Hello guys, Brazil is the 13º bigger games market in the world, and have 75,5 milions of players, could you consider create a new Nation -  Portugal - , to gather this people? Even a no ports nation would be so welcomed and make people here be interested in Naval Action. In the historical aspect, about Portuguese presence in Caribe, Portugal attacked and conquest Cayenne, in the French Guiane (1809), as a retaliation by the Napoleonic invasion in Portugal, that made the Portuguese court flee to Brazil. There they stablished the Cayene and Guiane Colony that lasted until 1814 when, with the fall of Napoleon, the territory was returned to France.  Thank you very much for consider this suggestion.

Not sure if this will help the game. Even if it would be historically correct. The small nations have a massive problem to survive. Finding a ship building port is a way more difficult.

The empty ports are not lacking and it would not be so catastrophic for the gameplay to give each faction 1 capital and 3 unconquerable ports.
I think it can be a first step to make many players happy, without great dramas

They could just allow investments in nation´s capitals.

 

But regarding other nations, I agree with the side voting for not to. I am talking from PvE perspective and in PvP it might be even more pronounced. For example Dutch has only around 10 players in total. Now few will go as chineese and some more as portugeese? Nations with <5 players are not exactly what we need. Honestly, I would be glad if this game would only have british, french, spaniards and maybe pirates, there is no need for more (I am neither of those nationalities in RL mind you). It just adds zero to game immersion seeing Victory flying e.g. prussian flag. I can fathom it flying french or spanish flag as they had a fleet to take her if Nelson wouldnt be so great leader, but prussians? Russians? Dutch? (they were annected by France at this point anyway) I dont want to diminish the importance of other nations, but they just spread the game population too thin.

Unlike some other (sales-orientated) nation picks, the Portuguese (by the vicinity of Brasil) have a real reason to make it into the game.

Heck, we used to play for years and some of us for decades in nations not identical with our real life ones, and it worked. Why is that suddenly a life-or-death question of game success?

about Portuguese presence in Caribe,

You do not need to historically support Portugal's presence in the Caribbean. In the game there are Russians, Prussians, Poles, Lithuanians, who never had possessions in the Caribbean nor fought there. I would include the Azores islands on the current map as a starting point for the Portuguese nation. Saludos.

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had a small settlement on Trinidad in the late 1600's, just saying.

Would be nice if NA actually had any of those millions of brazilians playing but we don't. We're getting China because we already have a large % of chinese players. Do we prefer historical accuracy or a busier server? 🤨

With that logic every game should be set in china or have a chinese something.

GTAV didnt need explicit references to any community to become one of the best selling games of all time. It only needed to be a fun game with good content and updates.

Shit plot, one fleshed out character, sold on name brand recognition. Might as well quote COD as excellent games on that merit.

Didnt ask for your personal review.

 

We were talking here about adding a nation with the purpose of increasing pop.

Don't force devs to give an answer to that question. ^^

We all love our comfortable delusions.

yep, we need the server to have enough players to be able to stay online so we can keep playing

Turnabout is fair play.
