  1. Show me on the diagram where VCO touched you? That's a VCO screenshot, we're the true BLACK. Just read the names. Yours is missing.
  2. Don't derail the thread. The answer was already provided - it's a balancing mechanic against large area control. If you want to argue against it in principle, start a different thread - and better have a superior alternative.
  3. You're not saying anything useful. There's a simple industry standard, called Patch Notes. Perhaps some of the DLC money should be going towards making sure ALL the information is available in ONE place including important nuances like changes in the way join mechanics work. https://store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=311310 100% of the information should be posted in a separate post right there. Not somewhere deep in replies on the forum. You gotta stop apologizing for this madness.
  4. I don't think this implies "any battle". RvR specifically implies 1st Rates, and the requirement to move around in big groups. That last leg of the sail back almost never includes PvP (once you are out of sight of land, and with enough numbers to prevent further tags earlier anyway). Such unnecessary corners of "unfun" need to be shaved off, to leave as much of the actual PvP-time intact. Would you rather spend those 45 minutes sailing a slow group of PB ships safely back to port, or get back, get into a faster PvP ship, and actually show up elsewhere in the OW? Isn't that an actual
  5. Problem outline: This is a summary of a typical RvR session from the Aggressor: 1. Sail out of a port around 30-45 minutes away from where you want to attack. Spend 60 minutes or more because there is no way to match speeds, so Half-Sail juggling is maximum. 2. Fight in a port battle, up to 90 minutes. 3. Lose, and be unable to logoff - now have to spend 60 minutes or likely longer, while being harassed by enemies trying to catch someone sleeping. Considering the battle timers, that often means late night for most people, and it becomes a real pain to execute a strike.
  6. This system can be integrated into the PvP kill missions - a trader that struck their colors can be counted (with some cooldown to the count to prevent abuse, like "recently killed", "recently struck-colors"). Great idea. Being able to then pay Reals/Dubs from the ones carried in the Captain's Chest would be optimal, since some traders carry goods that the raider cannot really carry back.
  7. Good, but we should include a different track:
  8. Santa Marta PB was a disaster for two reasons: 1. William Death (Willis) did not call the battle. 2. Tenet was replaced in the PB list by some nepotistic scrub. I regret not having the opportunity to sink you again. A great game requires GREAT ENEMIES! You are the best Arch-Enemy one could wish for in a PvP game! I hope NA North American timezone becomes worth playing again, or some other game places us in another confrontation. Fair winds!
  9. Wasa killing L'Ocean used to be ~4000 XP, now reduced to ~2000 XP. 4th Rate killing Victory used to be ~3500 XP, now reduced to ~2000 XP. 5th Rate killing Wasa used to be ~2400 XP, now reduced to ~1200 XP. I didn't see such a huge XP nerf in any recent patch notes. Please restore the rewards!
  10. 1. Yes, crafting is too expensive. 2. Don't blame the players, blame the game. The economy only works if some people generate currency via moving objects. To be able to live by stealing, you need the majority to be producing things for you to steal.
  11. If you join the Russian Empire on the PvP server, I will build you a new Aggie as compensation. I was one of the people who reported this issue - an exploit that allowed a ship as small as the Surprise to kill a 1st Rate without firing a shot, by luring it outside the circle, then sailing back. Now NPC's are no longer bound by the circle - so if you want to capture a trader in the PZ, you have to demast or board fast. Combat ship NPC's are quite bad sailing upwind, so they may be pushed beyond the circle over time. If that happens, you might have to wait out the timer.
  12. Willis definitely has the original screenshots, as he called the battle. There are a lot of differences on that screenshot, like the "A" in [BLACK]. Pretty blurry, lets see if I can help: [VSC] Willis, [VSC] Tenet, [VSC] MidnightLight, [VCO] Jarlath Morrow, [VCO] Doug Maoz - did someone change their name? Did I forget someone active? Any of the names not mentioned still play? No disrespect intended. Which one of these names are you Simon? All your current leaders had to do was show up a month before release, and say "We're re-forming the old crew. Come join us and we will g
  13. Come fight them someday, at equal numbers, and they might teach you something too, like how to spell. Edit: Oh wait, you did fight them when you tried to steal Nuevitas... Hint from a fellow rookie: You want to save some longs and tap every enemy in the battle, so that if you lose badly, but your team gets one kill, you at least put that missing "A" on the score board. 👌 Since your pals always go into personal attacks, I'm not in the above screenshot, because I joined the fight that happened at the same time here: p.s. It is amusing how native English speakers man
  14. It's not a flaw, because I never claimed that was the reason I joined Russia. I just presented the current status of my PvP experience. HAVOC, WO, the Dutch, are some of the toughest clans on the server. English is my second language, but I'm fairly sure I was logically and semantically correct in my statement. You came into the thread to nitpick at a post I made. You may now leave.
  15. Great, and how would I make money to replace lost ships? Sail only Princes "again and again and again"? PvP and RvR is designed for 3 factions maximum. That worked for Dark Age of Camelot and other games. Having more factions at such a small population on server is a really bad design.
  16. In my timezone North American- or close to it, I face HAVOC, WO (when they return) and other Dutch clans, along with the remaining Prussians. In PZ we often fight the rest, people who are at or above my experience. What does the word "Most" mean in your post? Did you take an accurate count of the clans and their members, or is your veiled statistic merely in your imagination? For the record, I advocate openly for Clan Wars:
  17. My experience in Russia is entirely positive. 1. The chief organizers are competent, and received their roles by merit. 2. Besides BF doing their own thing, everyone tries to work together, most sharing the same TS 3. PvP is easy to get, and clans in the nation show up in every Patrol Zone. I'm learning a lot from facing some of the toughest clans on the server. 4. Nation chat is friendly (except a few alts we can ignore) and active - people show up to sink infiltrators and to raid. 5. Economy is much more efficient, we spend much less time sailing around for ship
  18. VSC contains quite a few members from "BL4CK", and quite a few brand new recruits that make great strides at learning the game. These former "BL4CK" members are the ones who wanted to play the game from day one. The members who were betrayed by You and 7Grams, by your refusal to plan for release. The members that stuck around in "BL4CK" back in 2017 for many battles longer than either of you "leaders", the ones that didn't get discouraged by losses, the ones that finally crushed WO at PdP. The members that lived in the future, and recognized that you can't keep treating multi-month recruits
  19. "...everything to be re-enacted twice over, once as grand tragedy and the second time as rotten farce".
  20. Will Great Britain fulfill her obligations? Will the advancing BL4CK hordes be stopped? Will the citizens of Santiago face the same persecution as the residents of Nuevitas and Baracoa? Find out in the next edition! Public Service Announcement: BE ALERT, STAY AWARE, PIRATE SPIES ARE EVERYWHERE! A message from our sponsor: QSPA - Quality Shit-Posting Alliance See you next time, Captain!
  21. I have a solution for that problem: 1. Enable the announcements in an API that players can use to create parsing tools / websites - ex: the twitter bot that does PB info 2. Enable the announcements in a separate optional menu in the map - showing a feed in descending order with latest at the top, with a sort pull down menu to pick an All or Area-Name.
  22. You can only join Baracoa if the BL4CK Gestapo doesn't find out who hides under your floorboards. Well done @SteelBeard, the Reich rewards its allies! Too bad for @Ed Rose and his Pirate Clan...
