"Regroup" command Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I think it would be a wonderful asset to any captain to be able to order your swabbies / crew to "regroup" in a battle. This would force swabbies to group up in gangs of twos and threes (threes if possible), and would probably work best on players by sounding some sort of alert (perhaps that Star Trek-esque whistle?) and displaying "The captain has ordered ye to regroup!" in the chat window. After several frustrating fights with me swabbies, I've come to realize how much I'd love this feature.

Aye that be one of the built-in liabilities of relying on swabbies fer yer crew. For humans, ordering them to regroup via command would be no more useful than shouting out "teams!".

Having the sound would get their attention and then they'd know to take a look at what was going on with the teams. With swabbies I wouldn't want group of threes, I usually fight with groups of twos. . .

I refer you to the following thread:
http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=1898

I would suggest you pay particular attention to my post, and to Nemo's response.

While the matter may or may not be on The List, you are not alone in your pining for this feature.

Although, I wouldn't expect target ordering for swabbies to be forthcoming.

Ah, thank ye. I've been playing YPP for a while now, but I'm still pretty new as far as the Fora go. I apologize for the redundance.
