  1. Can log into PVP but failing repeatedly on PVE server. It attempts to log in and fails with a message "Error Login queue request failed" Was fine after maintenance last night but is consistently failing now.
  2. My next gold mission box had total rubbish and not much of that so I presume you are correct.
  3. Yes did an F11 report immediately but this seems to be happening a fair bit from what other captains are stating, if it indeed does stack and I didn't believe it did then I must have got truly lousy chests as I didn't have any of the things you typically get in a gold chest.
  4. I just completed a mission (sink 11 rank 3 ships I believe) and went to St Nic to redeem the mission. The mission and gold chests redeemed successfully but when I opened the mission chest I got nothing. Perturbed I opened the gold chest and once again nothing. I could detect no change in my warehouse contents and wouldn't expect the new chest contents to stack. Do they stack as soon as you open a chest? There doesn't seem to be a way to check what you got so I am left wondering and so far as I can tell got nothing. Speaking to another clan member of my clan and he reported that he also had two empty gold chests today, his name in game is Alexander1. This is all on the PVE server.

    Vanishing ship

    The battle was a foregone conclusion and my ship nowhere near it. It should be replaced as there is nothing saying this will happen.

    Vanishing ship

    I recently entered a battle to speak to another player who dived onto a ship I was about to attack on the PVE server. I entered the battle with my Christain and the other player was a long way away also in a Christain in the process of sinking the Indefatigable which I had originally targetted. I sent him a message regarding what he did and left. I was miles from the battle when I did so but when I next entered battle I found that my fleeted gold constitution was missing. I asked in chat if anyone had had a ship vanish like this and described the circumstances. I was then informed that there is an undocumented feature which means that if you don't retreat a fleeted ship then it vanishes when you leave. There was no warning that this would happen and myself and my fleet constitution were miles from the actual combat. I wouldn't normally worry about this but since it was a gold 5/5 Connie with an agility bonus and my only gold ship I am understandably more perturbed. I would like to have it returned as there should be some kind of warning about this. I understand that if you are engaged that retreating might make some sense but I was far from engaged and would have expected that my fleet would have simply followed me out. It was fully kitted out but in this case, I would be happy to just get the ship back. I feel that a warning should happen if someone does leave without retreating fleet ships if this vanishing ship syndrome is to continue or that ships which have not engaged or are nowhere near the combat should automatically retreat if the main does. Further, my son has just joined me on the PVE server (we were previously on the PVP but as a trader shipbuilder it isn't much fun anymore) and I notice he actually has a guide available. You might want to make that available to older players as I have never seen anything like that. My PVE account is Pierre Andre de Suffren and I would very much appreciate your help in this matter.
  7. I would like to see the following: 1. The compass in the map selectable to default on or off. Presently its defaulted off and can't think of any time I want it off. 2. Books applied to ships remaining with the ships when they are in the fleet. If you must they could be disabled when fleeted but presently I have to reapply them every time I take a ship out of the fleet. 3. Interiors modelled on ships, this would be very atmospheric. This is done on the Connie to a limited extent but some ships are very poor on interior detail. In particular, the 1st rates which don't even have fully modelled cannons. This could be selected on or off for those with poor performance. 4. The ability to move around the deck, I know the home key allows you to simulate this to some extent but makes no allowance for pitch and roll. Commanding from the deck would make a nice challenge. This could be selected on or off for those with poor performance. 5. Better storms with the possibility of ship damage. 6. More crew and marines in battle and out. This once again could be turned on or off it a player experienced a performance impact. 7. The ability to select different ships of the same type, for instance, I would love the L'Orient name with the appropriate stern and bow figure. I would be happy to get this a DLC that I could apply any time I made an Ocean-class ship. Since the ship model, handling exists already this wouldn't require a huge amount of work I would think to implement. 8. Better zoom on the map with clearer indication around islands of where the port facilities are. 9. Open world crew even if they were stationary would be nice. 10. Better modelled towns which are at a better scale. There is some variation now but not much. 11. Points of interest around the islands which would be recognisable. 12, Crafting levels above where they sit now which would give some better chance of gaining purple of gold ships.
  8. Wondering if its possible to join the BETA for this?
  9. While not strictly a naval flag, would love for a variant of this to be able to be flown for the British.
  10. I am just starting to get back into the game from the merge from global. I am finding dock space a big problem, I started with 6 ships in dock after the merge and one port down from 4 prior to the merge. I had 7 ships to redeem and the cost to get port slots, expand my warehouse to accommodate items from my ports is bankrupting me. As I understand it this wasn't a wipe so I am at a loss as to why I am being disadvantaged like this vs people who were on the server previously. I had thought the process was essentially just a server transfer without any great loss, but I am finding that I cant even manage to get my ports/storage space with the available money and to expand to two ports and an extra 3 ship slots has diminished my money so dramatically that I cant even afford the extra ship slots let alone try and replace the factories I lost. The redeemable wipe seems a bit ridiculous, data isn't expensive and to store that you have an item as a redeemable would take up miniscule space in any case.
  11. I would be interested in being involved in this. While I am no naval architect I do have some fairly detailed books on it.
  12. This idea of clans taking over ports is a bad one, it will screw over anyone not belonging to a guild and you will lose players. Even those in guilds will tend to migrate guilds to get to ports they want.
  13. I was aware but had no intention of swapping from the EU server and thus it didn't seem necessary. Purely by luck I personally had played on the US server. There was no notification of the change in port battle hours till post wipe which effectively left us without an option to play there. The fact that I was aware of the wipe doesn't mean that I was aware that the EU server would become restricted and essentially unplayable. For my children who don't visit the forums at all (like the bulk of players) there was no notification at all. The posts you mention take no account of this and simply remind people that there was a suggestion that you synch your characters if you wanted to play on other servers, never that you would have to play on other servers. It would seem the developers were absent without care through out this whole fiasco.
  14. I would like to know that from a developer (while I appreciate your taking the time to reply I am not sure who you, are but you don't appear to be anyone with a position with the company) in which case I will cease playing for obvious reasons. This was very poorly handled. A lot of people don't visit the forums and even if they had the restrictions imposed on the EU server didn't appear till post wipe.
  15. My kids were in the same boat, while they made mention of logging into different accounts they never said that they would restrict the hours on the EU server effectively forcing people who had no intention of changing to do so. I was lucky that I happened to play on the US server but my 3 children didnt as none of us intended to change. The lack of synchronisation was a silly move and totally unnecessary.
