  1. At least someone in BLACK acknowledges there is a different pirate mechanic that makes it easier for the pirates to thrive as a nation that it's impossible for other nations to do. "Get organized" isn't so easy, especially for countries the size of US and GB, when there is no way to resolve differences of opinion and establish that mutual respect and tolerance that must be the be the foundation for any broader level of cooperation.
  2. But...but....they are ALLLMOOOOST done grinding their ship slots and then they will be ready to come out and fight.
  3. Unlimited teleport eliminates whatever little reason there is left for RVR. If they fix RVR to have more of a point, then perhaps TP can be brought back. As with many other things, the root issue isn't that TP is or is not available. People just ask for it to band aid some other bigger problem in the game.
  4. So what if you have the contention logic applied to Freeports? If there is contention you can teleport. If there isn't you can't. I'd have to think through what it would mean based on different nation contention and what levels might matter and whether the logic would apply to teleport to vs. teleport from. Perhaps if you have a Freeport bordering a US owned county. As long as the US keeps the contention at 0 no other country can teleport to that Freeport. However, if GB puts GB contention on the port, GB can but no other nation can. If the Pirates want to act
  5. Ok, so we don't need Thunderdome then. We need to schedule PB's and schedule PB flip attempts. We should know that the Pirates will be flipping Trinidad in the SE corner of the Map on Thursday at 8pm Eastern to make sure we are online and not already up at La Mona or Mortimer and therefore a 3+ hour sail away to come down and counter grind / fleet intercept a PB that we have no intention of showing up for regardless. You are missing the point completely. WE ARE PLAYING DIFFERENT GAMES. We just happen to be logging into the same server to do it.
  6. Someone is a bit sensitive today. I wasn't attacking Black in my post. I was pointing out Black is playing a different game than other parties are in this game. And until we can figure out how to make those different games intersect each other, nothing will actually get fixed in a meaningful way. But since you point out OW hostility grind, keep in mind that the hostility grind happens right before the PB flip is finished with a 2 hour offset. When you flip a port for a 7am Eastern Portbattle, that means you finished the OW hostility grind at 9am Eastern. Now if France is
  7. I was out of town and couldn't log in, but from what I understood, Trinidad was set up at the same time Dominca was against the Danes. Now if I'm wrong, then I should correct what I said and should have said "All but ONE of the PB's were actually set at a time the majority of the nation could attend" The rest of your post I'm not sure what exactly has to do with this thread but *shrug*.
  8. The crux of the problem is there is no way to get the players to want to play the same game. [BLACK] wants to play the Dots game and just take ports away from anyone that looks at them the wrong way. They think they win since no one has stopped them from doing this. US and GB stopped trying to stop them. France never intended on trying to stop them (not that they really could have put up a serious effort given none of the PB's were actually set at a time the majority of the nation could attend -- and the one port they flipped was never intended on being a PB but was just done in hopes
  9. I think a good chunk of the communication gap is that not everyone is "keeping score" the same way. Heck some people aren't keeping score at all? So you say [insert group 1] is [winning and insert group 2] is losing. So therefore it's just sour grapes by "the losing side". The reality and what the point of this post isn't losers complaining about what the winners are doing. The reality if this point is we ARE ALL LOSERS ULTIMATELY the way the game is currently being played out.
  10. [BLACK] Player and [CCCP] Player hiding in a battle off FR. French Player (Known and openly admitted [BLACK] Alt) sitting at FR scouting when players came out so the [BLACK] player in battle with [CCCP] could pop out of the battle to tag them. I'm not naming names since as you say all of these are known game mechanics and not against the rules and I'm not trying to flame anyone in particular. But don't say [BLACK] doesn't play those types of games.
  11. Yup...probably about as much a waste of time sitting in an empty PB (see what I did there?)
  12. You will find that in general it is the same relatively small group of people that account for 80% or more of what you don't like. If you just ignore those people, its really not all that bad. Everyone, myself included, will get baited into saying something you might normally not but hey we're all human and emotions get the best of us sometimes.
