They gonna let us fight while in the boats. and if so any sea to land type seige equipment, would add another dimension to keep takes and have they released a pic of the new alb frontier.

No Alb fronteir yet. Naval warfare is expected but not confirmed.

They've promised boats in the fronteirs (HMS Awesome, you just wait). Combat however is a different matter.

Sounds pretty lame, but lets wait and see how it is done...
I do like the regular parts of the map's though. Minstrel and scout will do pretty well I hope :)

I expect fronteirs will be different though, otherwise it's just going to be awkward if you meet an enemy ship and can't actually do anything.

If you mez the entire crew on a ship will it just keep going straight ahead? Would be awefully annoying tbh :-/

Hopefully though combat won't be centered around boat warfare. If the ranged attackers are a lot stronger in that particular area I don't see it as a major problem really. However if boat warfare does become a large part of RvR I would expect some new weapons or equipment only usable by tanks... Perhaps ;)

Imagine the scene:-



The Enraged Seagull Pooh's on you doing 154 (-12) damage.

The only way they could NOT have boat battles would be to disable the boats in the RvR zone. Otherwise anyone in a boat would be invulnerable and able to just leggit from anyone whos close, or even just stand there and laugh at the surrounding 50 enemy boats which would be plain stupid.

Implementing boat fighting in RvR would be great :D Put a number of cannons on the sides imo to give the tanks something to do whilst the casters blast em to kingdom come on deck :D Of course now I'm just dreaming though, looking at the existing boats, there isn't an upper and lower deck for cannons etc.

Okay, I'll stop rambling now but how much fun would it be if you could do that :D

u cant enter combat at all on a boat/shark so you just sit there like a mofo till u either jump out of boat/shark or arive at yur destination.

p.s looks cool when yur riding a hammerhead shark :)
