Hi Since months ago i've noticed that there is a certain inconsistency in the damage i deal and receive between instances but could not prove it.. other people have also noticed it but think it's either their imagination or other factors What do i mean? Well sometimes you fire a broadside point blank , get credited 30 hits on top and deal 20% damage .. in next broadside you get again 30 hits and deal less damage The Ai are especially prone to this it seems as they can be sitting next to you shooting you for minutes and you hardly take any damage then they take out half your armor in one broadside (seems to be connected with their single shot mode but not sure) Ok .. examples .. besides plenty of strange instances where there should had been more damage done to me or less the best example i have is this : I was sailing wo/wo basic hullR Mercury with 6pd mediums in patrol zone to finish my last few points for the next reward.. so i attacked a trader snow (AI) .. done the usual chain then close in with double shot at point blank range .. only a plank could fit between my hull and the Tsnow's .. so i shot full broadside in locked random and all 10 shots penned (got 10 hull popup message on top whatever it's called) and i did only 20% damage to the Tsnow or less .. i was quite surprised thought maybe it's a white oak snow or something but then it fires at me and puts me into reload shock .. it's true i don't use Mercury much but that's a bit excessive damage.. so i became a bit more careful and in the end decided to board it and see what the heck it was made of .. turns out it was Bermuda crew space .. other ppl i've told this to shook their heads in disbelief Another instance is in Bensalem defensive port battle i was in my PB Ocean with nearly max thickness and hp ok fair enough it's a tanky ship but i was in the middle of 3 Spanish Oceans pretty much stopped rubbing our hulls against eachother .. for 5 minutes i was there shooting at them and they shooting at me .. i took ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE (check screenshots) so it was quite strange and unless they were shooting chain (which wouldn't had lasted that long) or grape at my hull can't be explained or at least doesn't make sense to me and those were no newbies all of them were quite experienced players so there must be something going in with the damage like i said. In the end after 5 mins it got "unstuck" and i started taking the normal damage again PS .. as the screenshots are quite messy from all the masts and sails pls pay attention on the radar/map too see the situation
