A speed capped ship is nearly uncatchable due to it being well max speed nothing can run it down. Also when the game has reached the point where nations can not leave their capitol area because they will be murdered the second the leave, (THERE IS A PROBLEM). Now we can argue over what that problem is but there clearly is one.

I am pretty sure nothing ban a player to sail a Cutter out of KPR to a god forgotten place... open an OP. Then move there his ships... then farming quietly there.

The problem ARE the safezones: all stay there (due to no need to leave them) and there all hunters come.

Of course, if I'm grinding PVE I never do it in the safe zone, it is the single most dangerous place to do PvE on the entire map except maybe the patrol zone. The problem is why on earth would some scrub who doesn't know the game very well think to leave the "safe" zone? If its supposed to be the pve death trap zone of lurking death, why not tell new players?

When a person who has played the game for less than a month is sank in the reinforcement zone they aren't going to think "huh, maybe I should leave the safe zone and find a different spot" they are going to think "holy hello kittying shit, if I can't survive in the 'safe' zone i'll get slaughtered in the unsafe zone!"

Unfortunately you seem to be a very angry man.

Try not to get so emotional. N.A. will change many times and not always the way you want.

In your eager attempt to continue with your hatred of the ship you failed to to read the first line. I said 'changes' to the ship.

My advice as a long term tester of this game is to expect many things you disagree with to com and go and also to stay.

So I have read my post several times that you are referring to and cannot see where or why you would say that I am angry. I took a point that you made and destroyed them. Like this:

I did not fail, you did.

as far as being angry, no. My arguments are well reasoned and correct. I just happen to like game balance and this ship upsets the balance of the game. Your only answer is that I am angry and I hate. Very sad.

Yes and nay.

Cancelling (not-)safezones will make people consider all the map.

Secondly. It has been repeated daily both on forums and in game that Capitol areas are the most dangerous.

@Old Crusty posting untruths on the forum is so easy to do and so hard to get away with.

What you have attempted to do is take two unrelated posts and put them together in a feeble attempt to show me contradicting myself and you 'destroying' me.

This kind of this kind of thing is distasteful at best and dishonest at worst.....

Your last post:

The post where you took these quotes from:

136088263_oldcrusty3.thumb.png.f8e0b1abc90545a86bf6ccc87bef5404.png

One of these posts was not with you and was in a different context.

Its a shame that you tried this. You have not 'destroyed' my points as you put it. All you have destroyed is your credibility.

Sad.

😒

Req is best thing to happen to RA, leave it as it is (until have killied enough to get my targets).

Req is most balanced ship in game, it's great.

 

Buy it and go out in teams of 4 to capital area's it really is a religious moment.

I won't be commenting on this topic of the Requin anymore because it seems to just be going in endless circles.

It's now just the same few voices all deeply entrenched in thier views on both sides.

I personally do not believe the Requin to be such an issue anymore infact I did not see one single Requin yesterday on the OW and I feel confident that @admin will eventually publish figures which will show this decline in its use.

Although the issue at times got heated,

I enjoyed the debate and I bear no ill will toward anyone, on either side.

I look forward to sinking and being sunk by you all in game. (If you can catch me)

😁

A raider always fights or runs.

Especially granted there's no reward losing your ship.

Requin is a ship that can, realistically, be only a boarder. I would like to remember she has less armor than a rattlesnake. Why in the hell should be used (not talking about being definately not a stable gunnery platform) to fight side to side?

Is a fast Herc better because she sterncamp SoLs then hull hug to them and sink them?

Or is it an issue of being boarded in place of being gunned?

And @Licinio Chiavari  clearly said 'true Xebecs' had 500 crew not the Requin which he clearly said had 250 + mod ability.

We must all look and read what others are saying rather than jump to derogitory remarks based on wrong information.

This is the first time I quoted you. Notice the first line. It reads, and I quote “ the ship has been substantially nerfed since testing. I took issue with that.

then you responded with a few changes made. Only one change that you listed was a nerf and a minor one at that. The other changes were 2 bug fixes that allowed the ship to take crew and rigging damage just like any other ship. And then there were a change or two that effected all ships. 

The only conclusion is that your first line of “the ship has been substantially nerfed since testing” is complete and total BS.

then you responded to my post and instead of telling me how I was wrong or misinformed, you call me angry and a hater. You can now post any number of times attacking my credibility and me personally, but it does not change the fact the the Le Requin has completely destroyed the balance of the game in shallow water and that the only way to counter it is to spend the money and buy your own.

i don’t remember if it was you or someone else that said that everyone should be able to come up with the money to buy one so just buy it and quit complaining. Well, I will not support the game by buying s ship that is ruining the fun for most people in the game.  

By this time you should just stop, move on, and eat Crow.

I used some time to give you a detailed list of nerf, defenders' errors and not Requin OPness issues, some (basic) NA history etc.

Was it sufficient? Need more? Is something not clear?

May I propose you a crack course in anti-requin combat techniques?

Still remembering you... That using her ahgressively is the best way to learn how to counter her.

You were not the person that resorted to calling me angry and a hater instead of countering my points so why are you here?

since you are here I will say this, telling someone in a 6th rate that it is their own fault for getting boarded is like telling a victim of a robbery that it is their own fault for being robbed. 

I will not buy the Le Requin because I will not support the development of this game by buying a ship that almost the entire community agrees is bad for the game. 

You, Crow and other gankers love the ship. I understand that. You must understand that the vast majority of players think that the ship has completely unbalanced the shallow waters and has taken the fun factor away from the game.

the ship hurts the game.

I challenge you to start a poll that finds out if most players think the requin is bad for the game.

What percentage of the people that play the game do you think come on the Forums? I don’t know and I am sure that you don’t either. What percent of people that quit playing the game comes onto to the Forum? I don’t know either but I bet it is almost zero.

A poll here, or on Steam would be very inaccurate.

I do not think a second about angry or not angry (this is the question...?).

You stated some facts. I replied to them.

Is 1st rate captain's fault, or nimble 5th rate captain's merit, when the nimble 5th rate sterncamp the first to death and then sink him?

Usually something in the middle (a wise one said "the same skill to avoid being sterncamped is needed to sterncamp").

In our case, with my Requin experience, I'd say it's a bit more... 6th rate captain's fault. May be you didnt notice Requin mediocre turn rate; especially in front of other 6th rates one. Keeping silent of running with the wind speed of the two ships.

Anyhow: already explained, but you didnt (want to) read. Again: would you like to have a fast crack course on "how to fight a Requin"?

First statement: your choise.

Second statement: not so smart not supporting a game you'd like to see growing and developing.

Third statement: "almost entire community". Please, proof.

Anyhow, it has been already showed (like by Hethwill's posts) a Requin can be defeated by other (craftable) ships.

Again a "FACT" of your previous post simply... Not a fact.

58 minutes ago, Old Crusty said:

You, Crow and other gankers

"Gankers". Again. From ethimological perspective (a lot vs a few/one), raiders are more often "ganked" than "ganking". The fact they are able to outrun, is usually bad coast defense set up.

From more ample use of the term (superior skill/experience/gear vs inferior)...

a) is it superior force fault being... superior? This is not "Hello Kitty Online". This is a WarGame. And warfare is never fair.

b) isnt so a "gank" everytime a pvp veterans in super mod (ANY) ship easily kills another player?

Again: proof.

Moreover: they think it's unbalanced knowing intimately her (the Requin), or simply (at the moment) not knowing/being unable to counter her?

She had some balancing issues. Correct. They have been corrected... Far faster than other inbalances in the past.

Do you want more nerf on her?

Explain exactly what you would like.

About fun factor... Definately personal feeling. Doesnt it?

Again: proof.

It's your opinion. Fine 

Still opinion from someone who has zero clue about handling that ship.

Arent you saying «vast majority» and «almost entire community»? How is possible with such majority to be unsure of the outcome of a poll?

Req is just as it should be.

Buy one and raid enemy green zones, then you will see it's brilliance.

The AI can't compete with 6th rate and if to much you can run away.

I would love to see all capital zones with hordes of req's outside so all you can see is a sea of red sails. :)

Buy It!!!!!

Why should be not valid the poll is not, in the end, relevant.

Did you ever reply to my counter facts?
