Subject: Some Pictures, But Also A Question About A Misprint?!   PostPosted: Thu Jan 25, 2018 5:42 pm Reply with quote

I FINISHED THE CURSED FACTION TODAY! As well my my FN set. Some really cool new ships to play with!

You guys will definitely be seeing some great battle reports with these awesome pieces I got.

However I did notice that the Polaris from the Nordic Raiders Pack, has a Cursed flag printed on the deck plate. I know it's actually for the Viking faction, so is this how they printed all of them or is this just a one of misprint?

Because you can clearly see the flag on the mast is a Viking one, and the database here on MT says it's Viking.

All known copies of Polaris were misprinted like that, but it is supposed to be a Viking ship.

(If you ever need to "prove" this to anyone, it's listed in the misprints section on the second page of the Pirate Code.)

So far, the Loki’s Revenge has absolutely surpassed my expectations...

Thanks for the information. Kinda weird that they still shipped them out even with an error so large.

WK shipped with a lot of errors. I know of a few ships that were printed with differing cannons on their deck plates versus masts, and there were ships like Burning Man that were shipped without their relevant keywords (galley, in this case.)

Yes I was noticing that as well. Does it technically still get Galley benefits though?

One would assume so. I think it was just an oversight.

Subject: USS Oregon   PostPosted: Fri Jan 26, 2018 6:46 am Reply with quote

While assembling ships with my nephew I ran across a misprint I hadn't noticed before. The USS Oregon from Rise of the Fiends has the letter printed in reverse on one side of the hull.

Yes, that has always bothered me about USS Oregon . You can see the misprint in the gallery picture. It really is a terrible ship. Bad for gameplay, from the most common and overproduced set, and on top of all that, a misprint. Shocked Laughing Not to mention it could have been yet another great American 4 masted schooner (they excel within that ship type), but instead it was a wasted opportunity.

You know you've done something wrong in design when a ship could add +L to its base move and still not be remotely overpowered at the same point cost. Surprised

All things considered it was a relatively minor issue, and it was certainly a lot less expensive for WK to let players just deal with it on their own than to reprint thousands of copies of that one ship. That doesn't make it right, but it's understandable why they did what they did.

There was a stretch in the middle where quite a few LE ships were missing their ship type keywords, particularly Turtle Ship and Galley. Most of them have been noted in the Pirate Code, but a few might have slipped though, and the database here at MT may not show them all either.

Yeah I guess it's not a big deal, it seems like they really scrambled on the Nordic Raiders pack though. What with the missing piece and the rather obvious, albeit not game breaking misprint.

I've definitely noticed ships like you mentioned where they forgot keywords
