That means more rogues and traitors will stay in your nation :)

Well they can’t shoot at me regardless, so tallyho! I’ll use them as cannon fodder

Usually people in your own nation can cause more trouble than enemies ;) Enemies I can kill at least...

What are the developers thinking?

I bought this game because the description said it was a 'historically accurate' game. The past few updates have have done nothing but make it more and more casual, which is eroding the charm that the game has.

The game is a huge grind-a-thon and nothing has been done to fix that. When faced with constant grinding, the game can easily become boring. We don't need BR or PB reworks - focus on combat, focus on AI and focus on making the game less of a grind.

Oh, and Prolific Forger is just a blatant cash grab, no matter how much you dress it up. Among the myriad of issues to still address, DLC in an Early Access game is Simply something that should not be. If anything, it has only confirmed my fears that this game will turn into Pay-to-Win bullshit once it leaves Early Access.

You have a niche audience for this game - you can't afford to lose them.

Sometimes you need 60 players to attack (15 in PB, 45 screeners), but only 15 to defend.  

Screeners should fight screeners, PB fleets should fight PB fleet.  

Yah that is my biggest issue with port battles and them saying, "We lower the BR to give smaller clans/nations a chance."  Uh no they still have to fight through a ton of screeners if all they can field is the PB fleet they may never make it to the port battle.  Any nation can screen another nation out of a port battle even if it's not a port they own.   This would be a very tricky mechanic to work around without doing something like Lobbies for port battles which I don't wan't.

Please do read carefully everything before posting with such haste.

The DLC item grants the player the opportunity to change nation every 30 days. There's no limit of uses, it is a one time buy, use as many times as needed/want. It is a comfort item, not a necessity.

Any player that is certain of what their place is in the game sees no need to change nation will not consider it. @sveno comes to mind. Adamant eternal captain of the Swedish Krown.

Hope it serves to clear some of your doubts.

I prob will put it on at least one char.  Now if they will just come out with a name change token or something. I have one char I use to like flipping around names and nations on just to try new things.  When I switched nations with him I would make a Nation name that was proper for that nation.  Since the wipe we really can't do that unless you delete the char.

I hate to be that guy but it's "received" and not "recieved". :P 

Also it seems that there are some grammar mistakes in the descritpion of the DLC's Steam page. Proper grammar matters to people in these situations (or at least to me and i am not a native English speaker). 

Regardless, the art style is lovely.

$10 max, forget about $20. No matter if it has infinite uses. More and more I realize that NA project is just a rip off. So much promised stuff got removed and now we have to pay $20 to switch nations? No way.

Not only grammar that makes bad impression here. Money is in the details...

Thanks. What about Nassau? Is that on purpose having 2850 BR?
