  1. Yet, we all know there are nations out there who purposely "test" every little thing there is to game the mechanics. You may not be one of them, but you know there are those kind who do and don't report what they find. Instead they keep it to themselves so they're the only ones who know the tricks.
  2. @erelkivtuadrater I get your point that there was some diversity, but look at your first image. Nearly all Bucs won, and the diverse side got wasted. Look at the second image, almost all Bucs kicked the ass of the diverse side again. So my point still stand, no matter the port BR diversity does not win when the other team is filled with the meta. The only way to have diversity in port battles, imho, is to limit the BR per rate. Or maybe I'm missing your point still. If 45 point ports allowed only 1600 BR for 1st rates you would have a choice of 1 L'Ocean, or 1 Santi, or 2 Victories. (Same
  3. @Gregory Rainsborough Nice write-up and port map with overall strategy drawings. Bur next time it would be awesome to see the fleet arrangements with the ingame map (no health bars). Get your people on it.
  4. @erelkivtuadrater So, if the BR was lowered to whatever redii is suggesting, what ships would people bring? Still as many 1st rates as possible. I've watched many vids on port battles over the years, and I've never seen diversity of ships in port battles, no matter what the BR was. Sure, you see the occasional 3rd or 4th rates, but looking at their rank will explain why. (Of course, this does not apply to Russian PB fleets, or the new LAMA fleets. In those you see a wide variety because their ships are impenetrable. Every one of their battles looks the same, enemy side all sunk or captured and
  5. BUMP! JACKS is full of good peeps. They are always helpful with their members and other pirates. The only times I've not seen a JACKS member answer a call for help is when they're not online or already busy helping elsewhere.
  6. This is how I seem to get dumped into Loki Battles nearly 80% of the time...empty hp all around. #FixLokiBattles
  7. Yes, with escorts of mixed rates. In fact, #MixedFleets please, @admin
  8. The 2 times I used it so far, I was dumped into an already sinking AI. First time I was able to get a full broadside off in Swedish Surprise vs a Danish Wasa. The other time I was 10 seconds from fully sunk. I should've ss'd them both.
  9. Come back, you!

      I will be on 2nyt around 8pm EST and get back to it. I've been in a lot of pain after working on the off-grid cabin each day that I've just basically laid around trying to sleep. But I'm finished with all the heavy work on it, so I'm not hurting as much. See you 2nyt if you're there.

      Oi, I'll be on again 2nyt, but during the days I'm Rehtzar (ID: 26846361) in Conqueror's Blade Osteria Camp. Come join me :)

      Dude, this is rough. I'm officially addicted. Got invited to BloodOath House. If you play too I can get you in there. :)

  10. @admin Seeing your YT channel has 4k subs, it would be nice to see regular vids pop back up giving us update info, future plans, ships, etc.
  11. I like this guy; mostly unbiased and great details you can't find unless you read many journals.
  12. 3,600 hours, maybe 20% afk sailing missions, still sink 80% of the time in PvP, enjoyed every minute of it, despite getting upset at ganks, and being upset with zergs, and being upset with crafting XP being changed, and being upset with Frontlines not being implemented as I feel it should be, and being upset with multiple other things. I've taken a couple weeks off from time to time, but I always come back, because there is nothing else like it. #Newbs4Life
  13. Just found this....guess I'm late to the party, but cool to watch. Video Series 3d model video
  14. I think alliances could work again if it applied to port battles only and didn't prevent OW battles. Already we can choose to join any weaker side of OW battles. So there's technically an alliance there, IF we choose to join that battle. We just need the ability to help in Port Battles. The voting system got fekt by alt clans who screwed the votes. And most of these alt clans were just trader alts. If it were somehow tied to other activities like PvE and PvP kills or damage, then perhaps it might work. I would make the kills count too heavy, because ppl are already in a weak ship....but i
