Back to battle results, yes?

Little Cayman ended with British Victory.

Client_2018-07-10_21-54-27-740.jpg

Spanish joined west of LC, with two mortars having an advantage and being able to kill one tower and the fort quickly, also Arcadian couldn't stand a chance against two Mortar Brigs.

After this the Spanish became very protective about their Mortars with the British 1st rates not being able to get close to the Spanish fleet. 3rdguards had to run away from the two Spanish Le Rekt's, but having one of them on each of his sides, it was only a matter of time before they got him. Meanwhile the Spanish 1st rates started chasing Henry Turner into the Bay at the ruins of the fort, which turned out to be a mistake, because I could start chasing the Mortar Brigs and demast them. Graf Bernadotte fell victim to me and Bill Brents was sunk by the British 1st rates.

The following Beach Party had a better turnout for the Spanish, who could sink Tom and Nethros, who was sunk when the Brits had 996 points. But with the Brits having control over two circles, it only took a few more minutes to accumulate 1000 points, because the wind would not let the 1st rates leave the bay.

Battle near Batabano, killed a random guy sailing a 3rd rate (who sails those seriously) when two chaps come out to avenge him. This is the second battle, the first of which saw the FNI chap get sunk in his Surprise, Endy then ran, retagged causing this battle.

Sunk Endy, Indef surrendered after dismasting him twice because I needed to play with my food for half an hour so I could get my PvP marks but he unfortunately surrendered.

This one is teak/teak, cartagena, elite french and copper plating (or navy hull can't remember exactly which).

Christendom is right about the poods!

Poods on the herc is fun.   Takes a little more effort to aim them I suppose.  I’ve found mediums to be easier to aim with poods and you get a little more close in damage.  

I’ve got my t/wo one up to 14.2 knts so I’m not really sure if the downgrade to t/t is necessary or not...to each his own.

Went to Batabano, got jumped by these four. Definitely some potential there or old players with new names but was a good fight all round. Almost had me a couple of times but shouldn't have tried the Requin pushing into the wind move, bad choice.

Was fun, Actually all Night have been, started at 16 server time and just logged of. All Night PvP. 

We should have been smarter than fight you under the fort. 

Me I just sailed bad and let you demast me. Ill guess we will see more to each other in the future🤨

You had the wind all the fight. So we should have backed of, But for now we just need fights for learning.

Im glad with the result. A sank requin is a good requin. Had to dismast it 3 times to catch it.

bad wind, Bellonas are better than Wasas, more Requins. Recipe for a Russian win right there.

+ attacker almost always has the wind

1v4, Brief battle description:

Pirates tagged me while I was attempting to join a big fight with my friends, so technically I got "screened out". All of the enemies were close to me in the battle, Bellona got close first and after 2 broadsides it run away and escaped from the battle. L'Ocean was sitting on my stern the whole time and it boarded me 3 times wiping my crew to 240:

When I finally got out of the stupid boardings, I got chased by the remaining 3 pirates. After a couple sips and gulps of good Polish Perry Miłosławski, half-sweet (product placement) I turned around and continued to fight. 2 Trincs came first with L'Ocean following closely behind. First Trinc got unmasted and killed shortly afterwards:

Then I focused on the next Trinc:

I unmasted the other Trinc, getting it to 20% sails only, but sadly I couldn't kill it due to the L'Ocean charging right at me, so I left him behind and the Trinc escaped shortly after.

Then it turned into a finally proper "almost" fair 1v1 with my amazing 500 crew and Ocean's over 2x my crew (1000+). Fact that I got raked dozens of times and having a handful number of guns left wasn't too helpful. I damaged all sides of the Live Oak - White Oak Stalinimium L'Ocean with Cartagena Caulking Refit and all that tanky crap, demasted him:

unknown.png

and I would of killed him without problems if the battle time didn't run out... Last seconds of the battle he was down to 50% structure and 50% sails:

But... There is no escape. I retagged him in OW and killed him.

Another fight, brief description: Russian charged at us and engaged having one 1st rate + Xebec P2W ultimate DLC ship advantage (6v8). We had Victory and mostly Santis, they had Stalinium Oceans. 

The course of the battle: Russians got rekt. 2 more Oceans have been killed in a different fight.

Quoting myself here.  I guess this is what happened to the prussian fleet headed to Portillo.

While I would of preferred to have a fight, it's pretty f'n hot outside and I was glad to get back into the pool.  I feel like the prussians have been involved in enough PB screenings NOT against their nation and spain owed them one.  Just take a look a couple posts up at the PBs against France vs Russia.  

Oh well.

Well, we get involved in all screenings, I thought this game is about fighting, not having alliances with everyone :) Painful lesson for that fleet, they can either improve or... die again. Most of that fleet are new guys.
