The Running of the French

Recommended Posts

After another battle yesterday that we lost due to some tactical, i had thought that the french were getting a bit braver again. However this morning i see that another french port has been put on a timer of 03:00 to 06:00. It seems that not only in battle but also in the whole RvR, the only thing they can do is run away froom a fight. We all know their kiting tactics but now we can even be kited in a port battle because of the absurd timers.

Our friends the french declared very formally a war with GB but honestly if you only put your timers at times our better players arent on it can only be that you are scared to fight.

Meet you on the battlefield, I hope ....

I can fully understand that clans like WO and BLANC put timers to their primetime. But EU clans like EDR hiding behind timers is beyond my comprehension ...

Brits ports at Bahamas: 11:00-14:00

 

RSC and probably most of the british nation are from Australia.

 

Little harbour instead have 17:00-20:00. Probably to make it sure it is going to be fully defended if attacked.

I don't think it's that many Ausies, but I did notice a lot of ports have that timer set as I was looking for targets...I mean just admiring the great map work in game.

 

Did a bit more looking and notice CKA which is a US/Canadian clan with mainly East Coast players.  They always attacked us early in the day when they get home but most of the other US is at work still.  Wonder why they didn't pick a US prime time window instead?

Our Global server, as it should be called, deserves a "universal" hostility system that would involve all players whatever their time zone.

The only way to achieve that is to implement port attack/defence over a minimum of 48h server, it would require at least 2 consecutive steps (PB?) that would involve at least 2 main time zones players.

The PB would be largely predictable and would mobilize as many players as possible.

Dev's it's still time to find a balanced system for "every players".

Timers are totaly wrong, a tested feature that should be forgotten for ever.

Even the EU based clans changing the timers? So I suspect that isn't the reason

@admin was it reheeally the intention of the servermerge to allow factions to AVOID port battles just because they are too cowardly to play the game?

Been suggested before and it won't work - the playerbase is not universally divided into timezones..

perhaps we should try and arrange our war , around the tea time of your "better" players ....

Would you like a weeks notice, so you can inform your council to arrange a meeting of the better players , then inform your council as to the time and date of the meeting, to see if you can let the French council know what time will be best for the battles to start

Most of the large nations now appear to have players from multiple time zones now and will set timers according to their whims and or tactics

And divided between the french, the russians and the brits.. The carebears of the US doesn't seem to exist..

What war???? Like i said almost all the timers are set to the middle of the night for the EU players. Doesnt really seem like a war but just a hiding behind the timers. Seems like too scared to actually fight.

GB didnt declare war on France it was vice versa

Exactly.

I suspect France expected it to be an easy win so when they started getting their arses handed to them repeatedly in actual fights they had a slight change of heart.

But Christendom assured us this would never happen!!

Everybody who said otherwise was simply ground down in his relentless shouting campaign, even in threads that had nothing at all to do with it. Surely you're not saying he was wrong?

You must be wrong.

Brits are complaining of bad timers so it cant be possible that they set timers to avoid being attacked.

Why not just make it from 11am-11pm? Bugger everyone else :D

Before complaining about others, explain us please, who is defending your ports between 11 - 14 h. When we attacked you at that time, nobody showed up. PB timer exist. And they can be used for tactical issues. Using them while you blame others for doing the same is hypocryte. Or did you find a rule that PB timers are for Brits only?

the recent attack on ex PLA ports? A clan that nobody has ever seen. Don't know a single member. I only know they are chinese so 11 - 14 should be a good time for them.

So brits are not a nation with a mostly EU community, instead is full of asian and oceanic players. That is very interesting.

The brit nation never sleep considering that, almost every day, they attack a pirate/french port with EU timers.

Have a look on the map. It's a CKA port. And there have been much more at that time. You changed it after Russia took two of them. There are Britisch ports set on 5 - 8 as well. Don't point with your finger on others. The other four fingers are pointing on you then.

So, you assume a timer set 11 - 14 automatically makes a clan oceanic or asian. Ok. EDR must have lots of US timezone players then. gitgud

@Graf Bernadotte I love you, man. Didn't REDS change timers to avoid being attacked?
