well considering you quote me you care. You see I make 4 points on what I consider flaws in the combat system. I have pointed them out before this battle happend. You come spamming this topic with stuff that is irrelevant to battle results. This thread is about battles and how we won/lost them.  @Hethwill can you please delete this trolls comments?

In what was perhaps the largest array Hercs in a PB yet on the server, the US had a fight with the Brits tonight at Harbor Island.  Resulted in a Brit weenie roast in and outside the port.  Unfortunately we capped all 3 circles again and ended the battle way too quickly and I think our screeners prevented some of their fleet in.

Thanks for coming out boys!

Dunno about the Brits

Thanks for the great fight at Lamona @yarrgh, 
it was a fight at the same height. 
Both sides had ups and downs and in the end it was a fair draw! 
A nice boxing match over twelve round ^^

The Dastardly French thought they could catch the US unawares this morning while in beds or at our Mother's Day brunch.  They double flipped Walker's Cay and La Desconocita on us.  The no respect for brunch morning flippers were wrong. 

La Desconocita Battle - A good bunch were screened out and sunk by US and our Swede buddies.

Walker's Cay - Again the swedes helped out with some good screening and then we wrecked face inside the battle.  France lost 2 Hercs and we recovered a Naval Clock, which will be used to fund the war effort in the gulf.  Our 2 losses were to a Herc getting blown up.

Swedes doing work!

Sneaky attempt there Frenchies, but our desire to sink you with our Hercs was greater than having omelettes du fromage with our mothers!

GG to all who showed up.  See you nice and late this week!

A tale of seafaring shenanigans, naval combat, and some brave skippers...

There we were, Mal Function and I, a light (Mahogany/Bermuda Cedar) Bellona and an Endymion, sailing to the patrol zone at Aves. We spotted a British squadron of two ships, a Santisima and Trincomalee returning to Aves. We maneuvered to engage and simultaneously signaled to our friends in harbor to assist us. This is a breakdown of the battle that ensued.

Shaky Beginnings:

Being the closest ship to the Santisima at the start of the battle, my driftwood Bellona was destined to take some damage. I managed to carefully avoid the worst of the Santisima's opening broadsides and positioned myself to stern rake. Shortly after the battle started, we were reinforced with an Indefatigable (unfortunately, the ship was not supplied with repairs and only equipped medium cannons), Captain Teutonic; and an Endymion, Captain Coraline Vodka.

After opening the stern armor, I was able to make a pass with grape and incapacitate 180 of the brave souls aboard that first rate. By this time, my sails had been shredded and my ship was fairly damaged. I ordered my crew to patch the hull and signalled the frigates to move in to chain and grape the fleeing enemy.

The Chase:

Captain Ghostwork, aboard the Santisima, showed great skill in placing his chainshot into our fleet. Together with his friend Swakara in the Trincomalee, they managed to maintain their distance for a considerable length of time. Eventually my crew managed to repair the hull and patch the sails well enough to move my rotten old Bellona back into the fight. Meanwhile, our frigates had managed to rake a significant amount of crew off of the Santisima and damage the rigging and hull of the Trincomalee. Unfortunately, Mal Function's foretopmast went by the board, having been shot away at the cap by a shot from the stern chasers of Ghostwork's Santisima.

Closing In:

With my ship repaired, I moved back into the fight. I expended the last of my chainshot taking the sails of the Santisima down to 68%. With assistance from Coraline Vodka, I attempted to push the Santisima into the wind to board him. Captain Ghostwork expertly handled his ship and avoided a boarding engagement. He was also able to repair his sails again and gain some distance on us. Needless to say, we were discouraged. 

A Risky Maneuver:

My crew once again climbed the rigging and repaired our sails. Mal Function and I moved in, determined to take that first rate's mainmast. Meanwhile, our other two frigates engaged the Trincomalee, inflicting heavy damage. Taking a risk, I decided to maneuver alongside the Santisima. My gunners trained their double-charged cannons on the mainmast while Mal Function's gunners did the same. The Santisima's broadsides were devastating to the ancient timbers of my Bellona. Despite taking heavy damage, we stayed alongside the enemy. At last, the very last shot of double charge aboard my ship caused the Santisima's mainmast to fall by the board. The Santisima was ours for the taking!

It Worked:

My crew threw down their slow matches and ramrods, and took up their boarding grapples and weapons. With the Santisima's boarding well in hand, our two Endymions fired grape into the stern of the first rate and continued chasing the heavily damaged Trincomalee. Teutonic stayed behind to claim some repairs from the loot. Just minutes after the capture and scuttling of the Santisima, the Trincomalee slipped beneath the waves.

...Ok, thats enough of the roleplaying (I'm not very good at it anyways). :lol:

 

It was a fun fight. We had the BR advantage, but they had the firepower and some tougher ships (my Bellona was an old speed build: mahog/cedar, and the Indefatigable had medium cannons and no repairs). The British players fought well. That Santisima's sail repairing ability was simply astounding. Also, those big carronades with chainshot HURT! 

o7 and thanks to all who participated.
