I was somewhere in the middle of this madness the other night. Three guild members and I went out to see the action and invariably joined the fight. We chased and killed a few clipper parties and stole their ships before joining up with the main fleet. The majority of the time after that I was on the Excelsior, handing out cannonballs, healing and throwing pot-shots at reds in the water. Our main objective was to stop the East faction from killing the world boss, Kraken. It turned into an epic griefing session that raged for almost 10 hours, guilds coming and going as afternoon turned into evening into night into midnight.
It was all fun and games until I DC’d. By the time I logged back in, I was leagues from the fleet. I gave up after three attempts to make it back to the frontlines ended in my death. The last time I was SO close before being stunned and then murderlized in the water. It was pushing 1 AM on a weekday and way past time for me to be in bed. I said my goodnights and called it game over.

A couple of stills from my POV - There's such lag and insanity during combat, no time for pics
I don't know how people have the balls to stream.
Between the lag and bumper cars collision detection it can be brutal
And in comes...THE KRAKEN
I was long gone before his appearance. Thanks to Pace22/Cosairs for capturing video.
