And also when u have more nations, u have more pvp. Problem is people prefered to make na pve, cut some rewords after rank M&C and we have more action in pvp ;)

Unfortunately not. Because you end up with people that have to switch nations to get any kind of PvP for several reasons including numbers and time. And with the more than half dead server its hard enough already as it is.

This is the by product of Victorian romance, sorry.. They were never ever loved and even their own base of support ended turning them in. And all the records prove that, both in summary executions at sea, tribunal processes and subsequent executions and even the populations that "did support them turning on them". Do not confuse privateers and "elizabethian sea dogs" or the french tradition of "guerre de corse" with pyracy please.

for all the people  who want a merge with nations ,If you want a merge >

you can all use forged papers

you have the time until 15- 03- 2018.

use it and stop whining  about merge nations  i personally don't see the grass greener at my neighbors backyard 

nations are just fine we actually need more...... lol.  perhaps there is a chinese jonk captain  who wants to sail to the caribbean...

 

perhaps people needs to be told basics rules: like a ball who miss the target does do no damage, the only benefit for you is, you will be faster to run away...if you throw your cargo overboard:))

Take the game as is - Enormous open world – Large open world, recreated based on 18th Century maps, historical harbors, positions, and town names.

Anyone with the slightest historical education knows all these paintings are inaccurate at best. They was painted nowhere near the battle and always made so show a dramatic win. Same reason you almost always find the hull of the ships undamaged.

Old style propaganda if you like.

well it counts for almost anything, look at all today's games 

for one thing many ships who encountered pirates would surrender  and not a shot was fired , in those days the souls of the men were more important than the cargo

but in this game crew is worthless,  and way to cheap and in a huge abundance , i never hear anyone complain about that, it's just the shoe who fits i think.

As much propaganda as to hit a rudder of a ship, using a biplane as a weapons platform. in wallowing wind and waves with dead reckoning aiming while navigator hangs upside down to the side of the airship and making hand signals. Right ?

Gladly the official mission reports / captain's logs are very clear on many subjects. Including the example I give above.

Gladly on the XXIst century digital age a lot of primary sources can be consulted online via appropriate procedures as per requested by the archive holders.

Back to topic.

Correct and we are back to talking about game balance because historical accuracy in this game is limited at best.

Small declining server population and a huge map spread across too many nations is another downhill experience.

well we all live in a "a global world "

if i am chines i would choose a chinese flag to start with 

i have no problem with a other nations.

it seems not historical  but it is the way it is ,we can not rule out other nations ,many nations were on vessels together , and many flags were flown (look at banners and flags)

i believe RNG is more unrealistic than anything else ...

1st: It's not declining since several months

2nd: The sea is usually wide and some people draw excitement from the uncertainty what may linger behind the horizon

I think different nations are not the problem at all.

If a player can choose a flag at the start where he is familary why not.

But those nations shoud be more like Traders ore coud do Missons for the Main Nations GB,NL,ESP,FR,US,SV,DN and get some reputation from there Admirality. If they got enough reputation they will get a Privateer-Status for that Nation and get acces to build buildings in this nations and can do PB for that nation. This Sub-Nations are not abble to do PB by them selfe. If a player have choosen a Main Nation he can not select a second.

Chinese-Privateer-GB Playername

Same for Pirats i dont like the way it is right now Pirats shoud be more like the Hardcore-Nations. Delete the Pirats from Character creation screen and make it only avaible like it was in the old days if u attack a player from your one nation u went Pirat.

DK consistently brings 2 port battle fleets down into our territory at a time, when we can only bring half of one. denmark has access to woods we do not as well. the unique ID login thing is BS at best. and in terms of RVR, we cant form a port battle fleet consistently in any time zone. so there you go. "more numbers" my ass

The ability to mobilize forces says nothing of the total population in a nation. We mobilize for RvR - the dutch leadership refuse to come out of port.. Doesn't take a genius to figure out what nation will win that war..

Like I always say, "What is a Pirate?"  "Just a Privateer without a job."

Almost sounds like the royal navy's swordfish attack on the bismarck that crippled the steering...?

No merges. Nations, like Prussia are starting to take on unique cultures and identities that will appeal to all sorts of players. It's good for the game to keep the nations we have now. Sometimes I fear that calls to merge or remove nations is part of a plot to just destroy nations people don't like.

No they aren't prussia is just the fotm, with the majority of its players just hopped on the bandwagon in the last week or 2

 

 

3-4 nations max gets my vote

If you would read once again it says while in alfa stage. With amount of bugs and balancing issues, in my head those would be more important to deal with, than sailing around in the empty world. Release full map in beta.

You are actually very close to the mark, according to one after action report at least one navigator did exactly that! That said it will never be known whether it was skill or blind luck that the torpedo struck where it did, in all probability it was a combination of both.
