    That is why they lie. If it was not for the human interpretation statistics would be facts. You take the players of the ship in account but not the ships they fighting. Are requins fighting 7th rates or 5th rates on average? Also a issue is that you cannot take the entire skill of the community into effect because many players do not know how use ships correctly. Most players can handle bigger ships better than smaller ships. Smaller ships are easy to sail but way more difficult to master. The question then is if noobs know how to take advantage of the requins strengths? Most noobs shoot stuff and do not use the 2 "overpowered" traits the ship has. Boarding and close hauled speed. Another issue with meta ships is that they will often be fighting the same meta ships. Alot of the pvp kills in hercs and requins were in herc and requin port battles. Stats do not say a thing about a ships ability in my view. I don't call the DLC ships overpowered because I believe the game mechanics are at fault and certain ships are simply better than others. Endymion is simply a better ship than a trinco. Its how it was in real life and I will not complain about it being the case in game. The requins biggest advantage is that it takes 2 unrealistic elements. Pushing ships into wind and hiding under guns. The Herc is not overpowered because she is just a great ship ingame and in real life. I have said many times that its turn rates of smaller ships that make the herc an issue.
  3. I don't know if I am the only player that has this issue but both the type and item in the contracts window will not let me select anything but Almeria Saltpeter. Does not matter what port it will not select from the scroll downs. So I can never place a contract. I have 0/10 contracts Windows 7 .. all the other selection screens work in the Port GUI as far as I can see. Also a bug is if you open the contracts window and then open or move the store screen on top then double click on the resources tab it will bring up the resources scroll window from the contracts only.

    Same reply. Stat don't lie. But if you want me to be more exhaustive : Les statistiques ne mentent pas. Elles expriment une réalité statistique calculées selon des formules connues sur une population connue. En l'occurence, les statistiques d'un navire donnent une idée de son utilisation par l'ensemble des joueurs qui l'utilisent, qu'ils soient ou non compétents. C'est donc une photographie globale du navire dans le jeu. Par contre, les statistiques peuvent aussi être manipulées quand on ne sait pas ce qu'elles recouvrent. Par exemple, si l'on ne prenait que les stat d'une catégorie de joueurs (les bons ou les mauvais joueurs) et qu'on généralise ce résultat pour parler d'un navire. Mais ce ne sont pas les statistiques qui mentent, c'est leur interprétation qui peut être erronée.

    Lettre aux développeurs

    Après aujourd'hui je pense que personne ne peut se représenter ce que ça peut être que de naviguer sur une navire de cette époque (c'est quand même beaucoup d'hommes entassés sur des navires somme toute bien petits même pour les plus gros de l'époque) et de compter 10 ou 20 morts dans ses rangs sur une action, c'est pas rien. Des morts hein pas des stats de jeu videos, et 40 blessés au milieu de tout ça avec des blessures bien corsées comme les projectiles de ces époques en causaient, ça suffisait souvent a casser le morale ou rompre le combat, s'échouer volontairement ou abaisser pavillon avant d'y passer tous. La plupart des morts sur la bataille des cardinaux sont morts de noyade (quasi personne a bord ne savait nager) Le patch avec les hitbox d'équipage qui entraînait 200 morts en une bordée de grape dans le cul c'était la cata: ni réaliste, et encore plus fumé

    That's why... they don't lie. 😉

    Clan management ideas

    VCO is a loose affiliation of privateers. We have the People's Shipline for which we have a 5-10 crafting alts (though most of us and our alts are all Level 50 crafters anyway) that provide ships/repairs/cannons to whoever needs them, few questions asked. Line ships are a bit of an exception, which we currently ask for some doubloon contributions for though that will probably change as they become more plentiful. Most of us who are rich donate the majority of any earnings we make in doubloons and resources directly to the clan, and those members that are still trying to level their crafting are provided resources out of the clan bank to craft whatever they need. We used to ask members to reserve a single Outpost for production of crafting materials and organize that across members so no one had to devote anything more than that, but that's almost not needed anymore as we lose so few ships, make enough money from ports to cover their costs, and are sitting on so many materials that most of us probably aren't even using all of our labor hours any more. Basically, the clan provides for all, with a minimum of demands, within reason. Only people like @William Death, who has, shall we say... expensive and edge-case tastes, are required to fend for themselves for upgrades, dueling ships, etc. The People's Shipline keeps us in PvP-ready and port battle-ready ships. We all pretty much do our own thing except when it comes time to PvP and do RvR. We have a few folks in the clan that call battles if needed, but most of us are vets, deal with comms in a superlative way which we enforce with an iron fist (almost to a person we are adults and act like it) and know each other well enough that battles are pretty quiet affairs. But voice comms are basically required for coordination of PvP and RvR. It's been this way since Early Access.

    stats are lies. They dont take skill into account.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    ≠ La Renommée 1744 Also, no better source ? (edit) Draft I found for La Renommée : 13 1/2 French feet (in front), 15 French ft (at the rear) (Boudriot) To be verified and converted. 4-5 m ? btw, draft may not be the most important factor. Broadside weight is too.

    Patch 29. Preliminary information

    @admin you mention 4 meters as the cutoff for shallow water ships... Yet I don’t see the Essex or Indefatigable in this list, and there are some ships on it that shouldn’t be! Unless I’m reading this info wrong, please see look at links I list for reference. Also, add the wapen as a shallow water ship to give it some viability!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_frigate_R%C3%A9publicaine_fran%C3%A7aise_(1794) 5.5m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Surprise_(1796) 4.2672 (4.3m) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Pandora_(1779) 2.2m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Cerberus_(1758) 3.2m If you're going to have the 5.5m renomme, add the wapen and others! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Essex_(1799) 3.7m https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wapen_von_Hamburg_(1722) 5.5m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Diana_(1794) 4.2m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Indefatigable_(1784) 4 m after razéed https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Endymion_(1797) 4.8m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Trincomalee 3.9m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_frigate_Hermione_(1779) 5.78m https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_frigate_Belle_Poule_(1765) 4.9m

    Preparase para el "great wipe"

    Gracias Alatriste por tus palabras, voy a poner una reflexión y sigo hundiendo ingleses, con todos los ingleses que he hundido que no sé ni cuantos han sido solo en dos ocasiones he recibido malas palabras muy al contrario he recibido en la mayoría de ocasiones alabanzas de gente que estaba hundiendo, se tiene una imagen muy negativa de los ingleses cuando tienen un sentido del juego limpio fair play caballerosidad y reconocimiento de méritos propios que es envidiable. Respecto a los jugadores que solo entienden el juego desde el rvr están perdiendo y ya quizás sea tarde por el poco número de jugadores, de aprender a jugar a esto que es solo y en aguas enemigas, se están perdiendo mucho de este juego, este juego no es solo rvr tiene una base social política económica, el buen resultado del rvr es el resultado de que todo lo anterior va bien y no lo contrario, se ha intentado que esto sea un cuartel cuando la gente que juega por así decirlo son civiles voluntarios y han perdido quemado a gran parte de la comunidad que ya no se quiere implicar en lo que quieren hacer unos pocos por sus narices. Respecto a liderazgo militar el que está demostrando que tiene dotes de mando originalidad cohesión de su gente entender los fundamentos básicos de la guerra capaz de sorprender al enemigo es Churruca de la Santa Hermandad que está logrando resultados como muy poca gente. Nuestra economía siempre ha sido un desastre muy al contrario al de otras naciones, y la política no ha existido esto es un cuartel y aquí se hace lo que dicen un pocos normal que la gente se vaya a otras naciones o deje el juego.

    A saw too many people being captured by LRQ just because they enter in battle downwind of the Requin, then sail upwind at 5 knots to try and join the fight. 75% of the job is made by the "victim": no preparation, sail upwind, no mobility no speed. I have a lot of examples of fights with @Licinio Chiavari, being in a Navy Brig. He finally got this ship at maybe the 20th fight, because I made an error in manual sailing and because my sails were still reparing from 65%... I agree with @HachiRoku that the problem with LRQ is not how to survive, but how to sink it, because in a squared rigged ship, the damaged Requin would easily escape upwind. 1v1 gives very little chance to a squard rigged captain to get a kill. I should be interested in stats, but I think that 1v1, the LRQ gets a kill probably more than 50% of the fights, and is killed probably less than 5% of the fights (according to what I saw in front of KPR).
  18. нет никакого старого курса. есть цены тортуги, с довольно пустым рынком. покупаешь-продаешь - смотри на наличие товара. загрузить 4 индуса это 155 штук, если индусы с пушками. МТ всегда был торговой меккой.
  19. лихо народ зажрался. 230к сейчас это по старому курсу почти 6 мильенов. мало? с нынешним онлайном пройти по пустому морю проблем нет. я не играл за ри, но пруссаком заработал миллион очень быстро. сейчас за пирата создал перса - признаюсь, мне просто лень. куча поблизости от портов, где товар покупаешь за 4-5 тысяч и продаюшь в мт за 8-10к. причем сотню миль всего проплыть
  20. AKD!!!!!!! O/ So the rumors are true.........
