  1. Captains, Admin and Devs, Onboard my Pickle, Kidd's Harbour. Waiting........waiting........waiting. My awesome Seadog Wade is guarding me, he thinks I'll do something stupid. He made me SIT on the doghouse forward of the pumps and told me to STAY. Oh, the ignominity of it all, being told what to do by a dog. I sit and wait.......Petty Officer Wade brings me tea, tea mind you! Says I can't have any rum till the deed is done. So I sit and wait, guarded by those teeth that could rip a mans arm off if he wanted to. "Don't test me Master. A couple of months and I've had you for 2 years and I don't want to go back to being a feral dog. So you just STAY put. That's what you tell me all the time." So I sit, drink my tea and wait...........See you all on the other side. Drat dog let me be! I promise I'll not do anything stupid!!! Fair sailing all from Petty Officer 2nd Class Wade *guarding* and a quiet Captain Ed. Then I get some rum. Please Mr. Wade, I want some rum.......Wait Master, wait.
  2. Ahoy Captains, The anticipation is nearly killing me. In a fit of anticipatory angst I ran up on deck and threw myself over the rail. Seadog Wade jumped in after me and drug me back on board. After depositing me on my quarterdeck he told me to SIT and Stay or he would have me confined to my cabin.Insolent dog! 37kg (80lbs), "DON'T argue with my teeth and all will be well Capt." I'll have words with that dog after I've recovered from taking in all this water. *Falls over....Plop* (Petty Officer Wade) "Don't worry. I'll lick and revive him later so he can watch the fireworks. You will have fireworks won't you?" I think Master says, "Fair sailing.", or something like that. I say "WOOF, make it so."
  3. AMEN, AMEN, AMEN!!! Is everything perfect...No. Do I love messing around in ships?.....Yes. Does this game, above all others get me as close to what I want as I can get?.....Yes. Do I enjoy it?....Yes. Can I find/do better?....NO. Captain Ed and Seadog 2nd Class Wade are going to continue to sail the High Seas with joy and vigor for as long as the servers are up and have a hell of a great time doing so, come hell or high water. Sorry to be short but I have to get back to work. See you all on the High Seas, fair sailing and a great game launch.
  4. Ahoy Captains, After an exhaustive search of the east and north sides of the map I have found no way in. Yet. I did find this interesting place at the northeast corner of the map. Now off to other great adventures with the indomitable Petty Officer Wade by my side. Hint, hint (Not so subtle.) I want a canal. Fair sailing all in our new adventures at the release from Alpha.
  5. Hello Admin and Devs, I know that it is probably to late to ask for this but could you consider offering the Le Requin and Pandora in trader trim? The Le Requin would make an awesome smuggler, minus a bunch of guns and with much less crew, my research tells me they did that when they were out of work as raiders. The Pandora would make an awesome shallow water 3 mast trader for those tired of sailing a brig. Thanks for an awesome time and myself and Seadog Wade are looking forward to many more adventures on these wonderful seas.
  6. What an awesome and amazing bunch of people. I'm SO proud to know you and sail with you. Petty Officer Wade gives a might WOOF of salute to you. Fair sailing all.
  7. Thanks Papillon. I'll try that tomorrow because there was simply too much to do this evening. I'll send Seadog Wade to Capt. Martin to get underway at once. If he can find an opening I'll probably join him and we can enjoy it together. I role play and both characters are entirely different. BTW. Admin, if you're listening, on Peace Server, it's extremely aggravating to not be able to talk to "Enemy Player" even if it's only me to myself. Please let us talk to each other on the Peace Server. Thanks. Fair sailing all.
  8. Yes Admin. Give them all the stuff they need to have a big bang bang shoot'em up free for all. Might have take some of the sting out of this wipe. Max the ranks so they can sail any ship they want. It would be a good gesture. Back to work. Fair sailing all.
  9. Yes Captains. I tried for 3 hrs last night to get through the ditch in the south with my Spanish character Capt. Martin. No luck. Today with my American character Capt. Ed in the north. No go. Seadog Wade even woofed it and growled it, but to no avail. I'll try the Bridgetown area tonight. If we can no longer get in then Admin and Ink need to give us a canal. Now back to work. Fair sailing all.
  10. Yes, please! I would happily pay $25.00 for the DLC. Galapagos would be AWESOME plus some rare occasional treasure. Now back to work.
  11. Regardless of how it turns out or what anyone else thinks or does, Capt. Ed and Seadog Wade are going to have a great time just going down to the sea in pixel ships and doing business on the great waters. I will probably be mostly on the Peace server because it best fits all the other things going on in my life. Not as much thrill but I can't have everything. Congratulations and best sailing all.
  12. Ahoy Captains and Admin from Capt. Ed and Seadog 2nd Class Wade. At work so we can't elaborate. Please Admin and Devs, open the Pacific with a proper canal, turn on the fishing and bottles, place a few cities and towns. Too beautiful a place to waste. I'd even pay for it as a DLC. For the War server 3 strategically placed canals would be good so no one clan could block it. Have to get back to work. Fair sailing and best of luck on the release. I'm looking forward to it.
  13. THANK YOU OP for awesome write up. THANK YOU all other posters for your wonderful comments. This pretty much fits my wonderful experience with this game. I've had to slow a bit because of real life but OH I love this game. I do have a vivid imagination and role play so when I'm playing I'm someone I could never be in real life. I grew up on the coast and was in the US Coast Guard. This is as close as I can come to being at sea again and I love it. I've played over 2 years now and have over 2000 hours with my 2 characters, have purposefully drug my feet so as to not level up, I'll get there soon enough. I play as a merchant Captain and only now am going to get ready to arm and be able to fight my ship. At this time it's actually become worthwhile to defend, if you have the time, rather than just run when you're a merchant Captain. It's going to be lots of fun learning what I've avoided for the last 2 years because at that time it was more fun to run and be chased. Anymn, keep it up and please write again when you're inspired to do so. To Admin, on the PVE server......PLEASE let us talk to one another. Fair sailing all and thanks again from Captain Ed and Seadog 3rd class Wade.
  14. Hello and Happy Holidays Jodgi, Captains and Devs, I love the free cam and don't want it taken away like it was before. I use it a lot when I sail around just looking at stuff. My suggestion to make it fun and safe (Not a cheat) is.....No com or attack allowed for 15 minutes while and after using the free cam. Anyone getting on a third party app to get around this is a CHEAT, pure, plain and simple!!!! Ban him/her from the game 'cause we don't need people like that making it miserable for all the good, fun loving players. I was just now going to say "Don't let cheaters steal our free cam." But I changed my mind. We should use it before leaving port. Like sending up a balloon to scan around. If we see the scallywags, call in the Navy after them. Then there's righteous PVP and fun for all. Fair sailing all and the BEST OF ALL NEW YEARS TO ALL. From Captain Ed and Seadog 3rd class Wade.
  15. Ahoy Admin, Devs and Captains, Thanks Admin for the info about the new upcoming patch and, though I really don't need it, the sextant as it will make things easier. Having read above an idea to put the European map on the PVE server and swap PVP and PVE every so often I thought I should add my 2 cents. I absolutely love the idea. One thing I have noticed is how stagnant it gets when the RVR has been done and things get slow and boring on the PVP server. PVE server has sooo needed content and I realize that the small dev team can't do every thing and have to focus on one thing at a time and hopefully get it right. If players could have their home port on each server secure so they wouldn't lose everything at flip then it should work. This would be a way to keep things fresh and dynamic for all styles of players. Noobs are able to learn without getting squashed, PVErs don't have to get involved in PVP unless they want to and PVP gets much more to do with new ports to conquer every few months. PVP just might get more converts because some PVErs might sail over to the PVP side for a little excitement and like it. The PVPer who has gotten tired of it for awhile can sail back to the PVE server for a rest and to do his trading and crafting unhindered. I know there would need to be a lot worked out to make it work but I think it would be worth it to keep things fresh and satisfy both types of players. Fair sailing and Happy Holidays. Now back to work.
