  1. That could really piss people off, though. The people who keep getting set on fire by the rockets, I mean. I'm reminded of artillery in WoT, only with these you'd have the extra torment of seeing all those rockets coming for you.
  2. Which country built the Hercules? I've looked at the Wikipedia page for "Hercules (ship)", and the only ships listed there that fit the bill are a French 38-gunner from the mid-1600s and an Argentinian "frigate that served as flagship of the second Argentine squadron during the Independence War". I'm assuming this is the Argentinian one? Was she originally a Spanish ship, then?
  3. I forgot about that picture. Seeing it again, though... wow.
  4. This. Also, don't forget Diana (1792, Spanish 32-gun frigate). Also, the Patch 23 Announcement thread revealed the Hercules frigate as well. There was a xebec seen in the background of a WIP screenshot that the devs posted ages ago, but AFAIK we haven't heard much, if anything, about it since then.
  5. Well, on second thought, buying a 3rd rate for real money would be easier than trying to find a crafted one for sale, so maybe a premium 3rd rate wouldn't be so bad.
  6. A newspaper that reviews video games? Wow, that's news to me.
  7. There's an IG-88 droid from Star Wars in there, too, if you look closely.
  8. What the hell is that? I mean, don't get me wrong, I've warmed up to Pirates of the Caribbean enough that I can accept some fantasy ship designs with skeletons and whatnot, but that... Well, no disrespect to the guy who made it, but it's not my cup of tea, let me put it that way.
  9. Well, you can suggest it in the next poll, then.
  10. Thanks for the update. However, I'm not sure I like this part: I can understand why you don't want players to be able to identify their enemies (it adds to the realism and uncertainty), but suppose you run into someone you know who plays for another nation? Now you won't be able to recognize your friends, either.
  11. I agree, but I also think that there seem to be a lot of nationalistic people in this game's community, and those people could cause drama if their nations were removed. For instance, imagine how much the Russian players would bitch and moan if Russia were removed from the game.
  12. Any news on some of the ships in development? How are the Christian VII and Diana coming along? Just curious. It'd be cool to see screenshots of them, even if they're not finished yet.
  13. You're a few months too late, dude.
  14. I must be becoming emotionally dead. The ship I voted for, and believed long overdue for implementation into the game, the Temeraire, made it after all, despite getting clobbered in the polls. What's more, I've long considered 3rd rates to be one of the most under-represented rates in the game, and now we have not one, but three new 3rd rates in development. And yet all I made was one little post the other day. Here, here's a proper response: Pop that champagne!
  15. Right, I've updated the OP to include the results of the 2017 poll, despite almost effing the whole thing up somehow. That could've been bad, lol.
  16. Wow! Three ships got chosen after all. That's really great.
  17. Apologies if this is a stupid question, but why do we need another superfrigate? We have a number of heavy frigates already...
  18. Wilhelmina? The Wilhelmina has 6 votes lol. Even third place (the Temeraire) has 52...
  19. I see the Temeraire's basically doomed at this point. Dammit.
  20. If the devs have said a ship's in development, I have no reason to doubt that it'll (eventually) be added to the game. However, it has generally taken them ages to add each ship. The ships themselves take time to make and implement into the game, and there have been a lot of other aspects of the game that have also required the devs' attention as well. I don't know the exact amount of time that most ships spend in development, but from what I've seen, over a year between a ship's announcement and its implementation into the game doesn't sound out of the ordinary.
  21. Maybe people figure the Temeraire's bound to be added by the devs eventually, so their votes are better spent on getting a less well-known ship into the game.
  22. *Arvenski breaks out his "List of ships ingame" thread* Counting 5th and 6th rates, there are 20 frigates in the game now. We know the Diana's in development, and there's still that Xebec and Kepler from ages ago that may or may not get ingame someday. Compare that to just two 3rd rates, one of which is a generic, less-decorated version of the other. The Bucentuare and Pavel are similar enough to 3rd rates that we may as well count them, too, just for the heck of it, but that's still only 4 ships. Two years ago, we heard that there were two more 3rd rates and two more 2nd rates in development, but we've heard nothing about them since then that I'm aware of. In other words, three new 3rd rates in development wouldn't hurt anything. Even if you compare 3rd rates to just 6th rates or just 5th rates, 3rd rates are pretty damn underrepresented by comparison. *LeBoiteux shoots Arvenski* ----------------------- @George Washington: Explain.
  23. Bloody hell. Look at Montanes go. (Sorry, couldn't get get the computer to type the tilde.) Wreker, too. Looks like the Temeraire's in trouble already...
