  1. Hello Gentlemen, Another idea...sorry. As usual thoughts, opinions and tweaks are encouraged. Yet again, my target is to remove the single ship spam, which is, 25 1st rates vs 25 1st rates or 25 Agamemnons v 25 Agamemnons. The game needs battles with ship diversity, which unforunately is not happening as people are recognising the best ships and building large amounts of those. In such games as Rocket League or Guild wars 2, when crafting or obtaining new items, there is a certain amount of luck involved. In guild wars 2 for example, you have the mystic well (or mystic toilet), where you throw 4 items into the well, and gamble on getting a better one. Rocket league has the exact same system for decals, wheels, toppers etc. What i'm suggesting is for the Devs to remove the ability to pick WHICH ship you want to build, and only allow the player to choose the SIZE of the ship they want to craft. For example: I want to craft a Ship of the Line. I need to provide a set amount of materials and then if I want to increase the % chance of getting a 2nd rate or 1st rate, i need to throw in some extra rare items such as the notes we used to have which would be a more expensive gamble. 3rd rate - 40% chance Bellona - 25% chance Bucentaure - 15% chance Pavel - 10% chance L'oceon - 3.33% chance Santi - 3.33% chance Vic - 3.33% chance I'd love to be able to have the "HOLY HELL GUYS, GUESS WHAT, I JUST GOT A 1ST RATE!!!!!" Conversation on teamspeak, and this would be a stepping stone certainly. In regards to this making fights uneven. Yes you may end up engaging a superior fleet from time to time, but if you end up with no 1st rates v the enemies 3 Santis, make sure you sink them, so the next battle, any advantage is yours, not theirs. You can't expect to go into EVERY battle with the hope of winning, but you can certainly go in, do enough damage that ensures a victory in the long run, if not in that particular battle.
  2. It's fair to say there are very few commodores / flag captains who would take their 1st rate in a port battle right? I'm saying that EVERY current Rear admiral, as well as new ones would be subject to a demotion if their efficiency points drop below a certain point. Historically a schooner, even a frigate would never EVER, go anywhere near a battle of line ships, they would get absolutely obliterated just from one broadside. As you say later in your reply, the smaller ships need to be utilised differently, either harrassing some of the SOLs from a distance, engaging the enemy frigates, capturing a domination point, sending landing parties to neutralise a land battery etc. What I would encourage from this community guys is not to simply naysay, that is, to reject an idea straight off the bat, but to tweak it, much like what Tommy did in his post above. Notice the flaws, and addres them, make it better. Thats how we resolve issues like these effectively, by giving the devs a polished idea that could actually work. For me personally the single ship spam (1st rates / Agamemnon spam), alongside the still, very basic UI is the ONLY reason I'm not returning to the game. Which saddens me, as it's really a lot of fun!
  3. Gentlemen, glad to see the ship still floats, I've been peeking in from time to time on the status of Naval Action. I've been silently willing certain patches and changes to take effect, which sadly have not, despite the really nice work/patches the devs have implemented thus far. One of the primary reasons I'm delaying any sort of return to the game is a problem that has existed since we made the transition from sea trials into open world Naval Action. 1st rates, and the non existance of squadron diversity. The game has been a 1st rate clustertruck since the beginning and I cannot express how boring, how tedious it is to have 25v25 1st rate battles, and know that virtually ever captain has at least one, in some cases 5-6 of them. I believe the devs tried to combat this by capping certain port battles to 4th/5th rates etc, but the result was still very much the same. We ended up with 25 constitutions v 25 consitutions. Again. Just tedious. Where is the diversity? Why aren't fleet battles consisting of: 2 Santis, 1 Victory, 4 Pavels, 8 Bellonas, 4 Bucs, 6 Frigates and a couple of smaller sloops/schooners v a similar force? Why aren't said fleet battles optimised to utilise the strength of a frigate/schooner in a SOL battle? I'd like to suggest a system inspired by our very own Naval history, called the "Battle Record System" (please see image at bottom of post) Essentially instead of experience being the sole factor in rank (and through this, ship choice) a players naval history will also determine his rank: As you can see in the attached table my rank, and consequently the amount of crew i am allocated / ships I can sail is dependant on my Naval record, be it good or bad. I am rewarded for fighting honourably, and victoriously, and punished for cowardness + defeats. How does the Efficiency system work? I start at 10 points as a new player and gain: 1 point per ship sunk in a PvP battle. 1 Point for a decisive victory. 0 Points for an indecisive victory. I can also lose: 1 point for losing a ship durability or ship. 5 points for retreating from a battle. 1 point for losing a battle. Not only will this limit the amount of rear admirals the game has, but it will also target trollers, griefers and time wasters. If you enter a port battle you are committed. If you withdraw, you suffer the fury of your national Admiralty via your battle record. Thoughts?
  4. Agreed, Nash is definitely the best Fleet commander the dutch nation has.
  5. Great post Ragor. Hit the nail on the head. Similar situation. I told him directly It wasn't even that I was angry at him, I just felt sorry, and pity for him being the way he is. He of course, retorted with screaming, cursing, swearing and general QQing. So the teamspeak banhammer came down. Pellasgos. Above is the most productive, constructive post we've seen so far. If that isn't a wake up call then I dunno what is. (Beware the THE PELLA-PUTDOWN #4)
  6. It happened gents: THE PELLA-PUTDOWN #3 So just to clarify, and i'm only stating facts here: Two people thus far, in this single thread, have likened Pellasgos to the greatest tyrant and deluded psycopath of all time? And he tries to laugh it off? There's a hint somewhere buddy.
  7. Here we go gents: THE PELLA-PUTDOWN #2 I'm glad so many people hating you is an achievement! 150 years? Whoa whoa whoa. As tyrants go, you have some competition buddy. I know one other hated individual you may get on with, and he's only made it 71 years! ---------------------------------------------- I'm just...I can't I'm coming back daily to about 6 likes per post. You have 0. is that not, the simplest way of judging whether you're winning an argument or not? Let me just requote two people who hopefulyl will wake you up: Nash - Btw pell, you have fall pretty deep since the last time I talked with you. Admiral Horatio Hornblower - I believe the post should be modified or you must apology. I have fought hard and lost ships and I dont deserve, neither my guys, this kind of behaviour. ------------------------------------------------------------ Embarressed me and my friends? Dude, you're arguing with someone who doesn't play the game any more I don't have any clan, guild or nation, moreover I don't have any authority at all! That sounds like someone else I know Dick Brave - Furthermore I have to clarify that Capt. Pellasgos is not an official representative of the Dutch Nation High Council, even if it might look like. -------------------------------------------------------------- The problem with this one is your inability to distinguish fact from opinion...a dangerous habit. You were in a 25 v 25. You lost 8 First Rates. Didnt kill a single enemy. LOL Perhaps the above screenshot of you losing the 4th rate fight was also a 10v25. I could be wrong, but I count 25 there as well. ---------------------------------------------------- Acccccctually. This is why I temporarily quit: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/14351-neverending-wip/#entry265510 You're welcome ----------------------------------------------------------- Eh? What PvE friends? I had lots of friends, which ones are you referring to? Maybe this one whom has already recieved a lot of abuse from you already? Edgey the Edge - i have no respect for him as he respects no one else, from the day my clan joined the dutch nation, after moving from pvp3 and getting told that we know nothing were all noobs and we should F*^k off we know nothing. without actually knowing anything about us or our accomplishments. Popular in school were you? This one below is a cracker! ---------------------------------------------------------------- Just to reiterate. I dunno what Amm Maa Laa Kaa is. Some greek porn pun im guessing, but I BELIEVE, Pellasgos told 26 people to go fuck themselves. Am i right? Way to take the higher ground buddy! ------------------------------------------------------------- This grammar hurts my soul. I literally have no idea what you just said ^ -------------------------------------------------------------- Bring on THE PELLA-PUTDOWNS #3
  8. That screenshot. Oh dear haha THE PELLA-PUTDOWNS #1 Now. Because I'm not longer playing the game, but have decided to help out the dutch council as much as possible. I'm just gonna have some fun updating the Pella-Wiki. I have quoted multiple people from this very topic in the interests of education, i hope they don't mind: Bubbles - we in DAS were wondering what substance you used to inflate your ego. Air or nitrogen? I personally think it is nitrogen, cus your kinda toxic. Stephan_Decanteur - Pellasgos, I don't care if you are our ally or not, you are better than this... Don't gloat. Admiral Horatio Hornblower - I believe the post should be modified or you must apology. I have fought hard and lost ships and I dont deserve, neither my guys, this kind of behaviour. Pelennor - Isn't that game rated pegi 8+ or something ? Such a childish post. Nash - Btw pell, you have fall pretty deep since the last time I talked with you. Jan Breydal - I think the British players who helped us and are still helping us deserve more respect Mr. Pellasgos ... I feel your anger but this post wasn't needed... and remember, actions speak louder than words!!! Ragor - I still do not change my opinion regarding the OP and the displayed disgraceful attitude. Dick Brave - My final, personal recommendation to Capt. Pellasgos: You, Sir, are splitting our glorious Nation by your repeating rude attacks against other players. Furthermore I have to clarify that Capt. Pellasgos is not an official representative of the Dutch Nation High Council, even if it might look like. Olav Deng - I will only say this, in my opinion attacking your allies and fellow nation mates(albeit in different clans) is not the way to go Roelandus - Great job on pulling a Charles Caldwell, only you needed 1 post to insult our allies instead of 2. And as a bonus you insult your own nation as well. Capitan Sanchez - Thank you for this wonderful thread. I did not know that Nelson had reincarnated in a schizophrenic child of twelve. Plerick De Badas - Alwais fun to see a nation autosuiciding Bramborough - Judging by the responses seen in this thread, one might get the impression that Mr Pellasgos has fallen rather short of his stated intent. Captain Chaos - Everything Captain Chaos said was amazing! xD Edgey the Edge - i have no respect for him as he respects no one else, from the day my clan joined the dutch nation, after moving from pvp3 and getting told that we know nothing were all noobs and we should F*^k off we know nothing. without actually knowing anything about us or our accomplishments. on the few occasions ive been in port battles where he has been they were all unorganised stupid losses, other battles i have been in where he has been with his sheep have left the battle and they have resulted in big losses where losses should have been minimal. Add to all that he seems intent on causing a split of the nation by insulting people personally, insulting other clans and then blaming others for his mistakes Chakal16 - Well... Pellasgos is going to ruin the salt market... Bouganville - When everyone behaves rationally, that is... here it's clearly not the case. Olavandeng - We low PVE scrubs will forever bow down to you since we are obviously not worthy, we are obviously zeroes who know nothing of the game what so ever and have only played PVE, even back in sea trials(which many of us did play) JollyRodger - I am British captain and I want to support you but I struggle to commit when having to deal with this split civil war bullshit Lyste Pier - The real question is when it becomes disrespectful, and there my Pellasos you have overstepped a line of decency too be honest Tac - It's fine , pellasgos was in DAS we had a ego purge, hence this nonsense. Tenakha Khan - I keep in contact with the official diplomats appointed by the Dutch Council. It seems you are not one one them as every current and former Dutch diplomats confirmed countless times. Something you tried to hide to Celtiberofrog... Captain Chaos - I have been around for almost 2 years now and in my opinion you are a disgrace to this community and especially to the Dutch nation. Man up dude. Whatever is going on, you are better than this. Alex-SD - Last night there was another attempt by this P-commander to take Barranquilla.You will never get tired of failing? Pablo Frias - I think Pellasgos is a spanish alter account. NeonBird - Pls stop, my English degree will be in jeopardy if I read verbal diahorrea like this from you everyday. Stop dividing the nation you are a small part of and just play the game. You probably take yourself soo seriously to make up for what an utter utter joke you are. So children, what have we learnt about Pellasgos? - Lets start with a positive......................................................just gimme a sec....i swear, just one moment....................wait..............err................ok i'm stumped. - He's a terrible, terrible battle commander. Unsuprisingly we have a nice snapshot above for reference. (if anyone still has that screenshot of him losing 8 1st rates without killing a single enemy, i'd LOVE to get that thanks!) - He cannot handle diplomacy. Rational thoughts & tact are an issue. This whole topic is a great example. - He's generally hostile, rude and abrasive, a recent reference of this very thread being: "Dear dutch captains of DAS ,ARSE, and the rest of your pathetic friends" - He's got more haters than supporters. I know a politician or two who also have this problem, but Mr Pellasgos could Trump them all. - He does NOT have any sort of diplomatic authority over the Dutch Nation, is NOT a member of the Dutch Council, and should NOT be used as a national diplomat. Because that's when things go wrong as we've seen. PS. Again, I no longer play the game. However as an ex-Dutchie who had to put up with Pellasgo's insults, swearing, abuse, diplomatically fragile mind for an unhealthy amount of time, i'm more than happy to pop on and put him down like an unwanted kitten from time to time. They will thus be known as. THE PELLA-PUTDOWNS! You're Welcome.
  9. Could have used this being the 1st reply of this thread
  10. I can't handle this Just to summarise this thread: Pellsagos tries to bait people into expressing their dislike for him. About 30 people do so, most from his own nation He claims the moral victory What? Usually if 2 people have a problem with me, I take a step back and look in the mirror. But 30?! I'm dead.. :lol:xD
  11. Buddy, my remark wasn't a joke or intended insult. I've met many characters, and dealt with a online friend for example who has autism. It's not fair to judge someone by the same standards if they do indeed suffer from some sort of disability. I've spent enough time with Pellasgos to know his behaviour isn't what you'd class as normal, and it was intended as a completely serious question. If he doesn't wish to disclose that, it's perfectly acceptable. Perhaps my slightly annoyed opening of that post gave you the wrong perception, apologies. PS. To Pellsagos. Whilst you're insults are to be admired I suppose, I will just put out there: I've never convincing lost a fleet battle, and the first and ONLY 1st rate fleet battle i commanded....well..it went quite well As i recall that VERY same day, you ended up losing about 8 first rates without killing a single one. You can understand my perplexion at your definition of failures Safe sailing!
  12. I'd advise taking everything Pellasgos says with a colossal pinch of salt. One example. Both he and I lead battles a month or two back, he ends up losing about 8 1st rates. I sink 14 1st rates and lose only 4. He then proceeds by blaming me for HIM...well...sucking. I kid you not, i timed 35 minutes of him swearing, cussing, calling me a F**king noob, a C**T. ALL the swear words I ended up banning him from the public Teamspeak after several warnings to calm down. He then continued his rant for another 20 minutes or so in nation chat. Pellasgos, i dunno whether you suffer from some sort of mental disability, but it may be good for you to disclose this, just so we can understand your thinking sometimes. All the best buddy EDIT / PS - Don't expect any reasonable diplomacy with him, don't expect many rational thoughts, don't be suprised when internal affairs just explode, just vote for him.
  13. Looking at this, obviously there is a grudge or two between you, and i'd suggest what was exchanged in game chat would have something to do with that. They have their community and you have yours like you say. His problem is that your community is much larger, and will probably end up making off the table, teamspeak made alliances or non aggression pacts which he, and some others don't agree to. I'd suggest mending broken bridges because hate only breeds revolt, and we all saw how difficult the swedes were to talk to when their nation was expericing a civil war.
