Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Heh, we're the ship you attacked and got black shipped for.

Glad they didn't beat you up, with so few player ships out there it's easy to make a mistake.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Actually I think Barrenmore atacked a weak ship on purpose to fight the black ship. I seriously thought when he first did it he had went crazy.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Well, from the looks of it, there WERE only 8 skellies on board at the time...

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

The Black Ship always has only 8 skellies aboard. The difference this time is we haven't got black damage blocks all the way up, leaving only 2-3 lines of blocks to work with.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Arr

I have not gone crazy. I just wanted to see the new improvements the the developers made. Which were very nice to say the least.

This battle as scullywag pointed out is that I was able to collide early with the Black ship and not be as damaged as normal.

I have beaten the Black ship 4 times now and have not heard or seen anyone elso who has beaten it. My last time was on Halloween while we all were zombies and skellies and the time before that was the first day of Midnight. Maybe it is because of my crusade to get back all that lovely poe I lost early on in the game to it.

The next time will be when I hear that it has been changed again or for a special occasion like, umm, christmas. Boat load of Santa's attacking the Black Ship.

I treid to get Cleaver to give me a Black Ship of me own for Halloween. Request denied.

Why do I do it? you may ask. Because it is there and it be the real challenge of your sea battle nav, but I am happy to take it on if requested to give you guys a chance to see how you will go.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

I think quite a few crews have beaten it now...seems all you need to do is go around with twice as many as the skellies or more and intercept blues until you get the Black Ship. Head straight into battle to avoid damage...and the fight is yours.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

I really wish the devs would throw 150 skellies (or more!) on the black ship and be done with it. It really rather angers me that it's beatable. It means that people still try to beat it - and kick blue ship butt while doing so.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Correct me if I'm wrong: I believe if you pick on a ship that's a true deep blue to you, the Black Ship comes for you immediately. So in theory deliberately trying to draw its ire results in no harm to the blue you're engaging (I don't believe it even slows down due to the attempted intercept).

I've only been unlucky enough to draw it once myself, though, while doing some practice PvP against my own crew.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Keep in mind, also, that EVERY time Ahab has gone a'huntin' the black ship, if it didn't appear when he attacked a player ship, he disengaged. NOT ONCE did any little blue player ships get demolished. Can't tell if that be true for brigands or no.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

I thought it was "a chance of getting the black ship", but not having tested it myself, I can't say for sure.

And, yeah, an officer on one of my crews was unhappy she only beat the black ship 4 out of 10 the first week of Midnight, so.

It did, however, stop the blue ship from whatever it was doing for his amusement.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Deep blue player ships appear to blackship you immediately. Deep blue brigands give you a warning the first time.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

They really should fix the black ship... before it was extremely difficult because it reacted to what your moves were and waited until you were full up on damage. Now you can intercept it easily while not taking much damage at all, and if your swordfighters were good enough you could almost certainly take the black ship 8v8.

Put it on the list, the black ship should be unbeatable. Put 100 skellies on board or just fix it so that they always do full damage to your ship again.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

Um, ARR fought and beat the black ship with some BD people a couple weeks ago if I'm correct in my information so they weren't the first to do it.

Re: First in Azure AND first in Midnight

I've noticed that unlike what it used to do, it is now possible to intercept the Black Ship before getting your ship stuffed full of iron. If I recall correctly, previously the Black Ship would stuff your hull full of cannonballs, and then intercept you when either your damage meter was at max, or its was. Since it's no longer possible to hit the Black Ship (nice ghost effect BTW), it should end up intercepting when you are at max damage (note that in my experience, it waited until your damage meter was full, not the battle damage, which filled up sooner).

I'm one of those who doesn't really want the Black Ship to be defeatable. It seems recently that the Black Ship has been made slightly easier to defeat, since ye can collide with it before getting max damage.
