  1. I take it your comment is ironic? ­čśë Humour me for taking it literally, as an intellectual exercise. In a regular, open world engagement, the only thing I'd call "cheating" is actually hacking the game's code, so that it behaves in a way the "cheated" cannot foresee. I have not been subject to that, so all I can do is speculate: it may be possible to tweak things like thickness, turn rates, penetration, reload rates, ... In all other cases where I get my ass handed to me, this will be down to factors that, in my dim view of the world, do not constitute cheating: I got ganke
  2. Saha!, vengeance was mine tonight! ­čśŐ To be fair, mine was the tankier ship, and I had the good fortune to hit home with a chain salvo early on. Again, a tense but sportsmanlike fight, with enough time for a bit of banter in chat. 'Ta Griswold.
  3. I agree. But duels are a good way to practice good manners, since you only have an opponent to talk to. No distraction from fleet coordination.
  4. We had our first duel yesterday, and it was very good fun. As you can see, I got the seat of my pants handed to me, in a sportsmanlike manner. I really like playing the game this way.
  5. Hoch gesch├Ątzte Kapit├Ąne, wir laden ganz herzlich all diejenigen von Euch, denen der Sinn nach zivilisierten Gefechten mit anderen Spielern im Sinne des guten Sportsgeistes steht, zu diesem Discord ein: The Gunroom - Discord ( https://discord.gg/mTzUuVJ ) Wir legen gemeinsam Wert auf ehrenwertes Benehmen gegenseitigen Respekt und krachende Breitseiten gut gesegelter Schiffe Wir freuen uns, Euch auf dem Ozean zu begegnen.

  6. Let me know if you would like me to post this to the German-speaking sub-section (native speaker). Happy to proof-read the Spanish, if you have need.
  7. May I suggest we move the tactical and mechanical discussion to another thread? To keep this one focused on RegularK's idea.
  8. Good thinking, that man. I had jotted down similar thoughts privately a while ago. Might as well make them public here. I'd be happy if you could provide feedback: A Statement on Gentlemanly Conduct, for and between Masters and Commanders, Pursuing their Divers Endeavours in the Caribbean Seas (I) I am content with being Content. (II) I endeavour to provide a challenging fight. (II.1) If my squadron is vastly superior, I will solicit my fellow captains to withdraw some vessels. I will not insist on odds being even, but I will strive that our opponent ha
  9. Oh, definitely. For the sailing warships expertise, for the period flavour, and the buddy-movie-narrative. I finished the series about 5 years, and enjoyed it to the last book.
  10. In Seeferkel's name, we would like to thank all captains who paid their respect. A pleasure to sail with you all. We will post screenshots as a memento.
  11. Thank you for organising this, Despe, I will be there.
  12. Despe postet Ort und genaue Zeit am Sonntagabend im Laufe des Tages. Despe will update this thread with a place and exact time for Sunday evening soon.
  13. I like the idea very much. Tumbado or (and?) La Tortue on Sunday evening sounds like a good time. I will be there in a black Pirate Frigate, I remember Seeferkel sailing such a boat.
  14. Wir haben heute erfahren, dass Seeferkel, Clan Leader der LLAMAs, am vergangenen Donnerstag verstorben ist. Ich selbst bin als Preusse und Russe mit Seeferkel gesegelt, und habe ihn kennen und sch├Ątzen gelernt als jemanden, der Naval Action mit Leidenschaft spielt, und kein Blatt vor den Mund nimmt. Damit ist er sicherlich hin und wieder angeeckt, aber f├╝r meinen Teil mochte ich seine Kodderschnauze und seinen schr├Ągen Humor gerne. Seeferkel wird mir fehlen. ­čśö
  15. Ich denke, der zweite Punkt ist der wichtigere: "Mechanismen [...], die es Nationen schwerer macht, sich solch starke Positionen zu erspielen". Ein Reset ohne die Einf├╝hrung von ebensolchen wird meines Erachtens nur dazu f├╝hren, dass sich das System von einem ausgeglichen(er)en Startzustand erneut zu einem Gleichgewicht bewegt, in dem eine Nation (welche auch immer) dominiert. Insofern scheint es mir einen Versuch wert, solche Mechanismen einzuf├╝hren und erst einmal zu kucken, ob sich ein neuer Gleichgewichtszustand einpegelt. Falls nicht, w├Ąre die zweite Manipulation ein Reset.
