Harrr, I spend the majority of my time trying to plunder other ships on the sea, and I especially like to attack other crews. I find that attacking other crews is quite difficult, becase they allways are in fights of their own. What usually happens is I spend a good 10 min sailing back and forth waiting for them to finish up. I was wondering if you could give us anchors so we could just stop in the middle of two way points to give us break from constant puzzling and to make it easyer to catch the other crews.

The way-points are there to give you a break from puzzling. And if you're just sitting, waiting between them, all you need is one or two carpenters and you should be fine. Nobody needs to sail, or navigate, or bilge.
The larger issue here, of making it easier to attack other players, is more a question of numbers. We have a nice, Alpha-testable average of 15-20 players on at a given time now. There will be many more in the real game. NPP ships will scale up at a much more gradual pace as the seas fill up with a greater number of players. Come Christmas you'll have to search to fight someone who isn't a player.

Yarg! i had the "pleasure" of being beaten by yer crew last night. Good thing the black ship isn't sailing yet ay? ;)

As for the anchor, it's in your best interest to be sailing when a crew breaks out of battle since you can match their speed instead of having to start by raising sails and hoping to be better sailors than the other crew.

I was sendin' ye tells askin' whar ye be sailin last night, bootylubber. We took it fer a sign of fright, and ye did indeed dock not long after. Har, har! I'm sure ye rin a fine tight ship, matey.

But if ye be lookin fer a fight, just tell to some of the crew aboard a Rudder Lubber ship. We be always in the waters.
