  1. They kind off did, as far as I have heard from Cid and Bastey, although they obviously have more info about this, since I didnt join NATO
  2. KRAKE (not Prussia) messed up with attacking Russia right before Sweden bailed out. KRAKE could have not joined the war and we could have still attacked the Brits and then there wouldnt be a problem for us at all.
  3. Hahahaha 😄 Where did the "little clans" touch you? Perhaps they would have been more interested in helping you with your skirmishes against the Dutch and ultimatily the war with Russia, if you didnt already have such a reputation in Prussia like abandoning the nation, taking all the pride and excluding other (smaller) clans. Perhaps they would have been more willing to help if you were more honest and didnt just declare war on nations without discussing it in council meetings. 'oh yea guys we just made SdC neutral and will take Les Cayes, please come help' 'so guys we are at war with Russia now, good luck, I am going off' And even still, I think those "little clans" were still quite willing to help you in your 'glorious' adventures, some pbs at Les Cayes were almost entirely RGK and other clans and Cumana was half RGK, just a few examples. But it was never enough. And in the end you abandon Prussia again, after not being able to swallow your pride knowing you were wrong and we, "the little clans" were right.
  4. As far as I can read from that suggestion, it wasnt supposed to be between nation but within the nation, because with current mechanics if one clan in a nation wants to give one of their ports to another clan they have to make it neutral, which brings risk of other nations flipping it first and loses development in the port. Also now clans who leave one nation and own even just a few ports cripple the nation they leave even more, because either their ports go neutral and other nations can grab them, or they use their old clan as an alt clan and keep their old ports that way. Of course it isnt historical that nations would transfer ports between eachother, but neither is a governor of some sort going away meaning inmediate loss of the port they owned
  5. No interactions? Sending us ultimatums isnt an interaction? Atleast you are honest about not caring about Prussia, by the time KRAKE finally decided to help you against Russia, a week later you buggered off, hoping Russia would be too busy with KRAKE to punish you more than they did.
  6. With this new mechanic, will players from other clans still be able to help the clan doing the hostility in the hostility orders?
  7. Decrease the gun pounder of the guns on the forts for shallow ports currently the 42pds cannons forts have equipped at shallow ports are too strong compared with shallow ships hull and mast strenght. the forts already shoot quite fast due to the many cannons they have and are also very accurate, leading to alot of masts falling off very easily. At certain ports like Morgan's Bluff practically all the points are covered by op forts, making such portbattles being favoured way too much towards the defender. A significant lowering of the pounders would improve the chances for the attacker but would still play a part in the portbattle in favour for the defender.
  8. I am not Italian, but just as a note: While I don't really agree with adding even more nations, adding Italy itself as a nation doesnt really make sense at all, due to the fact that the nation state we know as Italy only came to existance in 1861. A (little bit) more historical nation would be either: Venice (personal favorite, very nice flag) Genoa Papal states
  9. Make RvR clan based instead of nation based Why current nation RvR doesnt work: As we have seen recently with Britian, nations can experience national disputes to even civil wars without a clear solution to it other than bullying away your internal enemy No defined alliance is possible, only 'hand-shake agreements', which can be too easily broken and lead to very easy backstabs and that sort of toxic diplomacy. Without alliances, smaller nations can be too easily stomped by the bigger. leading to the ultimate zerging by players from smaller nations to bigger nations. Gives the option to deny your enemy content by joining their nation, meaning they cant attack you anymore. Why clan based: allows clans in the same nation to fight eachother. This eliminates the 'hiding under the same flag as your enemy' system we have now that some clans use. Will give a direct option for clans to solve national disputes between clans. will allow a good and working return of the alliance system. broaden the use of the clan alliance system and not only keep it in the nation, but also for clans in other nations. F.E: Clan X from France allies themselves with clan Y from Sweden. So returning the old alliance system, but without the flaws of stationary alliances (because you have many clans with changing motives and goals) and without the flawed voting system (could be with officers and diplos only in clan voting) Alliances would give smaller clan alliances/nations a chance to unite and fight the bigger clans alliances/nations together, leading to a more equal playing field. All in all, it will improve the diplomatic aspect of RvR in NA as well.
  10. But how can you just expect people to change reviews on Steam because they would like more action from the developers team? You do realise that 90% of the negative reviews are players who used to put alot of time in this game but have long stopped, and simply wont change their review, because they dont care anymore? This means that even if those 10% change their reviews as you like, it will still stay on mixed, and all that will still be for nothing And frankly, promising rewards for more positive reviews is against the rules of Steam, as clearly stated on their SteamWorks website for developers: Let me be clear, I am not saying that you are violating those rules, but I think the amount of action of developers for a product shouldnt be the reviews but the income from the product and the additional dlcs, which seem to be going nicely, seeing from the Redout dlc for example. And Steam seems to agree with me here What reviews can be usefull for though, is instead of alienating those reviews, taking those reviews in consideration and seeing how you can use those reviews to improve the game even further. Reviews are opinions, and opinions shouldnt be a barrier for progress, but a stimulant for progress in the correct direction.

    Looking at the part where you talk about Prussia, it doesnt really make sense, because you keep mistaking all of Prussia for KRAKE alone. 😄 It was only KRAKE, LI0NS and their Chinese alt clan who were at war with Russia, the remaining clans, RGK, TO, ROVER, PGP, werent. that makes quite a difference. that is the whole reason southern Prussian pbs werent contested because all these ports were either LI0NS, KRAKE or GHAN and these clans took us of the friend list. Btw, LLAMA isnt the alt clan of KRAKE, its the new clan of KRAKE, main accounts of KRAKE have been moved to Russia.
  12. Dear captains of the Caribbean! The great Kingdom of Prussia has come to know difficult times! With the violent departure of major clans from our proud nation we are searching for every able captain to defend Prussian holdings in the Caribbean from many enemies! And once in Prussia, which clan better to enlist than ROVER! SeaRovers enjoy a well known and established name on the seas. Primarily known for our love and specialisation in 6th and 7th rate ships, we scourge the Caribbean under our well know motto: ‘Death by a Thousand Cuts’ Now we invite you to be part of those thousand cuts by enlisting to our clan colours! And together, we shall aim to protect Prussia through Iron and Blood!
  13. What does this mean exactly? That a clan can now make all their ports 55 point ports? And also, if you are trying to prevent toxicity in chats, instead of removing the chat function entirely and turning it into Rocket League with ships, maybe appoint some more moderators? I havent seen a green name in months.
  14. The free city of Mantua is once again open for all! Feel free to use the port in privateer fleet hunting and all other endeavours you have in mind! More repairs will be shipped at once to supply the growing demand and your local merchants will keep searching for juicy deals they can offer you in Mantua! May captains of all kind be welcome once more in the free city of Mantua! The city of hospitality, free trade and open mindedness!
  15. Its no excuse, you mess with us, we mess with you. Today there were many Dutch screeners at Carupano and you decided to flip another Prussian port, doesnt seem very dead to me. I have said this a quazillion times now but we declared neutrality in the ongoing conflict between Russia and Sweden, I dont hear any Britian or VP in that sentence. We have never said that we wanted to kill the VP and we are not planning on it either. If we do accidentaly some SNOW cleaning you wont hear me crying though. Saying I know them well doesnt really narrow it down very much to be fair, but sure.
