    Hiding in battles - implement "cant join PB" timer after a battle teleportingr around on OS-1 outpost selectable as homeport. changeable every week. Tow to homeport. Tow only possible without hold. (in the end it exists to unstuck) Thickness - nerf thickness of all 1st rates by 2cm. Thicknessmods should not be stackable. (is also a vm mark nerf because 2nds would be useable now and it is a slight cartagena nerf) Wasa - has to have 80BR more (250br aga, 330BR Wasa, 400BR Bellona Please fix this for god sake

    Ill get right to the point Why is it that certain 5th rates do not have bow / stern chasers? Lack of stern chasers severely limits OW raiding / solo hunting - Trincomalee as example could be a great ship, I would sail it a lot, but what puts me off is the lack of stern chasers. Since I mostly sail alone, there is literally no hope from escaping a super gank. Don't get me wrong, I like a challenging fight, taking a 1v2 1v3 or whatever. But at some point it just becomes impossible (Unless you're Ram Dinark). Can't just all 5th rates get at least 2 of each chasers, since from my knowledge, in reality it was not much of a deal to move guns on carriages in place to use them as chasers?

    Thats what we are showing poles now. Just like we made HRE and KOTO our vassal clans. Do you think prussia survives with your skill? Lol your nation can't even manual sail. You exist because EXILE allows it. You will die when EXILE demands it. When the time comes we will smash you.

    @rediii I can recommend this spray. I use it since a while in this forum and it works pretty fine

    Is anything being planned to try and combat the massive amount of blatant cheating happening around free ports to obtain PvP marks? Even when it is not an alt account is it two "friends" in different nations who just take it in turns to sink the other, usually one just surrenders instantly and the other sinks it via the inspection interface. Some people think they have become smart by boarding the other player first in an attempt to make it look more genuine but it's still really obvious. I'm certain I'm not the only one who has noticed it

    Just as a point of reference: HMS Victory: 60cm at waterline IRL USS Constitution: 55cm at waterline IRL FYI: Someone in clan just built a 14.5 knot Bellona with 85cm thickness. Because “mods”

    Six bow chasers? Jesus. The most a frigate could bear on an enemy was most probably four and that´s for the 18- or 24-pounder frigates and if the ship was sailing directly behind the other vessel, which would have been a rather uncharacteristic chase. For reference, here´s a rather theoretical plan for a danish 18-pounder frigate, the Venus, on how the guns could be angled in combat. If properly set up, she might have been able to fire three guns (two on the upper deck, one on the fo'c'sle) at the enemy in a wind- or leeward position. Edit: No, make that two guns only. Just had a look at the other plans, no bow chaser on the fo'c'sle possible, because the cat tails would have been in the way,

    Oh?! I assumed it deleted you hold after confirmation before the actual tp to home. I'm such a shitty tester because I don't do the chaotic neutral loophole abuse as a routine.

    Want some clarification. Before I write a quick and a good suggestion tho quick: teleport only possible to ports of your nation without hold Good: homeport setable in your outposts. Changeable once per week. No hold allowed The "exploit": Teleporting a RvR fleet next to a PB port to instajoin or "warp" trough enemy screening Teleporting your fleet ahead of the enemy you are chasing, "warping" to the enemy port Teleporting your fleet with 4 indiamans and full hold halfway to bermuda, making the sail 2 hours less Is this how the mechanic should work? Can we expect a hotfix? What should we do if we see a fleet warping to a portbattle/next to the port of the portbattle? Edit: last time I know a fleet did this was by LV / SORRY and a hotfix got deployed sonyou can not tsleport to regional capitals. (which didnt fix it to be honest. Problem is warping NEXT TO the PB

    There's no ganks, just absolute application of superior force at a given place in a determined moment. ... *drops smoke bomb and disappears*

    your quick becoming the hornblower of the russian nation ... i guess the one redeeming factor is your name in forum and game are consistent

    Pretty boring RP. I can also write bullshit without facts about russia. Whole population lost their rational mind and went insane after some victories without any meaning. After recent discoveries russian logistics and warfare is based on teleporting ships with a legal exploit of magic mechanics. Blablabla boring, I'm bad in roleplaying but you are even worse than me

    Because you get only one shot at a release, and wasting it just to have numbers be bloated for no actual gain is insanely stupid. Closed beta with old victims included is as safe as they come, open beta means you get under a lot of scrutiny and if you missed your chance you're living with a stigma till the end. I will repeat what I say every time - don't want to play closed beta, don't play it. It won't open up just because you want it to open "cuz gameplayz 'n funzies". The failure is not in the dev cycle, the failure is in you inability to curate your own expectations. At that point, you should think twice before calling others out on "adolescent rage".

    Hey Guys thought this might be fun for everyone. So describe your first day at sea in the open World. Spawned as a British lynx on Saint Johns. Sailed around aimlessly for 45min. Found A battle joined in captured a cutter and sunk a lynx! Returned to port bought cannons that were too big for my cutter wasted all my plunger Went back out to see looking for a fight. Found A pirate! Turned out he did not want to be a pirate and i made him promise not to pirate any ships in British waters. He agreed but just to be sure i let the fleet know. Found a lone French lynx! Chased his ass down! Started the take down! Wait What! A French Frigate come to his add followed by 6 other french ships! Dam! I try to Run But its too late! I turn and load double my crew dies I think of the Queen.. look at the clock i have been playing for 9 hours. Bed Time Hahaha And lets spell SEA right in the post tittle derp... What did you See at Sea yes...

    Yes just the other day after a battle close to shore a couple of guys after the instance were stuck in land and couldn’t move so had to tp. bug was f11 .tp with no hold seems like the easiest and quickest fix.

    Nobody blamed you cheating before Somerset. We blamed of hypocrisy and lying. Sweden used hiding in battle already before the map wipe. I definitely remember a PB at Bridgetown while we tagged Bollo who was pirate at that time. This was under your command and no problem since the western alliance had such a strong screening that entering PB would have been impossible otherwise. For exactly the same reason other nations used this tactic after. Since Sweden had the strongest screening of all nations after the wipe you didn't need to hide in battle. Since Russia had a decent screening fleet in front of Somerset we expected the use of this tactic by our enemies. And we were prepared to counter it instead of blaming you. That's when Swedes started to cheat.

    it was a fleet sent to catch the british hostility fleet that tagged our fleet once the brits got away due to BR mechanic.

    Wind changes IRL you can see minor wind shifts fairly often, in particular near land. But those would be small back and forth shifts 10-20 degrees or so. The wind can also shift dramatically such as when a land breeze gradually turns into a sea breeze, but that change could take a number of hours. You also can have steady wind with no shifts over the course of an entire battle. Basically small wind shifts are fine but large change in direction should be rare in the scope of a battle instance. @admin Speaking of wind - variable wind speed and weather conditions would help with ship differences. Not sure if Wasa discussion is OT here but - Just make Wasa a 3rd rate as she was, in particular armed with 32pdrs, and adjust BR accordingly. IMO should be a good reason to change a ships stats not because someone is unhappy their favorite ship sails differently now. Similarly even ships in the same class had differences and shouldn't be balanced for balance sake. BR changes should factor in as well.
