  1. It's a grey area. There is no formal rules that do not allow attacking a player, shooting and running. Because they are based on initial core design elements built around instanced battles. But these core design elements cause such frustrations and problems that are not good for the long term of the game. Before the release the decision must be made about those core systems and here are the options. Current ruleset is based on these ideologies I want to attack someone and people far away must not enter = "i must be able to sink you solo if i want to" I want to be able to sink a 1st rate in a cutter (old heated topic). I want to be able to run away if i want to (because my ship is fast) I do not want a player from far to join my battle, because its mine. If the goals is to increase pvp these ideologies can be rethought or abandoned as they dont increase an amount of pvp. Problem 1 - inability to help your own. The common message from rookies in national chats are well known - "I got attacked near XXX port - please help if you can" or "I see enemy ships - lets tag them - come help"… Usual answer in chat - silence and "tough luck" - as you CANT. I think its time to accept the fact that distance based ROE is bad and is reducing pvp and only helps solo hunters (which based on data are a huge minority). This is a problem because we know that pvp assists has 100% of correlation with retention. If you dont participate in group activities you drop from the game 10x faster. Problem 1.1 part of lack of group pvp There is actually not enough ganking (hold on and bear with me). For accounts created in December: Only 5% of players have pvp assists and only 1% of players have more than 10 pvp assists. Again the problem because assist increase retention Problem 2 Speed Fast ship controls the OW pvp, and heavy battle ready ships do not have anything to counter against the gank even if they outnumber enemies in guns. Problem 3 combat ready ship balance - described by OP in the post. When line ship is fighting 3 fast frigates to win the lineship must not make a single mistake When 3 fast frigates fight the lineship they can always run away if they make a mistake So why dont we just rework those ideologies from scratch and focus them on the main goal - increase pvp and group pvp per hour for all (not only solo hunter in a speed fitted frigate). Examples of clear solutions solving the problems and increasing meaningful pvp on the WAR server This is a war server. Why escape options? Whats the point? If you attacked - fight! Patrol rules for the whole world. Circle of death. If you are ready to attack someone - be ready to die and fight to the end. Sure some will cry about it - tough luck like they say in national chats - but it will keep only meaningful pvp. Battle is always open for the weaker side This is a war server - this is a pvp game with the goal to increase amount of pvp for all. There is no point to close the battle for the weaker side. Let them escalate. This becomes the goal. Then you can come to help your own, and know someone will come to help. Then you can build more friendships and get assists Then you will stumble to more battles and will have more pvp kills per hour. Basically. When improving ROE - Remove all features from ROE that reduce pvp per hour. Add features that grow the pvp per hour. Ignore the cries like "but tumbado is 3000km away". Check only one parameter when determining the outcome of changes - number of PVP battles per hour and number of assists. Ignore the rest. This will also solve the problem described in the post (with the move to weight systems because with proper broadside weight - prince will die in 1 min). PS Current number for War server for accounts created in December 1 pvp kill every 8 hours in game per pvp engaged player. 1 pvp kill every 24 hours in game total for the server

    Killing the Swede

    Captains log, 3rd of March, 1765 Port of Christiansted Aboard his majestys ship "Tudefjæset", 74-guns and 684 crew compliment The swedes intercepted a Danish-Norwegian invasion fleet down at the french port of Carriacou. The Danish-Norwegian admiralty had charged us to go out and find frenchmen and failing that - capture the port of Carriacou. We set sails from Christiansted early in the afternoon on the 28th of February 1765, the danish-norwegian squadron was comprised of eight 2nd rates, 88 guns and mostly 840 crew compliments. We sailed with decent winds for the french port and arrived early in the evening, just after the 3rd bell. We started off-loading troops and supplies for the invasion fleet when suddenly we were set upon by a fleet of swedish first rates! 9 first rates, 2 second rates and some minor frigates and 3rd rates turned the point to the south of Carriacou island and was on an intercept course. Captains in the danish-norwegian fleet was not overly concerned, Denmark-Norway and Sweden had signed a non-RvR agreement just a few weeks before and as we we're attempting to capture a foothold in french waters we thought nothing of the swedish fleet. The bastards set upon us whilst we were completely unprepared! Most of the stores were either in boats en route to the shores with more than two hundred marines already set ashore. The swedish fleet tore through us, their superior firepower quickly bleeding the danish-norwegian 2nd rates and after a short bloody slaughter there was danish ships burning left and right. https://imgur.com/a/jY3jd The night became a complete and utter disaster for the danish-norwegian navy that hadn't lost so many ships to davy jones in quite a while. It did show however that the slithering swedes were not to be trusted and that actions have to be taken against them. The King of Denmark-Norway and the danish admiralty has now decided to wage a continous privateer war against the swedish kungliga marine and we danish-norwegian privateers are acking for revenge! These past 4 days has seen seven swedish first rates getting cought out in the open, half of them sunk and the rest returned to Christiansted as prizes from the raids in swedish homewaters. Along with the first rates we've managed to sink over a half a dozen smaller ships and this campaign of retribution is just getting started! This campaign it is said will continue untill the swedish menace is covering on their knees asking for both forgiveness and peace! The squadron has just returned to Christiansted after raining holy vengeance upon the swedish snakes.. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Elsewhere in the carribean the danish-norwegian port of Misteriosa was attacked by the dutch. Most likely in retaliation of danish-norwegian seizure of dutch territories to the south. The dutch fleet joined with the wind against them and the battle was very quickly decided in favor of the danish-norwegian navy. The dutch had joined in 74's, seven to be exact S of the island and a renommee to the north. The danish-norwegian fleet commander sent a ship to the north to intercept and capture or sink the dutch renommee.. the rest of the danish-norwegian navy sailed S towards the main battlefleet of the dutch. The battle was engaged shortly after the 20 min mark, the danish-norwegian navy joined the battle with 64-gun third rates and the danish-norwegian commander ordered the fleet to put the ships along side that of the enemy and shoot them to pieces with more broadsides being weighed in on a few select targets at a time. After losing their 2nd Bellona class third rate the dutch fleet disengaged and went SE for the safety of dutch waters. The danish-norwegian fleet commander however was intend not to let the dutch slip past the danish-norwegian navy and set the fleet on an intercept course. The dutch fleet was cought a bit off the coast SE of Misteriosa and the battle turned into a messy brawl. My ship was entangled with multiple enemy third rates and both broadsides were firing left and right. The "Beskøjten" that has served me so faithfully since the great hurricane, luckily managed to push through the dutch ship of the lines and in the end the dutch lost all hands, all ships and their fleet joined davy jones. We did send one captain on his way back to Willemstad in a lynx to tell the story for their nations admiralty! https://imgur.com/a/UIck9 Regards Lars Kjaer, Captain of the danish-norwegian privateers Port of Christiansted 4th of march 1765

    Balancing the Gank Plank

    There have been a many threads lamenting the various ROEs and ways players can Gank or be Ganked. Would there not be something to be said in favor of a compensation/balancing mechanism for the underdogs of a given engagement? A number of other pvp games do this. Seems there could easily be as part of the exit screen, an adjustment factor for players based on the relative strength of their side - leading to possibly extra gold, exp. or drops. I wonder whether such a balancing incentive might prompt some to be more adventurous in experiencing PvP. Perhaps we could get folks to be more willing to play outnumbered if they were rewarded for doing so... Granted, we now would have to find some logical formula for such an adjustment beyond just BR of ships (which would not nearly capture the concept). Discuss.

    Battle Screen.

    Hello. Battle Screen. Post Battle. It is a nice place to be if u need to log of after the long battle. Sadly it's not being used for its purpose. Ganking squads comes to enemy waters jumps lone ships and stay in battle screen once battle is over, resulting in frustration of coast guards. It is damaging the enjoyment of the game play. If u enjoy Ganking, so be it, but u should not hide in battle screen. Would the following work in this game. Once Battle is over 2 minute timer starts to leave battle. After that u enter Battle Screen. Now another timer kicks in 60 or 120 Second. U have an option to log off. (if u need to stop playing) U have an option to enter Open Sea. But u have 60 or 120 sec to make a decision. 60 sec or 120 sec would be enough to alter your crew for what ever comes next. Swap ships, edit cargo. Would that work?

    Battle mechanics exploit

    Hi. I've just been ganked by 4 Pirate Constitutions. (i was sailing a St. Pavel) They appeared out of thin air. I believe they have someone join our nation as a spy, and call out large ships that come their way. They attack a small ship or trader, and after they sink it, they stay in the battle to remain invisible for the open world. When they get word of their spy that a large ship is coming their way, they leave the battle and pop up out of thin air(invisible), giving them unfair advantages because i can't see them coming and anticipate to escape. And because of the retarded 2 minute timer, nobody can come to help me. Annoyed greetings, Yngvarr
  6. The lethality of each ship can vary greatly dependent on Rate, Type, Quality, Number of upgrades, Quality of upgrades and Rank of commander (Crew on board) Observation. A basic fir 74Bellona with 1 common upgrade slot and Flag Captain with 69% crew is NOT the same BR as an Exceptional Live oak 74Bellona with 5 upgrade slots all exceptional and a Commodore with full crew. Will the end game allow for such variations in deciding the BR of each ship or will all ships continue with the set single BR rating.

    Clear Rules for the Open World

    A few questions about the rules in Open World and how they will be enforced: -When will we see a clear set of rules regarding the Open World? -How will gankers/griefers/trolls be dealt with, and what kind of punishment will they receive? -Will the Tribunal still be used in Open World?
