Ship glitch?

Jan 17, 2012
It used to be that when you were battling a ship, and another ship sailed within battle range, that ship opened fire.

Now it seems it just drops anchor, and waits until my ship damage goes over 50% then moves in to board.

If it doesn't fall, it stays there until I leave or attack it.

Is this new?

If you are close enough to both ships, both enemy ships will attack you. I prefer for one enemy ship to hang back instead of both ships attacking me and pounding me into the ground. I also like being able to pick up my booty from the ship I beat without having to fight off another ship.
