  1. So you know of John Snow, good glad my statement was correct then... Norfolk nGenius
  2. @Papillon You make a valid point. The distinction between Toxic and Over-Sensitivity in this game is much closer (or bar is set higher if you will) than other MMOs with a much younger crowd. If @admin has added ‘family insults’ as you state then they must ban him. Forget the warning first... I agree it does take five minutes for a quick look but a distraction all the same. How long did the Dev’s look at forum ban cases just recently, five minutes? I’d hope a little longer than that, but considering the reputed size probably not. How far does this then go? I do empathize with @dron44I but I feel it’s a warning when all said and done. The Global Chat has a limited life span if the Tribunal becomes flooded with similar evidence of this new class of Toxic Behaviour. And I guarantee it will be flooded. Norfolk Ps Once chat as gone, it won’t comeback.
  3. @dron44I What do you genuinely think? This was my reply to your last post with the same title at the bottom. Is this current image TOXIC no, is it Cyber Bullying no. It is poor taste school yard humour by Jenek yes. Why should this client receive an outright Ban? Report him if you’ve sensitivity issues and then press ignore. The problem is what I’ve sighted below. Reporting this on the Tribunal now means @Ink needs to look at this. Not a moderator. By also reporting him it does the same action. You are adding to the @admin problem… I don’t want him to have rethink. I’m not justifying @Janek in anyway, but have think first before instigating a Tribunal post. Norfolk nChance [ELITE] Put things into some realistic context here... Was this toxic behaviour or cyber bullying? I think not, was it school yard, in poor taste behaviour? Probably yes. Does it deserve a warning probably yes, a ban no. The @admin problem… The thing is with this sort or reporting and behaviour we play into @admin hands. He’s wanted and warned in the past how he’d like to shut down global chat. It wastes @Ink time. If @admin decided to do this just because of this one-sided behaviour offered as evidence it would be a travesty. I don’t want to lose Global chat. This was not toxic or bullying behaviour. However, I do think @dron44I and @Jack Aubrey owe some form of apology… If you want a real mom joke…What’s the difference between your mom and 3 dicks…? Your Mom can’t take a joke…
  4. the idea as a campaign mission for the U-Age of Sail game we are currently testing... Sorry my bad for not making that clear NnC
  5. completely agree Norfolk nTexas
  6. @dron44I you could always help by taking the higher ground. Secondly my mother joke is better than yours... N.

  8. @Sir Texas Sir @The LoneWolf we had some too remember... [EDARK] If ALT accounts were encouraged, promoted and tested for control, the need for DLCs pre-launch wouldn't have risen. Moving forward, at launch The Equalizer idea along with the Rank promotion change suggested solves not all but a lot of issues. With DLCs the game will not attract Cat2 Old Players that'll stay long enough on its own.

  9. Would like to see this a campaign mission here... https://forum.game-labs.net/topic/29028-book-when-britain-burned-the-white-house/ Norfolk
  10. Book: When Britain Burned the White House Peter Snow, 2013 https://www.amazon.com/When-Britain-Burned-White-House/dp/1250048281 Hadn’t done a book review for sometime and thought this is one might be useful for the New Ultimate-Age of Sail testing by @sterner. A Campaign mission around this incident would be interesting. The book tells of the 1814 invasion of Washington DC by British forces. Anybody from the UK will know John Snow the journalist very well indeed. He and his nephew have done some great battle re-works over the years. In this work John Snow gives a very readable piece covering the amphibious assaults on Washington DC and Baltimore. The key is Snow’s narrative bringing the story alive making it read like a thriller. With colourful details regarding personalities and their interactions with one another. The notes on Harry Smith and George De Lacy Evans giving new revelations was an insight on the events. I buried the book in a weekend without even noticing… The book contains several maps and glossy prints of the participants and the White House of course. However, the book only gives a brief outline to the British-US war of 1812 and its outcome. Also, from a Naval-Action point of view it is lacking in big picture detail surrounding the Naval events. It does cover the FORT McHenry bombardment from British Bomb ships though. Summary For me from an armchair strategists’ point of view, we start to see the development of British Armed Forces working together as a team. Before we’d seen the Royal Navy as a delivery system only, like in the Peninsula campaigns of Portugal. The influence of Admiralty butting heads with Senior Army hierarchy is interesting here while fighting the young American’s. That friction of Navy, Army and air force still exists to this day in many ways… The book I would recommend actually to all GL Forum members from UG to NA-OW. I bet you’ll struggle to put this book down…! Regards Norfolk nChance [ELITE] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_of_Washington
  11. @Farrago You make a fair and good point. When I write a suggestion or idea or eventually a review, I always try to Qualify and Quantify my statements. Always have, that’s just me. This idea below is about the actual launch. Go straight to the last post by myself. Have a look at the STEAM link. Two bad review POSTs on Apr12’19 from The Shadow & DRG. https://forum.game-labs.net/topic/28817-idea-the-big-wipe-equalizer/ They might be two different players and they are quite right to express very bad pointers to the game. The issue is neither review qualifies or quantifies their statements in time and place. This magnified by 14k and 15k total hours played and each have played the game for nearly 200hours within the last two weeks. Think if the game launch is March 2020, and how do you think it will look a month before D-Day? The two Reviews above could be very spot on or way off the mark. The number of hours played is what gives these two weight. Will ‘The Shadow’ & ‘DRG’ update and edited their respective reviews if the game mechanics improve or even worsen further has diligently as you do @Farrago? The only refence is the date posted, but you also need to watch how many hours they played in the last two weeks. I bet they are still very regularly take 200hrs of game worth content out EVERY two weeks from now till launch. Is that fair then to give it a bad review? The example of course would work both ways, if they were GOOD reviews etc. Its why I might have a bit of sympathy for @admin with 30,000 hours of game content delivered in early access for USD80 paid and accumulating 400 hours additionally every two weeks. Or am I just a fanboy? I personally will probably make a review a month prior to launch and edit that post launch. This simply because its in EA and I don’t know the future. I’ve no crystal balls… Norfolk nChance
  12. PORT BATTLE realistic thinking... That wizened old salty bad-tempered Senior Pirate with a Southern drawl needs to be listened too. Whether you look through the bitterness or take it at face value, complicated ideas WON’T go for whatever reason. Offer a small TESTER try-out idea before any form of Grand plan. Think about testing this first. Something very easy that @Ink would spend little time on. Idea: PvE Co-Op PORT BATTLE @admin Take one fixed Neutral PORT, example La Navasse. Same Nation Groups raise hostility via missions popping the PORT BATTLE trigger. A fixed time start is given on the next server cycle. Like Co-Op EPICs minimum fleet size of six with a maximum of ten ships. Make it a fourth-rate battle limiter (not port BR method). This is just an EPIC overlay onto a PORT. No extra programming needed with three Circles. If successful, the Nation takes the PORT for a maximum of five days. After which time the PORT will default back to its Neutral status. Within them next five days at least ONCE at the same start time an AI PORT BATTLE attack will be triggered. You and your fleet will need to defend an incoming AI force set on retaking the PORT. Can this simple mechanic be done first? I think its worth a try and see how it goes. From there then you build out... Norfolk
  13. @jodgi Are you sure Ping Rate as nothing to do with it? My Asian Ping now slipped to 220 in Battle Instance and the Tutorial/Exam sequences. This could be a huge problem if your correct. I was damn sure Ping Rate was to blame, turns out I’m just cr@p at Naval-Action... Norfolk nClue
  14. @no one That’s a whole different subject my friend. In my opinion players should be forced to start PvE before entering PvP. WoWs do it, EvE Online does it etc... Its how they give the Newbie BASIC training. Its how these two games keep Newbie retention levels... Our Ranking systems is flawed, is too quick and is focused on CREW size only. It needs changing... Your idea is good, I really like the PORT BATTLE. Norfolk
