  1. Sure but 10x the fun, I Solo/small group PVP'ed in my snow, then in my surprise, then trinco up to connie. I don't even want a 1st rate. 2-3 guys in privateer is a deadly pvp group and it's so much more fun than sitting in a line battle with a rated ship. People are way to focused on ''Omg I -Need- the biggest ship!'' And they don't bother trying to find ways to enjoy every rate of ships in the game. If you're the kind that absolutely need a first rate and you need it yesterday, sure it'll be grindy. But it's definitely a choice, it's not forced up on you.
  2. We assaulted the three ports with about 90 people and tagged most defenders on outside battles, this was not a planned port flip but a crushing tactical victory from the British side.
  3. This thread isn't about pirate green on green, it's about blatant griefing, same way it's been done and condemned previously. I say add them to the list of people awaiting sentencing. Admins and Devs of this game will just be standing by while the game is being run into the ground if these type of actions are not condemned officialy.
  4. NA forums in a nutshell: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/12097-duel-at-blood-creek/#entry216134
  5. 1) The only way it can be 100% my fault is if i'd be the only poster in the thread, which I am not. So others share the blame. 2) Where did I waste anyone's time? Sorry I made you click on a thread and read it. 3) Too many people take this way to seriously. 2 cutters capturing a trinco might not be friendly but it certainly is funny. You'd laugh if you captured me in a trinco with 2 cutters. 4) I might have learned a lesson that these forums can't handle a bit of fun, but you should look at yourself and try to learn some too, this is a game and people take everything on here way to
  6. Well it's not everyday that 2 cutters kill a trincomalee, I wanted to show that despite what a lot of people think, the trinco isn't an invicible machine of doom.
  7. Well This was supposed to be a friendly/funny post for the sake of game propaganda, and just to show how people underestimate cutters, but all you forum people (On every side) can't help but take your dicks out and wave them. Please for the sake of the game, be less toxic.
  8. Courageous British captains engage French ship and take it as a prize. Combined force of 2 cutters armed with 4 pounders, along with an unarmed cutter engage French Trincomalee frigate and take it as a prize. Courageous unarmed cutter sinks, all british sailors recovered from the sea unharmed. Did the French bite off more than they can chew by declaring war?
  9. Rage boarding is too powerful, Masts are too weak.
  10. 1) There are multiple narratives to that story, RAE broke their treaty with SLRN and attack south cuba while we were busy with the pirates at Les Gonaives. I cannot speak for other clan's situations. 2) Nations should accept that their port amount should be relative to their fraction of the playerbase (Reasonable demands would dictate that if you have 10% of the playerbase, then you should be able to hold 10% of the ports, demanding more under threat of war is excessive) 3) Again, the current map situation doesn't reflect the situation when we were allied, right now we are not and that's wha
  11. Having a strong startup is actually a huge disadvantage, as you cannot set a timer on ports you start with. This is one of the reason of spain's downfall.
  12. The main issue is that spain starts with an extremely large amount of ports and they expected to keep them, or to keep ports based on history. If they have 10% of the playerbase, they only deserve 10% of the ports, and they are not entitled to any one more. Britain conquered a lot of US ports with intentions to flip them back to Spain, but spain launched a suprise attack on Britain before the final agreements of which and when they would be ceded. Surely after they told us to f*** off and attacked us you didn't expect us to continue with the motion of ceding ports. They did a similar thing wi
  13. Can the original post be either updated or unpinned? It's very outdated and will lead to players attacking allies or their clans etc.
  14. Most if not all or the British captains want spain to be a nation like when we were allied with them, but their actions (or the actions or some clans in their nation) made it so that if we let them be they'd backstab us, with the balance of power at the time, destroying most of their nation was a far easier task for us than dealing with their hilarious demands. They seized the opportunity to attack us and broke diplomacy when the pirates started making a push in Haiti along with the Danes, now they are reaping what they sowed. We don't think we have a ''right'' to conquer smaller nations,
  15. I agree with this, furthermore i think at any time, the flag carrier should be able to right click the flag and downgrade it, for example, you bought a private flag and you want to make it public, but not the other way around.

    It's a sign

    5/7, proper dank meme!
  17. I'm an admiral in the SLRN tyvm.
  18. lol Freddy hit a gold mine with those 2x assits!
  19. 3rds are free... Definitely a Pyrrhic victory for the Brits, well fought from the pirates.
  20. Tracing the gold trail should be a trivial task for the devs, and I hope actions are taken to remedy the issue. Furthermore, a post should be made to suggest a solution to prevent this exploit. Player's nature is to exploit the game's faults. As bad taste as some exploits are, It's good that they are found out in early access.
  21. I'm not sure you understand what i'm talking about here. Often when you're boarding someone it will pull both ships alongside each other, and then as soon as the screen pops up one of the two ships drifts slowly away as if it's been cut off of the other, and the boarding gets auto-interrupted because of the distance. There is no skill or decision process involved. I'm not saying the pulling gets interrupted (that's fine) but the actual boarding combat. Either making it so pulling lasts until both ship reach 0 knots, or that the pulling keeps pulling until boarding is over. Graples are NOT cu
  22. You don't require that much clan backing to craft effectively. A player I know if crafting SOLs, and he got there on his own with little backing from other players. Why is the line drawn at 3rd rates? Can someone explain that? Why not let everyone capture victories then? Why could we capture pavels before but it got removed, but removing 3rds would be favoring the elitists? Right now port battles are a joke, any fleet can field 25 captured third rates and they don't give a shit about losing them.
