True 5th rate Patrol zone

Recommended Posts

Just throwing a suggestion out there to either add or change an existing patrol zone to cap ship rate at deep water 5th rate so there would be a zone where the classics like belle-poule, essex, trinc, etc. could be relevant. In my experience battles with these ships are exceedingly fun. When you throw them into a zone with the modded out 4th rates they become useless BR sponges (most of the time). This would also help out newer players as it would add another patrol zone that is easily accessible for them to participate in after completing the tutorial.

Maybe add a second layer of shallows which ships upto medium frigates (belle poule / frig / trinc / essex / ...) can enter

This would be good. I’d love to see more frigates in the water and real captains sailing them.

Belle poule and Essex relevant, nice joke when trinc is better in all ways. The only time you would want to sail any of the others you mention is if you dont have any other ship or just do it for stubborness unfortunately..

Just a suggestion, not the end of the world if it doesn't happen. Plus your argument applies to rates from all PZs, why not have one for 5th rates especially when we have 2 shallow with the same ships, and 2 4th rate capped zones? There will always be a meta for each.

I really like this idea, a second layer of shallow water would dynamically alter a lot of things and give smaller ships a chance to finally shine.
