    Is this an unacceptable exploit?

    oh wow - isn't this the reason they removed pirate outlaw battles? (ironically at least in a pirate outlaw battle you could still join and see who was in it, what ships they were sailing etc - with this method the entire fleet goes invis when the battle closes with defenders having no idea of numbers/BR) @admin - to be consistent, please either make it so that one nation cannot tag another nation to prevent this same abuse that pirate outlaw battles were removed for, or bring back pirate outlaw battles ty (yeah i know it sounds ridiculous, however so was the pathetic excuse for removing pirate outlaw battles)

    there were no combat mark rewards in outlaw battles just so that they couldn't be exploited - but you get rewards from sinking somebody else's alt in another nation - another prime example of misinformation also admin categorically stated that outlaw battles will never be looked at again (about 10-14 days ago) if you have info more recent since then with admin stating that hey will be back, would love to see the link

    make it so that after waiting 6 weeks, Jon Snow and company can't sail downwind for 30 minutes and get a 'win

    yeah - i didn't twig to ... /s my bad and therefore my apologies i'm butthurt over the way things are (in my personal opinion) getting worse rather than better for folks who like sandbox mmos after the removal of outlaw battles for totally fake reasons (the tagging mechanics of other nation alts where you can hide in invisibility an entire fleet for 90 minutes is WAY worse than outlaw battles where at least you can still jump in and asses the opposition), and now the nerfing of the pirate lgv, it's like an online game of hungry hungry hippo now they nerf the pirate LGV after a week, whilst all the carebears are whizzing around on the ocean at 15 knots for months??? am done

    rofl - stupider words i have not seen uttered in these forums - congratulations on being an idiot extraordinaire heaven forbid that somebody who has 150 PvP marks is actually somebody who enjoys and is skilled at PvP on a PvP server truly, the lunatics are starting to run the asylum

    the irony being that with outlaw battles, the pirate faction was the only faction that was true sandbox what we have now is more like most theme park RvR mmo's, and it seems that most want that am not going to argue - it's your game and you have the big picture and every right to make your changes as you see fit will spend more time in an actual sandbox mmo and less time here ty

    i'm sorry mate, but running as a zerg while you have toxic jerks in your nation chat that you can't sink for being stupid isn't very attactive to me personally we got rid of some idiots from pirate nation and for the first time in months and months pirate nation chat isn't a daily toxic fest because folks knew if they cried, they died as for running hard mode - try being a pirate who comes to bermuda in a 1-3 man group and sinks your ships - THAT is fun - though you rueds like to call us cowards for doing it

    then let's list them and come up with fixes for them or simply don't allow new accounts to roll pirtate since it is hard mode i've been an avid NA supporter for a couple of years, logging in excess of 4,000 playing hours, have stuck through thick or thin, but this one has me just faceplaming or alternatively - create the pirate nation nation in nassau that the devs have mentioned on occasion, and create the OUTLAW faction that they have hinted at also

    actually we should 'waste' time on this some more outlaw battles are the KEY element for going pirate without it you have neutered the main reason many play/stay in the pirate nation why would you not make a post explaining specifically what you see the main exploits as being, and then asking for feedback, especially from pirates, for fixing it main exploit that i saw was other nations rolling pirate alts, tagging a pirate(s), and then their nation clan buddies rolling in most pirates were fine with that, and those that weren't shouldn't be playing pirate anyhows if you couldn't fix a work around how about making it that pirates can still attack pirates but the outlaw battle mechanics are simply changed to same timer as normal battle entry tiumer, and call one side "pirate (attacker)" and the other side "pirate (defender)" or make it that only pirates can join outlaw battles - both relatively easy fixes you're welcome
  11. agreed it's a matter of balance with flavour is my thought as it stands, basically every faction/nation is a cookie cutter replica of every other one personally i would have liked it if ONLY british nationals could use a brtish rig refit, or british gunners, french nationals using french rig refit and french gunners etc " however due to the delicate snowflake nature of gamers in general (not just in this game), the incessant whining of 'they have something we don't, it's not fair', rather than figuring out how to use what they have to their best advantage against others disadvantages makes this sadly (for me) not somethiung that is practical for the devs to implement and try and blanace in terms of time and dev resources
  12. historically i don't recall there being more than one constitution - a total of 6 were built in that class you might have missed my previous comments in this thread where i'm fine with pirate/outlaw faction not being able to sail anything larger than a 3rd or 4th rate
  13. commented on 3 posts above yours:
  14. personally i'm fine with pirates not being able to sail anything larger than a 3rd or 4th rate perhaps that's something they m,ight do when they create a splinter group of pirates as the Outlaw faction?
