  1. You'd have to smush together 'Empire At War' and 'The Old Republic MMO'. While the potential is admittedly tantalizing, it could go horribly, horribly wrong. Ideas CAN go too far....
  2. You hit the nail on the head with that. The payout for capping a 1st rate in a rear admiral mission is close to 300k. If you buy a victory for 3 million, you can make the investment back in 10 hours.
  3. Frigates in particular are a very poor barometer for ship prices. 5 blueprints drop off the frigate, one of them being the Ingermanland. Everyone and their grandmother was after that blueprint, and shipbuilders were conceiving exceptional frigates like couples in a log cabin with 2 feet of snow outside and nowhere to go. They were literally dumping exceptional frigates on the marketplace because they simply wanted enough money to cover the purchase of 4 mid-grade notes, so they could try again until the blueprint dropped. The money tap in this game is high at the moment. It's out
  4. I wish you the very best in moving past the hideous 'Caracas Fir Log Scandal' which is making headlines even as far as Mortimer Town. And by headlines I mean the 2-minute conversations that frequently happen in the men's room of the local rum tavern. Arrr did ya hear about the Mary Lou? Struck a sea turtle off the coast. Came apart at the seams, she did.
  5. Iceman and myself (don't call me Maverick) were talking about this topic in Teamspeak and we both agree this is the most appropriate movie quote to reference: We both like the idea that some people will never back down or accept defeat under any circumstance. We say good for them. Means they'll always be up for some good fights. What I've taken away from all this is that Spain either lacks the population or the coordination to defend such a large network of ports spread all over the map. Getting hit by the Dutch down in South America, the Brits in Central America and the Yuca
  6. Easy, they drank white rum. Anyways, if anyone didn't see the season finale's climatic battle, I recommend watching the last 15 minutes of the show. http://www.free-tv-video-online.me/player/vidbux.php?id=vmluy2ddx58n
  7. http://www.militaryarchitecture.com/index.php/Fortifications/18th-century-hospitaller-coastal-batteries.html And since I'm from Philadelphia... Carpenter's Hall Merchant Exchange First Bank of the United States
  8. The Building of the East Indiaman (3 Parts)
  9. Various Age of Sail documentaries found on Youtube and other sites. The Great Ships: The Frigates http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jc3_O5te0RM
  10. Tunderin Broadsides, the Irishman has arrived! Welcome to the forums, Nori me matey!!
  11. For those of us who remember 'Jaws'.....Farewell and Adieu has a much creepier context. Especially when sung by Quint.
  12. On the subject of possible ships to put in the game, are the 1820 US lineships under consideration? Example is the USS Delaware. Crew compliment: 820 men Armament 30 long 32-pound guns 30 medium 32-pound guns 2 x 32 pound carronades
