  1. They can, they just can't fill it with many good players. US have filled 25k PBs recently though not sure on exact numbers of other two.
  2. The high BR of port battles probably means they just don't bother as they know they can't fill it.
  3. It was stolen from you originally, take it as a compliment as imitation is a form of flattery
  4. The challenge was getting people to use it as with all new systems there was resistance in place to doing it. Just like the GB Discord which everyone uses daily now. No more "Council meetings" either. Phew.
  5. Signups was implemented during the constant Spanish attacks on GB when SNOW had Little Cayman. I know it was used to some degree while I was away but HAVOC switched to GB at the same time I came back from doing irl stuff. GB will be fine.
  6. I don't think you know how we organise these PB's, 'cus if you did, you wouldn't be holding one clan above all the others. It has and always will be a collaborative effort. BASTD beat the Russians several times at Carriacou if I recall, not a single member of HAVOC was there.
  7. You have to pay doubloons to destroy stuff. Don't see many people pouring tens of thousands of doubloons out of spite.
  8. Due to the ease, large rewards and time it takes, trading has now become obsolete in favour of delivery missions. There is no risk in delivery missions, put your stuff in a capped tbrig and off you go. Trading is now for those privileged few with alt accounts as it's not worth trading any more. The knock on effect has been a reduction in trade which has seen most ports, that used to at least break even, not break even. A Delivery missions need reducing OR trading needs to see an increase in profitability for the time and money spent. A possible alternative would be to siphon profits made from ports of other clans within the same capital so that those who benefit from the county capital timer pay for it in some way. This does seem unnecessarily complicated though. A demonstration. Below is the SNOW port spreadsheet for port profits. Compare this with some of the previous data. For the first time the other day people were trying to NOT own Bluefields, a port that in the past has been highly desirable. That should demonstrate how much of a pain it is to pay for ports. Sure it's a couple of runs in tbrigs but that's time better spent doing something else, like killing each other. I like trading, but others it seems do not, so incentives should be created as to generate profit in ports so clans benefit in reals from ownership.
  9. Russian flip of Portobelo was a success as they instantly flipped port. BAIT arrived on the scene before the the Russians could withdraw. BAIT smashed REDS who then retreated to join NN who were then attacked by a group of BASTD, HAVOC, SNOW and one WAVE. Hero of the hour was Gene in the lynx.
  10. Labour contracts should be cheaper, how they used to be. Rather than one, you should get ten. That would solve this problem.
  11. Forts can do nothing if you're in a smaller ship, sail smaller ship, sit behind them, watch the fort kill them.
  12. All of them are open to friends We're poor so need all the help we can get.
  13. You're on our friends list, at no cost might I point out. The problem is that small clans don't want to even ask.
