  1. I am sure if it had been possible for Henry to kill he would of, clearly he attempted to engage or gain a favourable position to attack realised he was out matched and not against a noob and left battle....seems legit right... Can't remember I think I recall Henry being happy as he was sailing from navasse screening dissapointed and not getting a fight a bit bored when out the blue on the horizon...imagine his joy when he accidentally runs into a lone first rate...
  2. @jodgi detailed answer How many wars have been lost due to supply line issues/logistics..unable to replace losses fast enough to justify the continued onslaught, well that use to be a thing in naval action DLC removes at least a portion of that. And I think that's pretty obvious to anyone who thinks about it..
  3. So I'm not in game that much these days but I've been playing consistently since Jan 2016 I think it was just as open world was made a thing, I must say @HachiRoku is correct players are buying DLC ships as a work around for the cost in reals and most importantly time involved in crafting ships the old fashioned way. Frankly I find it very very unrewarding sinking a ship I know the player can magic back onto server worst case 24 hours I die involves 3 hours of my life sailing stuff from A to B...And gud knows what else... the playerbase feels like the devs are building a craft/ grind wall either side of you and leading you to the convienance of DLC. Only DLC I've paid for is building slots.. A pal gifted me herc DLC and as much as I loved her if I'm honest owning redeeming and sailing it is CHEATING (game mechanics)... I have no alts and as much as I hated all the sailing required to be able to store resources so I could replace losses fairly easily it was a part of the game and made winning or losing actually have meaning...now with all DLC hanging around it is like going to arcades throwing in a coin win or lose means nothing next arcade game please..therefore ruining the meaning of naval action purpose..... So yeah thanks .....having to play silent hunter 5 so I can still have my sea wallpaper background on monitor...
  4. 2- 3 min join timer is best ROE we can have, have had but who wants sensible sane ideas these days.. in fact I've no idea why I'm wasting my time to write this may as well suggest it to me 18 month old son for the use it will do....
  5. So I understand you are trying to make a point but honestly this is more sarcastic,rude and troll like then pit's post about speed victory in fact I would say pit's post is much more informative and yet he and others remain banned some with no warnings simply for asking clarification on wandering forests which has now been sorta clarified. Though some players don't like the new resource idea I am sure there intention much like admins here was to be critical and prove a point...
  6. It happened to me I don't know how much of a setup it was but the lgv I tagged was only ever interested in chaining my sails and running to where his endy joined 5-10 mins later.. And tbh it was easy to setup and if I wanted to be a arse I could easily do myself with a clan member and just rinse and repeat all day. I hunt mostly solo and the 20 min join timer is just too long too extreme again... I could afk sail for 20 mins before engaging anything but probably won't find anything there. I know there is pz 1v1 thing but A: you got to get there in 1 piece.. B:I like the ow chase, no artificial ring of death. Etc. Solo PvP was hard now it verges on suicidal... Ganking just got easier....
  7. Because while a gb player has to sail a trader in enemy waters(high risk getting sunk) to discover rare woods, player who has a alt in nation can sail around safely discover rare woods then act on info using his main account
  8. All I'm saying is I'm playing other games more.....because too many players and clan members have been banned for criticism I won't go into too much detail.. Damage model, carronades=broken too extreme... Battles over to fast... 20min join timer already fallen trap to lgv near Freeport chains my sails then runs then after 5 min his pal joins in endy I was in trinc... BR is not right for all ships...... Indef is king of 5th rate loadout is crazy (42pnd carros) compared to any other 5th rate can probably take on 4th rates....if heavier build.. Not a fan of new rvr idea of wandering forests, magic bean forests, whatever newly discovered forests whatever it is will once again give advantage to players with alts, or just result in more time afk in traders I don't find that fun..
  9. It's ok I'm sure players with alts in foreign nations will find them quicker then most. Will people then RVR or just park there and if possible farm the wood and transport to other character...obviously clan control limits this to a degree..i guess
  10. I sail solo 90% of the time and it can be very frustrating and their are times when I have bad or very bad weeks or days the other week I lost 3 maybe 4 ships in 1 week and it made me very angry so I crafted some less expensive ships and went back to basics as I call it and Ive had a couple of ok weeks since then. I'm not saying it's easy to profit from solo pvp exclusively so I would recommend mixing your gameplay so you only solo pvp 2 days and other 2 days do some boring but essential pve for reals doubloons etc. I always try to evaluate my losses and say hey I sunk X amount of ships before I lost her so it's ok. Or at least i learnt dont do xyz again... To make a mistake is normal to repeat those mistakes makes you food...
  11. Been reported before but during a boarding all battle screen text I.e. sector fire & sails etc became unreadable in no recognisable language. I did f11 in game but forgot to screenshot. Also when exiting boarding I forgot to put crew back onto sailing etc for a moment because it wasn't very clear if active or not highlight should be brighter different colour...
  12. So last night i attacked a buc in my hercules we had some foreplay and i knew it was a pointless fault player was countering my moves i lost some rig (alot) was concerned of masts so turned upwind and disengaged. So to player i said sorry i had to try his reply i applaud such efforts GG.... Under admin new rules i could of got a gank squad sorry even br fight to join me or i get penalised for leaving or i dont tag at all and that leads to more meaningful pvp....that makes sense... Sometimes i think i should just leave the forums and only play the game in front of me....
