enemy ships as a crew with intense FPS Naval Combat based in the Age of Sail
Man the cannons and fire off coordinated broadsides with other players to sink
the opposing ship. You will fight as a crew of up to 16 real players on a ship
led by another player that has been voted as captain. Modes can have up to 54
players in a battle!
Coordinate and cooperate to be efficient and be a devastating crew
If you're part of the crew, you may help the ship in any way you see fit without
being forced to a role. You can be the part of the gunnery crew by loading
cannons and firing at the enemy, or be the master of repairs and help keep the
ship afloat by patching holes in the ship, repairing sails, or pumping out
water. Help keep your ship's fire power up by running supplies for your fellow
crewman, or even board an enemy ship and conquer it!
Apologies for the missed update yesterday. I got caught up in a lot of stuff
early in the day, created some posts, and only when I got online this morning

I'm especially regretful that this left anyone thinking that there might be
something wrong besides me allowing myself to become too distracted.
