Well, it was inevitable after I got back into the game that I would have a ship break.
Today it was El Martillo de Dios’s time to go. Its foremast just broke while I was taking it off when it got hit. I didn’t pull too hard or in a weird direction, it was just its time to go.
RIP to the first Inquisition ship both that I owned and that The Inquisitor did. I know I had a second one but pretty sure its sails broke too years ago. Inquisition fleets will never be the same.March 12, 2019 at 5:28 PM #3715
I suppose I have a few “Fallen Heroes” I’ve talked about before. Though not many that have been around a long time that are permanently destroyed or that I’m unable to use. A few WELL-used ships have been hit so often that their mast tabs have gotten a bit loose – I can think of the Enterprise and El Acorazado off the top of my head.March 12, 2019 at 7:46 PM #3719MechavelliParticipant
I don’t take the masts off for this reason. I’ve broken a couple masts and hull parts though, while building. L’Eroica and Le Richelieu both have broken masts, but I can fix them with superglue or something. The Clear Wind has a broken hull tab, so that one definitely can’t be fixed.March 12, 2019 at 8:24 PM #3720

Haha, it’s totally worth it for me, to an extreme degree. They’re supposed to be taken out, that’s how the game works and is built to work. It takes a LOT of gameplay for things to get loose. I’ve played about 428 games and almost none of my ships have the issue.
Imagine how lame this would look:March 12, 2019 at 9:09 PM #3722JackParticipant
That’s a beautiful mess.
I usually take masts off, but sometimes I’ll leave them on if they seem stuck. For whatever reason, they seem to have good days and bad days. El Martillo’s wasn’t stuck or anything, it just broke with almost no force needed 🙁March 12, 2019 at 9:15 PM #3723MechavelliParticipant
You guys have a point but the risk of breaking the masts is too high for me. I’d rather have a status drawing or something on a piece of paper. It won’t be the same though… I guess we can try taking the masts off if it gets too confusing, thoughMarch 27, 2019 at 6:18 PM #4009EdParticipant
I use dice to represent how many masts a ship has left after a brand new ship broke its mast tab right out of the pack.March 28, 2019 at 6:24 PM #4024ChrisParticipant
I generally utilize a dry-erase marker to cross out the affected mast(s) on the ships base plate.May 29, 2021 at 6:23 PM #13268

At least it’s a common ship you can probably find for cheap!
