Suggestion: Introduce "basic surprise" as starting ship beside "basic cutter" Background: "Basic cutter" is kind of outdated due to tutorial rewards. Necomers can start as Master and Commander if they pass the final exam. I believe most newcomers know about the HMS Victory, and many may have seen the movie "Master and Commander" which makes the HMS Surprise kind of famous as well. I would lie when I would deny that one of the reasons I bought Naval Action was to feel like Jack while sailing the surprise. Details: "Basic surprise" is a ship every NPC ship store offers same rules RoE like baisc cutter reduced repair count compared to normal surprise - makes equiping for new players easier and they get used to the repair system NPC shops sells basic 6pd + 9pd meds for 1gold each - makes equiping for new players easier and they get used to the cannon equip window Basic ships get new RoE in friendly carezones. - Battles vs AI close instant like missions (to avoid ganking by vets) basic surprise offers no reward expect money (like baisc cutter) Pros: up to date change regarding tutorial keeps people hooked to master the tutorial and set a foot on the first milestone surprise makes starting and acquisition of Naval Action environment easier for new players (loss can be replaced in a few clicks) Cons: More Database needed same drawbacks as the basic cutter has
