    Ran into this a few nights ago.. The bug is defnately back... :( We couldn't damage it and it couldn't damage our ship. Big waste of time and resources.

    Good not just us then, we did some this morning and they were fine,
    so it seems to be random.

    we just had this happen to us. Noticed that the pirate ship prior to this happening we could not board, after scuttleing his ship. The message we got was we could not use that while the ship was moving. so we killed that pirate to recieve the death certificate. Once we recieved this certifiacte we were unable to cause damage to the next 2 pirate ships. I am calling it a night

    I hit the cannot damage or be damaged bug before last patch. The pirate ships seem to occasionally take on trammy attributes.

    I've also have come across the can't board a moving pirate ship issue several times. I found though if I just take my boat and go to the front and back of the pirate boat and bump into it briefly, the pirate boat finally "stops" and I can board it.

    If this bug is back, then try crossing the server line to your south and then return to try again. That bandaid should hold up until another patch can fix the issue.
     
  9. this doesn't seem to happen in fel. i'm assuming some of these pirates are taking on the trammel ruleset and there is something making them act like player boats. try playing in felucca.

    If you don't see any damage...stop attacking. Cross the server line and return...problem solved and only one or two ammo lost. :thumbup:

    Yup, we've found a few as well. Didn't know about the server line trick, so we'll do that next time. Just moved on and tried til we found one we could beat the snot out of. But this does need fixing please Devs, if you can find five minutes in the near future!

    ran into this last night, couldn't damage pirate, tried the server line thing but it didn't work for me. I could see the damage to the dread pirate after 100 hvy grapeshot rounds(50 before i tried serverline and 50 after) however the pirate ship showed no damage.

    I did do 2 other pirate ships sorta ok except they continued firing after they were disabled. Also when i redeemed a commodity deed i had some hvy powder charges on, the heavy charges were bugged(weighed 10 stone each), although the going across server line trick worked to fix that( though had to do it twice as bag became bugged after first trip back and forth).

    also had abit of a problem with a pirate ship earlier that afternoon, it had 5 cannons and they all apparently hit at once. I went from no damage to my ship to scuttled after they fired 4 times(about 30-40 seconds time), not sure if that is normal as it never happened before.

    I noticed that if the pirates ship has no guns on deck,or if they disappear off the deck the ship cannot be damaged.also when i get the message i canot board ship cause its movin and its been scuttled. I move boat back few spaces and disabled ship will turn then you can board it. I noticed that if ship leaves your screen while fighting it their guns disappear and its a worthless cause. crossing server has done no good in this matter. 200 wasted charges last night with only 2 pirates thats a bit extreme and this needs to be fixed.if it has guns and they are firing you can disable the ship i have found.:thumbsup:
