  1. True, vodka rations may give a 30% penalty for precision, but vodka rations also gives a 30% bonus to crew/health. Men who are already pickled in vodka will not realize they are hurt (or even dead) and will continue fighting.
  2. Presumably if you still have a set of forged papers left (on either of the two existing servers) this would allow you to move to another nation. If you don't have any forged papers left (I have not played much recently so I think I have at least one set on each server) then maybe as part of this server merger the developers will grant one more set of forged papers to everyone so that they can roll to the nation of their choice.
  3. For how many decades did the Soviet (Red Army i believe) hockey team dominate Olympic hockey (IIRC, they (Soviets or "Unified Team) won it 8 out of 10 consecutive Olympic hockey championships between 1960-1992)? Those teams were essentially pro players, while other countries were forced to field amateur teams, yet people still watched.
  4. The lower BR is to force a team to vary its fleet makeup. i think the last thing that anyone wants to see is a 3 v 3 battle made up of a monochrome fleet. Such a BR limit forces a varied fleet makeup and also forces a team to adjust its tactics accordingly. You can't just sail broadside to broadside when you and your oppoennents have ships with varying capabilities. IIRC, The 3v3 tournament that happened last year had a BR limit of 450.
  5. From reading the Patrick O;Brian and Dewey Lambdin novels my impression of peace time was that frigate captains sat around at half pay. They were a nuisance to their wives....they went to the Admiralty office every few weeks looking for work, then they came back home and pestered their wives again. Their highlight was when war finally broke out again. Fun times I'm sure.
  6. I believe that when you F-11 it it gives the devs the exact coordinates where it happened. I suppose that it makes it easier for them to find and correct it that way.
  7. It happens. Just F-11 it. I also on occasion saw an AI ship permanently stuck outside a port, for several days. I F-11'd it and the next day the stuck ship was gone.
  8. Someone violated the Temporal Prime Directive by introducing future technology into a 19th century ship. ;-)
  9. This would certainly be useful but we must remember that this would all be on the "honors" system. There is no in game mechanic to enforce things like "NAP/Trade - ANY MILITARY SHIP IS ENGAGEABLE" or "ALLY - NO SHIPS ARE ENGAGEABLE in any waters". Uninformed players will do what they do, and some solo privateers choose not to observe the pleasantries of these arrangements since they are looking for PvP and may not care about RvR or diplomatic arrangements.
  10. I don't think that such a sub-forum on this Naval Action website is a necessity. This website is (to my knowledge) owned by Game Labs and its purpose is to support and facilitate the game development. I think that creating such a subforum would then (by implication) require it to be moderated. I'm not sure whether Game Labs would want to undertake such a responsibility. As some others have stated, there are already some 'back channels' which allow diplomatic contacts. Additionally, before the big Patch 10.0/server changes, I had requested (and gotten) Mustaparta (owner of a cu
  11. Addendum: They say hope springs eternal, so we are willing to keep trying. ;-)
  12. Regarding your last comment, In some ports the forts and towers cover little to none of the 3 circles (see Santa Marta--which I grant was uncontested) https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bx3OZcHt9VbNMTNvTXFIQ2RVUVk While at Port au Prince (which has very good coverage from the forts), we (GB) had like 4 captains who in the first 10 minutes of the battle refused (or ignored) the PB commander's orders and turned to a course that placed them OUTSIDE the fort coverage and right into the pirate blob (then they were then promptly sunk).
  13. Organizing training is easier said than done. Since the Patch 10 I have been in 2 nations (US and GB). We repeatedly attempted to organize training activities for those captains that needed help with things like manual sails. Responses ranged from clan leaders telling us that 'their members don't need that shit' to training sessions where no one showed up. We were called elitists when we offered to conduct training sessions OR we were called toxic for criticizing when we saw captains that could not stay out of irons in a 4th rate PB or do simple things like sail in lines, turn in succession
