle would be open to all ships and play out as a normal sea battle, also PVP now has a role in RVR and would make more people participate in RVR. this battle would most likely not be full most of the time and could be won by the attackers fairly easily due to the enemy not knowing that they where going to be attacked( dont worry! the defender still has plenty of time and opportunity to counter attack) - Capture of a regional capital can only be started after capturing the other ports in the region. this would make the attack on a enemy region more into a campaign then instead of just one battle resulting in longer regional attacks and better coordination of fleets due to the more time availible to both attackers and defenders. my second suggestion for the devs to reconsider would be about Port Battle compositions. long story made short a certain amount of ships from every Rate are allowed into Port battles ,see the link below. explaination of this idea : ( -Note- all amounts could ofcourse be changed ) i would propose for Deep water and Regional capital port battles : - 1 or 2 1st Rates ships - 2 or 3 2nd Rates ships - 3 or 4 3rd Rates ships - 4 or 5 4th Rates ships - 5 or 6 5th Rates ships 15 to 20 higher Rate ships can be used(1st Rates to 5th Rates) - no regulations on 6th Rates ships and lower for Shallow water port battles the same but starting with 6th Rates : - 10 to 15 6th Rates ships - 10 or 15 7th Rates ships a system like this (not this exact system) would make sure that 1st to 3rd rate ships wil become less important. i would also suggest changing the big fleets on the OW so that they would have less 1st to 3rd rates and more 4th to 6th rates. now there is ofcourse the argument that this system would only work for lobby based battles and that it is too hard to maintain, it requires some more thinking yes but i dont think that a system like this would be to much to handle and in the end the community will figure it out like they have always done. these where just two suggestions i would realy like to see realised but by writing this Topic i hope the devs will now change there stance on suggestions that have been discarded, i am sure there are many more old suggestions that could fit this situation and i hope the devs will reconsider them. thank you for reading. Kind Regarts : Rickard PS : if you have some other old suggestions that the devs should look at please post them in a reply.
  4. I have liked this game from the start very much, when the armies you had to handle were small. However it got worse and worse with every add on and I stopped playing it eventually. Here are some reasons why I start it only rarely now: - enemy has always better equipment - I noticed that it does not matter if I play union or confederate guys - while not observed your units behave like morons, not like veterans - your men usually start heroic chase after routed unit right into enemy fire instead of holding the line at least theoretically. Real class act. In the end I just ended up stopping units from doing something stupid - instead of masterminding briliant tactical maneuvers - focus gets stuck - order your men to hold ground and fire on enemy -> they rout the enemy unit, but the focus remains, so they sit on the line and let the rest of enemy units destroy themselves. Is it really reality like? - I just do not see much of the glorified AI. Most of the flanking maneuvers are done by the fact that on many maps enemy units just appear behind your lines. Enemy is charging against much stronger forces you have and on top of it, it is usually working for him. Seems to me that what this AI is all about is considerable boost on enemy forces stamina and morale - regularly, less experienced computer units are better than your veterans in one on one shootout / charge. The other way around your guys get slaughtered - and the last annoying thing - does not matter whether you win the whole time in a decisive way. It has no effect on the enemy. Basically one screwed up battle on your part and you'll never get your numbers back all on the top said, I enjoyed playing the game, it is really good, but these things really drove me off - total lack of balance between your and enemy units, this moron-like behavior while chasing the enemy and of course the last one. Where is the motivation, if you excel in one battle and you know that the enemy will be only stronger because of it in the next
  5. Wanted to discuss the strength and damage rate or town forts after last nights embarassing debacle. On Tuesday The Spanish and French (25 ships ,1st-3rd rates)came to Kingston for a late night fight.Unfortunately England was only able to muster a small defence ,of mostly 4th-5th rate ships and 1 Black Painted Santisma. Forming a line at the harbour mouth.The Spanish/French waited till the wind was due north then tagged a passing ai force.England rapidly fell back towards Kingstons Forts.... However,the forts were sadly ineffectual,providing limited damage,and coordination against the enemy fleet.It was disappointing,the forts provided irregular shots,and very low damage against the attackers.It Would also appear that the fort that lies to the left of the harbour dosent work,i didnt see it fire once even when ships were close.They need to improve the forts a.i and introduce targetted volleys.
  6. Events

    Since griefing popped up as a complaint regarding events I'm opening this up per admin's request. Griefing is griefing and needs specific responses. But there might be a challenge with the setup as it is. We lose a dura if we're on the losing team, well, unless we manage to run, and that's not a satisfactory situation for the winning team being held up by a runner. We've discussed ad nauseam how anal players get when it comes to their durabilities. I suspect the queue times for events are rather long because most players are hesitant of going all in with their durabilities in the hands of random teammates. It's the worst of both worlds. The shitty loss (but you all say important) part of OW combined with the shitty random teammates of arena games. I can pay a durability every now and then for some PVP xp, but most players seem to avoid it. It would be really cool, even now in testing, to have some PVP on demand in events, but it's usually a ghost town.
