I just throw my thought into that thread

 

Shallow ship that will be new pb meta 

I would love to have more reason to have mix fleets.  Like some ports have the third circle in a shallow area that only light frigates or shallow ships can get into.   With Unity 5 they honestly have no excuse as they can extend the land under certain parts of the battle maps to rep shallows in game battle.

 I think one of the battles that got screened out or didn't show we had plans to bring something like 6-8 Princes for one reason.  To circle jerk the crap out of the big ships that can hardly hit them.  Yah one good broad side and they prob be sunk but as long as you have more Princes in the circle than they have ships your owning that circle....we might still try it again on a fun port battle for a deep water that doesn't matter.  Just like we joke about bring all mortar brigs on both side and last man wins.  Only rule is after we get in place and first shot fired you can't move other than to get in target range again.

That so far looks like the best option for  the ship since all the HMS Hercules where 74 gun ships.   It's stated as being US or Russian built but doesn't seem there would be plans for it if they don't know who built it.  Maybe it's just a test ship they never finished.  Though having something like an Argentina ship would be interesting or even a proteges.  I can see them doing the main in game ships of the main nations, but have some premium ships from other nations or variants of the main ships sailed by other nations with there own set paints.

Armament 4 guns of 24 pounds 
8 guns of 18 pounds 
12 guns of 8 lbs 
6 guns of 6 lbs 
6 guns stone

The 24 lbs and 18 are carros, while I assume the 12 8's would be our in game 9 lbs.   Would be intrested if they did the split deck thing like the prince on this ship.  While it might have 4 decks on papper you put the cannons on, but the model has it spread out so it's two types of cannons per deck.   

Remember the Cerberus is a 26 gun frigate and the Reno is a 30 gun so this would prob sit right between those two ships. Looking at the stats it seems like a more heavy gun (though lighter) Cerburas but that is more nimble and about the same HP.   If that crew stays the same it would be like the Wasa with a lot of guns but not all the crew needed to man them.   Whic would be it's weak point.  Light ship version of a H.  Rattler than.

Says how?  I seen tons of folks still use this ship for PvP and other things.  Maybe not for the PvE guys, but there are ueses for the smaller ships and it's getting more and more seen with the BR limits of RvR battles where you can squeeze just one more ship in if it's smaller.

sound more like some sort of  the heavy rattle we have already

find it strange it is the 6 rate first instead of the promised (yes promised ) dutch ship first

very very odd..

We play different games, it seems.

I NEVER saw a Cerberus nor in OS  PVP neither in screening or port battles. I just saw newbies grinding low level missions in it.

Besides the fact that any decent captain in a carro Niagara (lower battle rating and shallow water ship) will make a quick work of a cerberus.

you can alter it with 2  ship slots so it does not have to be a problem.

(that hurdle is taken care of )

Is there a detailed post in the Dev section about this?  I don't see one.

ROFL, you know how disjointed the information flow is from the devs,   LOL sometimes they only post in the Russian side of the forum.  You know, the whole "discovering things there is fun!" shtick

It appears we have to watch random twitch streams to get feedback and interaction with the dev's. :rolleyes:  This was re-posted to the NA Discord by @Liq.

Just ask @Hethwill and the other ROVER guys just how effective the Cerberus can be in OW PvP.   The problem is to many folks think bigger is better. I remember back on POTBS we us to take Van Horn Snow's out as a pack and take down rank 40-50 ships easly just for fun.  Yes we loose half our ships while doing so but the challenge was to not only win, but to capture the ship too.  So some one was walking out with a much bigger ship than we started.  Now your pack size is growing.   Niagara while a great ship in it's own has some other issues, less crew, less guns, less BR do start to take into play when your going against a bigger ship, but yes you can do the pack thing with Niagara's, but they are also very fragile, I seen Cerberus take a beaten a Niagara would never have withstood.

I can prob name off a half dozen players on the server I seen use them to very effective means and I wasn't always on the winning side of those fights either.

Yep that is why I liked the prince showed us we can do some multi deck mix of cannons if the devs wanted too.

Interesting, but still couldn't find any real data on that ship other than that post, but the one posted has a lot less guns in the API files so not sure.  The Dutch one I think had 26 - 24 lbs and 26 - 18 lbs so not a bad make up. We could use some more Frigates even in that class too.

They really should make the paints multi ways to get like rewards chest drop in PB's and such so it's not just all who every willing to pay for them.   I'll admit if they make them like ship knowledge where once I buy them I know that paint for every than I wouldn't mind them being DLC store items, but until than can we get some more in games please @admin just as loot chest until you do the prem store thing?  It's so freaking bland looking at all these ships that look the same.

Potential here to completely kill off open world hunting.

They still have to get to and from Patrol Zones...fairly predictable routes.  Even if they're towing ships to nearby outposts, those outposts need supplies.

Some do it. I've seen @Otto Kohl and some others do it.
