Happy Glorious 1st of June, captains

Recommended Posts

This day should not be called Glorious, more like a cluster f*ck. Howe did not prepare his fleet and caused massive casualties and let French escape. 

Howe defied naval convention by ordering his fleet to turn towards the French and for each of his vessels to rake and engage their immediate opponent. This unexpected order was not understood by all of his captains, and as a result his attack was more piecemeal than he intended.

6 French ships captured and one sank, no British ships lost. I guess French forgot to use Determined Defender, while British had some rageboarding mods...

 

Maybe in order to honor the Glorious 1st of June, we should limit DD to 15%, so that similar battles can happen in NA? :)
