Fire Ship Madness Attack Losses

Arr pirates!! I be having some exact numbers about the horrendous attacks of the new tactical unit - the Fire Ship and I be wanting to share that with ye.

I made this big picture with all the data so ye can see. 1 Fire Ship was sent against me Haven by a complete stranger who I never talked to or dealt with in any way before. It be giving me a headache trying to understand why someone would spend money sending a Fire Ship against another random (casher) player like me-self. I will be having a word with him in private on this matter, but let's look at the numbers:

So ye see 1 Fire Ship which has 12,600 offense was sent and was supposed to be killing at a 1:1 ratio exactly (or about) 12,600 defense. But this be not the case at all. It killed off 20,000 defense, which be 56.3% more than it was supposed to be doing. I know this because I carefully took again the same units the Fire Ship killed and saw the defense value (I did this via Secure in Haven window).

And more than that, there be complete madness in what units it be killing, seemingly taking out units which be not easy to have. As I wrote on the picture it be killing 3 units out of 12 in one case and 3 units out of 112 in another or 1 out of 2 (which is especially strange) versus 1 out of 60 in another troop type. So the percentage distribution of damage is totally not respected.

As I wrote in my previous post on the Fire Ship, it certainly be driving fear into Havens with such performance, especially now that I revealed to ye the exact figures. However, 12.600 defense be not a major issue for me to lose, I regained double that today alone, but with this analysis me'arr clearly say that it be (1) Not fair to kill off nearly 60% more units and (2) It be not fair to almost completely disregard the standard game rules on percentage distribution and I be wishing that I be getting a compensation for the unfair Ruby units lost (although I be sure I won't).

So what ye think? Lay yer thoughts below in me blog comments. Did ye experience the same and if ye did then share screenshots of yer battle to prove it as well, don't just be talking empty words.

The New Powerful Fire Ship - 12600 Offense

Arr pirates!! Scary be the oceans when crew-less ships filled with fire up to the neck be roaming the waters! 'ere we got ourselves a new monster of the sea, a ship without a captain, a ship which be driving fear into all Havens - the Fire Ship!

Scared as pirates can be, some peace can be found in the fact that the Fire Ship costs 500 Rubies, which be meaning that it be a luxury only for the wealthiest of the captains out there. It be almost like paying directly for the destruction of yer enemy and a destruction that arrives in no more than 3 minutes maximum to yer Haven no matter how far the enemy may be.

There be some restrictions on this Fire Ship, so the wealthy captains may not send a whole fleet, but still 10 of these monsters or demon ships can be sent per day and attacks can be as frequent as one in every 2.2 hours.

Now let's look at the stats - what stats say ye? There be zero in every category, which be unlike anything else there is, but there be a massive offense of 12,600 points directed in 1 way to yer enemy with a special rule that it can destroy defense with a 1:1 ratio, which means exactly 12,600 defense will be destroyed by 1 Fire Ship (+ the super fast travel time of just maximum 3 minutes).

So will we see a lot of the Fire Ship in the ocean? That be indeed an interesting question. I recon all captains that be shopping a lot in the Smuggler's Den are certainly going to get some Fire Ships and also I think this be a creation of evil and hate, so all those who are in a feud or hate war with other captains will seriously consider the Fire Ship. What ye think? Will ye buy one or more of these? Leave yer thoughts in the comments below.
