  1. I'm sorry that I cant answer definitively... however, 1.3 percent is still good considering OW speeds are nearly doubled.
  2. I remember that she was regarded as already being outdated and slow by the time of Aubrey getting her. Two gun decks and only 50 guns meant she was slow and not big enough to stand in line of battle either.
  3. Just use the Indiaman.... its pretty close.
  4. To answer your question: An elite pirate/navy hull/copper on a fir/fir t-lynx MIGHT do it on a fully loaded t-lynx... (although in my humble opinion, nothing fully loaded should be able to reach the speed cap) But as with all battles, the tag will determine whether you get caught or not...
  5. "The Leopard was launched in 1790. As a 50 gun ship, she was already nearly obsolete, being too small to stand in the line of battle and unsuitable as a cruising ship." In the Canon Leopard - "the horrible old Leopard" - first appears in The Mauritius Command, where (as in real life) she takes a minor part in the campaign. Later, in Desolation Island, Jack Aubrey commands her on a voyage to Australia. By the end of the voyage in The Fortune of War she is in very poor condition having survived near shipwreck. She underwent makeshift repairs on Desolation Island but, as Aubrey puts it in The Surgeon's Mate, "the ice had given her frame such a wrench that she could not carry any piece of metal -- no good to man or beast: only fit for a transport." The ship's actual history also causes significant difficulties when negotiating with American whalers for assistance in repairing the rudder. Later in The Letter of Marque, Stephen Maturin takes passage to Sweden aboard the Leopard, now converted to a transport. Again the voyage is eventful with a grounding necessitating the repair of the rudder. However, Maturin is recognised as an old Leopard and treated with respect for the second half of the voyage.
  6. Well theres ur problem right there... a navy brig can easily escape from a Requin... its called LEARNING. But I can agree that giving rewards for damage would be good.
  7. 18 pounders on a shallow ship is the real problem here... was a poor choice from the get-go....
  8. Do all people these days need to be spoon fed EVERYTHING? What a scary thought.
  9. A) Imagine getting so worked up over a video game? b) People wanted clan wars over nations.... well, here we are... (thank the "usual suspects")
  10. Hahaha. You’re a peach. Do your own homework, champ.
  11. Sure have... was one of three Mortar Brigs at the Bluefields PB that killed the two forts despite being chased around by Xebecs Were the Mortar Brig captains perked for the task?
  12. Forts were far too easy to kill previously.... They are currently in a good place, IMO. The fort is lucky to get an odd hit on the mortar brig at maximum range while the mortar brig can lock on once he finds the range. Previous to this change, they were an actual liability, providing the attacker with easy points.
