I have attached NiccisWAr 40+ times in the past 20 minutes and every time I win the battle then go back to the ship, their Health is only 1% lower than what it was when I attacked. Instantly refilled to 62% for example from 63% when I attacked and won. The more you attack, the health you return to see every time is 1% less than it was when you attacked.
Ship sinks but is instantly returned to perfect odd number of health??
A wee bit o'rum may make this senseless, but try for yourself.
I'm on his crew and he attacks me too, he's like 20 levels below me but he's got 4 times the number of my crew so he's waay higher on attack/defense than I so I can't retaliate, I'll lose big time. I have to say oh well...that's the life of being a pirate! Lol
