  1. Just a moment please... Grey, green, blue and purple ships have been build in the past ans from time to time I've even bought them. I agree that in the past (e.g. before the port wipe) there were mostly Gold ships build. This was result of the availability of resources. That Situation has been changed completely with th port wipe (e.g. only six ports producing Silver or two ports producing Live-Oak). For a certain amount of time Clans might have their warehouses filld with these resources, but once they have exhausted that reserve I would expect to see a lot more of grey, green, blue and p
  2. In general I really like that idea, esp. that missions are open for 30 min so a nation has a chance to defend their regions. One thing looks a bit annoying and at least totally unrealistic: Ships, joining a mission after some minutes are spawning at the same place. For instance, a group of three Frigates fighting a single NPC SOL can find themselves just in the middle of a bunch of 10 enemy players with SOL's etc. ... out of blue, magically appeared in carronade distance... uh greetings from David Copperfield! I would suggest, that ships joining a mission later should spawn in some di
  3. I have to say that I don't like those kind of threads. While it's a showing off for one side it's an embarrasment for the other. Those two screenshots that are usually posted never tell the story behind that battle. Two screenshots (a snapshot of a battle) won't entertain me much. And last but not least, a real sportsman won't show off like this with his success and for sure he won't embasrass his opponents. Videos are different - thy are entertaining.
  4. Ahm... a year before Spain was still fighting against the allied forces aside the French Edit: So you are f***ed anyway: The Brits will say Spanish are not grateful for the help, the French will say Spain was backstabbing them. What a mess
  5. If you are referring to real history, you probably forgot that the perfidious Albion was kicking the French and Napoleon Bonapartes brother Joseph who claimed to be King out of Spain between 1807 and 1814. Something the Spanish were not able to achieve on their own. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peninsular_War Just saying
  6. Capt. Pellasgos, I have to admit, that my wording on that post was not polite. I apology for that. I would rather have asked you to express yourself and your probably valid points in a more polite way so they would get noticed in a way they deserved.
  7. Indeed, you did. Like we were asking you not to take Fort Oranje. You agreed to our request, we didn't. At least we didn't so far. You were claiming that the Flag for Fort Oranje were already on its way when we requested that favor. The Dutch Nation High Council will have it's regular meeting tomorrow 1900 CEST and we will for sure discuss this topic and vote for a decision. Unfortunately there are always some over motivated players in our country that can't wait and probably won't even follow the Councils decisions. I believe you know what I mean because you - or the French - lets say your
  8. Mijnheer, I believe you're mixing up different threads... Who is crying about your allies? It's up to you to choose yours and up to us to choose ours.
  9. Who is whining about 3 vs. 1? I'm looking forward to the new PB System and I hope this will end the fake attack to take ports without fighting bs. And sure, I really understand that you Frenchies need good allies that do the hard work. We prefer to do the hard work by our own.
  10. Capt. Pellasgos, first of all, unlike you I watch my mouth. Second, the Dutch Nation High Council decided to send their diplomats to the Spanish just to see if something could be achieved for the Dutch player base with the upcoming port wipe in mind. Third, neither I nor my fellow Diplomat bowed to the enemy. You were not there so I consider everything you wrote came out of your crude fantasy. And last but not least: I'm grateful for the fact that is is not up to you to get anyone of the representatives of the Dutch Nation High Council or Diplomatic Corps to step down from his role.
  11. When we came on your TS the Flag was not planted and you assured us to stop it. Anyway, I considered this as an offer from your side and you decided not to fulfill it and you have had the right to do so. Yes, at this point in time we had 8-9 ports. But these are finally ports we will loose with the port wipe - so no place you want to store your stuff. Yo may probably not understand the issue and the importance of Fort Oranje and Fort Zoutman in conjunction with the port wipe because Spain will not face that problem, so let me explain: Together with Willemstad which is our capital, Fort
  12. Well, I won't call that actually an agreement. I have considered as an offer from their side. They offered it to us as a gesture of good will for the time coming after the port wipe when we become neighbors. And they decided to retract that offer for whatever reason.
  13. Brits and Dutch stopped that campaign when Spain had 15-16 ports left IIRC. They were not attacked on the North side of Cuba - still enough to maintain a player base, get people together, trade and build new ships and come back into the game. So Spain was not reduced to two ports while facing a port wipe where you own only one port that will ye yours after the wipe. I still believe these are two completely different situations.
  14. Ah, Vicious, no crocodile nor any other tears on my side. Finally to bring it to the point: We talked to the Spanish two days ago and asked them for the generous favor to let us keep the ports of Fort Zoutman and Fort Oranje since these are the only ones left to us after the port wipe. Nothing more, nothing less. We told them that we would be happy to fight them on Open Water and any other port. If we were not facing the upcoming port wipe we would have never made that request. Such a gesture would have suited a real Gentleman. It would have kept doors open for the time coming after the
  15. Ahm... Vicious, I believe you're barking on the wrong guy. Stilgar is a Dutch country fellowmen I believe
  16. With all my respect Sir, but I couldn't assume the content of this mail as an proposal. And the "proposal" we got afterwards would have meant that we would have betrayed our allies. What did you expect? That we stay neutral when you get on the Brits while you're still supporting your French and Danish allies against us? And again, I'm fine with it. But what happened in the past two days is a completely different story and has nothing to do with any "Peace" offers.
  17. Mijnheer Tenakha Kan, please excuse me, but that is really a damn good joke. I did never know that French have such a fine sense for black humor, always thought that this is up to the Brits.
  18. Shall I bring evidence in form of a screenshot of the personal conversation I had with your Diplomat Celtiberofrog on the 11th of September? And by the way, your "joke" was lame ...
  19. The 'Someone' situation has been explained and cleared several times in the past. At the best will, you can't take that as an excuse for anything. But you did it. So what? I consider this as one of the weakest excuses I have ever read. IIRC the three Admirals Treaty was about setting up a PVP Zone at Hispaniola and leave the National territories untouched until the deployment of a patch. It was about protecting esp. your player base and IIRC the Spanish Nation never ratified that treaty so it was never legally effective. And with all respect Sir, you don't know what wo
  20. First: Your Diplomat Celtiberofrog contacted me and was asking for a Dutch Diplomat or if Capt. Pellasgos is the one to talk to. That was about three weeks ago and before your "Peace" offer. I told him that Capt. Pellasgos is no official representative of the Duch Nation (and he still isn't) and who were the Diplomats he should contact. So it was well known to your Diplomats who to contact within the Dutch Nation. Second: Historically speaking the Spanish, the major force of the world at this time, were not able to defeat the Dutch will for freedom within 80 years and they were accepting D
  21. We were not asking for a peace! We asked for the favor to keep the ports of Fort Zoutman and Fort Oranje in order to have a chance to prepare for the upcoming port wipe. I would have considered that as a generous gesture that would suit real gentlemen. If it was so boring, why did you do it? Why did you Spanish, French and Danish guys take so much empty ports, attacked repeatedly Traders Brigs two times within 15 minutes with a Buccentaure and a Constitution or a lonely Cerberus by two Buccentaure, two Constitutions and a Rattlesnake? * I agree with you - I consider that as boring
  22. I pray for a good wind blowing from North to South to fill their sails and bring them home soon.
  23. The following is a very personal statement: @ Capt. Pellasgos: Why, for heavens sake, can't you just shut up only for once? Sir, with all my respect, but I want to make it as clear as possible: Capt. Pellasgos is only speaking for himself! His post gives a bad name to himself only! Personally I consider the statements of Spain and France in this thread as a unilateral decision. The Dutch Nation High Council will decide whether they will accept these offers or not. The Dutch Nation Diplomatic Corps got into contact with Spanish and French Diplomats when we were already reduced
