They never really had an edge outside of forceboarding, which has been my point all along. What exactly did they lose that other ships didn't?

Yesterday was pretty awesome actually. We formed up a big convoy with sea striders to protect the trade ships. I recorded the whole thing using mudlets replay feature. Maybe one of these days I'll make a youtube video out of it. Five minutes into the trade run we ran straight into a pirate who was intending to intercept the trades ships and sank him. Good times.There is a pecking order to the oceans when it comes to ships and combat. Windcutters have never been able to stand up to sea striders, forceboarding aside, since even before the overhaul began. Nobody cared because the windcutter had a lot more utility back then to make up for this deficiency. The trouble is, with trades being so crappy for so long, cutter owners have been totally screwed trying to make them work in an ocean that is all about combat capability now (against other ships or monsters).The answer is not to beef up cutters. The answer is to beef up trades and give cutters a purpose again. The 200K deal was a small step in the right direction, but we need more. We really need the 25 bound credit and Mayan Crown deals back, even if they are rare.That being said, I'm not against wardiscs doing a small amount of hull damage again or something. I think giving them ballistas though might be a step too far, though I'm not totally against that either.
You didn't intercept a pirate looking to take down ships. Passed right by you guys without targeting or fire a shot. Was on my way to Zanzi to do the trade route. You guys gave chase and outnumbered someone not looking for a fight. You're not some hero. You're griefy at best.
I wasn't talking about crew/shipmates numbers/xp, I imagine Morthif is aware of that and has a fully crewed ship!
