  1. It has been 4 days, ANYTHING? @Ink I see you respond to these posts rapidly, at least in the past, am I to take this to mean just suck it up and deal with it?
  2. It has been 48 hours, an answer, acknowledgement, something? I'm only bumping this to prevent it from dropping off the first page.
  3. Several people including me were doing a hostility mission for Tulum. After being kicked out the first time my ship was sitting in OW after server was back up fully repaired, no hostility was generated. I entered a hostility mission again and this time in the heat of the battle I lost control of my ship and the game kicked me out again as the server was shut down AGAIN. By this point I had to go to doctor's appointments. I just returned home and logged back into game, in port, no ship, with a kind letter from the admiralty. I had a WO/WO Wasa, fully gunned with longs and carros, cartegena caulking, british refit, and british gunners. It was very cramped but to be honest blue 3 slot. Built by me in Truxillo with Hull4 Crew4 Gunnery4. Thank you in advance.
  4. This information would be good to advertise, might give pause to the roving gangs of trincs that tag trader brigs over and over to sink their escaped fleet ships ad absurdum.
  5. Chasers on my beloved Essex? Oh what a dream, completely historically accurate. Been asking for almost 4 years... Also been asking for lighthouses.
  6. The only thing I can think of is to mouse click on the screen, or hit enter again. This is what I do to toggle from chat to control.
  7. Application for BF clan is still pending, this is his training.
  8. My fleet was 2 trade brigs loaded with cargo, my main a trade snow armed with repairs and passengers. Tagged by a guy in a Prince. After 45 minutes I had the guy down to 1 bubble armour an both sides and 41 crew. Sadly he popped a sail repair and escaped after some good natured banter. We both GG and o7. After I docked up to deliver 2 sets of passengers and 2 sets of cargo for 320K reales and 2K dubloons, and went on my way... 30 minutes later I was tagged by a trinc, and 2 more jumped in, with each going after separate boat. Seriously 🤔
  9. There was an active thread just a few days ago with people being linked, no dev or mod ever commented. I am guessing "certain people" achieved max craft rank off rum and the feature magically became a bug and was turned off. Only way to increase craft xp is through ships ATM, hope it gets fixed but repeated history makes me pessimistic.
  10. It is really a shame that people can't play the game without resorting to underhanded exploiting behaviour to use alts for the sole intention of ruining the game for others.
  11. Baltic, thought you were a mod for some reason, glad you weighed in. Angus, you are right, everything that does not come out of shipyard yields -0- xp, which is utter crap.
  12. *BUMP* @Ink @admin @balticsailor @Powderhorn This PROBLEM needs to be addressed on behalf of every player without a bloody shipyard currently being punished with no way to have more than 1000 labour hours. Reduced craft XP based on what is crafted, or some other mechanic but no -0- xp unless you build a ship.
  13. I have a clanmate who built a workshop to craft mods and repairs, as well as forests. He agreed and was like 80 points from craft level 2. Now he is stuck forever in level 1 limbo unless he builds a shipyard? COME ON DEVS, this is just spiteful.
  14. Its just a birthday mate. The only thing that matters is the play the game and have fun. If you were Alpha pre Steam EA you still have your yacht.
  15. Merril, Because of time invested versus past assurances by developers. A large number of people stuck around believing the developers statements they would retain their hard earned XP, rank, ship slot XP and learned books. Then some were taken away several months ago, and the rest were taken last week. I personally was fine starting over rank and XP, losing ship slot XP and book knowledge stung a bit more, given that clanmates and I have gone to great lengths to obtain books, spending countless hours doing so only to have it wiped away. In the end we start over, that's the way it is, people group up and work together. Real life? ok, here is an analogy for you. You work a full time job for several years with the assurances you keep your benefits, pension and nice office that you have earned. Then you and everyone else is back in tiny cubicles (basic cutters)... "Ok, time to regrind back into my old office" Then it is announced benefits (ship slot XP) are cancelled and your pension amount (learned book knowledge) is reset and you start over at -0- At this point IRL bad press, protests, and ultimately, legal action takes place ie: class action lawsuits. This isn't real life, but for many that are retired or disabled this IS a big part of their life. The last total wipe happened before book knowledge grind, ship slot grind, 1 dura ships etc, This wipe hurts a lot more for a large amount of players. THESE ARE THE REASONS PEOPLE ARE ANGRY, STOP ATTACKING THEM FOR THIS, THEY ARE LEGITIMATE COMPLAINTS. This sort of behaviour would have serious repercussions IRL, similar in spirit to the repercussions the developers are experiencing. I love this game, and want it to flourish, but the repeated decisions based on "hardcore badasses" and "trusted friends" input have taken this game far from the unfinished diamond in the rough it once was, to an unfinished "pander to the few at the expense of the many" not ready for prime time mess.
  16. Just give two impossible nations a capital in the gulf and one down south of Guayguayare, or in other areas. Then remove ability to run hostility out of freetowns. Frontlines will never work as intended because there are too many nations, and too many ways to bypass frontlines.
  17. THE MONEY TO CREATE A CLAN CAN BE MADE IN A BLOODY HOUR BY A FEW PEOPLE WITH DELIVERY MISSIONS! OK, I get it, people don't want to lose their BETA clan name and so we are left with 1000s of defunct names that are unavailable to use at the official start of the game. But I beg you, MAKE THE LIST ALPHABETICAL ORDER. Playing scavenger hunt for 20 minutes to add a clan to friendly list is beyond ridiculous and aggravating.
  18. For the love of all sanity, the Clan list MUST BE WIPED, GB has a clan list with so many dead clans it is ponderous, the list is not even alphabetically sorted, GB can't be the only nation with is problem. Please don't leave us with this mess to continue to trudge through, make a character and test for yourself the nightmare that is the clan list. Thank you
  19. Make sure the passengers are on your boat! Nothing worse than taking mission, switching boats and making that sail only to realise the patients are still sitting in another boat back where you started.
  20. Best way to bring up bigger ships, I opened the last few slots of Christian, 3rd rate and new connie doing the same. Angling and repairs.
  21. As much as I would hope is not the case, based on past issues the deciding factor may well rest with what the "trusted friends" think. Just waiting to see.
  22. I run around in a pandora sometimes and quite like it. I don't put the deck guns on and aiming is fine. It has it's drawbacks but an excellent trader capper.

    Soooo... (Que carnival music) Nation A flips a county capital (n) of nation X in one part of the map. ~meanwhile~ Nation B (allied with nation A) flips another county capital (o) of nation X in another part of the map a short time after A flipped Xn. Then nation X has to choose what port to fully defend, and they choose (o). Nation A ~should~ be able to insta take port Xn so they can then teleport over and help screen their allies into to Xo. thereby If A=20, B=20 and X=30 Xn=1 Xo=29 A>Xn so instant win for A Then can be A+B>Xo YOU ARE MAKING A THREAD ASKING FOR DEVS TO CHANGE PORT BATTLE MECHANICS TO FURTHER ENABLE MULTIFLIPS BY THE TWO STONGEST RVR FLEETS IN THAT TIME ZONE (WHICH ARE ALLIES). The thread title is an ironic joke, you are not asking for mercy, you are asking for assistance to be able to make multiflips easier. That has to be a hard NO.
