  1. I don't care about a wipe ot not - I'll be happy either way. I would say that when I started one of the things that made me play the game was being able to see players of a higher rank than me - see what they could do and think 'I want to be able to do that!' or 'I want that ship too!' Players who have played in EA will always have an advantage over someone who has not. They know the game, they know how to make money, how to kill AI/other players, in short they know how the game works. Someone coming new has to learn all that and will be at a disadvantage until they have. Exisiting clans will always have themselves established before new players could.
  2. If you capture a Le Requin (for example) in a battle (instance) and transfer to it (sail in it) you can do that. If you want the doubloons/other rewards, you have to sink it in the battle (instance). To do that you have to be on a different ship which needs to be a non DLC one.

    HAVOC vanished from clan leaderboard

    Might it be they fell foul of the dreaded text counting problem? If a computer compares two values as text, then 10 is less than 2, because it only compares the 1 against the 2. If a computer compares two values as numbers then 10 is bigger than 2 - because it compares the numeric values correctly.
  4. Maybe I'm just unlucky, but I did some PvE last night. I took 2 fleets of medium AI - 1 Frigate + 8 en 1 Belle Poule + 7 = 17 ships plus also 1 other random ship and 4 traders. For a total of 22 ships sunk and looted I got 17 doubloons from one of the mediums. I also got one or two nice upgrade drops, which is nice, but I'm not sure if the doubloon level is what I should be expecting - or if, as I say, I was just unlucky.

    BATTLE Instance total size?

    if ships are capped at 15knots, that's 27.78km/h. So in an hour and a half you can only travel 41.67km in any one direction, so battle instance doesn't have to be all that big.
  6. Am I just missing the mint building - or isn't it available yet?
  7. That might be a good thing. Might give a reason to own a particular port if it spawned good missions - leading to more rvr...
  8. Whist crafting I noticed that the list of ship blueprints you can make doesn't update as you craft, so you can't see what you can make with your live crafting level. You have to close the list and then open it again in order to get the up to date list
  9. If you mean you can't see the testbed in the dropdown list, I had the same problem. You have to enter the code in the box and click checkcode to get the testbed option to appear in the dropdown list.

    Ship Usefulness.

    Could we try testing the complete removal of mods? So we just had ships that you'd then choose the build/wood of. That way ships would be much closer together and I think each would have their role again. Would be much simpler for everyone too. Maybe bring back a small region dependant bonus to promote pvp around those regions?

    Idea: Mrs. nChance wants to talk about relationships...

    I think the frigate class was the most balanced. In my clan we had people who loved the Trinc, but others hated it's heal and loved the Essex. I didn't like the heal and had to have bow chasers, so my favourite was the frigate. The point was no ship could do everything. Which your favourite was, depended upon how you liked to sail. That's how it should be. If one ship can do much more than any other in it's class, then it's always going to become the ship of choice.
