swabbies and sea battle Reply to this Post

I think it would be helpful if the senior officer on a ship could
select the enemy target for jobbing swabbies. It is difficult engaging in a
sea battle with a few of them on board and they keep switching their
targets.
Maybe the ability to click on the jobber and then an enemy to target,
would help a lot with strategy when sailing with more swabbies than live players.

Perhaps another way to apply it, to save a bit more time. Such as right clicking would send a command to all (in the form of the clicked face and mini field near it flashing some color, maybe green or red) and make one swabbie on-board that hasn't been affected in this way in the last five seconds switch to that target.

I don't think this is good. Swabbies should not be more than an awkward substitute for real players.

Sometimes Swabbies can be preferable to players. At least the swabbies never get mad at you for not finding ships to pillage =D And I've never had one be rude to me. ;)

It would be kinda nice to be able to order the swabbies to attack who you want them to... it'd be for those occasions where you don't want to waste a jobber's time with what could end up as a sight seeing tour with a rare fight on the way.
