  1. I would believe the admins here are promoting the use of all ships for fighting, including the traders. The original traders in this game were either lightly armed or unarmed until you reached Le Gros venture, now they are well armed. Historically East Indiamen were used for national support. I cannot remember as this time under which king (Louis XIV or XV) but using indiamen to fight English warships to take control of some India Ports is a classic example of pressing merchants into fight for the crown. They do have books for sailing, fighting and personnel.Maybe a traders section would
  2. What update version should we be on as of August 11, 2019? Is version 1.6.38 current??
  3. It has been a few days since I logged in. An update is needed but has no peers to complete this update and the game will not start without it. Is there a work around to fix this?? Thanks
  4. You already have that with 3rd rate, bellona, victory etc.....................
  5. Check your firewall and see if the application is blocked. The VPN will allow you to pass through the firewall, if this is the only way to reach the forum. The VPN will allow you to tunnel through local settings. Worth taking a look at.....
  6. LOL, we all get a 4 day vacation from being at sea and all y'all going nuts..............................................
  7. It would be great to have the 7 years war as well. Any thought to having famous battles that can be recreated to see how you could change the outcome, a Wooden ships kind of thing??
  8. Remember a number of ships ferrying soldiers these SOL ships were "en flute", i.e. removing most of their cannons and serving as transport ships. 9 Ships of the Line have been know to ferry 3,650 soldiers across the Atlantic to Quebec which equals about 405 persons being transported per ship. The convoy would have been escorted by four additional, fully armed SOLs. So, 300 people on a brig would be overloaded. IMHO
  9. When can we be able to get a copy?
  10. As long as it takes to do so. If you had read the message from the developers PvP wipes first, followed by some testing prior to release. Take a breath please.
  11. Absolutely good to see. Thank you for the knowledge update!!
  12. So where in the message it mentions "Server Maintenance" 17th - 19th????
  13. We will never have that kind of information, it will happen when it happens. It has always been this way. Grab a beer and watch re-runs of Combat on YouTube until then.
  14. Yes, this is a launch. Another wipe after the Launch? Who really knows, but I think not. I do see the possibility of future resets of conquest areas to keep it playable on the PvP server. Not necessary for the PvE server as all ports are fixed. I have quit worrying over a wipe or not. Reading all the different opinions , which has included passionate verbal barrages, only summed up to creating a new approach to working the game. It is a good thing its a sandbox where you can approach it from a various directions. Having over 1800 hours in the game, top ranked in XP and can craft anything
  15. Good to see you again, Taranis. I was thinking a bit more on this and I can see resets in the future when in the PvP world conquests gets lopsided (as it has in the past) but as a full wipe I believe that can be a major error if they go down that path. so I do not see that as fix all/end all operation. Schedule resets would be acceptable as to be allowed time to gather supplies and ships, return to capitals and prepare for another rage on the Caribbean. We learned a long time ago that no matter what we think about the survival of the game or player base to keep the game going, the Dev's d
  16. I admit it doesn’t feel good having yet again to go through another wipe and this time lose everything. Four (4) years, 1800+ hours logged, three wipes make it hard to swallow. I can still retain my experiences and knowledge on the PvE and will continue to enjoy this game there. The PvP side, I don’t know if I am willing to put through the effort to ever go back to that server. It has been infrequent since the major ganking days a couple of years ago and from this point forward having to start at 0 in the PvP world just doesn’t have any appeal to participate. I am not a Dev and hav
  17. Personally, I think it's time to lock this discussion...............................................
  18. Complete the Training and you will awarded the ability to crew and command 5th rate ships - which covers the DLC ships.
  19. OMG, here we go again. I thought the riff between PvP and PvE was long gone. It saddens me to see it rear it's ugly head again.
  20. Okay, I have stated an opinion. I have been shown post that was there concerning the wipe et al. So here is the question for the Dev's... We have been playing this game for 4+ years, all of the previous wipes have been for the mechanic and play-ability of the game and resets were for fresh starts to test different patches to make the game as fair as possible and to enhance the fighting/crafting and trading aspects.New people kept coming into the game (and still do) and will continue to do after the release of the game. So it makes no sense at all to completely wipe a game for new people t
  21. Thank you for providing the post I had not seen to prove it why I am reading what I am reading concerning the promises. I can fully understand this more clearly. I wish more would not have assumed everyone knows the history of the statements. Again, I thank you for taking the time to provide this information. BTW, I'm barefoot, LOL
