  1. Nuestra Senora del Pilar was built in 1731, so it is within the timeframe of the game (since Wapen and Ingermanland are even older), and stylewise it fits in, too. It may be called a Galleon, but it does not look like a classical galleon at all. But I do like the Pieter Paulus, too. I do not quite see a balancing problem due to launching date, despite some ships may be mildly frustating (like Connie due to her rating). Therefore, I want both ships to make their way into the game.
  2. I second this.
  3. Since I was present as Charles Peregrine Graeme, I want to exercise my right of self defense and make a statement on the yester events, even thought not speaking for the rest of us automatically. When you engage a larger event prize ship with no chance of defeating or capping it, others are still free to join that battle for 2 minutes, like always. A parking lot is not your personal property, just because your friend stands in it, trying to block another car trying to park. Green on green damage is and always will be illegal, and it was not executed in that case. But the joining faction does not have to follow your orders or your tactical approach to solve the situation in that particullar or any other action. And I do not believe I have to explain this. When you do ram a ship, you cannot just say he is "blocking" you. In such a case it is just your own poor sailing. Even on the screenshot it looks quite obvious that we wanted to do a stern-rake-and-board-combination. So why are you running into a ship that is doing an obvious thing by holding its position whilst boarding/gunning crew down? Even if you do lose your ship during a more reasonable manner than trying to delay others in boarding or whatever you were thinking you were doing, it does not belong to anyone afterwards. Maybe it would have been handed back to you, if you not pissed us of by sinking the Wreker while it was down to 60ish crew without any other reason than pissing us off. You lost it at your own expense, we manned it after it stopped being your ship. Best way for us would have been to just sink it, to have it out of the way, but we were considering to hand it back to you afterwards. So the definition of griefing is to purposefully shooting or otherwise sabotaging your teammates. We clearly communicated what we were about to do. We clearly stated that we were going to board that Wreker, what by public means involves getting close to a ship, blocking it (the Wreker in this case). You, of course, do not have to follow our tactical approach as a reverse conclusion. But you did know that some big ships were about to get very close to the Wreker. So your tactical approach was to, I don't know, hello kitty it, maybe we are lucky enough not to ram into the almost motionless setup of ships, that are present during a multi-boarding-action most of the time, while we are speeding along it at point-blank-range. And that is the most flattering interpretation I can do in this case. Of course you have the right to chose such a poor tactical approach. But if it goes wrong, it may be seen as borderline-griefing, since you, by your actions, were sabotaging our attempts of boarding the Wreker, by getting yourself boarded due to poor sailing, blocking and ramming our boarding ships out of a personal or momentary grudge against us. So yes everyone, please do analyse this as thoroughly as you can. Then you will most likely have a laughter and dismiss that charge.
  4. Don't be mad about him, it is not his fault that he only knows three words, and that there is barely another way way to arrange them logically.
  5. Due to the arangement of the deck arrangements and heights, and the bigger "belly" of the Rose, I would say ingame is original Surprise. But I do not have any proof, just guessing. Maybe a Hybrid? But I am backing your desire of a remake of her model, since already some redos were done (Vic, Connie), and I really do want a corvette modell in the Connie classics quality. ❤️
  6. I love this. The combination of a galleon and a more modern shape, with a more modern stern gallery. Beautiful ship. Like the stats, too, want to add that with that hull shape, following the logic of the game (Wapen), it should get a 3.-ish turnrate, making it kind of a trading Wapen, able to fend of most of the faster ships, when they are not captained quite well.
  7. maybe same reason like that one? Except for the fullsize epic drama it caused that time between gb and the swedes, off course.
  8. @admin @Ink? Are there any plans on adding some paints for leo?
  9. The only in-game-3rd rate it does actually rival is the United States. It is simply a ship that does not really belong in 3rd or 4th, even though it shares more characteristics with the 4th in-game-4th-rated ships. Only thing it can do better than ingame 3rd rates is running away, which is sad, because it is a beautiful ship. Thing is, if it was in 4th rate, it would not be as overpowered as Redoutable and Implacable in 3rd, so why not put it back in 4th, make it a valuable ship again instead of letting it rot in a tier it can hardly compete in?
  10. ... who never set a sail in the caribbean. But I would still like new nations for the game, when they come with the new maps they were present at in the era of the game.
  11. I could live with any nation in the game if we divide the game in "Main Nations" and "Liege Nations", give that 2 poor polish dudes at least some players that cannot gank them. Along with that some diplomacy system coming back to the game would be quite nice. Thinking a chinese nation should not be part of a 18.-19.-century carribean setting is not narrow-minded, it is a one of some valid opinions even along your own I have to admit, oriented on what certain people expect of a game. But calling people narrow-minded because they have another opinion just because it is more conservative than yours seems a bit... well, narrow-minded as well to me.
  12. I would like it if ships in game for being called a Temeraire-class-ship-of-the-line for example, rather than 20 players sailing the one and only Redoutable.
  13. Only with the prolific charger DLC.
  14. Well, some polishing would include 1. Ship names on the models to be removed, and the ships not to be called for example a "Bellona" or "Redoutable", but a "Bellona-class-SOL" or "Temeraire-Class-SOL" , 2. The option to name it out of a pool of names, that may be extendet by proposal, to prevent missuse (I really don't want to see a "HMS K*ssmy*ass" or something comparable) 3. A Rework of the NPC-naming-system. I am quite tired of encountering russian SOL-Admiral Alfonso Batista. 1.+2. would make the game more sandboxy, and 3. more immersive.
