  1. Here's the issue that I'm having with grinding, the crew levels are absolutely nonsensical and its boring as all hell. Every battle is the same damn thing, inb4 why not PVP? If I happen upon it, I'll fight and its a blast. It is once in a very blue moon however. There's just not a whole lot to grab me at this current stave, I mean hell, the most of us experienced guys have already been in first rates. Video games can have a grind, that's absolutely fine, but this grind will not be my second job. We need to make it less about the grind and I'm not exactly sure how to do that.
  2. OP, I agree the grind in its current state is very intensive. This game is fun but its not going to be my second job, I don't have a problem logging in every now and then and just sailing but 10k XP to get 250 crew is about the place where I stop caring about the game and forget it exists until the next cool update or there's a Port Battle. We just need the ability to gain XP other than shooting things and I believe they are working on it.
  3. It wouldn't be realistic and has no place in this game. Send the individual a private message and invite them to chat via Steam or Teamspeak.
  4. So what you're saying terp, is that you're upset about playing doing what also happens in reality? What a concept. Who knew that having every advantage was a good or bad thing depending on the side.
  5. Holy crap cry some more. You don't want to be in PVP fights that may or may not come up due to your positioning then go play on the PVE server. Seriously. Also calling the admins because I "offended" you is absolutely juvenile. People are going to disagree with you and people will call you mean names, it happens. I didn't curse at you and thus I broke no rules. Just because someone disagrees with you, JJ, it isn't like attacking someone because of their religion, sexuality, etc. No go QQ somewhere else.
  6. 1. The system works fine, if you are in a non combat vessel stay away from everything that moves. 2. The system to avoid battle could be absolutely exploitable. 3. You're in a PVP server, either deal with the fact that not everyone is your friend or move to the carebear servers.
  7. There's nothing wrong with being g supportive but the whole premise of him making that statement, Dear Moderator is that it is something that needs to be addressed. The admin replied with a very snarky rebuttal and I believe that the individual made an appropriate come back. You pay respect to those who deserve it and earn it, not just walk in and demand it. This is one of the reasons I am hesitant to recommend this game to anyone I meet, this community is poison and they lose their minds when anyone speaks out against it. We need more ships before this hits EA. That's a fact, but not many ships whatsoever. The vessels being tested would be a very pleasant addition. I stopped playing ages ago because the vessels got boring and it was too repetetive. I paid 40 bucks to play though so I think it might have been a good investment.
  8. I agree as well, as a naval captain you wouldn't sit back and be like "Oh my friend is in danger, however I can't do anything because it's an even fight!" You know what you call people that fight fair? We call them the deceased.
  9. It's not through BR, its not through changing the ships themselves. It's give more back to the players who sail small ships in combat. These are the ones who will scrabble to have a name for themselves as 3rd and 1st raters already have the attention from the "admiralty". This lets them get random bonuses in game, maybe you sink a large vessel in a Privateer. Let's say a Surprise, the admirals are going to be astonished that you did that and you have a random chance to earn a good redeemable as a reward, maybe bonus XP or gold even. -Iron Kraken
  10. Super cookie literally is just copying my idea as I typed earlier. Nice plagiarism you have going on there.
  11. The problem here is that almost everyone is being way too rigid with...everything. The prized point of this game is that I can crew and use whatever vessel I want! You're telling me that the admiralty needs to appoint me the vessels that I have to sail without any input or volunteering on my behalf? Heck no. That's crazy. At some point I feel as though we need to be realistic, we aren't helping with making a game for 200 people. We need to look at the broader picture and address it as such. All I usually see if people who have hundreds of hours and so much time on their hands that it's easy for them. I know how to solve this issue of "too many big ships". It's not through BR, its not through changing the ships themselves. It's give more back to the players who sail small ships in combat. These are the ones who will scrabble to have a name for themselves as 3rd and 1st raters already have the attention from the "admiralty". This lets them get random bonuses in game, maybe you sink a large vessel in a Privateer.

  12. Yeah this whole "you need X" to progress is nonsense. One of the BIGGEST selling points to my friends when Steam release happens is that there's no ridid progression. It's straightforward based on damage. Now I have to sail ships I hate vehemently to do anything, I play and test different features where I can but this is too much. I am an adult that cannot donate hundreds of hours just to do anything. This needs adjusting. Straightforward.
  13. Hey everyone, I was curious if we are going to have a "dump" of new vessels or if they were going to be slowly be released. I'm aware that several vessels models are finished (looking at you Niagara). So does anyone know if they will be released before we hit Early Access on Steam?
  14. I don't think that's true Admin. I've removed all but 35% of a snows sails on game and he had no issues tacking and he kept a steady pace with me.
