3devious, you make a good point, Parallel Kingdom will slaughter your battery. I was able to play Pirates and Traders all day practically without any problems from my battery.
An error I have noticed quite a few times with the game, and it isn't anything that really hinders game play, but I've noticed when you click the distance option, the dialogue is worded as if the enemy got away from you, not the other way around. Like I said, nothing big, just something that caught my attention.
Finally, I understand the omission of what I am about to request, but I would really like a save feature. I had a good game going and 1 ship got lucky enough to take out my hull and it was game over for me, discouraging for me to even continue to try again.
Finally again, I don't think the beginning ships are exactly well suited for their descriptions. the barque I have noticed, performs much better in pirating than the sloop does. the barque has much more ballanced traits with a decent cargo hold to haul away the loot that you get from your kills. perhaps a way to make a trading ship specific for trading and a fighter boat that is actually good at fighting? (only advantage I have seen from the sloop is the max crew members)
