Hey indianageoff what’s your name in the game because you talk a lot but I never see you in battles. Maybe you use a different name. If you don’t you sure have a lot to say about a server where you just don’t have the relevance to do it. Unless you play under a different name of course

Even before KoC and his sunshine band of alt abusers started their reunion tour people were losing interest.  I personally dislike the gank vs gank style of pvp and would prefer to just roam around looking for other solo players or small groups.  Unfortunately we don’t have the numbers for that style of pvp. The constant gank outside of torture isn’t healthy for the server, regardless of which side you’re on.  

 

Doesn't the Mortimer Daily Tribune carry a PSA advising captains that the area is to be avoided?

Carriacou Port battle (don't remember limit)

Sweden vs the United Provinces

Outcome - dutch win defense

AAR - i was not there but from what I hear the following happened. The Swedes came with 4 santissimas and the french successfully screened one out of the port. Reports say the swedes made a crazy call to scuttle their own ships so that the french outside would not capture the 1st rates which made the job easier for the dutch within.

The 4th santissima which survived the port battle was then subsequently captured outside by the French. Resulting in the swede fleet sunk and the french/dutch fleet holding their ground.

I play when I can.  A lot of nights I have an hour or two so if I find quick Defense duties, Hostility or other PvP, I do it.  If I don't find it quickly, then I'll PvE or craft/trade run.

I save big blocks for Port Battles when I can, but I don't make them all that often.  We have been on opposite sides and you will recognize my name if you see it.

Not that your point has any relevance.  I play the game the way I enjoy it.  I am not sorry if it does not meet your standards.

Don't mind Simon. I think he has three wives, about fifteen kids, and lives in a one room studio. That kind of insanity is enough to make anyone a little crabby every now and then.

Navasse stream.  My setup was a little weird and I'd skip occasionally....gotta stop mining.  

Pirate Victory

Not really sure what GBs plan was.  They deployed A wasa and buc upwind at C.  We sent a surprise there to harass and deny points.  Sent 4 wasas to take them out.  Brits deployed the rest of the fleet downwind at B and our wasa group went in to harry and kite.  I'm thinking GB expected us to send everything downwind to sink the bucs and they would just come in and cap A and C while we fought upwind to get back.  Poor choice, if you're going to bring beef to brawl....then brawl you must.  I think they expected us to no show and weren't' actually prepared for a fight.   

Relatively easy win of kiting and outplay.  Thanks for coming out GB >

If your going around with four trade ships and not escorts and your getting ganked every couple of days it's your own fault and yes we have had a few guys complain about it every couple of days. They are the same guys with only one or two slots open and still think they can make more money trading than just running a few missions and opening up those slots. They also cry when they can't get there ships to do the same as us that have open up our slots.  You want a 15 knt ship your going have to open more than one or two slots.

yep, as long as there are rewards to ganking / alt farming .....people will abuse it.  I wasn't a fan of the ctown ganking or whats going on outside of LT

And it's true... I think the only ships I have now at la tortue are fast frigates (Endy and Renommees).

The last fight I participated in was a rescue mission. Amiral Lou (in a Wasa) was sucked in a battle from a French AI targeted by pirates.... I came in with my trusted reno and we were able to save both ships from a big ganking group.

Rincon - 2,400 BR Limit

French Vs Pirates

Outcome - Pirates successfully Defend

AAR: From reports, it sounded like it was fairly even in terms of the fighting, but the point game was in the pirates favor. France decided to bring a heavy Buc fleet with a small support of lighter ships whereas the Pirates decide to bring a Wasa Fleet. France had the intentions of holding 2 of the 3 circles and then forcing the pirates to face them in order to create a brawl. It seems the pirates decided to contest the circles and use a part of their fleet to hold the French up while they took control of 2 circles. at one point or another it seems the Pirates were able to force the french off the circles due to the power of the Wasa 2 gundecks.

Thoughts: I believe if 2 of the Bucentaure were dropped for 3 Wasa and an extra ship this would have been an even closer fight and possibly a French win - but that's just looking from an overview perspective and not someone within the battle. I do enjoy the Circle game play now - it forces engagements but also allows for strategic decisions.

The Wasa (and the Buc to a lesser extent) needs a Br adjustment for sure, but seems both sides enjoyed the fight. That's what we are all looking for in the end, some good fights to be had.

Honestly, I think it could have been even more one sided after watching my stream back if we'd had a surprise, as planned, that could've gone after the mortar brig instead of a Wasa just chasing him off station. We might have kept the Wasa's engaged at A for just a little bit longer before regrouping, and as at least a couple of the Buc's, as built, were very squishy with one more broadside in the main engagement we could have focused down at least one more. This would have likely snowballed into a resounding defeat instead of just a tactical one.

But overall, I agree, it was a good fight and definitely nice to face old foes and friends alike. ;)

Perdenales

Swede vs french "nightcrew"

Outcome: france defends

Barbancourt himself was able to hold the swedes off from getting 1,000 points for the entire battle. Resulting in a successful defense. He reported that the swedes came in at a terrible wind position and that probably cost them. No sinks, only the loss of repairs.

Some good OW fights tonight.  Almost a flawless victory.  Props to the US players who came out and risked the big ships.

BLACK SATURDAY WAS A FAILURE FOR THE KING OF CROWNS ALLIANCE

Carta PB - Pirates Win - Christendom leading.  Unknown who was calling for the brits.

The mortar brig strat was a little hairy, but we successfully sucked them into the channel and they of course had nowhere to go.

Port de Paix - 7200 BR
Pirates Successfully Defend vs French

DE8BE4ABEB6AFCB5158D0861AB4CEA82212AF68F

Good evening all,

It was my duty and pleasure to command the defense of Port-de-Paix on Nov 18, 2017. This was a long, engaging, and bloody battle which concluded with the destruction of the French fleet.

This was my second time calling Port-de-Paix against the French. The fleets were of similar composition as before, with the addition of a mortar brig on the French side. Unlike the previous encounter wherein Pirates had excellent wind advantage, the Pirate fleet was at the mercy of the wind blowing straight from La Tortue towards Port-de-Paix. The French joined near La Tortue, and the Pirates crept up the coast to the edge of the circle nearest Tortue. Pirate light ships were deployed to capture circles to the west.

The French fleet took excellent advantage of wind and mortar brig to drive us from our initial position. I myself was demasted at the very start, but was fortunately able to repair quickly and remain relevant. Pirates engaged in a slow sail northwards to draw the fleets together; as the French approached the Port-de-Paix coast we wore westward to keep pace with their line. Shots were exchanged on all sides, but no demasts or decisive actions were achieved.

Given the wind direction, the next part of the battle was a series of downwind/westward wears by the pirate fleet as we continued to pace and batter the French fleet. Once the pirates were forced out of their home circle, we became separated into two groups. Both groups were skilled and fortunate enough to stay alive and reunite at the center circle.

From that point on, it was a brawl in and around the center circle, a full 90-minute fight wherein neither side achieved 1000 points. Pirate light ships engaged French light ships, ensuring the French did not gain points via circles though they had two captured. Through bitter struggle, the pirates gained a slight ship advantage that slowly snowballed into victory.

Both sides showed themselves excellently, and a big thank-you to everyone who showed up! I am glad to have taken part. Some of our members were worn out from a port battle just an hour previous; apologies for any frustrations on our side since it was only my second time commanding a port battle.

Nassau - 2500 BR

Pirates Successfully Defend vs United States

A7930EF9AF62FFF01A060A2D5EF05BA4EB022B24

The US seemed to have some trouble skirting the fort, but eventually got into the first circle.

Not sure what to say about this one. The port battle was a quick affair, being a brawl around the first encounter circle. Pirates won on points and enemies sunk.

This port battle occurred an hour before the defense of Port-de-Paix, and 90 minutes before the defense of Cartagena. Somehow we pulled off all 3, so many thanks to everyone who rallied to the black!

I would guess they where trying to buy time and tie us up in this one.  As that is the only thing I can think of why they just sat in the circle.  They came in late too, 6 mins was all ready passed so we had all ready gotten to all the circles and started to cap them.    I get coming in late for tactics, but you can't do your whole team being late.  I noticed the coming in late has been happening a lot so not sure they just can't get the group ready and on the go, which we had issues with too so understand how much a pain that is specially with the new BR rules, but you got to be ready, grouped and on the way before it starts.  

Cart on the other hand they put a hurt to us with those Mortar Brigs, but I think they held back a bit to much on there forces or they could of done a lot more damage early one.  Once we got them dedicated into that channel it was on.  I'm so not bring L'ocean any more as I keep spending half the battle in wind or trying not to sink....lol  That is defiantly a Victory type of port battle.  It was good to pop back in last night and get into some fights.  New job starting up I won't be around prime time much so glad some of the guys been stepping up to the plate and calling these battles.  Good job over all and same for the US/GB/French for bring fights, but would nice if they would actually fight each other once in a while.  For the 100th time US and GB needs the practice and it's better for them to get it on equal skilled players than loosing all the time to the more elite players.  Helps moral to win once in a blue moon.

French were doing quite well hiding the initial targets of engagements - at least one target managed to almost fully repair and re-engage. French also scored the first kill by isolating one of the ships. Not surprising considering they had the wind advantage for most of the fight. 

It's surprising that we managed to reverse such significant enemy advantages and win.

You did incredibly well despite the adrenaline, pressure and adapting to situations. 

This was the first time I lost a First Rate in a port battle, and I would gladly repeat the experience to have such a glorious battle. I managed to position for some good trades, placed the last few broadsides into the enemy flagship, and went on to capture an enemy ship while sinking. Goodbye Santisima, you served me well. 

Salute to the French, great fight.
