I tried the beta and this game has potential. Any 19th century naval battle simulation will always have limitations due to the subject matter however this attempt looks like it will be very good. The designers take account wind attitude and vessel maneuver which takes some time to master, especially if you are not a sailor. Most of all it was quite fun.

This could be good.
The last game that tried this was 'Age of Sail', not a bad game but buggy in MP.

I should also mention that we will be including a much improved MP naval option with V4.

Ntw naval battles are ok but it has serious limitations (ie-when you get to your waypoint the ship stops completely. No drift). Always bothered me.

Yeah I was one of the first ppl. Im addicted to it. Great game so far. Im planning on making a video but haven't had the time. If your interested Chromey, keep persisting. I know the next patch they are inviting more testers. The devs are giving me 3 keys to share with clanmates.

You can also level up by collecting cherrys,and occasionally a power up icon will appear randomly in the ocean if your ship is the first to collect this power up all enemy ships will be vulnerable to your ship,your speed increases two fold and if you ram an enemy ship it has to return to its deployment zone.
Also, you have the option of purchasing many "veteran status" add ons which include amongst others;

1,"The golden dragons of china",golden cannons imported from the far east no attribute increase but my god they look nice and shiny.
2."Lemon and lime" your crew have a quantity of lemon and limes on board which reduces your ships chance of scurvy."increases the hit points of your crew and you take less damage from close quarter grapeshot.
3."advanced technology" gives you the option to purchase the "ironclad" also gives the option of the "hollywood" camera angle where you never lose.
4."The skull and crossbones flag" Gives you the option of your crew having a modded parrott on each crew member,utterly useless but the bird crap on the shoulder shows the attention to detail in this game,FANTASTIC.
5."The letter of marque" a signed letter from sloop arriving with the hard copy of the game which you cannot buy,enjoy.
6."The sound of silence" an audio file which can be downloaded with clinch beating off whilst he describes how this game means you will never seek out a woman ever again but at the mere sniff of salty sea water you will ejaculate in your pants. " also comes with a free box of tissues and for the premium game adult nappys.
7."Bring out yer dead,dead man walking edition" your crew becomes a zombie crew who only need to collect random granola bars from enemy ships to power up and are level 99 on all boarding actions.

Finally every player who reaches experience level 100 will receive a free eye patch,a wooden leg and an empty bottle of rum free of charge,good luck my fellow seamen as it is estimated that to get from level 1 "the lowest" to level 99 " the highest" could take up to 4 hours of serious gameplay.
I for one cannot wait for the official release sometime in the future or if not by then no longer than a month later.

Naval Action fame spread by word of mouth on steam ... Will napoleonic naval battles be more popular than land battles soon ? Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson more popular than Maréchal Davout now ? ^^

Currently around 5 Grogs, 10 Templar, 7 Celtiberos, 10 N, 2 BPA, 3 Dragons and 10-15 from ntw3 community have the game. That must be a record as first time i see that many people from the ntw3 community playing the same game? I wonder if NA have eye on NTW3 throne ? ^^
