I was in my Santissima last night in a PVP game with just a couple of SOL the rest being frigs and lighter ships. Captain Chromey was my counterpart on the opposite team and it looked to being a nice balanced knife edge fight. However one of the brig players (Captain Black Harwood?) from the opposite team rammed three of our ships including my Santi, I had to use a repair or sail the entire game without my bowsprit and also had to switch to repair mode to control some leaks. Later in the same game a surprise rammed my ship and 'remained in a ramming full sail position' which prevented me from turning which in turn prevented me from turning my stern away from enemy ships who badly raked me. My questions are these. Should a brig of any tonnage survive 3 full speed rams against larger ships and actually cause a leak on the Santissima ? Is a ram to prevent a ship manouvring a valid realistic tactic ? atm we have no after match effect so sink or swim we have no bad effects from suicidal manouvres. I hope that losing your ship and crew/officers is something to be avoided at all costs in the final release game.
