  1. As someone who reads the forums every day and contributes positively to discussions, I am so sad about this decision. I enjoy the forums as much as I enjoy the game! I see this, alas, as a move that will not help the game's survival...
  2. the current looting mechanic is my LEAST favorite part of this game - and most unrealistic. In real life, a ship would send ships boats to loot, take prisoners, and often speed the sinking of the beaten ship. It would seem to me that in game the closest ship to a beaten enemy could hit a loot button, see a temporary reduction in crew, have their own ship glide to a stop, and after 2 or 3 minutes recover their crew and the looted cargo. Their own ship would be helpless until the recovery timer ended. That would duplicate the sending and recovery of ships boats. Thoughts? If the devs even
  3. Here is the full experiment (German) and it shows that a cannonball did not penetrate lo/wo even at a 15 distance (starts at 30 mins) https://www.zdf.de/dokumentation/terra-x/die-korsaren-freibeuter-der-meere-100.html
  4. I wish we could access this documentary in English - anyone able to supply the link? Actually I question the experiment....the target wall is propped to upright using 2 flimsy braces, which would give more easily that of the target were part of a larger structure. Also, it is hilarious seeing them stuff grass down a muzzle for wadding. Makes one wonder how careful their other methods were...
  5. Ran off a hotspot for 2 hours with no disconnect. Returned to Frontier and have had more disconnects. Weirdly, in the PZ just now, disconnected near end of long battle, and when I recovered I was in the OW and had earned 0 xp. Which was the point of the PZ. I would have had at least enough for 10 combat medals. I may to quit this game (sigh)
  6. Yes, the problem still exists, but it gets better and worse sporadically. Two days ago I had 2 disconnects in 5 hours of play. Yesterday I must have had 20 or more in the same amount of time. I will run another game session tomorrow off a borrowed hotspot to confirm that the disconnects only happen when playing through my Frontier ISP...if that is the case, is there a course of action you recommend? And if I have disconnects while on a non-Frontier hotspot, what would that tell us?
  7. yes, it has been happening for two weeks now, but with such irregularity. Some sessions I will hardly disconnect at all; others I will disconnect so frequently that I give up on playing. Within the same session, I may go as long as 30 minutes without a disconnect, and then get several within 10 minutes. Should I contact my ISP provider? Wipe and reinstall my game? Ask for a different router? I have had other disconnects that happen when I first enter battle, or first enter the open world. Those disconnects take longer to recover from. These new ones, thankfully, happen but then I reconne
  8. Yes...after a full day yesterday of playing, with the disconnecting continuing randomly, I borrowed a friend's hotspot and the game did not disconnect for the full hour I ran the computer that way. My computer accesses the internet off a landline (Frontier), while the hotspot accessed the internet from a different provider - Verizon. What does that mean for resolving the problem? Thanks for your help!
  9. Disconnected 13 times in 2 hours - 10:35, 10:37, 10:49, 11:02....CST....you get the picture. If it was not for the rapid RECONNECTS, the game would be literally unplayable for me, after 3500 hour in game. I hope we can get this figured out...
  10. Played 90 minutes tonight, had 10 random, rapidly resolved disconnects. Makes the game almost unplayable now. Here are the first few reports: NAS 1404483 5.33 CST NAS 1404490 5:46 CST NAS 1404496 6:12 CST NAS 1404504 6:20 CST also it disconnected at 6.25, 6.32,6.45,6.57. 6/55 and 6.59 when I gave up. What other info would you need to help fix this?
  11. Just logged in and while in port disconnects began. NAS-1404021...my machine is in Dallas Tx area
  12. For the past week I have been having frequent, random disconnects, though teamspeak stays online, so the internet is not dropping. These disconnects happen under multiple conditions. I cannot force the disconnects by any particular action. I disconnect in open world sailing, in port, and in battle. When this happens, I can reconnect immediately and I reenter within a few seconds. I do lose the to-date battle summary (my hits etc are reset to zero) but I still get about the right amount of xp, and credit for ships I sank earlier in the fight. There have been a couple of days in this week

  14. Welcome to the game! There IS an excellent players guide, with a link in the forums. Maybe someone has the link offhand, and can post it for our friend here? Also, you need to hook up with a clan, and get on your nation's Teamspeak. Many seasoned players, myself included, enjoy orienting new players and many clans specialize in equipping, resourcing, and training new players. It is so much easier when you can talk with someone. If you happen to be USA, look me up in game.
  15. I suspect that there is a sweet spot with the snow where a reduction in its capabilities would make it enjoyable but not OP. Perhaps 5% reduction in speed? A tinkering with the sail profile? Seems to me the snow/stern camping is the single highest generator of complaints in the game atm.
