Captains. Lets talk about balancing of repairs. Multiple players request limitation of their numbers. Some think that they make battles much longer. Our goal with repairs is the following Provide the money sink Give the option to the captain to recover from mistakes (for example the ability to repair masts only in port would be ok in a single player game but wont be ok in a multiplayer game - because no-one would like to stand still for 1.5 hours losing masts at the beginning of the battle) As a result of this goals repairs must stay in game and captain should decide himself how many repairs he carries and how many times he can repair in battle. What we would like to hear is your ideas on repairs that could improve combat depth (increasing importance of first proper shot and focus fire). For example - we are considering. Add speed debuff when you repair sails/masts. Ships cannot repair sails/masts at speed. Add speed/water intake dependence: structural and penetrating leaks will take a lot more water if sailing fast and will take much less water if you are stationary.
