  1. I think this thread has some potential. I have many times seen suspicious activity by various players which on it's own would not be sufficient for a tribunal. If everyone reported such activity in an outlet like this, I think some patterns may emerge concerning certain players or even clans, which could be enough for the devs to look into. I of course have no problems with people owning any number of alts, however farming them is not fair to those of us who put in real time in the OW doing pvp.
  2. What the US would do with Islamorada if they were cool.
  3. I've got a note as well, however, I'm saving it, in case the devs make it so notes can have port bonuses.
  4. If he surrendered, then the ship was not sunk, which means the person who did the most damage currently "owns" the ship. Only they would be able to loot, unless they right click on it and make available for all. Combat news shows your friend did the most damage, did they also try to loot?
  5. Sounds to me like someone wants easy AFK trade routes in the open ocean with very low risk of attack and high reward. Basically Bermuda 2.0.
  6. Yes, after that battle, one of your clan Worms declared that someone in your clan was better than me at pvp (laughable), I later sunk Worms and offered to 1v1 anyone in your clan who is up to it. Accidentally being sunk by a friendly does not reflect on my skill.
  7. I don't think a battle where you lost a 2nd rate to a lone wapen, then ran for an hour until I was accidentally sunk by a friendly really is the image you want for your clan. My offer still stands, I'll 1v1 any one in KRAKE because I'm better than everyone in KRAKE.
  8. @admin I have questions about the privateer fleets: Are they working as intended? Is there really supposed to be a instant kill zone around enemy capitals? How can the AI 1st rates catch a 30.0 kn ship in the open world? When the Trinc main ship of the privateer fleet tags me at the edge of the circle, are the 1st rates supposed to spawn 500 meters ahead of that location right next to me? If they are working as intended, then I have many suggestions. If they are not working as intended, I would like to report the incident recorded below (f11 sent at the time) and request my ship back.
  9. It's not a bug, it's a feature.
  10. It was 16.0 even I wish 😥 I was probably risking more than your whole gank fleet combined. I had three ships out there, my gold Wapen, the gold Wapen I lent Lionshaft, and the purple/fast Ingermanland I lent Railgun. We did not only hit traders, there's a french Buc and purple Lo/Wo 3rd rate sitting at the bottom of the ocean too. Maybe @LionShaft got a screenshot. I think mods are currently well balanced if we look at the whole risk/reward situation. If you invest 10 million reals worth of mods into a ship, it has to pay off, atleast most the time. If not, gold ships and mods just become museum pieces, which sit in the docks to be marveled at but never used. I don't think anyone wants that.
  11. Sorry if off topic, but how do you scuttle your AI ship? I can't seem to do damage to my fleet ships.
  12. I run into this error when I try to change my profile picture. What does it mean? Do I need to free up space?
  13. how do I manage my attachments? I need to free up space.
  14. nah, I don't care about how long people have played. Maybe scores over time, divided by number of ships sunk to get the average, and then scale each one by the BR of the ship you were sailing so herc vs herc battle is just as important as santi vs santi. Some people don't like line ships, but they can still be good pvpers.
  15. I agree with all your points, a ranking system based on normal OW battles would be nearly impossible as it is hard to get a good comparison between players. Ranked battles could be limited to the solo patrol zone, or possibly include battle is started in the OW between matching ships (I know they're rare😢). I was actually thinking the OW stuff would mostly determine initial rankings; after that they would mostly be determined as in my suggestion below, with maybe slight shifts from OW content.
  16. Comparisons to other players is the only reason I want the rankings. I keep offering duels to everyone to show I'm better, it would be easier though if there was some leader board I could point them to instead though.
  17. I'd like to see a player ranking system, not a daily ranking, a permanent list. I don't know how the rankings should work, that can be discussed. However, one important thing is it should be a ranking of player skill, not based on time spent. The daily pvp board is just total BR sunk, so that's obviously time based. Once there is an initial list of player ranks, people should be able to challenge those ranked above them, and if they win or the challenge goes unmet, they move up the rankings.
  18. I started a battle in the patrol zone vs an elite ai + fleet, and it was not a patrol zone battle when I entered. All of the AIs fleet was in the battle and there was no boundary circle. I submitted a bug report. The ship I was in sunk, because there were a bunch of elite ai that should not have been there, and I would like it back. I have a video of the battle if needed, but I would rather not upload it at the moment, hopefully the information in the bug report is sufficient.
  19. Chances are at least a few of the people you used to sail with still play, so you might want to ask around see if there's anyone you recognize. If not, I'm sure any nation would like the addition of an experienced sailor, I know we certainly would in pirates. You should probably know the current political situation too, which is Russia, Dutch, and Britain currently have the most population with Russia being the clear winner on the RVR and PVP side. Pirates, US, and Swedish also have enough people to fill port battles. So any of them would be a decent choice.
  20. The British never did get me, but my santi was eventually done in by the shrinking circle. A disappointing way to go by poor game mechanics.
  21. I did a port raid, sunk all the ships and captured the indiaman, however I had to sail down wind to sink the last ship and had already captured the indiaman. It then kicked me out of battle before I could sail back to the indiaman to put crew on it. edit: I also made it back to port in my santisima, so it is fair to assume the rewards would have made it back too.
