  • Ship BR changes
    • Trincomalee BR 270 to 260
    • Endymion BR changed from 280 to 270
    • Indiaman BR changed from 150 to 140

why a 12pd frigate like L'hermione has 220Br in a shot weight based dmg system. She would need a reduction too.

they also need to take into account the Health Pools, its 2k difference in hp between l'hermione and trinc :S.

Good point. Why don't you list them here so there is no doubt.

Doesn't really matter what the BR of a port is, folks will always try to bring the biggest ships they can to the fight.  Only way to prevent 1st rate spam is to rate lock ports.  It's quite simple.  Back when the 1st rate BR was made a lot higher the meta was to bring bucs for a couple of weeks and eventually 1st rates started creeping back into every PB starting with 1 or 2.  Those 42s and the thickness meta is just too good to not have.

Rate lock the ports.  Non capitals should be 3rd rates or lower.

Or rate limit the battles.  No more than 2 1st rates at a large battle

Certainly a thought.  Not sure I like the idea of saying you can only have x amount of these vs simply just not allowing them in the fights.  Especially from a coding perspective.  This would also mean that you HAVE to bring 2 1st rates or you're dead basically.

I would like to see lower BR PBs locked to lower rated ships as well but then we need a solution for screens as well. Even NPC capped 1st rates could stop any 3rd rate PB fleet.

@admin can you give a reason for why you change these BR's? it really makes minimal change for rvr and pvp, and is this your opinion or is it someone in the community that have suggested this?

 

These changes are required to make sure Raiders and Player numbers are equal in Raider port battles. This complain was common and now its fixed.
