  1. regional refits for ship crafting be nice as well. maybe craft SOLs only in regionnal capitals.
  2. also, when can we expect tournament and duel rooms?
  3. a few things: - hostility grinding is boring. A new system must be tested or there should be multiple ways to get a pb set (maybe flag maybe economic grind or something else). - no reward beside victory marks, which are useless. chest are a thing, and it is nice, but doubloons are better as it would finance new SOLs helping to rebuild fleet and finance new invasions. - capturing a port from an enemy clan/nation does not really have an economic impact. gaining a port should grant a bonus to revenue to the clan while loosing clan should get a negative income for a few days (like 3). - circle battle for points are ok, but some new kind of new battle type would be nice. Maybe a only one circle to capture (defend or loose pb) or annihilation battle (like patrol zone, except when u leave circle, you don't die but are kicked out of battle, side with most br or ship killed win battle). - timers are an issue, it limits pb possibilities. maybe increase cost by 10 - screening is an issue, it is too easy to screen a fleet at the moment. port battle fleet should be safe to enter pb. they made the effort to grind hostility. - frigate only port battle be fun or 4th rate max - arrange OW fight between clans / fleet for a ladder (take mission and go to a place at x time, taken a day a prior), reward is hostility point you can use on a port to avoid grinding it but get instant pb
  4. niagara > all shallow ships. DLC or not. Just saying.
  5. expanding warehouse slot prices have been reviewed? it seems fairly expensive at the moment: 360k reals for the first 8 extra slot. @admin

  11. Currently meta grants too much an advantage to the holder of the weather gage, and a good fleet commander can keep it as long as the wind shift is not too punishing. It results in draw games where the leeward fleet does not engage due to the incapacity to close the distance and / or if willing to engage is at risk due to hull rolling. This is the current situation. Although it is normal for the leeward to have exposed hull, it should also be the only one able to use its full firepower. The weather gage fleet should not be able to use its bottom deck precisely due to rolling. I suggest to implement exactly that. Past a certain angle upwind the weather gage fleet must have a penalty to not be able to shoot bottom deck, UNLESS they drop sails to battle resulting in reduced rolling. basically if the origin of the wind is 0, anything between 15:75 degrees and -15:-75 degrees should cause enough rolling to disable bottom decks and limit upper deck capacity unless there is not enough sails out to make the ship roll. Expected result: - leeward fleet gets more firepower than weather gage fleet on a head on line fight - leeward fleet is more at risk and exposed due to hull roll - if weather gage fleet decide to drop sails to battle to maximize firepower, leeward fleet gets a chance to take the wind or to close in to engage in close quarters If such mechanic is implemented fights will be more oriented toward the angles of 60:120 and -60:-120 with more dynamic fights were each fleet can get the weather gage multiple times in a fight, less running and more tactic option than we currently have. I see only bonus to the fight mechanics with this. @admin what do you think?
  12. Just wondering if we are going to get rum ration back for those of us who got deprived of the knowledge. I think quite q few of us lost this knowledge while we had it. And before patch it was guaranteed no knowledge loss! When can we expect the knowledge back? @admin@Ink

    Interestingly enough I find your quote of what message to send, more questionable than liq's word. especially the "chill" word. To any native speaker his words are not offensive at all. however asking someone to chill can be demeaning. Did you consider messaging or warning him before perma ban? don't think you did.

    Every single soul in this forum knows how constructive admin is, especially as of late and in this peculiar case...We also all very well know his tendencies to overacted and make sarcastic comments on some people's posts. We also, never have had any feedback on hetwill's investigation for abuse of power. We know it is a tough job, moderating, but when you do wrong you have to face it and make it right again. nobody will blame you, but don't be ridiculously stubborn. In this peculiar case, liq is not the one appealing, it is us who wants admin to lift a ban he set due to overreaction and lack of arguments. ban me if you like. At the end of the day, when you are the one in charge and know you wronged someone and won't take responsibility, censorship is the way to go.

    This is tavern, not national news. same player try again. All you are doing is throwing fuel on fire. On a side note, permanently banning a player means if he has to report a bug, issue or someone doing him wrong, it can't be reported in supported / tribunal. I believe this one was thought very deeply when pushing the button...
  16. I still don't have my rum ration ship knowledge while some do @admin i bet it is related to whether it has been learn from a legacy book or not as it appears only very old account have it. remove it for everyone or give it back to the rest of us.

    Your Captain visually positioned on ship during battle

    go play some other well known arcade pirate game. thank you, good bye.
  18. @admin the other day i did a mission in enemy capitals. For some reasons it fell like i was being shot by doubles, and my reload and turn rate was not amazing. When I went back to a neutral port after the missions I noticed all the ship knowledge had been reset. I had to set ship knowledge again. Also the loot was ridiculously bad for the risk taken sailing in enemy capital. (elevating screw and about 40hull repairs) Is that normal?
  19. facts are, good players don't need books to beat the common average player even when said average player has all books. Books only really matter between two players of the same skill. New players will die no matter what. They will learn from it and improve, or keep sinking. Either way facing a vet with books or not wont make even a slight difference. I personally don't care if i have to grind again or not, i'll grind in pvp either way and buy books from carebears. Thanks for the information @admin, appreciate it. Also @admin don't listen too much to the economy and reward negative comments. Everything looks much better now and it is fine if the game is more challenging and or difficult economically wise. I just need ports to be a static image rather than 3D, at least on low graphic settings or as an option in graphics. (don't even need to see ship selected)
  20. the best return on investment: iron ingot and iron fittings are gone. I am screwed, is all I have to say.

    Never give up French!

    you guys need to forget about nations and this shit. different clans, different interests. that is what RvR is. it is so sad to see people being like oh hey i am diplo of this nation. On what ground? who acknowledged you? this is not targeted to anyone, merely facts and observation.
  22. like bots are a threat. I am not a trader so I am not saying this for myself. However I can already see the grief coming. having a main fighter ship wont change anything. die and you will die until you are naked.
