The Battle of Port of Spain

Posted by Keith Cross on May 04, 2007  | Comments

The Battle of Port of Spain -

In this Devlog for Pirates of the Burning Sea, players recount there experiences during a battle on the high seas. An interesting read for the nautically inclined.

Some Beta testers wrote up after-action reports of a particularly exciting battle. I've changed the names to protect the innocent - otherwise, these are very nearly exactly their words and points out that players of varying levels with a variety of ships can have exciting battles together:

"Tonight we had some very good PVP action around Port of Spain. On the British side I (level 24) was in my brand new Mastercraft Brig, with B2 in her starter Halifax (level 11) as an escort. The honorable B3 (level 17) of Spain was our opponent.

The battle started with B2 taking some long range shots from B3. She quickly moved back to near me as I advanced. As soon as I was in range, B3 switched to chain (or it might have been bar) and shot at me from long range while I slowly tried to advance on his position firing heavy round. I ordered B2 to switch to dismantling shot and close in to work on his sails while I worked his hull with heavy round.

B3 made excellent use of the terrain, his skills, and repair consumables. Right as we were passing through the cave I realized that I had forgotten to load my new brig with any repair consumables. No repairing for me in this battle. Making good use of terrain and repairs he was able to get B2 and I separated. He dismasted the Halifax, followed with a round of anti-personnel, then boarded capturing the Halifax. As he was boarding I switched to star shot and closed in as fast as I could. B2 had already worked his sails down to about 68%, so it gave me a good start. He finished the boarding action when I was about 185y away I fired off a broadside of star, and then switched to bar as he was pulling away from me. One more broadside of Bar and I had him dismasted. At the same time he was firing dismantling shot at me as well and before I could get out of his firing arc I was also dismasted.
