reinforcement area, how to

Question

I love this Game. But that’s just the Intro.
A lot of information I found about reinforcement seems outdated.

 

I always felt safe when doing missions in the "protected area" because of this "reinforcement available".

But there must be something I'm missing, thats why I'm asking here.

Q1: is reinforcement coming automatically or do I have to call them somehow ?
Q2: how do I call them if Q1=YES ?

I made a Mission with my relatively new Bellona. Obviously the place of my Mission still is visible on map for my enemies (that would be damn cool for them) !?


Two crossing Swords showing them where they have to sit and wait if they are fancy for my new fully equipped Ship for their own dirty purposes ?

Furthermore, the BR and the numbers are telling them what ship they may expect to board for their own fun ? Well, how good for them !

 

My Battle was over and my new Bellona has been attacked by the Band immediately within this so called “protected area”.


I thought that shouldn’t be an issue, that’s why I always do clickorgy for 5 minutes like an idiot to have missions within the protected sea !

Finally, I got one automatically reinforcement. YES !  One wimpy Mercury joined the Battle and supported me promisingly.

 

 

So, it was a Bellona (me) with 400 BR (a little scrunched after my CM) and a reinforcement Mercury with 70 BR,
against: Pirate 180, Endymion  225, Bucentaure  450 !

thats a 470BR vs 855BR !

My reinforcement was a thankful plus of powerful +17.5% and by this a total joke for my opponents !

And this is leading to my final question:

Q3: If I have no solid protection in the “protected area”, why should I ever again build a *ship* for missions, having two crossed swords indicating of where I am for them, to simply steal "my time and work" with the *snip of a finger* ?

This Game is so beautiful, but there’s absolute no balance nor any fairplay which leads to pure frustration.


I’m not going PVE and I wont join any winner-parties, I’d rather dump the game.

But thanks for any Hints I wasnt aware of. Maybe that was just my fault because I couldnt locate the "REINFORCEMENT" - Button.
There is too much Info and I simply dont know what is fact and what was once in time ... is there a Button ? Where ? No ? Press "m" ? Hmmm..

 

Footnotes:

*ship*: half a week of waiting & working and Inventory-Sokoban, harvesting materials, LH's, Gold, plus CB-Marks for Permits and Bowfigures
*snip of a finger*: usually is a boring boarding-minigame which I HATE SO MUCH MEANTIME. No cannons, no skills, but preparation and wait for the last second crap.

you possibly didnt read it correctly !

My Mission was OVER and I hit the Button "Leave Battle". I was in the PROTECTED AREA (reinforcement available). 3 Players were WAITING for me and attacked me.
How do I call the reinforcement ? Do I have to call it or is this automatically crap 70BR Ship all I can expect ?

Press CTRL to get the mouse cursor and on the left side you can click on reinforcements. 

With new UI it will be easier to call them.

Missions in protected waters close immediately - no bad guys can join. However, If you attack an AI fleet/player in protected waters/ or do a mission outside protected waters, then the bad guys can come into your missions. You can only call reinforcements if you have been tagged by an enemy in protected waters.

Once in battle you get the option to call in reinforcements

Youll get s hyper ai 1st rate per enemy attacling you, no matter what ships he / they are in

Reinforcement zones only apply if you are attacked, not the attacker.  In terms of missions, you are the "attacker" having joined the mission.  If you got reinforcements, they would be in the shape of 1st Rates.  In this case, it seems another player came to help you out.

or even so the player in the mercury might be a friend ( not saying he is, but people have used this method before :P ) of the brits.

As experienced people see, the mercury is the top name of the pirate side of the board, meaning he either tagged himself and the bellona into battle, or he let himself get tagged dragging the bellona into battle making only the mercury call reinforcements( i think). Seems like you might be a victim to an good ol' game mechanic
