I used a light sloop last night with just myself and sunk an incredible amount of ships. I loved it. My friend Brac gets made fun of for using a sloop so I made him proud. They are so hard to hit and if you get in just the right spot and follow their movements it's nigh high impossible haha...

I pick the size of my ship to match the number ive got wanting to use cannons?
I have noticed that the computer screen settings and size can make a big diff in how easy or hard it is to hit a lite sloop? When im playing alone(and for me that is playing two pirates at the same time with maxed sailing and cannons) that i take a lite sloop most of the time. Ive got 6 war frigates and 2 war sloops, so ive got diff choices.(that counts test and live ships on two accts). I think the pvp ships has turned boring very quickly, at least on test you could build your "Infamy" a.k.a bragging rights. To wrap this up if you see a lite sloop "Storm Hunter" go ahead and jump on it and maybe it will help you decide if its easy or hard to sink a lite sloop........ ;-) .......later...... ........... ice

if anyone wants a mastered cannoneer let me know. i finally got a crew member last night (i'm way to impatient to crew i guess...gotta get out there!) and let him drive my war frigate. I had an absolute blast working the cannons again. (mastered them a loooong time ago).

we were on an ocean where no one was glitching (SO REFRESHING!) and were out numbered but quickly cleared the ocean. My new favorite thing is to play cannon assasin as well as grape shotting other pirates.

antoher fun strategy...probably letting the cat out of the bag here...but preload all the cannons on one side with explosive charges then have the captain ram the ship you are attacking, turn sideways then one by one unload your explosives! ohhhhhh, look at all the pretty colors.LOL

Great idea - I've started pre-loading cannons with alternate lightening and fury. Can't wait to try this out.

Be happy to sail with you if our paths happen to cross.

If you are sailing solo the light sloop is a great choice. I have used both the light and the war class and I do like the light a little better. I have noticed however, that the aim of most people in pvp has improved since it has gone public, making the sloop a littles less deadly, but you can still rack up major kills with them. I think that with any class or crew size the real premium is shot placement. It is hard to stay afloat in any ship if you are taking max damage with every bolt or cannon ball hitting you.

I really think this guide should have the section on repairs rewritten. It is clear they want the "repair-while-sailing" to stay. That is, the boat OWNER lets someone else steer for a moment (someone said it has to be three seconds - NOT TRUE) then takes steering back over. From that point on, anyone can repair at any time. This behavior lasts until the captain releases the steering wheel.

Likewise, the "press F1 while repairing" thing, to have one person repair all four spots and fire a single cannon, all at the same time.

Ok for the first one i still have a feeling thats a glitch if POTCO would let you repair while sailing you could easily do it by just going to a repair spot and hitting SHIFT not having to do all that.

The F1 thing is definatly a bug trust me disney would not allow pirates to repair all the spots and cannon all at the same time
