  2. Реляция это вроде как письменное донесение о действиях войск. к Торговым маркам не привяжешь, а подразумевается вроде как одно и тоже, только один тип марок за боевые заслуги а другой тип марок за торговые. А по поводу ваших замечаний постараемся учесть. По поводу воркшопа возможно в доступном нам материале этого даже на английском нет. Я уже писал что не на весь текст в доступном нам файле есть "адресные отсылки" в код игры.

    Fastest square rigger upwind?

    what will or may happen is always up in he air, as it stands now there are several similar mods / books that perform a similar speed boost ( clock springs to mind ) the fact that the loodsman is useless in the instance is something that nerfs it already we all have access to it, not hard to get but IIRC books on fleet ships don't have the effect but I stand to be corrected on that. Only the other day I learned fleet ships don't always use mediums so it might be a patch I missed during my holiday
  4. Stop crying, this has been a valid tactic in NA since the game received Open World. It is 100% legal as the player does not disturb nation chat with trolling and sabotage or admit to spying.

    @Vizzini I think that navy loodsman should be nerfed. On the otherhand, does navy loodsman effect the whole fleet ?

    Battle system core ruleset discussion

    There was never a mention of Fair in the OP. Only notion regarding fair is open to the weakest BR side. Do not distort the initial notion.
  7. As usual people adapts. Organized teams form up groups that (if possible) almost cap PZ BR, so being sure to never fight outnumbered. Coupled with coordination and purpose fitted ships (the inner no-sense in any other situation of 11ish kts LO/WO+Kiritimati carro Surprises, just to say) they work to get best odds for themselves (rightfully I'd add). Now, getting back to topic, imagine the same ROE all over OW. Organized groups will wander around with bait ship, tagger and a bunch of purpose fitted ships, moreover using a mix BR ships allowing to them to - be tagged - tag - fight with best odds (joining all, some, reinforcing or screening out help) depending on the prey found. So bigger veteran groups will (faster) adapt, they will have the means and with knowledge and experience will exploit the most from the eventual new ROE, on the skin of? New players and brave lone raiders, who for a while, will keep tagging potential targets. And after losing few ships, lone raiders will rage quit like new players. This is, IMO, most probable outcome of such ROE. Not to say, again, that "same BR" has NOTHING to do with "fair" battle. Same BR can be a gold ship with some millions worth upgrades vs. a shop one, a 4000 hrs veteran vs. a 100 hrs (or less) noob, or even both.

    OCB / PEC Griefing

    I don't cry, I report in the tribunal grief that is ruining the game experience and on the border of breaking the game rules. Screening is a valid tactic, but the Prince captains should attempt to fight their battles instead of pure grief and time wasting actions. This is quote from other Tribunal:
  9. I'm not talking about a rogue player sending info to a friend in another nation here, i'm taking about playing two account, on French and one Russian at the same time, one connection for spotting in front or Fort Royal only and the other to chase

    Permits ?

    There is a distinction between 'Permit' and 'Note'. NOTE: you get the whole ship. You just right click and 'use' and select the wood types you want and 'voila' a new ship. PERMIT: This is just the permission you need from the Admiralty to build the ship. You still need to build the ship yourself. For an Indiaman you will a Level 2 shipyard and all the materials: Oak, Fir, Lignum Vitae, Coal, Iron and Hemp in various amounts, plus provisions and sometimes some doubloons (plus any other woods you might want for the frame and planking). Use the Building button, select your shipyard and hit 'craft' button, select 'Indiaman' from list, choose the wood types and then you can then see exactly what materials you will need. Google Translate: Il y a une distinction entre «Permis» et «Note». NOTE: vous obtenez le vaisseau entier. Il vous suffit de cliquer avec le bouton droit de la souris et d '«utiliser» pour sélectionner les types de bois souhaités et de «voila» un nouveau navire. PERMIT: C'est simplement la permission dont vous avez besoin de la part de Admiralty pour construire le navire. Vous devez toujours construire le navire vous-même. Pour un Indiaman, vous aurez un chantier naval de niveau 2 et tous les matériaux: Oak, Fir, Lignum Vitae, Coal, Iron and Hemp, fer et chanvre en quantités variables, plus des provisions et parfois des doubloons (plus tous les autres bois que vous voudrez pour le cadre et les planches) . Utilisez le bouton Building, sélectionnez votre Shipyard et cliquez sur le bouton "craft", sélectionnez "Indiaman" dans la liste, choisissez les types de bois, puis vous pourrez voir exactement quels matériaux vous aurez besoin.
  11. Last week we had another scrape at Coquibacoa. Apart from my own poor performance, everyone did great.
  12. Thats why I wrote if we wanted the same mechanic in OW. On a side note, lots of ppl actually goes to the patrole zone. I am pretty sure if admin made a stat over fights, my guess is Nassau and Deadman when they are on, can compete with the total fights in OW on the rest of the map. So ppl do go to patrolezones.
  13. This morning Vladimir Markovnikov and his friend CanorJax , 2 previous French player btw. Fouchet , and another one, where chasing noobs in front of FR. Nothing unusual. When i escape the tag from fouchet and place me in front of Rosau fort (they where 2 Hercule I was in Neufchatel ), I receive after a few sec a chat from that russian player (vladimir). He obliviously got my name from a double account (or a friend with a double acount) since i post my intention on the French Chat about RU EP and my intention to chase them After a discussion , he admit that his friend CanorJax (2nd RU EP in hercule) WAS Carl Bosch, the French player camping in front of Fort royal and getting info for himself and Vladimir Markovnikov See Screenshot (in french) IS IT ALLOWED BY THE User Agreement he sign agreement to have a double account open the same time to spy another nation? Should that type of comportment be punish by permanent or temporary ban? Shouldn't you guys (Devs) put in place a verification mechanic to avoid that type of comportment ? Â

    It might be the exact answer to your question Fox, but if you're talking about OW running about I consider the loodsman book well worth the cost. Doubloon prices have made this book ( perma skill on ow only ) affordable If talking about instance fighting etc then the others are far more knowledgeable than me Of course running 3 trader lynx past the only french Port in the Bahamas at a distance of 5k will incur risks
  16. So, I know that the major trade overhaul that introduces distances as a factor in trade value is coming soon™. Something that I am very excited about and look forward to testing on the testbed. Meanwhile however, I’ve noticed ever since patch 29 on December 17th, that trade goods barely spawn anymore. On December 16th most ports were stuffed with trade goods. With the patch the port stocks were reset to zero. However, they never recovered. Ports that are listed as spawning certain types of goods don’t spawn those goods at all, and other goods come in at very minor quantities. You used to be able to sail to a random port and easily fill 4 indiamans, and then come back and do it again a couple more times. Now you are lucky if you find enough trade-goods to fill a single traders brig. And it’s not like this is caused by other players snatching the goods in front of me, by contract or by visiting. Because I’ve kept an eye on several ports, and their tax incomes, and the latter has been flat on a low level the whole time for several of the ports I watch. I think that patch 29 somehow nerfed the spawn rate of trade goods. I would not make any fuss about this - I’ve been enjoying a few weeks with no trading, and I have enough reals still - however, I've been noticing other players pointing out the lack of trade goods both in Global Chat, as well as in other topics on this forum. And I therefore decided to add my own observations.

    Account Reset or Compensation request

    Solved as informed by OP. Locked.
  18. Because Circle of Death prevents fleeing in PZ most times... THATS the reason why people are avoiding PZ because they fear to get stucked in a situation that cant be solved anymore !!
  19. How about just playing the game and gain experience? You could add a second bookslot for your Constitution Classic. If you reached all five, the ship feels different and you will not need so many gear slots any more.

    Great idea to spend all the time sitting in port, teleport to closest spot and sail to GPS location 🍻 ( seas were empty when we had similar options - why sail when one can just wait - it led to even less conflict ) Beware what you wish for... for it might become true... just not the way you envision it.

    Final Exam Help

    All true offcourse. But ... perhaps it would be advisable to not advise new players to use huggingmechanics to defeat an ai-opponent? Isn't the point of the exercise to show what you can do while sailing, and not to show you what you can do while exploiting ai-weaknesses? (in PVE we offcourse always exploit the ai, but newer players will probably not know yet how to do that? (and perhaps shouldn't know about it too soon?)) Hugging ai can hardly be called a skill ... and it will get you/me (a new or inexperienced) killed against an experienced player. I didn't need to hug any of those ships to sink them (beat the first exam the first try and the second one on the second try (i was too aggressive the first time): chain one ship down, separate and drag the other one with me, destroy it, then went back for the second (the 'chained one') and graped and boarded it (no ram, just waited for it to make a tack (another abusing of predictable ai-movement)). Many new players, though, think that they should be able to finish the exam after they have done the tutorial. Perhaps a message could be given (in the tutorial) that the exams are hard (even for some veteran players apparently) and that getting more experience in OW (capping some tradeships, capping/sinking a few warships (missions or just free roaming)) is advisable before moving on and trying to complete the exams. (Obviously the whole tutorial needs some more work to make more sense to a new player)

    If you do things so easily all the time, why don't u try stop crying a river. what do u think, can u do it?
  24. Great idea !!! This combined with the "Battle is open for the lower BR side" will lead to massive PVP battles !!! ...and even better, the usual ganking Fleets would take advantage of such a system because "their" nation will also be on the receiving end sometimes and by such a message, they will quickly find their targets !!! ...instead of searching the Open Seas for hours and then gank the poor lonely Trader because he is the only one, they found
