  1. The fact that this ship is free and posesses some unique characteristics makes it a perfect troll ship. It's very fast up wind and down wind, can have approx. 400 crew as a 6th rate and has fairly good guns. It's sails can be easily hidden from chains. As a result it starts to appear in every battle as a chasing ship which is hard to get rid of. It's also a ship used to hunt players in protected zones, because whatever - you'll loose a ship and get another one. Zones loose their meaning. It's like in poker - playing without money destroys the game. Here however it's an even stronger problem - only some players play with money, some don't. Overall this ship is a problem, so is a free Herc. I think they need a few changes: it's sailing characteristics should be modified. Currently on 60% sails it's faster in teak/wo configuration than eg. teak/fir Endymion with 100% sails (both going against the wind with pirate rig) it's crew should be adjusted to some reasonable level premium ships should be a bit harder to replace, to give their owners a reason to not to sink one anytime they feel like it. Eg one of the above: use longer redeem cooldown (eg. 2 weeks?) still require a player to pay some small amount of PvP marks (eg. 3) for redeeming it allow for other players to get the ship in-game, however at a significant cost (eg. after an epic event) @admin
  2. People already started calling "La Requin" the "La Broken". Here's an idea of how to fix this broken ship. It already has huge amount of crew, so this part seems ok. It has 3 masts and can loose bowsprit without loosing sail power, so this is covered. It has great guns and sits low on the water, which means that in the good hands he's already superior in fire exchange. He is extremely fast down and up wind, and has great acceleration - noone can catch it. It's easy to replace, as you get one for free every day - no pain of loss. All this seems to be covered. I found however an issue which maybe is the reason why people call it broken. It's bow chasers. Sure, it has both bow and stern chasers, however it can't shoot chain or grape from it's bow chasers. I think that's why people still think this ship is broken and needs fixing. Once fixed, it could better stern-camp it's opponents. We could address it with the next patch. There's one more improvement I'm thinking about. It's quite often that you fight Requins and Hercs with "recently killed" status. That's because people don't care for loosing those ships, and once they loose one, they usually redeem the second one and sail again right away - having recently killed status active. This already destroys the hope and will of life of an opponent who is tagged by 2+ such ships - he's in for a very long fight without hope of getting any rewards. We could however improve this system - simply give players a recently killed status ANY TIME when they sail those ships. Let's un-break this ship! Let's make La Requin and Herc great(er) again!
