Post Who stole my ship!

The past three times I've been on a materials run, someone has stolen my ship. How do I know? When I go to the shipwright to check for my upgrade, my previously-undamaged ship suddenly has damage. I try to get back on my ship via a dinghy, and my ship is now sunk!

I think I heard before from someone that you can stay on a ship and take it when it docks. How do you do this? And how can I avoid having someone do it to me?

Or is this just some kind of glitch? I note with interest that I can't board my war sloop when my war brig has been stolen.

Stole your ship? Rather impossible when you own it. Sounds like someone was stuck on board your ship when you ported. Until they disconnected from the game, the enemy ship continued to do damage. I had that happen to me. I also had my ship absolutely stuck...

Yes, it is possible when your ship is stuck. I was surprised by that fact too when it happened to me. Is your ship still stuck yamathero531?

Ooh!

I've had the Ship stuck "Glitch" many times...

When Porting, I suggest asking ALL Gunners and Repair Crew to leave their tasks a few moments before you reach Port... I've found this minimizes the "risk" of a pirate getting stuck on your ship and subsequently disconnecting as it sinks.

Just another odd thing I noticed, when Porting, Dancing a Jig seems to help myself and many others from disconnecting, also making sure the Loot/Cargo Display is closed.

Hope these little tips assist, dunno WHY they help, but they certainly do I find.


Cheers!

I believe I heard that someone could stand just behind the helmsperson and - just as they land and the helmsperson lets go of the helm - they can grab it and keep control of the ship.

There must be "vandals" doing this on purpose. Then they have fun going and getting your ship sunk. Maybe going out and charging into the hunter and warship that are following you in. It must be if they are getting sunk as fast as I can run from shipwright to hearby dinghy.

What do they get out of it? Kicks? Like the hackers who create computer viruses?

A time or two I have found myself crewing on a ship when the helmsperson/owner gets DC. I usually head for the nearest acceptable port.

Aye!

A further note to my below post, Crimson bought to my attention my oversight...

When Sailing, I normally appoint pirates as Second and Third Navigators just in case of DC, these pirates will standby on usually the 2 Cannons closest or Repair Slots closest the Wheel and in the event of a DC they rush to the wheel and assume command.

Usually these pirates I select are Higher Level and more than capable of handling Bounty Hunters and Warships, their duties are to simply keep the ship afloat while I log back on and return to the ship. Obviously this is why some of my friends are almost never in a Second or Third Navigators position, as I prefer to continue the run until it's predesignated end, rather than rushing to Port.
