Our group of friends have been playing on and off since launch. We decided to hop on and test out the brigantine. No sooner did we leave port and we ran into trouble. We've never ran into the Kraken before. Luckily we were recording when it happened. No one knew what to do. This one moment lead to us playing more often and even started streaming our adventures!
So we ran into this Brig earlier in the game, they attacked us & got sunk twice. Then later on, we spotting them sailing by again, this is the result. I guess they learned their lesson. Don't mess with the S.S Merciless :D
