  1. The bonuses themselves aren't the whole problem. Clan ownership of ports has completely destroyed the viability of starting new clans or moving them en mass to a new nation, which in many ways is the #1 factor, (paid forged papers DLC being a necessity purchase instead of being available without further investment into the game being a close #2) which leads to rvr stagnation and the inability for nations to either grow OR get smaller. There was always massive periodic population shifts from player driven wars/events in-game in the past which were instrumental in breaking up population blobs that naturally occur from time to time. Think of the small but steady flow and occasional deluge of players moving between nations as a healthy cardiovascular system keeping multiple aspects game fresh for players. There are alot of things that can, should, and have been put behind a paywall. Swapping nations was not one of them imho. Just wanted to throw in another perspective.
  2. Ive found (no idea if its factual) that if you sail close to shore you get crap fish and very very very rarely a bottle. When sailing far from shore where you get fish worth 5 or 10 or 20 provisions when broken down i seem to get bottles more frequently but idk if that has any correlation with bottle drop chance.
  3. Me when i saw that dutch carebears had, in fact, not taken the bait and that my bullshit had been spotted from a mile away.
  4. They would because they have the highest pop on the server, and are the most organized.
  5. That response reeks of guilt and impotence.
  6. No i was talking about the dutch. I thought you were dutch because you brought up the carta pb from the other day... either way if GB cant muster 20 PvE 1st rates i would be absolutely shocked.....and infinitely amused when they lose their crafting ports after talking so much trash about penalizing russia for having too many players.
  7. Kinda sounds like havoc when they camp free ports near patrol zones
  8. Not counting the 20 or more that were screening? You might want to actually check your facts before it makes you look stupid. Speaking of looking stupid, i counted 21 dutch first rates in the PB.................... so good job checking your..... facts.
  9. Should be the top 5 nations that have to deal with this not top 3 Spread the fun around a little bit @admin, we dont want to hog all the action like a zerg. Plus, more feedback means a more polished feature. quick question while im at it, will there be only one ai attack per weekend on one of the 3 nations and only on one of multiple targets in said target nation? ie. do nations/clans get breaks from being targeted or is this an every weekend thing?
  10. You dont say shit in ts, ive been polite for the sake of the team spirit. What are my politics anyway? *ronpaul 2020
  11. Councils are for f#%s, the rank and file are at the pub crackin kegs.
  12. I cant, id get banned immediately or i totally would... what a set-up
  13. Agreed on the first part, its impossible to really blame one specific issue i guess because there are quite a few working in tandem atm. As for people jumping ship well, idk what to say. Ive been playing with the same group for like two years. Everyone who came over after the wipe made their own choices. Ultimately it was bad for the nations they left, which i was sorry to see, but i cant do anything about it.
  14. Everything you said is true, but you omitted that things got stale after the majority of the active clans and yourself united to stomp out russia, even though sweden at the time was more powerful and held more ground. For whatever reason no one else had seen fit to try to attack you guys after russia imploded despite sweden holding many of the strategic locations on the map. In the end it is what it is, i certainly got my moneys worth out of the game, and thats all i can ask for.
  15. Game was broken the second they listened to the clan based content crowd and added port bonuses and port development. Seemed like a cool addition at the time. Maybe it could be fixed but i wouldn't know where to start at this point. I miss the national spirit and toxic in game nationalism.
  16. Pirates, GB, Sweden all zergs at some point...people united to stop them.....not go to the forums and demand vague changes be made to the game to stop them. Thats my point. If you dont want to do rvr and the game is stale for you why go to the forum and declare that the game is dead and its all admins fault when a concerted effort was never made to unite and stop the current zerg which many people want to say is breaking the game? The way i see it, large clans that have taken the old deny content doctrine by not attacking/defending their own ports are denying content to their own nation's players just as much if not more as they seem to think they are denying russia and its a big reason (but certainly not the only reason) why the game is bleeding pop.
  17. Thats a low effort, cookie cutter response. Ive been "ganked" far more than ive ganked. Tbh i went out alone far more often than not. Most people in REDs, with the exception of a select few dont like the pzs unless they go out in force and in fully kitted ships. I was using oak oak with trash upgrades if i had any at all most of the time.
