  1. I think I know his one, had to think really hard Alaska is the Northern-, western- and easternmost state. Hawaii is the southern most
  2. holes along the edge of the map are very common, be careful - you may not be able to get back to the other side - it's especially difficult now without teleport
  3. I hope you realise that your suggestion means that an Oak/Oak Endymion should go 14.4kts and an Oak/Oak Bellona should go around 12-13kts. Bear in mind that non of the ships in-game are directly comparable to their real-world historical counterpart. A lot of people tend to think that the Connie was some kind of an unstoppable super-weapon, completely overlooking how a 13 kts Live Oak/White Oak ship would affect the rest of the game. The most accuate Connie build in-game would be a 'Very Fast - Teak/White with Cartagena Caulking'. It already has the highest thickness of any frigate
  4. I’m just guessing but could it be related to this? This has solved dropdown menu problems for a few guys.
  5. I think one of the major problems in the game today is that every involuntary fight is considered a gank - even a Surprise vs Victory. Unfair tactics such as waiting on top of a battle is certainly a hindrance to fun, but so is tagging an AI fleet to escape, sitting under the forts or calling for a revenge fleet. In the end the game allows it, so I'd always direct my critism at the game rather than the individuals playing it.
  6. Very good guide, Although always keep this in mind.. if you encourage this: You lose your right to complain about this: Many PvP'ers if asked politely during battle will often help you get the ship back or simply accept a 1v1 duel with no kill. The gain from PvP these days are minimal (better to hunt AI traders), so I would recommend a good tone in battle since most people tag because they think PvP is more fun - not because they stand to win something.
  7. Let me just get this straight.... This is the point he is trying to get across: And these are your answers: You guys are all amazing 😂
  8. Perhaps this could be solved by disabling outlaw battles in the safe-zones (Reinforcement-zone)?
  9. That sounds about right - the AI has always been OP in boardings.
  10. A small animation of the flag being hoisted would be cool too No pressure!
  11. Is green on green not allowed in this scenario? I'd have warned him not to get in my way and then focused fire on him til he's dead or retreated regardless of ROE. If he poses a danger to me I'm not going to care much. If pirates are allowed to act like pirates, then surely a naval officer is allowed to act like a naval officer and accept no kind of piracy regardless of the side of the battle they have chosen.
  12. Would be cool if they were capturable but that it would be impossible to gain XP on them without the DLC. Then the DLC ships can still be captured, but can't be sailed effectively without buying the DLC (Stuck with 0 knowledge on them).
  13. Would be a very interesting statistic, may be completely different from what we expect though
  14. His Majesty's Ship "Agamemnon" of 64 guns.
  15. Just leave it as it is - yes.. it's unrealistic... But provides us with great screenshots and the ability to scout across islands which arguable can increase gameplayability (a real word??). Most importantly, it does not grant anyone an unfair advantage, it can be freely used by everyone and has aided me in both the capture and escape of/from enemy vessels.
  16. The main problem with fir/fir is not thickness, it's crew resistance. your crew die easier than all other ships no matter how thick you make it. In the Trinc vs Endy discussion, remember that higher caliber does not mean better gun - I personally like to run 18lbs on the Endymion with 32lb carros on top. That is wrong, a 64-gun ship of the line is a 3rd rate in real life. they are classes wrong in-game for balance reasons.
  17. My 3/5 TT Agamemnon w/ Mediums does 13.8 in Open World and 14.3 in battle. For that setup Navy Loodsman and Elite Spanish is essential - be aware, your upwind speed will suffer greatly. I occasionally use this setup for solo hunting, it is important to note though; this is only because of my personal interest in that particular ship and its history. Game-wise it makes very little sense. I imagine the Wasa is the same. I'd reccommend a frigate (Endymion/Trinc) any day for solo PvP. Always bring more hull repairs than you "need". For me, a fir/fir Wasa is a dream target in a frigate because
  18. I know, but it will stop their endless complaining. Problem is: Then we will have a bunch of people from to opposite camp complaining and insisting on no invisibility and 30 sec retag timer.. You'll never satisfy everyone, so satisfy the majority. Again: I don't understand the problem, I very rarely have to tag twice - and I very rarely get tagged more than once. If I am up against a superior force that I cannot beat I simply surrender. Move on.. Perhaps the problem lies somewhere else: Control radius, Navy Loodsman, Sail Force mods? Consider that too. No it’s not
  19. Is that what I'm asking for Staun? Am I asking for anything at all Staun? Did you read what I wrote Staun? I'd prefer to keep it as it is - but people are CONSTANTLY complaining about getting retagged over-and-over again. I'm suggesting a potential solution to other people's problem that won't affect myself because I usually manage to catch my enemy in the first go.. + I always surrender if I can't get away (Can replace the ship in the time it takes to run tbh..). Try to be constructive Staun, it suits you better.
  20. I'd suggest a two minute invisibility timer + 1 minute tag reset to simulate getting away in open World. That should solve all problems and give people three minutes to get away in total. The reason for the 1 minute tag reset after invisibility ends is to prevent "surprise" attacks where players would have no time to react to people coming out of invisibility. Weird thing is; I'm kind of against my own suggestion, but I know that being retagged is a problem for a lot of people. I never really seem to run into it though.
