A treatise on Naval Action: a complete guide - Mr. Doran

That actually DOES help me a great deal! Not only from the perspective of defending the wind but also on avenues to get it back.

Well I'm almost in a frigate so I'd be happy to be a pawn in a video demonstration if this is being actively worked on :P I think a video, with pauses for commentary and notation, would be extremely valuable to newer players like me.

 

Hell, even a video of someone moving ship-shaped pieces of paper on a table with commentary would be useful as a visualization of these tactics.

It might happen. It was happening; Both an unfinished updated version that's sitting in Doran's drawer and supplemental (moving) illustrations. We came for the pure PvP and OW wore us down with all the added <clears throat> content other guys immerse themselves with.

Duel room and custom battles MUST come to NA Legends and I'll be happy to teach you what I was taught once that's easy to do again.

What server and faction are you playing?

Unfortunately I don't have access to Legends yet, just started playing the base game a few days ago, on Global PVP USA. For the purposes of contributing to an immortalized guide, however, I'd be happy to level up to a frigate or comparable vessel somewhere else.

 

I do find it interesting, the chasm between people that like the OW/open pvp versus what sounds like a more structured, balanced, faster-paced arena mode in Legends. Personally I came for a mix of Sid Meyer's Pirates and EVE Online, and I've been reasonably pleased so far :P

OW is great, hunting there is great and will be missed in legends. 

While we wait you can practise this over and over until you puke. You need to be able to do this without even yellow-lining your cognitive capacity so you can use that to outplay your opponent.

That's an awesome GIF and should be posted eeeeeeverywhere. I AM actually just starting to get decent at that, although I need to work on energy conservation because I always seem to be starting that turn at too slow a speed.

Hehe, that's the "larboard-to-starboard full rotation" described on page 6, points 1 to 5. I blush when I recall how long it took me to get that right.

Here's one in real-time:

Read it some time ago, beautiful work mr Doran

Something similar maybe could be implemented ingame in a new tab in port, call it Manual, FAQ or "treatise on naval action" or whatever... 

Id imagine a manual kind of booklet where the most important things are listed and linked so a player can look it up there first. Maybe a bit more basic and not only battle oriented mechanics (e.g. ships listed with stats shown and explained, crew and rank explained, repairs, crafting a ship, buildings, ....)
