    Give some love to Santa Cecilia (speed, HP or 5-5 slots or whatever), because such rare ship stands avarage compared to other ships of the same class. Players that own SC don't even use it, it's just a collection ship, good for exhibition and bragging rights, not PvP. Hostility missions - let shallow ports allow only shallow ships in hostility, nothing bigger can join. Make hostility % based on BR port (because of easy flipping shallow ports with deep water ships) Make crafting RNG based on shipyard lvl, player craft experience etc. (higher shipyard = better ships. More player craft experience = better ships). Because Master shipbuilders with a lot of experience will have better chance to craft exceptional ship than a rookie builder.

    I know some people who fight often purposely in trader ships. A kill should produce PvP marks whatever ship is on the other side unless it's capped.

    in battle: 1. after successfully disengaging give a global boarding immunity of 2 mins to prevent chainboarding Currently we have 1 minute and only for the guy who boarded me, not his friend standing on my side and pulling me instantly after I disengaged. 1 minute is not enough, often it is impossible to reach 3,5 knots in that time. 2. Change or nerf defensive boarding mods like books of 5 rings or especially Barricades. Its way too hard to win boarding against these mods even if you constantly counter the enemy (attack 3 times into brace and nothing happens lol).

    Between leeway and 120 deg wind changes, looting has gone from frustrating to insufferable in large ships. Spend 30 min sink a 1st rate, end up sinking him when I am literally bowsprit to bowsprit. Too far away from the X, can't sail into him because of the wind, tack, get in position to tack back, and Oh, wing change! By the time I get there it's too late to loot and so I basically just wasted my time getting jack squat for my efforts. Can't afford to buy books because people want stupid prices, and can't get them from drops because the looting mechanic sux ballz. Getting tired of it.

    add a cooldown to changing port timers of some days to avoid switching back and forth

    Hostility should be updated after the ship sank, and not after leaving the mission. Враждебность должна обновляться после того, как корабль утонул, а не после выхода из миссии.

    This morning when I was sailing with mytrader brig between La Tortue and Mortimer town, I met a pirate in Pirate Frigate, his name Teach Edward, from the WTF clan. I start maneuver and engage an AI fleet, the pirate entered the battle from my side, beginning to attack me, shooting my sails and hull. I imagine that his intention was to slow down so that the AI's would sink me. I've recorded it on video and I hope the punishment is severe. I did a F11 report too.

    Where is the challenge.. said by the ones openly saying not wanting even battles (esp. Around mortimer) I do see a challenge playing in a nation without a safezone and where every port can be captured

    Nation with second place online , with green zones , with all resourses for craft cant suck. We want large port battles and war with strong nation . With pirates its impossible . We cant war with sverige or RE because pirates are stupid zerg who want only PVE . We want PB such as Cartagena... with pirate we have only ports with 2400BR...

    One thing that has always bothered me in this game is that Oak has no use whatsoever - I have never built an Oak ship myself and I'm sure many others here haven't either, it's just no good as a woodtype - We see a lot of fir and teak ships around ingame, these woodtypes were commonly used historically but usually due to Oak shortages. I'd like to see more benefits to making oak ships, perhaps cheaper in maintenance? (repairs)

    I understand that repairs are an essential mechanic in game, and that the devs are constantly tuning how they work and using different ideas etc. BUT currently the idea of Sail Rep / Hull reps is SUPER CONFUSING (at least to me). At least with RUM you know 1 rum = 1 sailor. Currently I run with small ships (eg Prince, Niagara, rattler) AND Frigates. Also I have NO IDEA how many reps each type of ship will need to sustain myself through a tough PVP encounter for example, so I feel that I have initially been totally under repped (when I was used to the old days of 1 repair kit = 1 repair). After that I feel I have been "over-compensating" by stacking tons of repairs in my ships, and when i sik losing them all (and they cost a fair bit). Is the new UI going to have info on ships saying how much repair kits / sail repair kits are needed for "one cycle of repairs" ? Maybe it does already? I have no idea. EG: BEL POULE info screen: Hull Reps: 12 needed per cycle Sail reps: 15 needed per cycle. This seems easy to add and will make understanding what you can carry and what you might need to carry manageable for the player. at the moment I am totally in the dark. Also will the tutorials explain repairs to new players, and how many cycles will fit in a long battle?

    good idea - but requires coding barricades attacking bonuses will be nerfed this patch

    Make resources more accesible and evenly distributed. For example teak, much on east side, no on west side.

    Map size is meaningless when a part wants to do only the 25v25 "trafalgars" and the other part wants to roam around hitting the others. Their playstyles will never meet unless forced. Map size is only meaningful when game scale in space and time is 1:1 Original idea makes no sense. The PvE server ( needs a nice name btw ) has earned its own community and is simply a "SP mode" with social aspect.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could have this screen, at the end of battles, that allows you to collect your loot, have a look at your combat logs, and manage the number of repairs? Maybe take a quick 15 minute break, grab a snack, smack talk the revenge gank in global chat, etc. Honestly, the end-battle screen was great, IMO. It had problems but they could be solved, it didn't need to go away. Just have the battles kick players out 5 minutes after "Battle Over" and send them to the end battle screen. They can remain there a maximum of 15 minutes, at the end of which they are kicked to OW. Don't allow logging out in the end-battle screen if that is something we are trying to avoid (I liked it but I can understand why some players don't like allowing the log-out). Loot would be distributed in this end-battle screen. Each AI ship carries repairs, cannons, one book, and one module. If you are the only ship in the battle, you'd get all of that loot, if other ships did damage, they'd get some of the loot. RNG would determine who gets what, with quantities given out based on damage done. So if I do 70% damage on an AI Santisima, I would get 70% of the loot from the Santi, maybe books, maybe cannons, maybe modules, maybe a combination. The other 30% would be split among other players who did damage on the Santi. This is not a suggestion to remove the current looting mechanics. I like having the ability to access hold in battle. In fact there should be an option to "open hold" to allow other ships (friendly or enemy) to inspect your hold and take repairs or whatever if you allow them access to the hold. Furthermore, the current looting mechanics could stay, just have it so if you loot a ship in battle, you won't receive the loot from that ship in the end-battle screen. That would be my suggestion for the looting mechanics.

    Port battle for Chinchorro Spain vs. Britain Result: British victory Commanders: JAGs (Spain) vs. ??? (Britain) Spanish fleet lost 1 ship early to gunfire from a tower and could not maintain presence in circle B. Circle A was heavily fought over and the British lost 3 ships in the ensueing brawl. Nevertheless, the British defended the circles well and were able to bring home the vitory. Good fight! o7
