I was happy for a BR change finally and then I saw the BR list and I couldn't help but laugh.

The BR spread is so wonky and it's now smaller.....it should be larger. I believe the BR spread should go up to 800. This would allow better balancing.

With a BR spread of up to 600 it's almost always going to be "I could bring X, but Y is better for only Z increase in BR."

I would even use 1000

@admin Any news on when the Rattlesnake is going to make its glorious re-entry into NA as a player(-crafted) ship? It is a crying shame that such a beautiful and lovely little full-rig ship, the only one we had from memory (compared to the other Brig & Snow-rigged 6th Rates), disappeared and has been absent for quite some time whilst we're left with the ahistorical 'Heavy' Rattlesnake?

Liking the look of an updated UI. Please keep us posted!

please dont insinuate. 
BR is based on hp and sustained dps, formulas dont throw dice. 

No offense intended, sorry if it was too much!

Just wanted to express something of my surprise!

it was not rare at all, in fact majority of battles ended up with full or partial demasts

Those are fleet engagement with a shitload of more guns than those of the individual engagements..

EDIT: And the engagements mostly lasted longer than those we have in NA.

That is what I would wish but thought it would be "too drastic" for some.

I would think with a BR spread of up to 1,000 would also lead us to ask for a BR limit change on ports.

No Captain. 
Solo engagement had same % of demasting in sustained combat.

But there is always a counter. You can fit your ship against similar opponents to never get fully demasted. You cant against much heavier ships.

He doesn't know because he always runs away in his Endymion. No need to turn then

 You must be refering that day Hachi was after me with 3 more guys (I bet you were one of them) SW of Carlisle. Sorry, but I don't fight gank parties, it's a matter of survival. You can ask Jorge, he knows me.

 But I'll fight you 1vs1 equal ships any day, I promisse I won't run. You and your clan of upstarts made many good players leave Britain and hate that nation to point of promisses to never go back, with your arrogance and elitism. 

 This have nothing to do with the patch topic but you forced me to give an answer.

Paintings are not exactly the best source of reference since they were often made for dramatical purposes AND they were often painted exactly for their decisive nature.. Combat reports from RN or other navies are far more accurate..

Can we get an official list and have ports BR ratings change.  The list some one posted seems off 

This list is taken from the games database and should be correct (I only made an error on the LGV Refit). All the ships we have seen today is correct according to the list

It can be found as spreadsheet here as well:

How accurate are the paintings to present the historical accuracy? Did painters participate in these battles and sail on those ships during combat?

Google Nicholas Pockock and open images. This guy was on the Combat ship during Glorious First of June. 

There was another painted with a very complex french name. he was also a combat photographer painter. 
He also is famous for his after Trafalgar battle damage album
Ship that took raking damage

(that we like to link and talk about when people ask us why we dont have huge holes in hull like in Total war).

Regarding BR

The formula needs some minor tweaks to incorporate Spike damage, and dps at 500m. That will make it perfect and will fix some strange differences.

Spike damage = broadside weight???

Thats sound like BR calc for an arena game like NAL but in my opinion it doesnt fit to NA.

So did you, err, read any combat reports?

It's basically unheard-of for two frigates to get in a fight without at least a topmast coming down. If nobody was dismasted, it's probably because one side got totally crushed in 15 minutes.

Of course, even when Chesapeake was captured in 15 minutes, the decisive factor was rig damage. Her jibs were shredded and she luffed up to get boarded.

Thank god! Please never do that.

I went out with a basic cutter an hour ago (after the last patch) for a 7th rate combat mission. I killed my foe and i had as reward a little more of 31.000 Gold. Before the patch my average payment was 23-24.000 gold. Same ship with same cannons and same buffs. Did the bounty rise too?

Lower caliber guns have higher dps.

Assuming you penetrate and can shoot constantly.

This is where I believe the algorithm gone wrong.
