    When I had my Gargish Galleon my grouo received the Heavy Flame Cannonball a few times and a few light ones as well. When we went over to my Orc ship my group has only received light flame cannonballs. Is there a particular reason we are not getting the heavy ones anymore? Also, we have yet to receive any of the frost cannonballs. Can anyone shed some light on why we're only receiving 1 kind?

    Thanks

    When we first started doing the pirates, we recieved a frost cannon ball and a heavy fire cannon ball one time. Since then we also have only recieved light fire cannon balls. (When cannon ball happened to be the reward)

    Has anyone reported or have known results from firing one of these reward balls? We have been bestowed with a light frost ball last evening - not sure what best to do with it.

    We attempted to use a light.....left our front cannon light just to be able to use the special cannon ball...and didn't really notice that it helped much. Until we know for sure ours are being saved.

    Ditto, still have never recieved another frost cannonball. Just the one time when it all first started. Now it is only either orc ship peice (no complaint there) or a light fire cannon ball, but no frosts and no heavies.

    According to tonight's UStream chat, they are going to look into it to see if a problem does indeed exist.

    I will look into it, but I can say that nothing has changed code wise that would have made it stop.

    It could just be that the RNG is hating on you. :\

    Then the RNG has been hating all of us since approximately 1 -2 weeks after high seas started.

    I can report that I have done over 70 pirate quests as the owner of the ship. In that time I have gotten 25 light flaming cannonballs, 1 light frost cannonball and rest were ship parts. I have used nothing but a heavy cannon on my ship the entire time so yes the range is way off.

    One player that goes out on these quests with me often has only gotten 2 ship parts and then 48 light Flaming cannonballs in a row. Talk about being cursed. It has become a running joke that every time he will get another light flaming cannonball.

    I know the RNG is prone to streaks... but at this point, I have over 350 Light Flame Cannonballs, and zero heavy flame... and zero frost...

    Something's Fishy here!

    Got a heavy flame last evening. :)ambivalent :(
    The 5 rounds prior to the aforementioned, Bigglesby bestowed 3 light frosts, one light flame, one boat part.

    Sorry to hear the Vallend report of the 48 light flames in a row.
    And Tazar, dude, 350 balls & other what nots :eek:.... you have turned true sea scallywag...better pack some lemons and limes on your boat.:p arr

    Wow, first I've heard of ANYONE getting any cannon ball other then the light fire since shortly after high seas was released. Wonder if they could have slid in a fix??

    I did around 60 pirate quests meanwhile. This is what I gathered so far:

    42 light flame cannonballs
    1 heavy flame cannonball (got it this week, never thought they existed)
    1 light frost cannonball
    3 heavy frost cannonballs

    I guess the RNG hates all of us.
