  1. Not to defend the devs but you do realize the difference between an update patch and a hotfix? If not, compare the content of a patch to that of a hotfix, a hotfix typically fixes less than half a dozen minor items compared to a patch that can contain well over a dozen NEW items and/or alterations to existing components.
  2. Maybe they are waiting for Halloween...Trick or Treat....perhaps both.
  3. I think there are several other issues that should be addressed before a new aspect is added to further compound current issues.

    knowledge slot bug

    I guess I wasnt, i set the ship as main and it worked. Though i am sure i have reset them before on other ships without them being active. Thank you.
  5. I have achieved enough experience to get the 2nd slot on the wasa but whenever i attempt to slot a knowledge into it the slot reverts back to being empty. Any idea as to why?
  6. How exactly does this apply to the current issue? That quote was in regards to a multiple ship engagement not a one vs one. Please keep things in context to the discussion and not try to bend an unrelated situation to try to force it to be applicable. The admin comment was towards someone joining a side for the purpose of locking out anyone from joining that side and then just sailing away from the engagement. How does that relate to this exactly? Screening in relation to a port battle is not just attempting to prevent ships from reaching the port battle. It includes the screening fleet of the other nation and preventing them from engaging friendly vessels regardless if they are the port battle fleet or screening ships. People need to stop trying to exclude things because they do not support your viewpoint. @Knuddel What your intentions were are irrelevant to this because you are not the person being accused. The purpose of a tribunal is to determine if the intentions or actions of the accused are in violation of the rules. The problem here is that you got screened out of a port battle which means that 24x7 did his job. That is all there is to it. He tagged you, he fired at you, he inflicted damage. End of story.
  7. First thing is to test it on the home network, second is to make sure it is installed on the D drive not C. Next check the game settings and put them all to low to get a baseline. I have a laptop that I play the game on that has only a i7-3630QM processor (2.4ghz) and while it does not run exceptionally well, it runs well enough to do pvp and missions on.

  9. That is a comment aimed at the players reaction, not the developers. For over 3 years now the use of alts was not only acceptable by the admins but encouraged for the purpose of spying on an enemy nation. This argument towards the use of alts has come up more times than can be counted and every time it is dismissed because there is no and will be no mechanic to prevent them. If you try to banish multiple connections from one IP address in order to prevent alt usage, you will also banish households that have more than one user (of which I know several). This alone will prevent anything from being done because anything that prevents a player from joining the server without cause will cause a pretty nasty backlash (grounds for legal action being the least of the problems). This is not the first game I have played that has been affected by the use of alts, but the same reason for why they can not be prevented remains and over the years with advancements in technology it has become much easier to actually operate multiple accounts. But alts still have one weakness, one person can only operate one ship effectively at a time. If you manage to engage a players main and his alt at the same time it will become apparent instantly which account is actually active. That has been true for over a decade back when I played Freelancer in 2003. The only thing the devs could do would be to switch Enemy Player back to displaying the players name, then you would know if you are engaging both at the same time (once you discover which accounts are linked)
  10. The half second pause occurs every time someone joins a battle instance, always has for quite a time now.
  11. The thing I find funny is that 80% of the time the sunken enemy is directly upwind of you. This is the main reason why sometimes I just leave as i will not be able to get to the ship making only 2 knots before the damn thing sinks.
  12. I am beginning to think that the only way in which there will be a player driven option for crafting bonuses is if it is offered as a DLC. The question then becomes how many players will have issue with it as it may be viewed as changing the game to one of pay to win. The current DLC ships area already much weaker when compared to ships of equal rank if you just view it by the numbers. I think that if the only future DLC's are restricted to just ships that the game will not progress based on the abilities of the current ships as a guide and that some of the ships cost as much as buying the game which I have never seen any company do. Most of the DLC's that I have seen for other games are about 1/8th to 1/5th the price of the game itself.
  13. Would you still penalize them if the reason they left a nation was because it became to toxic to stay in? Your idea works fine for those that think of themselves more than the nation. But in cases where betrayal and backstabbing become the standard or where a clan leader believes that the clan is a dictatorship and not a democracy your idea actually punishes them and forces them to stay (or quit the game entirely).
  14. As Teutonic stated, screening is a delay tactic that is used to deny an attacker from reaching their intended target. This can be either a port battle or a trade ship. While you as a "victim" may not agree with the tactic, your intended target may view it otherwise. So I guess the same advice applies to raiders as it does to traders, if you don't want to get tagged bring a friend.
  15. Wouldn't this in effect turn the port into a limited available to all without the indicator that it is being done? Or would it require the port to be switched to available to all but now you have a potential hostile group crafting ships and/or gathering resources from said port? I think Wraith should probably expand on his thoughts here of just how this would benefit the nation that owns the port without causing harm at the same time.
