  1. Traveling for my son to play in a soccer tournament on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully the weather doesn't rain it out.
  2. Is there a way to change your POV in first person ship mode? I can't see anything while on deck of the frigate that I found. Makes aiming the cannons a PITA. Nice, I stay with the light weapons myself. Have the katana on a fighter. If I can't get a better view on the class 3 I'm going to switch back to my starter class 4. Although I do love sinking the little pirate ships in 2 broadsides. Which port is the best for buying bigger ships?
  3. Well, after restarting the game several times. I discovered I am not great, the class 1 is the starter ship for a capt. I tried a different one with a class 4 and am doing ok, I guess. Have captured 4-6 small class 6 pirate ships and sold them so have 120k or so. Lost a lot of stuff before I figured out that the quarters you go to when you select cabin is not yours but the crews. I dropped a lot of gems in the chest several times and a red pistol then a couple of days later its empty. Have 3 officers that all hate me, not sure why. Maybe I'm being too good, capturing pirates instead of being one. Just a lot more of a learning curve than I expected, guess reading the manual would help.
  4. How do I get my cannons to shoot farther than 100-200 yrds? Doesn't seem to matter how much elevation I use. They only go about halfway to the target before hitting the water.
  5. Figured out my speed problem. And some how managed to sucker a class 1 ship to run aground in range of patrol ship. The patrol ship killed off the crew and I captured it. I still can't hit anything with my cannons. But now have a class 1 with 100 24lbs cannons... I'll have to sell it because of the upkeep. Now if I could actually hit something with a cannon or hire a crew, still have less than 100 men, I would be dangerous. Ps: I am still rank 1 and have earned zero experience as far as I can tell. With about 30 mins play time.
  6. Only way I have been able to sink them is to lure them close to the forts. Don't think I have hit anything with my cannons. The guy I picked for starter has a class 3 with 24 12lbs per side if I remember right. I fire and see water splashes about 100 ft from my boat and about 300 ft short of the pirates. Tried boarding and die quickly, think the most crew I have been able to hire was 2 officers and 94 men. I have tried the early quest 2 or 3 times and can never get close to were I need to go before time runs out. Not sure why but my boat moves at a snails pace or seems to when I am on the travel map. Like 2 days pass just to get out of sight of the harbor. Maybe just me...
  7. I tried this a couple of weekends ago and it is just to slow moving for me. Every time I left port I would get jumped by pirates, sink them and have to return to port for repairs.
  8. Oh, Based on the above picture I figured he didn't want to scare the kids away with the Hammer boner.
  9. Very true, management were I work complains because they can't keep people in certain departments. But the starting salary for said positions has increased by a whole $1.50hr in 20 years which is less than the increase in minimum wage.
  10. lol, I almost spit my milk out.....
  11. Bah, now he has the best excuse to LARP as the King. And be carried around on lift. But seriously hope everything goes well.
  12. I am a recluse by nature, but love to travel to historical places. Have been to a few: Honduras for the Mayan ruins, Romania for Count Dracula's castle, Vienna for the palace, Vietnam for the wife. But would still like to see Rome, Paris, Egypt, Greece, London just to name a few. Did all my travelling before getting married, now doubt I will do much more outside of the US. Just cost too much for a family of 4.
  13. No snow here, was a sunny 66F here today. Should have cut the yard but took a nap instead. Son had a soccer tournament last weekend and more games on Sunday so ties up most of my weekends.
  14. Scion xB 2008 (wife) and a Toyota Sienna Minivan 2016 (me), she doesn't like to try and park it, too big. Didn't really want a minivan when I got the first one back in 2008 but the auto open sliding doors are great for the kids. Don't have to worry about them denting the other parked cars. Or getting out in the rain to open/close them. The 2016 is the third one we have purchased.
  15. Back on Guild Wars 2
