  1. I' d love that. I've just lost my LGV with a full cargo from a wreck to four Swedes. I was cautious but was caught just a couple of ship lengths from a friendly port. It makes the game too hard a grind for a loner like me. To build up then to lose it all.
  2. THERE are still people who are worried about another wipe after this one on 10-14 June. It is a game LAUNCH isn't it? Or am I wrong?
  3. 1) Is that the full release, or the beta? 2) 'This year' seems an unlikely projection for a development team. What are the actual time parameters?
  4. Merci beaucoup for a new game, especially predreadnoughts. Is there a date for release? E.g., 1 week hence; next month; this trimestre; this semestre; in summer; in autumn? this year?
  5. I am playing PvP. I would also like to go and play PvE. Would anyone please tell me, if I put in a player name and nation in PvE, will I lose my name and nation in PvP? Or, will I have two different names and nations (or the same), one in PvP and one in PvE?

    Durability

    Nothing's changed, by the look of it. Still not a playable game. I'm waiting for it to be released still! I bet there is only one developer working part-time. It's a phenomenal failure. I'll look in again in a couple of months.

    Durability

    The prices are higher now than they ever were. No reasons it looks like. Just make life hard instead of enjoying playing. I see that this game will continue to be unattractive and have at the most 500 players for a few hours a week in-between playing other games.

    Durability

    What are the positives of 1 durability?

    Durability

    I would like to see increased durability returned. A single durability is too fragile to risk PvP and sometimes also in PvE combat. It's just too costly in time and resources. The old system wasn't perfect. It made the costliest ships, the 1st rates too risky to play. A more balanced and simple system would be to allow 3-5 durabilities to all ships.
  10. I have changed clan to one which is English-speaking in the French nation. This means that my base at Fort-Royal is 4 hours sailing from the clan base at Nouvelle Orleans where I would need to buy an outpost to take part in clan operations. The huge sailing time is one thing that cannot be a favourable aspect of this game as it is now. The second thing is that at any moment during that necessary sail, you can get attacked and sunk, and have to do the whole sail all over again. Another aspect of the game that is negative. The third thing is that you have no way of knowing where you are when at sea, because the old grid with longitude and latitude has been inexplicably removed. A third aspect of the game that makes it less sell-able. I am sorry to say, but I have had this game for some years now, I would not buy it in this condition, whereas when I bought it, it was fun and exciting to play.
  11. I would've thought that 3) being able to change the name, would not be difficult, given that there are only 500 players left and only a percentage of these might want to change their captain's name. It would be easy to do a survey to ascertain how many.
  12. 1) When will the game be finally released? 2) Will current players keep their ships, resources, gold, rank, crafting level? 3) Will there be the possibility to change the name of my captain? (I have a different name in Naval Action Legends than I have in Naval Action. I would like to have the same name in both.)
  13. I would like to join. I was in a clan that is now defunct, the Legion Etrangere, and moved to another, La Confrere des Botteurs de Culs, but they have persuaded me they have too few English speakers. So, now, I am looking for a truly English-speaking, French nation Clan. I am located in Italy and speak fluent Italian as well. I lived in Australia for most of my life, and have been a wargamer in miniature figurines (Napoleonic 25mm) since 1973.
  14. I am looking for another English-speaking French clan. The one I am in has become defunct. Any suggestions, please?
  15. I am playing as French. I have 4 redeemable forged papers. If I change nation and captain's name what do I Iose? Redeemable forged papers? Gold? XP? Rank? If I put my ships in a free port, how do I recover them with a new name and nation?
  16. TAXATION I am the only player in my Clan. About a dozen players have left the Clan. No one has been playing for months. I have only just returned a week or so ago. The Creator of the Clan hasn't been seen since June and hasn't played for a year. So, where do the taxes go? Taxes seem a silly development and do nothing for the playability of the game. PROGRESS A little progress has been made. I noticed my FPS has gone up from 30-40, to 50-70+. Also, AI ships on the high seas give some rewards for sinking. Excellent. Unfortunately, missions have become worse and there are no rewards for fighting a battle. Very strange. The restriction to ships of the same rate is unecessary, in my view. And, ships still have only one durability. No one except a very good player would risk a pvp under that condition. So, more work to do to get those 2,000 naval wargamers back. I live in hope.
  17. I think the truth is there is only ONE Developer and he's got his hands full. That's why nothing is happening.

    Grind discussion

    Witty but also sh*tty. Your addiction does not give you leave to support a game that's become boring to most former players. Nevertheless, I like your ditty.
  19. 3 June 2016. It was still a SUPERB game. I wrote: Balance the game. Do not make it too complicated and onerous. Sailing on the OW can be fun for very short periods, but boring when it is imposed upon us for lengths of time because of the crew or other mechanics of the game, e.g. when one cannot find an inaccurately placed crossed swords. This must continue to be a game which one can play alone, PvE, or with mates, PvP. There have been many objections to these proposed changes. It is worth testing quickly and deciding just as quickly to keep or dump the changes. I like the idea of a core crew (is that what 'persistent' means in Naval Action?) which increases in quality from raw to trained to veteran and to elite. I like the idea of officers which increase the morale, handling and gunnery in a ship.
  20. The intended audience for Naval Action at the moment is the 50 players who like NA as it is. What a joke!
  21. I know, some of you--all fifty of you--love the current game and the rest of us can go stuff ourselves--all 2,000 of us. Well DEVS, what about it? Are you going to give this game mouth-to-mouth resuscitation? Will it be like the phoenix and rise from its ashes? I hope very much so. One positive: still superb OW with huge map.
  22. On the 26 April 2016 I wrote the following: 'At the level of Capitaine de Corvette on a Cerberus the game is wonderful at the moment both as a team game (using ts3) and as a me vs the AI game.' At this time, the number of players was in excess of 1,500. This is about where--give or take a month or two--the game was a playable plaeasure. This is the game for which I paid €36.99 and so many others did, too. Are we to be abandoned? For what reasons? Is it ethical? Could we go back to the past and forget everything that has destroyed the game and made it 'fun' for only about fifty players? Continuing with a path that is wrong won't get you any prizes. Please, consider.

    I agree. I am reluctant to mention another game because it is ill-mannered, so I apologize in advance. World of Warships makes money hand over fist and has up to 19,000+ players on line. You never lose a ship. It's always back in port after a battle. I have eight ships waiting to play with. There are constant contests and missions and what-not. It's like being at the Mad Hatter's tea party. Pvp is continuous. You could play it for free from beginning to end, but I, like many others, got drawn into buying ships and accelerating progress through the ship tiers (from I to X) by buying doubloons. It's not perfect, and I would love for Naval Action to be interesting again so that I could alternate and play it too. Alas, I may have to wait a long time for this to happen--or maybe never?
