pvp SAIL HO! - Enemies Spotted!
van der Clam posted a topic in Tavern"SAIL HO! Two points off the starboard bow!" This is a place where you can post sightings of enemy captains, or you yourself can post your own location, so people can find OWPvP easier. This obviously is directly related to a few recent posts of captains having a difficult time finding each other in this beautifully vast world, or directly complaining about other captains "hiding" in their safe zones. Here you will be able to find others to hunt. Examples: Someone else posting my location... "Dutch captain van der Decken was recently spotted in his Trincomolee around Cojoro in the Gulfo de Maracaibo between the hours of 09:00 - 12:00" or, Me posting my own location... "You can find me sailing around the Gulfo de Maracaibo between the hours of 09:00 - 12:00. Come get me!" Same thing would apply if a squadron ("clan" title in this game is inappropriate) of enemy captains were spotted, or if your squadron is hunting for other fleets. Feel free to make your post below and I will try to keep this OP updated weekly. FYI, another way you can find OWPvP is by posting in-game Global Chat your location. Either of these ways should ensure those who want PvP will indeed find it. It would have to be assumed that if those wanting PvP do not post here or in game obviously are not truly that interested in finding PvP.

Gentlemen Something I've been thinking about lately... It's become increasingly harder and harder to find PvP, I've found myself at La Habana and Charleston more often than I should. I’ve been attacking new players, PVE'ers and other individuals who really weren't too interested in getting their day ruined by a random British captain. I’ve had shit thrown at me in private messages by “honorable” captains from competing nations around French, American and Spanish waters for attacking them (PvP’ers), instead of attaking PVE’ers. This has made me think. Disclaimer: I know the devs have little to no interest in changing safe zones for now, especially with the new patches on their way. I'd like to propose the following: Make safe zones safe - no fighting PvP at all in safe zones.. let people do missions there for as many hours as they like. Remove enemy AIs from capital zones (have to leave the capitals if you want to engage AI fleets for books). Remove money reward for killing ships in missions, increase the cash reward for the mission itself. Make the cash reward higher for low tier missions, and lower for high tier missions. Make all basic books purchasable from the admiralty with CMs. Make ONE safe zone per nation. I believe that this will create a good, safe environment around capitals for new players, they will be able to get everything they need for the first week or two - if they want more money, skill books and marks they have to leave the zone. If experienced players feel like logging-in to fight some AI for an hour this can easily be done in the safe zone too. Most importantly: Casuals will never be annoyed again by any gankers or actual PvP’ers looking for a fight. PvP’ers can now fight each-other and brave PVE’ers can explore the beautiful map of Naval Action in hopes of finding new riches while I search for them.! Cheers guys. EDIT: Edited according to feedback. EDIT: For easier understanding.
reinforcement Zone vs. capturable ports
Suppenkelle posted a question in Feature proposals and Gameplay Help Q&AIn his notes to the update on 21st June @admin stated that: "Reinforcement zones ports and capitals (uncapturable ports including free towns) ability to build better vessels reduced, capturable ports ability to build better ships greatly increased" At least in case of Sweden (don't know about the other nations) this seems to be a bit misleading as Sweden has a capturable port within th reinforcement zone: Philipsburg. So, the simple question is: Is Philipsburg counted as a "Reinforcement zone port" or as a capturable port as it is clearly both? Thanks for answers.
