Screenshot... ? Does this mean I have to go pillaging around until I find a brigand to make their trademarked 'world's stupidest move', that is, moving forward one space and holding still to receive a full broadside from a stationary vessel?

I don't see what's wrong with pillaging.

Besides, Brigands also control flottillas :P

Lazy eyes has my permission not to have to worry about my name being visible.
Passes ye the pringles.. and giggles..
Yes that was a good one too..

Later in that session I think is
"The one" I was referring to. Was one where a shippy flew across the board.. we quickly exited and got om advice.. which was to port.

It may have been too fast for anyone to have gotten a screenshot. Unless taken after it moved and show an x where it started.

I had an immaculate max - 0 last year rather than turn into my firing line, the brigands were just happy to rockshunt in a gust of wind. That was pretty dumb. I add that these were Imperial idiots.

I don't mind if someone knows I'm one of the posters. I doubt there is anyone on Midnight that has been on a ship I'm XO'ing on that hasn't seen that particular gripe of mine about people not working anyway.

This.

I've had at least one encounter I can remember in which I beat a Merchant Brig max-0 from them continually beating themselves off of a rock. I had no cannonballs on board, was moving sugar cane; at the point when it was 8-0 I turned back for them. Not often but it does happen, and yes that makes them "imperial idiots".

I just had a brigand inflict 3 rows of damage to itself with me not placing a single move throughout the entire sea battle. Dunno what it did, I was filing documents and they had 3 rows of damage to none on mine when the SF screen popped up. :O

Ive gone sloop-bagh before. just naved around a group of rocks and it would bash itself into them. it was maxed, as i came into grapple got shot up a few times. Re engaged and they ended up ramming rocks again as i re-shot them.

don't know why, but the stupid brigands seem to be LongShip/Dchow/Bagh/xebec(don't fight them too often)

all the non-traditional ships it seems.

Since when did Dchow get a ship class named after him?

[/rerail]

I must agree though, the non-traditional ships seem to be incredibly stupid and almost always intentionally turn into my cannon fire, or worse yet, ram them selves to max via rocks/end of board

I must disagree, I regularly get smashed to pieces by dhows which show a remarkable ability to second guess my moves and shoot at just the right times x.x

I think part of the reason is that those 'new ships' tend to be at the top end of what you spawn (dhows and LS, maybe baghs, for sloops, and xebecs for bagh/WB pillages), so they are a lower quality AI for the same might ... thus if you always engage green ships, a green xebec will usually be dumber than a green WB.
