I see your point. But in my exoerience the home team allready have the advantage. I been by the britts and french lately. We come 2-5 guys and in a couple of minuts they are 10-20 guys in the battle.

the chance for us to get player in are slim. If they not allready are in the area, it is to late anyway. If you want to protect new players, let them have a neutral pve area, where they can leve up to ex captains, and then join there nation. If they leave before, well then they play at the same risk as other players.

As the home team should have..you come to the green zone you should be at a disadvantage..the green zone is there to protect new players

I agree, no complaint from me. I just think it is big enough. Problem is not close to Capital. But the reinforcement zone further away, when you trade.the Ai isent worth anything if you are in a trader and players will need to much time to come to your aid. But is mostly the traders own fault. How often don’t we se traders in fleet, But no escort ship.

The real problem is, that content creater aka the guys that come to your capital are always the stupid ones that loose stuff because of getting ganked. This game currently punishes you for trying to get pvp because nowhere else you will find a player. Players still need reasons to leave the zone!

Chain damage greatly increased but sail repair didn't. When start a battle in wrong position 2 or even one player enough, one chain shot can drop sails to %60.Even If I dont try to sank that or those guys I cant escape from backline. Sail repairs should increase %10 or chain damage reduce %25. Not using chain or not trying to demast enemy should be an option. And there is no option like that. When you are not hit enemy sails or masts, you are loser. Every player trying to demast at first minutes of battle. Except big ship fleet battles.

Its good to get your positioning correct before the battle begins. Sometimes this means coming to a complete stop when being tagged (to let the enemy pass you, so you can gain wind advantage). You can also depower and angle your sails in battle to avoid chain damage. Lastly, you can always use mods like Basic Strong Sail (+10% sail HP) or Rigging Specialist perk.

There are many battles that I go straight for hull damage (or boarding) and ignore chain/demasting altogether. There are many ways to fight a battle and tactics should depend on the situation and the player's style/competence. Just because someone is using a certain tactic it doesn't mean that you have to do the same thing 😉

So far I have 2 problems with the new interface:

- When at sea, if I click on a French Officer (my nation) their rank will be automatically in English instead of the French equivalent.

- the position on ping/number of players present is not convenient as it's under the chat box.

Otherwise no complain for anything else.

Thanks for the patch and I can't wait for the one for crafting/economy :)
