  1. Well its good to see the brits trying i guess, you miss 100% of the shots you dont take.
  2. 8/10 was waiting for someone to catch that
  3. Get rid of it. It does more harm than good for ow pvp. Half the server is alts you wont stop them all from exploiting to make rank anyway. I dont see how you can even be trolled now, you can port to outpost after you die meaning you cant get camped in a port. I honestly dont know how you'd be trolled unless you wanted to lose ships. As far as exploiting goes, whats easier to detect in combat news, someone farming an alt every 45 mins or w/e the cooldown is, or someone going to town on an alt as fast as they can. It can be done either way, the cooldown only makes it harder for other players to detect and other players watching combat news seems (to my knowledge) to be the only way to monitor that form of exploit.
  4. Are you a KoC forum alt? Just asking because you both have writing skills consistent with a 3rd grader
  5. If anyone wants a baseline for triggered just check out christendom's and koc's tribunals against each other. Spoiler alert, they are hilarious. Edit: if its not the steven crowder trigglypuff you're doing it wrong.
  6. What is her in-game crew total? It may not be wise to put 24lbers on her.
  7. And flipping ports in the literal middle of the night US time early monday morning proves that how?
  8. I live near the east coast and ive been playing with the EU players since EA dropped no problem, thats why i call bullshit on the 3-6 flips. You can sugarcoat the turd all you want. What z4ys says is inherently true but at the same time its very easy to abuse the system when none of the "night crews" want to fight each other anymore because thats the only content they could get before and after they all finished sealclubbing the US who were the odd one out in "your" time window.
  9. Honestly idk why the spanish didnt put timers on some of these ports but decided to put one on arcas, i chuckled a bit from seeing that one.
  10. Haha i would have thought you'd have a better explanation to that than "you're triggered". This isnt reddit bub, and speaking of triggered, who can remember the "lunchflip" outrage. That was priceless..
  11. Take it easy sport, pre release wipe and map wipe is presumably on the horizon. I dont think the majority of people give a shit anymore, especially not about nightflipped ports when we can only muster like 400 ppl online in-game max (including alts). Besides if it ever got so bad people would just switch nations and push GBs shit in while flying a different flag.
  12. Everyones free to play their own game. Nightflips are just a guarantee that Spain, and any other nation/clan that likes to play the game at a sane hour on weekdays wont ever have a cohesive pb group in any of these battles so there wont ever be competetive fights. Those that are nightflipping know this, just like they have since this first became an issue. It is what it is.
  13. Who exactly requested the port back? just for the record. If id known that yesterday i wouldnt have wasted my time. Last time i checked no one gave a shit about vacas. As a staging point for raiders, KW makes it redundant. As a res or crafting hub its useless due to it being on the fringes of spanish territory. We just wanted to see if vco wanted to/had the nuts to fight in anything other than fir fir speed cappers and dlc ships.
  14. Well if the majority of players want to manuever and cap circles instead of playing battles out then thats just the way it is.
  15. If they overhaul crafting-resources-and the economy, specifically the need for having an outpost for res buildings it would give them leeway to reduce that number, for those of us who dont have crafting/res farming alts. Its a pain in the ass, for me anyways, trying to balance crafting needs with pvp outposts even with 8. I guess its worth waiting to see how the forthcoming changes play out. Imho alts should never have been allowed before release because they ultimately make it impossible to get a real read on the economy and other aspects of the game as it was being built/built upon. Now they are irreversibly built into the foundation of the game.
  16. Im not sure exactly what your angle is. Im really only referring to the high end BR ports. Theres always a place for bellonas/wasas in all BR tiers (except shallows obviously). If you cant play out a brawl in the highest BR pbs then there is really no point in having them. Im not trying to shit on anyone who enjoys sailing 6-7th rates, im simply curious as to why they play such a decisive role in battles that, as i understood it, were specifically designed for ships of the line. Its not the direct risk to the 1st rate, its the fact that 3/4 of people in a high tier pb are rendered completely irrelevant to the outcome of the battle and imho it should be the other way around. 1st rate availability and maintenance is another conversation, one that should be had probably, but not one relevant to the point im trying to make. And if your concern is including people who cant sail SoL or need experience in pbs then grind shallows or low tier pbs. Its also worth noting that the ease with which fortifications are destroyed and the reward for destroying them only exacerbates this issue. (Disregard if this has changed at all in a recent patch)
  17. I thought the whole purpose of having high BR ports was to create large scale SOL brawls and low/mid BR was where the smaller ships become relevant. If the SOL brawl is irrelevant and battles end before the outcome of the brawl is decided (for the most part), in high BR ports whats the point of having high BR ports? Does no one see an issue with this?
