A Bit Rusty...

Having been absent from the game for a bit over a month, some newly acquired free time (and a newly-acquired ship) has given me the opportunity to explore the North-Eastern stretches of the map. Apparently, the French/Swedish/Danish alliance is not supportive of exploration, and as such I was also presented with the now rare chance to PvP!  I was attacked twice (in my Conny) by two separate Surprises... Thanks to [ER]Armand De La Croix and [HRE]Quios for the battles!   New ship's

8 years 6 times embrace Barcelona's La Liga awards

Experiencing 8 La Liga last season, then Barca took Real to embrace all eyes 6 times the championship. The dominance that will increasingly solid as ever, if Messi is still in Barca and Real are still too ignorant Champions League.

Tactical mistakes of Pep Guardiola

After lessons from former club Barca, Pep apparently not yet learned what experience. He had lost the cunning of Diego Simeone last night.   Regional defense art "strangled" tiki-taka   Like the previous game, Bayern Munich move more, control the ball more, launching more than rivals pass. Only thing, the ball just vicious in the midfield without financial naof closely approach the Atletico goal cumbersome due to the combination of the very abundant.   The difference in the scope of acti

Captain's Log - Day 1 - In Fort Royal, Martinique   Sailing from Fort Royal on the 12 gun cutter L'Albatros, we spotted a battle not far out of the harbor. Joining battle, we found 6 of our comrades in cutters battling against a British Trader Brig, Brig, and a Cutter. Other comrades joined shortly after to assist.   Sighting the Trader's Brig attempting to escape the battle, we gave chase.

First Lieutenant Grosse in his Majesties Vessel the Navy Brig with 22 guns Unfortunately, the success of the British fleet of ridding the Caribbean of pirates has not advanced as quickly as we have planned. There have been too many distractions caused by battles with vessels from other nations that we were sadly lacking behind our promise to the King of England. In this respect, the incident that has happened today to all British Officers in the Caribbean waters was to be expected. We were all d

Leaving my favorite harbor, I was messaged by Captain Charles Maxwell that he had ended up in an unexplored portion of the Caribbean. He sent through a few port names and the officers in our port were able to quickly identify where he was. With his vessel just north of Haiti and mine just south of Haiti, we decided to round up a pair of fellow officers and form a fleet. The fleet would meet up on the Eastern side of the Dominican Republic. With about seven interested British officers, we coordi

Having slept in a little longer than usual, my good servant Diener woke me to the smell of smoked ham, toast with jelly and a good English tea. After a refreshing breakfast, I read through the morning reports to realize the Danes and the Pirates were back in front of the entrance of our harbor. Sending a few officers to check the status of other British ships in port, they returned with a disappointing low number of ready and able vessels. Among the ready, Captain Charles Maxwell was there and w

As Master and Commander, t is so much more satisfying to sail a Surprise with a full compliment of men (240) , than as a Lieutenant (only 150). Since, being promoted and receiving a full crew I have mastered the art of turning a ship through the wind (tacking) without much problems. That alone makes me very happy. The success on the seas has been even greater. With a full crew, I no longer worry about brigs. I can lay next to them and board. They have half the crew as my surprise and are an easy
