It need to be worked on I agree but...It didnt bother me since we encounter a lot of action, it was like 4 or 5 battles in 3 hours or so..with one lasting 30 min so it was okay but if you go into open sea (mexican gulf for example) Im sure it can be tedious.

Ha..yeah it was very fun! That trader without guns aboard was a lucky catch. He even had a full cargo ..unfortunately I had to throw most of his stuff overboard. I didn't give this game some proper time before and I was actually suprised as well that I like it,since it resemebles a game with Tanks which name I refuse to say out loud :)

The open world din't bother me in that way..tho I hope that will be improved so it actually feels like sailing like in the battles.

The early alpha testing battles were just that, nailing down the ship balance, weapons, and performance. It was all done quite well, even if it was within a painted circle that resembled, well, you know...

The OW compressed time travel is not an ideal mechanic, and have to admit, could be close to a game-breaker for me as experienced earlier, though maybe I didn't give it enough of a chance.

That merchant you so rudely assaulted, was it a player without cannons or an AI ship? I suspect a player, the AI isn't that dumb... :grin:

It was a human player..desperate to make some cash to move up in the world. He took his chances :)

After sailing a lil yesterday again I have to stop cus...we need to come up with a Nation for all of us!! Im making money and if I delete my player (you only can have 1) I will lose all the money, so I prefer to do it now before I get more stuff. Im not a keeper so I can sail under any nation flag. Also it seems that at this point all the Nations have the same ships?? (Correct me if wrong)

Wolf, I found the way to trade between us so we dont have to throw part of the loot overboard :lol:

Certainly, put it to a vote but we should look into the in's and out's of playing the various nations. Choose based on port locations, etc. The British Royal Navy may have a slight edge in locations.

Yes Haash, all ships all nations.

Me and Mr Wolf captured 2 Spanish ships that had the nerve to sail close to Dutch ruled shores ;) The last battle was 3:2 and must have lasted 30 minutes!

Btw Wolfie, about who captures a ship, this is taken from the forum:

Who owns the surrendered or captured ship?
-Friendly ships cannot take command of the white flagged ship unless you unlock it as free for all
-Enemy ships can recapture or destroy the white flag ship if they want to
-Surrendered ship is assigned to the person who dealt maximum damage
-Boarded ship is assigned to the winner of boarding combat

So I guess I dealt maximum damage?
